Stumbling Out of the Gate. Barack Hussein Obama Says Troops Lives Were ?Wasted? in Iraq.

by @ 5:12 pm. Filed under Nuts on Parade

Time for Obama to pull up a seat next to John Kerry when it comes to trashing our troops. Mr. Obama has dishonored soldiers who have fallen in battle by calling their lives “wasted”. See the video below.



You don’t get the job of Commander-in-Chief
by talking about dead troops like that!
(Yesterday in Iowa.)

Hat tip to Hot Air.

He said:


And have seen over 3000 lives. Of the bravest young Americans wasted.

Spoken like a man who really does not care about the families who lost a loved one in Iraq. Many troops signed up a 2nd or even 3rd time after being able to leave. Now Obama is saying they are wasting their effort and if they lose their life it was “wasted”.

I wonder what Obama has to say about the estimated over 5 million babies killed in mothers’ wombs across America since the start of the war in Iraq? Oh he’d just call that over 5 million choices

    Obama tastes shoe leather- Soldiers death are lives wasted

    Allahpundit at Hot Air, for whom I thank for the clip, sums it up thusly:
    Now we know for sure he’s not the messiah. The messiah doesn’t make mistakes.

    Note this is a reference to the status of near divinity that so many in the media …

    It is CLEAR that most people do not have the wisdom or intellect to understand the strength of the President’s statement. When he said soldiers lives were wasted he did NOT call them a waste. He was merely stating they died senseless deaths and their valuable lives were wasted by being taken without just cause. They died in a needless war when they could have continued to live on. PAY ATTENTION people and stop LOOKING for reasons to discredit people by your own ignorance. He stated fact. Their young lives were wasted on a battle field unnecessarily as they had no real reason to risk their lives for the cause in which they died. PLEASE exercise wisdom before making adolescent comments in a feeble attempt to sound educated and wise. You are making yourselves look foolish, while clearly displaying your reality of ignorance. You may want to refrain from trying to translate a language you cannot speak. HOW you got JIBBERISH out of a clear and concise speech is BEYOND me.

    Hello EJ,

    Do you not realize that Obama himself apologized for that statement?

    Stumbling out of the gate, Sen. Barack Obama said in his first presidential campaign news conference that the lives of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq were “wasted.” He quickly retracted the statement, and later apologized to anybody he offended.

    Obama says he immediately realized he had made a mistake. Like other war critics, he has been careful to praise U.S. troops and say nothing that would sound unsupportive. ”I was actually upset with myself when I said that, because I never use that term,” he told the Des Moines Register. ”Their sacrifices are never wasted. . . . What I meant to say was those sacrifices have not been honored by the same attention to strategy, diplomacy and honesty on the part of civilian leadership that would give them a clear mission.”

    He was asked Monday whether military families deserved an apology. “Well as I said, it is not at all what I intended to say, and I would absolutely apologize if any of them felt that in some ways it had diminished the enormous courage and sacrifice that they’d shown.

    So Obama has fully apologized and noted his statement as a mistake. It’s time you move on from this. This post is a year old today and you’ve come to try and start a stir over something even the speaker said was an inappropriate choice of words.

    The man won the election and you’re coming here to raise a stir over a matter that is now a year old. Everybody else has moved on to other things and I suggest you do the same.

    Let it end here EJ.
