President Barack Obama shakes hands with Medal of Honor recipient Bob Howard, and other recipients, during a wreath laying ceremony to celebrate National Medal of Honor Day, Wednesday, March 25,2009, at the Tomb of The Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va
I’m surprised they shook his hand.
No offense to you for posting this, but when I see him there, in that place, with those men? I don’t think it’s funny. All I feel is this sense of embarassment.
Caption Obama’s next photo op
Me too...there isn’t anything funny about it actually. But still, it doesn’t mean a caption on a serious or what the heck isn’t warranted.
Is this supposed to make up for trying to shaft veterans with service related injuries and illnesses?
They were too honorable not to.
"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' "
From the Chicago Sun Times, November 13, 2008:
Ayers: Obama was 'family friend'
New afterword to 2001 book, Ayers describes Barack Obama as 'family friend'
Well let’s hope a little rubbed off on the unhonorable one.
Politico reported today that he made an “unscheduled stop” as it was not on his agenda
The closest he will ever be to real Honor and Courage!
He should sit down, shut up, and listen to these men! — He might actually learn something worth while — Those are men you can proud of associating with — He was in the presence of real Americans!
Why did each one spit on their hands first? Were they getting ready to play Baseball? Those hands must have been pretty messy, shaking all of them in a row, you know!
Hats off to Our Wonderful Hero’s who WON the Medals of Honor! At least the politician present, TOTUS, has learned to hold his hand over his Heart instead of his Crotch, as much as it may Pain his ego!
ZerO is unworthy to stand with our greatest Americans, God Bless them all and their service
I'll see your embarrassment and raise you outrage.
That is a place of honor - among men of honor - and it's outrageous that this slimy, filthy sham of a man interrupted the honoring of them.
Sorry, I just can’t do it. Not with these Men in the pic.
I’ll caption it
Nothing to mock here. Obama is a jerk. Obama is anti-military. Obama showed up to honor those men and made them obviously very proud.
Credit when credit is due.
Nothing funny to caption at all.
John Finn will be 100 this July. Last MOH survivor from
Pearl Harbor - stood for 2 hours fully exposed on the taxiway at Kanahoe Air station firing 30 and 50 MG. Was
wounded 24 times by bullets and shrapnel
