I just saw on Yahoo! that, in his weekly radio and internet speech, the Anointed One called on Americans to honor our veterans this Memorial Day. Of course, there's nothing wrong with honoring our troops, vets and active duty personnel alike. We conservatives do that by nature. And there's nothing really wrong with a left-wing loon like the Big O asking Americans to honor the troops. There is something really wrong with Obama claiming in his speech that we have too often failed "as a nation" to give our military sons and daughters their full respect. Oh, I take MUCH umbrage with that!
Americans have never failed to respect our vets; liberal Americans have failed to respect our vets. It is liberals who spit on our troops. It is liberals who call our troops baby killers. It is liberals who want military recruiters to get out of town. It is liberals who vote to cut off funds for our troops in the field. It is liberals who make movies portraying our troops as a bunch of raping, murdering thugs. It is liberals who hang our troops in effigy at their "anti-war" demonstrations. It is liberal Americans who do these things.
If Obama really cared about vets and the truth, he would've used his speech to censure his fellow leftists for their decades long animosity against America's armed forces. Instead, the Chosen One sought to give cover to his ideological brothers by portraying their moral failure as a moral failure of the entire nation. He's got some nerve!
