Retired General: Republicans The Worst Things That’s Happened To The US Army and Marine Corps

Retired Army Major General Paul D. Eaton spoke out against the Republican claim of being better for the military than Democrats in an interview with Bill Maher last night. Crooks and Liars has the video along with this portion:

“We’ve got this thing that so many military believe that Republican administrations are good for the military. That is rarely the case. And, we have to get a message through to every soldier, every family member, every friend of soldiers that the Republican party, the Republican dominated Congress has absolutely been the worst thing that’s happened to the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps.”

    That’s an understatement. Honestly, who thought that sending in thousands of people to a messed up country and keeping them there would be good for anyone? Who thought that spending billions on the military without raising taxes would keep the country safe? There’s a reason that those guys are generals. It takes a certain amount of intelligence – about the same amount that you need to realize Bush is doing an awful job.
