Nailing Obama on McChrystal
“I really do think it’s a very tragic thing that Gen. McChrystal was released. When I go back in history and look at some of the confrontations between American generals and American presidents, this is a very minor thing,” said West. ... “I don’t think there was a threat to this president’s authority or strategy,” West said. He said McChrystal’s remarks in Rolling Stone “could have been handled off-line.”
Not surprisingly it's candidates -- who need to keep their base revved up -- who are saying this, not current GOP members of Congress. It's also the conservative media. The American Spectator's Phil Klein compares the McChrystal response to the one Democrats gave generals who quit during the Bush years; George Neumayr straight-up endorses McChrystal.
