BO shaking hands with WWII vets in Normandy

Posted on 06/06/2014 2:53:29 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Anyone else see this nonsense? Obama is going around shaking the hands of WWII heroes. Really hate seeing it, as I do not believe he cares one damn bit about them.

Do you all think the veterans THERE care? Seriously, I would not shake his hand if I were a vet.

Hopefully he said he was sorry for kicking them out of their memorial last year... But that would require humility instead of hubris.

Same Pres that shut down the WWII memorial in DC. They’re not dumb. They’re being polite.

The thought of the POS POTUS soiling the hallowed grounds of Normandy is nauseating.

just by being there, obozo profanes the memory of so many young Americans who had courage, honor, and a love of freedom that made them willing to risk their lives so others could be free.

obozo is the opposite of those brave young soldiers. his godless and evil arrogance is a desecration to the very ground that was soaked with the blood of American heroes.

They did not fight and die so that someday in the United States of America there would be a “President Barack Hussein Obama”.

Just heard there was ramped up rhetoric by the Clown, he almost shouted praises of WWII veterans....some even have him a standing ovation.

Delusional.

It’s a filthy dirty shame that this Kenyan-born, anti-American, and anti-military POS has the nerve to touch the hands of soldiers who helped to end WWII.

This pencil necked sissyboy coward was probably laughing inside at the old men while shaking their hands. Pathetic! That’s why I’m not going to watch news today.

And isn’t this the same bastard who kicked them out of their memorial last year? Too bad one of them didn’t lash back at him this morning and refuse to get anywhere near him.

I thought it was Bo the dog who was “shaking” hands with the veterans. Seriously I thought Bo was giving them the paw. I was expecting a cute picture and instead it is the jerk. I would not have hit this thread had I known it was the King.

To bad it isn’t near the cliffs... be nice to see one of them push the SOB over.

Personally, I wouldn’t shake hands, wait for the camera and turn my back when approached.

I seem to recall one D-Day anniversary, Zero’s administration didn’t even acknowledge the date. Perhaps I am wrong, but I seem to remember that. I wouldn’t shake his hand for a million dollars.

I saw something wonderful on British television last night. They were discussing the days events on a news review, which basically came down to the 70th anniversary of D-Day and a speech by Obama that seemed to endorse Scotland staying part of the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom staying part of the EU. In response to the effect this would have a Scottish commentator said "Ah, yes Barack Obama. A man whose standing in the world increases the further he gets from America!"

I just thought it was quite funny.

If a vet refused to shake the traitor’s hand...it would never make the evening news.

El Rushbo said once that if you refuse to shake the Prez’s hand, you get taken down by the Secret Service for possibly concealing a weapon and THEN you go into their database ‘cause anyone brazen enough to diss the Prez to his face MUST be a potential assassin.

Yahoo opening page shows a series of headlines with photos to choose from. The image accompanying the story of Obama honoring our veterans is telling. When I click through to read the AP referenced story by Nedra Pickler and Julie Pace, the image is not included in the photo gallery.

the AP/Yahoo image illustrates Obama standing amongst saluting veterans while this CiC does not salute, instead he has his right hand on his chest (the man has no heart).

As the current CiC, standing among the few surviving veterans and family of that era, shouldn't he also be saluting? Or is this just another example of how an administration dramatically short on military protocol & experience - just par for the course?

The President has more experts on etiquette than you can shake a stick at. I’ve no doubt he’s not supposed to salute. It’s when he breaks from etiquette that it stands out (see his odd fixation with bowing to people).

That anti-American Marxist bastard has no right to render a military salute!

I saw a clip earlier this morning. It made me want to vomit and to throw something through the TV at the same time.

That POS isn’t fit to look any one of those men in the eyes.

Yeah, he supports the troops who are sons of Islam. But say you’re a Marine who has served honorably and ended up in a Mexican jail...you don’t merit notice.

Mooch has “adopted” military families as one of her pet causes, dating back to the early days of his first term.

But if you review her history on that issue, you’ll see a predictable pattern. There was an initial flurry of activity, followed by months of inattention. Whenever they need a photo op, Michelle and Jill Biden will rush out to a military base, tout the latest initiative, pose with a few military families, then head back to the Washington cocoon. Wait many months, then repeat.

Zero’s contempt for the military is blatantly obvious; the Bergdahl exchange is merely the latest in a series of slaps at those who wear the uniform. But Mrs. Obama gets a pass because “she cares.” What a load. Where was she when they raised co-pays and other out-of-pocket costs for Tri-Care? Why wasn’t she leading the protests when military commissaries were on the chopping block, and Michelle and Jill were running for the tall grass when the VA scandal broke. Where was their concern for injured military personnel transitioning into the VA system?

Someone ought to track the number of military base visits by Michelle over the past six year, and the number over the rest of her husband’s term. I’ll predict you’ll see a dramatic drop; with Barry no longer on the ballot, there is less need to use the military as a prop or photo-op backdrop.

Every day Obama is President dishonors the men and women who fought to preserve our freedom. Every day our freedom slips away. Every day our Constitution and way of life is gradually subverted and ridiculed by this administration and their lackeys in the press. It is outrageous to hear Tom Brokaw weep over the sacrifice of the “Greatest Generation” while he at the same time support the very President who is hell bent on disgracing their legacy.
