The picture shows Obama receiving the medal from his Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, who read the citation and, of course, stated in his commentary that he, Ash Carter, awarded the medal for the President's outstanding leadership in the defense of the country.
Meanwhile, the President during his eight years in office has diminished the Army to the smallest force it has been since the period following World War I, has reduced our ship strength to a woefully inadequate level at a time when our key adversaries are dramatically ramping up military capacity and has turned the Air Force into the primary social experiment under the leadership of a person who has never flown a combat aircraft. We are weak and the world knows it and when America is weak, tyrants the world over push the envelope of danger.
So, come on, America, let's get real. President Obama, the supervisor of the Secretary of Defense, wanted an award for his delusional beliefs that he has made America safer and saw to it that his underling pinned the prestigious DOD DSM award on him. And let's hope that this first time event is the last time this ever happens, for it is just another moment of infamy provided by a narcissist who can't speak a sentence without patting himself on the back and criticizing the nation and the people that he was given the privilege to serve. This was clearly a manufactured event by the President, designed to further demolarize those who work hard to keep America safe. And Ash Carter, the academician turned Defense chief, was undoubtedly more than happy to oblige and in so doing added another moment to the annals of shame of our modern day Defense Department.
Do you wonder what "Mad Dog" was thinking this morning as he heard the news while preparing to repair and rebuild our military? The answer should be very obvious to everyone. God bless America and let's bring our military back to the mission for which it was created: to destroy those persons and things which would destroy us and protect the Land of the Free. It's time to face the real threats we face with a military capable of doing just that, no a shell force that has been stripped of it's capacity. Thankfully, we're only fifteen days away from the start of something big.
