"andafoul": Your inappropriate comment about Viagra aside, healthcare for retirees and their family members is not "free". Actually, there are monthly fees for retirees only and retirees with family members. When I signed up in 1970 full healthcare on active duty and during retirement was part of the recruiting package. After I retired the decision was made to move retirees and their families out of base hospitals and send us to civilian doctors and facilities. To pay for this change in service, retirees are charged a fee. I don't mind paying the fees, but try to remember that retirees earned healthcare benefits by serving their country.

Mr. Reagan, you are just plain wrong. It was not GW's election to win or lose. Where were all the top Republican leaders other than GW? I didn't hear of or see any of them on the stump supporting Romney. And to publicly criticize GW a la Obama (aka "It's #43's fault") is just stupid. I think GW chose to stay away because Obama has used him as a lightning rod for all his (Obama's) failures and perhaps GW saw that he would bring all of that negativity to Romney's campaign. He is a private citizen now and very involved with the Wounded Warriors. Why aren't you supporting that in your column instead of running him down? The next Olympic sport: Blame George W. Bush for everything that you think is wrong in the universe.

Multiple insider reports to the contrary, have you ever heard of military commanders repeating what the commander-in-chief wants them to say? I don't know McRaven so I'm not saying this is what he did, but every general officer since the beginning of time knows his/her tenure is based on presidential pleasure. It was Panetta and Clinton who bribed Obama into approving the raid after several stalls instigated by Jarrett. The duo warned that if he did not approve the mission, they would leak his heel-dragging to the American people and he would lose the election over this one issue. History will bear this out. Wait and see.
