Axelrod: Obama Supports Military Because He Met Those Coffins When They Came Home (Video)

David Axelrod told Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday that Barack Obama supports the military because he met the coffins at the airport.

“I’m not in the White House. I’m not privy to all the discussions, but I can tell you this… This president is 100% committed to the people he sent overseas personally to represent this country. He’s the one who met those coffins when they came home.”

    “Supporting the military” = giving them what they need so that as few of them as possible returns in a coffin

    Obama’s only “supports” them after failing them

  • ebay one kanobe


    Dr. Charles Stanley’s “IN TOUCH” today (Sun 11-4) is very good…speaks about our conscious, the mess we’re in, in this country…watch to the very end.

    He also filled those coffins.

    He also told a big lie in front of those coffins and used them as a political prop.

    Hey A, Hilliary was there also! Both looked like deer looking at the headlights. They’re correct, this deal will not go away. Win or lose this election, impeach!

  • Ragspierre

    The military supports Obama…just like they see how he’s supporting them.

    Not. At. All.

  • Patricia

    Yeah, he loves the military … as long as they’re in a coffin. The “corpse” men.

  • axlehead

    The ones where he tweeted about buying his clothes while the coffins were passing by? Or the other time he tweeted about Romney?

  • Linda


  • dw dude

    if he had protected those men, he wouldn’t have any coffins to greet. we cannot let him be president for four more years, the country will break up.

  • Indiana

    Here’s a question for Axelrod: “How long have you known Barack Obama to be a murderer, and how do you sleep at night?”

  • just this axelrod liar is LEADER of the democratic party.

  • Art Ewing

    How does this P.O.S sleep at nite after being complicit in the murder of four people.

  • American Woman

    Seriously, Axelrod, you are a disgusting mistake for a human being.

    Obama is responsible for the bodies that came home in those coffins. He is the reason our men died in Libya. You can’t rewrite the truth and replace it with Progressive lies, even with the media in your pocket.

    I spit on you and your candidate.

  • Linda



  • thescribbler

    None of them could even look the parents of those dead in the eyes. Blood on ALL of their hands and if this doesn’t land Obama behind bars, nothing will. The main stream media are starting to jump ship already, the writing is on the wall…..

  • The real Wow

    Yep, he supports the military because those coffins because make a cool photo op, just like the military does.! I’ve never loathed anyone, but am coming very close.

  • Miss Peach

    Which was his job…Axelgrease. Can you imagine the uproar there would have been had Obama not been there to greet the coffins on our deceased heroes ? He was there because he had to be there and it was a good photo-op for him.

  • Sasja

    Evil has no conscience. That is why these devils are able to sleep at night.

  • Conservative Cookie

    If he (the President) was so committed to the people “he sent overseas to represent this country” then why was the Ambassador denied the security needed? Why was the security so inadequate and undertrained? Why were those brave, honorable men allowed to die waiting for military backup that never came and was never ordered by this unqualified and overwhelmed president? I was particularly aware of how Mr. Axelrod made it clear to Mr. Wallace, and all Americans, who were watching, that “I’m not in the White House”, quite the disclaimer, you [email protected]!

  • Hugh

    No, Axelrod, he met the coffins because it was a photo op and, literally, was the very LEAST he could do.

  • GreenDroll

    Obama was probably gloating about having turned these brave men into permanent democrat voters………..

  • donh

    Axelgrease likes to go to the zoo and watch the baboons climb a pole to scratch their butt.

  • Robert

    Why does Fox News keep asking Axelrod, a political advisor, questions as if he were a White House official?

    This gives both parties an excuse that questions are being asked, they are not, and answered, they certainly are not.

    It is a waste of time and shows a lack of seriousness, that Fox even accepts Axelrod on so often, and seems to consider him as a worthy official surrogate for Obama.

    Axelrod is nothing but a campaign operative, he even admits that he is not in the White House.

    Stop being such dupes, Fox!

  • regularguy

    Just imagine the sense of utter betrayal those brave men felt as they realized they were being left behind to die with no back up. And Obama knew all of this as he spoke before their caskets when the arrived here in the US. Another man is still in jail for a meaningless video they used to cover up their manifest cowardice. Jail would be too gentle for their crimes.

  • Robert

    And yet again it is the media who fails us, asking at least some of the right questions, but of the wrong person.


  • Glenn

    70% of military oppose the commander-in-chief. That is unprecedented.

  • GSrider

    Marxists like Axlerod and Obama sleep very well at night. These men were just collateral damage in their march to a perfect islamo/marxists union. There are many coffins waiting to be filled if this deranged president is re-elected.

  • Randy Ruby

    So the more dead soldiers that come back, the more Obama supports the military???

  • valerie

    Just how many coffins did he meet, and how did he use the resulting photographs?

  • rick

    Obama policies lead to them coming in coffins.

  • RealMc

    2 days photo op – empty chair POS.

  • Amash

    Best comments here are: he filled them and as always, it’s a photo opt or him.
    I don’t get it was Romney supposed to meet the coffins? I thought the C in C was the one who did that. Then again, Oblamer isn’t much of a C in C.

  • paul52

    Barry ‘committed’? It’s Bent Axlerod that needs to be ‘committed’. He makes James Carrville look like Mother Theresa.

  • Look-Out

    Here’s one more, you POS:

    If your guy loves the military so much, he can put those UN poll watchers on a plane to HAND DELIVER ballots to them and PERSONALLY bring them home. That way, there’s no chance that plane won’t go down and their votes won’t go up in smoke…oh, wait…silly me…that won’t guarantee anything, will it? ONLY WITH HIS OWN A$$ ON THAT PLANE WILL IT MAKE IT BACK SAFELY.

    He knew Chris Stevens. He knew Donald Young. HE LOVES NO ONE BUT HIMSELF. The deaths of FRIENDS are just BUMPS IN THE ROAD to getting what he wants.

    From what I’ve seen over the last horrifying four years, our military heroes haven’t been loved by that TRAITOR you defend, but made into TARGETS.

    yal and he tweeted about buying some coats for the winter as the coffins were being lifted down from the plane..he really cares..and Axelrod via Jarrett is the gopher who always UNSEALS records..great guy too. Somebody better stop samatha powers and sorus..they are trying to sale America to the UN right now before he exits the White House!

  • Patty

    Nightmare we have been subjected too, for four years.
    Barack Obama supports the military because he met the coffins at the airport.

    Obama has pitted vote in congress using our military as bait. Now, if military was so important why wasn’t there Military in place to save the lives of the four in Benghazi attack. OR JUST BE PRESENT, STANDING READY. Why did Obama and Hillary lie and denied to Americans.

    Military families of victims are livid with Obama’s AWOL position as Commander in Chief and they and the 4 Americans who died needed support throughout.

    We have heard from the mother and a the father of two of the dead Americans on this subject and if Axelrod, who I doubt, has even spoken to these families he would get an earful. THEY LOST A CHILD. I fear if Obama is re-elected he will continue to reduce our military even further and that will be our worse fear.

  • Patty

    As for being there to greet the families and coffins coming in. I suggest Obama didn’t have to be there had he should some command and responded properly months before when if was evidently clear the situation over there was dire.

    Obama had no ITEL meets in months.


    Exclusive: No Record of Intel Briefings for Obama Week Before Embassy Attacks

    If his treatment of these brave 4 Americans is any indication of his treatment of us, I cannot imagine the dire consequences we could face if attacked again.

    No confidence in Obama nor Axelrod as they have proven their lack of understanding that what a President does is not some trying to prove a point. PEOPLE DIED UNDER IS WATCH AND HE IS TO BLAME.

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    and as he benghzis more and more, he’ll meet those coffins, too. Just let him know when the planes land. If he’s in town, he’ll stop on over.

  • Patty

    Romney will take all three states in Axelrod’s mustache sweepstakes. He should not shave his mustache but rather pluck it out with tweezers one wiry guitar string at a time.

  • Patty

    I give Wallace an F for not putting Mustache man in his place.

  • Patty

    What president wouldn’t meet heroes coming home. Obama’s problem is had he done his duty to protect them, he wouldn’t be meeting coffins but BREATHING HUMAN BEINGS, WHO ARE HEROES.

    shame on Obama and Axelrod. Pray for Peace in our Nation as this administration is tearing us apart.


  • jb books

    There are no words left to describe these heinous people. Murderers all. Only two more days.

    A house in my neighborhood has consistently had numerous R/R signs in the yard for weeks. Yesterday an empty chair appeared. Says it all.

  • AuntieMadder

    Pardon my insensitivity, but dead soldiers aren’t difficult to support and please. Supporting living soldiers, on the other hand, requires some effort and genuine concern.

  • saveus

    is axelrod this stupid or does he think we are that stupid to believe him and obummer?

  • 10gallonhat

    Axelrod condescending to be on FoxNews and getting all defensive shows they’re really worried about losing the election.

  • bg
  • Joanne

    What this says about Obama is he has no shame and is a heartless b*stard who has a false sense of security to be able to show up to greet those coffins with the men he murdered. This takes a special kind of real low-life scumbag to show his face and to face the loved ones of the men passed.

    Breaking The War Mentality

    by Barack Obama
    March 10, 1983

    [“In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not
    exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and
    now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. [.] someone
    who leaves the established order in place.”]

    Young Obama Wrote Article Blaming
    America For ‘Growing Threat of War’

    [If Obama still has this sensibility, he could be poised to take American foreign policy sharply to the left, notwithstanding the centrist foreign policy team he has assembled. Moreover, since Obama didn’t recognize the Soviet menace during the Cold War and blamed the possibility of war entirely on the United States, there’s good reason to think that today he could lack the moral clarity needed to fight radical Islam.]

    September 22, 2012

    Muslim Brotherhood ‘infiltrated’ U.S. gov’t

    [The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has
    successfully penetrated both political parties and the delicate areas
    of defense and national security.

    Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, executive vice
    president of the Family Research Council, told WND’s Greg Corombos
    that people with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood are in vital
    positions within every significant area of the U.S. government. He
    specifically cited high security clearances for such people in the
    Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security.

    He said neither Republicans nor Democrats want to protest
    too loudly over concerns of being branded intolerant.

    Boykin said Republicans proved their weakness on the issue by roundly
    condemning Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., for sounding the alarm on
    this issue and specifically wondering about the Brotherhood ties of
    Huma Abedin, a top assistant to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    He also slammed the sequestration plan that has the military on course
    for an additional $500 billion in cuts over the next decade, saying that
    will weaken every branch of the service and that a naive rationale is
    behind it all.]

    Axeljoint’s comment ignores the Rahm Emanuel’s Principle — Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste.

    Everyone in their right mind knows why Obama does everything: To make Obama look good.
    The idiot’s Presidential Library will likely look like a pyramid.

    Thank you former President George W.
    Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush

    [As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this
    week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood
    and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.


    The Bushes went and met privately with these families for
    HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.

    If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the
    Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that
    a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about
    the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about
    them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.

    You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, the Palins, and other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.

    Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the
    Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with
    the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, you’ll answer to

    We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person
    for all they’ve done, and continue to do. They didn’t have to head to
    Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.

    The Obamas should have done that.

    But didn’t.


    Thank goodness George W. is still on his
    watch, with wonderful Laura at his side.]

    Obama suppressing the military vote

    [Wonder why absentee ballots being returned by the military is so low
    this year? For example, in September, the pivotal state of Ohio received
    about 9700 absentee ballot requests, whereas in 2008 there were over
    32,000. The answer: Pentagon report: Obama administration fails to set
    up voting offices on bases.

    The Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act mandates that every
    military base, except those in war zones, have a voter assistance office
    to ensure troops can register to vote and get absentee ballots. There
    are about 229 military bases worldwide. Now, only 116 will be open for
    voting assistance.

    Denying our military voting assistance is unconscionable. Our military
    personnel put their lives in jeopardy to protect Americans. But our
    government is not vigorously supporting their right to vote. Yet, in
    America the government is requiring welfare agencies to assist
    voters by providing absentee ballots.

    This willful neglect of the military voters smells rotten and
    spicious. Shame on you, Obama. Our country deserves better.

    Lorraine Koster, Sparks]

    Absentee ballots may have been destroyed in crash

    [Federal officials say that absentee ballots being sent to U.S. military
    serving in Afghanistan may have been burned in a plane crash.

    A top official in the Federal Voting Assistance Program this week notified
    election officials across the nation that a transport plane crashed at
    Shindad Air Base on Oct. 19.

    The crash resulted in the destruction of 4,700 pounds
    of mail inbound to troops serving in the area.

    Federal officials in their email to state election offices said they did
    not know if any ballots were destroyed. They also said the lost mail
    was limited to one zip code.

    But they recommended that election officials resend a new ballot to
    anyone who requested one since the first ballot may have been
    destroyed in the crash and fire.]

    Soldier Pays $90 to Vote Absentee

    [What’s the value of being able to vote? For one
    junior Army officer, it was worth almost $100.

    After 2nd Lt. Benjamin Nygaard had a few conversations
    with military colleagues about the challenges of getting
    an overseas absentee ballot in on time, he decided he
    wasn’t taking any chances.]

    Active service members upset
    over removal from voting rolls

    [TAMPA BAY, Florida – Local service members who have spent years
    serving the country are discovering this fall that they aren’t allowed
    to vote in the presidential election.

    Valrico resident and Navy Captain Peter Kehrig, who has been abroad
    for five years tells 10 News he feels cheated by a system that removed
    him from the rolls.

    Florida State Law requires county supervisor of elections offices to
    perform regular “maintenance” on its voter rolls to eliminate voters
    who have been convicted of felonies, moved out of the county, or
    may have died.

    Voters who miss two consecutive general elections (2010 and 2008,
    for instance) are mailed a letter to their residence warning them they
    will be removed from the rolls. But since the post office only forwards
    mail for six months, Kehrig never got it.]

  • Trysten

    Not only did Obama and his cabal of liars show up for a photo op, they used it as an opportunity to reinforce their lies about the phony movie trailer.
    You know they all synched their stories the night of the attack. They should all be in front of a firing squad.

  • DomesticGoddess

    This is just a soundbite for the brainless Obamabots. Axelrod the Ad Exec is repositioning Obama’s “brand” and “messaging.”
