    This was so disrespectful to the men who sacrificed their lives in combat for a President to use the moment to bolster his image because of negative reports of him neglecting the Afghanistan conflict and our soldiers needs. He and the White House are out of touch with the American people and are only concerned with their socialist agenda. Rush was right yesterday when he said Obama was using the dead soldiers return at Dover as a opportunity for a positive photo-op. He was turned down by all families except one who agreed to let him have his picture taken.

    Transcript:
    RUSH: No, I -- no, see, this is -- I know this is going to sound controversial, but I don't think he cares that -- if he -- Chris, if he cared about -- we've got soldiers and their families worrying about what we're going to do. The general on the ground said we need some more troops.

    The policy that he implemented in March he now doesn't like and is trying to figure out how best to make everybody happy here politically on his side of the aisle and also for his image. Democrats have a tendency to be seen as weak on defense, so he's battling with that.

    But again, if he cared about victory -- remember, he said about Afghanistan victory is not something he's comfortable with, the concept. It reminds him of the Japanese surrendering on the USS Missouri. It made him very uncomfortable.

    He wants to manage this rather than achieve victory. He says these things. I don't know if people actually listen and have them register when he does.

    WALLACE: But you say you don't know that he really cares. Do you at least give him credit for going to Dover, Delaware to honor the remains of soldiers, dead soldiers, who came back from Afghanistan?

    RUSH: You know, see, the politically correct thing to say here would be, "Oh, yes, I am very impressed that President Obama decided to go show his concern for the remains, troops who've given their lives for freedom in this country."

    It was a photo op. It was a photo op precisely because he's having big-time trouble on this whole Afghanistan dithering situation. He found one family that would allow photos to be taken. None of the others did.

    And of course, when you have a sycophantic media following you around, able to promote and amplify whatever you want, then he can create the impression that he has all this great concern, but the -- Bush did this...
    WALLACE: Well, no...

    RUSH: ... but no cameras.

    WALLACE: I don't know that he ever went to Dover, Delaware.

    RUSH: No, he went to see the families.

    WALLACE: Yes, he certainly went to see the families.

    RUSH: But he didn't make photo ops out of it. The...

    WALLACE: Well, but the argument would be that it was political of Bush not to be seen with the coffins because he was trying to hide it, hide the cost of war from the American people.

    RUSH: Well, I have the benefit of knowing George Bush a little bit, and I -- I -- I've seen him cry talking about missions that he's ordered. I think he has a great, profound, deep respect for the families of all military personnel, and those who have died...

    WALLACE: But I don't disagree with that...

    RUSH: ... and I -- he's not going to use them.

    WALLACE: But you don't think that Barack Obama has a profound respect for our soldiers and the families that are giving the sacrifice?

    RUSH: Chris, throughout the Iraq war, it was Barack Obama and the Democrat Party which actively sought the defeat of the U.S. military. They convened hearings and accused General Petraeus of lying. They said the surge would not work.

    Harry Reid stands up, waves the white flag -- this war is lost. Jack Murtha is out saying our Marines at Haditha are guilty of rape. John Kerry is accusing our Marines of committing terrorism acts by going into the homes of Iraqis at midnight in the dark terrorizing, looking for Al Qaida or whoever was there.

    Yeah. I mean, look. I hate to be honest with you here, but I do question their commitment to national security. I question their commitment to the U.S. military. They'll put their political survival and their political power being gained over anything else. They'll use anybody and throw anybody away in order to achieve it.

    Cool screenname, bro! :thup:

    A name like that just screems objectivity and demands to be taken seriously.

    Yes, the usual antics of the left, when they can not answer a point being made, DEFLECT. Remind me how you all get all upset when a certain leftoid poster with a Nazi Uniform posts. HUMM?

    Lets ignore the stupid name and focus on the POINT. Obama went to Dover for ONE REASON and one reason only. To get a pretty picture to help with his image as he vacillates on Afghanistan.

    Or perhaps YOU can explain why he went NOW instead of earlier or later?

    Ohh and HURRAH to the families that told him to take a flying leap on getting a picture taken with their dead loved one in a casket.

    Oh, shut the fuck up, you old crank.

    This shit has already been discussed in numerous threads already and I'm not going to take the time to give a serious response to some fuckchop who calls himself David Duke and comes in here whining about the POTUS meeting fallen soldiers returning to Dover.

    FUCK OFF then. Last I checked you fucking dumb ass, you were not one of the ones that posted before me. But thanks for proving my point, YOU are trying to deflect again.

    So tell me why is it you have no shit fits every time Zona posts with his Nazi Uniform as a Guide? Could it be because he is a leftist?

    maybe he should have gotten on aircraft carrier with a big banner that said " Mission Accomplished".
    Presidents do this stuff all the time, get over it.
