Many believe that Hussein Obama doesnâ€™t much care for Americaâ€™s military personnel, or at a minimum doesnâ€™t sincerely appreciate their service.
One reality has helped to contribute to that perception is Obamaâ€™s failure to act to secure the release of Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican prison after making a wrong turn and ending up in the clutches of the enemy to our south.
Two 63-year-old retired Marines made it their personal mission to draw attention to the plight of Sergeant Tahmooressi in a manner which would be difficult for Hussein Obama to ignore.
Terry Sharpe started out alone almost three hundred miles to the south in his home of Summerfield, North Carolina. He was joined by Allen Brown in Danville, Virginia, and the two continued and completed the walk together.
Though the two men had never met before, it turns out that they served together in the same Marine battalion in Viet Nam, at the same time and place.
Today marked the 21st day of their march, and for the last leg they received a police escort up to the White House as well as the company of many supporters, most of them also frustrated by the lack of action to free an American service man.
When they arrived at the White House, Sharpe took a moment to read aloud a letter that he penned to Hussein Obama to the throng of supporters.
The letter read in part, â€œAs Marines we pledged long ago to never leave another Marine on the battlefield, and you have expressed this same sentiment as commander in chief. Our nation owes Sergeant Tahmooressi a debt of gratitude, and you have the ability to repay part of that debt by making one phone call.â€
â€œAs the most influential leader in the free world, one call from you to President Enrique PeÃ±a Nieto could surely spare Sergeant Tahmooressi and his family any more grief, and bring him home so he can receive the help he needs to allow him to lead a full and productive life.â€
The Marines then symbolically held their own cell phones up in the air to encourage the White House occupant to â€œmake the call.â€
Itâ€™s ironic that Hussein Obama is so proud of his phone, yet so reluctant to use it. He also often attempts to justify illegal or politically motivated actions by saying â€œitâ€™s the right thing to do,â€ yet here when making that call is clearly the right thing, he does nothing.
After the two men finished their comments another Marine led the group in prayer and they walked on a little further, to the Mexican embassy, a few blocks away.
They were met out front by a Mexican press representative who promised to deliver the message to their Ambassador, an official whose self-image is so grandiose that he uses five names to identify himself. For that reason, ambassador is sufficient.
The duo wonâ€™t be returning home just yet, though. They plan to attend hearings being held by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs regarding the case on October 1st.
Those hearings will include input from PTSD experts as well as Sgt Tahmooressiâ€™s mother Jill, Montel Williams and Rep Matt Salmon of Arizona.
As usual, the White House did not comment. After all, itâ€™s just the military and he, as an elite socialist community organizer, canâ€™t be bothered with the affairs of the insignificant rabble.
