I understand he might be disgruntled with the Republican Party's performance lately, but it seems ungrateful for him to make these remarks when it was Republican administrations that put him in positions of power and influence so he could make these remarks.

If it was not for Republicans he would just be another retired General, receiving his pension and no one would care who he was or what he thinks.

I think there is a STRONG case to be argued that the GOP of yesterday is but a shadow of the GOP of today. It's funny (to some) to realize that Reagan would probably be labeled a RINO these days by some of the current ranking members of the GOP.
