It’s not really a big shocker to say those serving in the military aren’t big fans of Barack Obama, but when you see just how much our men and women in uniform despise their “Commander-In-Chief,” it will simply blow your mind.
This is astounding, yet for some strange reason, very comforting.
… The long-term effects of Obama’s social policies on the military remain unknown. But one thing is clear: He is a deeper unpopular commander in chief among the troops.
According to a Military Times survey of almost 2,300 active-duty service members, Obama’s popularity — never high to begin with — has crumbled, falling from 35 percent in 2009 to just 15 percent this year, while his disapproval ratings have increased to 55 percent from 40 percent over that time.
So I guess completely disrespecting the military by attempting to cut their pay raises, not awarding them certain benefits they need to cover their medical bills, and preventing them from receiving adequate healthcare takes a negative toll on how they perceive leadership.
Who would’ve thought?
Obama has repeatedly slammed our armed forces and through his many lawless actions has proven he’s not leadership material, nor does he possess qualities our troops can admire or look up to.
How can a man effectively lead the nation’s military if those under him don’t like him or trust him?
The simple answer is he can’t, which is why our foreign policy is a joke and our response to threats to our freedom and safety continue to go largely unchecked.
Let’s hope the next occupant of the Oval Office is someone who respects, reveres, and loves our military and can effectively perform the duties of their office to keep America safe.
