Just because you were physically tough enough to be a SEAL, and served your country, doesn't mean you can't be a total dickhead. There really isn't any shortage of dickheads in the military, trust me, I certainly ran into plenty of them in 37 years of service.
Respect for a vet's honorable service is not the same thing as a free pass for behaving badly later, and it does not extend to respect for any random stupid idea or opinion that may pop into his or her pointy little head in civic life.
So a SEAL cant be an idiot? Did we forget Jesse Vantura.
I wonder if any of the DUmmies recall that before john kerry the Traitor ran for President, we (veterans and active military) were hated. Suddenly it became a love fest.
If the OP had happened before kerry the Traitor, nobody on DU would have posted a thing about it.
And, of course, they hate Christie because he doesn't take any BS from their side.
