In August of 1934, members the Wehrmacht were required to recite a Reichswehreid, an oath of personal allegiance to Adolf Hitler. This oath ignored God and country but swore an oath to a man, Adolf Hitler. The soldiers were to fight and die on the behalf of the dear leader. Such loyalty oaths originated in ancient Rome and have been repeated throughout history and to different tyrants.
It is a rumor that Obama wishes the members of the American military would swear an oath to him over God and the Constitution. But in his narcissist mindset, he truly believes the military serves at his whim. In an ABC interview concerning his flip-flop on Gay marriage he said “when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone,”
Members of the US Armed Forces swear an oath to the Constitution and not to a man. They are required to follow the orders of the President and Officers according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, but they act to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Even orders from the President must be lawful because the men and women of the armed forces don’t serve on his behalf. The idea of service members fighting on his behalf is a Freudian slip from a narcissist that has an out of control sense of omnipotence that even Dr. Phil couldn’t miss. He is using the world’s best military to pander to the homosexuals.
Accepting responsibility? Never happened!
Obama cannot accept responsibility for anything negative. He lacks the character to accept consequences but will gladly shine in the light of success even when he had nothing to do with it. It was reported that Leon Panetta wrote a memo absolving Obama of all responsibly if the Obama raid went wrong. After all, the President was playing golf when the mission started. When the mission was successful, the Narcissist-In-Chief was more than ready to take all of the glory for sending SEAL Team Six to kill bin Laden on “his behalf” to garner votes for his reelection.
