Another chickenhawk puffs up his chest:
North Carolina State Sen. David Rouzer (R), the GOP nominee in the state’s 7th congressional district, levied the charge during a speech at a Tea Party Express rally in Wilmington on Sunday. If Romney is elected, Rouzer said, those perpetrating recent violence in the Middle East are going to “cut it out a little bit [...] because now we have real men in the White House.” An audience member shouted “No girly men!” prompting Rouzer’s approval: “That’s right, no girly men.”
Says the man who hasn't served a day in uniform, and probably would have joined his GOP colleagues in blocking the veterans jobs bill. I'm surprised he didn't drop Reagan's name in there, to remind people of the freeing of hostages in Iran. Who then proceeded to blunder all across the Third World creating little wars that he could lose.
On a separate yet equally disgusting note, his use of that phrase is not only 7th grade playground fodder, it's sexist as hell, too. I served with quite a few females in my years in the Army, and most of them were not only very professional, they could put Rouzer on his ass in a heartbeat, and still have time to clean the slime off their uniform such an encounter would cause.
At one time you were a farmer, David. If you want to puff up your chest about subsidies or tariffs, go right ahead. But when it comes to sending soldiers in harm's way, you need to leave the strut at home.
