Call me naive, but when I was in the military, failure to report was taken seriously. Skipping a pee test was taken even more seriously. And Bush DID have a DUI in the state of Maine. And gee, maybe he's not an alcoholic, but someone who admitted to drinking "too much", had a DUI and lost his license, and totally quit drinking ANY form of alcohol for the next 40 years.....meets some people's definition of alcoholism. Kudos to him for beating it! I do respect him for that, if nothing else.

    GREAT POST, ROGER! OOPS, YOU HAIN'T ROGER...ARE YOU?

    I'm sorry, I get you two confused. But I shoulda known. One of you is a bleeding heart liberal, and the other is a flaming independant. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    My fault for the confusion, but you must admit, as you vacillate through life, it's difficult to recognize which pile of manure you are standing on.

    This man is a powerful speaker. If he could rally more of like mind into Congress, there might be a chance of change.

    It's an interesting contrast between his background being more "modest" than Obama's & coming forth with a very different view of what the Constitution was meant to provide ... equal opportunity, but not equal outcomes.

    I haven't yet read the details on the Article 32 issue. If that issue were to be overcome this man could come out strongly in head-to-head with Obama ... and likely a lot of other Republicans.

    WTF? Wow, just wow? I'll say. I went and listened to this guy. Here is my favorite quote:

    If you're here to get your musket, to fix your bayonet, and to charge into the enemy ranks, you're my brother and sister in this fight. You need to leave here understanding one word, that is bayonets, and charge this enemy for your freedom, for your liberty...
    That's some pretty f'in scarry stuff. This guy has no business getting anywhere near the levers of power in this country.

    Thanks for the education.

    I don't care for his analogies and metaphors. OK?

    Those citizen militias out training on the weekends don't need to hear his analogies and metaphors.

    Hmmm...labeling (incorrectly, by the way), name calling, and cute little metaphors about animal feces......

    How old are you? My 6 year old got a chuckle out of that one too, when I explained what manure is!

    But doesn't address the issues. Guess he's got nothing to intelligent to say. But don't let that stop you!

    Having served honorably for 14 years, I fail to see humor in failure to report, and skipping drug tests! I know the Army doesn't see humor in it either. I'm sure the Air Force has similar views.
