Obama Mocks US Military Personnel This Is From The Man Who Is Commander-In-Chief?

Obama is Surprised [that] Vets do not want to pay their own Medical Expenses!

Here's his response when he backed-off his decision to let the military pay for their war injuries. What an empty headed person he is. Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans' private health insurance to cover the estimated $540 million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active duty.

The President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal..

"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute." "I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country," Obama continued. " (Just like the suicide bombers. sounds like his Muslim influences surfacing.) "I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."
