So That’s What They Mean by Patriotism …

with one comment

Liberals or progressives or whatever we’re supposed to call them today always get incensed at the notion that someone, somewhere has ‘questioned their patriotism.’ Never mind that the person they are accusing of this heinous offense has never (as in never) done anything of the sort.

I’ll do it though. I’ll come right out and say it. President Obama is unpatriotic.

I’ll wait for the crowd to calm down (assuming it doesn’t tar and feather me).

Okay. Why do I say this? Because of the despicable notion that members of our military should  be billed for medical care for injuries sustained in the course of carrying out their military service.

The Obama administration is considering making veterans use private insurance to pay for treatment of combat and service-related injuries. The plan would be an about-face on what veterans believe is a long-standing pledge to pay for health care costs that result from their military service.

But in a White House meeting Monday, veterans groups apparently failed to persuade President Obama to take the plan off the table.

I call that unpatriotic. Shame on Obama.

Universal health care for all except our brave fighting men and women? The man is unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.

  1. Well, I said I’d give him a chance. So far all President Obama has done is taste his shoe leather. If George Bush has said or done half of the things that President Obama has said he would be burned by the left (leaving the efigy at home). I think he and Congress had better start cleaning up their acts or they might be really upset about the mid-term elections.
