    That wolf may finally help us Humans and bears come to reasonable compromise.

    God bless him.

    Very disappointing. He should have been there.

    Can we at least hear you line of reasoning?

    Nah. I try to stay out of political debates. I do want Beat, Kyuuei, and the other soldiers here to know that there are some of us who genuninely support them.

    I'm pretty certain that Obama will do something to smooth things over (like sending a signed thank you letter to each of the medal of honor recipients who were present at that ball).

    But still, kind of shitty that he wasn't there.

    Antisocial, why is it even necessary to ask? Look at what happened and see what a shame it is...

    I managed to skim about 2/3rds of these comments, so forgive me if I state something already covered.

    Kyuuei made a lot of the points I would make. For those of you non-military or from other countries, I don't think you really understand this one.

    First, I doubt many of you know just what kind of heroism is required to earn the MOH -- most are awarded posthumously. The Forrest Gump scene is a funny but not unrealistic example of actions that warrant this award.

    Second, the President has an official position of leadership over these soldiers, Commander in Chief. And this group represents probably the only group that made an oath to obey the president's orders--the kind of orders that risked their lives in the first place. Its really simple people, Obama is the top military leader.

    All the choices he did make look like ass-kissing choices. Attendance for this one was probably his only responsibility that evening.

    It's not personal on my part.

    I have great respect for anyone that joins the service. I think it's honorable to serve and fight. My little brother and best friend are in the army. They are both very decent, wonderful human beings.

    The allegations in the OP, however... It's conjecture.

    The significance of this seems more symbolic than real. Like when people complained when Obama didn't wear the American flag lapel pin. Big deal.....

    +1. Suggesting that Obama didn't do something horrible isn't the same as not appreciating those who serve.
