White House Botches Schwarzkopf Statement
White House Dossier ^ | 12/28/12 | Keith Koffler

Posted on 12/28/2012 9:13:22 AM PST by Nachum

The White House Thursday botched a written statement honoring the 1991 Gulf War hero General Norman Schwarzkopf, having to upgrade it from a “statement by the press secretary” to one by the president.(Snip)While the nation and the Schwarzkopf family were surely gratified to have Jay Carney honor General Schwarzkopf on their behalf, someone in the White House with a decent sense of history – or just a decent sense of propriety – must have belatedly realized that the man who cleared Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait and gave the United States victory in war deserved a mention

He really doesn’t have a clue and frankly, I don’t think he gives a damn. It’s only about HIM!

Do we have any evidence Bronco knew who GNS even WAS before someone told him?

Seriously?

I’m sure we’ll be entertained to find out what circumstance Obama was in during Stormin’ Norman’s career.
It IS about him!

No real surprise here. Unllike the eulogy for Daniel Inouye, Obama simply could not figure out a way to tie Schwarzkopf's life to his own.

Its the islam thing that Obama cherishes. Schwarzkopf was a very effective man and wanted to protect the America we had, pre -obama, thus obama detests the man.

President Super Fly couldn’t care less about anything regarding the good general. He has far more important things to do such as playing another round of golf.

Schwarzkopf and everybody else are just bit players in the life and times of Barak H. Obama.

I don’t really think this stuff is done accidentally.
I think it is probably wrong to call this a “botch”.

Obama is the guy who scratches his cheek with his middle finger while facing his opponent and while he knows the camera is on him.

He sends messages.

I highly doubt it. That pertains to icky war stuff that took place before Obama descended from the heavens to lead us to the promised land of communism.

If you liked the way they handled this Press Release on the death of General Schwarzkopf, you’ll love how they handle your health care.

Does this mean that Mr. Soetoro will finally visit Normandy in June, maybe timing it for a shopping spree in Paris for Michelle and the daughters?

Exactly. He'll mumble some praise-like words to the veterans whose climb up the bluffs at Pointe du Hoc enabled him to go to Harvard. Then Obama will seque onto talking points about how he supports veterans' benefit programs over the protests of the hateful "Nazis" masquerading as Republicans.

I can’t read it. Same as how I can’t look at pictures of the faces of the Conn. victims. Same thing.

I’m sure your summary is perfect.

And anyone who thinks Dark Helmet (that’s our new nickname for “him” after watching Mel Brooks’ “Spaceballs”) flubs anything accidentally is part of the problem.

Happy New Year.

“Obama vs The US Military”

Try: owebama vs. the USA

I can’t believe that this guy was given a second term. It’s insane.

Remember when an abortion doctor was murdered? Obama was out QUICK with a statement. And it didn’t have to be fixed.

Let a real American hero pass, and it is fumble city.

Typical.

I guess it will never happen, but I keep hoping for, and expecting to see this man have an Acts 12 experience. I can’t see where Herod’s performance was any more egregious than The Won’s posturing day after year!

Acts 12:21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
Acts 12:22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
Acts 12:23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
Acts 12:24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.

I think I would prefer to see him have a Damascus Road experience, to go from persecuting Christians to proclaiming the Gospel.
