Book: 'Cranky' Obama Complained About Taking Pictures With the Troops
Fox News ^ | 1/12/12 | Buzzfeed

Posted on 01/12/2012 3:26:15 PM PST by Nachum

Michael Hastings' new book, The Operators, jabs at what could be a vulnerable spot for the Obama Administration, the president's relationship with the troops.

The book describes a visit to Baghdad:

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.

This is the guy that lounges in a recliner sideways all day long watching ESPN in the Whitehouse smoking cigarettes.

He knows the looks he is getting from the military.

Being a cranky spoiled brat and complaining about having to be around our military is un-Obamalike? This reporter must have an entirely different image of the Community-Organizer-in-Chief from those of us who have actually watched and listened.

Un-Obamalike? I don't think so. This is exactly the behavior that I would expect from the petulant, self-absorbed, immature, unprofessional, unpatriotic and unpresidential Obama.

I find absolutely nothing surprising about this story.

>>He starts to act very un-Obamalike<<

No, he starts acting very obama-like.

His distaste for our armed forces has been front and center from the beginning. It is impossible to keep that fake “clean negro” (Remember: coined by a liberal LAT columnist) on all the time.

He hates the USA and thus he hates the symbol of our might: the great guys and gals who sacrifice so much to keep us safe and free.

Interesting. The Black Soldiers seem so proud that they are greeting a Black President. And all he can do is heap scorn on them. Very sad.

The few Dims I know are very supportive of our troops. The fringe Dims will be okay with it, though.

Perceptions can be very very wrong. Obama WAS acting Obama-like. Sometimes it takes a magnifying glass for someone to see what everyone else sees easily.

Throw up some of the numerous pictures of him with his feet on the Oval Office desk, or picking his nose or chewing gum during a funeral or official state appointment or him allowing the skateboarder to skateboard through the Oval Office or how about the rappers being allowed to sit around the conference table in the Situation Room or how about the video of him and lardass and their disgusting conversation during the folding of the American Flag- “All this for a f-ing flag”.

I would deign to believe that he was not as ‘Obamalike’ as he normally is. Probably didn’t get the departing ‘good-bye’ from Reggie.

Petulant brat.

The Clean comment came from Joe Biden....a clean and articulate black guy. The LAT columnist came up with "Magic Negro"

Take 2 minutes to watch this comparison between George Bush’s visit to the Marines vs. Obama’s. It is incredible.

I hope everyone takes a look at it.

It was wonderful to see reaction to GWB vs. Zero.

And we’re surprised? NOT. The dislike for this POtuS by military - real military - personnel is palpable. There are any number of perfumed princes that will kiss his ass to get their promotions, but if you see some of the videos of this doper/homo/commie with the troops, their reaction is very strained.

Um, no we can’t. Facts are facts.
But the graphic was funny. Thanks for that. :-)

I watched that clip too.
Perhaps Zero’s nose picking obsession is related to a white powdery substance, and it’s not the stuff on a jelly donut.
