      Shame on you. This is about Veterans, not just another place for you to spread your political views. Show some respect to the vets who may be reading this.

      @Howard, I'm sad to see that your feelings cloud the truth about the man and the office. I believe that history will judge him as one of Americas greatest commander-in-chiefs. I know that it is easy to be doubtful of our President and his policies based on the fact that very selfish and powerful people in this country can too easily sway public opinion and get their voices heard and acted on above others. So I don't blame you for your opinions, and if you are a veteran or are an active member of our military know that I very much cherish your service.

      Hey Howard!

      I just saw O Bummer with his hand over his heart!

      It wasn't while the National Anthem was being played,,,,

      Nor was it where all the other Liberals had their hand over their hearts before BHO became the person living in the white house,,,,,

      It wasn't over the Pledge of Allegience,,,,,

      It was at the Tomb of the Unknow Soldier!

      Wow,,, I bet he was hoping the Military that has sworn allegience to the Constitution of the USA,,,,

      would not act on his Unconstitutional acts in his last 3 years!

      And that the Unknown Soldiers wouldn't raise up from the dead and see him not placing his hand over his heart,,,,

      Pledging Alligence to the United States of America.....

      Wow,,,

      The LARGER-FRAMMED

      O Bummer said she never did like America,,, (it is a logical assumtion)

      I agree Howard!

      Obummer, Schummer, Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Snowe, Brown, Feinstien, Franken, Madam Babs of Califorina,,, Weiner, the Chappaquitic-Kid,the 2 Virginia Senators, the Nebraska Kick-Back dude, Both the Nelsons, etc, etc, etc are destroying America!

      • joe snuffy

        Don't forget the Clintons Howard. They are up to their necks in the plans to destroy the United States as those others you named.
        In November 2012, we all need to get out and CLEAN HOUSE of all Socialists from BOTH parties and make sure they never again hold a political office in this country. They are all traitors and should all be tried for treason and imprisoned.

      Hey Howard,,,

      Just wondering how many times has obama placed his hand over his heart in the last 3 years with respect to honoring the USA and Military Folk,,,

      I think today was his first time...

      Please correct me if I am wrong...

      USNavy here!

        Wrong!

        November 13, 2011 at 3:44 pm |
    • joe snuffy

      I agree with Howard. Socialists like Obama and his appointees are Destroying America and everything we stand for. The only thing Obama has accomplished is to violate our Constitution multiple times, support and defend the Fast and Furious efforts to destroy our second amendment rights, attempt to launder our tax dollars by giving it to companies that he and his advisors KNEW were going to go bankrupt. Where did that money go? Union payoffs perhaps? Obama's reelection war chest perhaps?
      Obama has been on a mission from George Soros to deliberately destroy our economy and make us a ripe target for a takeover. Obama and Hillary Clinton have been aiding the Muslim Brotherhood in their efforts to form a Caliphate that will destroy the State of Israel. Obama, Sunstein and Clinton are currently working a deal with the United Nations that will use a TREATY to overthrow our rights as citizens by the Constitution which Obama has yet to "support and defend".
      Is this what we really want for our country? In November 2012, we have the opportunity to throw ALL of the Socialists from BOTH parties out on the street. It is time to CLEAN HOUSE and We the People need to take back our Constitutional government once more.
      Will CNN ever report on this effort. Hardly. Soros is paying them off NOT to report on anything anti-socialist. How many viewers has CNN lost as a result of their Socialist leanings?

      Yes it does. Obama and all of his Socialist supporters dishonor our military members, both past and present.

      Hey Jean,,,

      Ms Obama wasn't proud of the USA until Barack became president.....

      Barack and Michele never liked the USA,,,

      Now Barack is killing Somolie Pirates,,, and Bin Laden and the Iraq Dude,,,,,

      He finally placed his hand over his heart at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier!

      (Makes me think that he knew how to do it before,,, somebody told him to do it today,,,,

      LOL)

      November 11, 2011 at 10:29 pm |
      • joe snuffy

        Obama did not kill any Somali pirates. SEAL team six did. Obama did not kill Osama bin Laden. SEAL team six did.

        Obama, Eric Holder and some of Obama's appointees in the Justice DID kill two Homeland Security employees though. One from ICE and the other one, Brian Terry, from the Border Patrol. Holder was so arrogant in the most recent Congressional hearings that he REFUSED to appologize for the death of agent Terry.
        Now, Holder is trying to do everything he can to hide the truth about Fast and Furious from We the People of the United States.

    • joe snuffy

      Obama, his appointees, and the Socialist movement in general are an insult and a slap in the face to those of us who have and are defending our country "from all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC."
      Obama and his socialists ARE the domestic enemies of the United States. Obama is a traitor to this country and all that we stand for. He needs to be arrested and tried for TREASON against We the People of this United States.

    Support our Veterans by going to The National Veterans Art Museum website to adopt a dog tag of one of our fallen service men and women. It supports art therapy for veterans from all campaigns. It is art by veterans from all campaigns. The museum is at 1801 South Indiana in Chicago.

    I am a Marine Corp veteran and I am proud to be standing next to everyone who served or is serving in the Armed Forces. No matter what your religious, political or orientation is, I still would gladly take a bullet for you.

    Howard! SHUT UP! I wish Somebody would take your right of 'freedom of speech'! You're an idiot! You shouldn't even have the right to write on a blog, speak a word above a whisper about todays' political arena, the President, his wife and family, his administration, his decisions, the Congress, or the lack thereof! You are nothing but an evil, hateful troll who's only mission is to come on here bringing hate, lies, controversy, character assassination, and disrespect to the President of the UNITED STATES!

      So Liz Carter of Georgia ... since I disagree with you and obama, you think I should loose my freedom of speech ???
      Maybe you think I should have to sit in the back of the bus ... or maybe you think I should be lynched from a tree. Liz, who in the HELL do you think you are ???
      Liz, you have no idea what America is about. You're just a Big Mouth broken record cheerleader for your messiah, barack obama. I served America in our military, resulting in an honorable discharge ... I've built a business and provided jobs for several other Ameircans ... I've paid taxes all my life, and never collected welfare, unemployment, or food stamps ... So Liz Carter in Georgia ... What have you done for this country, besides hero worshipping the person who is destroying our economy, lowering our credit rating, squandering Trillions of dollars of our hard earned tax dollars, redistributing other people's personal property, pitting half of America against the other half, going back on his promises of transparency, using Veteran's Day as another photo op to get reelected, etc., etc., etc. !!!
      So, Liz Carter in Georgia ... I think it's YOU who should SHUT UP !!!

    • joe snuffy

      WOW! It appears that Liz Carter is not a supporter of our first amendment rights to free speech. Of course she believes that she has that right. Nobody else does though. A typical Fascist Socialist way of doing business.
      Regardless of what Liz spouts off with, I as a white guy, support Herman Cain. I support him because he has a real plan that does not include selling our country out to a Fascist Socialist Emperor. I support Mr. Cain because he believes in a Constitutional government ruled by laws and not by socialist edict. I support Mr. Cain because he KNOWS like many others that Obama has deliberately trying to destroy our economy and make all of the people totally dependent on a Socialist government.
      I really don't care anything about color. I am not a racist but it appears that Liz is. Obama wants all blacks to be the SLAVES of the socialist movement. Cain doesn't want anybody to be a slave to anything. He wants people to have the choice to either sit on their butts and do nothing OR to get off their butts, get a job and make something of themselves. They have the freedom to choose which path they want to be on. Under Socialism, there is not choice.
      Get with the program Liz. Stop being a racist.

    ...Has THIS SAME PRESIDENT not taken the opportunity as EVERY OTHER previous President has done to honor the troops and veterans on today...VETERANS DAY, you would have been THE FIRST ONE out here screaming about it! You'd be sitting behind your computer, hiding out typing stuff like...'Oh see ya'll...he doesn't care about our troops nor our veterans'! 'He cares less about our military'.

For what section/class of OUR country and it's citizenery did you serve along with others of all races, colors and creeds? The RICH? I just got back from eating a courtesy dinner at 'Applebees' with my husband who served in VIETNAM as a marine from 1969-1972. So where's your code of honor loyalty and respect to the Flag and C-I-C?!

I'm an intelligent, 63 year old, educated, experienced in the ARTS of racists tactics, and cultural 'systemic' setups of the same AFRICAN AMERICAN woman! You and your kind don't fool me one iota!

      I'm sure you get people to back down in response to your continuous, and baseless accusations of racism ... but, I can see you for what you are, and it won't work on me. You are a racist, who tries to intimidate everybody who disagrees with you, or disagrees with obama, by calling them racists. It's also obvious that the only reason you are such a zealous supporter of obama, is because he is black. To you, it doesn't matter how much obama keeps screwing up, over and over again. You will always blindly defend him, simply because he is black. This is why it's you who are the racist.

    If Barack H Obama had been an 'elected' WHITE President, gone in behind BUSH, trying to fix this s***, you and the rest of your ILK wouldn't be opening your mouths saying a word! You'd be defending his ideas and rallying around him, hoping and praying that something would work! You wouldn't even a little bit, be demeaning, picking apart, wishfully and hopefully tearing down each and everything he comes up with to FAILURE! You couldn't be a REAL LOYAL PATRIOT of the US of A! You are a racist treasonist!

    November 12, 2011 at 12:32 am |
    • Howard

      No matter what color barack obama was, he'd be a rotten President. I don't care what color you are either, but one thing you have made extremely obvious, and that is that you are a RACIST. Everything you write is about race. You counter every criticism, and every opposing point of view with accusations of racism. If a candidate has to be black for you to consider them worthy of the Presidency, then at least elect someone who is worthy of respect ... someone who has accomplished something of value ... someone like Herman Cain ... not an empty suit, with terrible judgement, like barack obama.

    pulling out of Iraq and leaving it to Iran and the radicals after our troops sacrifice don't sound like honoring our troops and country to me...quite the opposite. Also, turning our troops over to the control of NATO to depose the Lybian leader to be replaced by more radicals isn't honoring our military. Time to put an American with an American brain in the white house. America is great and we need to act like it!

    November 12, 2011 at 11:45 am |
    • joe snuffy

      I agree with you Jerry. Obama knows that Iran will take over Iraq. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama was in on the negotiations between Al Maliki, Al Sady and Obamadinijab when they created the takeover plan. When Iran finally does move in, it will also acquire all the BILLIONS of dollars worth of our work and our military and civil equipment and upgrades that we have provided to the Iraqi government.
      Everything that Commie Obama does, is an insult to all military personnel who have sworn the oath to "Support and Defend the CONSTITUTION of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC."
      Obama and his appointees ARE the very domestic enemies that we all swore to defend our Constitution from. Obama wants to destroy that as well. He wants to remove ALL of our rights guaranteed by our Constitution.
      As I said. Obama the traitor IS the enemy of our country.

    Herman Cain!?..LOL! Whatever he's accomplished was off the backs and voices of people like me...crying out, and pointing out the double-standards and unequalness of a level playing field for all AMERICANS! People who did not go to sleep, have not gone to sleep, and who refuse to go to sleep or turn a blind eye to the truth of its continued existance in this nation is how Cain was afforded any personal growth! He told you himself he didn't do anything..his daddy told him to shut up, sit down and 'BEHAVE'!

  14. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Now for you to try to flip the script back on me for calling a duck a duck and it IS, that's typical of people like you. Barack Obama has more sense than you, me, and many on this blog. Black doesn't make a good President for me..it couldn't have..we've had 43 white ones and out of that whole 'lot', I believe we have had 'a few good men'! And of the ones that I disagreed with, I found myself respecting them anyway because they were still MY President and I was taught to respect the 'office' if nothing else.

    November 12, 2011 at 1:21 pm |
    • Howard

      LIZ ... there you go making this all about race again ... when it's not. And, as far as respect is concerned, eveybody, even your precious obama, has to EARN respect. It shouldn't be heaped upon someone, simply because of the office they hold.
      And, as far as what a good job you say he's been doing, I see it differently ...
      Instead of continuing his non-stop demands for Americans to give up a portion of their incomes ... why doesn't this fool just stop spending and squandering America's hard earned money on stupid expenditures??? Obama has increased our national debt by 4 TRILLION dollars in just 3 years. He sends Billions to countries who hate us. He uses crony capitalism to irresponsibly throw billions down 'green' rat holes. He forces through Trillion dollar unconstitutional, corrupt, 'pass it to see what's in it', pork laden, legislation, which is destroying our economy. He uses the failed, bankrupt policies of Europe, as a blueprint for America's fragile economy. He gets America's credit rating to drop, for the first time in 50 years. All this, and more, while he and Michelle throw OUR hard money around like water, on their extravagant personal trips, parties, and indulgences. The only way to save America, is to throw this lying scoundrel out of office.

    How about showing respect also for those who were murdered and setting in jail for doing their job?
    People also are interested in the Obama, Eric Holder and Diaz scandal. Why Obama along with Eric Holder had Border Patrol Agent Jesus Diaz arrested for handcuffing a fifteen year old drug smuggler? There were no visible burses, neither did he complain that he was in pain. So why did they agree to arrest Diaz, deny him of two years, (sitting now in solitary confinement for two years) of his life?
    Why isn’t Obama and Eric Holder behind bars? Obama for the assassination orders that killed a U.S citizen and his 16 year old son, and Eric Holder for the murder of the 40 year old Border Patrol because of the thousands of assault weapons that were handed over to the drug lords?
    These incompetent people should be thrown out of office and sentence to jail, they all have blood dripping from their hands?

    Your accusation against me that I have no idea what America is all about is assinine! I probably know more about what America is about than YOU do! I grew up in Americas' racism and bigotry! I come from a heritage of military background; I worked in the federal government for 32 years, retiring in 2002. I also worked part-time jobs in local government and private industry. I read, watch the news; was taught to keep up with politics and politicians on all levels; taught to LISTEN closely with discernment.

      Liz ... I should have known your spent 32 years on the public dole !!! No wonder you love obama's redistribution of America's wealth to the public workers and their unions. Government employees merely have to show up, to get their guaranteed pay raises and pensions ... which now are higher than the hard working private sector tax payers, who pay their salaries ... and, no matter how horrible government workers perform, obama's unions make it impossible to fire them. Liz ... your postings are passionate, but they've got more errors and untruths than carter's got liver pills. Furthermore, it's obvious that you think your race gives you a free pass, and a justification to accuse everyone who doesn't agree with you, of being a racist. All of this however, doesn't take away from the fact that your boy obama is the worst President in the hIstory of the United states. In addition to thinking he, and his corrupt administration, Eric Holder included, are above the law, he disregards our constitution, congress, and he thinks the resources of the American people are HIS !!! Instead of continuing his non-stop demands for Americans to give up a portion of their incomes ... why doesn't this fool just stop spending and squandering America's hard earned money on stupid expenditures??? Obama has increased our national debt by 4 TRILLION dollars in just 3 years. He sends Billions to countries who hate us. He uses crony capitalism to irresponsibly throw billions down 'green' rat holes. He forces through Trillion dollar unconstitutional, corrupt, 'pass it to see what's in it', pork laden, legislation, which is destroying our economy. He uses the failed, bankrupt policies of Europe, as a blueprint for America's fragile economy. He gets America's credit rating to drop, for the first time in 50 years. All this, and more, while he and Michelle throw OUR hard money around like water, on their extravagant personal trips, parties, and indulgences. The only way to save America, is to throw this lying scoundrel out of office.

    Your snide about you riding in the back of the bus and hanging from trees puts the nail in the coffin for you, buddy! I know you knew all about it, but you think you're so superior and supreme that you couldn't be forced to huh? Now that's racist! It's ok for me and OBAMA to have had to ride in the back and hang from trees...but YOU...NO WAY! You all will die and go to hell before you succomb to your inevitable fate of karma, but it will come..one way or the other! That's why you're spewing distraction now!

    Jerry...there are millions of Americans who have kicked, screamed, and hollered just the opposite of what you just said! They were crying that he was taking to long to bring the troops out...they wanted them out long ago! AMERICA has been a member of NATO since its inception...our troops are and have always been subjected to NATO as have the militaries of the other members. Do you mean an another American with an American brain like all of the other 'BRAINS' who set this whole fire a'blazing? I think not!!

    One more thing Mr Howard..I was a cheerleader for JFK, Carter and Clinton. I was one for Gore. I actually voted for Ronald Reagan, so I guess according to your logic, it was because they were white?!? You are a sap if you think I'm that shallow. BTW...Why is it that since I'm so 'black conscious'..I resent your 'boy' Herman Cain aka 'the real black man' as per his own words? The 'black' one you suggested I should pull for?..LOL! The ACCOMPLISHED 'annointed one' sent up by the supremacist TEAPARTY/GOP! LOL!

      SUPREMACIST TEA PARTY???? Where on earth did that come from? They are Constitutionalists, not supremacists. Pull your head out of where ever it is and see the light. You have definitely been seriously misled. The Tea Party wants ALL PEOPLE to retain all of their rights under the Constitution. The Socialists want to remove your rights and make you a slave who is totally dependent on the government.
      Get over yourself. You are on the wrong path.

        Constitutionalists my foot. Most haven't the smarts to read and understand the document. Basically, the teapotty people are Nazis who want to eliminate anyone who disagrees with them.

        I agree with Liz...what you basically are saying is you believe in a homegrown terrorist militia group.

    Liz ... I tried to respond to your posting, but apparently, you got your wish, and CNN moderators CENSORED my comments. It's become quite apparent that if you express an opinion that disagrees with CNN's political policies, you become the victim of their censorship. Usually, in order to control their message, CNN simply cheery picks the blog postings they like, and then closed the comments on a story. What a mockery of free speech, and our first amendment !!!

    Are you jealous? Could you NOT pass the FEDERAL ENTRANCE EXAM or the CIVIL SERVICE TEST? You are probably to stupid to realize that the federal government has been an 'EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER' for years...and YES!..we paid taxes out of our salaries sponsored by the 'public dole'! Looks like we paid ourselves, as well as subsized the public private sector! ...and who do you designate to be the 'servants' of the 'FEDS' other than federal workers, Howard? The private sector? Tell me how that works, hater?

    You may need to be lodging your jealousy and hate towards the 'Federal Workers' you elected to Congress; especially the 'do-nothing' HOUSE! Many who for years have been sitting up there many terms doing nothing!..boo-coo vacations, expense accounts and are set for the rest of their lives unless they resign or get kicked out for cause! 'PUBLIC DOLE' HUH? BTW..it's a BIGGER DOLING than what was 'doled' to me 32 yrs! There may be a few who've actually 'WORKED' over 30 years in DC! Talk about SHOWING UP! LOL!

    Did you catch the posture of the so called leader of the USA? Shoulders shrugged, attitude "lets get this over" eyes everywhere but where they should be. No surprise, he said he burnt our flag, didn't respect our national anthem. Please America get smart this November, vote him OUT!!!
