Says president hurts military


In his Christmas message to Americans, our wonderful president said that special consideration should be given to the military and their families. This is the same president who just a few months ago barricaded the World War II memorial and denied access to disabled and aged veterans who had traveled many miles to see the memorial that they had helped to build. He is also the same president who just a few days ago signed legislation that will cut the retirement pay of veterans who have honorably served our country. He is also working on a plan to close all state-side commissaries.

Although President Obama never seems to hesitate in doling out money to bail out labor unions or to fund some shaky green energy project, I believe he never seems to miss any opportunity to stick it to our military.
