Note to President Obama – our war dead are not props for your fucking photo-ops.
Can you imagine the outcry if Bush would have done this? We hear endlessly about “mission accomplished” and fake turkeys that were, in fact, real – those photo-ops were horrible crimes worthy of denouncement. But Obama brings his paparazzi with him to photograph him giving his best “military” salute with a soldier’s coffin as the prop – and the silence will be deafening.
This man is small, weak, and so self-absorbed that it is scary. Does he even get the fact that these young men and women are dying while he sits in his office, sampling public opinion polls to see what decision he should make of Afstan. Never mind – it’s a rhetorical question. At a time when we need strong leadership, we instead have a PotUS that is a caricature of vanity and banality.
