Commenters keep telling us that American troops support Barack Obama for the Presidency of the United States. That seems strange to us, so we went looking for proof. Read about it here.

I was having a discussion with some friends online earlier today. The discussion had to do with a letter that has been sent out by an American Soldier. The letter describes the reality of the Presumptuous Nominee of the Democratic Party for President of the United States, Barack Obama’s visit to the war zone in Afghanistan a couple of weeks ago. My friends said they had seen photos of Obama with the troops. No, those turned out to be faked. Remember, even Obama’s campaign admitted they had filmed the basketball thing to get that shot and had set up the photos.

You see, its been in the news a lot today that Obama is receiving more donations from military personnel than John McCain. According to what is being reported in the news, Obama’s campaign has received donations from 134 deployed military personnel totaling $60,000, while McCain’s campaign has received $10,665 from 26 deployed military personnel.

Oh Please!! I’m so sure that deployed men and women are sending donations to anyone – much less Obama. I can see a handful doing it, but 134 sending an average of $450 apiece? I don’t think so.

Regardless of the believability of these statistics, all the little Obama drones are running around dutifully from website to blog to website to blog to leave comments pointing out that the military wants Obama as our next President. This is proof they say. There is is, in black and white. Proof positive that the military LOVES Obama. Why, we’ve even had them drop that goo in our comments right here on Right Pundits!

You know the old adage, if you repeat a lie often enough then people will believe it.

So if the Troops support Obama, then the question remains, does Obama support the Troops? I went in search of the answer for that. I did searches for photos of Obama with Soldiers. The searches came up empty. I went to military websites and looked for photographic evidence that Obama spent a second or two with our Troops while he was on his whirlwind stop-over in Afghanistan and Iraq war zones while on his way to his self-involved, self-promoting, grandiose series of photo-ops tour of Germany Europe.

One would certainly expect that he’d want a photo-op with the Troops. Right?

I couldn’t find any photos. All I found was one photo of him in a helicopter getting a birds eye view of Afghanistan. He looked like he was having a blast. But he supports the Troops, right? I did find a video of him criticizing the Troops. He said they really needed to be doing more than just killing civilians. Wow. That’s really an astounding level of contempt for our Armed Forces! And he wants to be Commander in Chief. THAT is a scary thought.

Barack Obama is not qualified to be Commander in Chief of the American military, in my opinion. To be in command of Armed Services one should first love the country those men and women serve and then love those men and women for serving. Obama doesn’t even know what that means.

Obama says all our troops are doing is “just air-raiding villages and killing civilians”.
