Obama Remembers Neil Armstrong with a Big Picture of… Himself
Soopermexican blog ^ | 8/25/12 | Soopermexican

Posted on 08/26/2012 6:54:53 PM PDT by penelopesire

When I heard Neil Armstrong had passed away, it took me a while to hit me fully. I saw people send messages of remembrance and commemoration, and decided I should do my own, to show how much respect I have for a real American hero:

el SOOPer@SooperMexican Neil Armstrong represented American hope, pride and excellence. And he took us to the moon. Godspeed on your trip through the heavens. 25 Aug 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite It is nearly literally the least I could do for someone that symbolized American greatness so thoroughly, and in so many aspects.

You know what I didn’t think to do? I didn’t think to post a picture of myself to remember Neil Armstrong. Never got into my mind that this was a good way to remember his greatness.

But then, I’m not president mompants:

Gosh how I pray he just does not get it. He pisses off more true Americans on a daily basis.

Neil Armstrong was a quiet, humble man who often downplayed his own accomplishments. The same cannot be said for Obama.

Yeah. Neil Armstrong had his own accomplishments. President Post Turtle just has handlers and teleprompters, and the guy who put him on the fence post.

He actually did that?

Good. Fracking. Grief.

Apparently so.

That is one sick little bammy.

And there ain’t no cure for him.

The President, the Moon, and Venus ... what a very fine way to remember a great American like Neil Armstrong.

... NOT!

It truly is unreal. Isn’t it? He is such a sociopathic narcissist.

I wish I could post the pic but I am on my iPad and don’t know how.

If anyone can I would appreciate it.

The narcissist in chief says, “when you remember Neil Armstrong, remember me”.

The great book on Obama, exposing his dysfunctional White House, instead of the title The Amateur should have been called The Arrogant Amateur.

If Obama just had some accomplishments to down play.

He could have recalled his personal recollections of Neil Armstrong, like the time Neil called him out on cutting NASA’s budget and dumping manned space flight.

How about furthering the spread of radical Islam by promoting the Arab Spring and also wrecking the American economy. (You didn't say they had to be good accomplishments.)

Neil Armstrong represented everything great about the US.
Barack Obama RESENTS everything great about the US.

Neil Armstrong is the epitome of Americas exceptionalism. Obama WILL NEVER honor Neil beyond a few obligatory words.

I'm hoping against the state funereal like I was hoping RWR didn't pass away during Clinton's term.

I cannot stand the thought of such an occasion to honor someone we all love & respect denigrated by megalomaniacs and ther politics.

On a side note, this website is kinda funny in its jabs to Bath-House Barry.

Obama’s answer to Chick-fil-A? Starting his OWN restaurant: “Pup-fil-A”.

I was thinking the same thing when I heard about the effort to give him a state funeral. You know Obama will politicize it to the max and the media will too.

Thanks for posting the picture and making me sick. NASA is supposed to be reaching out to the Muslim world, I guess showing their flag on the remarks about Neil Armstrong is about as good a slap in the face of America as he can come up with. He did a good job. I can’t think of anything more vile.

I was going to skip this thread as irrelevant satire until I saw that you posted it. NOT satire.

There’s no more words left. If he wasn’t so dangerous, he would just be a small tragic buffoon.

Speaking of space and yes, a little off topic, I am watching a UFO right now in Georgia. It is maybe 4000-5000 ft in the air and is green and red. I looked at it through binoculars and it looks like an amoeba, changing shapes.

Totally freaking out.

Saw an identical one come close to it and then disappear.

I think it came from Obama’s twitter account. It was an old stock photo too....Obama could not even be bothered to do something new.

This makes me ILL.

OK a couple of things--Obama, as the president, should be referring to Neil as Neil ARMSTRONG.

Next--he used the word further instead of a contextual farther.

Next--his words:

"Neil's spirit of discovery lives on in all men and women who have devoted their lives to exploring the unknown--including those who are ensuring that we reach higher and go further in space.

He's not talking about ground control or R&D support *indiviuals*...he's talking about CENTRAL PLANNING--government.

He's saying that "Neil" (should also have said Armstrong) DIDN'T BUILD THAT--that he didn't "go there."

I knew it was him the instant I saw it: all the telling
details were there: the ears, the hands in pockets,the over-composed photo itself and how it manages to both put Obama at the center of it, while suggesting he is humble and awestruck (mainly by his own humility).
It’s beyond tone-deaf-—it’s shamelessly manipulative and cynical, and shows it will use EVERY occasion to associate
Obama with anything it can for political gain.

Strange too that Obama would even have the nerve since he cut our space program to the bone.
