Skip to comments.Obama Not Making Any Friends With Veterans (The blowback will bring Zero down)
Posted on 03/16/2009 9:47:34 PM PDT by utahson
A few days ago I posted about the Obama administrations plan to rob soldiers of some of their medical benefits. Today the head of the American Legion (the nations largest veterans organization) paid a visit to Obama to talk about the issue, and he didnt leave happy.Normally I am a staunch advocate of limited government and privatization. But in this instance we have troops who served their country, often in awful war zones that left them scarred and maimed, and they did so with the assumption that medical care would be one of the benefits theyd receive as compensation. The government has no business trying to opt out of that.

Thanks to all you Obama voters, stay at home cry babies and third party voters for not voting to stop this man. If any of you are veterans that this will affect, how is this vote for change treating ya? You are responsible for this train wreck.
That money has been redistributed elsewhere.
I’m thinking if he pushes amnesty through he won’t need veterans in 2012.
“Thanks to all you Obama voters, stay at home cry babies and third party voters for not voting to stop this man.”
we could have had a POW veteran as commander in chief. That’s what makes this Obama revelation really stinky.
Anybody who did not see this coming is either brain dead or lives on Mars. Hussein has no love for the military, has accused then of murdering women and children and will use them as his doormat if allowed. President Bush is being appreciated more each day by the antics of Obama.
Where’s the fight......and I mean a meaningful one, I’ve been ready far too long.
Yes, blame the voter for your Party's ineptitude, gross incompetence, and rank opportunism. Yes, reward failure because...the alternative is "unthinkable"!
It's not the GOP/RNC/RINO Party's fault that it could not successfully convince conservative voters to vote for its candidate...it's the voters' faults for not being dumb enough to support yet another RINO! /sarc
The American Legion and VFW should start running anti-Obama advertisements NOW! The sooner - the better in my estimation.
Hmm...smells fishy to me. Think about this—Could this be a really disgustingly Machiavellian(sp?)ploy to bring about the return of the draft? I mean, if this goes through, what happens to our numbers of voluntary enlistments?
You have to know that a lot of O’s dem friends have harped for years about bringing back the draft, so that rich, privelidged(read, white) kids will have to serve in the military.
If voluntary enlistments decline due to despicable policies like this, can they then demand reinstatement of the draft?
Yup. McCain gets a lot of grief on this board — but he would NEVER disrespect America’s veterans like this. NEVER.
“Could this be a really disgustingly Machiavellian(sp?)ploy to bring about the return of the draft?”
Interesting. Mark Levin mentioned something about overloading the private insurance companies to force nationalized healthcare. Of course it could be both!
Even if it IS NOT some evil plan - that will still be the outcome.
I am a veteran this will affect and IIRC, and unfortunately a good segment of veterans voted for ‘change’ = Obama
Nobody on this friggin' Forum voted for Obama.
stay at home cry babies
Conservatives still went out and voted for McCain.
and third party voters for not voting to stop this man.
You simply have no control over the actions of other people.

Stop being hyperbolic, newbie.
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount of Up to and including my life.
The American people gave our military the finger by electing Hussein.
A message to the left and the right who voted for Hussein.
Give up and leave now while you still can.
EEE, you were the head cheerleader with knee pads and all in Ron Paul’s name, trying to get people to vote third party. You helped elect Obama, so piss off.
good one. that hushed up that young one didn’t it?
