The president told the Park Service to barricade the World War II Memorial.
A bunch of veterans from Iowa and Missouri were flown in on an Honor Flight to recognize their contribution to our nation. The president used them as pawns to inflict as much damage as possible on his enemy, the Republicans. You see, the Park Service was closed down due to an impasse on renewing a continuing budget resolution.
One of the men in attendance was the father of a friend of mine. This vet is 89 years old. What are the odds of him making it back to Washington D.C. again?
The president didn’t care. He was willing to hurt these vets to get back at his enemy, the Republicans.
To their credit, the vets flung the barricades aside and entered this open air pavilion singing patriotic songs. Not even a man with the chutzpah of a Barack Obama dared have these heroes arrested. I’m sure he considered it, though.
The Republicans have passed a continuing resolution that delays funding for Obamacare for a year. Democrats disagree, so negotiation is called for. Obama refuses to negotiate, much like he did during the passage of the Affordable Care Act.
The Republicans tried to pass a bill that would keep all memorials and monuments open in tourists sites in Washington D.C.
Democrats blocked it.
Republicans tried passing a bill that funded all veterans programs.
Democrats blocked it.
Same thing for funding for the National Institute of Health.
Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama blocked it.
The strategy is clear: they want to hurt you. And then they want you to blame Republicans, even though Republicans keep trying to pass bills to avoid shutting down government services.
I wish Democrats would show as much resolve in dealing with Iran and Islamic terrorists. But they don’t. They don’t hate them as much as they hate Republicans.
In the meantime, the president and his party will allow you and me to be hurt by their unwillingness to negotiate with the party that represents a huge chunk of this country.
Never waste a good crisis, is the mantra of this Saul Alinsky crowd.

    At this point, I think the message is very clear: Barack Obama is the Democrat’s version of a lit bag of manure left on your front porch doorstep.

    Do you really think Obama personally told them to put up those barriers specifically to stop these veterans? I would really like to see proof of that. All these places have set procedures for these rare occasions. Do you think Obama ordered the closing of the road across Saylorville dam also?
    Did you notice that all those congressmen who were so quick to get their photo op with the veterans were hunkered down in their offices when shots were fired this afternoon. Ironically, those capital police protecting them are not getting paid but came in anyway because they had a job to do.
    All this could go away if only the Speaker would allow congress to vote on the Senate’s bill, yet these Republicans would rather drag it out with theatrics like blaming Obama for keeping WW2 Veterans from their memorial or showing pictures of women with cancer because let’s face it, there numbers are way down in the polls and they need to spin things to reflect that they are the ones who caused all this. All this mess because a few Republicans apparently couldn’t get Obamacare repealed under legitimate means as laid out in the Constitution. Apparently they chose to hold the whole country hostage. I have been a registered Republican since I could vote, but I am seriously thinking of changing sides.

      I see more bad-faith negotiating coming from Obama than Republicans, and it has been that way since day one.

    Let us not forget that Lord Obama personally killed Osama Bin Laden (reportedly with an American flag clenched in is teeth)! He also saved General Motors while simultaneously willing the oceans levels to recede! Surely you can’t think that He would ever be deceptive, manipulative or devious!? Blasphemy!!!
