http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/10/07/cadets_cheer_romney_slam_of_bam/ Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney gave a major foreign policy speech yesterday attacking President Obama at the Citadel. The cadets in attendance wildly cheered and applauded those attacks, a fact that many right-leaning pundits commented on. From Rush Limbaugh's show yesterday: (emphasis mine) Is anyone else disappointed that the Citadel would allow itself to be used as campaign fodder for a political candidate? I understand that Citadel cadets are not technically in the military yet, but the mere fact that they are cadets in uniform cheering comments derogatory about the commander in chief is problematic. It makes it easy for folks like Mr. Limbaugh to tell his audience of millions that the president's policies are doubted by all those military experts over there at one of the most prestigious senior military colleges in the U.S. His argument goes: Romney says the President's foreign policy will make America weak --> those folks attending in military uniform cheered --> the military doubts the president and his policies --> you should too Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that military members can't hold political opinions. But, it seems to me that those in the military (or, in the case of Citadel cadets, closely associated with it) should keep such opinions out of the public domain, because it will be used by partisans to color the military as a whole. Thoughts?
