More Shameless Projection From Obama

This is just pitiful. I don't know about you, but I've paid my respects to veterans over the years, and not just on Memorial Day. But here you have a guy whose own party has constantly disrespected the military lecturing us about how veterans have been mistreated.

Hey pal, look at yourself and those who voted for you. Oh, and we don't have to be told to pay our respects. It comes naturally.

Geez, he is absolutely shameless.
President Barack Obama urged Americans to pay tribute to veterans on Memorial Day, saying the nation all too often has "failed to live up to that responsibility."

In his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday, Obama said people can honor veterans by sending a letter or care package to troops overseas, volunteering at health clinics or taking supplies to a homeless veterans center. He said it could also mean something as simple as saying "thank you" to a veteran walking by on the street.

"We have a responsibility to serve all of them as well as they serve all of us," Obama said. "And yet, all too often in recent years and decades, we, as a nation, have failed to live up to that responsibility. We have failed to give them the support they need or pay them the respect they deserve.

"That is a betrayal of the sacred trust that America has with all who wear and all who have worn the proud uniform of our country," he said.
Somehow I doubt he'd be saying these things if his TelePrompter didn't have the words on it.

There's been a whole lot of disrespect shown toward our military over the years, and it's all coming from the left.
