Obama Admits He Uses Our Troops for Photo Ops

We all instinctively knew it;  the only reason Obama pays any attention to the military is for the great photo op it provides him!


Washington Post

[...]

Obama arrived on the base 3:19 p.m. local time (1 a.m. Eastern Standard Time), and received a rousing welcome from 1,500 troops in camouflage uniforms, many holding cameras or pointing cell phones to snap pictures.

You guys make a pretty good photo op,” the president said.

Standing on a riser wearing a blue suit and red tie, with a cluster of troops and a large American flag behind him, Obama expressed “the gratitude of the American public” and said his meetings in four countries over eight days in Asia will help deliver a “safer more prosperous world for all of us.”

He got a huge cheer when he told them he was increasing military pay. “That’s what you call an applause line,” he said, before boarding his jet and taking off at 4:11 p.m.

Presumably, because they make a pretty good photo op…

    I’m not sure if I like the counter telling us when the Great One will be gone- over 1100 days of this kind of BS is a really depressing thought. Scary thing is that it might be double that (at least) if he gets annointed for another term.

    But I suppose it’s nice to see that he has some use for the military-if not for the photo ops he’d probably move to abolish the military altogether.

    he intends to do so and replace it with his personal police every bit as strong and funded or however he put it…. so that it would be under his complete control..
