Skip to comments.Obama says Hagel won two Purple Stars

From a "live chat" Obama had yesterday afternoon. He corrected himself to say "Purple Hearts." Simply a slip of the tongue or yet another evidence of profound and invincible ignorance?
Yeah. And don’t forget ‘’corpseman’’.
And the citation reads: “In service of the male sex everywhere and as an aggressive hitter of all things female, above and beyond the call of duty and nature; FReeper Lazamataz is hereby awarded two Green Clovers and three Yellow Moons’’.
Please produce the evidence!
I think Barney the dinosaur gives those out.
Good for you Chuck Hagel!
If the media didn't catch on to the CIC reading "corpse men" (a glaringly obvious gaffe to anyone who's been in the military) from the teleprompter, a "Purple Stars" reference will surely never see the light of day.
I shall try to mark the time. Running it now. Good call. Verify.
I am actually listening to the lying liar lie. Above and beyond the call of duty. I seldom regret that I quit drinking.......
uh uh uh uh uh lie uh uh uh uh lie uh uh uh uh lie
Thanks. Like many on this Blog, I’m sure, I immediately change the channel or hit the mute button whenever I see or hear the Poseur. So..., I would appreciate your marking the time. Not only will that spare me a bit of agony, but when I forward the link to friends and family, I can advise them of the good spot, sparing them an otherwise repugnant experience.
The evidence comes at exactly 40:00 in the video. The other day during the presentation of the ‘Medal Of Honor’ to the Army Soldier, Obama at the podium stated the trooper was hit with ‘Sharp-nel’ instead of Shrapnel.
Excellent! Thanks a lot
I think Obama meant brown stars.
As a holder of the Purple Heart, you don’t WIN the danged thing. No soldier set out to WIN a Purple Heart. You don’t get into a firefight and say, man, I hope I can WIN a Purple Heart today! Idiots. It is an award for wounds received in action by enemy fire. Not awarded for falling down and cutting your pinky finger as our wonderful Sec of State did.
Well said. Forgive me if I said it wrong
Obama says “has two Purple Stars.” I misquoted him. I guess it’s all over for me, now.
If the press gets to lambast Marco Rubio for taking a sip of water, I think we should get to lambast the President for calling it a Purple Star instead of a Purple Heart.
——stars, hearts, 57 states....
What difference does it make.....SARC
I wonder if my husband’s grandfather would feel like he “won” his purple heart. He was killed in Pearl Harbor.
It’s not necessary for the Commander in Chief of the armed forces to know the name of the medal awarded to soldiers injured or killed defending the Country.../s
