“Our fighting men and women – and the military families who love them – embody what is best in America,” Obama said. “And we have a responsibility to serve all of them as well as they serve all of us.”
“We have failed to give them the support they need or pay them the respect they deserve,” the president said. “That is a betrayal of the sacred trust that America has with all who wear – and all who have worn – the proud uniform of our country.”
I think it’s good that Obama finally admits how bad the left has treated the troops while they were at war in Iraq. He’s right, they haven’t supported them or paid them the respect they deserve. They’ve not only tried to surrender in Iraq and declared defeat before the troops even got a chance to do their job but tried to defund the effort while the troops were in the middle of the battle. And made disparaging comment after comment and even dissed their commander. Maybe now that Obama is finally supporting the troops, the rest of the Democrats will as well. How about it, lefties? You loving the troops more now that they are fighting for an American you can believe in?
