Former President George W. Bush and Barack Obama could not be more different when it comes to how they treat our troops, and consequently, how they are viewed by military members.
This video clip depicts that fact perfectly. Watch as Bush enters a room full of Marines who offer him uproarious applause and shouts of support. Then, listen to the crickets chirp as Obama enters another room of Marines.
Only a few high-ranking military officials could be seen making an effort to clap.
George Bush didn’t just offer our troops his whole-hearted support as Commander in Chief, either.
He has made it his life’s mission after leaving office to give thanks to those who put their lives on the line to defend our freedoms, and frequently makes trips to visit the wounded warriors who nearly sacrificed it all.
