Obama: Commander in chief must support gay troops

By JULIE PACE - Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama sharply rebuked his Republican rivals, saying anyone who wants to be commander in chief must support the entire U.S. military, including gay service members.

A combative Obama on Saturday criticized Republican presidential candidates for staying silent when the crowd at a recent debate booed a gay soldier who asked a question of the contenders via videotape.

'You want to be commander in chief? You can start by standing up for the men and women who wear the uniform of the United States, even when it's not politically convenient,' Obama said during remarks at the annual dinner of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay rights organization.
