    And of course Boehner & McConnell, along with the usual rinos, will all bend over backwards to ensure Obama gets just what he wants!

    Navy? Plausible.

    This is disgraceful and an insult to every serviceman who ever served in our military.

    Being "politically correct" is NOT a qualification for appointment to a government job position,
    especially one of defending our country.

    This country is headed in the wrong direction with this appointment.

    You're right, it isn't, but serving as acting under secretary of the Army, serving as chief of staff to Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, and serving as under secretary of the Air Force and deputy undersecretary of the Navy are all job qualifications. That's what this guy did prior to his recent promotion.

    Are those not job qualifications?

    Holding a job is not a qualification for a job. What has this guy done that qualifies him for any of those Defense Department jobs?

    We all know he's moving up simply because he's gay, and it's politically awesome for Obama to support the gay community right now.

    There's only one job I know of where being gay is a qualifying factor.

    I've known some other people who have trouble keeping a job.

    So having a resume full of similar work experience does not qualify as relevant work experience?

    Have you ever had a job in your entire life? Nobody who has been in the workforce could possibly say something that ignorant.

    Just goes to show how ignorant you are of those who get jobs based on things entirely outside of what should be a qualification......like affirmative action, and liberal ideology.

    The problem is that this guy is being picked for that job because he's gay, not because of his work experience.
    That makes his work experience irrelevant.

    obama is just throwing this gay crap right into the faces of our military...past, present and future. He hates the military and this is just one more way he can show it.

    They are job qualifications. The question is was he given the job because he was the best qualified or because he is gay?

    Oh, I'm well aware that affirmative action exists. However, that doesn't mean that every single black person or gay person with a job was given it just because they're black or gay. If you have any actual evidence that this guy was given this job because he was gay, please present it. On the other hand, I've presented his resume that shows he was given this job because he's extremely qualified for it.

    See above.

    I'd challenge him to get a Gay Chief of Staff, no pun intended.
