She didn’t criticize his “salute” she attacked him for turning dead troops into a photo-op for his never-ending campaign.

O’Donnell is truly one of the most crazed commentators on the left. Worse than Olbermann.

That's right. The President visited families. The last thing he wanted to do, as Obama is doing now, is to mark the return of our heroes as nothing more than a campaign stunt.

"She didn’t criticize his “salute” she attacked him for turning dead troops into a photo-op for his never-ending campaign."

Absolutely right. And, it's not like the White House just released a single photograph by the official White House photographer, which I suppose could be defended as a "historical record". Nope, Obama invited a hoard of media photographers - to include still and video photographers - with him. I've said on another thread, fallen service members are not props to be used in a photo-op. Obama's actions are unforgivable.

President and First Lady Laura Bush did that and much more. It is a crime that such good people have been vilified by our nation’s domestic enemies.

There are plenty of areas to be critical of Bush; this is not one. He often snuck into military hospitals and insisted the media not know or not cover his activity. Say what they will about him, his respect and admiration for the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform is beyond reproach.

Yes, Bush and Cheney opted to NOT take advantage of an immoral photo op at the expense of the families of these brave men and women who have given the last full measure.
It’s quite telling that 0bama couldn’t exhibit the same sensitivity.

It’s time to take back the country.

Are they referring to ‘that guy’ who refused the pledge of allegiance. That photo needs more air time.

Obama’s actions, by contrast, seem to indicate that our country’s defense and the protection of our men and women in uniform are his last priority, what with a schedule crowded with health care campaigning, DNC fundraising (22 events in nine months, compared to Bush’s eight in 12), Olympic lobbying, special interest group appeals, lavish White House parties, and golf.

(To check out the White House’s dream bubble, visit ObamaFoodarama.)

Though his title is commander in chief, Obama had no time to consult with General McChrystal until embarrassed by the general’s response to an interview question that the president had spoken to him only once in 70 days. The general was quickly summoned for a 25-minute meeting/photo op/dressing down on Air Force One when the president landed in Copenhagen.

A soldier gives his life in Afghanistan, while the commander in chief goes politicking.

Bush certainly did not show up with a press posse of 24. IIRC, he also hand wrote notes of condolence to the families. (I could be wrong on that one)

He may not have always gotten it right, but he could make decisions. He spent at least 20 hours a week on the wars. He did not have to ponder the true cost of war.

I pity O'Donnell. It cannot be much of an existence if it is based on rage and hatred.

Aside from the evil of his using this as a photo-op, he did look like a jerk. He obviously has no idea of how to salute and he looked like a little boy playing soldier. I guess it was so he could get his chin up in the air.

O’Donnell crazed? You mean like when he lost it with John O’Neill?

That is such a lie. You lie. You are a creepy liar that tells dirty lies. You have been lying for 35 years and you are still telling creepy lies, you dirty little lying creepy liar.

O’Donnell is predictably, and typically displaying the liberal lack of ability to understand and appreciate the difference between giving honor and seeking glory, or benefitting in some way.

It’s shocking at times. Think of the Wellstone “memorial” which they turned into a political event.
The left is so used to politicizing everything that it’s not surprising to see people like O’Donnell spending time publicly chastizing former POTUS Bush and VPOTUS Cheney for NOT politicizing the deaths of our service men and women. Their sense of right and wrong is warped.

That's because they had the CLASS to not intrude on, and make political points, off a time of profound grief for these families.

Didn’t I read that there was only one family who would allow the photo op of 0bama with their deceased soldier’s casket? As I recall, the others refused his request.

Someone else will have to find that news story . . . WND maybe?
