    I'm the DOO of a charity that helps returning troops and vets reintegrate to civilian society. The troops seem pretty happy with this president. The overwhelming majority were thrilled with repealing DADT for reasons I'm happy to cite.
    The women who have served talked a lot about a problem that had been getting worse and worse for years: Rape. Last year the servicewomen's group got it out publicly and approached Obama about it.
    With a Congress that seemed unable to agree on ANYTHING, he managed to get this one bill signed with overwhelming support. It is the strongest of it's kind to be passed in history. It took effect last month. There seems to be a lot of genuine admiration for two people at the VA: Obama and Paul. But not much for Newt, Mitt or Rick. Oh well.
    Good job Mr. President

    yes, your usual brilliance and and insight. Well as a veteran and someone who runs an NPO dedicated to helping those who have bravely served our country, I give a Fcuk.
    But hey, if you don't care about our veterans well, that says something about your "patriotism", doesn't it? So really, you're kind of small, inconsequential and party before our brave soldiers, aren't you? Yeah. We knew that.

    Never said I don't care about our veterans... for your information I volunteer a ton of time to helping wounded vets. Look up Wheelers For The Wounded, Texas.

    Stick your fake outrage up your keester OK?

    Too funny. IL claims to care about the vets. The Infidel does as well (and those of us who have been around here a while actually KNOW his involvement).

    But, IL finds partisanship more important than the activity s/he claims to support. And, even tells a fellow supporter to fuck off.

    Hmmmm.

    Thats all this 'law' is.... a distraction. May be just my opinion, but I cant help but be cynical of everything he does.
