McDonnell Gets to Santorum’s Left, Also Obama’s


Virginia governor Bob McDonnell (R.) criticized Rick Santorum for making remarks in favor of the restrictions on the combat role of women in the military. “I like Rick Santorum a lot, I just disagree with any inference he might have made that somehow women are incapable of serving in the front lines and serving in combat positions. . . .” If McDonnell really means this, he shouldn’t just be criticizing Santorum. He ought to be criticizing Obama’s Pentagon, which is loosening the restrictions but still maintains them.
