It’s been more than two months since General McChrystal sent President Obama his request for more troops. More than two months since McChrystal told the President we will likely lose the war without additional manpower. In those two months, President Obama has failed to give US combat troops the support they are due. And today, to add insult to injury, he exploited those soldiers he has helped kill by posing for a photo op as their bodies were being offloaded at Dover Air Force Base.
Obama made use of his fawning admirers in the mainstream press to represent his reprehensible appearance as an effort to “honor the fallen.” General McChrystal, his troops in Afghanistan, and veterans understand the greatest way the Commander-In-Chief could honor these men and women would be to stop playing politics with the war effort and give them the support that just might save their lives!
After all, this is the war he said we must win. This is the war even he and his liberal cohorts said they supported. But now the deaths of American service members seem of less import to this President than his inability to sway Fox News to follow the lead of their competitors in painting Obama as some sort of flawless Savior. He trots across the country and the globe with barely a whisper of their sacrifices.
Until he sees an opportunity to exploit their deaths for political gain, using their bodies as props to bolster his political image.
After two months of ignoring the struggles of our brave men and women in Afghanistan, after refusing to acknowledge or attempt to mediate the difficulties they face, our Dear Leader is using the bodies of those whose lives he sacrificed to bolster his political image.
This man has no shame!
