    What kind of Commander-in-Chief does not allow the troops to come listen?

    Answer: A Liar-in-THief fraud who makes a campaign speech!

    Obama does not respect the soldiers so why should they respect him. . .

    Obama’s Bible/Quran/Tanakh/Etcetera

    “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the
    very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the
    first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and
    did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer”

    “One World”

    Methinks that this POS who masquerades as the US president and his crew know that the armed forces are NOT behind this guy, but that they desperately want the optics of posing this POS in military settings.

    What has me really worried? Some people might actually buy all of the charade that is this guy.

    I’m watching O’s speech now. It is me or does it look like there’s something kind fake about O’s backdrop. Kind of like that it’s on a ‘Green screen’ sorta like what weathermen stand in front of when forecasting the weather.

    Anyway, horrible speech. It’s the same cowardly cutting out that the US did in Vietnam.

    mg4us @1 – “What kind of Commander-in-Chief does not allow the troops to come listen?”

    The kind who is despised by the military he is actively destroying.

    Smiling, applauding soldiers will be photoshopped in later.

    This is insane! He gets to jet set all over the world BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS that he will not allow to stand in front of him. How many times are we going to let this ________ smack us all in the face?

    Unbelievable this man flys AFI all the way to Afghanistan all for photo op and another campaign speech…..

    I believed that it was firm American policy NOT to negotiate with terrorists. Yet, Barry sez we are negotiating with the Taliban re. reconciliation. What gives? At least his audience was polite… oh, wait… what audience?

  • forest

    I think this was a very last minute thing as a result of some bad internal polling and focus grouping.

  • Barry S

    Maybe no “soldiers” (vs Grunts, Jarheads, Squids, AF, Coasties) wanted to come?

  • Practical Jane

    It’s Obama’s hubris.
    Flyover Country is not supposed to be intelligent enough to add 2+2.

  • Peggy R

    Was he saluting that machinery?

    Maybe he actually knows that he’d be accused of using the soldiers in this campaign speech so he didn’t invite them. Alas, it would be amazing if this man had some scruples…

    The President shares a personal and historic moment with the governed.

    How disgusting and embarrassing for the governed.

    Can the governed have a real President again?
    I hope so. — This man is pathetic.

  • just-saying

    So, is Obummer saluting the machinery?
