Default Obama wants Marines to wear ‘girly’ hats

Geese don't we have other issues that are more important?

"We don't even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women's hats!" one senior Marine source fumed to The Post. "The Marines deserve better. It makes them look ridiculous."
Of course I am sure it is not true since Fox reported it.

So to try to get rid of the Faux News stink, you point to another Murdoch owned resource...

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...

We'll that is where you are wrong. I have no clue who is who in the media because I don't even have a TV. I have internet through my phone service only. However when I did a google search it was quoted with more than one page of news sources. I am sure it is more then your Murdoch or whatever.

And it is not an off the cuff comment by Obama but a plan by Obama. Discuss the article not the messenger.

Obama May Force Marines to Wear Girly Hats - Elspeth Reeve - The Atlantic Wire

According to the New York Post, President Obama's plan to create a "unisex" look for the Corps has officials on the verge of swapping out the Marines' iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so "girly" that they would make the French blush.

resident Obama is ruining the culture of the military by making Marines wear girly hats, the New York Post reports. "Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a 'unisex' look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so 'girly' that they would make the French blush," the Post's Jeane MacIntosh writes. Curiously, if you look at the photo above — the old style is on the left, the new style on the right — it appears it's actually the old hats that have more flair. We have annotated which is more girly to offer some clarity to confused civilians.

I doubt if Obama is in charge of hats. I don't know why we have hats anyway. Helmets yes, Hats? Who cares?

1. I seriously doubt obama gives two farts about hats
2. I fail to see how those hats are remotely 'girly'
3. They really aren't that different from the current hats
4. Someone is making a big stink about nothing at all

The new hats look like ****, probably made in China. Leave the Marine Corp head gear alone.

*******s!

Personally, I would prefer they leave the Marine Corp head gear alone also.

How exactly does the Marine Corps Uniform Board discussing a new hat for the uniform, turn into "Obama wants Marines to wear 'girly' hats."???


The new hats look fine BTW, and neither really look more or less masculine than the other to me.
