Pathetic: Barack Obama Refused To Be Photographed With F-22 Fighter

Reason number 739, 612 that Sarah Palin will make a better Commander-In-Chief than Barack Obama, who recently called our brave troops “a nice photo op.”

This is about as pathetic as it gets. On his recent trip to the far east, where he would not only grovel to the Chinese, but take time to be the only head of state to bow to the Japanese Emperor, Obama stopped off at Elmendorf AFB in Alaska so Air Force One could be refueled, and he could use those brave men and women as a photo op while he held what amounted to a campaign rally.

The F-22 is the pride of Elmendorf, as it should be. But you see, the Obama administration has worked very hard to kill the F-22 program. Reminds us of Jimmy Carter, when at the height of the cold war, he was cancelling advanced weapons programs right and left, so he could throw money at social engineering projects, such as the Community Re-Investment Act, that would directly lead to the huge sub-prime mortgage crash that has our economy in shambles as this is being written, and the establishment of the Department of Education, which has led to the massive decline in the quality of education in America.

So anyhow, Carter 2.0…errr….I mean Obama, is so pathetically petty he doesn’t want to be seen with the most technologically advanced fighter on the planet, a wonderful example of American technology, sophistication, and engineering prowess,… not to mention an incredibly strong symbol of America’s strength,….. because he is the one of the ones who killed it.

From Foreign Policy:

When President Obama spoke to troops at Alaska’s Elmendorf Air Force Base last month, the unit there parked a shiny new F-22 fighter plane in the hangar. But according to multiple sources, White House aides demanded the plane be changed to an older F-15 fighter because they didn’t want Obama speaking in front of the F-22, a controversial program he fought hard to end.

White House aides actually made them remove the F-22-said they would not allow POTUS to be pictured with the F-22 in any way, shape, or form,” one source close to the unit relayed.

Stephen Lee, a public affairs officer at Elmendorf, confirmed to The Cable that the F-22 was parked in the hangar and then was replaced by an F-15 at the White House’s behest.

The airmen there took offense to the Obama aides’ demand, sources told The Cable, seeing it as a slight to the folks who are operating the F-22 proudly every day. They also expressed bewilderment that the White House staff would even care so much as to make an issue out of the fact that the F-22 was placed in the hangar with the president.

A White House official, commenting on background basis, told The Cable that yes, there were discussions about which plane or planes would be in the hangar, but that they were not meant as an insult to the pilots and other personnel who work on the F-22. The official couldn’t elaborate on why the White House aides felt it necessary to get involved in the matter in the first place.

The official pointed to Obama’s speech to the troops that day, where he praised both the 90th Fighter Squadron, known as the “Dicemen,” and the 525th Fighter Squadron, the “Bulldogs,” both of which operate the F-22.

Even so, the Air Force personnel thought it odd the White House wanted to display the older plane rather than the more advanced plane that, in the eyes of its supporters, represents the latest and greatest in American aviation.

The Obama administration fought hard and successfully to cut off production of the F-22 at 187 planes, a number Defense Secretary Robert Gates endorsed but that was hundreds less than originally planned and about half of the 381 planes Air Force leadership lobbied hard for in the years preceding Obama’s inauguration.

It’s one thing to be against further production; quite another to slight the folks who are flying them in the operational world,” one source said, adding that “the F-15 pictured was put into service roughly around the same period when Obama graduated from college. It’s vintage.

The United States has 187 F-22 Raptors defending our nation. There are thousands of brave men and women who fly and maintain them. These men and women take great pride in what they do, and rightly so. It is just beyond the pale that this little man, Obama, would go out of his way to disrespect them, all because of petty politics.

It really makes no sense whatsoever to deny these warriors a chance to show off their finest tools.

Contrast this to Commander-In-Chief Sarah Palin, whose love for the military is well known. We’ve reported on her trips to Kuwait and Kosovo, but here’s some photos of Sarah, in her role as the Alaska National Guard’s C-I-C aboard the USS Stennis during Northern Edge 2009, a joint training mission held this summer.

As you know, in Alaska, with it’s close proximity to Russia, Commander-In-Chief, for the Governor, is an actual job. Forces of the Alaska Air National Guard routinely escort Russian planes out of Alaskan air space. Not long ago, they were decorated for escorting a number of Russian “Bear” bombers back home.

Anyhow, as you can see, Sarah is quite comfortable being filmed up close and personal with our finest and bravest, as well as their equipment.

Sarah and Todd on their way to the plane that will land aboard the USS Stennis as Sarah participates in Northern Edge 2009, a joint training exercise held this summer:

This one is for our buddy Devito: Sarah is doing a little weapons training during her visit to her National Guard troops in Kuwait in 2007:


You tell me, when was the last time we had a Commander-In-Chief who actively took weapons training with their troops?

What a beautiful sight an F-22 Raptor can be to those of us who cherish freedom and liberty:

Every time we think of how great it will be to have Sarah Palin as Commander-In-Chief of our armed forces, an F-22 gets it’s wings! (Yeah, it’s corny, but hey, it’s Christmas time, and we just must get in a “Wonderful” reference somewhere!)

In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t the end of the world. Obama is doing many things a lot worse than this. But it’s just one more slap in the face to the men and women who bravely sacrifice their safety and comfort, so the rest of us can enjoy liberty and freedom. These men and women are the best our nation has to offer. And they do this voluntarily. For Obama to show himself like this is a true insult to our troops and the nation.

BTW, here’s some things Obama is NOT ashamed to be photographed doing:

All I want to know is: Does he inhale?

Two peas in a pod:

Seriously, you don’t see the resemblance?

Here we see Obama at a fund raiser. His current employer, George Soros, is seen sitting in the front row, next to the stairs. He’s on your right, with the jacket, blue shirt, no tie:

Here’s Obama’s blurb for “just another guy in the neighborhood” Bill Ayers’ book. Ayer’s would later return the favor by writing Obama’s first book: Dreams From My Father, for him! (What? It’s settled science!)

Here’s our Barry “community organizing”:

Hmm, teaching at an ACORN training camp. mmmm mmmm mmmm

Really Barack, really?

NOT how Texans wear their hats:

This guy even hates NATIVE Americans!

Is this the precursor to the whole sad Tiger Woods situation?

Not a real photograph, but it could have happened!:

What? All you left wingers thought it was fine when it was Sarah’s face photoshopped in!

This, of course, shows us where we are headed under an Obama presidency. Ride ’em cowboy!

H/T to our buddy Ron at Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments for quick help with photo research and our own photo improver, the Mighty Serf!

Outrageous: Barack Obama “Not Interested In Victory” In War On Terror!

This is beyond contemptible. It’s dangerous and even un-American. This guy, our supposed “commander-in-chief,” is beyond description here. He’s Neville Chamberlain, wrapped up in Jimmy Carter, with a order of Code Pink on the side.

Not interested in victory?

The only real job a President has that is spelled out in the Constitution is protecting the Constitution, and protecting the nation, and this guy has blown it both times. Obama hasn’t followed the Constitution since day one with all of his communistic programs, like cap and tax, and the freedom and liberty destroying ObamaCare fiasco.

Oddly enough, when it comes to Obama himself, victory is cool. After he took office and the complaints were flying that he wouldn’t engage with the Republicans, that he didn’t care about the bipartisanship he ran on, the first of hundreds of lies he has told, Obama famously said “I won.”

Lest you think this is an isolated incident:

“I’m always worried about using the word victory.”

____Barack Obama

Are you kidding me?

This man is not fit to sit in the Oval Office. Period!

We have North Korea testing long range missiles, we have Russia flexing it’s muscles, and helping Venezuela start on the path towards nuclear weapons. We have a shaky Iraq, Afghanistan is in trouble, and this pathetic man cannot step up to the pump. Iran may possibly have a nuclear weapon this year, and Obama is at the U.N and the G20 talking rainbows, unicorns, and nuclear disarmament! (For us)

The world has become exponentially more dangerous since this inexperienced “community organizer” has taken office. Obama is totally asleep at the wheel on national security and foreign relations.

Actually, that’s only partially true. For the entire time George W Bush was President, he sent messages to the Iranian people that we were not their enemy, that our quarrel was with their leaders. The implication was if they decided to rebel against the mullahs, we’d be there. Well, after the last “election” in Iran, evidently run buy ACORN’S Islamic subsidiary, the Iranian people finally decided they had indeed had enough of their oppressive government, and took to the streets, en masse.

Where was Obama? It took him weeks to formulate a response, and it was weak, and basically a hands off deal, saying it wasn’t our problem. Meanwhile brave Iranians who, like all human beings, merely desired freedom and liberty, were being slaughtered in the streets.

Nice going Obama!

On the other hand, down in Honduras, we had a dictator wannabe legally and constitutionally removed from office. Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, who like our President, is term limited, was trying to manipulate the population into allowing him to remain “president for life” much like his communist pals Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers. In fact, world wide, Hugo Chavez, the Castro Brothers, and Barack Obama, all communists, are the only ones rooting for Zelaya!

Obama went so far as to call this an illegal coup de’tat, which is ridiculous. The Honduran military, Congress, and most importantly, their Supreme Court, had all ruled against Zelaya’s attempt to usurp their Constitution, and removed him from office, by force. This was perfectly legal. It fact, it’s exactly how a functioning government should work.

Unfortunately, the checks and balances in our own country are no longer working as well.

It’s despicable that we have one nation that is a threat to the entire world, whose leadership could have been toppled, with a possible democracy replacing it, and yet our so-called “president” did nothing, while at the same time, another nation, a functioning democracy, is about to be toppled by a communist dictator, and he sides with the dictator, and is still actively trying to force this free nation into installing this obvious traitor to his nation back in power!

This would be as if the Germans had figured Hitler out before he went off the deep end, and ousted him, only to have Roosevelt demand the Germans put him back in office! It would have been outrageous then, and it’s just as outrageous now!

The point of all of this is simply one thing. It’s obvious that Obama is not fit for office. Obama has left the United States, and the entire free world, vulnerable to attack from any number of rouge nations. Obama has abdicated America’s role as the leader of the free world.

While we have brave men and women serving, and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama couldn’t care less. Obama is still in campaign mode trying to force his liberty destroying ObamaCare monstrosity down an angry America’s throat!

America has clearly spoken, they want no part of ObamaCare. None! But it seems Obama is very interested in a victory there, because it will usurp our Constitution, and fundamentally change America into a communist nation. Clearly THAT victory would be acceptable for Obama. But victory against nations that want to destroy all of mankind, not so much.

We have our theater commanders telling Obama, in no uncertain terms, that we need more troops in Afghanistan, or we will lose. General McChrystal is requesting 30,000-40,000 troops. What is Obama doing? Nothing.

Here’s a hint Obama, this isn’t like your Senate job where you can just vote “present” you are actually expected to make a decision!

Where is Congress?

The Republican party should be demanding this man’s resignation. Obama has clearly abdicated his constitutional duty to protect our Constitution and to protect our nation. Are there no patriotic democrats left? Are the members of both parties so interested in holding on to their phony-baloney jobs that whatever Obama wants to do is fine?

What happens when Iran sends a nuke into Israel and wipes them out? How about Iraq? Europe? How about when Hugo Chavez gets some nukes from Russia and decides to let them fly?

It’s time for the American people to demand Obama step down, resign. He is clearly not a leader and clearly does not have America’s best interests in mind. The world is too dangerous for an “on the job training” president.

Growing up, our greatest enemy was the Soviet Union. When Ronald Reagan became President, he had a very simple strategy: “We win, they lose!”

After we were attacked on 9/11 George W Bush stated “you are either with us, or against us.”

We need leaders in this nation, not “community organizers.”
