Their “spontaneous” visit to a veteran owned bakery in DC, looked more like a campaign visit for Joe Biden, as his former boss, Barack Obama likely owes him, big time, after making the mistake of supporting the “annointed one”, Hillary Clinton in 2016. Instead of becoming the Democrat’s presidential candidate in 2016, Joe Biden was relegated to aiding the physically frail Hillary Clinton, as she struggled to go up and down stairs and climb down from the podium during Biden’s disappointing hometown rally for Hillary in Scranton, PA.
President Obama left office after 8 years, with low approval ratings from active military members and veterans. So why, is Obama, who left our VA hospitals in shambles and forced our troops to behave as public relations agents in the Middle East, suddenly showing his support for a veteran owned bakery with his former VP and likely Democrat Presidential candidate?PRESIDENT Barack Obama left office on Jan. 20 with negative reviews from most members of the U.S. military.
More than half the troops in a new poll had an unfavorable opinion of Obama’s leadership of the military for the past eight years, and about 36 percent said they approved of his performance as commander in chief, according to the latest survey by the Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.
Nearly 49 percent of service members who voted in the November election cast their ballots for Republican Donald Trump, who was very critical of Obama, while 29 percent voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who was Obama’s secretary of state.
Seventy-one percent said the military needs more personnel than authorized under Obama in conjunction with Congress. Fifty-nine percent said Obama’s withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq has made America less safe, and 54 percent said moves to draw down U.S. forces from Afghanistan have made America less safe. – US News and World Report
Meanwhile, 80% of veterans surveyed about whether we are better off because of President Obama’s policies responded “no”.
A stunning poll taken by disabledvets.org revealed how veterans felt about Obama’s 8 years in office:
Given his lack of interest in helping veterans while President, it seems odd that Barack Obama and likely Democrat candidate for President in 2020, would show up at a bakery in DC that is owned and operated by US veterans.
The “Dog Tag” bakery posted a video of the two, who appeared to be completely out of their element, as they attempted to look like everyday citizens shopping at the bakery. In addition to the video, the Dog Tag bakery posted the following message:
Look who stopped by Dog Tag Bakery today! Barack Obama and Joe Biden surprised us at lunch today and took some time to chat with our Fellows. Thank you for supporting our mission to empower service-disabled veterans, military spouses, and caregivers!
The Daily Mail reported about the incident that appeared to be staged by the duo:
The bakery — a nonprofit which provides veterans and their families with civilian work experience — posted a picture of the duo on Twitter.
In a video, which was posted to the bakery’s Facebook page Friday at 11:39am, a casually-dressed Obama and Biden can be seen mulling over menu choices and joking with each other, while bakery patrons on line behind them capture the moment for posterity with their phones.
Biden, who’d bellied up to the counter first, can be seen receiving a sandwich on a plate. As he’s asking the bakery staff if they have any mustard, Obama pops up and peers at the plate, saying, ‘Hold on, hold on, what’d you get here?’
‘I got one of these whatever the hell they’re called,’ Biden responds.
‘”Whatever the hell they’re called?”‘ Obama repeats as he wanders over to the display case to look at what the food options are.
Biden then lifts his plate into the air, examines the sandwich and proclaims that it’s ham and cheese, at which point Obama says, ‘Yeah, that looks pretty good, I think I’ve gotta have one of these, too.’
‘Give the boss one of those, too,’ Biden says, as Obama adds a fennel salad to his order.
