That is why the President is disarming the military, to give benefits to the spouses of the gays.

They're only doing what theyre told by their wacko-in-chief. Obama and his relentlessly effort to weaken and destroy our military...this is part of Phase II of Obama's Operation Destroy America.

Weaken the military, weaken our economy, get rid of our nukes, embolden the gays, etc....

RIP America

didnt see or hear the interview, but my guesss is, he's more of a man, and a credit to the military, than any of the q ueers that manage to hide in the rear echelon for 20 years and qualify.

Minor benefits until DOMA if finally overturned in June. Though I have to admit being able to be stationed with my husband would have been nice all those years we were on opposite sides of the planet.

Remind us again of your stellar front line service?

Oh that's right, you were too busy hiding in your mommy's closet when the recruiter came around.
