OK obama had nothing to do with this. The Marines are looking for a new cover for female soldiers as the current manufacturer is out of business.

Of course I am sure it is not true since Fox reported it.

I agree with your sentiment, but we have to remember something important about Marines and their uniforms.

A Marine presented with no other choice would be expected to step between us and a crazed terrorist with a gun while wearing his dress uniform. He probably deserves that it should be a fine one.

Instead lets scrap all those long, black limousines that we always see federal blowhards being paraded about in, and make them ride in a gay looking sub-compact.

Anybody else notice when articles pop up like this in that they present only one side of the story.
It talks about the marines and a potential change to the head dress for marines, but nowhere do you get any significance to the push.
Obama himself is directly named, but absolutely nothing presents itself to demonstrate that Obama himself had anything to do with the idea.

Is it just an off-hand comment? A formal order with an established dead-line?
The article gives absolutely nothing to delineate from the two possibilities...

They go for quotes to people opposing the plan, but not one iota of a comment from anybody who is supposed to be supporting the plan.
Typical Murdoch news reporting...
Why the **** don't you provide one then?

The Marine Corps also has been asked by the DoD to find a unisex option for a dress and service cover, Marines said.

The point is on the crappy reporting. And as MrLiberty pointed out above, the claim that this is all Obama's push is false.
The articles explicitly tried to blame Obama for this. The articles were crap.

Thanks for posting this.


From the article:
The manufacturer of the women’s “bucket cover” – which has a distinctly different shape than the men’s cover – is going out of business and will not continue to make the cap, according to the Marine Corps.
The fact that this is what actually got the ball rolling on this is very bizarre to me.
Why couldn't another company simply pick up the design? Are there copyrights involved which might prevent that?
(Those are rhetorical questions that I should admittedly google for the answers. Just musings cause I find that description from the article bizarre...)
