So, the leader of the free world believes Americans should look at homosexual relationships as admirable. And Obama failed to explain how a soldier would know another soldier's sexual orientation on a battlefield with bullets flying and bombs exploding.
But then, President Obama is rarely asked to explain himself, now is he?
