Obama and the Military, Not A Great Relationship

President Obama is not a favorite among the rank and file members of the military. We instinctively know when someone truly has our best interests at heart. He just can’t seem to get past his disdain of the men and women who defend our freedoms. But what do you expect from a guy who attended Harvard and Columbia, notorious for their hatred of all things military.

Most recently he screwed up a speech when he referred to a Medal of Honor winner while giving a speech to the Army’s 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, New York. The trouble was he mentioned the MOH recipient as if he were still alive. Jared Monti was awarded the MOH posthumously. Couple this with the “corpseman” flub and a picture of a guy who doesn’t really think highly of the honorable choice of defending this nation begins to take shape.
