You said "they fooled you." YOu offered NO proof. I asked you to prove I'd been "fooled," i.e. that the article was wrong. You have so far been unable to do so, but pretend that I have to "prove" something instead.
One more chance to prove the article wrong, au Jimbo. Then you will be dismissed.
Are you up for it, li'l fella?:)
Prove a propaganda hit piece wrong. It is by definition. Next. I called Harry Reids source, he confirmed it was false.

Just saw the disgraced General McChrystal on Hannity,(just been enjoying the crying and misery since the election over there on the right-wing propaganda network) and to my surprise he was praising President Obama, calling him “His Commander-in-Chief” and talking about Obama’s great leadership. He even pushed back when Hannity tried to bait him in by asking “After voting for President Obama back in 2008, who did you vote for this time?” And McChrystal refused to answer. The look on Hannity’s face was priceless. He wanted the General to disparage the President and say that he didn’t vote for him. But the military supports President Obama 100%.

What's next? Is Obama going to give them some 14 year old girls that want an education so CAIR can shoot them in the head at point blank range?
Isn't it past stupid at this point?

Always amusing when an anti-woman, racist homophobe right-winger attacks Mr. Obama hypocritically like this.

Do you realize how embarrassing it looks?:)

Mistrust? WHAT!?!? How could they mistrust a President who's been hiding his radical past for years? Who has never run anything of importance in his entire life? Who has no record of accomplishments or any real credentials? Who lies easily and often when it suits him?

What's the matter with the Pentagon? Don't they realize the people want Obama, who is clueless, grossly overrated, inexperienced and a complete amateur? We've chosen him precisely because he has never done anything - ever!

The Pentagon needs to get with the program and start hiring their pilots at Burger King, ship Captains at Toy R Us and their soldiers from geriatric wards. Incompetence is the the new competent! Inability is the new "go-to" quality. Don't they know that?

Jeez...get with the program. The military's new motto should be "Are you untrained, unqualified and inexperienced? NO PROBLEM! We'll make you a Colonel tomorrow, a General next week and Commander-in-Chief by next month!"

That said, McChrystal was a clown who was properly outed by the Rolling Stone article. Defense Dept. efforts to whitewash him by casting doubts on that article fool no one.
because Obama is a lying ass phony and the LSM doesn't give a crap now that Bush isn't president.

" a female senior aide to President Obama called the White House a hostile environment for women.
“This place would be in court for a hostile workplace,” former White House communications director Anita Dunn is quoted as saying.“Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.”"

He never "lied" about it, dunce, he said right from the start he'd try to "win" the war. It was one reservation I had about the guy at the time.

The media don't give a crap, that's true. Including Fox.
