In addition to the president, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Va.), VA Secretary Robert McDonald, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Rep.

Will Hussein give special mention to the Corpse-Men in attendance?
Welcome to the hornets nest.

He will be preceded by the great LtCol Oliver North. Let’s hope North pulls no punches!
I sense the very real possibility of a kerfuffle
I thought maybe they meant Hitler’s Muslim Legions.
Why did they invite him of all people?
hope they all walked out or turned there backs......have to watch the news.Yea right
How’s THAT going to work out?
I am sure we ALL could probably retire nicely on what they’ll spend on security! :)
Obama to address ISIS convention Detroit Michigan,
fall of 2016?
Eat your government cheese and quit complaining! How am I supposed to enjoy my Prime Rib with all of you complaining? Eat your government cheese and if you vote Democrat, I’ll give you a few government crackers.
I hope they still have their BS Detectors to strap on their ears.
“With so many important issues ranging from the state of VA health care to the Global War on Terrorism “
HUH? There is a Global War on Terrorism? Did not know that. I know and can see the Islamic Global War on Civilization with many Terrorist groups aiding in that agenda but I can not see a Global War against that anywhere.............
So tell me again why the Vets might want to hear from Bernie Sanders? Yeah I know he has a bill up to pad the VA payroll in VA but other than that? He’s one of the dunces that was cutting VET spending in the first place.
“The American Legion was founded in 1919 on the four pillars of a strong national security, veterans affairs, Americanism, and youth programs.”
ehhh... I don’t see how his ‘vision’ aligns with the four founding pillars.
I am not a vet so I refrain from commenting further.
watched a little of it.
The camera man seemed infatuated of looking for black women in the crowd and kept panning in on them.
Also do some of these vets not know what the hell is going on with the cuts in the military, the homosexuality , and VA as some of them were clapping him.
Also Obama seems to be the greatest liar of all time. What he was spouting was nonsense.
LOL, feel the love! :) Good ole tone deaf Barry...then again they might just bus in supporters and bar AL members from attending.
Hopefully, every seat is empty and Bozo is there alone.
It would be nice if Oliver North asks for obama to explain where he was on 9-1-2012 when Americans were being shot at and killed with many wounded in Benghazi and just where are the survivers. Ask him if he enjoyed the party the next day and why he punished those that tried to rescue the Americans. Ask him to explain all the weapons going to the terrorists, the overthrow of gov’ts so the muslim brotherhood could take over etc etc etc.
Whose brilliant idea was it to have him speak?
Read the comments and heartily agree with the majority of them. The only reason OhVomit shoild have been invited was to be horsewhipped then hanged for being a traitor.
Wow...the Legion’s poo-bahs are getting an earful.

After that he should then Dare Obama to take his pension away from him like what has been threatned by his admin to all the admirals inthe serivce currently.
I can’t bear to listen to him anymore. I immediately change the channel or turn off the sound when he starts in.
Why would they invite the usurper?
He is NOT the NATION's commander-in-chief! He is commander-in-chief of the ARMED FORCES only.
Why not have the head of isis speak to these guys? What’s the difference?
Does North have the courage to say that Obama is an illegal alien, a foreign agent, a Saudi plant, the only survivor of a group of eight men the Saudis groomed for the White House?
The VA had better be ready to address a major veteran barf outbreak.
I usually do too , but today I thought I’d give hi 5 minutes and at the end of the 5 mins I thought are these people stupid or ignorant to applaud him and what a massive liar he is.
I went out to vote right after and have not put the news on yet
Don’t leave out tarred and feathered.
if anyone would like to see this
here is the complete speech to the American Legion Convention in Charlotte N.C. - Aug 26th , 2014
This, I do not know.
Than you for airnig it here.
In that audience I’d speculate that 99 percent of the attendees would alos like those questions answered, publically.
In my dreams, I'd like to see LtCol Oliver North THROW a punch.
And, in my dream...I smile....
and why didn’t they demand he help get our Marine out of a Mexican jail?
I have no idea.
They’ll probably be polite, but they shouldn’t be. They should boo him and shout him down.
this event is history already
here is what he said :
Why is this happening. I cannot believe that the American Legion would invite Obama to speak.
AND ...... some clapped ....some clapped a lot
Far too polite to the liar.
read the comments that AML’s made

As a veteran and a member of the American Legion, and Legion Rider, I am in disgust at fellow members of this Legion. You tell me what dubya and cheney did for you but load up the VA hospital, to the breaking point. Tel me what Laura did for you compared to Dr. Jill Biden & Michelle Obama, has accomplished with dependent wives and children. I worked with Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, getting families recognized in need when bush and company screwed the pooch in getting the deployed Kansas National Guard dependents their allotment. What disgust me more that anything else is the total lack of knowledge to what socialism is. To those that said they are dropping their American Legion membership since they spent their whole career fighting socialism and communism. Please do us all a favor, and don’t let the door hit you in the A$$. My spouse and I started a school program here where we donated Christmas cards from elementary to High School would fill them out to the wounded at Fort Sam, and we would collect money to put gift certificates in the cards. I brought the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and AFL-CIO on Board of The American Legion Riders American Legacy Run. I want to know what you have done except compare a disgraced Oliver North to this president. If push comes to shove both Oliver North and the other disgraced Allen West, could be charged under the Code of Military Justice, for their wanton disregard of the code in the promotion of Political candidates. While I am at it let me remind the Legions policies about displaying Legion gear at political rallies. I won’t run and quit, I will hold you to the fire. You do not have to like the Commander in Chief. But he is a duly elected President and Commander in Chief (Twice, second by a lopsided majority) You don’t have to agree with his policy, but as veterans, you will damned well respect the office he hold, and I will knock the damned head off of anyone that disrespects that office. It is up to the leadership of the American Legion to either get the members in line or remove them from the rolls. DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR. When you go the facebook page of a piece of shit (that resided to avoid a court-martial like Allen West, that is using American Legion Convention pictures to further his political and for profit agenda then it is time to start doing a little Legion house cleaning. Let me remind you of your hero calling a Decorated disabled veteran disloyal to America. I better damned well see the new National Commander of the American Legion Address this disrespect for the Commander in Chief, or you will see me bringing a lot more in my camp to the table. Anyone that wants to carry on this conversation look me up on facebook. I will be looking for that address in the Legion Mag.
