Obama is suing OUR Armed Forces

The President of the United States is also the Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces.  It is a position that automatically calls for our Brightest and Best to give the person holding the office the respect that the position is due.

Most of the time, the CIC shows his respect for those who fight and die for our country. In fact, at least one CIC went above and beyond the call of duty.

On November 7, 2009. militarygear.com reported the following:

Former President George W. Bush secretly visited Ft. Hood last night to meet with the victims of the troops affected by the recent massacre at the hands of a Muslim extremist within our ranks.

This is typical for President Bush who worked hard during his presidency not to use the military for political gain, especially when it came to wounded troops and their families. He made many unannounced and unpublicized visited to military bases in and out of the country. He invited military bloggers, myself included, to meet with him one on one without fanfare or media. That’s the way he was and I’m glad to see that he has continued this respect and admiration for our military.

This is from Fox News:

The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News.

The couple was described as “deeply concerned” about military families on Fort Hood after Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly opened fire on soldiers and civilians, killing 13 and wounding 38.

The Bushes, who have a 1,600-acre property known as Prairie Chapel Ranch less than 30 miles from Fort Hood in central Texas, spent between one and two hours visiting the wounded and their families.

The day that the Islamic Terrorist, Major Hassan killed and wounded those members of our Best and Brightest, Obama was less than  what you would expect the CIC to be at the post-Tragedy Press Conference.

NBCChicago.com reported:

At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a “shout-out” to “Dr. Joe Medicine Crow — that Congressional Medal of Honor winner.” Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?

Who , indeed. That was a glimpse into this CIC’s disdain for our Brightest and best.

Obama was just getting started.

On July 22, 2011, the New York Times told us that

President Obama formally certified on Friday that the American military is ready for the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy as Pentagon officials said that nearly two million service members had been trained in preparation for gay men and women serving openly in their ranks.

“As of Sept. 20, service members will no longer be forced to hide who they are in order to serve our country,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. He signed the certification, along with Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about 3:30 p.m. in the Oval Office.

And now, President Obama apparently is deathly afraid that his chickens are coming home to roost on November 6th, 2012, as our Military cast their ballots in our National Election.

Foxnews.com has the story:

The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee have filed a lawsuit to block a new state law allowing men and women in uniform to vote up until the Monday right before an election, while the cutoff on early voting for the rest of the public is three days earlier.

Top Obama campaign officials told Fox News in interviews that the lawsuit in no way tries to restrict the voting rights of military members. All they are trying to do is even the playing field for all voters in Ohio by allowing early voting up until Monday for everyone, including members of the military, because they believe a two-tiered, early-voting process is unfair.

“Along with the DNC and Ohio Democratic Party, this campaign filed a lawsuit to reinstate equal, early-voting rights for all Ohioans — rights the Republican-controlled legislature arbitrarily stripped away this past year,” Jim Messina, Obama’s campaign manager, told supporters in an email.

However, the National Guard Association and other military groups have fired back, saying it’s “offensive” for Democrats to suggest in the lawsuit it’s arbitrary for service members to get special consideration.

Men and women in uniform typically get more time than other voters to send in absentee ballots since they may be serving in an overseas or domestic location that is not close to their home polling station.

“I’m just outraged by this,” Mike DeWine, the Republican state attorney general in Ohio, told Fox News. “I can’t believe the Obama campaign and the state Democratic Party are actually saying there’s no rational basis for a distinction between someone who is in the military voting and someone who is not in the military.”

The stakes in this legal battle are huge because Obama is anxious to keep Ohio’s 18 electoral votes in the Democratic column this November. He has already visited the state nine times this year alone.

Since no Republican has won the White House without carrying the Buckeye State, GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is fighting just as hard and on Friday lashed out at the Democrats’ lawsuit.

“President Obama’s lawsuit claiming it is unconstitutional for Ohio to allow servicemen and women extended early voting privileges during the state’s early voting period is an outrage,” he said Saturday. “I stand with the 15 military groups that are defending the rights of military voters, and if I’m entrusted to be the commander-in-chief, I’ll work to protect the voting rights of our military, not undermine them.”

The Obama campaign responded Saturday by saying, “Mitt Romney and his campaign have completely fabricated a claim that the Obama campaign is trying to restrict military voting in Ohio. In fact, the opposite is true. The Obama campaign filed a lawsuit to make sure every Ohioan, including military members and their families, has early voting rights over the last weekend prior to the election.”

Mr. President, these are the brave men and women who sacrifice life and limb in defense of our country, and YOU’RE SUING THEM?

I’ve been right all along. You truly are our country’s first ANTI-AMERICAN PRESIDENT!

Shameful.

    Barry wouldn’t want us to see what military really thinks of him, now would he?

  2. johnnyalamo Says:

    Does this qualify for a designation as a “domestic enemy”?? If not I can find plenty of other qualifiers………….

  3. backwoods conservative Says:

    Just when I think I can’t get any more disgusted…

  4. Questionman Says:

    What I’m saying is simple. The more you attack President Barack Obama personally, the more compassion he’ll get from voters! They’re already upset about the ways of the economy and Congress stalling on key issues for political gamesmanship. President Barack Obama is a likable person. Maybe to conservatives, he’s the Kenyan, Marxist, communist, racist, Islamic dictator sent directly from the gates of hell to destroy the very livelihood of the United States!

    He inherited a mess. He’s tried on fixing the mess with great opposition from Republicans and even Democrats from conservative states. They’re sitting back waiting on him to fuck up so they get back into power.

    I hear, day in and day out, from Tea Party members and lifelong Libertarians here in AZ that President Obama is a dictator1. Here’s one fact among thousands that proves why he is NOT and why our grand experiment is alive and well.

    http://drangedinaz.wordpress.com/2012/08/05/the-most-aggravated-form-of-tyranny/

    Knowledge is power –
    Since 2005, Ohio has had in person early-voting in the three days prior to the election. This year, however, the Republican legislature in Ohio eliminated early voting during this period, except for members of the military. The Obama lawsuit is attempting to restore voting rights for all Ohioans, not restrict them for the military or any other group.

    Man, you must really hate having a black man in office. The proof is in the pudding you’re a racist like most rieth-wingers! reveal the dark racism of putative “conservatives” and many self identified Republicans. These latter comments often are chilling because they reflect an utter inability on the part of the writer to see the humanity in anyone who isn’t a white heterosexual. And then there are the nutcases like the author of a comment I received yesterday that are obsessed with the lunacy that Barack Obama is out to “destroy America! Obama is no evil man.

    Romney unlike Obama isn’t even Christian! You don’t know a Marxist from a capitalist. Obama is NO Marxist! Really? IF he was Muslim, it would be pretty obvious right now during Ramadan as he would be fasting. You’re fear mongering to close-minded individuals. Anyway…who cares? Separation of church and state! “Obama is a narcissist because he contradicts himself? Name one major philosophical/policy position Mitt Romney holds today that he held 12 years ago. Just one.”

    Are you still promoting this…..misquote?

    Let’s check in with PolitFact, who gives it a “Pants on Fire”. Since you won’t bother to link it, I will expose your lie:

    “President Obama was saying success “is the result of government,” not “hard-working people,” when he said, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

    For nearly two weeks, the Romney and Obama campaign have been arguing about whether President Barack Obama insulted entrepreneurs.

    are they serious at faux news that Obama has spent more than Bush? I seem to remember GW Bush always going on vacation at a moments notice. Im sure he spent untold millions and frankly didnt care as he is a neo-nihilst daddys little silver spoon, ozzy lovin, skull, possible perp to 9/11, oily, weasely, shrugging shoulders, (im the decider/mission accomplished), shrugging shoulders when it looking like economy is about to crash like vampyre from bram stokers.

    then it was expected for Obama to do the bailout and repubs were quaking in fear. well Obama bailed them out. i wouldnt have. we could have crushed the republi-business party right then and there. He has shown his compassion when expected, had to learn a few dirty lessons with congress when they had everyones unemployment extension hostage.

    I think in 08 republican radio was real quiet and there was some blustery talk of “well, he has to pass the bills”, etc., a sneaky angle like its all our problem. if Obama, a democrat, was so bad why didnt his supposed nazi campaign start then and there.

    And why would a traitor keep the bust of Lincoln (A Christian) in his office instead of Churchhill? Churchhill Im sure was funny in his cups but Lincoln should send a clear message. One of sensibility, and a semblance of honor. Why is it not bad for a CEO to gross 26 million and his employees 15k. Im sure ive read of a few gross disparities like these, where welfare picks up half the tab because of greedy corporations. but yet these same ceo’s/gop’ers exhibit no shame after theyve thought oh how they really made that money, off others backs.

    Finally,No, birthers say that they are fakes.
    But they are birther “experts”–who have not proven that they are experts and who certainly have not shown that they are fair and impartial. That’s why no one believes them.
    Did you notice that the Conservative Secretary of State of Arizona, after checking with Hawaii, said that the latest confirmation from Hawaii was evidence that Obama was indeed born in Hawaii, and put him on the ballot.
    Two can play at this game. If you say that Obama’s birth certificates are fakes, I will say that Mitt Romney’s birth certificate is a fake. No one will believe either of us. making wild-eyed accusations that Obama is “anti-American?

    It’s completely official. Conservatives are the Party of racist. This isn’t about saving America, this was NEVER perserving to COnstitution. This was, is, and alsways will be, A triade by them to keep America Republican, Christian, and White.

      I’m going to enjoy watching KJ take you apart.

    • kingsjester Says:

      First, this is my blog, not yours. This is a comment section, not the opportunity to write your own blog. Second, The Democrats controlled Congress from 2007 – 2011, there is no excuse for this economic mess. Obama has done nothing….nothing but make it worse. His Stimulus was a failure, and his other solution, is to attempt to destroy the greatest health care system in the world.

      Finally, a Commander-in Chief DOES NOT FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST HIS OWN TROOPS.

      Be warned, if you attempt to bloviate and over-post, you will be banned. I don’t play.
