Obama Insults Two Heroes
"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."
-- Barack Obama
There is only one problem. Obama presented the Medal of Honor to Monti's parents, because Jared Monti died serving our nation. Barack Obama presented another Medal of Honor to Sal Giunta, the living winner. The White House excuse for mixing these two men up? Obama did not have a teleprompter to remind him which of these two great Americans was alive. You know, the one he actually met, rather than the one he claimed he remembered meeting.
Like his 57 states comment, Obama and his aides at the White House just cannot be bothered with really caring about our military forces, any more than Obama can really care about our history. Obama is too important to be bogged down with trite issues like our history and its heroes. Clearly he was just going through the motions in both ceremonies. He is too important to pay attention. Plus, he hates the military. So do his aides.
With this callous display of indifference to two great men, men he is not worthy to stand with, Barack Hussien Obama has dishonored everyone who has ever served our nation.
