Secretary of Defense: Only Military Issue Obama Cared About was Gays


Obama sent 1,600 Americans to die in Afghanistan but never believed in it or cared about it. The only military issue he did care about was gays in the military. And that’s according to his own Secretary of Defense.

This is what a liberal at war looks like.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates sharply questions President Obama’s “passion” for military matters in his forthcoming memoir, and claims that practically the only time he saw that in the president was during his push to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

“One quality I missed in Obama was passion, especially when it came to the two wars,” Gates wrote. “In my presence, Bush — very unlike his father — was pretty unsentimental. But he was passionate about the war in Iraq; on occasion, at a Medal of Honor ceremony or the like, I would see his eyes well up. I worked for Obama longer than Bush, and I never saw his eyes well up.”

Gates went on to suggest that the president was far more emotional about repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” — the policy barring openly gay people from serving in the military.

He wrote that “the only military matter, apart from leaks, about which I ever sensed deep passion on his part was ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ For him, changing the law seemed to be the inevitable next step in the civil rights movement.”

Gates went on to write about how he believes that the president cares about the troops, but over the next few years gave few public speeches about the stakes in Afghanistan and did not show the troops he was really in the fight to win.

“Given his campaign rhetoric about Afghanistan, I think I myself, our commanders, and our troops had expected more commitment to the cause and more passion for it from him,” Gates wrote.

If only Obama had been told that the Taliban stone gays to death, he might have been in it to win it.

    I don’t even know what to do. None of this surprises me.

      He’s a semi-autonomous puppet. And he is accountable for his actions.

        hes just taking orders. george soros & the gang are in charge. they let obama make smaller decisions, & have guests @the white house.

    “If only Obama had been told that the Taliban stone gays to death, he might have been in it to win it.”

    Nah!!! He would have just said that the Taliban doesn’t understand the peaceful nature of Islam or blamed it on the American troops.

    “If only Obama had been told that the taliban stone gays to death, he might have been in it to win it.”

    Funny, but no. Obama went through the “Reverend” Wrights reeducation program to force biological gays to believe they were straight and marry straight women and have families. He loathes his se xuality and only promotes gays and women in the military because that loathing of his own effeminancy and weakness makes him hate real men — and he hates the military on general Marxist principle and so weakens it every way he can.

    He doesn’t care about his fellow gays. Not outside of the bedroom.

    When are you going to admit that Obama is obviously gay? Ask a gay friend if you don’t believe it.

      I wonder if Barack and Michelle get divorced if it would come out at such time.

      A lot of gay men in Wright’s church have ended up dead. There are a lot of conspiracy theories, but what is beyond dispute is if they were gay and that they are now dead. A lot of smoke I say.

      • laura r

        yes 3 deaths before the primaries. no doute hes bi sexual. but who cares? i dont even care that he had a nose job. we have other things to worry about. btw, the taliban is very gay!

        • John

          Respectfully, it matters. They are going after Christie, who I am kind of luke warm on, for Bridgegate.

          There has been speculation that these 3 men were murdered. It might be a coincidence due to living in Chicago on the down low is dangerous. But if that was not the cause and it was due to the campaign that is something we need to know.

          Also it matters because it is one of those things that the press is always keeping from us. They know and omit the information or they do not dig deep on purpose

          Tom Brokaw and Charlie Rose on the Charlie Rose Show.

          ROSE: I don’t know what Barack Obama’s worldview is.

          BROKAW: No, I don’t either.

          ROSE: I don’t know how he really sees where China is.

          BROKAW: We don’t know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.

          ROSE: I don’t really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?

          BROKAW: You know that’s an interesting question.

          ROSE: He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational (sic) speeches, two of them.

          BROKAW: I don’t know what books he’s read.

          ROSE: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?

          BROKAW: There’s a lot about him we don’t know.

        I don’t think they are married, where’s the license? Neither one has a law license, they both had to surrender them, And we never saw his medical records, or school records from Punahou, Columbia, Harvard, Occidental. And besides, the Government says 72% of all blacks are born out of wedlock so what’s the chances that they’re married?

      Michelle looks like a butch lesbian, may she be the dominant partner in this sick relationship?

      • lessthantolerant

        Mooch loves getting serviced by her Secret Service detail. She really does not care how often Bath House Barry does Reggie.

    Obama’s hatred for everything military, just as all Liberal/Progressives do, led him to undermine the military forever by pushing them on our country. We now have an epidemic of gay men RAPING young recruits which contributes strongly to the rise in the suicide rate of late. The loss of the manly pride military service brought to recruits is a permanent and long term damage well calculated to destroy our military. How long do we continue to see our country go down without defending it is my question.

    • laura r

      that is excatly what the govt wants, to distroy america. first the colleges, then the media, then the quality of life, now the military. i would also be scared of trans men attacking women. (women who now are men). rapes will aslo run rampant in highschools as now there are coed bathrms. had enough?

  • carltjohnson

    Of course…he is gay!
    If you understand that giving in and practicing homosexuality shows a lack of self control over the forces of nature with in you. For the average gay, it doesn’t harm others, only those in the act. BUT, as a leader, that’s a different story. It shows bad decision making, poor judgment and a general lack of discipline, thought and control. Sprinkle in a lot of poor mentoring and stupidity and you have a disaster! You end up in…well… the here and now.

    • laura r

      its part of dividing people. i dont think we should focus on obama being gay, a waste of energy. any left wing liberal would want openly gay & trans people in the army. the issue for me is can a man wear a dress off duty?

  • worldwatchman

    It’s pretty simple to understand this pimple on America’s ass…….he’s bi-sexual. The ONLY reason he’s still married is to keep up the appearance of being a straight man and being our so-called President. It’s all about politics and Americans view of him.

  • turk182

    “once is accidental,twice is coincidence,three times is enemy action.”
    It’s all part of his efforts to weaken the US economically,politically,and militarily.
    1.He’s blocked domestic energy production,he’s hindered our economy terribly.
    2.He’s insulted our allies and aided our enemies,like the Muslim Brotherhood.
    3.He’s weakened our military,both through the weak economy and by shutting down needed programs such as missile defense,F-22 program,signing New START,and so on.

    Comrade Obama IS the muslim Manchurian Candidate.

    There’s a reason why post-college,Comrade Hussein traveled to Pakistan. it’s not because he was a Christian. There’s a reason why Comrade Hussein was aided in getting into college by Saudi money and influence.

  • Cappy1437

    Why is this not surprising? This reflects his life and his agenda.

  • Softly Bob

    The Taliban don’t stone gays to death, only those who they believe are gay. Homosexuality has a different definition in Islam from the definition that exists in the sane World.
    The Taliban are notorious sodomites. Buggering and shirt-lifting are one of their major forms of recreation. And little boys are their specialty.

  • lessthantolerant

    Why do you think he code name is Bath House Barry? Our boy king has quite a reputation in Chicago and their bath houses.
    I can see how he would be very interested I protecting fudge packers.

  • The Mad Jewess

    Maybe he is gay.
