OUR MILITARY IS THE ENEMY NOW
Yesterday Chris Matthews called West Point "the enemy camp" when talking about The Obamunist's speech politicizing the war and laying out his plans to surrender if it gets too difficult.
The only thing surprising is that there haven't been a lot more White House mouth-pieces slipping up and telling us what they really think.
To the new left, the military is the enemy. As America is the enemy. As The Constitution is the enemy. Need I go on?
Yes? Well here's something even better! With the tsunami of evidence of the left's disdain, opposition and out right hatred of the military and all those who serve, The One, brilliantly, spoke about how the Bush administration repeatedly failed to support the troops. You know, unlike he and his minions.
Only problem? It was a blatant lie. Rumsfeld replies:
Even the GERMANS are disgusted with him:
“In his speech to the nation last night, President Obama claimed that ‘Commanders in Afghanistan repeatedly asked for support to deal with the reemergence of the Taliban, but these reinforcements did not arrive.’ Such a bald misstatement, at least as it pertains to the period I served as Secretary of Defense, deserves a response.”
“I am not aware of a single request of that nature between 2001 and 2006. If any such requests occurred, ‘repeated’ or not, the White House should promptly make them public. The President's assertion does a disservice to the truth and, in particular, to the thousands of men and women in uniform who have fought, served and sacrificed in Afghanistan.”
“In the interest of better understanding the President's announcement last night, I suggest that the Congress review the President’s assertion in the forthcoming debate and determine exactly what requests were made, who made them, and where and why in the chain of command they were denied.”
Looks like everybody else thinks it was a big 'ol bullshit sam'ich too.
Never before has a speech by President Barack Obama felt as false as his Tuesday address announcing America’s new strategy for Afghanistan. It seemed like a campaign speech combined with Bush rhetoric — and left both dreamers and realists feeling distraught.
One can hardly blame the West Point leadership. The academy commanders did their best to ensure that Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama’s speech would be well-received.
Just minutes before the president took the stage inside Eisenhower Hall, the gathered cadets were asked to respond “enthusiastically” to the speech. But it didn’t help: The soldiers’ reception was cool.
One didn’t have to be a cadet on Tuesday to feel a bit of nausea upon hearing Obama’s speech. It was the least truthful address that he has ever held. He spoke of responsibility, but almost every sentence smelled of party tactics. He demanded sacrifice, but he was unable to say what it was for exactly.
An additional 30,000 US soldiers are to march into Afghanistan — and then they will march right back out again. America is going to war — and from there it will continue ahead to peace. It was the speech of a Nobel War Prize laureate.
That nutty Obama! Satan must be proud! "Goddamn America"
