Give Obama the Medal of Honor!

posted at 12:35 pm on May 1, 2012 by

We are honored to have such a valorous warrior as our Commander in Chief. The bravery, the self sacrifice, the sheer guts he demonstrated last year is without peer in the history of this nation. Lincoln’s steadfastness during the Civil War pales by comparison.

Surely he deserves to be given the Medal of Honor for that act, don’t you think? It’s the highest honor this nation can bestow on a member of the military, and is granted for “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States.”

Well! If that doesn’t describe President Obama, I don’t know who it does describe. So I say, give that man the Medal of Honor!

He can keep it next to his Nobel Prize.

…don’t you think?

No, but if it gets him out of office any sooner, I would go for it. Medal of freedom, maybe?

I wondered if he would give himself a shout out as he was about to award the medal to himself.

I believe the shout-out task would fall to Biden. (Who would also speajk sonorously of the president’s big stick.)

J.E. Dyer on May 1, 2012 at 12:55 PM

He makes a speech as he awards it to himself. Once he’s handed it to himself he makes another speech. Wait, has he not done this yet?

The man, the legend, I suppose to paraphrase Chris Mathews, “The Tingler”. Again, is this late? He conquered Bin Lamadama, the ticker tape reelection campaign has been in full swing for going on 3 years now, where’s his frigg’n medal for cryeye!?

Excellent

As much as I would love to make some stinging jokes about this, and I fully understand the sarcasm – which I like – I just have too much respect for the real MOH recipients to be able to joke about such a disgrace.

Well he is the most smartest, bravest, superdupereist, bestist, most brilliant human being to breath air evah!

A video of the awards ceremony and of him pinning it on himself would make a great campaign spot, dontcha think?

Dear Leader could read the citation describing his heroic acts and awarding the medal to himself. Then Dear Leaser could pin it on himself. And then he could give his acceptance speech thanking himself for all of the selfless effort he made. That would be just awesome. The adoring crowds would swoon and the grateful tears of a nation would flow.

I was thinking more along the lines of “Animal Hero First Class” and “Animal Hero Second Class”….those would be more appropriate I think…

Obama is so dreamy.

The ceremony can be followed by a reception featuring champagne and golden retriver tartare.

SPEAK LOUDLY AND CARRY A BIG STICK

Marcola on May 1, 2012 at 7:41 PM

The minute it was announced that Obraggart was to receive the Medal of Honor, every previous true and authentic recipient of the honor would immediately return theirs.

stukinIL4now on May 1, 2012 at 8:03 PM

This whole topic and thread begs the question:

When SSgt Salvatore Giunta, the first living Marine since Vietnam to win the MOH, received his Medal, his wife and family were placed back in the third row at the White House ceremony while political hacks like Dodd,Frank et al, were seated up front. I wonder if at BO’s ceremony, Michelle Antoinette and their two girls would be shunted to the rear?

Hmmmm

Pecozbill on May 2, 2012 at 8:50 AM

Sal Giunta is an Army sergeant.
Dakota Meyer is the Marine.

Pecozbill on May 2, 2012 at 8:50 AM

But I agree with your primary point.

dentarthurdent on May 2, 2012 at 10:17 AM

The big difference I’ve seen of the MOH recipients I’ve met/seen in person (Sal Giunta, Bud Day, Leo Thorsness) are what incredibly humble and grateful (to be alive) people they are – which on its own disqualifies Obummer for membership in that group. These guys all say things like “I just did what any other guy in my unit would have done, I just happened to be the one in the position to do it.” Sal (and also the others in different words) also said that he would happily give up the MOH and much more to have back the buddies who were lost.

And BTW – they do NOT refer to themselves as MOH winners but MOH recipients – they say they don’t feel like they won anything.

dentarthurdent on May 2, 2012 at 11:25 AM

I am just looking for the military to “have had it” and take action … look at this

That’s a bad link – I would highly recommend people NOT click on it.

dentarthurdent on May 2, 2012 at 12:00 PM

dentarthurdent,
why is it a bad link? It worked, and has some information … is it a lie or what? are you one of usurper’s plants?

When I clicked on it – the page just went into a non-stop scroll of html code – looked like a virus or something cutting loose.

I am curious because of it having USNORTHCOM in the title. I worked for NORAD for many years and helped stand up USNORTHCOM as a support contractor in the headquarters (so I’m an original plank owner – per the Navy tradition).

Raymond ShawBarack Obama is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life.

I didn’t have that problem … I did have that sometimes on my computer, with various sites, and sometimes it took a long time before I finally see something … dunno the cause of that … but if you let this one load up, you will see some interesting info

deafy on May 2, 2012 at 3:12 PM

deafy on May 2, 2012 at 3:12 PM

I tried again and it didn’t scroll – but the text was huge and where I assume there should be photos or something embedded was just a mess of html code in blocks covering a lot of the text – totally unreadable page. I may have to try it from home later.

dentarthurdent on May 2, 2012 at 4:16 PM

Yes, I got the same thing and had to copy and paste each of those urls into the address bar … it is time consuming, if you want to pursue it … but the part where it is not that way, there is enough text to read of what is going on in the military circles … THAT is what excites me! I really pray that they will go for it!

deafy on May 2, 2012 at 5:38 PM

IT guy here. I can confirm the link is safe right now. The container the text is displayed in is in Java. Make sure you have that installed and updated.
