Obama Tells US Troops at Korean DMZ: 'You Guys Are At Freedom's Frontier'

SEOUL -- President Barack Obama was greeted with cheers from U.S. troops as he visited the dining hall at Camp Bonifas at the start of his tour of the Demilitarized Zone on the Korean peninsula and told them that they were protecting "freedom's frontier."
Obama talked about how proud he was of the troops and joked about the NCAA basketball tournament. While, the president has visited the Republic of Korea twice before, this was his first time observing the 38th parallel and members of North Koreas military.
At Camp Bonifas, Obama told U.S. troops that they are part of a "long line" of soldiers who have enabled South Korea to prosper. "You guys are at freedom's frontier," he said. Advertise | AdChoices
While at the DMZ, the president spoke to South Korean troops, then went to Observation Post Ouellette, the closest post overlooking the demarcation line on the most heavily guarded border in the world. The observation post is about 25 miles northwest of Seoul inside the DMZ and just 100 yards from demarcation line. The North Korean army is visible from this observation post and it was expected that the North Koreans would jam cell phone signals while the president was visiting the area.

In other words, “You guys are in my way.”
They're men, obama.
Did you see the pic in the URL? It’s so damn odd almost like Dukakis riding in a tank.
You guys is racist I thought. Of course, to Zero, the freedom is on the north side of the DMZ... the freedom of government to do as it pleases.
Freedom? What does this jackanapes know of Freedom?
Agenda 21 Language?
Freedoms Frontier National Heritage Area
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obama is going to surrender and finally end the Korean War.
When he pulls all of our troops out of Germany and Japan he will have finally won WWII just like he won the Iraq war.
What a jive turkey.
They are his TROOPS and he is their COMMANDER but you wouldn’t know it from this street hustler turned pompous ass.
It’s “you people”.
Was that megaphone pointed to the north or to the south?
He’s trying to say: they “punch above their weight”.
Funny you mention Dukakis in the tank. I didn’t see the pic yet, but Dukakis was the thing that immediately popped in my mind when I read “U.S. President Barack Obama looks through binoculars.”
My thoughts exactly.
What a traitorous knucklehead. Anyone should be able to defeat him IF they’d stay calm enough to keep throwing the focus on BHO and not get rattled or distracted into being on the defensive. But Newt is the only one I see as being capable of that.
Wow, Zero is at the DMZ and the Norks are getting ready to launch a “satellite.” Wonder if Zero is having any secret meetings while he’s there.

Of course this doesn’t mean you guys will be getting your absentee ballots in on time this election year.
It is as if two equal, parallel universes are merging right there on the DMZ.
Just as in the Democratic Republic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), a little dictator steeped in doctrinaire socialism, in way over his head, takes on the spot guidance inspection tours, pointing at people and things and giving the impression of directing orders, the military officers staff are used as props (thinking to themselves "We have to put up with THIS sh*t!?") and have to force Potemkin Village-smiles, and when the inspection area is cleared of the "VIP" and his toadies, back in their barracks they whisper about what a POMPOUS, IGNORANT ASSHAT they just had to receive as a staged-prop visitor who could care less about them.
What the “one” meant is that the Norks are looking for freedom and the U.S. soldiers, in his mind, are to keep them from finding it. Obama’s idea of freedom is having govt. control every aspect of your life thereby freeing you from thinking.
I bet he is sooooooooo excited. He can wear that “”commander in chief” patch on his jacket. Do they let him use a decoder ring while there?
And the meal doesn't look to shabby neither. To have been there that day!! ;-)
I think it's so he can remember who HE is. He is just that stupid.
How nice of him to honor the mourning period for one of his mentors....
