    Default Obama out to "emasculate" the image of the Marines?

    The radical left, including Obama, have a distaste for strong masculine, pro-American institutions. The Marine Corps are among those at the top of these institutions. Obama wants to change their head wear. Is there a political agenda here to "emasculate" their image? Some think so. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...ar-girly-hats/
    The modern liberal's concept of "freedom" is being a government bureaucrat who is able to control a small part of other peoples' lives.

    Emasculate? It's not like it's a pink fez, or something.

    As as cool as the old one? Not to me, but I'm not a fan of skinny jeans either, and they seem to be popular now, too.

    It seems like Obama should have higher priorities right now, rather than ******* with Marine Corps hats. Perhaps like FIXING the totally ****** up Obamacare web site. It seems like Obama has his priorities out of line.

    Marine Corps hats are fine and have been for almost 100 years. They don't need fixing.

    ...I wonder how BHO knew about the hats..did he hear it on the news. Seems he's interested in fashion but not living up to his own job description.
    We are all interconnected, please be kind.

    Jez. If you were never a Marine you will never get it. Marines pride themselves on looking sharp and squared away. We don't appreciate others trying to dress us up like clowns or bell boys. Secondly, Why the hell is the president who has never served involved in uniform design? He's got nothing else to do?

    A slight change in the uniform doesn't emasculate marines but whining like a little bitch about it sure does. Some folks will find anything to cry about and gin up the Obama hates the military ********.

    Missing from all of this is any evidence whatsoever that President Obama has anything to do with this, or even any knowledge of it. Pretty much everything I see from a quick Google search sprung up in the last 4 hours, and is all the same story in basically the same words bouncing back and forth across the con echo chamber. In real life, the military services have uniform boards that manage this type of stuff--and even here, the article says the troops are being polled on their preference, and General Amos will make the final call.

    Man, you people are gullible.

    I don't think wearing those is going to make the marines do the money python soldier dance.

    This one sure as hell does. Thank goodness we have Fox News exposing these highly important military matters. Why report on the sorry state of the VA when you could whine about slight uniform changes and claim Obama hates the military as a result.
