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.

Anyone notice how, at this point, his lovely wife Mooshy has all but left her anti-obesity campaign behind and has instead
bifurcated herself and her image,into a “let’s care for the Veterans” spokesperson?
Meanwhile, Romney sits quietly in a darkened closet, with his thumb up his backside.
What a waste of time and money. If Romney isn’t up for the fight, he should have never applied for the damn job.
I can’t stand Romney, but I hate Obama’s guts. Romney is driving me crazy with his sheep in sheep’s clothing act.
If Romney truly wants to win, he needs to get on the offensive and he needs to do it NOW.
112 days until this goofy game is over....
Obama is a squirmy worm...
Yet Obama already cut veterans’ benefits.
It is pretty hard to haul around that Sumo Wrestler body and, with a straight face, tell everyone how they need to stop eating so much.
Even with the Communist Dem's there is only so much before even they can tell the lies are not working and that the emperor has no clothes.
No one would ever believe that the current administration wants to increase U.S. military veterans medical fees after hearing President Obama say on Memorial Day during a thoughtful speech at the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., Lets resolve to take care of our veterans as well as theyve taken care of us not just talk, but actions. Not just in the first five years after a war, but the first five decades.
Based upon President Obamas own words, this Memorial Day message exemplifies a hypocritical and misleading statement. It clearly implies our veterans are going to be cared for under this administration. His feel good statement on such a symbolic day of remembrance, dedicated to those who have sacrificed their lives for our country, is insulting to surviving veterans who trust our Commander in Chief has their best interests at heart.
Here is the evidence that demonstrates the contrary: Earlier this year, Pentagon budget officials came under fire for their efforts to hike medical insurance (Tricare) fees on U.S. military veterans. Fortunately, Congressional committees in the Republican-controlled House and the Democratic-controlled Senate blocked those fee increases while considering defense appropriations bills.
However, if you thought that debate was over, the Obama administration hasnt given up in their efforts to demand more from our veterans wallets. From the Washington Free Beacon:
Theres no question the explosion of federal spending over the last decade is completely unsustainable. Whats alarming is that the Obama administration thinks its appropriate to demand that veterans pay more for their care, while ignoring the much larger programs that are driving the growth in federal spending.
Obama you are an IDIOT.
You have been President for over 3 years and our veterans have NOT been getting the care they need. Then on top YOU want to charge them more for their insurance......
Do you really think that we all are as dumb as Joe Biden?
Tricare (AKA Scare Care, No Care, Who Cares) is a health care plan I got when I retired over 16 years ago. I have Tricare Prime which I pay about $250 per year. They want to increase it to over $2000 per year. The problem is I don’t know what they Pay. I have Blue Cross and Blue Shield as the primary, then Tricare Prime and Tricare. I never get a statement from Tricare Prime or Tricare as to how much they pay. My wife on the other hand gets statements from Tricare where they pay $.79 or $1.98 on a $125 medical bill. A lot of medical facilities do not accept Tricare because a) they pay pennies on the dollar, or b) they take months to pay. Maybe some other vets out there have had better dealings with Tricare than I had.
Being a Vietnam Veteran this half white, homo, poser isn’t fit to scrape sh!t off my boots.
He hates the American military and all that it stands for.
Obamboo hurts the very people he is pretending to help.
Transference is what Dems do best.
