” Second Lieutenant Daniel K. Inouye distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action on 21 April 1945, in the vicinity of San Terenzo, Italy. While attacking a defended ridge guarding an important road junction, Second Lieutenant Inouye skillfully directed his platoon through a hail of automatic weapon and small arms fire, in a swift enveloping movement that resulted in the capture of an artillery and mortar post and brought his men to within 40 yards of the hostile force. Emplaced in bunkers and rock formations, the enemy halted the advance with crossfire from three machine guns. With complete disregard for his personal safety, Second Lieutenant Inouye crawled up the treacherous slope to within five yards of the nearest machine gun and hurled two grenades, destroying the emplacement. Before the enemy could retaliate, he stood up and neutralized a second machine gun nest. Although wounded by a sniper’s bullet, he continued to engage other hostile positions at close range until an exploding grenade shattered his right arm. Despite the intense pain, he refused evacuation and continued to direct his platoon until enemy resistance was broken and his men were again deployed in defensive positions. In the attack, 25 enemy soldiers were killed and eight others captured. By his gallant, aggressive tactics and by his indomitable leadership, Second Lieutenant Inouye enabled his platoon to advance through formidable resistance, and was instrumental in the capture of the ridge. Second Lieutenant Inouye’s extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit on him, his unit, and the United States Army.”

Instead He Spoke Of His Favorite Topic Of Conversation … Himself 

 

 

 

 

” You know when you’re talking about a Medal of Honor winner and the highest ranked Asian elected official, there might be a few other topics to talk about then your own vacation memories, but well, Obama loves his vacations. He doesn’t love much else, but he sure loves his vacations. And talking about himself.

And Obama combined his two great passions, vacations and talking about himself, in true classy style at Senator Inouye’s funeral.

“Now, even though my mother and grandparents took great pride that they had voted for him, I confess that I wasn’t paying much attention to the United States Senate at the age of four or five or six.  It wasn’t until I was 11 years old that I recall even learning what a U.S. senator was, or it registering, at least.”

Death must be a truly horrifying phenomenon for Obama. Other people at least take comfort in knowing that their country and their family will go on, but for Obama there is nothing else. Everything only exists in relation to him in a completely solipsistic universe.

Senator Inouye only exists in relation to Obama. ”

 

 

 

 “Special Iowahawk Guest Commentary
By Barack Obama, Stargazer-in-Chief

” When I learned of the untimely passing of Neil Armstrong I was, like all Americans, deeply moved and saddened. I share your sense of loss for this American hero, even if his fame had been eclipsed by others over the years. But in our shared moment of grief, let us also celebrate his historic accomplishment in becoming the first astronaut eulogized by me, Barack Obama, our nation’s historic first African-American president.

Neil’s passing gives all of us all pause to consider deeper questions. What does it mean for the future of space exploration? How proud would Neil have been to have a famous historic president refer to him by first name? And, most importantly, how did his death inspire that historic president to make ever more gigantic leaps for mankind?”

Astronomical Ego

Obama Remembers Neil Armstrong with a Big Picture of… Himself

 

 

Elizabeth Scalia :

  “The Heritage Foundation’s Rory
Cooper tweeted that Obama had
casually dropped his own name into
Ronald Reagan’s official biography on http://www.whitehouse.gov, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick. ”

Give him credit , he has a stratospheric sense of self-importance .

  “…it turns out Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge . . . ”

As Elizabeth says , ” He is such a small and insecure man “

This man has to go . Obama represents the height of the ” I , me , mine ” generation . What’s good for him is good , period . The rest of the world be damned . Just more of that  ” smart diplomacy ” we were promised .

“The Obama administration was seemingly so thirsty for credit when a recent al Qaeda plot in Yemen was thwarted that it quickly coughed up operational secrets to the media —compromising several investigations in the process. ”

Self-serving bastards ,

” The operation was blown, the agent had to be withdrawn —and the CIA’s window into al Qaeda in Yemen was slammed shut.

“This was gold dust,” a senior intelligence official said. “Such assets are few and far between.”

Witness the differences in style , class , humility and emphasis exhibited by our leaders , both past and present , while speaking of the monumental events of their days , Courtesy of Michael Mukasey at WSJ :

Obama on the killing of Bin Laden :

I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority . . . even as I continued our broader effort. . . . Then, after years of painstaking work by my intelligence community I was briefed . . . I met repeatedly with my national security team . . . And finally last week I determined that I had enough intelligence to take action. . . . Today, at my direction . . .”   

Notice a pattern ?

George Bush on the capture of Saddam Hussein :

 “a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq.” He (GWB) attributed it to “the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator’s footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers. . . . Their work continues, and so do the risks.”

“He did mention himself at the end: “Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate them.” “

Dwight D Eisenhower on the landings at Normandy :

 “One week ago this morning there was established through your coordinated efforts our first foothold in northwestern Europe. High as was my preinvasion confidence in your courage, skill and effectiveness . . . your accomplishments . . . have exceeded my brightest hopes.”

  “Eisenhower did mention himself at the end: “I truly congratulate you upon a brilliantly successful beginning. . . . Liberty loving people everywhere would today like to join me in saying to you, ‘I am proud of you.'”

 

Read the whole thing . Mr Mukasey offers a fine insight into the mind of the current Oval Office occupant and how much it differs from what we expect in a man of quality , grace , humility and strength . 

 

Below I include a couple more that weren’t in the linked article , demonstrating I think , the same idea .

 

Ronald W Reagan on missile strikes against Gaddafi in response to proof of Libyan involvement with terror strikes :

  “We Americans are slow to anger. We always seek peaceful avenues before resorting to the use of force—and we did. We tried quiet diplomacy, public condemnation, economic sanctions, and demonstrations of military force. None succeeded. Despite our repeated warnings, Qadhafi continued his reckless policy of intimidation, his relentless pursuit of terror. He counted on America to be passive. He counted wrong. I warned that there should be no place on Earth where terrorists can rest and train and practice their deadly skills. I meant it. I said that we would act with others, if possible, and alone if necessary to ensure that terrorists have no sanctuary anywhere. Tonight, we have.”
