Obama Said There Would Be No Media & No Photos from Dover … Obama Lied … Uses Dead Seal Heroes for Political Photo Op


Commander in Chief, eh … Barack Obama, you are a pathetic, small, small man. You should be ashamed; however, one would have to have shame, in order to be ashamed.


Once again the Obama White House uses the theory, always take advantage of a crisis, even when President Barack Obama said there would be no pics or lasting images of the US military heroes return from the helicopter crash that killed 31 in Afghanistan. Obama said there would be no pictures, but the “small” leader just could not stop himself … they posted the pic on the White House web site as the “photo of the day”.

From the AP comes the following regarding Obama’s lie to the families of US military heroes. It would appear the AP is non too happy with Barack Obama. Neither are the families of the deceased military heroes.

A White House photographer was allowed to take and widely distribute a photo from the ceremony Tuesday for the return of the remains of 30 American troops killed in a weekend helicopter crash in Afghanistan despite the Pentagon’s claim that any public depiction of the scene would violate the wishes of bereaved families.

News media coverage of the ceremony had been banned by the Pentagon over the objections of several news organizations.

Pentagon officials had said that because 19 of 30 of the American families of the dead had objected to media coverage of the remains coming off a plane at Dover Air Force Base, no images could be taken. In addition, the Pentagon rejected media requests to take photos that showed officials at the ceremony but did not depict caskets.

The head of public affairs at the Pentagon stated that the department did not know the White House photographer was present and had no idea a photo of the event was being released until it became public. UNREAL. Even more unreal, Obama and the WH actually had the audacity to defend what they did.

“The White House routinely releases photos taken by the White House photographers in specific circumstances where it would be inappropriate to include members of the media,” Carney said. “In this case, the White House released the photo, in the interests of transparency, so that the American people could have as much insight as possible into this historic and sobering event.”

Is it any wonder why Democrats try and prevent absentee ballots from the military to not be counted? What a Commander in Chief, using dead American heroes for his political gain to make the misleader look Presidential. You never looked more un-Presidential, Barack Obama.

      This is the most transparent president ever. Anyone can see his motives and methods. Some like what he is doing, others don’t care, some don’t get it. The rest can’t seem to do anything about it except Vote against him.

      Repubs need to put someone up against him that can win the independent vote.

      Can’t see the problem with a President paying respect to returning fallen heroes and publicizing that picture.

      It seems that some are getting rather desperate and criticize as soon as the President even farts.

      Although I don’t like Romney per say; going to watch intently tonight; but he is THE ONE who could pull the independents to his side.

      This is getting ridiculous; these truly political actions that desecrate our fallen soliders.

      Obama can’t even do a proper military salute. But he THOUGHT about going into the military.

      I like Pawlenty and Romney (although it still stings here in Mass what he helped to implement for our Mandated Health Care….OUCH!)

      In so far as Obama saying one thing, then doing another and sending (yet again) another ANTI AMERICAN message to the masses—-after all this time—why pretend to be shocked?

      The One—is ONE AND DONE.

      [...] as Americans struggle and the economy continues to flounder … but he certainly has no problem using the image of dead US Navy Seals to his political advantage after Obama stated there would be no media or photo-ops.  Is it any wonder why Obama’s job [...]

      President Obama stood at attention for the full 3 1/2 hour ceremony at Dover that day — as each of the fallen was honored. Didn’t see that mentioned in the article.
      SM: Who needs to mention that, he more than had the photo-op against the will of the US Navy Seal’s families to remind us. BTW, that’s his job. 3 1/2 hrs one day vs. endless golf. I would dare say he spends more time of the golf course than he does at Dover. How many times does he go to Dover without his camera in tow? The answer, ZERO!
