    So after the Afghanistan speech the other night Barry went to Ft. Drum in NY the next day for a photo op with some of the troops. And had the following to say:

    "First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously."

    And as you can imagine the old silver tongued one delivered his message in a very presidential manner, as one would expect from such a gifted orator.

    Only one slight problem. Unfortunately, Jared Monti was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 21, 2006, and was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously on September 17, 2009 when Barry gave his parents a framed medal during a ceremony at the White House.

    Not much media coverage though of what was a very embarrassing presidential moment. Much as it would have been if Bush had committed such an egregious screw up, huh?

    Ok when stuff like this happens I can't help but ask . . . who the hell does he have working for him? That he didn't specifically remember the soldier had received the MoH posthumously . . .ok I can see that. But seriously, doesn't he have a staff that you know, checks things out first?

    This is a mistake that should never happen.If this were Bush there would have been no end to the lefts coverage about what a dumb ass Bush was...another example of the liberal controlled media not one mention of it.

    Absolute Fact.

    But you are Dealing with People who for 8 Years Hounded (43) over the Wars in Afghanistan and more Specifically the War in Iraq...

    Their Boy gets in and starts one with Libya without even Chatting with the Congress, AFTER Running AGAINST these kinds of Wars, and they can't wait to Excuse him...

    These are not Honest People...

    And they can NOT be Trusted with Power.

    :)

    peace...

    At least he didn't ask a guy that had no legs to stand up and take a bow like Biden did when running for Vice-President. They are both idiots.

    The saddest part of all this is how absolutely sincere Obama sounded while he was bullshitting the troops with false facts and bogus anecdotes. He believed the words he was reading, well, at least for that moment he did. Remember folks, it's not a lie if you believe it.
    The best liar wins.
