3. Calm down. Obama isn't going to go in pissing the Military off his first few months in office
especially while they're fighting two wars. At least not on every issue. I don't think anyone is having a problem accepting he is the one in charge.

If they did, you would be hearing anonymous quotes undermining some of the things he's done or is doing.
