Obama at the Air Force Academy Graduation Ceremony
Hi All,
I just wanted to pass on a little info in case some of you were not aware of this. Yesterday was the Air force Academy graduation ceremony. My friend from Texas had just arrived and we drove down the road to watch the Thunderbirds fly over after the ceremony was finished. Most of you know Pres. Obama spoke at the ceremony and handed out the diploma's. When this finished it was time for the Thunderbirds to fly-over. There was one fly-over then they disappeared. A man standing by me called a friend at Peterson Field and found out that the fly-over was halted because Obama wanted to leave. A helicopter soon appeared and flew around in a circular pattern above where we were - basically doing reconnesance as Obama's motor-cade was exiting the Air Force Academy.
He was going to Denver to do some more campaigning since Colorado is a swing state. After he left the Thunderbirds came back and continued the show for the graduates. Think about this. Obama comes to a graduation, speaks etc. then decides to leave before the Thunderbird's can complete their fly-over. They had to fly around, & waste fuel. Thousands of people - the graduating cadets, parents, friends, observers in the vicinity parked in lots waiting to see them fly, inconvenienced, so Obama - his "highness' could leave to go campaign in Denver! How disrespectful of EVERYONE in attendance. It would have taken only about 20-30 minutes more time to stay until the fly-over was finished thereby honoring the graduates, Thunderbirds and the military in general. However, this narcissistic disgrace of a 'Commander -in-Chief" had to inconvenience everyone and leave interrupting the ceremony fly-over because everything is about him. I was disgusted by this and so was everyone else standing around near us. I hope this info gets passed on so others can learn how disrespectful this Pres. is toward the military. Not too many who witnessed this will be voting for him.


  1. I think he is a disrespecting Commie, Muslim. I think he has no respect for America, or our men and women in uniform.

    1. AMEN! Gosh, I hope Homeland Security doesn't confiscate my computer for using that religious word. That man in the White House is a buffoon...and makes a mockery of the fine men who previously held that office. Please, God, let the people of this wonderful country send him packing in November.

  2. I guess it doesn't matter that this happens EVERY year. The T-birds fly over immediately after the cadets throw their caps in the air and the President (or whoever is giving the diplomas out) states "You are dismissed". It is a perfectly timed maneuver. Then they go and hold for 30 minutes or so during the Chaos where each cadet usually goes to sit with his family in a stadium where 25K+ people are attending. They then watch the ceremony while sitting with their parents.

    There have been cases where Presidents or the Commanding General has stayed, especially when one has a son or daughter graduating or at the Academy. Presidents are usually now departed during this time for force protection as the stadium is closed and it is easier for the Secret Service to protect the departure.

    The Religious Right... the party of lies.

  3. Yet I remember the rule I set for myself-that I do something different from my mother. . . I started to believe I couldn't really do that if I was following in the path of either of my parents... That so-called rule helped me separate more fully from my mother and father, I realize, but maybe it also kept me from seeing what was right in front of me. Flights to Windhoek
    Flights to Abidjan
