HotIgneous Intruder: Satanic_Hamster: Figures.  Obama gives the medal to a guy who kissed another man instead of REAL AMERICAN for killing others.

Not really funny.

ScaryBottles: eraser8: ScaryBottles: Obunghole handing out more free stuff this is news?

just kidding...

I know you were joking, but I just can't understand the hatred directed at the president.  As I've said before,  it seems completely out of proportion to anything he's done.

So, what's the cause of it?  What's the explanation?

/This question is for everybody. ScaryBottles's post is just the one I attached the question to.

I'll give you a hint it rhymes with "Tree's Track"

Damn, that video, it was so realistic that the dust that the helicopter was kicking up got right into my damned eye. Need to be more cautious with what you post, Subs.

If the Tea Party gets to impeach Obama and annul his presidency like it never happened, do these guys have to return their medals? And will they be re-awarded by president Cruz?

You now officially have your own unique favorite color on TF.  I'm calling it "encyclopedia".

INeedAName: And how many right-wingers are decrying this a political move to avoid the military uprising?


I see I was just a bit too late...

Klippoklondike: The WindowLicker: This was the same battle that Dakota Meyer earned his MOH.  In fact, In Meyer's autobiography, he spent a few chapters excoriating the Army unit responsible for the team's artillery support, and praising Army Capt. Swenson.

I am very supprised that they announced this, because for a long time Swenson's citation paperwork was "lost."  It was a terrible farkup by some Army brass that primarily resulted in dead Marines and Sailor.  I thought inter-service drama and politics was going to ensure Capt. Swenson never got the recognition he deserved.

He sounds like a standup guy.  Then again, MOH recipients always are.  If more people were like this man the world would be a much better place.


Agreed.  He should be in Congress, but I wouldn't want to wish that on the man.
