I wouldn't show either. I would probably decline the medal too.
Only true when there is respect left in the office. O disrespected the office, the union and the Republic first.
It is too bad this person did not want the honor of being invited by the POTUS. It is his loss not Obama's.
good job...I wouldnt have went either.
Insofar as Captain Zero has no honor to lose, you are correct.
Serious question and no I'm not making a comparison, but Hitler was properly, duly elected in Germany.
Would your sentiments apply to him as well? "Ignore the ovens, respect the office."
Don't insult hitler by comparing him to obama.
Good for him.
It was a shame he had to accept that medal from that president in the first place. I'm sure he was gritting his teeth all the way. And Obama didn't exactly look like he was enjoying it when he presented the medal in the first place.
Nothing disrespectful about turning down a request. He was given the choice, he chose. And wisely.
obama couldn't be a pimple on a privates ass.
Never had and never will.
Good for him!
Would you explain this statement?
We know, and he knew, it's a photo op for him to be seated with the first lady, and he chose not to be a part of the propaganda. How is that his loss?
Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day
Hitler wasn't elected, he seized power.
An invitation is not a subpoena.
Let's use FW or FH and leave the great state of Florida out of it. Guilt by association and all.
Did he turn down the offer in a disrespectful way? In case you forget, one of those dudes has a MOH on his neck/chest. The only thing he is required to do now in life is to die peacefully, unfettered and unmolested by ceremony, politics /etc.
He did not lose anything. If none of those folks Obama invited had shown up, or called in sick at the very last minute, it would have been a major embarrassment for Obama.
Not everyone dotes on your anointed one.
Yeah just allow him to use you because he got a bunch of idiots to vote for him based on feeling good about themselves
We really don't know the reason why he opted out except that he wanted to spend time with his comrades. I know that he somewhat reluctantly received the Medal Of Honor indicating that it was really a team effort that day of the battle. I just think he decided not to make any more of his deeds that day by attending the speech and opted to spend time with his friends instead. It may not have been a political or moral statement at all. He is quite a man.
The article only says he chose to stay home with his wife, friends and family.
So where is there some courageous decision and standing by his principles, etc? Now he may not be a fan of the President, I don't know... but the article makes it sound like he simply had other plans that he preferred over being a guest at the address.
or am I missing something?
That said.. I don't think I could go either... and if asked about it, I'd make very clear why...
