guess who!!! his last name starts with O and rhymes with bama. a turd as predicted. i like how the media said hes here for the troops yet he didnt want to talk to any of us and when they tried to take a picture with the Marines that escorted him thru the city, he was whining saying "ok ok i think one should be good enough."

of course the news will say how he was here supporting us and all that hoop lah.

i cant believe i just said hoop lah.


ETA: yaaaa my computer decided to post this twice.

He was probably frightened of being over there.

I think that hoopla is one word and yes, he is a douche.

What was the talk like though with your buddies. Are most of them against him or did you here some who were actually excited that he was there.

Was anyone there happy to see him? Did he just walk by or speak with Generals or anything like that?
Link Posted: 7/22/2008 11:14:56 AM EDT
What an assclown.


Link Posted: 7/22/2008 11:15:15 AM EDT
How well is he being received by the troops in your outfit? I imagine most probably aren't overly fond of him.

Did he try to take your small arms and disarm you?
Link Posted: 7/22/2008 11:27:05 AM EDT
hate to hear that, but yeah I figured he wasn't there for the troops, only there to further himself.
Link Posted: 7/22/2008 11:28:41 AM EDT
obviously this isn't true. the news showed us Obama yesterday being applauded by all the troops and then he made a 3 pointer in front of them as they cheered him on. the troops support obama, duh!

He's not in any danger, Muqtada al-Sadr has probably made sure Obama will be safe in Iraq

Being an apostate, I'm suprised one of the locals didn't try to seperate his head from the rest of his body.

I wouldn't worry about opsec. It is pretty well covered.

I remember back when Clinton was CIC...He stopped at Naval Base Norfolk (1995 IIRC) for a visit...we were briefed that regardless of our opinion of him we weren't allowed to "Boo" him because his is the CIC (Respect the rank not the individual).


Did the troops in Iraq get a similar briefing?
Link Posted: 7/22/2008 12:11:38 PM EDT
Ramadi?

Did they make him fill sand bags to get into the chowhall?

I bet Ramadi doesn't do that anymore.

You give him too much credit to recognize that he walks on ground protected by America's Finest.

He shoulda had to pay to have his picture taken with YOU!

I hope they didn't because he isn't CIC yet.

I've been in on bullshit like that a bunch. The forst time was LBJ in Berlin. Then McNamara in SE/Asia, then Carter in Korea. I actually had to restrain a guy to keep him from taking a pot shot at McNamara's helo. The press will report what they want, you won't have any say.

The sad thing with all of them is that the Martinets and Bootlickers will come out of the officer ranks no matter what.

I'm pretty sure UCMJ or rules/regs covers showing proper respect to elected officials. Like a Senator.IIRC, Booing would get you in deep shit.

We escorted ex-Senator Chuck Robb when he came to Camp Fallujah. We had a lot of briefings because it was a delicate situation.
