      I agree, now we see why he received his medal of honor, he is a true American hero. He can be counted with the great. We salute you. You are a man of honor and decency who obviously puts America first unlike this administration. Thank you for your service.

    • ADRoberts

      I had the distinct impression that this hero was not happy to be NEAR Obama. That is the contrast between a HERO and a TRAITOR.
      If he had refused to let Obama give him the medal, the military would have court martialled him.

      • beelp

        No, you are wrong. He was already out of the military and had served more than the 7 years they have a “claim” on you.

        • Frank_Alexander

          You can be recalled for 8 years from the time you raised your hand, not seven, even after you complete your initial active duty obligation. If he was no longer on active duty, he did not have to obey any order UNLESS he is brought back on active duty. It would have been embarrassing for the DoD to have done this. Also, let’s say he had ballooned to 300 lbs (at 5’8″) and no longer looked good in uniform, the ceremony might have been a quiet one with not many official pictures…

        • Rustytruck

          All you people seem to think you are an authority on what happens in the Military, even Mr. Alexander here. I spent my life in the Military and have seen all kinds of things that are out of the normal happen. I seen guys come and go in less than a year with an Honorable, I’ve seen guys like me who were recalled many years later because they needed something. Just because what you got in the service does not mean it will be written in stone that it’s the same for every person. Sometimes your MOS (job) or rank will dictate what they want from you in particular, and one person can have an effect on your career, good or bad. In the Spec-Ops command there is always a demand for your ability, even when you age, because of what you know or are willing to do. Our oath was for life, not just 7 years or 8 or 6.

          • General

            Yeah, even I could have been recalled (as an Aussie “Digger” with specialities,) even if I was retired Unfit for duties, and M.D.

          • Surly Curmudgen

            Enlisted can be recalled up to thirty years past when their hand first went in the air. Past that they have to commission you before you can be recalled, then your butt can be recalled by the military till death plus one day.

      • WOP 2

        The United States Armed Forces could not have taken any action against this Patriot. He accepted the award on behalf of the men he was a comrade in arms with, not because of political aspirations or affiliations. Its fairly apparent that he was not in a particular mood to allow the current Commander in Chief politicize the Medal of Honor. For that I say Bravo Zulu. If you are looking for a reason to detest Obama’s leadership as CIC, look no further than his failure to support the fallen and the survivors at Ft. Hood, shot, wounded, or killed by an Islamic terrorist. No purple heart, no declaration of a terrorist attack. Quite frankly, in 20 years of service in uniform, I never did anything heroic or even close to it. If I had, I would have choked down the award of a medal from the President, and then done precisely what this brave soldier did. And oh, by the way, Mrs. Obama is NOT the deputy CIC. What makes a difference that she invited him?

        • Disgusted

          I like this guy. He does have convictions and true values.

      • NavyMM1

        Mr. Obama was awarding the CMOH on behalf of CONGRESS and the American people. He would have diminished himself, those who hold the CMOH, and the nation had he refused to allow Mr. Obama to award it to him. He knew that and did the right thing.

        However, being used in the Obama dog and pony State of the Union campaign show is an entirely different matter. He is well within his rights as a citizen to refuse, and the military has nothing to say in how he, as a civilian, uses his time. And in this he did the right thing… AGAIN.

        I am honored to have him as a countryman.

    • cazie

      I could see it in his face..when big ‘O’ was putting the medal on behind him. I give him credit for his grace and dignity at having to endure the charade who calls himself our commander standing so close.

  • Proud American

    The only answer a man of honor COULD give.

  • rabrooks1

    I also commend him, but I refuse to judge his motives. Based on his demonstrated humility, I suggest that this decline was not overtly political, but merely a reflection of his humble and heroic character; Even receiving the medal of honor was uncomfortable for him, which I also respect. This is a man of principle and honor. We know what he did; we don’t always know why. It is very hard to accurately judge motives.

  • dntmkmecomoverther

    Good taste in character; it’s what drove him to do whatever it was that gained that Medal of Honor. He didn’t do it to gain the medal, he did it because it was in his character to do so. This same character will not allow him to be amongst those of no character and no moral virtue. Good call soldier.

  • Gizmo

    A man with HONOR! interesting that the invite came from MO instead of BO. She must be a bit more comfortable with military around.. or maybe the sight of a uniformed REAL man?!? O might have requested no uniforms, just civvies, though, to lessen the manliness in the room…
    It also might have been quite interesting for him to have gone, sitting up there with the FL, and when everyone was clapping accolades, he sit quietly in dignity, when everyone rose in adoration, he continued to sit quietly in honorable conviction….

    Just right. Did not refuse the medal – he earned that, and he had no choice but to accept it from the Usurper-in-Chief. But he refused to be exhibited like an organ-grinder’s monkey to validate Obummer’s nonexistent patriot credentials. That shows style. Good on you, Sarge.

  • Randy Gaiser

    To be a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, has to be the highest honor any individual could possibly receive. It is an indication of true patriotism and bravery that most people will never display in their entire lives. The fact that Staff Sargeant Romesha declined the offer from the pretender in chief, shows his integrity as a Man of Honor.
    We could definitely use more people like Staff Sargeant Romesha, as leaders of this country, in our congress or at the local levels of government.
    God Bless you, Staff Sargeant Romesha, for a job well done.

      That’s the inconsistency in having the Kriminal Kenyan fraud as “Commander -In-Chief” Many thousands of honorable Americans in the military being subjected to the commands of a dictatorial weasel. It can’t, and isn’t, working.

    THANK YOU SIR IN MY OPINION YOU DID THE RIGHT THING YOU ARE A TRUE AMERICAN

  • GQ4U

    He’s an American and can refuse or accept an invitation from whomever he pleases; the difference is he has an heroic heart and isn’t afraid to refuse the main squeeze of the POTUS… of course everyone except Barrack would say NO to that.

    I wouldn’t go either unless they gave me the microphone so I could tell people about the true state of the union.

  • Rustytruck

    Oh but Michelle Obama said she is ashamed of America, remember?? Why in hell would a man of honor accept an invite from her who is ashamed of him? I don’t blame him one bit, and if it was me, I would’ve insisted that I got it from direct commander of my unit, screw Obama. All he was doing was showboating anyway, he doesn’t desreve the honor of shaking this man’s hand, SS6/E-6 Romesha is an American Hero who deserves better than the Obamas. God Bless you Soldier, thanks for your service to us, HOO-AH!!

  • buckofama2010

    Good for him!!! He knew they just wanted to use him as a political pawn and claim it was ovomit who was on the battlefield and not this hero just as he did with killing osama. ovomit and his sasquatch make me puke.

    Another brainwashed GI. If he didn’t want to play their game he should go ahead and give the medal back. What’s he fighting for anyway?? Some BS story about spreading freedom?? made up by US politician scumbags??

    good job Sargeant. As a vet myself I understand and agree with you

    • Beautut

      Ditto!

  • ATLDave

    I salute you, sir! Semper Fi. You have made all of us who served or who are currently serving proud to be Americans! May God less you !

  • mjwing

    I believe Staff Sergeant Clint Ronlesha has earned the right to not accept the invitation if he so choses. We don’t know what his reason is (nor do we need to know), but it was his choice.

  • Beautut

    I agree with Staff Sergeant Romesha. He is an : “All American Hero”.
    Before I was a S/Sgt in the USAF during the Korean war, I grew up in Washington DC. I was a Television Service Tech for McCarthy Brothers who handeled DUMONT TV service for Washington, Maryland and Virginia. Every year Dumont would give a set to the White House and also several more to the Pentagon. I was installing a DUMONT “Westminster” in the west wing of the whitehouse when President Harry Truman came into the office and said to me: “Have you got that set working? I answered Yes sir, Mr. President. President Truman asked my name and started laughing when I told him that my name was Harry also. He then said (still laughing) Well son, the white house isn’t big enough for two Harrys and one of us will have to go. The President shock my hand and that’s the last time I have been to the White House. I will will never have that chance again since I now live in California and nothing could get me back to Washingto…

  • Michael G.

    Good for him. I’d have done the same thing. I, perhaps, would have gone farther and said: No to receiving the CMH from Ob.

  • Kioga

    Proud of you Sergeant Romesha, for your Service, Dedication, and your Decision. You’re a true Hero and I can understand and support your actions.

  • A Patriot

    If more Americans were like him we wouldnt have to live under the rule of a socialist v=with visions of dictatorship

  • TEXAS DEPUTY

    Obama, a devout Black Muslim Communist, criminal offender, and above all a traitor! No wonder that he called the terrorist attack at Fort Hood “workplace violence” in stead of what it actually is, a terrorist attack! Obama has denied the Medal of Honor to another soldier who was truly deserving! Obama is openly trying to destroy this country, and this soldier is brave for not being one of Obama’s puppets! Now is a time to take up arms and come to defend this once great nation!!!…

  • DAY8293A

    GIVE THIS MAN ANOTHER MEDAL FOR ‘NOT’ GIVING OVOMIT ANOTHER FEATHER IN HIS CAP! GLAD HE DID NOT GO! HE SPIT IN THE ILLEGAL ALIEN MUSLIM TERRORIST’S EYE! BRAVO!!

  • Terry C

    Well Done, SSG Romesha.

  • iwojimafan

    From what I saw of the Ceremony, Obama did not Salute the Sgt. which as Commander in Chief he is supposed to Salute any Medal of Honor Recipient along with any Officer from Generals on Down. This just shows Obama is either Totally Ignorant of the Protocol or he just does not give a Damn about what he is supposed to do.

  • freedomringsforall

    May God continue to bless him greatly

  • Not a Paper Patriot!

    God Almighty bless this good man. He sees the Traitor-in-Chief for the charlatan he is.l

    This American soldier will live forever, the Traitor-in-Chief is headed for the abyss.

  • LB

    Good for him! No need to be used as a side show in Obama’s circus act. Obama’s administration had already reneged on providing assistance to the family of this brave soldier in order to attend just days before the MOH ceremony – stating there were too many cutbacks. I was fortunate enough to have been able to donate to his family fund to get all there and would do it a million times for all military families in need. God Bless this fine man!!

  • Bay0Wulf

    What is there to wonder about?

    OBummer is not worthy of respect, accolades or adoration. He & His Administration has been systematically throwing Our Military … Our Young Men & Women … “Under the Bus” in the name of Political Expediency.

    As much as it seems to be popular, the whole Gays in the Military” and “Women on the Front Lines” are extremely damaging to the military in general. The cost/benefit won’t stand up to even casual scrutiny.

    The push to pull our troops OUT and advertise when and where is leading to another engagement that will be even worse. (Like I said after Desert Storm … “We’re pulling out NOW!?!? Why aren’t we finishing … We’re just gonna be back there in less than 10 years … !”

    Our Current Administration is eager to abandon Our Military and strip as much as they can from it to put it into other stuff (You didn’t actually think they were going to SAVE that money did you?) … probably more solar panels, batteries, ethanol and wind power (ie. Political Boondoggles)

    The young man looks at the His/Our Country with a clear vision and … I think he realizes that what he’s been fighting for abroad is largely disappearing at home. Imagine what a shock that must be.

    • Bay0Wulf

      Oh … I forgot to note … Our Military is one of the VERY FEW THINGS the Federal Administration … President & Congress … are SUPPOSED to be doing. All the other BS is not even supposed to be handled by them.

  • Bay0Wulf

    One more point …

    Mr. President Obama DID NOT “GIVE” ANYTHING to this young man. He DID NOT “AWARD” ANYTHING to this young man.

    Mr. President Obama PRESENTED this Medal (CMH) CONGRESSIONAL Medal Of Honor to this young man. OUR CONGRESS “Awarded” the Medal.

    Some President’s are worthy of the Honor of Presenting the Medal. Some are NOT.

    Mr. President Obama in this case was just a Stooge who hoped to make points with the fact that he “Presented” the Medal.

    This guy accepted the CMH the only way an Honest Soldier Can … in the name and memory of His Fallen Comrades. He went further by refusing to ALLOW their names to be sullied by Our Stooge Commander In Chief.

  • dreamour

    Not a very informative article: So WHY did he refuse the medal?

  • http://www.facebook.com/karen.d.hill.3 Karen D Hill

    Thank God for Americans who still have integrity.

  • Anna

    Good judgment on both invitations. Thank you for your service. May God protect you.

  • Diane Crouse

    I am proud of this honorable Soldier and man, Gods blessing to you Sir. and thank you for your service to and for our Country.

  • General

    It would not surprise me if I heard that the Obamanation will try to rescind this honour award! (maybe even give it to himself, like Mussolini, and Idi Amin etc., have done before!)

  • guest

    there is no CONGRESSIONAL MEDAIL OF HONOR! IS IT the medal of honor period! congress has nothing to do with it! the mans command recommends it and it approved by the service head, and then presented by the president.

  • WASP

    The implication, by tone if not by word, on the part of the Libtard lamestream media, is that the SSgt somehow insulted the Liar-in-Chief by refusing his invitation to his circus.
    Like hell! He didn’t kick the mulatto Hitler in the face did he? When we hang the Kenyan traitor, will THAT be an insult?

  • Drew

    Whatever his reasons, I think he more than earned the right to do what
    his conscience dictates! Good for you Clint. May God always bless you
    & Thank You for your service! I support your decision, no matter
    what your reasons!

  • horseridingplains

    Thank you sir–bama needs to see he ia not gawd, he has no mandate over us–and many of us disagree with him

  • Berzrkr50

    I would have LOVED to have seen the look on Obozo’s face when his invitation was refused. I can hear him now; “How dare this peasant deny me a photo op”…

    I cannot imagine any circumstance where I would voluntarily sit in the same building with either the jackal or his wife. It is refreshing that there are pure thinking Americans, heroes at that, who are not flinched by any pc concerns from the communist administration.

  • adruidwolf

    Benny Dawkins your right he is not wasting lives, he is giving them up through treasonouse acts of transfering itelligence of sucurity opsec, along with arming the camel sht eating pigs that are killing my brothers and sisters in an illegal war he started to spread the cause of islam and their child molesting women beating god. And has the audacity to continue to deny the threat of muslims (extremist) building training camps here within the US. if it was a white supremist group, or a black brotheerhood arming themselves and educating themselves on self dwefense and home protection those camps would be raided with prejudice. Something that warrants that type of action for the recognition is not just something you sit around and talk about with your beer buddies, it takes a piece of your soul that you sacrificed by your self-less actions in being honored. this imposter will see prison and you will see his backers fleeing like rats off a sinking ship. you look at the Ameican rate of loss from your bozo and compare it to the rate of loss that could have been prevented by not giving terrorists sophisticated weapons that our own have not been able to have on the field. Had I recieved this type of medal it would have meant more to me given by my commander who I served under in the field, not some delussional make believe john doe. look at that atats on the lives lost in GW1 and when american weapons began to fall into the hands of the camel sht eaters along with security info tell me who has cost more livesand caused more collaterall damage to push the agenda of the muslim sisterhood.
