59 WVNS ^ | 27-july-2011 | Anne Moore

Posted on 07/28/2011 7:09:56 PM PDT by OL Hickory

“The fact that the President comes out and threatens to take away our social security checks and not pay the veterans is despicable,” said David Hern, a veteran who fought in Korea.

Maybe the vets who are summoned to the WH should just hunker down and stay awhile. Say that they’ll leave when obama resigns and moves back to chicago.

President Obama has said that if a default occurs, the administration will be forced to prioritize who gets paid.

“If that happens, and we default, we would not have enough money to pay all of our bills –bills that include monthly Social Security checks, veterans’ benefits, and the government contracts we’ve signed with thousands of businesses,” said the President.

So, his first priority is to deny payment to veterans, the elderly, and business owners. That happens to be groups of people who, by a large majority, do not support his policies. What a coincidence.

Obama is a piece of . . . .work. No cuts to the illegal’s living in the country and sucking up millions and millions of dollars, but those that served our country with honor need to be penalized. I think this is despicable.

Isn’t that the truth!

As you say, despicable.

Bet Mr. and Mrs. Obama won’t miss any meals.

And the Mrs won't miss any vacation trips, the muslims won't miss any of their mosque rebuilding support, his czars and their staff won't miss any paychecks, etc....as the list goes on.

Hearing a lot of that lately. And the hogs are getting hungry. I’m not sure Obama and the Dems realize the game they are playing, and that it could turn VERY bad in a very short time. Here’s to hoping, against hope, that they come to their senses. . .

I think the military both active and retired does need to be looked at....BUT FIRST YOU START WITH THE CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES AND MAKE THEM TAKE THEIR CUTS....

to even threaten vets is obscene...

I took due not of that. President spends days playing golf; hosting exotic gourmet dinners; taking Air Force 1 and fleets of other Air Force planes to transport them, their family and their bloated staff on luxurious jaunts. Michelle goes off on so-called meet-and-greet forays to exotic locations with her retinue of 40+ staff. Members of Congress treat their own families to similar extravagances at citizens’ expense, all the while bringing to mind Marie Antoinette's “Let them eat cake.” To give her credit, she never said that.

Wonder why he didn’t bring in some welfare mothers and food stamp recipients and tell them their ‘benefits’ might be cut. Actually, I don’t wonder why.

The have no sense liberalism is a mental disease.

The only time they stop spending is when they run out of other peoples money.

0bama's agenda goes beyond socialism with his plans to destroy the private sector.

Make a list of his pro-America accomplishments. You won't need a yard stick, foot long ruler or a micrometer to measure the list.

After that statement, it is time for the USS(R) Obama to prepare for collision....

It is not nice to mess with mother nature, but with a vet? Obozo is Very Very stupid.

Indeed. I'll look on the bright side. If Zero tries to pull some commie coup at election time, watching our boys and girls dragging them out of bed and evicting them will be yet another gem in the annals of US military history.

To David Hern:

Obama hates you and all veterans unless he can get a photo-op out of it. Look at what his head of the VA Cemetary in Houston is doing - (Ocasio).

Look at his destruction of the U.S. Carrier Navy.

Look at his attacks on the CIA.

He hates you. Pure and simple. Back in Nam, we would call a guy like that a traitor. Today, too many American fools call he “Mr. President.”

I call him “Comrade in Chief” and on a really bad day, “The Traitor In Chief”.

Do you get it, Mr. Hern? He hates you and your family. You are the colonial imperialist, the aggressor, the baby-killer. Make one mistake and he’ll sic his butt-kissing racist AG Eric Holder on you.

Treason is in season and you got it first hand in the White House.

Hope you learned a lesson. Remember “NOVEMBER” 2012.

Tomorrow, he’ll summon a group of school kids and tell them they can’t have their food stamps and education.

So does most of our servicemen. I'm certain that the leftists have considered seizing power at times, but there are those who have sworn an oath to protect the nation from enemies foreign and domestic. Real bummer, isn't it Zero?
