Latest Abuse By CIC To Our Military ~ Unforgivable


David Borden Jr. US Marine was wounded in Iraq on January 19, 2008. A suicide bomber rushed him and detonated, and Borden was hit by over 200 pieces of shrapnel. He lost right leg (below the knee) and his left arm was severely damaged. He was in a coma for over a month.

He's inspired more than a few people while recovering. Dave Jr has had over 38 surgeries to date.

According to the email below from his father, David Borden (Sr.), David Jr. had an uninspiring visit from the President of the United States:

Since Dave Jr. has been injured he has met and been overwhelmed by many, many political and military "celebs". The list includes Bob Gates, Sec. of Defense, who came into his room and told him 3 or 4 times that if Dave Jr. had any issues to call his cell phone number. It includes Gen. Petereus who sat and talked with Dave Jr. for almost 45 minutes. The General recalled vividly all of the circumstances around the events that led to fighting that Dave was involved in. It includes Sen. McCain who arrived late on a Saturday afternoon during a thunder storm, unannounced, and talked to Dave Jr. about how similar their experiences with fate. It includes George Bush when Dave Jr. was invited to attend the very last Christmas party at the White House for the White House Staff. President Bush and his wife entered the ballroom and immediately went to Dave Jr.. President Bush knew Dave Jr.'s name as well as when and how he was injured. Dave Jr. had a picture taken with Laura and the President that he has framed and ill cherish forever. The list goes on and on of people coming in to meet Dave Jr. and the other wounded warriors at Walter Reed and Bethesda.

Yesterday. Dave Jr. was ordered to be at the National Naval Hospital with another 12 soldiers and Marines to meet with Obama. Obama was supposed to arrive at 11:30 AM. He finally got there at 3:00 PM. He entered the room with the wounded warriors and quickly shook each of their hands. He never asked their names, where they were from, or how they were injured. Then he left.
Dave Jr. has met the people who really care about the military. All he remembers from Obama is a weak handshake. The others in the room, younger and less exposed to the people that Dave Jr. has met, were so disappointed. Word about Obama's "insensitive" visit has spread to the MATC ( the rehab facility) at Walter Reed and throughout Bethesda. The military sees through his phoniness.
All I can say is that it is such a disappointment that this man is Commander-In-Chief of our Armed Forces. He is an embarrassment to our Nation.
Regards, Dave


Wild Thing's comment........

Obama used them !!!

He demanded they be there, then he makes them wait and tops it off by a quickie handshake.

You all know me and you know that the top of my list of loves is our military and our Veterans. I have re-written this comment now for over an hour and I keep deleting what I am thinking.

There is a special, a very special place in hell for Barack Hussein Obama.

It wasn’t even a photo op, just a press op.

Obama Visits Troops at Naval Hospital Obama visits patients at the Naval Hospital, awards purple hearts By The Associated Press BETHESDA, Md. June 1, 2009 (AP)
President Barack Obama has visited wounded and recovering troops, awarding two Purple Hearts.
Obama spent about an hour Monday afternoon at the National Naval Medical Center outside Washington.
He met with 26 inpatients, as well as about 30 outpatients and their families. He awarded two Purple Hearts during the visit. Obama also spent time with the hospital’s staff.

Virtually every report on this visit, including military news, is exactly the same. Looks like a press release. The press did not cover it. They merely reported it, as per Obama's request.

If he had one hour in which to “meet” 56 people, plus awarding Purple Hearts and meeting the hospital staff, that amounts to about 45 seconds per person. Enough time to share a limp handshake.

Obama does not understand this country and for what it stands.He does not care about these men and women and their sacrifices.

LOOK at these, only press releases. MAN OH MAN I SWEAR I COULD NOT BE MORE OUTRAGED ABOUT THIS and after the way he treated the terrorist attack at the recruiting office not making a statement, not doing anything. Then leaving the country to go do his trip to Saudi Arabia. If he cared he could have done a trip to the soldiers homes or something!!!!!!!

What a POS!! He spends more time eating ice cream and golfing than meeting with our wounded heroes. Nice guy.

The stories of our young men and women are so inspiring. A May '08 article on David Borden Jr. can be found here...

This one of the reason why the majority of the military voted for John McCain. During the campaign Obambi used every encounter with soldiers as a photo op....I remember one instance during his "love" tour in Germany that he didn't visit a U.S. hospital in Germany because no press was allowed and that meant NO PHOTO OP. There's no love betweeen Obambi and the military, during an interview or something similar THE ONE said regarding a bracelet honoring a fallen soldier that Obama wore "I have one too....." and then e looked on his wrist to read the name

Accusing Obama of egregious treatment is being magnanimous to this piece of work. No respect, no compassion, no guts and no balls, he's a Capon.
C'mon ABC where's your spin?

Look at the contrast. You read where they came into his room, visited him unannounced, and invited to the White House. They all knew his name and the circumstances of his being wounded. Then you read "ordered to be" and late to arrive. What a world of difference.

Visiting the wounded military was nothing but a grip and grin publicity shot for Obama. Disgusting!

Posted by: BobF at June 23, 2009 11:35 AM

He's got a lot to learn! Obviously, the military doesn't run very strong in his family and they are just a nuisance to him. Sorry Charlie--even if he was in an accident and the military came in, they'd still save his sorry butt!
What he just did was disgusting.

Didn't obama also spend 56 minutes listening with interest to a rant by eithet Hugo Chavez or David Ortega? Of course they are fellow travellers, Marxist leaders. These American military were merely protectors of our liberty.

obama is a man of photo ops and press ops. He is totally self absorbed and by his recent delayed and weak reaction to the Iranian riots, we see he is weak and fearful of taking a controversal stand.

What a phony son of a bitch. He probably knows they didn't or wouldn't vote for him.

In this instance Obama is just being a typical Illinois Democrats. The all went that way When the Illinois Republicans got so strong in the nineteen fifties.
Usually Obama does something that is note worthy, not this time. Typical Chicago Democrat.

Disgraceful. DISGRACEFUL- and THIS is the "Commander in Chief"? I have been calling FULL OF SHIT ever since his campaign started, and after the TOTAL 'DIS' of the soldiers in Germany where he WOULD'NT EVEN LOOK AT THEM, I'm not surprised at all. DISGUSTED, but not surprised. He'd better.... one of those REAL patriot soldiers might just......nuf said.

It turns out David's grandfather played for the 1935 NY Giants.

Posted by: BobF at June 23, 2009 05:24 PM

For those who will not say it, I will. Blowbama is a worthless piece of shit. Hell is to good for that bastard. When he sees his last day on earth ( I pray it is soon) he will relagated to purgatory for eternity. Rot you bastard!

Unfortunately I'm not suprised, outraged still, but not suprised. He's too busy congratulating brainwashed kids (future obamacorps generals) who do non-profit community organizing (voter intimidation).

Didn't vote for him, won't next time either.
