THE RULES ARE THEIRS TO BREAK

"The RNC convention week is boasting that it has 144 active duty military delegates at the convention. Meanwhile, according to DOD Directive 1344.10 this is a violation of the code of military conduct.� It explicitly says:

A member on active duty shall not participate in partisan political management, campaigns, or conventions (unless attending a convention as a spectator when not in uniform)." --MSNBC

Does anybody in Bush's campaign bother to check this stuff out? Or is this another non-issue. It's a non-issue when the campaign to re-elect the President subverts Acts of Congress and disregards military policy. What would happen if anybody from the left did this?

Who was it that wanted things both ways?

Comments:
Perhaps these are active duty reserve soldiers...
 
Perhaps, and I guess that would be a reasonable exemption.
