President O-bow-ma

Barack Hussein Obama, SPOTUS (So-called President of the United States), who bows before Saudi royalty, Nancy Pelosi and Jeremiah Wright, dropped in on our military heroes in Iraq this week.

Some of them might just have entered basic training when O-bow-ma, then a junior Senator from Illinois, said this about their mission 28 months ago, back when it was cool among the liberals to doubt our military’s capabilities:

“We cannot impose a military solution on what has effectively become a civil war. And until we acknowledge that reality, we can send 15,000 more troops, 20,000 more troops, 30,000 more troops. I don’t know any expert on the region, or any military officer that I’ve spoken to, privately, that believes that that is going to make a substantial difference on the situation on the ground.”

But, in the warm afterglow of overwhelming U.S. military success in Iraq fueled by George Bush’s unwavering commitment to victory, O-bow-ma swaggered into Baghdad, the new sheriff, ready to make nice.

Upon arrival he said, “It was wonderful to see the troops out there. I’m so grateful, they put their heart and souls into it.”

(In November 2007, BHO said the “overall strategy is failed because we have not seen any change in behavior among Iraq’s political leaders …”)

Surrounded by the very patriots whose mission he has repeatedly denounced for political gain, B. Hussein on Tuesday gushed, “You have given Iraq the opportunity to stand on its own as a democratic country. That is an extraordinary achievement.”

The 10 men and women to whom O-bow-ma presented Medals of Valor in Iraq deserve a re-do. They should be presented those medals in a proper ceremony, by a decorated U.S. military officer, an individual committed to the defense of America — someone who might accord tacit acknowledgment of, but certainly never would bow before, the King of Saudi Arabia.
