In campaign remarks this afternoon in San Antonio, Texas, President Obama made a national security case for a strong economy and suggested that his opponent, Mitt Romney, won't take proper care of veterans if he's elected president.
"I'm looking around this country, and I know from our history, from world history, that no nation has always been stronger than its economy," Obama said. "That's an issue of our national defense. And, so, because of our outstanding men and women in uniform we know that we've got the greatest military on earth, but we also have to have the best economy on earth to support those troops. And that means let's start investing, rebuilding roads, and rebuilding bridges, and laying broadband lines in rural communities. Let's rebuild schools that are overcrowded and give them state of the art science labs. And let's rebuild our ports and runways. That's what America is about--is rebuilding. We've got thousands of construction workers out there that are ready to get to work. Let's put them to work. That will be good for our economy, and over the long term will be good for our strength."
Then, the president of the United States segued into attacking his opponent, Romney:
"That's the difference between myself and my opponent: As long as I'm commander in chief we're going to make sure that our veterans are properly cared for," Obama said, suggesting that Romney, if he becomes president, won't take proper care of veterans.

From the guy that wants to jack up my TRICARE 1000%.
Listenhillary suggests your child or your dog would NOT be safe left alone with Barack Hussein Obama mmm mmm mmm
The only time the democrats admire veterans is when they can be cast as victims. They hate veterans without injuries, who are proud of their handiwork.
If a vet seems pathetic, or will dance like a monkey on a stick begging for a cornicopia of benefits without end, the dems love them.
Next it will be “Romney may be a martian”
Yeah, just ask the Oath Keepers.
If you have no record to run on use fear,page five democrat hand book.
I suspect a poll would show that the vast majority of veterans don’t think Obama cares at all about veterans.
What is the deal with Tricare? ANy details?
I guess he doesn’t realize that soldiers pay taxes, too. So when he raises taxes to get funds to build build roads, the soldier’s tax will increase like the rest of us.
They are indeed desperate.
When you have no accomplishments on which to hang your hat, then the only thing you can do is sling mud and innuendo, in the hopes that some of it will stick.
You cannot get to heaven by pointing out the other guy’s sins..............
You know, it sort of sounds like he’ll have our military repairing roads, digging ditches?
Romney may be a Romulan...................
WTF is he basing that statement on?
I think it is about time the Veterans took care of Obama.
“That’s what America is about—is rebuilding.”
Another “stimulus package” before the election? Massive government deficit spending?
