The military just gave Barack Obama the collective middle finger as he prepares to leave the White House in just nine days.
Over 50% of our service members have an unfavorable opinion of the 44th president.
To be precise, the number is 51.5%.
From Conservative Tribune:
When applying for his next job, President Barack Obama might not want to ask the U.S. military for a reference. In a well-timed parting shot, service members just served up some cold rations for the departing president.
One of a president’s most important titles is commander in chief, and those whom he has been commanding have given him a less-than-stellar evaluation. A new survey showed that a majority of U.S. service members had an “unfavorable” view of President Obama and his eight years in the White House, according to Fox News.
In an online survey of 1,664 active-duty respondents, Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families found that 51.5 percent of service members had an unfavorable view of Obama’s presidency, Military Times reported.
Seventy-one percent said the military needed more personnel than authorized by Obama in conjunction with Congress, according to U.S. News. A clear majority said Obama’s withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq and Afghanistan have made America less safe.
These numbers reflect the military presidential vote: Nearly 49 percent of service members who voted in the November election cast their ballots for President-elect Donald Trump, while only 29 percent voted for former Obama Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
When the commander-in-chief is not respected by the men and women he sends into dangerous situations, something’s up.
You think Obama will hang his head about these poor numbers?
Neither do I.
