    In 20 minutes you were able to read the citations of the 98 surviving Medal of Honor receipients let alone some of the 3,000 plus who have passed on?

    Since President Obama has such serious security issues I guess we won't be seeing much of him in public.

    The issue here is character, these men showed it. It is humbling to stand in their shadows. No matter how much paint you put on this "issue" it is still ugly. As I mentioned in 4 years we can hope for a Commander In Chief with more honor and character. The 98 surviving heroes deserve better than he has shown.

    Kevin,

    Your post is offensive. But, your attitude is what convinced the majority of Americans to vote for Barack Obama.

    You need to stop listening to the kooks on the far right. . .

    1. Obama was born in Hawaii (the last time I looked, that was a state).
    2. He spent a couple of years in a school in a Muslim country. Also, is there something wrong with being a Muslim. To be a good American, one must be a Christian????
    3. I doubt if George Washington wore a flag on his chest, either. Somehow during the Bush administration, we became unAmerican if we didn't "sport" the flag and unChristian if we didn't thump the Bible. The Founding Fathers would have a real problem with both.
    4. Diplomacy is the the technical term for meeting with your enemies.
    5. Nowhere in Obama's speeches or writings do I see any indication of wanting to give to the lazy. He may want to help people who can't help themselves, but there's nothing wrong with that. If so, you probably think it was okay for a 93 year old WWII veteran to freeze to death because he couldn't pay his electric bill.

    Tolerant and compassionate regards,

    M Remington

    Offensive to who? I named no name just quoted Yardley. So if anyone should be offended it would be him.

    Good points by the way this just came in, didn't take too much time to tell where this administration is headed:

    OMB Directs 'Substantial' Cut to FY-10 Budget Plan; Pentagon to Appeal
    The Obama administration has directed the Defense Department to pare back the fiscal year 2010 budget package prepared last year by the Pentagon, which added more than $60 billion -- including nearly $20 billion for weapon systems and modernization efforts --
    to the spending plan before President Bush left office, according to Pentagon officials.

    First, let's be clear that a cut to the defense department does not equate to a cut in veterans benefits. Second, the Bush administration left the new president a unprecedented deficit which will require spending cuts. Since the defense budget makes up as big a piece of the federal budget (21%) as any other (see http://www.cbpp.org/4-20-07tax2-f1.jpg) and another 60% of the budget is virtually untouchable there will have to be cuts to defense. Oh, and it sures looks like a bunch of the stimulus package is aimed at military infrastructure too.

    I have all the respect in the world for veterans and I would bet the President and VP do to.
    What a contrast here, this President is accused of having little character or respect for the military just because he did not go to the dance and sent his VP instead (whose son is serving). On the other hand we had Mr. "5 deferments but I am a hawk" Cheney and Mr. "my dad served honorably but I did not report for guard duty because I had other things to do" Bush who supposedly have more character on these issues. Talk about a double standard.
