I am on call 24/7 and have been for several years. I worked other jobs before my current career that required 24/7 call. It's not some great sacrifice he is making. No one forced him to be president. He volunteered. Just like I accepted the on call part of my job.
You are an arrogant bastard. Yes, the man volunteered, as has every resident of the White House. That doesn't negate the fact that he's the one who gets to answer the red phone at 3 AM. Nothing that you are on call for measures up to that.

There is a great editorial in today's USA Today from an Iraqi War Vet.

Have a great New Year!

No problem. I'll check the column. No need to be defensive around me regarding military.

Thanks.

Tell that to the pediatric patient's parents when I get called into the ER at 3 AM and the kiddo codes. I might not command tanks, nuclear arms, or armies, but make no mistake about it my ass saves lives.

My phone might not be red but I'm not being paid nearly what Obama is paid nor do I have near the perks and bennis.

If I missed what it is that you said you did for a profession, I apologize. I save lives or allow death with dignity, that's part of the medical profession.

Your post screams to me that you're a little stressed or you need a red phone.

I'll remind everyone again, I'm not an idiot. I have been called many names before and that has not been one of them.

Heaven forbid that the conversation should ever morph to include an expanded discussion.

I think you ate some of Liz's Cheerios this morning.
