    I mean he is the commander and chief of the military. Dont you think he should know something about the military before signing any orders to send our troops off to war??? And yes Bush served in the National guards before you liberal asses say anything:eusa_whistle:

    Although I don't think it should be required, I feel a Commander-in-Cheif would be more qualified with even a nominal amount of military experience.

    With all of his experience, he turned out to be one of the worst CiC in US history.

    If you have a problem with someone being President who wasn't in the military, then you are going to have to change the Constitution. Perhaps, you should be making less posts about this and be writing to your Congress person.

    No--I do not believe it should be a mandatory requirement to serve in the military for President. We have had great Presidents in this nation that never did do any military time.

    However, unlike the clown we have in the oval office right now--our prior President's actually recognized who our enemies were.

    There are only three requirements for President...everything else is just the voter's preferences.

    Our founders wanted a civilian to be commander in chief. FDR did a hell of a job in WW2.
