Another Winning Argument From Obama in the Campaign Bomb-Throwing Stakes

Obama Suggests Romney Wouldn’t Take Proper Care of Veterans

Oh, yeah. Yeah, he did. That’s got some real appeal coming from a guy with real mil-cred

In campaign remarks this afternoon in San Antonio, Texas, President Obama made a national security case for a strong economy and suggested that his opponent, Mitt Romney, won’t take proper care of veterans if he’s elected president.

…Then, the president of the United States segued into attacking his opponent, Romney:

“That’s the difference between myself and my opponent: As long as I’m commander in chief we’re going to make sure that our veterans are properly cared for,” Obama said, suggesting that Romney, if he becomes president, won’t take proper care of veterans. “And we have expand our funding and improved how we are working with our veterans. But we’ve got more work to do, and that requires resources. We’re sure not going to spend that money better on tax cuts for me.

I want to make sure that a young man or woman who has served our country, who has fought for us, they shouldn’t have to fight for a job or a roof over their heads when they come home.”

All quiet on the Weasel Front didn’t last long, though. I guess somebody told the Romney campaign that Obama’d run his jibs, because they came back with a pretty good jab:

UPDATE: The Romney campaign responds:

“Under President Obama, Americans have suffered from one of the worst job markets in recorded history – and our nation’s veterans have been among the hardest hit,” Amanda Henneberg, a Romney campaign spokesman, says. “With more than twelve percent of veterans struggling to find work and nearly a million veterans unemployed, the President signed a law that could force nearly a quarter million troops out of the service. It’s clear that we need to do more to grow our economy and ensure that our troops aren’t sent from the front lines to the unemployment lines.”

    Obama’s dictating the terms of this campaign. Romney’d better get his act together, and fast.

  2. Ironic, considering the Prez couldn’t be bothered to stop at ANY of the military bases here. I guess fundraising with Eva Longoria left him exhausted.

    Bam’s campaign is beginning to resemble a game of ‘whack-a-mole’: he keeps popping up with one lie after another and keeps getting hammered down.
