No Worries, he's just replacing them with less qualified, more racially diverse generals in the name name of political correctness.  He's also lowering the physical fitness standards for Rangers, Green Berets, and SEAls, you know, so we can have more diverse units there too. Idiocy at it's finest.

He has fired 159 in the last five years! This is kinda scary when you think about the possible reasons why...

Probably that, and also likely those fired won't drink the koolaid. ( just my opinion ).

Benghazi...one guy was fired for using counterfeit poker chips at a casino and the other was dismissed after something seen by another officer on personal time. I'm guessing drink or drugs.

Seriously guys, not everything is a conspiracy. There's enough real problems out there that you don't need to find a black helicopter over every tree line.

Ok, so one was using counterfiet chips, and another was allegedly doing something wrong. What about the other 198? Are there this many incompetent commanders? Nothing suspicious there even though that's an unheard of number of generals to be fired? Add to that the number of colonels ( next in line ) quitting? Doesn't raise any red flags?

So in your opinion it's normal for a President to fire 200 top commanders, mostly for "loss of faith"?

I have no idea what the normal number of firings is. Neither do you. Also, where are you getting this "loss of faith" thing from?

So In your opinion it's hunky dory that an American diplomat was murdered in a terrosit attack on American soil, and nobody is held accountable for failing to send aid or properly provide force protection to our embassy?

im always willing to believe the worst about Obama, but lets be fair and compare him to other presidents.
