Well, Well Well, Obama finally shows his true colors. I have an article where Obama attended a Muslim conference but I guess the military is beneath him. He can support the Muslim community about building a mosque near ground zero but to his veterans, he give the middle finger.
I don't know if Perry is much of a better choice but it seems no one in Washington is taking an interest in attending the VFW convention. The VFW has done a lot for out brothers and sisters in the past making connections that other organizations have failed at. These vet organizations (AND I INCLUDE ALL) have taken a sincere interest in getting vets papers, getting appeals, getting vets together when compassion was needed, helping families, recognizing the men and women who have fought for their country and their service is invaluable. They have done more than the VA can. The list of the group of vet organizations from Purple Heart to Vietnam and the current wars heroes of our nation is due to these organizations and all they asked for was a representative! Guess the president has no interest in backing up these soldiers and this show it!

What else is NEW when it comes to Veterans of past wars or the wars of today and the men and women who are fighting for there lives.

Right NOW if it means NO money or millions of votes in the coming months Our Great President is not going to make a trip!
The NFL and it's players have given millions to our president and more on the way money wise and the same goes for the UAW giving millions for the re elect of Our President.

He only goes where $$$$ money is $$$$ and who is going to give him the most!
Trust me veterans are not in the rich side of life so we are on the side lines unless it's to give some kind of award and be seen on TV oh sorry Obama TV.

He has had more TV time then Clietne or GW ever had and and will keep his TV time going to get HIS votes.

I wrote a letter to Mr. Obama and he passed the letter on to the VA but the answers I wonted from the President I never got and the ones I did get from the VA was a fourm letter with big words and meaning nothing!

I have taken note that any thing to deal with Veterans is a NO go in chats / talks / or even show up ..........

Now tell him we have 89 million for him he dam sure will be on the jet to Texas or where ever but right NOW if it is not mean money for him then it's a NO go!
