A "very disturbed" President Obama has ordered his top aides to restore death benefits today for families of military service members killed in action.

"The president was very disturbed to learn of this problem," said White House press secretary Jay Carney. "The president expects this to be fixed today. He was not pleased."

"BS on Carney! Obama was disturbed he HAD to restore them."

Amen. Obomba's worried that he'll miss out on a few rounds of golf if he allows the families of dead solders to share in what he perceives is his "piece of the pie."

What an a*****e!

(1) Obama's SecDef DECIDED to withhold benefits, despite Congressional action on Sept 30th to ensure them
(2) The media is 100% ignoring this fact, and blaming Republicans for the loss of benefits. Just read any CNN, ABC or NBC article today to see that
(3) The public is 90% believing this blatant lie

This is whay The Koch Brothers, Trump and other GOP billionaires are idiots for not buying up as many TV networks as they can

Commandante Zero’s steaming turd of a SecDef chose today to make his fisrt appearance at Dover AFB in 8 months. He is no more fit to serve than his boss.

What a bunch of RAT bastard liars & reprobates, led by the liar in chief, 0dumb0shit! The only reason the death benefits are being restored is because even 0dumb0shit realized the American people might, just might, start to hold him accountable for the pain being inflicted on the American people because of the shut.

The gubmint could lay off fully 50% (or maybe even 75%) of the federal employees, not including the active military, and it would not affect us in the least. Instead 0dumb0shit's marching orders are to inflict pain upon the American people with his petty, vindictive actions. But withholding the death benefits? Yes, the liar in chief blinked and caved as he should have done from the very start.

No way I can take the blame for this, and those damned House Republicans are managing to blame it all on me. Damn. I am not pleased with the poll and focus group figures. Better order them to fix this now and sound all presidential.

An earlier edition of the New York Times cited DOD spokesperson as saying that Pentagon and DOD attys had conferred with the Dept. of Justice lawyers as well as White House Legal Advisors before withholding the payments.

[ Note: The current version @NYT has the same title but has been dramatically edited since the resulting fire storm swept the country. I stand by my earlier post citing the NYT article. Sadly I neglected to post the url or include a cut and paste direct quote. After all my years here, I should have known better. ]

Well, this was so over-the-top that even Obama had to back down.

I'll believe it when the checks clear, Laz. Until then, he hasn't "backed down" one effin' inch.

He got the first part he wanted: I don't think the families of the dead soldiers were at Dover, but Hagel was. He wanted to exclude them, and he did. We still haven't heard if anybody's been paid or if proper funerals have been arranged.

We're still in the "Obastard has promised" phase of the rehabilitation of this story. Screw him, no matter what he does it won't be good enough. (Spit!)
