Did this idiot not get the "We are here to protect Freedom, not practice it!" speech in Boot Camp? Because that's the only excuse for his actions that doesn't require that he either be an idiot or an attention whore. And I somehow think that if _I_ had been as vocal about my opinions regarding Bush Jr. as this guy was about Obama, the wingnuts who are defending him would have just as loudly claimed that I deserved whatever punishment came my way. Except in that case, they'd actually be right. The military in not like civilian life, where the worst that usually happens when you insult management is a few hurt feelings and some lost productivity. On the battlefield, good order and discipline is literally a matter of life and death. This is why I kept my opinions to my own damn self, shut up, and did my job. Pity this Marine can't say the same.
