Obama accepting a Nobel Peace Prize was one of the most foolish acts of his entire Presidency. Even the most uniformed person in the country was asking, “He did? For WHAT?!?” The award was technically for “reaching out” to Muslim world. It destroyed all of Obama’s credibility as a grounded politician and it severely curtailed any of his actual foreign policy initiatives when it became clear that the utter illusion of progress was all well and good for our outgoing President.
This new medal…well… I have no idea what he is doing. It might be a pro-forma type of award, and Obama probably deserves this one. However, it comes off as surreptitious and asinine and will only increase the amount of amusement the public are having at President Obama’s expense.
Breitbart – On Wednesday, President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.
Secretary Carter awarded his boss with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.
Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported.
After spending the last few weeks throwing roadblocks in the path of President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, Obama nonetheless claimed in his remarks to the members of the military in attendance that “We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity.”
Along with the AP, CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller also marked the ceremony with a Tweet to his followers.
Many commenters on Knoller’s Twitter feed were incredulous at the award. Some likened the award to a much maligned “participation medal” and others were skeptical of Obama’s underling giving his own boss a medal.
