Republican Congressman: Generals Who Disagree With Obama Should Resign
Colorado Congressman Doug Lamborn says Generals who don’t like the way President Obama is conducting the war should resign.
At a liberty group meeting this week, Lamborn was asked about supporting the military and troops “despite the fact that there is no leadership from the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House.”
Lamborn said, “Let me reassure you on this. A lot of us are talking to the generals behind the scenes, saying, ‘Hey, if you disagree with the policy that the White House has given you, let’s have a resignation. You know, let’s have a public resignation, and state your protest, and go out in a blaze of glory.’”
Lamborn’s opponent, Irv Halter (who happens to be a retired Air Force major general), quickly issued a statement condemning Lamborn for “encouraging our military leaders to resign when they have a disagreement over policy.” He said, “Someone who serves on the House Armed Services Committee should know better.”[su_csky_ad]
