I Didn't Think I Could Think Any Less of Him, But...

I have no words for how despicable it is when our president exploits a massacre on an Army base for the purpose of passing nationalized health care. NO words.

President Obama invoked the Fort Hood shootings in an emotional appeal to Democrats to pass health care reform today, contrasting the sacrifices of soldiers with political positioning.

The impassioned pitch to the entire Democratic caucus came hours before the House vote tonight on the signature issue of Obama’s presidency, with Democratic leaders struggling to keep members from conservative districts on board.

“He was absolutely inspiring. In a very moving way, he reminded us what sacrifice really is,” said New Jersey Rep. Rob Andrews, estimating the persuader-in-chief turned several votes.

“Sacrifice is not casting a vote that might lose an election for you; it is the sacrifice that someone makes when they wear the uniform of this country and that unfortunately a number of people made this week,” said Andrews.

Soldiers didn't sacrifice themselves at all in this case. Some nutjob in dirty pajamas killed them on their home turf because he didn't want to be deployed. I think Obama needs that 'free' healthcare' so he can get his head examined. What a lowlife empty suit. The people who listen to him aren't much better either.

What sacrifice did those Democrat bastards and prostitute from New Orleans make, when the voted for Health Care Bill? They didn't sacrifice a damned thing, the actually got something in return. What that something is is yet to be seen.

A soldier's sacrifice is done through self-less service, asking for nothing in return.
