Obama flubs Medal of Honor...again

I'm starting to think he really hates this Medal. From Blackfive:
I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously." 
As we all know, SSG Sal Giunta, of the 173rd Airborne, was the first living recipient (2011) of the MOH who fought in Iraq/Afganistan. SFC Jared Monti, 10th Mountain Division, was KIA in Afghanistan in 2006. He was posthumously awarded the MOH by Obama in 2009.
So he mistakenly said that someone didn't win posthumously, when he actually did. What an insult. And to add to that insult, he, Obama, was the one who awarded the living recipient, so how could he mis-remember that??

If this sounds familiar, you may remember that Obama made a similar mistake on the day of the Ft. Hood shooting. During his live press conference, he gave a "shout out" to Jim Crow and said that he won the Medal of Honor. But Crow hadn't won it since it's only awarded to combat veterans. Crow won the Medal of Freedom which is given to civilians.

I believe Obama hates the military and does everything he can to undermine its traditions, history and honor by insulting MOH recipients. What a horrible president.

You were expecting maybe Bob Hope? (A little take on some Bugs Bunny sarcasm)
