OBAMA DISRESPECTS VETERANS and MILITARY and YOU

goscgal says ...as a service connected  disabled vet ,i could not be more honored than to salute her as our commander in chief. my eyes are still filled with tears as she displayed the incredible depth of her soul as she spoke of our nations heros.'

Now the Obama campaign wants to tear apart the final statement that Senator Clinton delivered during the Austin debate in an attempt  to divert attention from Senator Clinton. By using 'silly season' political maneuvers.

This is yet another sign of the indignant attitudes of Obama toward the men and women of this country.  I am wondering how the veteran with half his face feels, the veteran with no legs feels, the veteran with PTSD or TBI feels.

I know how this veteran feels. I raised off my recliner and joined the crowd to a standing ovation and saluted our next Commander in Chief.

By the way the only person not standing were the moderators and Obama, in fact he mumbled to the moderators, 'are we done.'

I guess it was not a "really proud" moment in American history.

Yeah, he and his campaign are doomed. I think millions of people saw exactly what you saw.

I mean it.

Re: OBAMA DISRESPECTS VETERANS and MILITARY and YO

Yes and Hillary did a GREAT job respecting them by sending them to IRAQ in the first place...

My Son

who is currently deployed to Bagdad for the next 13 months and most of his mates are big Obama supporters.

Obama has done stellar work fighting for vets on the Veterans Affairs Committee since he came to the Senate.

Hillary has also done good work for the vets. The democrats dominate the top spots in ratings done by the Afghan/Iraq Vets association that analyze who has helped the vets the most in the Senate.
The top 50 are all democrats. Dems take care of vets. GOP just sees them as war widgets to be used and discarded.
Obama as President will be a strong advocate for Vets with Hillary's help in the Senate. They will make a formidable team.

When did we sink this far?

this diary sucks, as does militarims... an elections is not about whom you want to salute to. At least I hope it is not.

Saluting Barack

Allin- I have to say I'm suprised, but I respect that you were able to overcome your feelings and Salute Barack.

it's all about perspective

Hillary's idea of respecting veterans is to sign them up for a war of no strategic importance, of indeterminate length, and preventing them from retiring on time. Niicceee

Obama sucks.  What is the point of all of the diaries courtesy of the vile Clinton smear machine?

Re: OBAMA DISRESPECTS VETERANS

Yeah, I was really proud of him when he said that. I live near DC and went to Walter Reed to see my father-in-law once. There were guys torn to pieces everywhere, and not enough resources to cover them all.
As a Democrat I though Barack summed up our party's views on war, namely the warhawks  put our boys in harm's  way with no respect to their personal safety and well being. Democrats , all we care about is their safety and well-being.

And the conservatives out there, I wonder how they are going to react when Obama needs to raise taxes to open more VA hospitals...

Re: OBAMA DISRESPECTS VETERANS and MILITARY and YO

I know a Rush-listening Army officer who has had two tours in Iraq and he really likes Obama.  He told me that most of the people he works with are for Obama.

Disgusting Diary

As someone who voted for Obama, I thought Hillary's closing 3 minutes were outstanding.  And yes I could be silly and say she plagiarized parts of those 3 minutes but that would be silly.

Instead, I stand by my first sentence.

Re: OBAMA DISRESPECTS VETERANS and MILITARY and YO

Michelle Obama also disrespected veterans by claiming she was never proud of this country.  Her lack of love of country is a real liability to Democrats.

Do you honestly feel that Michelle Obama

doesn't love this country?

I think this is a VERY SAD day that we Democrats are attacking a fellow Democrat by saying that he or she isn't patriotic.

I liked Obama's line last night when he essentially said that why are we tearing each other down when we should be building our country up?

Michelle didn't say she was never proud of her country.

Yup

Attack a Democrat as unpatriotic, question his support for the troops.  Way to buy into rightwing stereotypes.
