Michelle Obama: I had little understanding of military life before the White House
politico44 ^ | 10/9/12 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 10/09/2012 10:52:39 AM PDT by ColdOne

First lady Michelle Obama says that she had no idea of the breadth of sacrifices made by members of the military and their families before entering the White House.

"My connection to military life was pretty tangential," she said in an interview with ABC News set to air Tuesday. "Most Americans like me, they just don't have a clear idea of the sacrifice these men and women and their families make."

~SNIP~

"I won't be satisfied -- nor will my husband -- until every single veteran and military spouse who wants a job has one. All of you deserve nothing less. Nothing less," she told ABC News.

What a bunch of .......! How about keeping them alive in the field first!!! You still have no clue about the fine military men and women and the sacrifices they do. The only reason you are doing this interview is for votes, other wise all we would hear is **crickets** and watching the daily/weekly death toll rise more and more under your MB loving husband.

She still doesn’t. Her husband is protected from all harm in EVERY aspect of his life. He even has people guarding him while he takes a dump.

Meanwhile, our soldiers are forced to take dumps in the brush and having to bury it afterwards. In some of those places its like trying to wipe your but with sandpaper......

A couple of years ago Mommaobama and Mrs Biden had a PSA on AFN where they said Americans "finally" had a way to show their support of military families. Then they directed you to a government website. As if...

The whole lot of them make me sick.

” “I won’t be satisfied — nor will my husband — until every single veteran and military spouse is denied the right to vote
or their vote is either not counted, or is disqualified”

There,.... fixed it.

And what about the sacrifice your team is trying to force on the military to give up their right to vote! They can’t even vote for that SOB you call your husband. Meanwhile you sacrifice nothing.

If this isn’t a damning statement, I don’t know what is.

Where’d she learn about this nation and its sacrifices to survive as a free one? At Field’s and Nordstrom’s?

ALL this???...for a flag???
….Mrs. Obama does not seem to understand the purpose and importance of ceremonies. They reaffirm the bonds of loyalty and fellowship that cement our national unity. Yes, at one level a flag is just a colorful piece of cloth. But it symbolizes much more. It is the emblem of our land and all its ideals. It has been present at every major event of any importance to the country, battles, celebrations, meetings, and the lunar landings. It is a symbol of unity that transcends party, faction and time. It is something uniquely and explicitly American. Men and women have fought and died for it. Our enemies hate us for it and burn it in the streets. All that should mean something. (Wash Times 9-19-11)

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.

I beg to differ, Michelle. Patriotic Americans have a perfectly "clear idea of the sacrifice" involved because they serve, their parents served, their siblings serve, and their children serve. It is not an abstract concept to our fine young men and women in uniform and their families, who also serve as they sit and wait. And because of their sacrifice, ingrates like you have the freedom to open your ignorant yap and go where you please in safety and comfort. And I have the freedom to call you on it.

Signed,

"Most Americans like me, they just don't have a clear idea of the sacrifice these men and women and their families make."

Like her husband, she assumes that if she is ignorant, it must mean everybody is ignorant.

On the other hand, most americans "like her" probably are ignorant. Not most americans, mind you. Just most liberals.

Then why is your dumbass husband doing everything he can to surpress the military vote and screw up absentee military ballots!!!

Well, WE won’t be satisfied until you’re packing your bags!!!

You unapologetic loud-mouthed ignorant race-baiting hater:
* Are you proud of America yet?
* Are you proud of my great-great grandfather and his three brothers who fought in the 8th Ohio Cavalry on the Union side so that 145 years later an affirmative-action candidate would be elected president?
* Are you proud you and your worthless husband haven't been ridden out-of-town on a rail, as you both richly deserved?

The United States of America faced a crisis as one of our Ambassadors was killed. President Obama bravely flew to Las Vegas and hid. He then told his campaign workers that they are as brave and selfless as the Soldiers on patrol in Afghanistan. That isn’t just ignorant, that’s insulting. It demeans every person who has ever been in the Service. Sitting in an air conditioned room in Las Vegas sipping an icy drink is the same as humping a 60 up the mountains in Aghanistan under fire? We have an old military saying for you Mr. Obama......”You’re talkin’ out your ass.”
