Barack Obama woke up early this morning to welcome home the bodies of 18 fallen U.S. soldiers who were killed fighting the war in Afghanistan.

The photo shows Obama standing on a tarmac just before dawn and saluting as servicemen carry their fallen comrades off a transport plane.

More soldiers are dying as Obama continues to drag his feet on making a decision to send more troops to Afghanistan. One high ranking military official quit this week in disgust.

This from Kenny Soloman:

The commander-in-chief of the armed forces of The United States of America has welcomed home 18 of those under his command who have fallen. For that act, reading nothing into it, I say thank you, Sir.

However, I firmly believe the very same commander-in-chief of the armed forces of The United States of America is purposely working towards the defeat of the armed forces of The United States of America and thus the nation and her people.

It is also thoroughly abhorrent to me that the current commander-in-chief of the armed forces of The United States of America is attempting to project an understanding of the honor and gravity involved in what is taking place before him.

The Mudville Gazette noted that “only one of the families allowed the president to use the occasion for his photo-op.”

And Hermie added that George Bush never used such a solemn occasion for a photo op in his 8 years in office.

    OBAMA IS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY AS WELL AS AND/OR BETTER THAN BUSH

  • ReadTheBlog

    Regardless of how we feel about the troops being there, and if it’s worth it, I thouhgt that was very noble of him to be there, when those dead bodies were shipped back to be buried, because he really didn’t have to show up.

    I mean given how every move he makes is regarded to the likes of skid marks in someones draws, he still tried to bring an element of humanity to the conflict our country is involved in.

  • missmiami

    I AM EARNESTLY PRAYING FOR THE STRENGTH OF OUR PRESIDENT AND ASK THAT U GUYS DO THE SAME. I PRAY HE DOESN’T GET DRAGGED INTO AN ENDLESS BATTLE SUCH AS AFGHANISTAN JUST LIKE COUNTLESS OTHER PRESIDENTS.

  • melinla

    Bush didn’t do it because it was against the law to publish these types of photos. However the law was recently changed and they are allowed to be published, but only with the consent of the family….

    PEOPLE ARE EXPECTING MIRACLES AND IT HASN’T EVEN BEEN A FULL YEAR YET!

  • SunnyPA

    Blame isn’t going to bring any of those soldiers back. And, like Obama, I am undecided on how to go forward to keep more from dying. But then, no one elected me president.

    My prayers are with the troops. I pray God keeps his arms wrapped around them and gives them spiritual peace.

  • PAHairston

    Can President Obama EVER, EVER, EVER do anything right in your eyes Sandra?

    WAR, HUH, what is it good for, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Say it again ya’ll, WAR, HUH, what is it good for, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Peace and love is the answer!

    Dear Mr. Obama,

    Please forgive (and pray for) Ms. Rose for she has diarrhea of the mouth regarding your decision about worldly affairs. I imagine you have a very hard job of cleaning up this mess we were placed in for the last 8 years. Instead of tearing you down, I plan to keep you and your family in my prayers. I hear all the comments about what you are not doing but you have only been in office 10 months so I will continue to support you. I imagine you will have many, many candidates for presidency running against you when your term ends because everyone seems to know how this country is SUPPOSED to be ran but simply hide behind their computers. Cowards, you say? I say the same thing. One candidate who will be putting her name in the hat for presidency is Sandra Rose. Remember that name. Because even though she’s not a US citizen she knows EVERYTHING about what is not going right here in the country. Have a bless day.

    Back to our regularly scheduled program:

    @ Sandra, please can we have some morning wood tomorrow? I know you don’t care for men but some of us do. Boris Kodjoe? :pray:

    Dear Ms. Rose.
    Of all your posts past and present, I unequivocally hate your posts about the American President hands down Unwavering HATE!!

    I typically rush past them without even reading the headers, because I don’t want to say anything hateful…not for the sake of remaining a poster on your blog…but for the sake of puting “Love Thy Enemy” into practice…

    “The commander-in-chief of the armed forces of The United States of America has welcomed home 18 of those under his command…..”

    Are you serious? Under his command? This war was inherited. The proceeding CIC put american lives in stake for CAPITOLSIM!!

    Have we forgotten…Have you forgotten? Were you here in the states September 11th

    To the person who says that Bush took care of Texas that’s total bullshyt. Bush took care of people all over the US that looks like him! I am a Texan and I totally disagree.

  • RachelRachel

    Everybody who is intelligent knows that the previous President was a crook and that he nevered cared about anyone who was killed in combat. Now, all of a sudden, certain people in high places in waking up to the ills of murdering one another……give-me-a-break! I overstand whiteys’ hating The Obamas, but for any other race of people to hate on them is pure un-intelligent of them. Why don’t yall haters of The Obamas run for president and see just how things are really done. There is so very much that the common everyday person does not even know about politics, so until you have studied politics daily as you daily study these entertainers, your point of views are far off base and quite embrassing. Politics and Religion are high-stakes in the game of life. Both of them are full of crooks, extreme liars, winners and total losers. The Obamas are really trying to straighten out alot of the mess that the previous administrations have laid as a foundation. Their job is nowhere near Easy and the colour of their skin makes their job even harder than you can imagine. Think!
