President Obama Visits Wounded Troops (guess how he "visited" our fallen soldiers)
Blackfive ^ | June 22, 2009 | blackfive

Posted on 06/22/2009 7:50:23 PM PDT by max americana

David Borden Jr. was wounded in Iraq on January 19, 2008. A suicide bomber rushed him and detonated, and Borden was hit by over 200 pieces of shrapnel. He lost right leg (below the knee) and his left arm was severely damaged. He was in a coma for over a month.

He's inspired more than a few people while recovering. The NY Giants football team reports that he's the grandson of a NY Giant.

According to the email below from his father, David Borden (Sr.), David Jr. had an uninspiring visit from the President of the United States: Since Dave Jr. has been injured he has met and been overwhelmed by many, many political and military "celebs". The list includes Bob Gates, Sec. of Defense, who came into his room and told him 3 or 4 times that if Dave Jr. had any issues to call his cell phone number. It includes Gen. Petereus who sat and talked with Dave Jr. for almost 45 minutes. The General recalled vividly all of the circumstances around the events that led to fighting that Dave was involved in. It includes Sen. McCain who arrived late on a Saturday afternoon during a thunder storm, unannounced, and talked to Dave Jr. about how similar their experiences with fate. It includes George Bush when Dave Jr. was invited to attend the very last Christmas party at the White House for the White House Staff. President Bush and his wife entered the ballroom and immediately went to Dave Jr.. President Bush knew Dave Jr.'s name as well as when and how he was injured. Dave Jr. had a picture taken with Laura and the President that he has framed and ill cherish forever. The list goes on and on of people coming in to meet Dave Jr. and the other wounded warriors at Walter Reed and Bethesda.

Yesterday. Dave Jr. was ordered to be at the National Naval Hospital with another 12 soldiers and Marines to meet with Obama. Obama was supposed to arrive at 11:30 AM. He finally got there at 3:00 PM. He entered the room with the wounded warriors and quickly shook each of their hands. He never asked their names, where they were from, or how they were injured. Then he left.

Dave Jr. has met the people who really care about the military. All he remembers from Obama is a weak handshake. The others in the room, younger and less exposed to the people that Dave Jr. has met, were so disappointed. Word about Obama's "insensitive" visit has spread to the MATC ( the rehab facility) at Walter Reed and throughout Bethesda. The military sees through his phoniness.

All I can say is that it is such a disappointment that this man is Commander-In-Chief of our Armed Forces. He is an embarrassment to our Nation.

Regards, Dave

So this poor guy was ordered to be at a different facility than he’s already in, so he could meet the worst American (not really) president in history?

The lack of consideration for time seems to be one of his personality flaws. And a sign of narcissism.

3 1/2 hours late and a weak handshake?

Why am I not surprised? He’d rather be hang’n with his ACORN buddies.

An utter outrage an hour with Obama! It is like he is doing it all on purpose at this point. It has gone way beyond just being a radical leftwing POS...he is trying to demoralize even our troops now!

Pray for our country!

Didn’t even ask their names?

Didn’t Zero have a big screw up during the debates when he didn’t seem to know the name of the military hero on his wristband that he told us he was so proud of?

What were the details of that? Seems like a pattern of behavior.

“The lack of consideration for time seems to be one of his personality flaws. And a sign of narcissism.”

Yup, it’s a common trait of a narcissist. Basically, only HIS time and HIS presence matter. To zero, these people don’t even really exist until and unless HE is there. And then they only exist as props.

Hey!

He got the wounded out of their beds to wait for him for over three hours!

Dosen’t that count for PT (physical therapy) time, before he gave them a limp wristed fish handshake!

What an A-Hole of a President and Commander in Chief!

This visit needs to be exposed on Glenn Beck’s show, Levin’s show, Hannity’s show and by the GOP in TV ads.

I plan to send the link to this thread to my entire address list and ask them to send it out over the Internet. These stories will be buried by the MSM. That’s why we must get it out.

What does that tell you about the corrupt bunch.

Glen had a ex acorn member on and they were discussing the plantation mentality of the organization.

Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like a good President. When he tossed the rose at the grave, like he was shooting a free throw, instead of gently and respectfully laying it down, I knew he did not have what it takes. I was so hoping the first black President would be a good one.

This is sad but predictable.

Later "he'll" wax philosophical about the hope that "he" instilled in "his" men, and how honored they were to have meaningful dialogue with "him", and that "he" was aware of a profound patriotism, which "he" seemed to bring out in them when "he" personally watched while "he" had "his" own aids push the wheelchair bound into the gym so they could watch "him" shoot a 3 pointer.
