Obama Steps In It – Claims Troops A “Good Photo Op”
http://www.radioviceonline.com ^ | November 19, 2009 | Stever McGough

Does President Obama "uses" the military for photo-ops?

President Obama will tell us his comments fit the mood of the crowd, but when I first heard Obama’s comments in South Korea stating hundreds of troops in uniform was a good photo op, my eyes rolled. Our American forces are not a political tool to be used by politicians in constant campaign mode as a photo op.

Couldn’t he just thank the troops and say he was humbled by their work effort and thank them for coming out to greet him? Nope. From today’s Washington Times…

Damn that teleprompter! Is it malfunctioning again? Or was it too lazy to go on a road trip?

ObaMAO has a habit of “faking” people representing certain professions. Like dressing up people to look like Doctors when they’re really SEIU hacks. You all sure these are real soldiers?

He’s lied about absolutely everything else with ease...

“Maybe I’m making too much of this”.

...I don’t think so at all. The real question is was this a Fraudian slip or purposely made as a demoralizer and/or to show the disrespect he really has for the military?

Nice shot of the Korean troops.

Obama seems to be in a CIC "photo mode".

The trotting through the headstones at Arlington (which is noted as something a President has never done)

The loading of the caskets at the airport(Only one family of a soldier gave him permission)

And now this rabble rousing reception....

I've said it from the beginning..."He's all about "what you see"...

Trying to create an "I love our troops" image...Pretty easy to see through him"

“You guys make a pretty good photo op,” the president said.

So glad to know my 18 year old son is graduating from Basic Training/MP School (Ft. Leonard Wood) next week & shipping out next month so he can be a great photo op for .....(choose your words wisely, YankeGirl...) his boss.

Sheesh!

I am offended and angry, sad and worried.

I think by now, everyone realises that presidents often use the military as photo ops. I see nothing wrong with admitting it.

One good thing about this usurper. When the time comes for him to order our military against the American citizens, I expect 98% of them to tell him to FO, and will proceed to turn their weapons on the REAL enemy.

“I am embaressed this clown is two of my son’s CIC.”

Same here. What a piece of work. Both of my military sons hate him.

I don’t know of a military family that does support this arrogant clown. I hate the fact that a close friend is in basic right now and that this horrible person is his CIC.

Yes, I agree that was a photo op too. As well as the surprise Thanksgiving trip to Iraq. But they were a show of appreciation, solidarity and a morale booster too.

I hope the service men & women there in Korea felt that way, but I don’t.

For Bammy and his Democrats they sure are.

Guess I should have put my sarcasm tag in there. I was trying to point out that the MSM will not give this egregious statement by B.O. one millionth the coverage that W took for the Mission Accomplished thing. I think W’s trips to our troops were sincere and morale boosting, not photo ops.

I’m trying to figure out if our career military high ranking officers actually support Obama or not.

I find it hard to believe anyone serving in any branch of service could support him but it sure seems as though career officers are doing just that.

Maybe I’m reading an overall respect for the office as support for Obama.

We’ve never had such an anti-military president or one that has put in place rules of engagement that literally assure their deaath and yet there has been no discent from our officers.

I hope I’m wrong and behind the scenes our officers are not in Obama’s corner.

Well the smiles could be hiding dislike in private for Obama.
