Ryan Douglas’s Facebook post is going viral. Notice that he posted this on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks and it’s themed, “ 14 years ago I had a President.” In the piece Ryan extols the virtues of President George W. Bush for his genuine patriotism and love of America. On the other side of the coin Douglas eviscerates Obama for all the obvious reasons.
There is a fitting companion piece at rallypoint.com, a short video, titled “Different Presidents Different Corps,” it touches the heart and it is really is quite moving to see the welcome these Marines show to their Commander in Chief, affectionately called Dubya. Of course the stark contrast is drawn from an entirely different reception for Obama, quite amusing.
What can’t be amusing to the men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces, is to not be sure of on which side their Commander and Chief stands. Good leaders inspire loyalty. A great leader inspires devotion and respect. You can draw your own conclusions based on the video,” Different Presidents Different Corps.”
It must be difficult to serve under a Commander in Chief that marginalizes the troops at every opportunity and unnecessarily endangers American lives by placing a stranglehold on Rules of Engagement. As reported by WND
In an email to WND, John outlined what he termed “a very few of the most egregious” aspects of Obama’s “attack” on the military over the past five years.
He referred specifically to the Rules of Engagement in combat that were put in place after Obama took office, claiming the changes resulted in very high casualty rates in Afghanistan, including the loss of 17 members of SEAL Team 6 in one incident.
Barack Hussein Obama has never been a friend to the military. Since taking office he has cut defense spending, gutted the leadership, promised to close Guantanamo Bay, and by withdrawing the troops he allowed ISIS to sweep the region that Americans have fought and died for.
The White House also must have deemed it wise to trade five high value Taliban prisoners for Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier that is now pending court martial and rumored by platoon mates to have abandoned his post and deserted. Six American servicemen lost their lives searching for Bergdahl.
The Obama administration left Andrew Tahmooreesi, an American marine that missed his exit and accidentally crossed the border, to rot in a Mexican jail for seven months and never so much as brought up his name while meeting with officials from Mexico. In another case a former marine named Amir Hekmati is held prisoner in Iran and charged with espionage. Even with all the negotiations involved in lifting the sanctions on Iran recently and John Kerry’s concessions at the bargaining table Amir remains a prisoner and Iran gets its nuke.
It isn’t any wonder George W. is missed.
