In his book, Gates otherwise praised Clinton in a way that “might be used in a political endorsement,” Woodward wrote in his review.

Gates wrote:“I found her smart, idealistic but pragmatic, tough-minded, indefatigable, funny, a very valuable colleague, and a superb representative of the United States all over the world.”

We should all have a disdain for the military, while recognizing that at times they are a necessary evil. The need for a military is a reflection of the fact that humans have not yet evolved beyond their savagery.
You have benefitted from that too. You sleep safe in your bed at night because of men willing to do violence on your behalf! We don't want parades, we don't want medals, just a simple thank you every now and then would be nice! BUT you would rather feel pity and empathy for the savages causing the problems and feel distain for the ones that are sent to correct it! F*CK YOU, you can kiss my a*s instead!! I have more respect for the people that I have helped kill, then c*ck suckers like you! At least they have a cause they are willing to die for! WHAT IS YOURS, or will it change next week too!!!??

Of course "Republicans use Gates' new book to hammer Clinton, Biden." That's like reporting that a starving reptile went after Bambi.

Yes, his real name is Rick O'Shea. He used the name Barack Obama to get elected.

How about your "name", Spike? Were you named after something that entered your skull in an accident?

Tone it down to hysteria, looneytunes. My criticsism is toward the military itself, not the poor souls it uses as pawns to carry out its often questionable objectives.

That should be as plain as the nose on your ass.

<quoted text>"Appointed" is the appropriate word for Bush. But Obama is hardly "anyone". He is a decent, strong, visionary man being thwarted by the ignorant and bigoted right, not just because he is black, but because he is black and so much damn smarter than them. How dare he!
Yup, bush was appointed. He lost the election. He only won because his buddies on the USSC threw out the election and appointed him. So many on the right, try to claim that had the ballots been legally counted, he would have won, but that admits the election was thrown out. Besides he lost. The media consortia discovered that no matter how you counted the ballots, Gore won. Of course the right wing media was very reluctant to report that. Even the New York Times made an editorial decision not to report the result proving bush should not be in office right after the 9/11 attacks. Every one knows this, except for the Fox news junkies who still buy every nonsensical fabrication as if it is fact.

Liberals are to be disdained, and are never necessary.

I appreciate your honesty. Most liberals feign love for our troops.

A lifelong republican comes out against a democrat? Is this really news? Would anyone expect anything other than a hatchet job by this moron? The only real news is that Obama is still stupid enough to keep appointing republicans to positions of authority. I mean after the fiasco with Gates, to appoint Chuck Hagel to anything but a prison term is way beyond stupid.
Oh now he's a moron. When he was in Obama's cabinet no one uttered those words.
