Troops React to President in Iraq

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxN09ReTI0M[/youtube]

 

Not too long ago, both Red County and Cheat Seeking Missiles ran YouTube footage comparing the appearance of President Obama and President Bush before the military, as though the thunderous applause W got from the Troops compared to the crickets President Obama got in a more somber appearance had something to do with support.

So click on the YouTube video above and tell me if the troops in harm’s way in Iraq don’t support this president? 

And the crickets? They paying a visit to Red County and Cheat Seeking Missiles on this trip.

    Slightly off topic (but not really), will this blog be criticizing the Obama DOJ’s recent claim of “sovereign immunity”, claiming that courts do not have the authority to determine if the Bush administration committed war crimes?

    Anyone wanting more info, see Glenn Greenwald’s recent posts.

    Nice video…”Embedding disabled.”

    Everyone knows that the media pulls specific troops for these media events and instructs them what to say. You can watch the movie Jarhead and get an idea. You want to know how they really feel? Look at who the military votes for at election time.

    BK, I believe that the majority of military members voted for OBAMA in 2008. They knew full well that OBAMA would ensure that they would be able to to come home safe to their loved ones and that John McInsane would not.
