Gay black basketball players make better press releases than dead American heroes do.

Dead soldiers can't further the great one's agenda.Who needs a patriotic president anyway? God Bless all of our soldiers, living and dead.Some of us do appreciate and honor thier sacrifice.

Bill O'Rielly was correct for once, President Obama could cure cancer tomorrow and the right would still dislike him.

So, telling the truth is crazy?

Now we know why liberalism is a mental disorder.

No Ray, you aren't missing something, just a president showing his lack of morals, again.

Why do people insist on regurgitating emails? Make your own argument, Mr. Hartman. It will work better.

Are you missing something? Maybe; do you get that the President hates everything this country has ever stood for? If so, you're not missing anything.

Wait, he fired the acting IRS commissioner, who was quitting next month anyway, but is still allowed to hang around till then. I was so impressed!!!

How does the author know that President Obama has never called to console a military family? Do the haters on this forum know if gw ever did so? It was he, after all, that ordered most of them to their deaths... unnecessarily. Now go cut some more funding for food programs for hungry children, republicans..

Or we could have just aborted them before they had a chance to GET hungry.Maybe if thier parents could get one of those jobs Obama promised years ago those kids wouldn't be hungry.

The letter writer has convinced me to change my supportive view of Obama. I now know Obama hates soldiers and loves gay people.

It's always back to the hungry children. I don't know where you came up with that figure Buff, but 2.5 billion spread out over the whole country isn't a whole lot. There are plenty of organizations that can make up for shortfalls. And our huge government can never cut back on bureacracy can it?

Steelers, IMO, we spend app. 1 T annually on defense, as much as the rest of the entire planet combined.. but neocons want us to believe that cutting 1% on defense will enable the Chinese to waltz up on our shores.. we spend, according to the news story I heard this morning on this topic, 80 b a year on SNAP. Yet, that's where our noble congress people elected to cut.. they chose not to go after rich corporations who cheat on taxes, rich people with cayman accounts or people who defraud welfare. It doesn't sit well with me, that's it..

"When a soldier is killed in the line of duty, his family eventually gets a flag and a note conveying sympathy and respect from the United States Government.

When a pro basketball player announces he is gay, he immediately gets a personal phone call from the President of the United States congratulating him for his courage.
