If you find the previous BSG thread, you can examine the half-dozen examples I cited to Bronn Stone detailing that President Roslin, and by implication the civilian government and the Quorum, is the ultimate authority over all matters, military or otherwise. Roslin promotes Adama to admiral, Roslin authorizes the use of a biological weapon, Baltar orders Adama to set course for New Caprica...all these are military decisions, or involve movement of the fleet, and civilian authorities made 'em. That's fact. You don't have a leg to stand on in this debate.
Your arguments still suck, just like they did back then.
1) Roslin promotes Adama to admiral: This was basically her ensuring a Caine situation didn't come up again. Adama can't really promote himself and probably never even thought of the idea anyway.
2) Roslin authorizes the use of a biological weapon: Adama didn't want to use them in the first place. He put the decision on Roslin to keep himself from having to make it.
3) Baltar orders Adama to set course for New Caprica: Not a military matter. Baltar decided where the civlians were gonna live, Adama's job is to ensure their safety.
With the jump drive thing, Roslin has decided they are looking for a new planet to settle. Adama's job is to ensure the safety while they do that. Better jump drives is part of this job.
All of this, however, is irrelevant to whatever point you were trying to make before you got all crazy about this point again for no reason.
