10. there are certain double-standard games that conservatives always play...

This is one of them: when a Democrat is in the White House, it's always about generating faux outrage over some petty (and quite frequently fake) supposed "slight" that the President makes toward The Troops(tm). It's always about How The President Doesn't Respect His Troops Enough.

When a Republican is the White House, the conversation immediately switches to how we Democrat Proles don't respect The Commander In Chief Enough (tm).

Another fun variation was when Obama headed up the operation to take down bin Laden. If George Bush had ever taken down bin Laden, the GOP fan-boyz would have absolutely wet their pants in adoration of His Manly Commander In Chief-Ness. But since it was a Democrat who was in charge the conversation instantly had to become about How The Effete Dem President Takes All The Credit From The Brave Troops(tm).

So, you see how this works. It has all the subtlety of grade-schooler word games on the playground.
