Here is something very unsurprising; the Marines aren't too fond of The Lord Savior Obama. While Obama was in Hawaii kicking it old school at his $25M oceanfront mansion - while you know, thinking up ways to help us 'po middle class folk - he decided to make a PR appearance at a Marine Base.
This is the reception he got:
As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up.
The absent fanfare is the fanfare that Bush could count on at any appearance he made. Whatever faults Bush had - and he had many - I don't think any sane person could say he didn't respect the military. You could argue about the Iraq war's merits, but again, no sane person will say Bush hates the military.
On the other hand Obama has made it clear on numerous occasions over decades what he thinks of the military.
And as usual for Obama, actions speak loudest.
The president-elect spent about an hour with the troops. Obama transition aides say that Obama did not eat with the uniformed men and women -- he ate at his beach home with his family and friends Christmas night.
Wow, a whole hour break from his Hawaii beach vacation to mingle with the masses. What a hero. And seriously, you expect Sir Barry to dine with uniformed men and women? Ugh. That would mean the possibility of touching one of them and catching some sort of disease. No, no, no. Much safer to eat dinner in the friendly confines of the $25M beach house with leftists like Bill Ayres who blows up military installations.
What a piece of filth this man is.
