It is no secret about Obama’s belief that America owes the world an apology because we have been successful and blessed to enjoy a standard of life that far exceeds most of the rest of the world. It is also no secret that Obama accuses America of practicing colonialism and same is the reason for her success. And it has been made abundantly clear that he has no respect for our military.
He has gone to great lengths to sabotage the integrity of our military even as far as making homosexuality in the military the equivalent of bars on shoulders. He has used our military academies as back drops to boast himself as a tin leader. He has alerted the media so they could be present to afford him photo-ops as the bodies of our brave warriors are off-loaded from military transports. He has accused our military of heinous acts. His surrogates have placed the interests of terrorists above the interest and safety of our military. And Obama’s henchmen have worked behind the scenes to deny our military the ability to vote by not mailing ballots in time for many to have their votes counted. And let’s not mention his mac-daddy, hip-hop, ghetto swagger and chest bump–can’t get much more presidential than that, (sarcasm also intended).
The list of the insults Obama has effected on our military and their families goes back years, but nothing makes me angrier than what Obama is doing and has done to those who suffered the terrorist attack by Nidal Hasan. Obama’s actions are an insult for which he should be driven from office in shame.
His actions from the very beginning have been an insult to our military. He told Congress that they should not leap to conclusions or make public statements condemning Hasan as a Muslim terrorist. I’m not making it up–that’s what he said. But that pales in comparison to what he is doing to those attacked by Hasan.
The wife of Sgt. Shawn Manning is fighting for official military recognition for the victims of the attack. Her husband was shot six times by Hasan while Shawn was serving on-duty at Fort Hood.
Now, thanks to the yeoman efforts of Sgt. Manning’s wife, information is coming out that Obama has not only ignored those wounded and murdered, but he has refused to acknowledge their sacrifice.
Victor Medina, writing for the Examiner.com, reported: “Although Sgt. Manning barely survived the attack, neither he nor any of those wounded and killed have been given combat status for the event. That means they are not eligible for military honors such as the Purple Heart.” (http://www.examiner.com/article/wife-of-ft-hood-victim-obama-ignore...)
Medina further reported that, “Despite the efforts of many Republicans in Congress to give combat status to the Ft. Hood victims, the Obama administration continues to insist the event was domestic workplace violence. This insistence comes even after the government learned Hasan had exchanged emails with Al Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki before the attack.”
Medina wrote that the latest denial came in May, when the Obama White House threatened to veto the National Defense Authorization Act when they stated, “The administration objects to section 552, which would grant Purple Hearts to the victims of the shooting incidents in Fort Hood, Texas.” The Act has yet to be voted on by the Democratic-controlled Senate after approval by the Republican-controlled House.
Why is this significant, you ask? It’s significant because it makes a demonstrable difference in the amount of compensation our military people (who were attacked by terrorist scum that our tax-dollars trained and schooled) receive. I should here note that Hasan continues to receive his $6,000 per month military salary as he awaits trial.
Over two years later and despite numerous efforts by Mrs. Manning and Senator Patty Murray, who is at the head of the Armed Forces Committee, Obama has done absolutely nothing. He will not so much as acknowledge them.
Obama also took criticism for his initial response to the shooting. “Hours after the shooting occurred, the President spoke publicly for the first time at a conference hosted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Instead of immediately addressing the tragedy, he took a lighthearted tone, thanking staffers and sending a ‘shout-out’ to at least one attendee. After three minutes of acknowledging people, the President finally mentioned the shooting, upsetting many over his cavalier tone. His failure to recognize the event as a terrorist attack and a military action upsets them even more.”
Our men and women in uniform deserve better than Obama. He should be ashamed to have his wife, who was captured saying “all this for a damn flag” during a remembrance of those murdered by Muslims on 9/11, doing commercials pretending to care about our military.
We have watched Obama and his entire administration show their contempt for our fallen border guards. And in the wake of Obama’s lies and cover-up pursuant to the Benghazi murders, Obama and his administration continue to lie and obfuscate about the circumstances surrounding the murder of Sean Smith, a computer specialist at the American consulate there.
Smith’s mother said she was promised by even Obama himself that she would be given answers as to why her son is dead. At the time of this writing, Mrs. Smith is still waiting.
Obama doesn’t have the decency to send original condolence letters. He instead sent tacky form letters that some say had been signed electronically.
But Obama made it a point to personally call Sandra Fluke, the woman who wanted tax payers to provide for birth control pills and abortions as needed for her lascivious and immoral lifestyle. It seems that Obama is always ready to support the most base elements of society and to bow before terrorists, but he is not only unwilling to keep his promises to military families–he won’t even send them an original card. Just how pathetic and loathsome is that?
