    Obama Awards Self Distinguished Service Medal

    President Obama Awards Himself Distinguished Public Service Medal
    by Warner Todd Huston4 Jan 2017





    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.

    And Trump's the narcissist.

    IMO, he also needs the Extinguished Service Medal...held on with a safety pin.

    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    What an Ass!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    I did too when I saw the title. We've come to the point where nothing surprises us with Obama.

    Obama has demeaned the honor, but then, well, demeaning America is his legacy
