I just wanted to pass on a little info in case some of you were not aware of this. Yesterday was the Air force Academy graduation ceremony.
My friend from Texas had just arrived and we drove down the road to watch the Thunderbirds fly over after the ceremony was finished. Most of you know President Obama spoke at the ceremony and handed out the diploma's. When this finished it was time for the Thunderbirds to fly-over. There was one fly-over then they disappeared. A man standing by me called a friend at Peterson Field and found out that the fly-over was halted because Obama wanted to leave.
A helicopter soon appeared and flew around in a circular pattern above where we were - basically doing reconnesance as Obama's motorcade was exiting the Air Force Academy. [o'campaigner-in-chief] He was going to Denver to do some more campaigning since Colorado is a swing state. After he left the Thunderbirds came back and continued the show for the graduates. Think about this. Obama comes to a graduation, speaks etc. then decides to leave before the Thunderbirds can complete their fly-over. They had to fly around & waste fuel.
Thousands of people - the graduating cadets, parents, friends, observers in the vicinity parked in lots waiting to see them fly, inconvenienced, so Obama - his "highness' could leave to go campaign in Denver! How disrespectful of EVERYONE in attendance. It would have taken only about 20-30 minutes more time to stay until the fly-over was finished thereby honoring the graduates, Thunderbirds and the military in general. However, this narcissistic disgrace of a 'Commander-in-Chief" had to inconvenience everyone and leave interrupting the ceremony fly-over because everything is about him.
I was disgusted by this and so was everyone else standing around near us. I hope this info gets passed on so others can learn how disrespectful this President is toward the military. Not too many who witnessed this will be voting for him.
