“Barack Obama was greeted with fleeting applause and extended periods of silence as he offered profuse praise to soldiers and their families during an Aug. 31 speech in Fort Bliss, Texas.
His praise for the soldiers — and for his own national-security policies — won cheers from only a small proportion of the soldiers and families in the cavernous aircraft-hanger.
The audience remains quiet even when the commander-in-chief thanked the soldiers’ families, and cited the 198 deaths of their comrades in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The audience’s reaction was so flat that the president tried twice to elicit a reaction from the crowd.
‘Hey, I hear you,’ he said amid silence.
The selected soldiers who were arrayed behind the president sat quietly throughout the speech.
CNN and MSNBC ended their coverage of the speech before it was half-over….”
“…Hey, I hear you…” No Barack, you do not because you refuse to. You refuse to listen to the voices of anyone but yourself. You refuse to listen the voices those who away from their families, friends and loved ones in service for our country.
You refuse to hear the voices of those who made the ultimate sacrifice or the voices of their families, friends and loved ones and you refuse to listen to the cries of your generals (excluding the yes men) and our veterans.
Even more offensive is that you lead from behind, waste not a night’s sleep on the betrayal of the men and women who serve(d) and most disgusting of all; you selfishly use them for your own personal gain.
Our heroes are not props. They are flesh and blood, men and women, children of God and deserve to be respected, honored, appreciated, loved, prayed for by all and afforded the right to vote and you Barack are no exception; a disgrace yes, a traitor, tyrant, campaigner, liar and opportunist.
“…An anecdote about his meeting with a wounded soldier was met with a tepid response, until he described the soldier’s determination to recover and return to his unit. ‘He’s where every soldier wants to be – back with his unit,’ Obama said, generating applause….”

Regardless of what we thought/think of Bush, he treated the Military with respect.
Perhaps because he was (shhhh, Bless his heart, such a poor example).
However, OUR Military on this video explodes when Bush walks out.
Then Obama walks out:

No need to delete Upaces. You have done an masterful job of laying out the facts which I find HIGHLY commendable and for which I thank you. Of course, there are those who would ignore the facts.
As you witness (and I as I return to my blog 24 hours after this posting), there are those who to distract from the treasonous acts of their messiah attack and hurl false accusations.
Try as they might, facts are stubborn things. This post, your response and the facts STAND.
Daniel, it will only hurt him…everyone KNOWS what all he has done and NOT done for the Military. He will be making a fool of himself.
I LOVE this video. It is very short…this was the beginning of his term and they already knew him. Regardless of how you think of Bush, The Military KNEW he was behind them all the way! Of course, then they meet Obama:
It is a sad day when racist, bigots and extremisits (YES all three still exist and YOu are one of each!)
Obviously you hate having a black man as President. I’ve said this over and over and this is proof that is evident, aside fro the fact that the 2012 elections are coming and you don’t hide your racism anymore!
As excepted I was right again and ALWAYS. Obama-haters ARE racists. We live in sad times when every disrespectful racists, bigots, and extremists in America are falsely called “Patriots” when in fact they are far from it. I didn’t vote for Bush, but I STILL showed him the upmost respect The same can’t be said for the most disrespected President in History, all because Many so-called “Americans” still can’t stand having a black man as President!
No, but the Republicans are traitors for putting their own desire to get Obama out of office above the needs of the country. Instead of helping the President fix the economy, they have intentionally sabotaged it in hopes of blaming Obama. I hope the American public isn’t too stupid to figure what is going on!
I’m truly sorry for All the service men we’ve lost , BUT YOU ARE BEATING THE WRONG ” BUSH ” here , wheres the out cry against the WAR MONGER WHO STARTED THIS WAR
George W Bush ! My President Obama was dug us of the hole the best that he can in the amount time that he has had . Don’t forget how long your precious BUSHES dug the hole we’re in!
My sympathies to the grieving parents, but what a crock of #$%$
This is so much Propaganda #$%$…Obama is The Man for pulling the trigger on Bin Laden regardless of what Right Wing Pundits and mewling Tea Baggers have to say. He made a decision, and if it went wrong, he would have been blasted as being as incompetent as Jimmy Carter (anyone remember “Desert One”?) ….so since it was overwhelmingly successful, he’s not allowed to take any credit for it?
Barack Obama a Narcissist? Not particularly, but who’s to say that all the presidents we ever had weren’t a little conceited? STILL, You have also failed to present anything that at all to prove you claim that he is “a narcissist without values who seeks unlimited power”. The last sentence you have written is entirely and utterly baseless. In fact, there is much evidence to the contrary.
Barack Obama a Marxist? Define a “Marxist”. Socialism and Marxism are 2 different things, but many people don’t seem to know the difference. Socialism = a certain balance in wealth to benefit the good of the people. Marxism = Straight up Communism which is a complete government based distribution of all the wealth in the entire country making just about everyone impoverished except those who are in power. In short, no, he’s not a Marxist.
Barack Obama destroying America? Not any more than Bush destroyed it in his 8 year term. The economy is still a mess, but we’ve seen at least a bit of progress under Obama, but that’s not saying too much. I’ll still give Obama a little bit of credit though.
Barack Obama hate America? No, but I can see how some people might thing that based on the radical church he attended with that preacher who seemed to have a lot of resentment for America.
Barack Obama the worst President in History? Not quite. I still think Bush Jr. deserves that title.
Barack Obama a racist? Seriously? I can’t seem to fathom as to how Obama could even be a racist if he’s mixed with both black and white. That doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. In short, no. That’s complete and utter #$%$ I also think the term “racist” is thrown around in politics too damn much these days IMO.
Barack Obama a failure? after seeing what Bush did in the 8 years before him, and Instead of helping the President fix the economy, they have intentionally sabotaged it in hopes of blaming Obama. I hope the American public isn’t too stupid to figure what is going on!
It’s funny how some people want to equate President Obama to an empty suit or an empty chair, when it is the Republican congressmen/women who are sitting in office, refusing to do their job, refusing to vote on any measures to help their co…
nstitutents, refusing to do ANYTHING until after the elections. And they have been cited as saying such. Also had another Republican member who said their main job was to make sure that President Obama doesn’t get a 2nd term. And yet President Obama is suppose to be the empty suit or empty chair.
. Clint sounded senile or out of touch. Humming and himmining and umming his way through with no clue as to the end game. He needed a script, and the RNC should have pre-approved Clint’s message. Clints bumbling was the low point of the entire convention, speaking of low points, 2016: Obama’s America is is a neoconservative propaganda racist BS film.
Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!
When stung by the truth, projecting, Progressives immediately go into assault mode accusing the right of that which they themselves are guilty.
For the record, Questionman, the author of this blog is a proud unhyphenated American, not a racist, extremist or a bigot. I am also a former Democrat.
There were moments during my slumber when I too espoused tainted realities and propaganda but not as hideous as that which you visit upon the blogs and websites of patriots (yes patriots).
This former liberal and master of how the sport is played, the smears smeared and yes, the race card hurled recognizes the Progressive schema to confound, vilify, discredit and distract in their urgency to subjugate divergent voices and the liberties appended thereto.
Incensed by the aspiration to right the wrongs, expose the lies and sins of a dictator and his motley crew of Marxists while demanding independence from the cancer that plagues our nation, you levy allegations that are by nature scurrilous, slanderous and outrageous against the patriots who dare to speak out.
Therein lies the nature of a Progressive and Questionman, I insist that you respect the author of this blog as well as the patriots who comment here.
Rather than debate you as our paths cross this day and have in the past, my personal choice is, time being of the essence, to dismiss you.
I elect to expend my energy vigorously righting the wrongs, exposing tainted realities, the treasonous and foul acts of a dictator (POTUS44) and collusionists while demanding freedom from the cancer that plagues our nation.
FINALLY, having been away from my laptop for the past 24 hours, I return to find comments from Questionman on a few posts. It is apparent that Questionman either failed to read the statement directly above the section for “comments” or chose to ignore the diktat, which reads:
“PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LEAVE A REPLY. I ONLY ASK THAT YOU ARE RESPECTFUL TO THE AUTHOR OF THIS BLOG AND THOSE WHO COMMENT HERE. IT IS THE INTENT OF INTOLERANT LEFT TO PAINT US IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT BY DISCREDITING AND OPPRESSING ALL VOICES OF OPPOSITION. THERFORE, BE ADVISED THAT RACIST COMMENTS/RANTS WILL BE DELETED AND WHILE I RESPECT FREEDOM OF SPEECH, TROLLS ARE NOT WELCOME HERE.”
In a tone that you will grasp Questionman, check yourself before you wreck yourself or you will be banned from this blog, bro’.
Personally? I think the boy is in dire need to have his meds changed. They are NOT working right.
LMAO. As is the nature of a Progressive.
I am NOT Pro Abortion; however, I had to re-think my decision once I found an article that states that Progressives and Liberals have a DNA marker that causes it.
They are, literally, Mentally Ill.
Doesn’t that make sense!?@
The suicide rate with our Military is higher than those killed in combat. Now that! That says it all. G-d BLESS and KEEP OUR MILITARY.
THOSE ARE “HIS” ACTIONS. Make of them what you will.
No words…JUST HIS ACTIONS.
Actually? You are the racist and you are the one who hates.
Questionnman….I want you to “re-read” the list.
What would you say if a “White President did the same thing.”
Let’s be “objective” here.
Re-read, and put any white man’s name in there you want to….what would you say then?

You ought to see the vitriolic garbage he spewed on my page. It’s hard to take anyone serious when they cannot form a logical, competent thought that isn’t rife with hate filled, ad hominem attacks & expletives uttered every other word. In addition to that, he seriously lacks proper grammar skills. We can thank the commie public education for that! So Questionman..do you sit there at Best Buy on your boss’s computer all day long, or did you get fired already for slacking on the job?
Kim Marie said:
Ahh…Questionman is here spreading his tolerance, peace & love. He’s despicable and ignorant. He fails to see the big picture, yet bitterly clings to his hate mongering and race baiting ways. He’s a sad, miserable little man!
I cannot IMAGINE having that much hate inside one person’s body. It must be a nightmare living in him.
To look at life out of all of that hate?
What a miserable life to live like that.
He is NOT going to do anything you suggested. I have had to work with people like that teaching them their jobs.. They must all sit together, sit down, jot down all of the excuses of why they can’t do their jobs; and WHY IT IS ALL OUR FAULT.
They don’t like taking responsibility for anything they do or things they do.
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
HOWEVER, There are many black people who ARE just as upset as we are and they are backing away from them!
Kim Marie said:
So Questionman..you hurled out your charges of racism without any proof to back up your claims!!! Your accusations are preposterous and equally nauseating! We don’t like Obama’s POLICIES..get that through your thick skull! It is people like YOU who try to turn everything into racism. I bet you see racism in a glass of water! Please open your heart and your mind and look outside of the little box you’ve build around yourself. Step outside of that box once in a while. You will see that there are people in a world of hurt. People want someone in office who has experience and the desire to make things BETTER. In order to recover from an economic disaster, you don’t throw TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS at the problem (down the drain)! Obama wants to be reelected so that he can throw TRILLIONS MORE down the drain! Why in hell would we want this man for president again when he has PROVEN to be a failure?? When has spending more money ever gotten people out of DEBT?? When has borrowing more ever gotten people out of DEBT? You sit there and blame Bush for everything, when in fact the economic downturn started the moment dems pushed for leniency in the mortgage industries, pushing for loans in the name of “Fairness”…and that goes back to Jimmy Carter! That’s what happens when we have countless people with mortgages they should never have been approved for!! They stop making their payments, walk away from their homes…NO BIGGIE TO THEM. The housing crisis is what caused the economic downturn, NOT BUSH! Now if you believe we just want a black man out of office, you are an absolute TOOL!
