Democrats don't even know what our troops look like

To show their support for the military in next year's election, Democrats showed a picture of President Obama with veterans with the caption: “commitment to America’s veterans.”

The veterans were members of the Polish Military.

There is a Polish joke in here somewhere.

From the Military Times:
Democrats’ election outreach efforts to veterans may need to start with a refresher course on what U.S. troops look like.
For starters, they don’t wear Polish military uniforms.
Until Thursday, the Democratic National Committee’s “Veterans and Military Families” website had as its only picture a shot from White House photographers during President Obama’s visit to Warsaw in 2011.
The president had been cropped out, but faces of four elderly veterans wearing European-style military uniforms were visible above several paragraphs asserting the party’s “commitment to America’s veterans.” The Polish military’s White Eagle insignia was clear on the headgear of two of the veterans.
While largely harmless, the error points to a common complaint among U.S. veterans groups about the lack of knowledge of many Americans about military life, tradition and challenges.
The original image was posted in several White House photo streams and is captioned only as Obama visiting the Warsaw Tomb of the Unknown Soldier “with veterans,” likely leading to the mistake.
The Polish Army was part of the Warsaw Pact nations allied against the United States, Canada, and Western Europe during the Cold War. It's nice top know that Democrats are supportive of at least one group of military veterans, comrade.


  1. Remember this is the party whose leader called a Navy Corpsman a "corpse-man".

  2. The Poles HATE the Russkis. Works for me. The AGAINST me.

  3. Incredible. We see this time and time again. I recall one time they had a Canadian soldier identified as a US soldier.

  4. And then there's the inability to realize there's a difference between a squad, platoon, company, battalion, brigade, and division. And you'll find no Lieutenant Commanders in the US Army, AF or Marines. And Airmen, National Guardsmen, and students aren't exactly Marines, even when they DO take down a terrorist sonovabitch.

    1. Yes, but think what that S.O.B.s life would have ended like if it had been Marines on the train.
      jk. They are all American girls and American boys whether they wear the uniform of the Navy, Marines, Air Force, Army, or serve part time but always on call as members of our National Guard and Reserve. Men and Women committed to protecting our freedom. Asking a liberal to understand that is like teaching quantum physics to a garden slug.

  5. Democrats think those are the polls we kept hearing about in the run up to the last few elections. You know, the ones who were WRONG!

  6. The Dims displayed a military montage at the '12 convention to show how much they care about veterans. It included foreign warships.

    1) Obama in particular and the Dimocrats in general surround themselves with incompetent sycophants. Loyalty is the currency of the realm. Competence is a negative as it leads to independent thinking.

    2) They really, really, really hate the military. Whether by intent or subconsciously, they avoid any display that may show it in a good light.

  7. Democrats tell Obama to have talks with Russia on Syria. Read interesting news on truth out
