Report: Obama Didn’t Want to Take Photos With the US Troops in Iraq …Update: Obama Tells Troops “You Guys Make a Pretty Good Photo Op”


(Voice NZ)

Another revolting disclosure…
A new book by Michael Hastings, The Operators, reveals that Barack Obama did not want to take photos with the US troops in Iraq.
Buzz Feed reported:

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official
who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.

He’s asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He’s asked to sign copies of his book. “He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,” a State Department official tells me.

“Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let’s just say the scales fell from my eyes after I did. These are people over here who’ve been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn’t want to take fu*king pictures with them?”

    So Obama hates the troops. Looking at his record to date, he also hates this country.

  • Black Sabbath

    He really does hate us all, doesn’t he?

  • FurryGuy

    “Cranky Obama”

    Who doesn’t remember a cheesed-off Barry refusing to answer questions during the 2008 campaign, whining about reporters who wouldn’t let him eat his waffles in peace.

  • Remco Kimber

    Well, we don’t want pictures of soldiers, marines, sailors with him either. We despise his character.

    And I don’t want his picture hanging from walls in post offices, federal court houses and so forth any more. Come November my wish will come true.

    From my lips to G_d’s ears,

    My youngest brother is a State Department Official in Baghdad Iraq.

    Obama is scum.

  • StrangernFiction

    What a shocking revelation.

  • Sarge

    Probably afraid they’d urinate on him, too.


  • Jim

    Let’s turn this around – how many in the military would want to have their picture taken with Obama, outside of Arnold, and I don’t mean Hap.

  • bigL

    next time he is in the theatre, and there will be a PR stunt be assured…drop him off in the mine field. He is an expert in everything.
    ( I hate that Colonel tha greets him at the airport in D.c. Always yukking it up with obama. He should be the first to be court-martialled if we ever have a regime change. There is no excuse for that behaviour. Ther is nothing Obama says or does that is funny. )

  • zooomzooom

    Troops = Props to this turd.

  • Screw U Barry

    Fact: A picture really does speak louder than words and our Muslim friend Barry Soetoro has every intention of having a long and profitable life (money, power, comfort) supporting his Muslim interests. Leaving a bunch of evidence in his wake of climbing the ladder of power in world politics isn’t something he looks forward too. Also, I’m sure his future handlers are going to want a clean ‘tool’ which with to send forth to do their bidding – hence, NO gratuitous photo opps please.

    Isn’t America fortunate to have such a patriotic man to lead them?

  • Gus

    Obama is not likable at all. I mean, what’s to like? He’s a poor mans’ Wink Martindale.
    A.k.a a phony with a smile like the grinch.

  • bear

    Hey, there, go easy on the obamster and his (hates everything American) wife. After all, NO self-respecting commie puke would want photos taken with ACTUAL Americans!

    I wouldn’t cross the street to see that jacka$$

    So it’s now just Michelle who’s angry….it’s our fearless leader too?

  • pink tie Republican

    We have gone from burning the Japs out of caves in WW2 to burning our own troops for abusing dead Taliban corpses.

  • Practical Jane

    Anyone remember when the Obama’s were on the trail in 2007/08 and they insisted (Michelle specifically) that service personel (military, police, etc) be kept out of sight? That their presense was somehow offensive to the Obamas?

    They don’t like us…any of us. We Americans have always been just an inconvience for this president. He’s just showing it more often these days.

  • Liz

    I don’t care about the troops behaving badly with the dead enemy NEARLY as much as I am disgusted by Obama taking a whimweeee all over our troops AND our constitution. IMPEACH

  • Granny

    Obama is probably afraid that some of those pictures might contain inconveniently placed fingers.

  • Kate

    Neither Obama like the troops. Big surprise. They’re liberals. Look what Obama is doing to the military now. He’s trying to destroy it just like he did the economy. He is working hard to make the US go down the drain. And he wants yet another term to keep working on it. Who is stupid enough to like or vote for this guy?
