Jonah, as a conservative, I'm offended by the contstant rubbing my nose in liberalism, but what voice do I have? I got one crummy vote and I don't watch FOX news.

You have enough voice to post on TH. Be mad as hell and don't take the liberal bullcrap any more.

What if, during the presidential campaign, Mitt Romney had accused President Obama of wanting to let servicewomen serve in combat? After all, Obama had hinted as much in 2008. What would Obama's response have been?

My hunch is that he would have accused Romney of practicing the "politics of division" or some such and denied it.

In any case, wouldn't an open debate have been better than putting women into combat by fiat? You'd think the folks who are always clamoring for a "national conversation" on this, that and the other thing would prefer to make a sweeping change after, you...
