With an approval rating of just under 15% among active-duty members within the armed forces, it’s easy to see why brave men and woman in uniform feel betrayed by this administration.
Recently, U.S. Marine Manny E. Vega decided to pay a trip to the White House just before dawn. He wanted to exercise his “constitutionally guaranteed rights of speech and assembly.”
In order to test these rights, he took a loud-speaker and started tearing Obama apart shouting into the speaker “Time to resign, Mr. President, time to resign.”
Obama’s approval rating sank from 35% in a 2009 Military Times polls to the current record low.
Moreover his disapproval rating, meanwhile, soared from 40% in 2009 to 55% this year.
The Military Times survey also finds a lower approval rating than other polls of Americans connected with the military, veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan found approval of the President was lower than the general population.
“Morale in the military is swiftly sinking, with the troops losing both their sense of mission and their faith that their superiors, political leaders — and the nation — still have their best interests at heart,” the Times said in its exhaustive report entitled, “A force adrift: How the nation is failing its troops and veterans.”
