Fw: President Obama Awards Himself Distinguished Public Service Medal

Obviously well deserved, otherwise his employee wouldn’t have gone to all that trouble. You should call him and congratulate him.

President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.

Secretary Carter awarded his boss with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.
Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported.
After spending the last few weeks throwing roadblocks in the path of President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, Obama nonetheless claimed in his remarks to the members of the military in attendance that “We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity.”
Along with the AP, CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller also marked the ceremony with a Tweet to his followers.View image on TwitterView image on Twitter

Aw, now, you can't expect RWD to check his facts or sources, now. How will he remain militantly ignorant if he starts doing liberal things like that?

As a side note, I wonder when the Right will stop obsessing over Obama? Guy's not president anymore -- maybe they can move on?

The Right is still obsessing over Obama in order to prevent having to ponder the horror of the man they have in the White House now.

Hell, the Right is still obsessing over Jimmy Carter.

I wonder if RWD is still obsessing about how often Obama allegedly played golf, given that the current occupant of "their" WHITE House flies to Mar-El-Largo nearly every single weekend to play golf.

I wonder if RWD is still obsessing about how much of THEIR tax dollars were "wasted" on all the alleged many many vacations that the Obamas supposedly took. But I guess RWD is just super fine with HIS tax payers being utilized (but not wasted, I'm sure) on all the money it's taking to support Melania & Barron in NYC, plus pay for Trump to fly to FL every single weekend, and pay for all of the security needed when he's down there.

Oh, I forget. Face to palm! Trump is "presidenting" while WHITE, not black. It's all good. Spend, spend, spend to support that alleged billionaire and his family in the style to which they wish to become accustomed.

That's why rightwing think tanks come up with the outrage du jour over Obama or just the usual LIEbruls... so RWD can indulge himself in his usual victimizing himself over Libruls... all the while the Oligarchs and conservatives are massively ripping him off. But: IOKIYAR, especially if you're a white so-called "Republican" like Trump (who was mostly a dreaded Democrat until he decided to run for office as a "Republican" bc he knew the uneducated would fall for his con).

The new defense I'm hearing from the Right is that Trump playing golf while president is *different*, see, because he's *working* while he plays golf.

Not like Obama, who was just lazy.

Yes, this is exactly how transparently pathetic the Right is.

I could really see Trump awarding himself a medal like this. And the excessive golfing & expensive travel, being too arrogant to listen to security briefings...Republicans now have the president who embodies so many of the things they imagined and 'feared' that Obama was doing. Karma is such a bitch.

MRW relatives have been very, very quiet about politics of late, Trump's disastrous doings must really be getting them down. Even the weekend bombing of Syria didn't perk them up. SAD.

Get 'em some Cymbalta, Thx 4 Fish.

RWD didn't complain when the DoD provided W with this award, but that's another example of IOKIYAR, especially if you're white.

I, too, have heard the "excuse" that Trump is "working" while on the golf course, so IOKIYAR and claim that you're "working." Clearly the Blah was, as usual, just lazy and feckless, so Obama's golfing was an affront to all concerned (especially those in all white KKKountry KKKlubs).

Same old, different day. Yet more distractions from how Trump and the rest of the Oligarchs are robbing us blind.
