Acta Non Verba

We take care of our veterans.  We take care of your families.  Not just by saluting you on one day, once a year, but by fighting for you and your families every day of every year.

The White House and the Department of the Interior rejected a request from Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office to have World War II veterans visit the World War II memorial in Washington, the Mississippi Republican told The Daily Caller Tuesday.

    Obama has been able to ride the coattails of personal approval since 2007. “He’s smarter than anyone else,” “Look at what a good father he is,” “What a great communicator!” while his failures have been written off as either bad luck–“It’s Bush’s Bush’s fault!” Or, “Those dang Tea Party Party Republicans are such obstructionists!”

    In the last budget battle though, he overplayed his hand. Now I’m hearing from regular folks, even formerly strong supporters, “What an a__hole!”

    Once people conclude that he’s a jerk, they have a lot more permission to blame him for policy blunders. Jerk becomes arrogant, petty jerk in short order. The next leap is from unlucky to incompetent to dishonest.

    Americans are remarkably forgiving of our politicians, but once they conclude that Obama can’t be trusted, there’s no going back.

    Here’s how they are taking care of veterans and their families:

    Not sure whether to be cynical or relieved: while (in theory) all adult children are eligible for obamacare until 26, military dependent children get kicked out of Tricare coverage at 21 (or 23 if full-time students) because, you know, Tricare is such a sweet deal that all children should be put into something more expensive for the parents. So much for keeping my plan… (Of course, for years, my plan had been that they are on their own when they move out.) I guess only the military can raise children that are strong and focused enough to move out and take responsibility for themselves and not sponge off of their parents until 26.

    Funny, since I keep reading about how they are going to raise Tricare rates because we have been ripping the government off on that free health-care for life thing I read about somewhere in one of those pieces of paper I signed. Can’t wait for the rates to raise AND my daughters get kicked out of it!
