Skip to comments.It's ADMIRAL McRaven, Mr President! Obama botches rank of top Navy SEAL

Barack Obama has always been known for his silken words, soaring rhetoric and ability to use language to his advantage.
Lately, however, the president seems to be losing command of the details. In a speech at a fundraiser in New York on Wednesday night, he took aim at Todd Akin, the political punch bag du jour on both sides of the political aisle.
Recently, some of you have been paying attention to the commentary of the Senator of Missouri, Mr Akin, who - the interesting thing here is that this is an individual who sits on the House Committee on Science and Technology, but somehow missed science class.
It's representative of a desire to go backwards instead of forwards, and to fight fights that we thought were settled twenty, thirty years ago.
The problem is, Akin is a congressman who is running for a US Senate seat in Missouri. Senator Claire McAskill, Obamas favourite Senator until a few months ago when she started to distance herself from him in an effort to win re-election, might not particularly appreciate the President having conceded her seat already.

How is Obama supposed to know what corpse the guy is in?
Maybe we ought to get the president a Furby to sit in on JSOC meetings.
Whoever wrote his speech screwed it up and no one caught it before it hit Hussein’s teleprompters.
Hussein can’t have anyone around smarter than him, so these things are bound to happen for him.
I read the first line in this article and that’s it for me. My BS bag is filled for the day.
Obama is not ‘losing command’ of details like the article states. The truth is that Obama can’t be bothered with the details of other people. He is the only thing that matters in his world. He truly is a narcissistic sociopath.
When he ‘crashes’ it will register at least a 10 on the Richter scale.Pray that he is not in any position of authority at the time.
Oh please....during his suprise press conference the other day he called Gen. Martin Dempsey, “Marty Dempsey”, Gen. John Allen, “John Allen”. During Ranger Army Ranger SFC. Leroy Petry’s MOH ceremony he kept calling him Leroy. He didn’t even salute SFC. Salvatore Guinta, he hugged him! He can’t pronounce Corps. and the disgusting thing, can’t even remember the living troops he awarded the MOH to!
He is such a disgrace that he makes me want to puke every time I see his face......but especially when he is in front of our military!!!!
Something is very bad is going down behind the scenes. Too many groups of Special Operations speaking out. They know, they have the clearance and the connections.
They know, they have the clearance and the connections.
I think you are correct. They know better than we do the utter destruction the Soros regime is attempting to bring upon the defense capabilities of this nation.
You nailed it...
Only for people who posses less than a room temperature IQ!!
Sigh. And he always has had a very high likability factor. And he's a good father. Blah blah blah blah.
I also think his brain is probably pretty close to exploding due to the stress of the campaigning, the lying, the pretending, etc... I’m really surprised he hasn’t had a nervous breakdown (that we know of at least).
If he weren’t able to go golfing, and play basketball, and watch sports on TV all the time - instead of actually doing his job - he would’ve been toast already.
Treason attempting to hide behind a veneer of incompetence is my take on it... I shudder to think of what information has gone out “quietly” to our enemies when we hear these kinds of things in the national media.
I wonder, will we ever know the depths of this man’s betrayal? I don’t think the CIA, or the military will be writing a book about it - and yet, I think there will be long-lasting (and hopefully not devastating) effects of Obama & Co.’s treason. I pray he is held accountable, but I will not be holding my breath. I wonder if those with the power are still just trying to wish this away like a bad dream?
Yep... In my entire life I don’t think I’ve EVER heard Special Ops personnel, of any rank, speaking to the media at all.
I don’t blame Obama. Why doesn’t McRaven wear the funny Admirals hat?
