Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Obama Administration ‘Destroying This Country’

Posted on | January 3, 2011 | 3 Comments

Our “Full Metal Jacket Reach-Around” (Rule 2) is named in honor of a memorable remark by the Marine drill instructor in the 1987 Kubrick classic. An actual Marine, R. Lee Ermey, was perfectly cast in that role. At a Toys for Tots event last month, Ermey spoke out against the Obama administration:

“The economy really sucks. Now, I hate to point fingers at anybody, but the present administration probably has a lot to do with that. And the way I see it, they’re not going to quit doing it until they bring this country to its knees. So I think we should all rise up, and we should stop this administration from what they’re doing, because they’re destroying this country. They’re driving us into bankruptcy so they can impose socialism on us. That’s exactly what they’re doing and I’m sick and damned tired of it, and I know you are, too.”

Semper Fi, Sarge. John Nolte at Big Hollywood predicts this will result in efforts to blacklist Ermey, who is currently starring in a funny GEICO commercial.

Let’s hope not. And now, for the Best Motivational Speech Evah!
