Allen West Wants Obama to Apologize to Our Warriors - And to Quit Hogging SEAL Limelight

More from my wish-he-were-a-candidate, Rep. Allen West:

President Obama believes that healthcare should be free for his union cronies and entitlement-centered political base..... But not for those exceptional Men and Women who serve or have served to keep us free.

It is unconscionable, utterly disrespectful, and obviously evidences the disdain the Obama administration has for our Warriors, to whom he should apologize.


And...

I agree with President Obama that he does not bluff, he prefers apologizing.... I appreciate President Obama's desire to seem tough but so far it has only resulted in the expansion of radical Islamist dominance in the middle east. And please stop with the Osama Bin Laden line, US Navy SEALS double-tapped that rascal.

Oh, yesssss....

Word on the Afghan streets is that the rioting wasn't the result of spontaneous, local anti-American sentiments, it was initiated by Karzai's political foes who are trying to make him look weak. The riots and shootings are only happening in areas with *large* blocs of voters -- in the smaller cities and towns, there were one or two peaceful, half-hour protests outside FOB gates, then everyone went home.

Of course, Obie will now claim that his apology was only aimed at the rural population, and so it must have worked...

Oh, and Mr. Commander-in-Chief? While you're in an apologetic mood, could you please apologize to everyone in uniform (and everyone who wore one for an honorable career) for proposing to raise our Tricare premiums by 75% in 2015 and then by 345% in 2016 and a further 345% in 2021?

I don't think that's the qualifying demographic for an Obama apology. At the very least, you should be a foreign national, and probably opposed to the U.S., for starters...

Actually, those are probably the only prerequisites for an O-pology -- he appears to believe we've spent the past 236 years oppressing everyone else on the planet.

I'm still betting he'll eventually apologize to Japan for shooting down their aircraft during that Pearl Harbor overflight on December 7th of '41...

I'd say, "don't give him any ideas!" but I have an odd feeling that it's on his Obie-do list....

I agree with President Obama that he does not bluff...

True. In order to bluff successfully, your opponent must believe you have the will to follow through in the event that things go sour.

When things go sour for Obie, he just heads for the golf course or takes another week-long vacation -- he's averaging one every two months...

Is that all? Poor guy. He deserves more vay-cays. After all, he is the Royal Prince Obie.
