� THIS MOST UNBELIEVABLE PRESIDENT. HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO REQUIRE THAT THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.� � � � Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans carry 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. "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."
Please pass this on to everyone including every vet and their families whom you know. How in the world did a person with this mindset become our Commander-in-Chief?
�REMEMBER THIS STATEMENT.... "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?"
If he thinks he will ever get another vote from an Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard service member or veteran of a military service he ought to think it over.. If you or a family member is or has served their country please pass this to them.
Please pass this to everyone. I'm guessing that other than the 20-25 percent hardcore liberals in the US, every thinking American�will agree that this is just another example illustrating why this is the worst president in American history. Remind everyone over and over how this man thinks, while he bows to the Saudi Arabian king.��

Someone sent this to my e-mail a while back. I believe I looked it up on Snoops to verify it, and it was not true.

There is no way President Obama said that. And I'm not saying that as one of his "supporters" either, because I am not a Democrat.
It is just too "out there" to be believable. No politician would say something that inflammatory, unless they were completely drunk. Even then, I don't think they would say something like that. It is too alienating. These are politicians we are talking about....they always say "the right thing;" it is their job to be "polished."

The fact reamains that Obama had a proposal to require our heroes to pay for the treatment of injuries sustained while serving this nation and all its citizens.
