Report: Obama Sick And Tired Of Soldiers On Baghdad Visit
Pat Dollard ^ | 1/12/12 | Buzzfeed:

Michael Hastings’ new book, The Operators, jabs at what could be a vulnerable spot for the Obama Administration, the president’s relationship with the troops.

The book describes a visit to Baghdad:

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.

He’s asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He’s asked to sign copies of his book. “He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,

I’m sick and tired of Obama and this makes me even more so. He makes Mitt Romney look good, which is quite an accomplishment. Indeed, Obama even makes Jimmy Carter look good. Carter, for all his failures as President, would never cop this attitude towards the men and women in uniform.

explains why he said the military are good for a photo back drop once and why he is ruining the military by putting homos and cross dressers in it openly and Romney will be no better if elected and that is why we need to stop the Rino and get someone with guts and who understands this great military and how it is run and not by PC like now

“He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,”

Real men always intimidate sissies.

I'm not a Romney fan (Newt) but your statement is totally out of line and, if I may say, PATHETIC

Obama complains and refuses to spend time with the troops WHILE WE ARE AT WAR AND THE SOLDIERS ARE RISKING THEIR LIVES for the county that he is supposed to lead.

This puke isn’t qualified for the job of scrapping dog crap off the boots of our soldiers.

Here is the full quote:

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.

“He’s asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He’s asked to sign copies of his book. “He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,” a State Department official tells me.

“Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let’s just say the scales fell from my eyes after I did. These are people over here who’ve been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn’t want to take f**king pictures with them?”

er what on earth are you on about

queers and cross dresser serving openly are ruining the military but you would not know that because you’re not in it as certainly not in a combat unit.

See already pals still serving have said that these queers are thinking this is a queer parade and yes there has been problems.

You can defend your homosexuals as much as you want but the fact remains that turd poking or a woman wearing a strap on during sex is not normal and not natural and yes the homosexuals you really want to defend need mental help

You see once you get yourself out of your little liberal ho,mo circle of pals then you might see the real world

oh and have you served in a combat unit?
No I bet

I bet too you follow a religion but have no problem with queers because you know a couple , am I right?

See if you follow being Catholic etc then go by it and if you want to talk about the military and queers and cross dressers in it then be in that too .

you have done both right ????????????????????

Obama is a Clinical Psychopath.

I have been saying this for years now, and this is further evidence of that.
