General Obama.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:53 pm

PRS was there when Barack _______ Obama, freshman Senator and former community activist, delivered a speech to the troops in Iraq in which he spoke extensively about the redeployment of several combat brigades as part of his plan for withdrawing from Iraq. At the conclusion of his speech, he invited questions.

PFC: Sir, my name is Private First Class Edward Andrews, and I was wondering if you know which is larger – a brigade or a battalion?

B_O: I don’t think that’s the issue. The important issue facing this country is the need to end this war and take the fight to Afghanistan, where the real enemy is.

PFC: Sir, do you know which is larger – a squad or a platoon?

B_O: Again, that’s not important. What is important is that we use the military effectively. Any more questions?

PFC: No, sir. I’ve heard enough.


  1. Okay, that was hilarious. I bet John McCain can tell the difference, or at least the difference between an flight and a squadron.

    On the other hand, I’m currently reading two books on the 6th marines in WW1 so maybe the comparison isn’t fair.

    And I loved the ball dance and am passing it on to Built On Facts.

  2. This may explain why he kept referring to people using ranks/ratings from different services, too…

  3. This reminds me of the woman on “Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader” who selected “elephant” when queried, “Which is larger, an elephant or the Moon.”

  4. Erica…..

    Obama would have selected the moon as he would have said he was accustomed to circling it with other moonbats & never see any elephants up there or for that matter the cow that allegedly jumped over it.
