Obama awards himself a DOD Distinguished Public Service Medal

Imagine if you’re a military general.

You tell your underling to pin an award medal on you.

I think y’all will agree that the general just gave an award to himself, which is vain and plain ridiculous.

That’s exactly what Obama, Commander in Chief of the U.S. military, did two days ago on January 4, 2017.


Josh Lederman and Vivian Salama report for the Associated Press (via The Herald Dispatch), Jan 4, 2017, that Obama met Wednesday with military leaders for the last time at a farewell ceremony at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, a short drive from the White House:

“Prior to his remarks, Defense Secretary Ash Carter presented Obama with the Medal of Distinguished Public Service as a token of appreciation for his service as commander in chief. […]

Addressing a room of men and women from the various branches of the military, Obama praised their service and sacrifice. He said there is ‘no greater privilege and no greater honor’ than serving as commander in chief.

‘As I reflect on the challenges we have faced together and on those to come, I believe that one of the greatest tasks before our armed forces is to retain the high confidence that the American people rightly place in you,’ Obama said. ‘We must never hesitate to act when necessary to defend our nation, but we must also never rush into war because sending you into harm’s way should be a last and not first resort.’ […]

President Barack Obama called for a smooth handover of control of the U.S. military to incoming commander in chief Donald Trump, as the outgoing president met Wednesday with military leaders for the last time.

‘We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity,’ Obama said. He said it was critical to ensure that ‘we are doing everything we can to make sure that the next president will benefit from the same kinds of outstanding advice and service that these people around the table have provided me.'”

Blah, blah, blah, blah . . . .

Medal of Distinguished Public Service as Commander in Chief?

Ash Carter, the ass-kisser, must mean these distinguished accomplishments of CIC Barack Obama:

  1. Obama the Emir definitely earned a medal for creating ISIS/ISIL/Daesh/whatever he wants to call his JV team. Under his watch, Christians were butchered in the Middle East. Good jihad, glorious leader.

  4. I catch your drift, but in the Obamination’s case, no valor was imparted, none was stolen, so he remains as before: a ZERO at attention.

  5. As my friend who was formerly very highly placed at IBM taught me many years ago, this is a perfect illustration of ‘Garbage in, garbage out.” Perfect.

  7. Bush 43 got one because he loved the troops, he showed it, and they loved him. I don’t know, but I can’t ever remember any other President getting one, but it might so common-place that I never noticed before(?).

    Obama ordered he get one because “W” got one.
    I hope there will be an investigation on how this came about after Trump gets in, and the details are honestly exposed. Obozo has just ruined any honor and pride for anyone getting this medal.
    Meaningless, like Obozo getting the “Dynamite Co. Peace Prize”. Then going out and blowing up the Muslim world.

  8. It will be interesting to see how historians rate this man in 30 years. My guess is somewhere between Pol Pot and Stalin.

  11. Obozo has proven over and over that his presidency has been a massive social experiment failure.
    Because of affirmative action and the color of his skin , he has been told all his life how brilliant he is for completing the most basic tasks.
    He and his useful idiots have always believed that he was the smartest guy in the room.
    There is nothing more dangerous than giving power to an imbecile who believes he is a genius. !!!!!!!!

  12. Well he already got the controlled Nobel Peace Prize for bombing countries and funding Isis, so why not? While he’s at it he should also award himself a purple heart for having to be the ‘bottom’ for his husband ‘Mike’. Ugh.
    What a loser…..
