Barry got a ‘Courage’ Award? Isn’t that what they give to unattractive, overweight girls when they pose nude?
Or washed-up basketball players that say they’re gay?
He really did get the award, though.
In selecting the former president for the award, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation lauded Obama for expanding health security to millions of Americans, which opponents of the bill passed by the House on Thursday argued could be lost if it becomes law. The bill faces an uncertain future in the Senate.
‘President Kennedy called on a new generation of Americans to give their talents to the service of the country,’ said Caroline Kennedy, the late president’s daughter, in announcing the award in March. ‘With exceptional dignity and courage, President Obama has carried that torch into our time, providing young people of all backgrounds with an example they can emulate in their own lives.’…
…The annual award is named for JFK’s 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book Profiles in Courage and is presented to political figures who have taken courageous stances in public life.
Let me guess, Hillary’s next in line for losing with ‘Courage’?
Former president Barack Obama has vigorously defended Obamacare as he called on members of Congress to show courage in the debate over the future of health care in America.
Obama was careful not to mention Donald Trump by name in Boston on Sunday night as he referenced the current administration’s efforts to dismantle much of his signature health care law.
‘I hope that current members of Congress recognize it takes little courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential – but it takes great courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm,’ Obama said as he accepted the JFK Profile in Courage Award.
‘I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right.’

And why would he mention Obamacare?
Because that’s literally the only thing he accomplished in 8 years.
And now it’s being dismantled.
