A spokesman for a leading veterans organization criticized MSNBC’s Chris Hayes for arguing on his television show that that he’s “uncomfortable” describing American soldiers who died in battles as heroes.
Of course, the as MSNBC, so what, five people actually saw it? Nevertheless, today is the day we remember those who died so asshats Hayes and say what they want. Or perhaps Hayes would feel more comfortable in a place like – I don’t know… Cuba? Someplace that appreciates his Anti-Americanism.
And yes – fallen soldiers are heroes. Progressive windbags not withstanding.
On a related note, the Washington (com)Post has a story up pointing out that that Obama will be at Arlington today
trying to take credit for “honoring” our fallen soldiers. I think when he sets his Chicago dirtied shoes on the sacred soil he desecrates that hallowed ground. If he wanted to to really honor our heroes he would stay away. Apparently I am not the only one who thinks Obama is the “Commander-in-Chump.”
U.S. veterans, about 13% of the adult population and consisting mostly of older men, support Mitt Romney over Barack Obama for president by 58% to 34%, while nonveterans give Obama a four-percentage-point edge.
They know exactly what Obama is. And they will vote.
