Records Reveal Commander In Chief Has NEVER Deployed!

WASHINGTON, D.C. Ñ Ð President Barack Obama salutes U.S. Coast Guard members passing by the Inauguration Parade official review stand. The procession of more than 8,000 people that started at Constitution Avenue continued down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House included ceremonial military regiments, citizen groups, marching bands and floats. The President, Vice President, their spouses and special guests then review the parade as it passes in front of the Presidential Reviewing Stand. The stadium-style stage is erected for the inauguration on the west front of the Capitol. It has more than 1,600 seats for members of Congress, Supreme Court Justices, Governors, Foreign Ambassadors, military leaders, cabinet members, former presidents and the families of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. The 57th Presidential Inauguration was held in Washington D.C. on Monday, January 21, 2013. The Inauguration included the Presidential Swearing-in Ceremony, Inaugural Address, Inaugural Parade and numerous inaugural balls and galas honoring the elected President of the United States. During the 10-day inaugural period approximately 6,000 National Guard personnel from over 30 states and territories worked for Joint Task Force-District of Columbia, providing traffic control, crowd management, transportation, communication, medical and logistical support as well as marching in the Inaugural Parade. More than 13,000 Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve military members were involved in the inauguration. The presidential inaugural parade included members from all branches of the armed forces of the United States. Since 1789, the U.S. Armed Forces have participated in this important American tradition honoring our Commander in Chief. The parade is organized by the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region, and participants are selected by the Presidential Inaugural Committee. (Official U.S. Air Force photo by Technical Sgt.

WASHINGTON — An examination of personnel records obtained through a Freedom Of Information Act request revealed that the Commander in Chief of the entire United States military, Barack H. Obama, has never had a single deployment to a combat zone. The discovery comes hot on the heels of revelations about other high-profile politicians’ military issues, from Donald Trump’s Vietnam draft deferrals to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s questionable Air Force promotions.

“It’s true that the President has not deployed to any combat theaters in the Global War on Terror since his election,” White House Spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed. “But that’s only due to an accounting error at Human Resources Command which mistakenly rendered all White House personnel non-deployable. And once we discovered the error and corrected it, the President was totally, super excited about deploying. But then he got on a no-body-armor profile.”

“Because, like, his back and stuff,” added Earnest.

Asked when the President’s profile was up and he would be on deployable status again, Earnest changed the subject.

Active duty servicemembers have seized on the news, commenting about the Commander In Chief unfavorably.

“This guy sends me and my buddies into harm’s way, and hasn’t even heard shots fired in anger?” asked Lance Cpl. Justin Tice, a Marine White House Guard. “President Obama? More like ‘President Slick Sleeve.'”

“So, wait a tick,” commented Sgt. 1st Class Brittney Valcheck, a soldier deployed to Iraq in support of the non-combatant advisors to the Iraqi Army, who are totally not at all combatants, and are not conducting combat. “All I have to do to avoid a deployment is get appointed or elected to some Democrat delegation or office? And plus, I’ll get a free ticket to the Democrat National Convention with all the hot and cold running drugs and booze I can ingest? Hot damn, sign me up!”

Military history professors reacted by comparing President Obama to other Commanders In Chief who did, in fact, manage to deploy. Many Presidents went to war, but in the last century in particular, combat deployed Presidents included Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Johnson, and Bush Senior. Even President Carter, the historians conclude, tried to deploy, but his helicopter crashed en route to the fight.

    • Michael, the article is a spoof. I thought it was real at first too and was scratching my head. It’s poking fun at the people who waste their time trying to find something ever more outrageous to accuse the President of. A conservative relative of mine, of whom I am very fond, said indignantly a few years ago, “Did you hear what the Obamas are doing now? They’re trying to make our kids eat healthy food!” I started laughing, and so did she when she realized what she’d said.

      • Actually, only one POTUS ever deployed for combat, President Washington rode with the troops during the Whiskey Rebellion.
        He then withdrew to a warm house, as usual.
        History can be pretty funny, when phrased correctly and accurately. 😉
