I thought the great Obama was the smartest, with the highest IQ president we ever had?
This is what happens when TOTUS takes a vacation day!!
Watch the entire clip! It shows when he gave the posthumous medal to the soldiers family!!!
I sent this to every lib I know, put it on face book, etc.
Disgusting. Hopefully Rush nails him on this.
The best the democrat party & leftwing media could manage. HOW did he get elected?
President Obama Makes Horrible Mistake Dishonoring Medal of Honor Winners (Video)

Absolutely disgusting! There is not enough hate in me to properly hate this “man.” How is it possible he could award the Medal of Honor and NOT remember the circumstances under which it was earned?
Hillary landed in Bosnia ducking sniper fire. Obozo is presenting non-postumous medals postumously. What is WRONG with these people? May Jon Liebowitz will explain it tonight on the Daily Show.

Wonder why YouTube disabled the comments?
Obama really should just resign now.
He is a plague on the nation.
He is the modern day Typhoid Mary for the country.
This thig is only starting to get aroud. Hopefully Rush will play this clip and contrast it.
Damn Obama! FFFUUUBBBOOOO
Today at Fort Drum. In less than 40 seconds, Commander in Chief Obama mentioned himself 6 times, but, couldn’t keep the facts straight about a Medal of Honor recipient.
Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti died in Afganistan on June 21, 2006.
Obama presented the Medal of Honor to his parents on September 17, 2009.

The bastards in media went rabid on Sarah Palin’s Paul Revere comments. They talked about it for weeks. Even after she was proven to be correct, they still tried to nail her. Yet, when this lame ass president makes horrible mistakes, they say nothing. I say: FUO
What a disgrace.
I think Carter can finally say there has been a worse president than himself.
Four medals have been awarded for action in Afghanistan, and a fifth has been announced but not yet presented.
Since Vietnam, only one living person has been awarded the Medal of Honor (Giunta).
Keeping track of three of the Nation's most honorable men, two of whom died for their country. Is that simple respect so difficult to master?
What a contrast.
What? He was just one of the soldiers in the unbroken line of fallen heroes, many of which he saw in the audience today. We’ve known about his clairvoyance since the campaign days.
There is no excusing this. If he can’t distinguish between the two brave soldiers and remember their names, he doesn’t deserve to be the Commander-in-Chief. How to you forget and confuse what should have been two special and unique moments in time.
“In my time of service....” “I keep running into you guys.....” When I went to Iraq.....” “When I presented the Medal of Honor....”
Is it EVER not all about him?
What a sad, pathetic little man-child - always trying to make himself look important! I could feel sorry for him except for what he is doing to our country!
We know what DUmocrat LIEberals mean when they claim to "support the war on terrorism"...
DUmocrat LIEberals leave no doubt about what they mean when they "support the troops"...
Besides talking about himself, how does the repeated “you guys” resonate? I feel it is condescending, and the One does not even know that he is expressing his disrespect for men and women wearing our nation’s uniform.
Lord, please forgive me for hating Obama more than any other human on the face of the planet. Amen.
He needs to go the hell away and resign into solitude. He is a national disgrace and has done more harm to this country than all previous presidents combined.
It’s only been 7 months since he hogged the stage at the ceremony for the only living Medal of Honor winner!
The Friends reported this today with video.
What does it tell you when a Commander in Chief can’t remember the first Medal of Honor he presented posthumously ?
BUT!!! BUT!!! Let’s talk about Sarah Palin!
Did just the same.... and am in total agreement about his needing to simply step down.
May God give us the strength to survive this dangerous, self important idiot.
He must be doing coke again.
he is obviously bluffing his way through a situation in which he knows he is not qualified
he's got more cajones than brains, this has been his modus operandi probably his entire conscious life
he knows he can mesmerize a crowd ... all those guilty whites...all those resentful blacks and browns...he plays them ...substitutes what he doesn't know or feel, with disarming humor, homie talk, jive, “attempted” self deprecation (this falls flat because he is such a narcissist he cannot REALLY put himself down...
This wizard of oz routine put him into the Wh and has worked for him.... up until now
People know he is a fraud
He knows he is a fraud
and now, he knows THEY know he is a fraud
Obama will surely have a reasonable explanation:
“Giunta, Monti ... all those dago names sound the same to me. How come we can’t have Medal of Honor winners with real American names, like Obama?”
(BTW, the worst part of such an offensive statement would be that referring to recipients of the Medal of Honor as “Medal of Honor winners.”)
I guess that we should consider ourselves lucky that Obama didn’t say that he had awarded a Medal of Honor to “a Lieutenant Posthumous,” and wondering whether he was any relation to former Michigan Lieutenant Governor Dick Posthumus.
He didn’t forget, he didn’t misspeak and it wasn’t a gaffe. He just didn’t care, it meant nothing to him and had no impact on him in his role as CIC (so-called). It was just another day, just another photo op.
that’s part of his whole “I’m the first hip-cool-down/with/the/struggle president” shtick.
maybe they should give barky a bracelet so he can keep the name straight
Oh wait, he has a bracelet...so he told us
Anyone seen his bracelet since the campaign?
Anyone remember the name on Barky’s bracelet?
It tells me that he does not care one whit about that soldier, his sacrifice, his fellows, or this nation.
Sadly, it is nothing we did not already know. Now though, we have video evidence : /
May God bring comfort to Jared’s parents throughout this.
ping....imagine me shaking my head at this....
supposedly mentioned himself 6 times in 40 seconds
Then forgot the name of the hero he was there to talk about
Needs his adderall dosage increased
“My service”? “My service?? What effin service is he talking about. To Obama, his fighting the Republicans is the same as fighting the enemies of this country. This is the kind of left-wing ideologue that he is.
It is not possible for dishonor that soldier. What Obama did was dishonor himself, something he seems to donwith disturbing regularity.
He makes Jimmy Carter look like George Washington
Give or take a few there were about 1062 words in that speech. Out of those, 52 were the word “I”.
“Comrade” another word he used, is apparently one that he is accustomed as using as a complement.
In the first place comrade obama should understand that it is The CONGRESSIONAL Medal of Honor, and he has no right to even imply that he “awarded” it.
His vanity is even more disgusting than the incredibility insensitive remarks he made about the recipient. Referring to those honorable men as “you guys” is equally disgusting, as is his lament that he only gets to “run in” to them during the rough times.
These rough times seem to conveniently happen, when the greatest amount of cameras are coincidently at hand.
