Barack Obama
The 95-year-old Crow Nation historian and WWII vet received the nation's highest civilian honor along with 15 others, including Sandra Day O'Connor, Billie Jean King, Sidney Poitier and the late Harvey Milk.

IN case any of you are interested in facts... here's real reporting. At least Obama didn't actually hold a goofy face like Bush did when he couldn't get out of a press conference.

It was a still shot of a quick expression. Way to go you all winners squad! (or is that whiners?)

Video as well. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/aug/13/obama-hawking-medal-freedom

All I hear is they come over here they come over here. LOL. It depeneds on "who comes over here". Yea I have heard about places like third world countries sending their conjoined twins over because they dont have the tools or what not to seperate them. When was the last time there was a public interest story on a Canadian, or English conjoined twin being sent over because they didn't have to tools to seperate them.

And other countries have private insurance just like we do, and do you know that we pay 5-6,000 dollars more a year in premiums then they do. What does that say about our "great system".

This is a very high honor, he deserves it. Too bad obama had to ruin it by making his already stupid face even uglier.

Wow this was really diverse list of recipients. I wonder if Obama and Chief celebrated after the ceremony with a bud light, and a can of hairspray with rubbing alcohol for the chief.
