Chain of Command
President Obama has replaced General McChrystal with General Petraeus.
I haven’t really thought too much about General McChrystal’s comments regarding President Obama, but I am of the mind that American generals should have complete respect for the authority and the office of the presidency while in uniform. We are the United States of America, not a second rate banana republic.
General McChrystal should have been smarter than to express his negative opinions of President Obama, though harmless, it is a small step towards chipping away of the established civilian controlled military.
I am almost feeling sorry for my fellow Hawaiian Barry Obama. His healthcare push has grinded to halt his legislative agenda and the oil spill is ruining his presidency. He’s certain to lose one or both houses of congress this November and then General McChrystal’s expresses his private sentiments of an inexperienced presidency which most Americans are coming around to view him as.
