I hope this backfires - like that funeral Clinton attended

I’m pretty sure this the one you’re referring to.

Backfire? This should go over worse than the Paul Wellstone Nuremburg Rally Revival (er, uh, funeral).

btw, Romney, if asked about this, should just say "I'm speechless".

“It’s because of you, they’re dead!!!”

I don't think this administration wants to publish the exact time-line of the Ambassador's demise, because they may find out he was being tortured and violated at the same moment Obama was toasting a Hollywood leftist at a fundraiser.

This show was all about Obama. He had to show how important he is and placed himself as the main event. These people died for him. These people served for him. Obama and his whore (Hillary) are the most disgusting creatures to crawl on their stomachs.

"I really do know better. I just was hoping the poor souls would get the respect they deserve as fallen patriots."

They certainly won't get it from the people who set them up for their death.

Strange photo.

Two pallbearers on left are standing at attention and the two on the right are standing with legs apart and have their hands over their crotches.

AND....

Where are the ubiquitous teleprompters?

The photo in post 71 shows the Marines saluting so they are not carrying the casket there. You cant see the pedestal (it might be a hearse cart) but you can tell the casket is not on the floor.

Oh, OK, I must have mistaken the pedestals for the caskets. Thanks for the help, I thought I was going to lose it.

My local radio station preempted the Rush show to carry this live. They said that the Obama administration had issued a statement that since the military members were working security, not a military action, it was ok to televise.

Obama turned the return of the remains of military members into a campaign ad.

You haven’t seen anything yet! Nov 7th. Blacks will be rioting in every major city in the US. The muslims may well coordinate US strikes at the same time. I expect the white death toll in the US in the thousands. Stock up on food, water and guns. You’re going to need it. Prepare for complete anarchy!

Here is an example of a Dignified Transfer Ceremony:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3FcKov4pDk

The caskets are ‘transfered’ from one mode of transportation to another. They do not take a pit stop on a floor/pedestal or anything.

This is why this is very weird to me. This ceremony was a hybrid of a Dignified Transfer Ceremony and a Memorial Service.

Other presidents have avoided these events in deference to the grieving families receiving back their loved ones.

Not this bunch. It becomes a staged political campaign event that overshadows the sad circumstances and the deceased because of the fanfare and the overdone ceremony as well as the campaign usable speech that will be given. All that is missing is the “heil!” for the National Socialist Democrat Party leadership.

This is parading the corpses for political gain at its worst; the way muslims do it. If I were the families I would tell all three of them to stay the hell away.

It should be a private moment for the families.

FUBO & FAD

I really don’t understand the “unquestioning obey orders” mentality that allowed those Marines to enter into this comic tragic farce in the first place. Makes you wonder what other sort of order they might be willing to obey, especially with a bunch of restless Tea Party types out there.

Or if they could have caught a better break on the timing, they could have had all four caskets up on stage at the DNC convention.

I believe we don’t have a timeline because the President was asleep and nobody woke him up. I wonder who was calling the shots?

My guess is Jarrett since they did nothing but defer to the Libyans while the consulate burned and the ambassador was MIA.

Hillary blames the “Internet video”, not THEIR failed policy of supporting the Muslim brotherhood. WTF, this is a ‘F’ing OUTRAGE.

UN-freaking-believable.

By the way, I checked... ALL of the "alphabet networks" - plus all cable news networks - pre-empted their regular programming for this live event featuring the flag-draped caskets of American heroes.

This outrage *should* backfire, but why do I think that Zero and Hillary will come out of it smelling like roses as usual?

Have you seen any president do this, ever? Did they do it for the troops coming home in caskets? For JFKs body? This is the “ALL ABOUT BARRY SOETORO SHOW”.

Obama is subhuman scum. The families are suffering but time has to be taken so this arrogant POS can have his photo-op.

Well they obviously take a pit stop, once they are ‘home’ with family, and displayed at a memorial service.

The strange thing to me was the interuption of the transport of these bodies ‘home’ for a speech, and brief display for total strangers.

I sincerely hope that family members for each of the dead were able to be present, or this just becomes a very crass stunt.

Because Axlerod focus-grouped it last night to be sure it would - otherwise, he wouldn't have done it. This will play well with the chick vote, which he needs. So, there you go.

Our military men were perfect in their execution of the service. It was a profound, moving service. Clinton did a commendable account of their lives. Hussein was solemn and perfectly acceptable in his remarks.

I know the families will never forget this service for their men.

The gripes and complaints on this thread is not worthy of these fallen men.

Nice campaigning, but.....this “planting the seed” excuse for a President should be with the staff figuring out how to keep the Mideast from going completely stupid. This is amateur hour. “See! We really feel bad.” save your “planting the seed” fake care and concern and quit campaigning and at least try to act like a President and leader.

I agree that this was absolutely focus-grouped (like everything else), but I doubt they thought that it would be this weird. Very creepy.... bad vibes.
