Breaking news: Members of the military: you dont fight for freedom, the Constitution, or your country!!

Whoops.

But Mr. Obama actually did bare his soul unintentionally today (perhaps the Biden disease is catching) with his astonishing characterization of American fighting men and women, whom he referred to as “those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf.” Really?  

Most Americans thought they were fighting for the country, not on Barack Obama’s behalf.  Slip of the tongue, to be sure, but can one think of another president who’d have made it?  They are fighting under his command, under his orders, to be sure, but this particular locution is offensive and solipsistic.  Mr. Obama has switched his position on the sanctity of marriage back and forth and has a new one, again, today, revealed when politics made that advisable to him and to his campaign.  Whether this is the end or he will “evolve” some more is anyone’s guess.

But let’s leave our soldiers out of this. They aren’t fighting for Mr. Obama and his campaign, and no one sent them out to risk their lives to win same sex “marriage.”



Dear Father, whom we love!!

Dear Father, for whom we fight!!

Да здравствует товарищ Обама!!
                           --Long live Comrade Obama!!

Да здравствует великий американский родины, для которых борьба и жертвы!!
                             --Long live the great American Homeland for which you fight and sacrifice!!

Obama's Presidential inaugural oath:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States

-----------------------------------------------
"Best of my ability..."-- Not so great, huh...Well, it is a living constitution, after all...

IMHO, that oath of allegience needs to be changed in the future to take out the wiggle room implied in "best of my ablility".

  1. I watched Obama's inauguration on TV and watched him stumble over those words. He could not even coherently utter the words of his oath. Later he had to repeat his oath in private.

  2. I'm glad Anon. remembers that. Do you remember that the Bible was not used in swearing in, take 2?
