President Macho: Obama dons bomber jacket, conservatives not impressed

Just call him Iceman.

No doubt finding it increasingly difficult to be taken seriously, President Obama is trying to win the nation’s respect by donning a bomber jacket. But conservatives aren’t feeling the macho act:

Nah. Consistency isn’t exactly the Left’s strong suit.

We’d go to the photo of Obama in the Benghazi situation room, but there isn’t one.

And the threads are unraveling.

    As a Vet, it makes me sick to see this man in any part, or semblance of, a military uniform.

    • James Atkins

      I can only imagine. I was never in the service, but my parents were so I grew up around it. It’s pretty messed up he would even do it, I mean, the total lack of respect is just mind boggling.

    • Dan Thorpe

      God Bless you Chip, nothing but respect for our Armed forces. No respect for a “President” that does nor respect you guys

    • Penmar

      You are so right, Chip, not only did he not build that, he didn’t earn it either.

    • Cyborg0012

      Thank you for your service. It is a terrible insult to you and all vets.

      LMFAO! Wait wait, so now you’re saying only Veterans can wear bomber jackets? Somebody better tell EVERY CLOTHING STORE IN THE NATION that they’re doing something bad according to “Chip”. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    By Monday, he will be doing campaign stops in the full Idi Amin military regalia…

    • James Atkins

      And Baghdad Bob will be setting up his victory celebration on Tuesday.

    wow. a leather members only jacket.

  • Danny Wheeler

    O-Bozo isn’t fooling anybody!

  • Jim Wafwot

    Bush was excoriated for wearing a flight suit in 2003… But the MSM is afraid to criticize this narcissistic amateur, and the kool-aid drinkers refuse to remove their blinders. God save us if we’re forced to endure another four years.

    • Jim Denney

      Yeah, but that darn Bush was a real pilot … oh wait.

  • Steve_J

    “Just call him Iceman.”. I was thinking more like call him “Cougar” who lost it and turned in his wings.

    • WingedBishop

      I’m thinking the character “Wash Out” from Hot Shots!

  • Purple State

    He’s been wearing this jacket for at least two years. Twitchy always has its fingers on the pulse!

    • Pete Futz

      You are right…the dumbass has lots of costumes. He likes to play “dress up”!

      • Purple State

        So did Dubya, Clinton and H.W. They were all photographed wearing the same thing. Ask Google Image.

        • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

          The difference being of course, ‘Dubya’ and his father were both pilots…and earned the right to wear them. The last two Dems…not so much.

          But, you also miss the bigger point: Why wear it NOW? Seriously…is he so desperate this late in his Presidency that he’s finally trying project an alpha image of strong leadership? A little late for that, don’tcha think?

          • Purple State

            Maybe he’s wearing it because it’s cold?

            Please note: The embroidery above the patch reads “Air Force One.” That’s the president’s plane, so he’s not presenting himself as anything besides a president, as past presidents have also done, when they were president.

            The even bigger point is, if he’s been wearing it throughout his presidency, why the OUTRAGE about it now? A little late for that, don’tcha think?

            It’s way too late for the 4 Americans he watched die on a video screen while doing nothing to rescue them.

          • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

            “It’s cold?” THAT’S your great defense for the Poseur in Chief?

            By the way, my outrage at this moron’s ridiculous posing has not just recently arisen. He has never been greatly loved/admired by the military. He has never respected us, and we have never been anything more than photo-op for him.

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            Cold? Like the coldness emanating from his heart while he watched our people die on livestream from the situation room? That kind of cold? I don’t think his pretentious jacket will take THAT kind of cold away.

          • Purple State

            I was being sarcastic. You realize you guys are completely freaking out about a person wearing a jacket, right?

  • torpedoman2002

    Hopefully this will turn into the Michael Dukakis in a helmet sitting on a tank moment.

  • BR_549

    Gee, that would sure look swell with his mom jeans.

  • Jim Denney

    Note to Preezy: Halloween is over.
    P.S. Nobody except your base “base” is buying you dressed up as a real Commander in Chief anyway.

      But it was so impressive when W rode the back seat of a jet he pretended to fly? Wouldn’t fly one when he was asked to for Vietnam, but you ate that up when he walked the aircraft carrier in his flight suit.

      Difference is that W had just landed on the carrier in a fighter jet and was REQUIRED to wear the flight suit.

      I don’t recall anyone in the Bush admin claiming he flew that plane. I don’t think the Navy would let him without training and a check ride first.

  • Dan Thorpe

    traitors should not be wearing anything resembling military uniforms. Vote this radical out in 4 days

  • Bea

    He’s ready for his close up Mr. Demille.

    • Cyborg0012

      Oh my goodness!!! My fav movie!!! You hit it out of the ball park with that one. He just needs those Gloria Swanson eyes pointed at the camera.

  • Guest

    Bastard! I had to EARN my flight jacket. NACCS, ‘A’ School, SERE, The Rag. That punk wouldn’t last 5 minutes!

    • Cyborg0012

      Thank you for your service. I’m sorry for the insult.

    Bomber jacket?? Bill Ayres doesn’t wear that kind of jacket. Does Baraka know any other kind of bombers?

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    #ObomberJacket He looks a little swishy wearing that jacket.

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

    Where’s Dukakis, he can stand next to him wearing that tankers helmet with the giant Michael Dukakis name tag.

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      @Richard Jefferies:

      Now why would he wear a tankard on his head? And what beer would be happy purched over all that smoldering manure?

    My old eyes… I’m told I’m getting cataracts btw…

    Serious question:
    I can’t tell from the photo, is that leather? It looks shiny the way silk, or nylon, is shiny.

  • 1azuce

    Sort of like John Kerry wearing war medals, it just doesn’t fit, or match. Obozo looks ridiculous. It’s almost like the jacket is a crutch. What a damn fool.

  • michael s

    Remember Mission Accomplished ,you conservatives loved it when W. pretended to land a jet ,acting the the fighter president bill pullman played in Independence Day. Refused to fly in Vietnam but you went cuckoo for cocoa puffs for W. in the flight suit. Now you want to be as upset over Pres Obma wearing a jacket.

    I didn’t know it was against the law for a President to wear a bomber jacket. Oh wait, it’s not.

    You are looking at the President of the United States in >>>The Official Air Force One Bomber Jacket<<<. Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Reagan had one too. LOL, please do a little research before you put your foot in your mouth. The jackets are a
    tradition. I am so surprised that you people who are so deeply into politics
    don't know anything about Presidential traditions. You all are so sad. You can
    buy the Reagan replica on line. PS Get used to this President Obama will be
    with us for 4 more years!! http://www.reaganfoundation.org/store/prod-Adult_Flight_Jacket-1180.aspx
