    A Navy Seal “soldier”? A swabbie maybe, but certainly not a soldier. A soldier is Army…..a flyboy is Air Force, a jarhead is Marines, the Coast Guard is coasties, and a bubblehead is in the Submarine Force. Get in step Danziger.

    We do/did (in my case) so Mr. Limbaugh, et. al., from both sides of the spectrum, can FREELY express their views.

    BTW: I have NEVER heard Mr. Limbaugh or ANY others on the right, express the views you are showing above. He and the others have the utmost respect for the military and pay them due respect daily!

    Please, Mr. Danziger, try to employ a modicum of truth in your reporting.

    Mr. Clark Kent: You still here?

    I thought you renounced your citizenship!

    Just can’t leave the good old American bucks behind, eh?

    Loyalties a little skewed, I’d say.

    kreole, Bill - Danziger is a decorated veteran who served in Vietnam. I suspect his use of “soldier boy” is to emphasize how little Rushbo knows. From wikipedia: “Danziger served in the United States Army from 1967 until 1971. An intelligence officer and linguist during the Vietnam War, he was awarded the Bronze Star and Air Medal in 1970.”

    Lucky? It is called thoughtful, intelligent leadership. So good to have a grownup at the helm.

    Irrelevant, HOWGOZIT. kreole and Bill were saying rather strongly that Danziger is ignorant of the military or being dishonest because of one word. I am pointing out that whether you agree with him or not, Danziger has significant and direct military experience, which has in turn fed into his views of war. Their arguments are invalid. Doesn’t mean they have to agree with him! I don’t always agree with Danziger, his “leftist” view notwithstanding.

    Jeff D: 5/5/11 is right on the money - indeed, why do we protect folks (dare I call them fellow citizens?) like that? We just have to keep reminding ourselves, different strokes for different folks - in a democracy.

    r-snoozenam: here’s where it comes from: http://www.mediaite.com/online/rush-limbaugh-on-bin-laden-kill-barack-obama-owes-us-an-apology/ Why would you ever assume that this fat pig would ever sincerely appreciate this president? Also: the word soldier is commonly used for Navy Seals. Try actually looking it up my stupids.

    SEALs and SEABEES are specifically NOT “swabbies”, nor do even the blue-water types appreciate the term. “Soldier” is anyone carrying arms to defend this nation, something Rush, Beck, Cheney, Perle, Feith, Wolfowitz, Rice and most others never did, Rumsfield was “peace time” Air Force, and never got close to war, until the 9/11 at the Pentagon.

    Danziger is indeed a true veteran, though, yeah, that “military intelligence” part of his background probably makes even him chuckle.

    I’ve heard Limbaugh express the sentiments in the toon on many occasions. Which is why I stopped listening to him.

    My son called from Panama once (during the “W” era) when he was with the teams, in discussing Bush/Cheney and the blowhards like Limbaugh, he pointed out the SEALs and others held exactly the view expressed by Danziger’s “soldier”. I’ve felt the same way for a long time. As both my son and I are disabled veterans, I think our experiences give us some insight into what Danziger is saying here.

    In recent days, blowhards have indeed put me in a “mood”. I salute ALL our true soldiers, as does Danziger, and appreciate that THIS President DOES appreciate, and trust them.

    Our MILITARY did the job, even the SEALs had to have good support from others, as well as a President who recognized the real mission, and told them to ACT!

    I am fed up with the blowhards and chickenhawks who have benefitted from the efforts, and deaths, of our soldiers. I’m tired of seeing them profit, financially or emotionally, from unwarranted actions in Afghanistan and Iraq, while those “soldiers” paid the financial and emotional price, with their families, to protect their “right” to express themselves, no matter how stupidly.

    Thank you, Jeff, for saying it so clearly, and simply.

    I feel that a lot of people are disrespecting our troops by questioning their accomplishment in taking down Bin Laden. An e-mail I received today one removed from a Republican activist declared he wants to see the photos and states that they will now concentrate on finding the long form of Obama’s birth certificate. Where has this nut been?

    “Donald Trump is now demanding from Obama to show his real birth certificate and the photos of Osama. Trump said we don’t even know if Obama was born in Hawaii or if Osama was killed in Pakistan. For all we know Osama could of been killed in Hawaii and Obama born in Pakistan. Or maybe they are the same person, they are about the same height. ”

    Fair point, Fairport!

    Of course the Navy guys call Marines- body GUARDS. When we supported them in ‘Nam, using Army helicopters, something else came up.

    ^ Maybe back in the 70’s but not when I served in the late 80’s. Marines were to busy to guard anything but other Marines.

    It’s like this jmatt.

    Bush ‘caught’ Saddam by launching a wholescale invasion of his country, an invasion that cost more American lives than the 9/11 attacks, hundreds of billions of dollars, and that’s not even mentioning the Iraqi civilians who died in that conflict.. Saddam was no threat to America at the time, and in fact, Bush made things a whole lot worse, by invading Iraq..

    First of all, that invasion was what made Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi. Nobody had ever heard of the guy before then, and most likely nobody would have today.

    Second, Zarqawi was only ‘caught’ after The Bush administration had previously refused to go after him…on numerous occasions.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4431601/ns/nightly_news/t/avoiding-attacking-suspected-terrorist-mastermind/

    I believe that in strict, technical terms, this is known as ‘Closing the barn door after the horse has bolted,’

    Going after Saddam also gave the al-Qaeda a new source of revenue, btw

    http://articles.latimes.com/2007/may/20/nation/na-binladen20

    Oh, and note that the CIA under Bush found, “no significant leads’ in the hunt for Bin Laden as of 2007.

    As fof Khalid Sheik Muhammed, the Bush administration got plenty of credit for his capture at the time. I would however point out that it was the Pakistani police, not US military forces, who made the actual takedown.
