Here's a photo of President Obama doing something that neither Preznit Dumbya nor The Dick had the guts or decency to do: receive the bodies of servicemen killed in either Iraq or Afghanistan. It's called taking responsibility and paying respects. As the Commander-in-Chief, the President is ultimately responsible for our armed forces, and bears the burden of sending them into harm's way. It's one thing to send them off with flags waving and bands playing; it's another thing to accept the consequences of the decisions that you make, and honor the fallen when they return. Obama has.
Expect wingnuts everywhere to find some excuse to criticize this action by the President. But the fact remains, Dumbya and The Dick weren't willing to put themselves with the fallen soldiers as Obama has.
