"Out There Fighting on MY Behalf.."

    The President made reference to gay military members "..OUT THERE FIGHTING ON MY BEHALF.." and I was shocked that the reference was not,
    "OUT THERE FIGHTING ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE".

    I don't think I have ever heard him utter a more self-centered statement.

    Did anyone else hear it that way, or am I being overly critical?

    I certainly could be. I don't like him much.

    I'd like to see it in context, but I probably wouldn't get too worked up over it. He is supremely arrogant, but THIS incident could have just been a poor choice of words.

    The man is truly centered, self centered that is.

    Um, the troops are not his. They fight for all of us and America. This is not a case of semantics, this is a case of hubris.

    Delusional. His grasp of reality, specifically his lack of it, is showing.

    I think this is just more dividing the people of this country. I think this is a well calculated political move to cause more disruption, hate and strife. I think this is to take the focus off a failed presidency.

    WOW! THAT IS SHOCKING!

    Do you know what it means?

    If taken literally, Obama's statement means he thinks he's an AMERICAN.

    and we all know he's a Kenyan.
