Skip to comments.Palin: Obama Shows 'Lack of Understanding' of Debt of Gratitude to Military
Posted on 05/30/2014 1:25:18 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin joined Sean Hannity from the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, La. to speak out on the ongoing VA scandal.
"I think there's a lack of understanding on our commander-in-chief's part about what the mission of the military is, and why it is that we owe a debt of gratitude that's manifested in benefits paid to those who've already earned them," Palin said.
Palin ripped President Obama's speech to West Point cadets this week, calling it "weak," and went on to say that she doesn't think Obama believes in American exceptionalism.
"It's not that we are weak as a country, but we are so unreliable now, under Obama," Palin said. "My concern is the effect that his doctrine, his policies, his attitude, has on those who are volunteering to serve this country -- to those whom we owe a debt of gratitude."
When asked by Hannity if the VA is a "death panel" for America's veterans, Palin responded: "Isn't it ironic that those who were willing to sacrifice all, to put their life on the line to allow the freedom of choices in health care and economic decisions and everything else -- our soldiers, our airmen, our Marines -- they're the ones getting screwed by the VA."(continued)

Obozo shows a lack of understanding ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.......................
It's amazing what a dominant force ENVY is in the annals of history. The Bible says it is why they killed Jesus.
It’s too bad that the entire Cadet Corps didn’t give him a Bronx Cheer in mass.
My dear lady you may want to see this.
Why would Obama care about the well being of American military and Vets?
To him they are all muslim killers and Islamophobes and work to destroy everything he stands for.
If we only put the right people in charge socialism(government programs, VA) will work. Not gonna happen.
“Leave no man behind.”
In essence, that’s exactly what Obama did with these veterans.
When 0bama said corpsemen he meant it.
Why is anyone who has been paying attention surprised?
—While speaking at a campaign rally at Iowa State University on February 11, 2007, Sen. Obama “said the Iraq war ‘should never have been waged,’ adding, ‘We now have spent $400 billion and have seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted’.”
Got that? Wasted. Wasted! and he was elected in 2008. Harrumph
Of course he issued an apology to those who were offended.
“I would absolutely apologize if any [military families] felt that in some ways it had diminished the enormous courage and sacrifice that they’d shown.”-B.Obama 2/12/07
Communists dislike the American Military because we killed their friends in Russia (1918), Korea and Vietnam.
THAT is the reason for the Anti-"War" left
Not because they are opposed to the Suffering it brings, quite the contrary.
The Two World Wars were the Revolutionary Holocaust they had longed for, look at the Aftermath of them both, After WW1 they bagged Russia the Largest Country on Earth. After WW2 they got Eastern Europe and China.
It's Frightening when you think about it.
If Obama hates America, he surely hates America’s military.
Sounds like "If we only put the Republicans in charge of the Senate, McConnell will be able to hold back Obama."
I’d rather they just stood and silently turned their backs to him.
Respect must be earned.
