Obamas pay Pearl Harbor tribute
Politico ^ | 12/30/11 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 12/30/2011 11:48:04 AM PST by ColdOne

HONOLULU — President Barack Obama paid his respects at Pearl Harbor on Thursday, offering a solemn tribute to the thousands of Americans killed on the “date which will live in infamy.”

The president swapped his casual vacation outfit for a dark suit as he and the first lady toured the memorial on his first visit to the site since he came here in late 2008 as president-elect.

My niece and her husband are stationed at Pearl Harbor.
She told me the commander asked for volunteers to escort that family, not one person volunteered....so he gave orders for escorts.

It’s an election year, one of his people probably told him it would be a good idea to stop over and pay the Arizona a visit. I am sure he didn’t think of it himself.

Ain’t that just special? On a Friday even. And had to miss at least nine holes, what with getting dressed, the motorcade and all. What a leader! What a guy! What a ....

Lemme guess! He bowed and scraped and apologized to the Japanese people and Emperor for ear damage caused to Japanese pilots flying overhead when American ships suddenly blew up below them.

( I stole that from a MAD magazine cartoon about 45 years ago.)

Oh brother! Like they care?? How obscene and transparent is this what with Moochie at NASCAR, now Pearl Harbor and other events that they have attended like “regular folk” when we all know they used a barf bag when they got back in the car. Those 2 along with their commie minions and the corrupt press are all out in full gear ain’t they?

That commander should be “shundt” in the vernacular of the Amish. Never ask your troops to do something you wouldn’t willingly do.

“Yesterday December 29th 1941 a day that will live in infamy”.
Hmm, something doesn’t sound right.

Thanks for the info. That's actually a very heartening thing to read today. God bless our troops.

The best ‘tribute’ Zero could have made was to stay the hell away from a sacred American memorial. Pretended reverence from a Kenyan is the last thing we need there.

Oh, noes! Moochie covered up her toned biceps, much to the disappointment of the gathered crowd.

And I do mean “gathered crowd”. They probably had to pay people to show up at this extravaganza of faux concern for deceased US warriors.

Umm...wtf? No, really, WTF?!? She looks pretty bad a lot of times, but this has to be one of the worst. I think it’s deliberate. That’s the only reasonable explanation for this one.

Had Obama been POTUS on Dec. 7th 1941, he would have capitulated to the Japanese on December 8th.

The same scenario played out at my command whenever Slick Willy and Her Thighness showed up. The boss had to order people to stand in the “Grip and Grin” line. Fortunately, the boss liked me, so I never had to suffer that particular humiliation.

I notice how casually Obama is leaning back from his seat. Reminds me of the photo of him in Chief Justice Robert’s office leaning casually on the back of a chair and smiling also. This guy is the ultimate narcissistic self serving anti USA ever to be foisted on this Nation. We should recognize that even those traits are nothing more than a shill for his international enablers, bankers and Arabs.

Dress...too long, too tight...and my, my striped at her widest part - so flattering (NOT!). The woman is basically a slob about her clothes and image, especially when not being attended to by paid groomers (even then she succeeds in always looking odd). And, take a look at that face, obviously her thousand-dollar a day make over specialist is somewhere away on vacation, too. She looks like her “real” self sans the wigs, false eyelashes, heavy make-up and over arched eyebrows. But, no matter how she dresses up or down, she always reminds me of a court jester just begging for laughs.

That MAD Magazine article from around 1963 contrasted how Hollywood depicted Germans & Japs in movies made during World War Two and after the war was over.

IIRC,

(During) “The Japanese soldier is bucktoothed, sadistic, and screams orders in pidgin English.”

(After) “The Japanese is usually an officer whose teeth are capped and speaks soft, impeccable English.

The MAD article did indeed predict that future WWII films would have FDR apologizing to Hirohito for exploding U.S. ships giving Japanese pilots headaches.

Those pieces of cloth that 0bama’s beard is wearing are so incredibly hideous that it cannot be done by accident. She looks like that runner (or whatever it was) from South Africa who claimed to be a “she” but wasn’t....

Should have added - the commander’s wife looks none too pleased.

I think it’s weird for Zero and beard to hold hands at such an event. Weird.

Oh yes, AFTER the war, Japanese soldiers would look more like an oriental Tab Hunter. From the same cartoons.
