Outrageous! Democratic Rep: Unlike Bush, Obama Cares About the Troops (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | January 12, 2014 | Jim Hoft

Unreal.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) told Face the Nation today Obama cares about the troops – something he didn’t see with President Bush.

“I know the president. I know how he feels about these troops and that’s basically what the secretary said so I’m glad he did that. I’m glad he had second thoughts. And, I cannot say that was the situation always with President Bush.”

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Cummings has obviously never seen this.

I would gladly file the Original Petition for Divorce. Those creeps would want child support and alimony.

Democrats/Progressives/Liberals/Commmunists always say the opposite of what they mean.

Case in point.

I thought it was bad when Carter was president.

In truth it was.

It wasn’t like this though.

This guy is more ignorant than Carter, less willing to listen to loyal citizens, and more willing to listen to terrorist operatives.

He hates our nation and it’s influence on the world.

He aligns himself with people who do their best to destroy what it has stood for since it’s inception.

Obama deserves to have a statue by every city hall in this nation, heralding just how bad the man was at building, and just how good he was at destroying.

You have to discount what ole Elijah says, he has the mental capacity of a Lawn Jockey. The only other “brother” in the House that can give him a run for the money on stupidity is Hank “Guam is gonna capsize” Johnson.

A) President Jimmy Carter was a Naval Academy graduate and served in nuclear submarines and (B) he is an American. The big problem in the Carter administration, beyond the president, was Zbigniew Brzezinski. I never liked him and his replacement in the Reagan era was night-and-day.

They’ve already received about $20 trillion dollars, last I checked.

One of the endearing qualities of a liberal is hatred for the US Armed Forces. Of course this libtard is full of sh*t.

Unthinkable statements such as the one Cummings made often become reality to the deranged idiots on the Left and in Media.

Obama cares about his perpetual campaign for Obama, and about whether or not he is going to have a fag lover to sodomize each night.

I’ll grant you that Carter did serve, and he didn’t hate our nation. He sure didn’t see eye to eye with our Founders though. And the sad thing is, those who might have thought he would be savvy militarily, because of his service, were in for a huge shock.

He was a military idiot. Yes you’re right about Brzezinski, but Carter got us in that mess by appointing him.

I agree about his replacement. Reagan wasn’t always served well by his advisers, but their heads were in the right place even if execution lacked at times.

Oddly enough, I don’t consider this a lie; I honestly believe that he is legitimately stupid enough to believe this. I somehow can’t dislike him in the same way as I dislike Reid, Pelosi, et al.

Really Cummings, you POS !!!! Why don't you try talking to the troops. I doubt they think that Obama cares about them :

SOLDIERS: OBAMA'S RULES OF ENGAGEMENT COSTING U.S. LIVES IN AFGHANISTAN

Rules of engagement limit the actions of U.S. troops and drones in Afghanistan

Or how about talking to the families of the soldiers that were killed in Kunar as a direct result of Obama's ROE - by repeatedly rejecting calls to unleash artillery rounds at attackers dug into the slopes and tree lines, because of possible collateral damage to a nearby village — despite being told repeatedly that they weren’t near the village.

Evidently in his book, Gatesu remarks on how often he would see Bush well up when dealing with the troops. He makes a point of saying that never once did he see Barry exhibit an ounce of emotion.

Could be, could be as B. Hussein Obama DOES like the troops that attacked and killed the Americans in Benghazi.

After 16 months, B. Hussein Obama still hasn’t found any of HIS Benghazi Muslim troops that attacked and murdered OUR Americans in Benghazi.

No one can say that Obama does not protect the Muslim Troops who attacked and killed Americans in Benghazi! He has proven his Muslim loyalty!

Obama’s actions and lack of actions really do speak louder than his words!

Rep. Cummings may have something there about Obama:

Obama loves the Foreign Muslim Troops that attack and kill Americans.

From Pakistan to Syria, the Muslim Foreign Troops that Obama likes so much have never been stronger!

FORWARD!

Rep. Elijah Cummings, a member of The Democratic Socialists of America organization, is correct in his statement.

Obama cares for the troops. He cares that they die, for him, not for everything America, not for the defense of their loved ones, but to die, so that there is one less veteran, who knows what makes Ameica great, and so that veteran cannot stand in Obama’s way!

My wife and I are loners. We have only a few friends and a few relatives in our lives. I simply can’t stand to be around liberals. They just can’t keep their mouths shut. Therefore, I refuse to be anywhere near them. If I happen to be in a place where they start mouthing off, I leave.

IIRC, it was nearly a year and a half after he moved into the WH that Obama made his first trip to Walter Reed.

How many times has he visited there in 5 years? Maybe 4 times.

Oh, please. This reminds me of Orpah's show the day after her loved One was first elected. She had a victory party with a bunch of black actors sitting on stools talking about their joy, which was a legitimate thing, except that he was supposed to be president of all races, but whatever. The point is, actor Forest Whitaker opined, referring to Zero and Michelle as a couple, "At last, we'll get some love back in the White House." My jaw dropped.
