I am hoping that our president is just making another flub but some of them are becoming quite concerning. I mean the media never gave Bush a single pass on any dumb ass thing he said, but any dumb ass thing that the glorious one makes is ignored, hidden, or forgotten about. And now that I have criticized him I am a racist monster, more likely to commit an Emmett Till style lynching than engage in rational discourse, but that is the price you pay for expressing political thought that doesn’t agree with the man. However, we must examine these flubs, of which I am talking about the speech he gave on Syria the other day when he said, I’ve got “my military” looking at it.
I’m sorry, when did this become your military? I’ve now heard you say the problem with America is that you’re the President and not the emperor, and now the military that protects the people of the United States is yours? No sir. The military belongs to the people, the country, not any one man. I suppose if the military was privately paid for it could be his for a tidy sum, but wait, the taxpayers are all over that one, not you pres.
Do the men and women of the military swear allegiance to you? Not a chance, the enlisted promise to faithfully carry out your orders according to the regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the officers swear allegiance to the Constitution. Neither of those make the military yours. Maybe it is yours to command with the expressed approval of Congress, but that is a far cry from what you said, “my military.”
So maybe the president should swallow his narcissism fix his freudian slip and start actually governing instead of knee jerking to every event that happens. You’re the president of the free world, act like it!
