It’s no secret that the good ol’ stars and starlets of tinseltown have no respect for the men and women of our military. Much like our president, however, they’re smart enough to know that they should act as though they do.
It’s exactly why every now and then a Hollywood celebrity will say that they “support our troops but not the war” or that “these men and women shouldn’t be dying in vain.” Is anybody still fooled by those one-liners anymore? Similarly in our president’s case, it’s why he continually says that he supports our troops without giving them so much as a shred of his time. I’m sure that the men and women putting themselves in harms way will understand though. After all, he’s got a meeting with one Mr. David Letterman.
For those who haven’t yet heard, Obama has met with General Stanley McChrystal (the good man in charge of leading our honorable troops to victory in Afghanistan) only once, yes, ONCE in the last seventy days. So it seems apparent that while Obama has no time to devote to the men and women of our armed services (the same people who ultimately make him look good), he has plenty of time to devote to promoting himself.
As Barack Obama devotes more time to personal press than any other president in history (in record time to boot), it’s becoming more and more glaringly apparent… Our president is more Paris Hilton than General Patton.
Just like the toolbags of Hollywood, Barack Obama’s favorite topic of the day is himself. Also, like the folks of Tinseltown, all of the problems plaguing our world today are problems that he and he alone can fix. How would he fix them, you ask?
By regurgitating rhetoric to every broadcast journalist, press-hound or comedian that will sit in front of him, of course!
*Note: The above statement does not apply to those with the last names Hannity and/or O’Reilly.
Sure, when Hollywood turns their backs on our troops, it’s wrong, and it ultimately does hurt morale. When all is said and done, however, I doubt that there are platoons of Marine’s sitting around Afghanistan sulking butt-hurtedly over Sean Penn’s most recent asinine comments. When it comes down to it, in the big picture of war, the people of Hollywood just don’t matter that much.
In contrast to that, there is a direct correlation between our president willfully choosing to ignore those fighting for our freedoms and their success in carrying out their/our mission. Which in turn means that fighting in the military with Barack Obama as Commander in Chief is not the ideal place to be.
In light of this, I’d like to recommend to you, Mr. President that you sack up and start focusing on the things that really matter. If you read below, I’m sure you’ll find that there are many people here who agree (that’s your cue to comment).
Don’t worry about the mainstream media, sir. You can put them on the back-burner for a little while. I promise you that David Letterman will still love you in the morning.
