Generally proud? Generally? That’s something you say about your 23 year old who’s living in the basement who can’t leave the basement because his ankle bracelet will start beeping on account of his three DUI’s and missed paternity payments to two different lady friends.
It’s not how the President of the United States, the Commander in freakin’ Chief, should be talking about the men and women in the U.S. military who are sacrificing everything for the cause of freedom.
Fox News reports:
President Barack Obama is calling the alleged slaying of 16 Afghan civilians by a U.S. soldier “absolutely tragic and heartbreaking” and said that he is still “proud generally” of what U.S. troops have achieved in Afghanistan while working under “enormous strain.”
For me, this is even worse than Bill Clinton’s Vietnam era letter in which he referenced his “loathing the military.” You know why? Because Clinton wrote that when he was a dumb young man. He wasn’t Commander-in-Chief at the time.
It seems to me that faint praise by the Commander-in-Chief is worse than the ramblings of a young man of draftable age who says he hates the military.
