Report: Obama only addressed soldiers who “voted for him”

First off, imagine if President Bush had ever pulled such a stunt. To load the room with only soldiers who admitted to voting for him before he addressed them. Well that’s exactly what President Obama did in Iraq.

A sergeant on the ground in Iraq has blown the lid off these staged military photo-ops, via Macsmind:

The visit was communicated a full 24 hours in advance and a small contingent of soldiers – not screaming hoards – were rustled into a meeting place at Camp Victory.

Got this email from a sergeant that was there.

“We were pre-screened, asked by officials “Who voted for Obama?”, and then those who raised their hands were shuffled to the front of the receiving line. They even handed out digital cameras and asked them to hold them up.”

Take a look at the picture at AP and notice all the cameras are the same models? Coincidence? I think not.

Hot Air follows up with comment:

So you’re the president, you’re making a surprise visit to Iraq, and you want to look good. But so far, the troops haven’t really been falling all over themselves whenever you glide into the room. What do you do? How do you shut up those pundits who dare to take note of reality?

How do you make sure a crowd likes you? Screen out anybody who didn’t vote for you. Even if they’re serving their country under your watch.

I think this just speaks to the administration’s fear of an overwhelmingly Republican-leaning military we have. They do not want to have a room full of soldiers, they want a room full of Obama voters who also happen to be soldiers.

Again, had Bush done this we’d still be hearing about the deception of his administration. When Obama does it, it’s fine right?

The feelings the military had toward President Bush were authentic. They didn’t have to pick and choose who to let into a meet and greet with him. Obama is image-obsessed and this is more evidence proving it.

The double standard is getting very, very sickening to watch on a daily basis.

  • Will this man ever come off the campaign trail? When he was elected President (huge mistake) he also became Commander in Chief. He’s suppose to have the men and women in the armed services best interest at heart, I guess he’s just interested in those who voted for him. How in the world do you expect these Soldiers you snubbed to to have any faith in you as a leader? Finding out that Obama choose to have only those who voted for him present during his first troop visit is just ridiculous. No matter how these people voted Obama needs to realize that there lives are in his hands, its no time to play politics.

    It pains me that Obama is not above this, he’s a dirty, dirty politician who does not deserve to be Commander in Chief. I won’t disclose how I personally fell or how I think our troops should have reacted.

    I’m not much concerned with the meet and greet but with any assignment repercussions to the GI’s who didn’t raise there hands.The liberal left wouldn’t have to worry about counting those pesky MILITARY ABSENTEE BALLOTS then!

  • D.D Mao, I hear ya, just look at the chaos up in NY as Tedisco tries to get the military absentees counted. Sigh……..

  • D.D.Mao

    Conservative Gal…….I mean after all he received an extremly FRIGID RECEPTION on the 27th February at Camp Lejeune and he did STAGE A WHITE HOUSE PRESS CONFERENCE at which the liberal MSM was the only ones asking questions.

    The ONLY RESPONSE he got from the Marines was when he said “Semper Fi” which would bring any Marine alive.

    When we have a military of liberals. We will have no military

  • D.D.Mao

    I will write further about this later if I can but I STRONGLY SUGGEST WE ON THE RIGHT READ the report JUST PUT OUT entitled “RIGHTWING EXTREMISM CURRENT ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL CLIMATE FUELING RESURGENCE IN RADICALIZATION AND RECRUITMENT” put out by The Department of Homeland Security.It encompasses abortion,second rights supporters,anti-immigration,Christians,and the military as RIGHT WING EXTREMIST TO WATCH OUT FOR.

    AND IT COMES OUT JUST A WEEK BEFORE THE TEA PARTIES START
    HMMMM WHO COULD IT BE AIMED AT DO YOU THINK?

    Homeland Security document targets most conservatives and libertarians in the country
    by Stephen Gordon

    “Remember that now-retracted Missouri Information Analysis Center report which stated that small-government types (specifically Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin supporters) were potential terrorist threats? According to this new Homeland Security report, all it takes to fit the terrorist profile is to have general anti-government feelings or prefer local/state government to federal control over everything”

    Janet Napolitano blocks Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s funding for immigration enforcement

    ‘Much of the money for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s immigration-enforcement efforts lately has poured out of a special pool of state money.”

    “But New Times has learned that Governor Janet Napolitano’s turning off the spigot.”

    “In what appears to be a prelude to a major fight between Napolitano and Arpaio, the governor issued an executive order last week to develop a new task force–headed up by the state Department of Public Safety–to find and arrest tens of thousands of felons with outstanding warrants.”

    “And, according to a letter from DPS Director Roger Vanderpool to Arpaio outlining the new effort, the task force will be funded with the money that Arpaio isn’t getting anymore…”

    “UPDATE: There are details here, and from this:
    Arpaio said the governor, along with officials in Phoenix and Maricopa County, “conspired to take away … money that the state Legislature and the (county) Board of Supervisors approved specifically to enforce human smuggling laws, money my office needs to fight illegal immigration.”

    “He said Napolitano’s decision to create the felony warrant task force is “a cover-up for taking away grant money to fight illegal immigration,” calling the move “despicable.””

    “According to this new Homeland Security report, all it takes to fit the terrorist profile is to have general anti-government feelings or prefer local/state government to federal control over everything”

    Source has not clearn yet

    This seems illegal to my non-lawyer nose

  • D.D.Mao

    Although the document is “UNCLASSIFIED/FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY” it has a warning that this document is “Law Enforcement Sensitive” and “……no portion of this information should be released to the media,the general public,or over a non-secure internet server”and is “exempt from the Freedom of Information Act”.As I said earlier it just about covers everything the Conservative movement stands for and as Sean Hannity said “Conservatives are viewed as a bigger threat than terrorist to the Obama administration.

    I printed a copy for myself before it is taken off the internet as a reminder that CONSERVATISM IS THE ENERMY OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION!

  • D.D.Mao

    Thank you Bill for putting that link to the “Liberty Papers” which in the article you can click on to access the Homeland Security Report.
    I was a bit pressed for time this afternoon.

  • Bill Hedges

    I put in article about Janet Napolitano. Least we forget who she is…

    Little known but mentioned on Fox, a woman nane Rosa ??? was placed in Penagon. A liberal, way out there, who has access to top secret information and expected to be a Obama imformant. Could not find link, must be recent.

    Obama has his “brown shirts”, more accuate, “SS”.

  • Ron

    Leave it to this site to continualy slant every news piece in a conservative manner. Why should anyone care which soldiers were asked to join the President. Bush DID do the same thing at virtually every single town hall he ever held. Why not do an educated piece on why our soldiers are even in Iraq to begin with…oh that’s right..becasue of BUSH.

    Let me start my stopwatch… how long will it take before this post is removed from this site.

    LONG LIVE FREE SPEECH!**
