Did you know that some of our military actually love president Obama?

in here some are always claiming that the military hates our president. turns out some love him.
BAGHDAD – Cheered wildly by U.S. troops, President Barack Obama flew unannounced into Iraq on Tuesday and promptly declared it was time for Iraqis to "take responsibility for their country" after America's commitment of six years and thousands of lives.
Inside a marble palace, he was interrupted repeatedly with cheers from the troops.
"I love you," someone in the crowd shouted out. I love you back," the commander in chief replied. Scores of troops held digital cameras above their heads, snapping pictures and recording video of a day they would long remember.

  • Of course. Someone would have to be very ignorant to actually believe that ALL of our military does not agree with him.

  • I'm so glad that they aren't going to be in Iraq any longer. Maybe all the war will end too. Hopefully. I knew some military loved the president. I have friends in the military that voted for him =]

  • I would like to point out that of course troops are cheering for the President. He is, after all, their BOSS and the President of their country lol.

    Yes, there are some military men and women who like Obama, just like there are those who didn't like Bush, but I think the cheering could also come from the fact that he showed up in Iraq, a war zone, and is there to greet the troops and talk to them. THAT deserves cheering, even if you don't like his politics.

    Being in the military doesn't make a person a mindless drone. You don't become a republican by joining the military lol. :)

    I find it amusing that he said " I love you back". That's really cool, I think! :)

  • edit to add: I do not mean republicans are mindless drones. Sorry. That came out bad! I just meant that people in the military all don't fall under one political affiliation.

  • Oh please, Bush went during the height of fighting on a holiday and went straight to the kitchen to give out meals and thank the troops and it was all secret until it was over.
    A$$hole goes when things are quieted down, with the media swooning, and makes a speech in the palace under a huge chandeleir.
    Oh yeah, I see the difference, plain as the huge mole on his ugly face.
