Commander in Chief? Obama Makes Surprise Visit to Afghanistan and Forgets Coast Guard is a Branch of the Military


Commander in Chief?

President Barack Hussein Obama makes a surprise visit to Afghanistan to see the troops, ut to their surprise the Commander in Chief does not realize that the Coast Guard is a branch of the military, as he forgets to thank them. I guess they were not listed on his teleprompter.


“I think we’ve got every service here tonight,” Obama said at Bagram Air Base. He then called on the branches as their members cheered: “We’ve got Army. We’ve got Navy. We’ve got Air Force. I think we may have a few Marines around, too.”

Obama continued, “And a whole lot of folks from the 101st Airborne Division, the Screaming Eagles.”

Moving to his remarks, Obama said, “Now, here in Afghanistan …” Then, someone in the crowd shouted out, “Coast Guard!”

“Coast Guard?” Obama repeated. “Is that what I heard?”

Are you serious?

      Could this President be more of a putz?

      Seriously, we were told that Obama was just so smart and an intellectual and such a great leader. Obama is such a fraud. This fool could not spell cat if we spotted him the c and the a.

      It will not be long until is average approval ratings will be in the 30′s. I cannot wait for the LEFT to lose their collective minds when he caves on the Bush tax cuts for those that make 250K and more.

      This is a Community (Union) Organizer who advises and
      incites ‘Communities’ to rise up and drain the blood from
      the golden goose that Liberal (Progressive)administrations
      use in turn to keep ‘Communities’ dependent. Dependent

      No surprise from someone who failed to appear at the dedication for the D-Day veterans in France this year.

      MC – precisely. And the long awkward pause when the crowd reminded Obama that the Coast Guard is a part of the military… He just didn’t know that, and didn’t know how to respond.

      Commander in Chief, ha! If it wasn’t for our military, all the bad guys in the world would have already made a play for us. That’s why I donate to the USO.

      Remember our soldiers and sailors at Christmas folks. Donate. Do something nice for their families here at home.

      I never thought I’d live to see the day that the president of The United States is an idiot – and everyone knows it – how humiliating and scary.

    9. paula on December 5th, 2010 4:33 pm

      Its Me…Of course he has alot of money, George Soros supply is limitless.

      #7: that money is part of the stimulus money that somehow has never shown up. we can’t trust the democrats with the security of our country ans we surely can’t trust them with a trillion dollars !!!!
