Bush Welcomes Home Returning Vets

You have just got to love the look on that  young soldier’s face as he sees and greets President Bush at the Dallas airport.  Say what you want about Bush, he truly does care for our military men and women.  More so than his successor, Barack Obama.

As you can see the military men just love George W. Bush, he truly was their commander-in-chief.

A spokesman for Bush, David Sherzer, said they were “honored” to take part in the welcome. “President Bush often says that he doesn’t miss much about being the President, but he does miss being the Commander in Chief of an incredible group of men and women”, he said.

To me,  this represents what an American president is supposed to be about-putting those who serve our country ahead of his own self interests. Bush met the soldiers at the Dallas airport and was a part of many organizations that were welcoming home the troops. It is a shame that our sitting president is doing just that-sitting on the sidelines. He should’ve been there with Bush  welcoming home returning vets.

Maybe he wasn’t there because he thinks that the vets are a threat to national security. As you can see from this picture he seems almost uncomfortable having to shake this man’s hand. Whereas, George Bush seems pleased to meet the troops returning home.

Obama continues to disgrace the position of commander in chief more and more each day. And while it is disheartening to see  Obama give aid to our enemies, it is good to know that there are still people who care for this country and what it represents. It is just too bad liberals are not one of them.
