Pathetic: Obama Says Military Fights “On His Behalf”


During the most narcissistic president ever’s Robin Roberts interview on his pandering change on gay marriage, he had this to say (via Weekly Standard and Gateway Pundit)

“…When I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

Despicable. Cluebat for Mr. Obama: they don’t fight on your behalf. They fight on the behalf of the United States, on behalf of their loved ones, their service branch, their unit, their comrades. Elliot Abrams, at the Weekly Standard link above

Most Americans thought they were fighting for the country, not on Barack Obama’s behalf. Slip of the tongue, to be sure, but can one think of another president who’d have made it? They are fighting under his command, under his orders, to be sure, but this particular locution is offensive and solipsistic. Mr. Obama has switched his position on the sanctity of marriage back and forth and has a new one, again, today, revealed when politics made that advisable to him and to his campaign. Whether this is the end or he will “evolve” some more is anyone’s guess.

But let’s leave our soldiers out of this. They aren’t fighting for Mr. Obama and his campaign, and no one sent them out to risk their lives to win same sex “marriage.”

Everyone is a pawn in Obama’s world.
