My inbox has been filling up with emails about the First Lady’s little speech yesterday in which she told Americans that we, as Americans, don’t understand the military life;
“Unlike Jill, I wasn’t a military mom. I wasn’t a Blue Star family member. I didn’t know much about the military, and I was probably more like the average American,” said Obama.
She added that 99 percent of the nation takes the military’s service for granted. “Because when one percent of the country is serving and protecting the freedoms of the other 99 percent, it’s very easy for the other 99 percent to take that for granted.
And then she proved how ignorant she is about military life;
But, she added, life on the campaign trail felt like military life. “Dealing with everything that I was dealing with — a spouse traveling, a job, kids — we didn’t deal with multiple moves, but I learned about the challenges that happen when you move from base to base to base; the way your kids have to adjust on a dime. And doing it knowing that the person you love is in harm’s way.”
Yeah, we all remember how tough it was to be “in harm’s way” with only that thin line of Secret Service folks between us and the bad guys. The constant moving from 5-star hotel to 5-star hotel. It was Hell, I tell you. Hell. I get flashbacks from the hotel staff carrying my bags and smiling at me. And the tips, my God, the tips.
Given the way that the sports heroes, the Hollywood pretend-heroes and now the politicians compare their jobs to being in the military, I guess that they really don’t understand what being in the military is like. And they’re not ashamed to demonstrate how much they don’t understand. That’s bravery! they should all get medals for being unafraid to demonstrate their ignorance in public like that.
