I am eternally grateful I am no longer on active duty. I think I'd rather cut my right arm off rather than salute obama.


You sound like a real winner. Apparently you would rather salute a man whose lies have led to 4000 dead American soldiers. I am guessing your 'active duty' never put you in harm's way or maybe you would have a different opinion. Hey Winner, don't you have a Teaparty board that you would rather post to?

As a vet myself, I don't agree with the lack of a salute, as you are saluting the office not the man, but let's be real here.

BHO has never served a day in his life, and has zero understanding of what the average serviceman or woman has to deal with day to day, much less the combat veterans who have a much larger pile of suck to deal with.

Truth is, until you have served in any capacity at all in the military, you have a limited understanding at best. You can assume all you want, but the poster is entitled to his feelings about having to salute a President who has Zero military experience.

Leave GWB out of it, it gets tired and old when people keep dragging him out to support an argument because BHO has only had 18 months on the job. It belongs to him now, no matter who screwed it up. Get to work fixing it and stop bitching about the last dude. If I used that as an excuse at my job every time I had a problem the last guy caused, I'd be out of a job soon. Much like BHO will be.

Let the bridges I burn light the way. You are special, just like everybody else. Calling an illegal alien an ‘undocumented immigrant’ is like calling a drug dealer an ‘unlicensed pharmacist’

If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand.

Corwin, you are correct. I'd salute the office not the man. I stand corrected. Thank you.

The fact that so many Star Trek fans appreciate President Obama is a testament to their intelligence and progressive nature. Obama is an honest, educated, and hardworking man and shares the ideals of the Star Trek world.
Yes trading freedoms for worthless security, bowing to the wishes of other nations for no other reason than to look good, a new socialistic government that controls every aspect of the citizens life and ruled over by a military pretending to be keepers of peace.

Not a problem, I understand the frustration. As a President BHO is weaker on military issues and experience than GWB and WJC combined. While not a requirement under the Constitution, perhaps it should be. NEC 1127 USN 1983 to 1989.

>So let me get this straight, a former Senator, who did not even complete his first term as a Senator, has zero experience running a business and was a 'community organizer' for ACORN, sat in a church for 20 years with an American hating, racist pastor, who has spent more money than anyone in the history of EARTH and still continues to blame his predecessor 18 months into his term is the BEST President EVER? Wow DammitJim, you need to spend more time researching the history of this country. And if you are only now GLAD to be an American I wonder how old you are? I'm 45 and have been GLAD,PROUD, and HONORED to be an American since I could grasp the concept in grade school, in fact I was so proud I served my country in the USN for 6 years. That does give me 6 years more experience than our current Commander in Chief BTW, but who's counting? Obama will be a one term President. Unless he dumps Biden and runs with Hillary. He makes Jimmy Carter look less horrible every day.
That's right, Obama's election made me very proud to be an American, Oh excuse me, how can pastor Wright be racist when half the people in his church are white ?? Yeah, look it up. Obama has every right to blame George Bush, a President who STOLE an election, didn't do a thing for 8 years that he was in office, giving tax breaks to the rich which elevated the high empmloyment causing the mess we're in now.. I can lose my job, home and I'll NEVER blame Obama, All blame should go to Bush.. That's why Republicans are so nervous, they never wanted Obama to do well that's why they put their hate mob (The Tea Party) out there to SCARE everybody, but I'm so glad it's not working.


I agree with you Jim. GW Bush WAS the president who GOT America INTO this mess, and it is going to take THIS President to get us OUT of it.
