US News and World Report, by Kenneth T. Walsh

Original Article

President Barack Obama will leave office on Jan. 20 with negative reviews from most members of the U.S. military. More than half the troops in a new poll had an unfavorable opinion of Obama´s leadership of the military for the past eight years, and about 36 percent said they approved of his performance as commander in chief, according to the latest survey by the Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.

The real story here is the fact that 36% of military members actually approve of Obama! I don´t think that I want these people protecting the country if they are that deaf, dumb, blind and stupid!

I HOPE they hold a negative view. They should. Professionally the military is not supposed to criticiae. However, like everyone else in our society, they are reluctant to criticize out of fear of being labled a racist.




Reply 3 - Posted by: Pinger, 1/9/2017 3:00:51 PM     (No. 11101484)

Yes, what´s worrisome about this story is that 36% of our military people have no understanding of the mission of the military.

That´s because it has become in many ways a social experiment and a welfare agency: the single moms who can now enlist, etc.

How does the 36% correlate to the % of blacks in the military?

Reply 6 - Posted by: dvc, 1/9/2017 3:28:45 PM     (No. 11101548)

#1 beat me to it. That was my take on the article.

It isn´t news that the military doesn´t like Obama, but it is shocking that 36% approve of him.

I don´t believe the numbers for a minute. My son was a naval officer for most of 0bama´s tenure. My judgment from his and his colleagues (somewhat guarded ) comments was that the number could be as high as 80%, at least in the Officer ranks.

They should ask veterans what they think of Obama. Hussein hasn´t lifted a finger to help vets in his 8 long years.

Reply 9 - Posted by: bobn.t, 1/9/2017 3:52:27 PM     (No. 11101591)

I think 36% was pulled out of the air.
Here in Colorado Springs (Fort Carson, Peterson AFB, Schriever AFB, Cheyenne Mtn AFS, and the USAF Academy), Obama is despised, ridiculed, and viewed as an international fool. I have never heard any military member speak favorably of him.

Reply 10 - Posted by: watashiyo, 1/9/2017 3:52:30 PM     (No. 11101592)

36% are mostly low ranking Lo-Fo and only in the military for entitlements. Not that difficult to explain.

Reply 11 - Posted by: chumley, 1/9/2017 4:01:58 PM     (No. 11101606)

I have the opposite guess as #10. If we can believe the 36% number, I suspect it is officers watching out for their careers.
Back in the Klinton days I remember one (and only one) senior NCO who was a Klinton supporter even behind closed doors. He went into complete meltdown when Bush won and retired shortly thereafter.

I agree with posters #7 and #9. Lets not forget to consider the source - AssPress.

I do too. My view is very negative. I think he is the devil. Certainly looks like it.

Reply 14 - Posted by: strike3, 1/9/2017 4:54:35 PM     (No. 11101676)

Obama has done nothing for the military except weed out the good senior officers, rob all Iraq and Afghanistan veterans of victories on the battlefield and force upon them gays, traitors, bisexuals, transgenders and dangerous muslims. Those who allegedly support him are either clueless, extremely stupid or regard race above competence.

Reply 15 - Posted by: Vesicant, 1/9/2017 4:57:27 PM     (No. 11101678)

"Leadership"? What leadership?

Reply 16 - Posted by: GO3, 1/9/2017 6:31:30 PM     (No. 11101773)

The 36% matches pretty well with 33% of the military voting for zippy in 2012. And I agree with #10.

A man identified as a mentally disturbed Army veteran with voices in his head urging him to join ISIS opened fire inside the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., airport Friday, killing five and injuring eight others in a scene of total chaos.“At first, we thought it was firecrackers,” witness Mark Lea, 53, told MSNBC of the afternoon attack at the busy Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. “Everyone started screaming and running.” The lone gunman, identified as 26-year-old Esteban Santiago, reloaded his weapon twice as he sprayed bullets near the baggage-claim carousels in Terminal 2’s lower level at around 1 p.m.

Email Headache Returns: New Clinton messages

The election’s over – but Hillary Clinton’s emails are still coming to light. And they help illustrate why the FBI declared she was “extremely careless” with the information flowing across her secret server. A new batch of messages released by the State Department on Tuesday shows the former secretary of state and her team routinely shared her upcoming schedules, talking points and sensitive items – such as her iPad password – via the homebrewed system. Other newly revealed emails, which were posted as the result of litigation, show Clinton’s top advisers griping about her during her time as secretary of State; an

It’s been a roller coaster year for Fox News. If you have been reading TVNewser at all this year, you know why. But all of the off-camera controversies never negatively impact viewership. In fact, celebrating its 20th year on cable, Fox News finished 2016 as the most-watched basic cable network in prime time and total day, a first for the network.“As we close out our 20th year, Fox News continues to redefine television news and break ratings records, proving it is indeed the most watched and most trusted television news source in the country,”



‘Abandoned’ in New Jersey, Chris Christie
Returns to a Changed Landscape

Chris Christie’s job approval is at a career low. Nearly three-quarters of New Jersey voters, and half his fellow Republicans, said in a recent poll that he should have been a defendant in the trial over the George Washington Bridge lane closings, in which two of his former aides were convicted last month. And in a stinging turnabout, Bill Stepien, the campaign manager whom Mr. Christie dismissed in the so-called Bridgegate scandal, is expected to become Donald J. Trump’s White House political director, while Mr. Christie was fired as transition chief and shut out of jobs in Mr. Trump’s administration, despite having

While there are few actually confirmed details as of now, there´s apparently a massive, star-studded "We The People" concert being planned for Miami on the day of Donald Trump´s inauguration. The idea is to counter Trump´s inauguration and garner higher television ratings than the swearing-in. Normally, the presidential inaugurals carry several a-list acts, but Trump has had issues booking artists to perform. So far, the only confirmed acts are Jackie Evancho (singing the National Anthem), the Rockettes, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Rumored artists include Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Elton John. [...]To add insult to injury, concert promoter Mark

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ´Hillary lover´ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect. Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars. She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ´broke her heart´ as Streep labelled it the year´s most stunning performance. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he had not seen Streep´s speech or the Golden Globes coverage. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I

She is among the most famous and easily recognized women in the world, but first lady Michelle Obama feels "invisible" when she steps off her official stage, according to her best friend and ally in the White House. And the reason is a remarkable one considering that she and her husband, President Obama, are America´s first African-American presidential couple. According to top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama is invisible because she is black. In her new book about the importance of black mothers in America and how they walk a tightrope in society, White House correspondent April Ryan revealed that Jarrett

President Barack Obama taunted Republican lawmakers Friday as they prepared to gut his "signature legislative achievement" ObamaCare. During an online interview with left-wing White House echo-chamber "explainer" website Vox, Obama snidely said that he would publicly support repealing "Obamacare" if Republicans could come up with something better, but expressed doubt that the GOP would be able to manage it. "Now is the time that Republicans have to go ahead and show their cards," the president said. "If in fact, they have a program that would genuinely work better, and they want to call it whatever they want -- they can

The Gold Star father who blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic convention this summer is returning to the national stage this week, firing off a letter demanding the Senate reject Sen. Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My

When when Wikileaks released information during the Bush years about the Iraq War that was embarrassing to the administration, that put our troops at risk most Democrats condemned it, some celebrated it. Most Republicans are condemning what Russia did and to those who are gleeful it you’re a political hack. You’re not a
