Leadership: Lost in his gay marriage flip-flop was the president's claim that our armed forces fight for him, not their country. It was like following his spiking of the football over the Osama bin Laden kill with an end-zone dance.
Few caught the revealing Freudian slip during President Obama's interview with Robin Roberts of ABC News in which he said he no longer considered what he described to evangelist Rick Warren in the election year of 2008 as the "sacred union" of marriage to be just between one man and one woman.
But there it was, from the lips of the man who considers the Navy SEALs as stage props in his re-election bid and whose use of the first person pronoun "I" has set some sort of Guinness Book world record.
"I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors," he said, "who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that 'don't ask, don't tell' is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage."
This arrogant statement is reminiscent of the days of Imperial Rome, when the legions pledged their personal loyalty to the emperor.

Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
“You can bet at least SOME troops swish on Obamas behalf.
The rest fight for our country.”
We are trying to export a post-Christian ideal to the world (not the Founding Fathers view of nations under God), and they aren’t buying it. I think a lot of people in the service would be shocked at what is to be brought into these countries behind the military; they may never know, since we can’t “pacify” them to the point where we can set up the Planned Parenthood clinics and such.
What’s next? Mass formations swearing personal loyalty to the POTUS, a la Hitler?
African dictators think this way.
Remember the leftist “teachers” indoctrinating their young students with songs about Obama ? Very Moaist and disturbing...
