Skip to comments.Obama Gives Shout Out to 'Congressional Medal of Honor Winner' Who Isn't
Posted on 11/06/2009 4:11:43 AM PST by chessplayer
The Washington Post this afternoon reported "President Obama delivers remarks on Ft. Hood shooting at end of tribal leaders conference." The transcript begins:
SPEAKER: PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
[*] OBAMA: "Please, everybody, have a seat. Let me first of all just thank Ken and the entire Department of the Interior staff for organizing just an extraordinary conference."
"I want to thank my Cabinet members and senior administration officials who participated today. I hear that Dr. Joe Medicine Crow (ph) was around, and so I want to give a shout out to that Congressional Medal of Honor winner. It's good to see you."
Ah, the dangers of giving shout outs without a teleprompter. Crow is not a Medal of Honor recipient. As noted by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society:
Crow's name is not included on the Society's Medal of Honor recipient list. He was, however, awarded the Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in August.
Obama, often described as "cerebral" by the mainstream media, should know the difference between the Medal of Honor and the Medal of Freedom, especially since he personally awarded the latter to Crow.
“Hey I see we have Hassan in the crowd. Stand up Hassan and let everyone see you. Thanks for serving on my transition team”.
I thought that was Biden’s job.
Must have been speaking without the teleprompter.
Please. To compare TOTUS to a clown, is an insult to the clown profession.
Remember, he blew off the MOH Inaugural Ball. I am actually happy he did not soil that event with his presence.
The transcript doesn’t do justice to the cheerful, almost flippant, tone the Fool-in-Chief set for his ‘statement’...
which one of the 57 states was he in when he gave this brilliant performance???
Hey Obozo, you don’t “shout out” to a Congressional Medal Winner, you salute. Even you.
hussein DIDN’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BECAUSE HE DOES NOT CARE AND DOES NOT RESPECT AMERICA OR HER HIGHEST HONORS.
Oh, you're on a ventilator, what am I talking about. Allah love you.
Obama will again address this tragedy during his next round of golf.
Also calls him a Congressional Medal of Honor winner, apparently not knowing that decorations for valor are awarded, not "won". Then again he doesn't know proper flag/national anthem protocol either, preferring the 2 handed testicle grab to the hand on heart thingy.
Rather significant difference between the 2 medals wouldn’t you say?? O doesn’t get such distinctions, concentrating, as always, on himself...
I thought medals were “awarded” not won
So he delayed his remarks about the Ft. Hood shooting to give a “shout out” boo-boo? Figures. And I loved the way in the video I watched yesterday he even regretted that the tragedy was taking him away from his prepared remarks. Classy.
This zero dirtbag is a TOTAL “Richard Cranium.”
Wher did the idea come from that he is such a good speaker ... broken, stop and start pharases that do not flow smoothly .... Jerking like a misadjusted clutch on a 62 Ford Fairlane.
I guesss it is because he sends tingles up the media’s legs. The last thing I want ... is the adoration from the moron media. Kiss of death.
It's not like Hasan was all bad. Besides being a follower of our Dear Leader, the shooter has done significant work in the field of population control to combat global warming.
Of course, with hussein's Pravda-like msm, there will be many people in the FIFTY-SEVEN states who will never hear about this.
TOTUS trumps POTUS.
The medal recognizes an act or acts of heroism and is awarded, but the recipient is usually referred to as winner.
We will never know of all of the acts of bravery that merit the award but were never documented or submitted for the MOH.
He should have given him a Nobel.
Just when you thought he could no get any worse...
Zero probablly doesn’t even know what the Congressional Medal of Honor is.
Good point of fact, but...
we can't POSSIBLY expect this hyper-typical far-left socialist POS to know this (or hardly anything else not Marxist or black nationalist in nature) or really care one wit for military history, tradition, or the fine people that have served, are serving, or ever will serve.
I never thought he was a good speaker.
He also called Ft Hood a “base” when it is a “post”.
“O” was packaged like a new cereal and foisted onto the American public scene. He has done NOTHING to justify his handlers’ opinion of him and continues to prove, DAILY, that he has NO fitness for the Presidency.
You would think that at some point he'd sit down with an some kind of basic ‘how-to’ book to avoid looking like a tourist in the WH. You can take what this clown knows about America and stuff it into the navel of a flea, and still have room for a galaxy!!!
TOTUS = POSOTUS
It should be obvious to all by now that he is nothing more than a media construction built up into an edifice that is now undergoing the wrecking ball of overexposure.
Shout - out??? Does this idiot think he’s on TRL?
This morning I truly thought my head would explode. Turned on the radio, WABC, and there was IMUS with a reporter speaking about our wonderful Comforter in Chief and the wonderfully emotional speech he gave after the shooting.
Next I hear IPUS saying how wonderful that O went to Dover that night.
CLICK.........and get me my blood pressure meds.
Your post #11 has to be the best post of all on this tragic thread about this tragic situation.
There once was a faker, Obama
Don’t know his own butt from Osama
Without Rahm Emmanuel
Every word to foretell
His life is one big gaff-o-rama
His tone is because he doesn’t give a damn-he was glad to have the distraction-he’s a stinking pos!
Is there a list of obamanisms? I’ve seen several lists of stupid Bushism quotes, but not one for obamanisms.
Everytime I see this clown I think of the John McCutheon song: There’s a boob on my TV”.
He wrote it about Bush, but it really fits Obozo better
Nothing “cerebral” about Hussein 0bama. He is a loser figurehead puppet of the Marxist revolutionaries who are rapidly taking over this nation.
The fact that he chose to stoke his own ego for over 2 minutes before ever bringing up the purpose of the speech is just another indicator.
This guy is just not ready for prime time and eventually even the libs are going to have to admit they are embarrassed.
It probably didn't make the transcript, but I clearly heard him call the murder of our troops as "an unfortunate accident."
He simply doesn't know the difference between an accident and jihad.
I’ve been thinking of comparing TOTUS to Hitler, but that would be an insult to Hitler. He actually got things done. TOTUS is more like Mussolini.
“The Clown-in-Chief strikes again.”
Well it SOUNDED good at the time......
If BUSH has done this, it would be Front Page News!!
No greater description sums up TOTUS, than Michael Savage labeling him “The Imposter”. A less than one term senator who voted “present”.
A media creation and is completely unqualified for the job. A total farce.
Has Crow stepped up to errrrrr eat crow on this?
It’s rare that I defend Sheik Obama, but he did not use the word “accident”. I think what you heard was “incident”.
I saw that. He was actually smirking/smiling at the time. He was like a local news talking head. Happy face for happy story and sad face for sad story.
I also don’t understand why everyone thinks he is such a great speaker. I don’t have TV so I hardly ever hear him. When I do, he sounds like a total poser. His “thoughtful pauses” don’t sound thoughtful to me. They sound like he is confused and can’t find words.
