Michelle Obama: Average American doesn´t ´know much about the military´
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | 4/23/14 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 04/23/2014 10:20:44 PM PDT by Nachum

First lady Michelle Obama took her campaign to help veterans find jobs to Fort Campbell, Ky.., Wednesday where she said that most Americans don´t know much about the military. Following comments from Jill Biden, the vice president´s wife and Obama´s teammate in helping veterans, she noted that unlike Biden, she had little familiarity with the military prior to campaigning for the White House in 2008. “Unlike Jill, I wasn´t a military mom. I wasn´t a Blue Star family member. I didn´t know much about the military, and I was probably more like the average American,” said Obama.

I don’t think many members of the military stand by the Big O. I’ll be interested to see how many re-up, even if he’s not in office.

Michelle needs to rethink what she is saying. Most people in this country know what is involved in the military. Maybe some kind of light bulb just went off in her head. Or so she thinks.

How could the moo know anything about something she could only aspire to? And of course someone who had no pride in America until it elected a socialist resident would know nothing about America's military, at least nothing good. But to say that the average American doesn't know much about the military just screams out her ignorance.

Extortion 17 and Benghazi ....throwing away Iraq after all that blood and sacrifice , about to throw away AFG ....
At what point does the light go on ?

Pushed off their own golf courses when ‘ le entourage ‘ shows up ? having some of their best weapons systems deactivated ? Having vets benefits slashed ? The end of TriCare? Queers in their billets? Their Bibles banned ?
Their best officers drummed out? A dismally failed foreign policy and the growing perception by our sworn mortal enemies that America is led by pathetically weak leadership and ripe for attack?

at what point ?

That is not correct. The average inner city socialist on welfare does not know much about the military.

The country folks all know about the military and have a ton of military skills that the government has taught us over the years.

How arrogant these two grifters are, Michelle and her husband. Like most liberal thought, they are smarter than we average Americans and we need these two to tell us what to do and what to think. Coming from this Administration whom will not give our service men/women rules of engagement, cut their “food” in Afghanistan, classify returning service and Vets as possible “terrorists”, is nothing short of OUTRAGEOUS.

The military and their families “owe” obozo and the mooch for all that these two traitors have given to them.

My question is when is the military going to “show” how they feel about such good people, such a good pResident...

The big pay back from the military to the obozo’s is due...pls, dear Lord, when will the military respond???

She added that 99 percent of the nation takes the military’s service for granted. “Because when one percent of the country is serving and protecting the freedoms of the other 99 percent, it’s very easy for the other 99 percent to take that for granted.”

I see nothing to fault in that statement. Maybe her eyes have been opened about the sacrifices soldiers and their families make - if so, good for her.

Thanks for reposting this. It needs to be shown every day everywhere in America. When I first saw this it made my blood boil.

Much as I despise Moochelle, she’s right on this one. Americans will give lip service all day long to the “Support the Troops” mantra, but most Americans think the military is otherwise just another occupation. Otherwise, the public, armed with the knowledge and understanding of the uniqueness of the military culture, would’ve raised a major red flag over the repeal of DADT.

“..The Average American doesn´t know much about the military”..........

We know more about our military than we do about our president, that's for damn sure.

MANY, MANY of us served in the various branches of the military and know how it is supposed to work, that is BEFORE odumbo came on board and ruined all aspects of it.

TRICARE LIFE Retired Military over 65 just received this noticed 5 weeks ago, takes effect 4/14/2014!

DOD MANDATE is forcing us to use either Base whose drugs are limited by size of base and is not wheel chair or handicap friendly or Express Scripts MANDATED Tricare Life. starts this month. 4/14/14. Express Scripts is a sorry excuse of a provider. You never know if your order is right, what generic, what manufacture, or what country. All thrown up on your porch for the local thieves and meth makers to steal. Or Neighborhood kids to access.

YOU WILL LOSE YOUR PHARMACY THANKS TO NEW DOD BUDGET MANDATE!

This is a letter it went to ALL drug stores too. ALL MAINTENANCE DRUGS are drugs you take daily! NO WAY AROUND IT, SOME DRUGS, YOU TAKE TO TREAT A CONDITION BUT JUST USE AS NEEDED COME UNDER THIS, JUST BE WARNED ES IS NOT THE BEST ROUTE TO GO. READ THE COMMENTS BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO ALLOW THEM ACCESS TO YOUR BANK OR CREDIT CARD INFO.

BECAUSE OF FED MAIL LAWS NARCOTICS CAN’T BE MAILED. I’d suggest Base use if at all possible. COUNT your pills too. Make SURE YOUR DAW is DAW, ES over rides doctor’s orders. Even if you use base dispensary CHECK before accepting, IF you must have a DAW drug.

1 Transfer your medication from a retail pharmacy to safe, convenient Tricare Home Delivery and pay less out of pocket! A typical cost for a 90 day retail supply is $51 but only $13 for Home Delivery.

2 Ask your doctor about using a low cost generic that is not among the medications included in the Pilot Generics can still be filled at retail for $5

3 Transfer maintenance medications under the Pilot from retail pharmacy to a military pharmacy. Call your local military pharmacy to see if they have you medication

4 Continue to get you selected maintenance medications at a retail and pay 100% of the cost of the medication starting with your third refill.

If you refill your selected maintenance medication’s at a retail pharmacy after March 14, 2014 you’ll get letters from the Tricare Pharmacy contractor Express Scripts, Inc about switching to Home Delivery. Remember, starting with your third fill you will be responsible for 100% of the cost of the medications if you chose to continue to obtain them at a retail pharmacy.

If you have other health insurance with a prescription benefit, you do not fall under the Pilot. There will also be a process to obtain waivers on a case by case basis, due to personal need or hardship, emergency or other special circumstaces-0 such as living in a nursing home. After participating in the Pilot for 1 year you may opt out.

Starting Oct. 1, the Pentagon plans to reduce Tricare Prime service areas to within a 40-mile radius of active or former military installations, forcing 173,000 retirees and their family members to switch to Tricare Standard or seek a waiver if they live within 100 miles of an existing network.

The decision will affect retirees and their dependents in Prime, and those on Tricare Young Adult Prime. That totals 98,771 people in the Tricare South

A large portion of that expense, $55,004.85, was for 30 rooms at the Shelbourne Dublin hotel, which included the $3,300-per-night Princess Grace Suite, where the first lady stayed. An additional $70,855.44 was for hotel rooms at the Westbury Hotel in Dublin.

The entire cost for Michelle Obama and her daughters, including flight and security expenses, is estimated at around $5 million, said Judicial Watch, while the total costs that include the president’s official meeting, were $7,921,636.66.

The people that support Commies like her and her Husband “loathe” (thank you Bill Clinton) the Military.

Nothing the Obama’s say has any meaning. Just words for the Masses to lick up like a Kitten going after a bowl of Milk.

“All this for a damn Flag” was a moment of clarity. Too bad Moochelle’s “Face in a crowd” moment wasn’t properly promoted my the sycophant Media.

Oh no, they dig up an old Clive Bundy “racial” comment, but no expose on the Rulers. The Ministry of Propaganda exists.
