OBAMA PR MORE IMPORTANT THAN DEAD HEROES PRIVACY
A picture was released on The White House website showing Obama saluting with the official White House position on why the requests of the families for complete privacy were ignored being, "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."
Obama has gone to Dover for the return of lost heroes twice and BOTH times a photo was released for public relations reasons showing Obama paying his respects and BOTH times it was in complete DISRESPECT, ignoring to the wishes of families and military policy preventing photographs of the return of fallen heroes. There are hundreds of public relations possibilities a President can use at any time yet Obama's handlers with, I am sure, the full knowledge and approval of Obama chose to disrespect fallen heroes and families for a cheap PR opportunity to try and portray Obama as a concerned Commander in Chief.
The return of fallen heroes is NOT an opportunity for cheap publicity or used to promote any agenda or politician. These heroes gave their lives to protect and defend this Nation and deserve the complete respect and honor that our country can afford them for what they have done. To use it as a PR photo op is an insult to their memory and a disgusting display of an arrogant politician who cares only for making an image rather than respecting the sacrifice of fallen heroes.
This is not the action of a Commander in Chief who is showing respect for the sacrifice of the best and bravest of our country but an arrogant child who will use anything and anyone for self promotion and self indulgence to boost his perceived image. He again proves he is a disgrace to our country and an embarrassment to all that we stand for as a Nation.
