Do they want to meet with him? Having served over 20 years in the Nav., I can honestly attest - the WORST years for me in the military were under Carter and Clinton. Dems "loathe" the military.... and we know it (look at upcoming defense budget cuts on the table). Yeah - they'll be polite, shake hands, etc. But honestly - they'd be happier if GWB was making the visit/presenting the awards. If you've never served, I don't expect you to understand, so please disregard and go on believing these guys have respect for BHO.
