He’s just trying to make THEM feel like victims who depend on government largess, just like he does for every group.

What he means is that he needs a clear view of their backs and out of their field of view so he can stab them in the back. He has done that repetitively.

Pathological liar - Broadly termed as "pseudologia fantastica", pathological lying seems to have no purpose. It is a habit that is assumed and stays for a variety of reasons.

says the guy that has literally sacrificed every man that has been killed in afghanistan since he was inaugurated.

he has never been in afghanistan to win. he was in afghanistan to first maintain his political viability, and then to kick the can down the road past whichever election was coming up. thousands have died for the sake of this man’s eqo.

I’m sure there is a special place in hell reserved for an offense so grave.

I would urge the President to find out who it is in his administration who has been telling law enforcement and military officials that returning veterans are all potential terrorists and tell them to knock it off. /s

Just my opinion, but this is about “I’m dismissing top brass left and right if they don’t agree with me, so I need to do this so people think I actually care about the military.” I hate this a$$wipe.

Obama does NOTHING that doesn’t support his agenda.

Words. Just words. A friend of my son’s, female former Army nurse, suffered a back injury so severe she was hospitalized four months, and has an estimated recovery time of 20 months. While she’s waiting for the VA to act on her disability claim, she’s supporting herself by selling flea market finds on eBay. Estimated wait is 8 months. I’m sure there are many cases worse than this. No. Excuse.

Don’t screw with Tricare, Obama, if you want to keep Vets happy. Tricare is already a compromise for the free healthcare for life we were promised when we joined the military.

My father-in-law is a veteran. I pay a fortune each month for a nursing home for him. My brothers-in-law are Socialists but refuse to help pay. Now he is in final stages of Alzheimer’s and the medical bills have drained my savings. Went to a VA hospital for hospice. 8 beds for the entire region.

8 beds for VA hospice? Tell the WWII and Vietnam vets that you have your back while Congress leeches and Administration gerbils get deluxe healthcare?

Liar!

Now that Obama has all the vets seething mad at him, it’s much too late for him to try to suck up and gain their trust. He insults our intelligence every time he opens his lying mouth.

The list of attacks on Veterans will not end until Obastard is out of office, and it’ll probably grow a bit more after that as we learn of the more secretive nefarious acts of The Won.

He has our backs? He's effectively corn-holing every man and woman who has ever worn the uniform!

Repeal of DADT.
Betrayal of Seal Team VI.
Purge of officers who resist his Marxist agenda.
Muzzling of Christian and Jewish chaplains in the military.
Closure of the National Memorials during the "shutdown."
Benghazi Massacre and the despicable coverup following.
Et cetera, ad infinitum.




America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

Eagles Up! Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!
