Obama snubs US soldiers again It seems he is afraid of our troops

Posted by avideditor on August 12, 2008

More evidence of Obama’s hatred of the troops, and his love for the jihadis and others that want to destory this great country. 

From the weekly standard blog

Calling their convention “America’s Townhall” takes a lot of chutzpah given Barack Obama refused to do a series of townhalls with McCain. But not as much as declining to do a townhall with U.S. soldiers because of a “previously scheduled commitment” and then jetting off to Hawaii for a vacation.

Last month, Obama refused to do a military townhall for 6,000 veterans, service members, and military families at Fort Hood, Texas. That event would have taken place tonight, but Obama spokesman, Phillip Carter, said at the time Obama couldn’t make it because “we unfortunately had a previously scheduled commitment on the date proposed.” But Obama doesn’t have another event scheduled for this evening — he’s busy bodyboarding in Hawaii.

Let’s get this straight: When Obama visits Europe, he’d rather address German hipsters than soldiers who were injured while fighting in Iraq. And now that he’s back in America, he’d rather vacation in Hawaii than answer questions that our soldiers and their families have for him. Is there anything that would convince the self-proclaimed presumptive president that he’ll have to address this country’s military before he’ll be ready to lead?

    Barack Obama’s priorities are clearly delineated. He will respond at his convenience, not America’s.
