Barack Obama: “Those Soldiers or Airmen or Marines or Sailors Are Fighting on MY Behalf” (Video)

They’re fighting for Barack.
Via Weasel Zippers:

Human Events has more on Obama’s heartfelt statement:

“…When I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

    Right. That’s it.

    The sound I hear is him losing the black vote…and more of the Catholic vote. I guess he figures he’s got the fraud machinery in place so it won’t matter. Black folks certainly aren’t down for the man on man marriage!

    What first popped into my mind after reading this, was a History Channel show on the rise of Hitler, which noted that Hitler had the military swear an oath to him personally, as opposed to Germany as had been done in the past.

  • Patty

  • Winston Wolfe

    Narcissistic prick.

  • John J Czerwinski

    Before the start of WWII Hitler had all of Germany’s armed forces called into mass formations at which time every one took an oath of allegiance to Hitler that superceded their previous oath to the nation. As a youngster I remember being taught that American servicemen took an oath to preserve the Constitution, not to a single individual and this oath to the rule of law rather than the rule of the individual was what made American’s special. When I took the oath as a 2nd Lt of Engineers in 1968 I was proud because I knew what it meant. Obama took the same oath and he continues to demonstrate that he has no clue. Not on his behalf, rather on behalf of the Constitution.

    “Those Soldiers or Airmen or Marines or Sailors Are Fighting on my orders” as the commander of chief.

    It should have been but that would make him responsible and able to pull them out tomorrow on his orders as CiC not weak under some hand tie agreement that the military is under orders of the agreement not CiC.

  • Not Likely

    He was talking about his own opinion. Kind of hard to talk about your own opinion without using the word “my” or “I.”


  • BurmaShave

    It’s Bush’s fault.

    Bush would have said: “Those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors are fighting on OUR behalf.”

    Obama certainly would not want to be like Bush.

    Fortunately, at least TOTUS avoided the treacherous term “corpsmen.”

    P.S. by “fighting on my behalf…” might he mean that the military makes him look good since he can’t do it himself?

    Because it never gets old:

    UNDERGROUND by Barack Obama

    Under water grottos, caverns
    Filled with apes
    That eat figs.
    Stepping on the figs
    That the apes
    Eat, they crunch.
    The apes howl, bare
    Their fangs, dance,
    Tumble in the
    Rushing water,
    Musty, wet pelts
    Glistening in the blue.

  • kathteach

    Whenever Obama has to talk off the teleprompter – he says things like this which reveal his truly scary narcissistic schema. He has no filters to let him know how his words will be received.

    And I agree so much with ##10 :

    Offensive, yes. Clueless, completely.

    But also, it seems Obama just took personal responsibility for all current military operations. They are not exercises of national security but rather his own personal conquests. Not bad for a guy who was given the Nobel Peace Prize for what he was going to do.

  • UpChuck.Liberals

    If it wasn’t for arrogance, Barry would have absolutely nothing going for him. But #25 how do you explain “I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained,” Which is a direct quote. Or do you mean that our Apologist in Chief should have said ‘fighting on OUR behalf’. But we and by we I’m including the lefties that refuse to believe that they’re totally in the tank for our Loser in Chief is just to much of a narcissist to think of anybody but himself. Maybe Barry’s just too tired flying around on our dime campaigning so he misspoke, maybe he should go play a few rounds of golf.

  • jainphx

    Oh man I can’t take this A%%hole any longer, where does he get the balls to say that. If I was still in, I would have to weigh heavily whether I wanted to stay in. Hitler did and said the same things, just wow.

  • No wonder the U.S. military detests Hussein, they enlisted to fight for the greatest nation on earth and they find themselves fighting for an Indonesian usurper who had a transvestite nanny in his homeland and thinks gays belong in combat although he has always shirked the military himself.

    Obama really thinks he is the Commander-in-Chief

    The Military knows him as the liar-in-Thief

    Remember when Obama wanted to deny soldiers their pay while the budget fights were ongoing (but not the welfare folks or ACORN). .the soldiers won’t forget

    They won’t forget their fallen comrades as Obama funds and support the Taliban.

    They won’t forget how Obama goes around apologizing for America or leaves a stealth drone for the Iranians

    They swore an oath to defend the Constitution.. . AND THEY WILL!

    When the $#!t hits the fan, Barry the narcissistic fraud, thief, race-baiter and liar better high tail out. . . otherwise they may come to try him for treason!

  • Rhoda R

    Anyone want to open book on what percentage of overseas military votes get “lost”?

  • Limousine Barry

    When I think about members of my own staff who are incredibly committed to same-sex relationships I think about Barney Frank and the need for gay marriage.

    When I think about those gay soldiers who are out fighting for me or voting for me it is important to affirm same sex marriage. Sure, some soldiers are not gay – but they probably don’t vote for me… er, I can see the teleprompter. Please adjust it. Thank you

    Now that “don’t ask don’t tell” is gone we can have same-sex marriages in the military. It will boost spirits, work-off tensions and make my men more cohesive. Further, I can start counting the military votes because I will have a loyal voting base.

    Let me be clear, I like surfing Barney’s butt as much as he likes screwing mine so I must affirm same sex marriages. In fact, I am thinking of divorcing Michelle and marring Barney. There will be no more nagging and policy will be so much better.

    My limousine is running and Barney Frank is in the back. We are off to a fund raiser and Barney’s butt will be in the air. Make a donation for gay marriage. Thank you and good day.

  • blackirishblonde

    This from the same President who said “I am generally proud of OUR military”~~~He is disgusting!!

  • Valerie

    You have to consider the context.

    For twenty years, he sat in church, listening to a preacher who told his flock over and over again that the military existed to protect white people, not blacks.

    He is talking to his black constituency here, telling them that the military is protecting him (and by extension, them, too.).

    He has no idea what America stands for.

  • Nana

    please everyone, vote this narsistic out of White House in November!

  • Valerie #55

    re He has no idea what America stands for

    That is because Hussein bin Obama does not consider himself an American.

    ‘The excerpt focuses on Obama’s brief time in New York after his graduation from Columbia University. The son of a Kenyan father and an American expatriate mother, Obama emerges as a man questioning whether he viewed himself, or wanted to be viewed by others, as an American. Not in a citizenship sense — Obama was born in the United States and that was that — but in the sense of how he saw the world and wanted to be seen by it.

    Obama had a lot of Pakistani friends; Maraniss writes that if Obama and his girlfriend socialized as a couple, “it was almost always with the Pakistanis.” Obama appeared to identify with his friends as fellow non-Americans. “For years when Barack was around them, he seemed to share their attitudes as sophisticated outsiders who looked at politics from an international perspective,” Maraniss writes. “He was one of them, in that sense.”

    But Obama was ambitious. Appalled by the “dirty deeds” of “Reagan and his minions” (as he wrote in “Dreams from My Father”), Obama became increasingly interested in, as Maraniss writes, “gaining power in order to change things.” He couldn’t do that as an international guy hanging around with his Pakistani friends; he needed to become an American.

    So he did. One of those Pakistani friends, Beenu Mahmood, saw a major change in Obama. Mahmood calls Obama “the most deliberate person I ever met in terms of constructing his own identity,” according to Maraniss. The time after college, Mahmood says, “was an important period for him, first the shift from not international but American, number one, and then not white, but black.”

    Mahmood, Maraniss writes, “could see Obama slowly but carefully distancing himself as a necessary step in establishing his political identity as an American.”‘

    In new biography, Obama asks: Am I an American?

    He didn’t view himself as American, had few or no American friends and thought the great American President Reagan was quote dirty, but he wanted power over America so Hussein set out to make Americans think he was an American. And that is why he knows little or nothing about America, to him this is just another nation that needs re-making and transformed.

    You guys sound so ignorant. He was speaking on his own behalf and talking about his own opinions. They are fighting on his behalf just as they fight for everyone. Try coming up with some real debate about the issue rather than pointing out something that is inconsequential.

    This same-sex-marriage and his idiotic comments are all a distraction for the whopping OBAMA got at the polls Tuesday in WI, WV and NC. . .

    When significant percentage of your own party votes against you and your union thugs (WI), when 20+% of your party votes against you when no one else on the ticket (NC), when a convicted felon in jail gets more than 40% of your party’s votes (WV). . and when you can’t fill a hall (OHIO) on the day you launch your candidacy. . .with donations down. . all I can say is:

    Deez are da facts. . . Da Radical incompetent Obama in Deep Trouble. . deep

    Add to it all the phoney WARs he stirs up and agitates. . .
    War on Women
    War on Free Birth Control (what a Fluke -puke)
    War on Immigration
    War on the States (Suing Arizona)
    War on Catholic Church
    War on Christians
    War on oil companies
    War on Fishing Industry
    War on California Farmers (smelt)
    War on traditional family values
    War on Success
    Racial War (black youth flash mobs, NBPP, his composite girl friend noting Blacks are Angry)

    That is why OBAMA chose Socialist motto

    OBAMA the Agitator-and-Thief. . . a divider and wimp

    November 2012 – Let”s HOPE there’s CHANGE

  • GldnGrl

    Obama loves himself so much, that he’d actually like to marry himself one day. So the same sex issue has to be brought up first. It will somehow find it’s way into the school system and healthcare reform, and who knows, it’ll also have a czar for it.

  • Indiana

    We keep drawing lines in the sand….and Obama keeps crossing them. Until we stand up and say “you’ve gone too far” he’ll keep pushing. Every dictatorial step forward he takes, makes us look weaker and weaker. No wonder the world thinks we’re no longer significant, we keep lying down and rolling over for this POS in the White House.

    @ #61 Jimmy Jim

    Commenter #65 mg4us just shut you up. Now please, leave us grown-ups alone to actually deal with this mess your POTUS helped magnify a thousand times (or should I say trillions of dollars of time?).

    You could learn alot from this site. The fact you haven’t says more about you than it does about GP. You ASSUME the LUITPOS means he’s referring to himself personally in the most positive sense, but you have absolutely no clue. Look up the word, narcissistic, and then get back to us. Better still, come back after you’ve at least got your high school equivalence.

    @ #67 Indiana commented-“No wonder the world thinks we’re no longer significant, we keep lying down and rolling over for this POS in the White House.”
