Obama Steps on Fallen Heroes’ Dead Bodies for Personal Gain

August 15, 2011

On November 20, 2009, President Obama flew to Osan Air Base in South Korea to speak to American troops.  As many of the troops took pictures, Obama remarked, “You guys make a pretty good photo op.”

But this was already a pattern for Obama.

When he made a surprise visit to Iraq several months earlier in April 2009, he ensured that everyone who had voted for him was placed up front and given a camera.  The event had to be staged…just so.

Last week, Obama continued that pattern by first telling the press and families of the 30 U.S. Special Operations troops who died in a Chinook transport helicopter trying to rescue their comrades that, when he visited Dover to be present as their caskets come home, he would not allow the press in … and then by reversing himself without telling the families so that the press could take a picture of him in a solemn salute “honoring” the troops. A picture that was immediately distributed nationwide. The opportunity for the opportunist was just too delicious to turn down.

Does this sicken you?  Me too. Can anyone imagine a tearful President George W. Bush swindling fallen troops’ grief-stricken families like this?  Or any other American president?  Me neither.

Obama’s biggest photo op, of course, was the Bin Laden killing, when we were suddenly treated to “war room” photos and inside scoops about his “gutsy call.” (The fact that no nincompoop, even Himself, would have been stupid enough to turn down this prospect didn’t enter at all into the calculation about Obama’s abdominal content quality.) In fact, Obama’s “gutsy call” was a gutless call, especially considering he delayed the mission so he could think about whether to pursue it, then lied about the orders he gave afterward. Anyone surprised?  Didn’t think so.

The observation from GatewayPundit was, “Seems like a very cautious, feckless, indecisive individual delaying and delaying on critical decisions and then attempting to sound heroic when he finally does what he’s being paid to do. That’s our Obama.”
