A controversy has been started by this White House photograph that was taken against the wishes of the 19 of the 30 families and against Pentagon policy. It was posted yesterday on whitehouse.gov as the picture of the day. It clarifies the event for us all; it’s in fact not about the 38 individuals that died. It’s about Obama. About what a great leader he is and about how compassionate he is to make the pit stop before he goes on vacation while the debt continues to rise and more people lose their jobs.
This comes after the revelation that the movie about the Bin Laden Raid, the same raid containing some of the same members that died last weekend, will be released just a month before the 2012 Presidential Election. So while American hero’s fall Obama feels comfortable using their dead bodies as a stage to exclaim what an excellent president he is.
