This guy has completely flipped? All his policies and positions seem to be counter to what the country needs and what he was a part of under the Bush admin.

Worst part is, I distinctly remember an interview he had prior to the election with a British news outlet in which he was asked if he would stay on if the next administration asked him to. Without adamantly said no. What do you suppose changed his mind so easily?

Must like the taste of Barry's manhood.

Yeah, I heard this morning he was all for the Missile shield when he was under Pres. Bush.



Though ANY Sec. Def. speaks for the President so it's not Gates that flipped..........It's Obama.

I think a man of principle would resign if he didn't believe in the policies he's made to enforce.

If he dosent compromise with Obama he will be fired and be replaced with someone worse. Hes looking out for his own skin and the troops.

He hasn't changed a bit. He's making the same sort of poor decisions he made when he still worked for Bush. It's very telling that Obama chose to keep him on when he took over the white house. That's nearly unheard of, and it shows just how counter to Republican ideals Gates is.

Amen to that. A man of principle would also have declined to serve under Obama when offered the position.

I'm wondering the same thing about Gen James Jones, former USMC Commandant, EUCOM Combatant Commander, and now Obama's National Security Advisor.

Gates sucked when Bush picked him and he sucks ever worse under 0bama. I have neither respect nor regard for the man and would enjoy telling him that to his face.
