HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO
LET THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.

WHAT AN EMPTY HEADED PERSON HE MUST BE....

Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon
Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require
Veterans carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540 million
annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military
personnel received during their tours on active duty. The President
admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal.

"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody
made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risk s.
Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't
compute.." "I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country,
"Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the
country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that
the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's
deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."

(I found myself asking what Obama is doing to "help reduce the
Nation’s deficit"????)

Please pass this on to every one including every vet and their
families whom you know.

How in the world did a person with this mindset become our
leader? I didn't vote for him!!!

REMEMBER THIS STATEMENT... "Nobody made these guys go to war.
They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing
the costs of their choice?

This sounds like BS to me, but I'd love to print it and show it at work if it's legit.

Pretty sure it's false

I doubt Obama's dumb enough to make that statement in public. I believe it's what's in his heart, especially thinking vets should be the first to sacrifice a little more when him and his cronies have never understood what the word means, but I don't think we should post statements like this without trying to verify their authenticity. If we always stick with facts and leave the emotion and falsehoods to the libs, then we will have right (and a shitload of guns) on our side.

Here's Snopes, too.

I know he proposed it, but as I said, even though he may think this, he's not dumb enough to say it in public.

SNOPES

Run by two anti-gun registered Democrat Jews out of Kalifornia.

Always check on those who presume to check the "facts".
