Pres. Obama: Troops "Fighting On My Behalf"

President Obama's newly found, evolved conviction that marriage should be redefined, has dominated the news and will continue to do so for weeks to come.

However, buried in the ABC interview last week that revealed his new belief, was an equally troubling revelation about how he views his relationship to the United States military.

Explaining how his belief on marriage has evolved, and congratulating himself for all he has done to advance the homosexual agenda including abolishing the "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy, he tipped his hand on how he really sees his relationship to the military of the United States of America.

In his self congratulatory outing, he made the astonishing characterization of the troops, whom he referred to as, "Those Soldiers or Airmen or Marines or Sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf."

On my behalf?

For sure the President is the Commander in Chief, but do our troops fight on his behalf? Most of them I know think they are fighting for their country and for freedom.

I caught the phrase, buried in the words. ABC either didn't hear it or chose not to disturb the King with a question about it during his proclamation.

Elliot Abrams didn't miss it and didn't ignore the words. He wrote an excellent article about it.

When the Navy Seals killed Osama bin Laden, the President----any President, should have gotten some credit.

George Landrith at the "Daily Caller" observed, at the time, that the President's speech following the killing of bin Laden, "Was self absorbed, misleading and marks the beginning of his effort to rehabilitate his leadership image for the 2012 campaign."

He points out that the President used the words, "I", "me", and "my", a combined 13 times in a 1300 word speech.

Self absorbed.


Elliot Abrams, agrees and concludes:

"Most Americans thought they were fighting for the country, not on Barack Obama’s behalf. Slip of the tongue, to be sure, but can one think of another president who’d have made it? They are fighting under his command, under his orders, to be sure, but this particular locution is offensive and solipsistic. Mr. Obama has switched his position on the sanctity of marriage back and forth and has a new one, again, today, revealed when politics made that advisable to him and to his campaign. Whether this is the end or he will 'evolve' some more is anyone’s guess."

"But let’s leave our soldiers out of this. They aren’t fighting for Mr. Obama and his campaign, and no one sent them out to risk their lives to win same sex “marriage.”

Well said.

These are perilous times. Faith is being challenged. Freedom is being challenged. Thank you for standing with us as we stand together for Judeo- Christian values.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.


  1. Seriously? The first Army oath made what the president said clear:

    "I, _____ do solemnly swear or affirm (as the case may be) to bear true allegiance to the United States of America, and to serve them honestly and faithfully, against all their enemies or opposers whatsoever, and to observe and obey the orders of the President of the United States of America, and the orders of the officers appointed over me." "

    I think what you are missing is the President is the first one in a decade that will own his decisions.

    The military serves under the President, we are s

    1. As someone who serve in the Army for over 23 years I have taken this oath numerous times. When you take the oath, you obey the orders of your officers appointed over you which includes the President of the US States of America. But you do not fight for any of them, but only for your country. This is a constitutional republic and not a military dictatorship.

  2. President Obama's self absorbed narcissism aside I took the comment about fighting for me as an acknowledgement that he, like other citizens are protected by the military. Are we over analyzing..??

  3. Sorry, but the problem is much deeper than narcissism. Obama and his gang are the gravest threats to our national security in our nation's history. Obama was raised and mentored by radical Muslims and communists, so what makes anyone think he will act differently than what he is doing? Removing him and his kind from our government is one of the reasons I'm running for Congress. I urgently request you read my entire platform.

    That's what I respect so muchab out the president. He always owns his own decisions. He's a real "the buck stops here' kind of guy.
