"Your buying time, your a great example for our country right now, it's got some problems, you know it and I know it. It's got problems we don't have in the military. And you just hold the line my fine young soldiers, sailors, airman, and marines. You just hold the line until our country gets back to understanding and respecting each other, showing it, being friendly to one another, that Americans owe to one another, we're so dog gone lucky to be Americans."

You're blog sucks.

James Mattis is probably the sanest, most qualified, most honorable man in the Cabinet and the first person in the Presidential line of succession I wouldn't feel dread or panic at being POTUS.

It'd need to be a very bad day in DC, without him actually there for that to happen. #6 is a long way down for anything else.

Yep, i'm as libtardardo as they come and have no problem with President Mattis. I may disagree with some of his policies but I believe he is at least doing what he thinks is right for the country, everything 45 does is for 45.

Should I be the first one to say it? Much of the military rank and file, top to bottom, should take a good long look at themselves and the party they inexplicably support. Too many military voted Trump and they ought to be ashamed.

The military's kinda funny, what with being such a diverse group. When I was in the Coast Guard, a white shipmate from Montana voted for Obama while a black shipmate from California voted for McCain.

I'm not going anywhere with this anecdote, just always found that amusing.

In any other administration I wouldn't much care for Mattis, but at least he's a farking sane adult which is more than I can say for any of Trump's other picks.

I frequently liaise with Army personnel for my job, and I can't count how many times I hear the same tired Hillary shiat. Dudes, she lost. Get over it. Are they still okay with that simp running the country? Yes. Yes they are. Apparently Obama was the WORST EVAR and they never complained (lol!) so all the libs need to cram their cramholes shut.

We don't. That's just a narrative conservative lawmakers and talking heads like to push while they are actively farking over servicemembers and vets. It's a crazy, mixed up world though, because some liberals even serve and play with guns and wear uniforms and die in fake wars brought on by greed and daddy issues and everything.

Career-oriented troops favor Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump over his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton by a 3:1 margin, a new Military.com reader survey has found.

Maybe the military should get their own shiat together first.

This.

I've never subscribed to that "military people are better than the rest of us" bullshiat, but their support of President Joffrey proves most of them aren't even as good. Not as smart, anyway.

Keep pushing that bullshiat narrative. I would be considered "left" by most common political scales, yet I'm a veteran from a family of veterans (maternal grandfather, two great uncles, father, one uncle, three brothers, three cousins and one sister-in-law). You're talking point has gotten so invasive that I've taken to keeping a copy of my DD-214 in my pocket just to prove assholes like you wrong in public.

The military is as diverse as the population that it recruits from. I know that a certain segment of Drew's Friends can't stand hearing that, but it's as true as Orange Mussolini's brain is mash.

Cause you might be skipping a few steps.

Also, "the rest of the country" actually voted for the sane adult. Not the shrieking void.

So ... Secretary, maybe you should try asking the rest of the country how to fix this shiat, instead of assuming all of us are as stupid as your boss.

I'm a life member of the VFW for two reasons.  They typically do good work in an apolitical way, and it gives me this nice ID card that allows me to be a sanctimonious dick to all the right wing 'tards insisting I hate the troops.
