New Book Tells How Barack Obama Did NOT Want To Take Photos With The US Troops In Iraq

Barack Obama tells US troops, “You guys make a pretty good photo op.”

A new book by Michael Hastings, The Operators, reveals that Barack Obama did not want to take photos with the US troops in Iraq.

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.
He’s asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He’s asked to sign copies of his book. “He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,” a State Department official tells me. “Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let’s just say the scales fell from my eyes after I did. These are people over here who’ve been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn’t want to take fu*king pictures with them?”

Our troops and Veterans = Americans, Heroes, awesome human beings

Obama= low class, community organizer, hater of all things American and American citizens and our military!

Listen how he says "we are grateful for your service". It's like he's having to force himself to say it.

obama and Hillary share a disdain for our military. They are more into the OWS and anarchist types.
