I hope the following isn't too long. It's from an email I got from a fellow LEO (retired) showing Obama's attitude towards those in uniform.For the liberals in the audience, LEO means law enforcement officer.
"To all, I have read all of the emails from not only some of the MTOA board members, but from other Law Enforcement & Military personnel about Barack Obama's rudeness and what seems to be disgust for basically anyone in uniform.
Well, it's my turn to add to the list of emailers and here it is: So members of the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department, MSP, and other local agencies inside Calhoun County are working with Secret Service in the security of Mr. Obama. Mr. Obama's bus arrives in Battle Creek and pulls into the stadium area. Before Mr. Obama exits the bus, he has the Secret Service get off and tell all Law Enforcement personnel in uniform that they now have to stand behind the bus so Mr. Obama is not seen with anyone in a Law Enforcement uniform before he gets off or while in the public view. So, everyone from MSP, Sheriff's Dept., and other agencies looks at each other for a brief second, goes and stands behind the bus out of sight so Mr. Obama does not have to see, or been seen with, what to him is 'undesirables' since he refuses to been seen or even acknowledge Military or Law Enforcement.At a time of war and terrorism in our world, this presidential candidate who is being protected by various branches of the military &law enforcement at the tax payers expense, refuses to acknowledge, be seen with, have in his photographed background, any type of Military or Law Enforcement in uniform.
But this is not in the media or headlines in the news. Why? I wonder what the story or media frenzy would be if it was muslims, blacks, whites, jews, or any other race, gender, religon, and/or occupation, that Mr. Obama refuses to be seen with or have around him.
Why would Law Enforcement branches make this up? Law Enforcement traditionally has had more funding under Democrats.
Just food for thought leading up to November 4th.

One, hussein has dissed the muslims before (see this article from mlive.com) when he refused to let muslim women wearing Khimar, or scarves, sit behind him during a speech in Michigan. He'll throw anyone under the bus that doesn't serve his prurient campaign interests.
Two, hussein backed out of a scheduled visit with injured soldiers in the military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany during his world tour in the summer when told he could only bring two senate staffers and no campaign people or cameras.
Three, being seen with 'the man' would make hussein look bad in the eyes of his base.
Not ready to lead. Indeed.
