President Wishes Military Members Merry Christmas

"The President and First Lady Extend Christmas Greeting and Express their Gratitude to America's Servicemen and Women"

The video can be found here.
PRESIDENT:  Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas.  As you and your families gather to celebrate the holidays, we wanted to take a moment to send greetings from our family—from me, from Michelle, from Malia and Sasha—and from Bo.
I think that our President has found his place as Commander in Chief in terms of reaching out to our Service men and women. Even for those who are "quartered safe out here", it is time away from friends and family.  Just the fact that the President remembered is important to those in uniform, and their families.
So to all our men and women in uniform spending the holidays far from home—whether it's at a base here in the states, a mess hall in Iraq or a remote outpost in Afghanistan, know that you are in our thoughts and our prayers.  And this holiday season—and every Holiday season—know that we are doing everything in our power to make sure you can succeed in your missions and come home safe to your families.

FIRST LADY: And to all Americans, from our family to yours, Merry Christmas.

PRESIDENT: Merry Christmas, everybody.
Regards  —  Cliff

At the risk of sounding jaded.....and well...unappreciative....."yes".....and all carefully scripted right down to body language and attire....with soulfull looks....and so much better than any of the previous Prez's have done.....but then...why wouldn't you do it when you are about to commit another 30 (or maybe even 40thousand to a battle they can't and aren't free to win in an area of the world that has never seen a victory by an outsider since the dawn of man.
