There is a stark difference between Obama and Bush when it comes to our military men and women. One has genuine feelings for them, the other considers them nothing more then a photo-op. Bush would meet with the fallen soldiers families in private with no cameras.
After seeing Obama’s disgraceful act of calling the press pool to come with him so they could photograph him while dead American soldiers were coming home, I recalled the video of Bush awarding the medal.
Here Bush sheds tears presenting the medal of honor to Navy Seal Michael Monsoor’s parents. Michael gave the greatest sacrifice by throwing himself on top of a grenade to save two men.
The holidays are approaching. President Bush would travel and spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with our troops. Will Obama? Its hard to say. I assume he will. He has to give a show pretending he cares about them.We know the truth though as do I’m sure most of the troops.
Obama doesn’t want to send in help to Afghanistan even though they are begging for it while they watch their fellow soldiers being slaughtered. Obama doesn’t want us to win the war. I think that is pretty clear by now.
Obama changes the rules of engagement so the enemy has a chance to get away only to come back another day and kill our men.
Obama wants to cut the spending for them. Millions headed for military was diverted for our elected officials pet projects. Maybe the better word would be they stole money from out men and women in uniform for themselves.
Obama disdains our military might. As do most Democrats. They tear it down and the republicans have to build it back up. Listen to his speeches when traveling all over the world. We are bullies. We need military to be bullies.
We all know about Obama’s fake townhall meetings being filled with only supporters with staged questions from pretend patients and such. Will Obama be able to gather enough volunteer members of our military for a staged greeting? Note to Obama, have staff hand out different style cameras to the volunteer troops. Remember the one fiasco? They all had the same cameras to take pretend shots of you. Try and make it just a tad more realistic this time.
My how things have changed
I find it odd the majority of the people have the same beliefs as a Republican but the Democrats do so well getting elected. People may say its the independents that do it. I don’t believe in independents. You either believe one way or the other. True the Republicans haven’t been acting like Republicans in a while.
The Democrats need five things to win.
1. Have the media and papers on your side so they only report half truths about what you say or do. When a Democrat gets in trouble, make sure their party isn’t mention. If need be, mention party affiliation near the bottom of the story. Call the Republicans racists and pretend to be outraged at some comment they made but don’t bring up the same or worse deeds the Democrats have done.
2. Make the people think they are for the little guy. But look at their actions and history. They were against civil rights. Say things like we wont raise your taxes but do it anyway. Hell, they make up silly excuses just to do it. The sugar tax comes to mind. No, what a Democrat does is keep you down. They need you to fail so you come crawling to them for help hoping for a handout. Now they got ya.
3. Blame everything they did on the Republicans very loudly and often. You tell a lie long enough, it becomes fact. Bank failures were all on the Dems AND Obama’s head but who do the people blame? The Bush administration who tried a few times to reign in Freddy and Fanny but to no avail because the Democrats lied that there was no problem with the banks.
4. ACORN. This is a must. ACORN is supposed to be bi-partisan but we all know that isn’t true. When is the last time you saw ACORN campaigning for a Republican? ACORN can be helpful in getting Mickey Mouse and Pluto to register to vote. They are also miracle workers because they are able to bring the dead back to life long enough to vote. Intimidation is also a helpful tool.
5. Suppress the military vote just like Virgina is doing. You know, do things like send out ballets to the service people the day BEFORE the election. The Democrats know the people in the military are mostly Conservative so their vote must be squashed. So what if they are the reason we have a voting process. After all, these are Democrats. They only care about themselves.
So in a nutshell, there you have it. Hopefully ACORN will be taken out of the picture soon and maybe the playing field will be slightly more even.
My next lesson…how to make a mayo sandwich.
Second hand smoke blown into a face.
Putting a bug on a leg.
Put a bag over a mans head and have him pretend to be dead.
Have some power tools sitting out in the open. Pick one up and turn it on.
Saying if they don’t talk they will kill their family.
Putting a few drops of water on a mans face.
This is what the left is having a fit about. Its torture! No. what is is though is laughable and actually worked!
I would love to see how the left would get info out of a terrorist. I have yet to see any of their ideas. Their to busy criticizing how its being done.
What the left does love though is showing the enemy how we get info so when they are captured, they will know we are bluffing and no harm will come to them if they refuse to talk. I’m sure our enemies are having a big laugh at us about now. If the left had their way they would tell them troop movements so they would have time to get away and none of them could get hurt.
If it were me and I had a man who just killed 3,000 people sitting in front of me, I would pull out his fingernails. I would break his kneecaps. I would do what it took to save more lives. It would be a two-fer. Getting info and a little payback all at once.
I’m surprised Obama is letting the military use real bullets in the war. Maybe if the plan he now has to lose the war in Afghanistan doesn’t work, he will pass out squirt guns to our troops. (with warm water. Cold water would be a shock) After all, we are also using tanks and planes. The enemy has neither. It doesn’t seem right. We need to make it more fair so that there isn’t so many of the enemy killed at once.
I think every soldier should only be allowed to kill 3 enemy combatants a week. Agreed? Or is that to many?
Seriously, if we are attacked again, I put ALL the blame on the lefties, Democrats and King Obama. The blood will be on your hands.
This man says for the American people not to worry. The United States Military WILL stand by, protect the constitution and join the citizens against tyranny. After seeing reactions from soldiers when Obama comes into a room to speak to them, I can see they don’t much care for the Kenyan.
As he says, the people in the armed forces are our brothers, our neighbors, our friends. Could anyone imagine them turning onto their own people? I can’t see it. American people are nothing like China, Russia, or any other country. We are the most giving of all.
First they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
And there was no one left to speak out for me.
Newsmax Is it coming? Possibly the end of the United States as we know it?
They are using the excuse of “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.” Look at what is happening in CA. The state is running out of money and are talking about using I.O.U.’s instead of welfare checks which the banks say they will refuse to honor. Obama is trying to put the country in so much debt it will take years to climb our way out of it.
The defense department is planning on stationing 20,000 combat troops on American soil nation wide to help state and local officials deal with “emergencies.” however, “They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control.” There are even claims by a former congressman warns of coming martial law and says we already have what is being called detention camps here in the US.
General Tommy Franks back in 2003 said “if the U.S. is attacked with a weapon of mass destruction, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.”
Would our own military shoot or round up their own brothers and haul them to detention camps or would most turn against their commanders and refuse to follow orders.
bill H.R. 645: To direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers on military bases.
SEC. 2. ESTABLISHMENT OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY CENTERS.
(a) In General- In accordance with the requirements of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall establish not fewer than 6 national emergency centers on military installations.
(b) Purpose of National Emergency Centers- The purpose of a national emergency center shall be to use existing infrastructure–
(1) to provide temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster;
(2) to provide centralized locations for the purposes of training and ensuring the coordination of Federal, State, and local first responders;
(3) to provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations; and
(4) to meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security
What other appropriate needs? Why is this the job of Homeland Security when we have FEMA? Homeland security are armed personal.
Bill Ayers has a dream. His dream is Reeducation camps. This is the kind of people Obama admires. Obama himself had plans for a camp geared towards the younger people. Telling them “Don’t go into corporate America,” Michelle has exhorted youth. “Work for the community. Be social workers.” Shun the “money culture”
“If you commit to serving your community,” he pledged in his Denver acceptance speech, “we will make sure you can afford a college education.” So, go through government to go to college, and then go back into government.
Many of today’s youth find the pitch attractive. “I may spend the rest of my life trying to create social movement,” said Brian Coovert of the Cincinnati chapter. “There is always going to be work to do. Until we have a perfect country, I’ll have a job.” I have been to plenty of other countries while in the military and it always felt good to “be home” There is no country like the United States. So Brian, go to Russia or Cuba. You would be welcomed there.
Not all the recruits appreciate the PC indoctrination. “It was too touchy-feely,” said Nelly Nieblas, 29, of the 2005 LosAngeles class. “It’s a lot of talk about race, a lot of talk about sexism, a lot of talk about homophobia, talk about -isms and phobias.”
The pieces are coming together. Our country is being high-jacked and not even one person in Washington seems to care.
Think the troops will like Obama as much as they love President Bush?
God bless President Bush and thank you.
Most news media report Obama greeting our troops in Hawaii but yet again fail to report it all. Surprise surprise. The news during Obama’s regime is going to be pretty much one sided it seems. I expect the media to turn on him but it will take time.
President-elect Obama stopped by the Marine Corps base in Hawaii Kaneche Bay where servicemen and -women were eating Christmas dinner in Kailua Thursday evening.
“Just wanted to say hi, hey guys,” Obama said as he walked into the Anderson dining hall which was decked out in Christmas decorations.
The diners represented seven military units — Marine and Navy — some of whom were joined by their families for Christmas dinner.
As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up. More at Political Punch
Comparing Obama with the troops with Bush and I can see a difference. Obama is going to have to earn their respect and trust.
We have seen how some countries have used the military against their own people. What I wonder when I see this is, what goes through the soldiers mind when they shoot their own people? What do the parents of these soldiers think about their children? Are they scared of their children now? Are they proud of their children? How can a soldier in good conscious kill their own countrymen?
The US the army has deployed a hard core battle tested combat unit for the first time right here in the US. Their purpose is in the event of a terrorist attack or natural disaster. however, “They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control.” There are even claims by a former congressman we already have what is being called detention camps here in the US.
We have American combat troops stationed on American soil, We have Obama wanting a civilian national security force, and we have detention camps. What if our American soldiers are ordered to shoot or put American citizens in these camps? Would they follow orders? what if they refused to follow orders?
The military’s job is to protect the US. Not use them for civil unrest or even natural disasters. We have the National Guard for that.
When I was in the Navy and a huge storm ripped through the town we were ported in we volunteered to help with the clean up. There were no orders given. We didn’t go out in the town armed.
What is happening now is wrong on so many levels.
Dr. Orly says she can represent military personal and ex-military refusing to take orders from a illegitimate president.
Again, I’m glad I’m no longer in the military. It would make me ill having “That One” as my commander in chief knowing he isn’t qualified.
As Obama’s spokesman Valerie Jarret says, Obama is prepared to take POWER and RULE from day one. I guess she didnt get the memo that presidents don’t rule. Their not kings. Unless…she DID get the memo…
Obama used race in the election for president. He and his supporters were the only ones using race. I predict he will continually use race throughout his 4yrs or less of the presidency. Its one of the ways to keep the peoples mouth shut. He used intimidation. People did what he told them to do. “get in their face” Some went further then that though. They became physical. Police arrest a man for wearing a McCain T-shirt. Armed Black Panthers standing outside polling offices.
The 2nd way is to stifle free speech is by passing the so called patriot act. The effect will be the end of talk radio. Its a fact liberal talk radio cannot make a profit and if they are to get equal time, advertising dollars will disappear forcing talk radio into the abyss. Reports say it wont stop at the radio. They may also go after the Internet.They don’t need to go after the MSN as long as they keep doing what they do. Keep most Americans in the dark from the truth.
The 3rd way, and we have already seen this and continue to see this in action. The control of the media. It had started years ago and have steadily gotten worse. This election year we have seen the end of actual news reporting and were bombarded with propaganda, lies, cover ups, and the editorializing of the news.
Obama will try and outlaw guns. If he doesn’t outright ban them he will make it so it will be very hard for a law abiding citizen to purchase a gun.
He will go ahead with embryo research even though the scientists have been finding cures without the use of the embryo.
Obama will push for abortions into the 9th month and infanticide because for some unexplained reasons, he seems to detest unborn babies. Isn’t it funny. “In order to be pro choice, you have to be born first”
Obama has been able to get away with lies all through the campaign. Now of course some is starting to come out. The media has known all about the lies but chose to keep quiet until their comrade was elected.
Obama as committed many crimes but will be untouched because of the race card. Logan act twice, forging selective service papers, money being exchanged between Obama and the Kenya government campaigning for a murderer in Kenya, campaign fraud, payoffs while in the senate. He has played the race card to the hilt to protect himself.
The way things have been going, the government will be talking over most of the businesses using the excuse of bailouts.
Obama on the night he bought the election himself said there may not be tax cuts. I wonder what his believer’s thought when he said they will need to sacrifice? Wasn’t he going to pay everyones mortgage and heat? Since when does a democrat cut taxes anyway? Obama mentioned he may not be able to fix the economy. It may take a 2nd term. Hell, he is one of them that turned the economy into what it is today! Of course he can’t fix it. If you notice who he is considering for positions in his cabinet, you can see it wont happen also.
I have a friend at work. He is from Lithuania who became a American citizen a few years ago. He and the people from his country fear Obama. They know a communist when they see one. I told my friend, not all of us Americans are blind and dumb. We know what Obama really is.
The media as of yet fail to report about this civilian army Obama mentioned on the campaign trail. Some say oh its nothing but a peace corps. Well, for one, the peace corps isnt armed and they don’t serve here. I say its the equivalent of Hitlers brownshirts. He has a ready made army at his disposal right now. ACORN and the black panthers just to name two.
What are we to make of this?
Europe right now is all giddy we have elected a socialist/communist. What they don’t realize is that it also means if they get into trouble like say with Russia, who is becoming more and more erratic, Obama probably will talk tough but will let it what ever happens, happen. No more America coming to anyones rescue. We to, could end up losing our identity just as Europe has began to by giving into the Muslims in the name of political correctness.
We will be attacked again and if Obama goes through with his plans of slicing the military by 25%, slowing down the developments of future weapons, dismantle our nuclear capabilities, we are just going to be sitting ducks and so will the rest of the world.
He may have to reinstate the draft. because I can’t see our service men and women wanting to serve Obama. He has shown what he thinks of our men and women by voting against funding for them and playing games with their lives by trying to stall troop withdrawals. I for one am glad I’m no longer in the military. It would make me physically ill knowing I had a commie as my commander in chief.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. If the republicans go back to being Republicans, they will clean up in 4 yrs. Stop trying to be a Democrat. One of the reasons McCain lost was because a lot of Republicans refused to vote because of McCain.
I think this quote says it best. “Europe is in love with the US again and the Middle East is Laughing at the US”
