It’s even worse than watching Bill Clinton try to act patriotic.

He is a piece of dirt on the bottom of my husband’s boot, and none of us believe that he actually cares one lick about any of us. Some of the younger guys may buy it, but anyone with any real life experience knows what we can truly expect from this liar-in-chief.

Our FIRST Muslim President detests the military. His goal is to destroy America as we know it and replace it with Sharia law.

And Americans will never believe it until the MSM tells them.

The MSM will never tell America anything bad about their supposed liberal hero. At least not until he begins to tighten the screws really tight on them too. By then, it will be too late.

Continued support implies that they get support now

Support like he gave the two Seals and an American Ambassador in Banghazi..

Remember he couldn’t understand why our military didn’t have to buy their own medical insurance. After all they volunteered.

Today he defiled the Tomb, with his appearance.

VA claims are taking a reported 250 days to process, on average. I had a claim that was just finished and it took 710 days.

I watched the speech this morning. Mooch had a patronizing smirk on her face and every other word from The Won’s mouth was I, me, me, me, I, I, Michelle, I, me and so on. I was disgusted. This man DOES hate the military and this country. It IS his focus to destroy us from the inside out.

HOW can so man in this country agree with this man? They are duped by the shallow gimee, gimme of the freebies and the big government babysitter. SOMEBODY owes me.... give me a break.

I am still sick to my stomach at the election results. I do know there was massive voter fraud (busloads from Illinois voted here in Milwaukee and Madison) and reports of extremely unrealistic turnouts for Philly and St. Lucie Florida, etc. Key states. Remember the Geo. Soros Sec. of State project about 10 years ago. Well, you are now seeing the results of that.

Stay focused and I agree - he is the LEAST patriotic man ever elected president of this country. God Help Us Keep our great Republic.

There is a photo up on Obama’s facebook page, not sure if it was taken today. He is in C-I-C mode wearing a bomber jacket with his hand over his heart. Michelle has a long face and not holding her hand over her heart. No surprise. The leftists continue to post awful things on Mitt and Ann Romney’s pages as well as Paul Ryan’s. Obama is the front man for “we all need to come together” while his supporters show their true colors.

I heard some of this.
Ubanga used the opportunity to launch another campaign speech as if the election isn’t already over. Instead of praising America’s veterans and leaving it at that, he launched into how he was going to spend spend spend on veterans, as if veterans are in the same toilet as the moochers who comprise the Democrat party base.

It was stomach churning. It was obscene.
This piece of sh** Ubama needs to drop dead from a heart attack or something. Wow..

I’ve been out of the loop today and haven’t seen any news. Did Ubama actually visit any veterans today? Laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns is all well and good, but Memorial Day was back in May

Obama hails veterans, pledges continued support...F*** You - I wouldn't put the uniform on again - this isn't the country it was back in the '60's - of liberty, of responsibility, of competence, of individual initiative, of accomplishment - it now represents envy, resentment, greed, class warfare, "revenge" as the president himself put it - a government selling itself to the highest bidder, for the support of the zombie voters and the campaign donations of the Solyndras and other insider freeloaders - a people too numb in the head to know enough to vote for their own welfare - those aren't values for which I'd put myself on the line again.......

"Over the next few years more than a million service members will transition back to civilian life."

I remember the last "Peace Dividend". This time it is going to gut our Military Force Structure.

Mine is at 400 days and counting.

The problem is that Obama made the VA claim rules different and any new soldier who goes in and fails a TBI or PTSD/ST test have to file a claim. The monday morning workloads are obscene right now. Oh and FWIW ebenefits says my current claim won’t be completed until July of next year. So by the time it is theoretically done I will nearly hit two years, almost as much as you.

He doesn’t know the difference. Remember the one Memorial day he did a shout out to some of the folks in the audience? Maybe even one of the “corpseman” present. Thanks to others but I take no honor in him saying it because he doesn’t mean it. This is the same guy who said he thought about joining the military (yea right) but Viet Nam was over so there wasn’t much point. Can you even envision him whimpering in a foxhole or crying like a little baby in 50 foot seas in a destroyer escort? No thanks.

The Republicans will have to devote resources to investigating and preventing voter fraud.

When I got home from church this morning, I turned on the TV, and the news was live from Arlington National Cemetery. Some guy (I don’t know who) was giving a speech about veterans .... and that vile communist, seated to his right, was looking down and picking at his fingernails. I thought of my late father, who wore the uniform of this country for 17 years, and wept for the first time in I don’t know how many years.

“Continued” support? You have to do something before you can continue it. Or does he mean continued support for suppressing military votes?

Continued support?
What he really means is “continued token support.”

USS Lester DE-1022. 67-68 out of Newport RI. And you are right. He’d have never made it out of bootcamp. Even though it would have been just up the road for him from Chi-town. GLNTC.
