What a Real Commander in Chief looks like…

This was posted on FaceBook and nearly brought me to tears. Bush may have been a lot of things – but insincere sure as Hell wasn’t one of them.

We have fallen so far.

  1. You know, Bush will never be remembered as the best amongst our Presidents, but there is one thing you can say with all certainty ….

    The man loves his country, and our troops.

    And that my friend is good enough for me.

  2. FL, why don’t you just come clean about this whole airplane incident? Since you won’t, I will.
    FL was hungry, see? so he just had to nab that last bag of peanuts! the poor soldier was so hungry too, but didn’t get to eat and so he started to cry. President Bush was a big comfort. FL did offer him free drinks and a night iut at the titty bar. this was most pleasing to that solier. so i suppose all’s well thet ends well…….
    Unfortunately, that soldier was sorely disappointed to discover that FL was one of the dancers……but thhhat’s another story……

  3. So cutting back troops in Afghanistan and Kuwait, and systematically eliminating Al Qaeda without hokey playing cards is “falling?”

    Funny, couldn’t find one picture of George W. Bush at a military funeral. Seems like the least he could do after sending countless Americans to the Middle East on faulty military intelligence.

    • I just love Obama, don’t you?

      So do the Taliban:

      The U.S. military said in a secret report that the Taliban, backed by Pakistan, are set to retake control of Afghanistan after NATO-led forces withdraw, raising the prospect of a major failure of Western policy after a costly war.

      Lieutenant Colonel Jimmie Cummings, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, confirmed the existence of the document, reported on Wednesday by Britain’s Times newspaper and the BBC.

      But he said it was not a strategic study.

      “The classified document in question is a compilation of Taliban detainee opinions,” he said. “It’s not an analysis, nor is it meant to be considered an analysis.”

      Nevertheless, it could be interpreted as a damning assessment of the war, dragging into its 11th year and aimed at blocking a Taliban return to power.

      It could also be seen as an admission of defeat and could reinforce the view of Taliban hardliners that they should not negotiate with the United States and President Hamid Karzai’s unpopular government while in a position of strength.

      The U.S. military report could boost the Taliban’s confidence and make its leaders less willing to make concessions on demands for a ceasefire, and for the insurgency to renounce violence and break ties to al Qaeda.

      • Well, if we weren’t so dependent on their oil and giving them a crapload of money, we could just let them do their own thing. Look what’s happening in Iraq since we left. If this is what those folks want, I say let them have it. Ever wonder why we don’t invade Somalia? No oil? Ding!
