The Lengths Obama Had To Go To Get A Photographed Hug From Soldiers

The troops are considerably more popular than the media, either political party, Congress, or our deified President with feet of clay who’s working tirelessly to ruin everything good about America. That’s why having the troops like you is quite a big deal for a politician.

Unfortunately for Obama, the troops tend to lean to the Right and they’re understandably a bit less than enamored with a politician who once famously said that our soldiers were “just air-raiding villages and killing civilians” in Afghanistan.

That’s why more than a few people took note of the fact that the rapturous welcome George Bush was given by our troops was not repeated when they got an opportunity to be around Obama,

However, later on, Obama did get a warm welcome from the troops,

Obama and the troops

So, had our soldiers forgotten Obama’s slur against them? Did they start to buy into the Left’s politically motivated, “we support the troops” shtick that they launched into inbetween trashing the troops as baby killers, torturers, and unstable psychopaths?

No, turns out it was all staged to give the false impression that our military is behind Obama,

“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.”

How pathetic is it that Obama has to go to these lengths to try to give the false impression that our military actually loves and respects him? Even George “25% approval rating” Bush didn’t have to resort to this kind of fakery to get cheers from the troops. Even the soldiers who didn’t like him could at least respect him as Commander-In-Chief. The same apparently can’t be said of Obama.
