    As the photo shows, Obama wasn't even sitting in the commander's chair.

    Have you ever been on a Navy warship ? Unless the Navy has been dumbed down, the only person who could ever sit in the Captain's chair on the bridge was the captain.

    He's in the situation room being briefed and he's leaning forward like he's actually paying attention to what's being said. Yes, I can understand where Shrub lovers could misinterpret that. I doubt Georgie Porgie ever paid real attention to anything except his beer or his Bible.

    Yes, I'm sure you can find a virtually unlimited number of sites taking words out of context to smear the President. Shrub didn't and doesn't need words out of context, he's an idiot and always was an idiot. I'm glad he went slinking back to his village after starting a fake war, turning most of the world against us, and killing the economy in his final act of the play.

Now look at Obama's face in the W.H. photo op, he looks clueless. His only concern is getting reelected. He's not even sitting in the chair he's suppose to be sitting in.

    Obama never issued an order. Obama just signed off on the raid. That memo is just that, a memo. If you have served in the military you would know what a directive looks like and what an order looks like. They aren't hand written. They all look like they came from a teletype machine. All upper case letters.

    Then after the raid, Obama ignored the chain of command for his own political gain. Obama went on national television before the SEAL's could be debriefed and before an "After Action Report" could have been typed up and worked it's way up through there chain of command. Ignoring the chain a command is a big no no from a low ranking private to the Commander in Chief.

    FYI:
    When dealing with the military, POTUS is the Commander in Chief not the "Chief Executive Officer." Executive Officers in the military chain of command aren't the Commanding Officers. They are usually second in command.

    There's the Executive Branch of Government that President Obama is suppose to be responsible for. In the real world if Obama were a CEO in the private sector, the Board of Directors would have fired Obama as CEO for being incompetent, probably around June of 2009.

    It's Navy SEAL's, it's an acronym for Sea, Air, and Land. All upper case letters.
    That's fine. I'll let you continue believing what Alex Jones is spewing.

    As if one could get any honesty about the topic from the Biased Lame Stream Media.

    So your position is that Obama is adored and respected in international leadership? Prove it.

    Adored? No clue. Respected? One way or another, yes. If nothing else he's the leader of the biggest gorilla on the block.


    You've already proved it. You're the one that convinced me with our evidence. - the Gallop poll you, yourself, posted as a reference. And obviously you accept that source or you wouldn't have posted it in the first place. Here, I'll post that reference one more time:

    Yes, we talk of little else.

    Its a staged photo-Obama has his own personal photographers take staged photos-and then he releases them to the media if he wants to.

    Obama isn't in charge, he leads from behind.
