Obama Rewards Political Supporters With Medals

From an unquestioning Associated Press:

Obama to honor Clinton, Oprah with freedom medal

By JOSH LEDERMAN | August 8, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton is headed back to the White House — just for a day — and Oprah is coming, too.

Clinton and Oprah Winfrey will be among 16 people that President Barack Obama will venerate later this year with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the White House announced Thursday. They’ll join other prominent people to be honored this year, including musicians, scientists, activists — even an astronaut…

What a great country. Eventually everybody gets a trophy!

Fifty years ago, President John F. Kennedy created the modern version of the medal — the highest honor the U.S. bestows on civilians — with the stroke of a pen to an executive order…

The president decides on the list of medal recipients after reviewing an advisory board’s recommendations of individuals who have contributed to America’s cultural, security and other public interests…

Mr. Obama seems to think that this medal is intended to reward those who have helped him politically. Some of the top winners:

Bill Clinton

Campaigned and fundraised for Obama’s re-election. Saved Obama with convention speech.

Oprah Winfrey

Major help to Obama’s first election.

Gloria Steinem

Helped push the lie of the Republican ‘War On Women.’

Ben Bradlee

Overthrew a Republican President who had just been re-elected in an historic landslide.

And speaking of the Republican ‘War On Women,’ where is the outrage at Clinton getting the country’s highest honor? A man who sexually harassed a state employee, and who lied about it under oath, and got others to lie. A man who has been credibily accused of rape.

Mr. Clinton’s whose behavior towards women was so egregious it even offended Bob Filner.

From Breitbart:

Flashback–Filner: Clinton’s Sexual Relationship with Intern ‘Reckless and Indefensible’

August 8, 2013

In December 1998, while the House debated impeaching President Bill Clinton for alleged perjury relating to his consensual sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, then-Congressman Bob Filner slammed Clinton’s actions as “reckless and indefensible.”

But, naturally, Bill was able to put politics above personalities. And he endorsed Mr. Filner for mayor just last year.

So how long will it be before Mr. Filner gets his medal?

    Obviously, Clinton getting the PMoF is the 2nd sign of the apocalypse. Nerobama getting elected was the first.
