I love this!

When Obama arrived in Delaware on Thursday, these veterans were ready. But they weren't saluting, or cheering.

Who better than our veterans to exercise their freedom to do this? I loved the about face as well and am in the camp of showing the office complete respect... When it is deserved. It's been awhile.

Thanks for the share.

Gives a great point without a word being spoken.

I may have had to go full Braveheart though....

So... a handful of vets from Gun Rights Across America pulled a stunt because... (from source):


Obama’s not doing anything to protect our veterans. He wants to ban the importation of the AK-47 rifle, but he refuses to help our veterans who were shot at by them! I think I speak for all of us when I say, I can’t ever remember a U.S. President who has disrespected our men and women who have honorably served the nation they love, more than Barack Hussein Obama.


The ban on importing Kalashnikovs has nothing to do with gun control. Everyone knows that... right? As for the, "disrespected our men and women" bit, blah blah. How so? The problems with the VA have been going on for decades.

source - Military.com


DAYTON -- The Department of Veterans Affairs spends more today in inflation adjusted dollars than it did after World War II and the Vietnam War, when millions of troops returned from the battlefield, according to federal budget figures.

By the next fiscal year, the VA budget is projected to rise 58 percent since 2009 to $152.7 billion, more than double the $70.9 billion spent in 2005, agency figures show.


It sure as hell doesn't have to do with a lack of throwing money at the VA under this administration, does it? It has everything to do with the perception of disrespect that is manufactured by far right propaganda.

"He hates the troops!"
"He hates America!"

I guess we've all forgotten how anyone who didn't support war in Iraq (either) was accused of hating the troops?

Yes, I can agree that a lot of the outrage about the troops/VA is being exploited by the Right. That being said, I think that every president since the Vietnam war deserves to have the Vets turn their back to them.

We have really dropped the ball when it comes to taking care of the men and women that, regardless of the political motivations and desires of those in charge, went to war with the idea that they were fighting for a honorable cause.

It's not their fault that the wars were unnecessary. They did what was asked when they were called upon. We should honor that by taking care of them when they come back broken and bloodied.

Wish we could the politics aside on this issue.....and that is not directed at just you, my friend.

“I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

― Hillary Rodham Clinton

I honestly wonder if you'd be defending the president if it were Bush.

I've just about had it with vets.

Bunch of socialist moochers the lot of em.

Free health care, free money, free housing, free free free.

Sick of pandering to these losers, you did a job, you were paid for that job, you knew the risks going in. We don't owe them a thing.

And don't talk to me about them protecting our freedom, the last war that was true was WWII those vets deserve respect.

Rest of em are just moochers and socialists.

Exactly, I agree they are well within their rights to do this and obama prob deserves it just as every single president before him has.
These vets would have better care if we didn't spend all the money we could use for them fight a war every chance we get!

And this is really in response to the AK thing?? That in no way took any sort of gun out of your hands!
Wow... Guess when it comes to guns russia isn't really all that bad and we should financially support them!

OH it's MUCH worse than that for the Prog Messiah, I am just so VERY thankful NOBODY has BLOWN HIS HEAD off, as far as his escapades have insulted and killed us.
Of course I wouldn't expect some disfunctional people who are all SMOKED by the media to "GET" it but THAT is their problem when "the land of OZ" begins crashing down in about 6 months.
I can SAVOR their lamentations as we speak...

I sincerely wish you'd state that fact the next time you meet one. Hopefully, sooner than later.

So predictable that your boring.

the WH Occupant was most likely asleep as the caravan passed by the 1/4 mile line up of Vets in protest...

or if he even seen them, the turned backs just did not register to him... that was an American sign of contempt & he is a Kenyan, Communist, Muslim that invaded the country just as the 10s of thousands of 2yo-to 31 yo 'kids' are doing in this recent 'Obama Inspired' inundation of the border

It'll never happen.

We keep treating the vets like we have and fewer people are going to sign on. Who could blame them? When war does come to our shores (and it will) most folks can just sit and twiddle their thumbs while hell rains down on them. I'll be wondering how many folks will be b**tching about the AK's and VA's (too many) benefits then?

I never said Bush "hates the troops" or accused George Bush or any other conservative of "hating America." I never questioned the size of Bush's lapel flag pin and I've certainly never tried to prove that my opinion is more correct than somebody else's because I'm some how more patriotic.

I've never even said that I thought that George Bush was a bad person or intended to do harm. If I had to describe the man, I'd say he's a bit feckless and like other neocons, his economic theory is lacking (trickle-down economics). I've had some pretty bad things to say about Dick Cheney, but even then I don't think he "hates America." It's all just meaningless BS.

Point being, I don't need baseless appeals to emotion to say that Bush was a bad President or Dick Cheney is still lying about Iraq.

I see the point you were trying to make with that post, though others may not.

Clever.

Then there will be a draft,and the "Y" GENERATIONAL pukes will have their share of deaths and loss as WE have had it.
Maybe they'll figure it out then.Watch now the simpletons will say how they will LEAVE if that happens...
As if THEY could when the idiots FINALLY get a command structure that is political instead of practical.

OH and the US made AKs are a bit more PRICEY but better rifles anyway .
