Obama Disrespects Air Force Academy Graduates
Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, June 5, 2012, 5:45 PM


A family member of an Air Force cadet sent this in to a friend.
Obama Disrespects the Air Force Academy Graduates

Hi All,
I just wanted to pass on a little info in case some of you were not aware of this. Yesterday was the Air force Academy graduation ceremony. My friend from Texas had just arrived and we drove down the road to watch the Thunderbirds air show after the ceremony was finished. Most of you know Pres. Obama spoke at the ceremony and handed out the diploma’s. When this finished it was time for the Thunderbirds to fly. There was one maneuver then they disappeared. A man standing by me called a friend at Peterson Field and found out that the air show was halted because Obama wanted to leave. A helicopter soon appeared and flew around in a circular pattern above where we were – basically doing reconnesance as Obama’s motor-cade was exiting the Air Force Academy. He was going to Denver to do some more campaigning since Colorado is a swing state. After he left the Thunderbirds came back and continued the show for the graduates.

........
Sure enough. It’s true. Obama dissed the Air Force Academy graduates.
This was posted in the Gazette:

The thousands of graduation revelers at the Air Force Academy had to wait a while longer for the F-16 Thunderbirds to show up again after their dramatic initial appearance at Falcon Stadium.

Six Thunderbirds streaked past the cadets as they threw their caps into air early Wednesday afternoon. But the expected air show afterwards had to wait. The presidential motorcade left the academy shortly after the hat toss and the air show took a break as Obama drove down Interstate 25.

The Thunderbirds came back after a half-hour pause, drawing applause from spectators when they made their return – flying by in the diamond and the arrowhead formations.

Yeah, Obama made that call himself, just to stick it to the grads.

Please.

Shutting down the Vietnam Memorial on Memorial Day? Yes - you can blame Obama for that. This is a SS call.

No, he just doesn't care about anyone but himself. Everyone heard about Bush's aircraft carrier gaff, but this is not recieving much press. I wonder why.

It's not about that. He did not do it to make the grads wait, the point is his time is all that matters to him.

You are right, I agree. He did nothing of the sort.

He never intended to stop the air show:

He is just a clueless fucking bastard that thinks of nothing but himself.

I doubt it was actually Barry who made the decision. More than likely it was a member of his staff who decided he was not on schedule etc. Clearly, not well thought out on Barry's behalf.

It sucks that the family and friends of the USAF Graduates did not get to see the full airshow.

no, he wakes up every morning, and wonders how he can f*** up this country.


he doesn't give a damn about anybody except himself, and power.

you want to see other examples? look at all the times he has flown into los angeles, for fundraisers.

around, and during, rush hour.

closing part of the air space flying in and out of LAX, and over LA,

caused surface street closures for miles traveling to fund raiser's homes.


yep, he didn't order this.... it just happened..... it's not his fault, right?

right.

Because the HMFIC can't tell his people to wait 10 mins? I'm pretty sure the HMFIC tells OTHER people WHEN he wants to leave, if he so wishes.

Obama Shows a Lack of Respect Towards Air Force Academy Graduates.

Just because he's a clueless marxist-wannabe, doesn't mean that we must dispense with proper grammar. Ok, if he pulled out a nine, and squeezed off a bunch or rounds while holding it parallel to the horizon, then sure, we can use the "disrespects" colloquialism. However, all he did was exit stage left....in utter disreard to the consequences of his actions.

I was there.

The lines to be searched by the Secret Service were 45 minutes long. You should have seen the piles of things they confiscated.

What really got me were the speeches. First a bunch of Generals campaigned for promotions by kissing Obama's ass. Then Obama campaigned for reelection by telling us how much the economy has improved and how much more the world loves us since he took office.

Then they kept everyone locked in Falcon stadium until the motorcade left AND until the Thunderbirds were done.

I'm sorry but if I'm the President and speaking at the USAFA graduation, I'm going to be sure to stick around to watch the Thunderbirds and not put them all on hold while I leave. The planning to the Nth degree can occur to make that happen.

Hypothetical:

You're in the audience for the President's campaign. Could be Obama or any other President, doesn't matter. What's more likely to get you to vote for him:

1) Sorry, the President is running a bit late because he's attending graduation at the USAFA and fulfilling his duties as Commander-in-Chief.
2) Hey, here's the President, everybody! Yaaaaay! He came here special, just for you! Your votes matter more to him than the people he's taken an oath to lead and serve!

I mean, crazy fuckin' idea...

Please.

Shutting down the Vietnam Memorial on Memorial Day? Yes - you can blame Obama for that. This is a SS call.


Actually you can blame him for that. When the President wants to leave a function early, the SS makes it happen. Sure it was the SS that shut down the airshow and Obama probably did not tell them to do so, but the fact that he decided to leave early still caused the issue and thus it is his responsability and demonstrates a total lack of regard for others. A good person would understand the inconveniences his presence makes for others and make allowances. Remember, he is still a public servant, not royalty.

Our previous President probably would have stayed through the whole graduation, air show and all.

2) Hey, here's the President, everybody! Yaaaaay! He came here special, just for you! Your votes matter more to him than the people he's taken an oath to lead and serve!

I mean, crazy fuckin' idea...


Get both. The graduation was planned out a year in advance. THe movement could have been timed and the campaign stop could have been scheduled so that both groups were given the proper courtesy.

Nothing happens that the Annointed One wishes to happen.


Yeah, he woke up and thought that morning "I want to really fuck over those grads, halt the fly over!"

Your tin foil is wrapped too tight.


You are right, I agree. He did nothing of the sort.

He never intended to stop the air show:

He is just a clueless fucking bastard that thinks of nothing but himself.


Exactly. Fuck everyone else at the event I attended, I have places to be. Has any other President done this. Is it normal to halt the events and roll on? I guess not or they wouldn't schedule the event that way.
