Obama Shouldn't Be Presenting Medal of Honor Awards

Posted on 02/11/2013 11:05:25 AM PST by ConservativeMan55

What a disgrace to our country!

He's given a script to read about then uhms and ah's his way through it.

I cannot stand to hear this man speak. He is SO full of himself.

He doesn't belong in the same room of a Medal of Honor Recipient.

Once Obama is impeached I hope to never have to see or hear this man again.

I wonder if there’s a way through legislation to have someone else present it.

Believe me, after he is out of the White House, he isn’t going to go away.

I wish he would go away.

Maybe he’ll resign in disgrace after one of his many scandals is uncovered.

He could get caught with a male prostitute who is spying for the Russians and his sycophants would still love him.

And he says “God Bless the United States of America (that I’m trying to bring down in the least obvious way possible)”

It’s almost like they’re in a trance.

It’s a happy thought, but this evil liar isn’t going to resign, be impeached, or anything else. It’s not going to happen. The very best we can hope for is that some of his evil is undone once his term is finished, and I have scant faith in that, because of the “ratchet effect”. The ratchet effect is one of the truest explanations of the workings of the ship of state that I’ve ever heard.

“O” shouldn’t be appointing ‘czars’ or anything ELSE... but he does!

I have to assume he must have a picture of every single Conserative Congressman making it with a donkey ... I can’t think of any other reason why they all roll over and play dead for him!

They are uncovered. He's still there.

Has 0bama ever gone one week without making a speech on television?

Looks like it’s possible....

Every reference I’ve found says it’s “generally” or “usually” presented by the president, but I haven’t found any examples of where it hasn’t.

The president generally throws out the first World Series pitch, too, but the Fraud’s masters saw how well that worked out and won’t have Hussein embarrass us THAT way again.

Unfortunately, deserve has nothing to do with being President. Get over 270 electoral votes and you get to do a lot of things that you might not deserve, but unfortunately in a Republic that is what it boils down to.

and when I enter the valley of death

I will be resolute and fear no evil
And my Lord in heaven will guide my sword.

He is even a greater narcissist than Clinton, who refuses to go away. Obama will never be impeached because there is not ONE Republican in congress who will stand up to him, and the mainstream media will defend him to the death. He could commit first degree murder on national tv, and no one would do a thing.

True. I try to think of it as the President of the United States--the office, not any particular President--awarding the Medal of Honor.

I also disagree with the premise of this thread. Obama awarding the Medal of Honor does not "disgrace" the country, because an insignificant nothing like 0bama is not capable of "disgracing" the country. We are better than that. Medal of Honor recipients are certainly better than that.

Like him or not, he's the CIC and the one that should present the Nation's highest honor to SSGT Romesha. It is a solemn ceremony and serious. I am glad many of his members of “B” Company of the 61st Cavalry were there with him on this occasion. The SSGT deserved it.

“Has 0bama ever gone one week without making a speech on television?” A whole week???? Obama can’t go one day without putting us through the misery of having to see and hear him on television. I wish we could be blessed without seeing or hearing him for one whole week on TV. All I can say is GOD have mercy on those of us who love you.

I don’t really consider him CIC.

I know I am going to catch an earfull for this.... BUT... Yes. yes he should. He is the president and he should do it.
I agree that the recipient of the medal has more patriotism, integrity, decency, and love of God and country in his pinky finger than Zero has in his whole body and Zero should be honored to be in the same room with these men.

But the Office of the President... the Commander in Cheif presents these medals. Right now that happens to be a communist jackwagon, but its the position that I respect, not the man.
So yes, the man in Office should do it.

He doesn’t deserve it, but life sucks.
