This was absolutely awful.
Barack Obama made another horrible mistake today. The president visited the 10th Mountain Division today and congratulated them on their service. Then he told the soldiers that he had given the Medal of Honor to Jared Monti who came back from Iraq alive. Jared Monti was actually killed in Iraq in 2006. How sad.
First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasnt receiving it posthumously.
Blackfive caught the presidents horrible gaffe.
As we all know, SSG Sal Giunta, of the 173rd Airborne, was the first living recipient (2011) of the MOH who fought in Iraq/Afganistan. SFC Jared Monti, 10th Mountain Division, was KIA in Afghanistan in 2006. He was posthumously awarded the MOH by Obama in 2009.
How does the Commander-in-Chief mix these heroes up? He put that medal around Giuntas neck and he stood with Montis parents as they grieved.
This ranks up there as one of his worst gaffes ever. How awful.
This ignorant sack of rat crap aside that pic seems shopped big time.... Wouldn’t the image projected be on his back an arm if his body an arm are casting a shadow on it ?
Precedent Erkel Mugabe is a big enough pos polidiot on his own.
Doom on him an his handlers for what he’s done yesterday, today and tomorrow....
Im telling you AGAIN....Hes on some kind of drugs...His mind is always elsewhere...trying to find where it is supposed to be. Its why he needs the monitors...
The bottom line is that it just doesnt matter that much to him.
You’re right. He’s going through the motions for public consumption and the MSM cover for his blunders. Behind the scenes, his treachery is endless.
Their faces and body language show contempt. I could only watch 10 seconds of the wicked basatard.
There is some light on the shoulder, but none on the back - I don’t know. But that image is posted at the Duke Ellington website with the caption of him signing the screen. They may have been duped as well.
wow, such screaming logic! Where can I link to this?
In the liberal world, what you say isn’t as important as whether you are a liberal. That is, if you are a liberal, you are not supposed to be fact-checked, because, hey, you’re a liberal so you must be OK.
That’s why Hillary thought she should get away with so many gaffes (like running from the plane while bullets were flying in Iraq, or was it Afghanistan, but who cares). And why she could say she was named after Edmund Hillary, who climbed Mount Everest, even though she was already five years old when the unknown beekeeper made the climb.
Fact-checking is only supposed to be applied to people who are supposed to care about facts, ie, conservatives.
“I actually heard he had an IQ of ~160...LOL”
Perhaps in base 32........ that would give him an IQ of 50 in Base 10 - which is about right.
He flubs this not because he forgets but because he doesn’t bother to remember. If I looked into the faces of this fine, young man’s parents while presenting this, our highest honor, I sure as heII would not forget. Obama is a disgrace to the office of the presidency.
who’s the midget?
is that Robert Reichhhhhhhshhhha?
I thought lobs considered IQ tests to be racist...
I heard that on some talk show and it was a lib who was speculating.....
Wow! If that’s the award ceremony, it’s putting it mildly to say that she’s inappropriately dressed. Also, she looks like the Incredible Hulk in that picture (or the Incredible Hulk’s backside, at least). I know she can’t help being a giantess, but she sure could have worn something more appropriate.
Just one more thing for the media to ignore. And the Monti`s will get NO apology from that stinking jerk.
Would have loved for the Monti`s to have interrupted him and straightened him out, but they would have probably feared for their lives if they had tried it. Hard telling what crap face would have done to them if they had.
