Barack Obama never had the opportunity to help and protect this country the way our veterans have because Obama has never served in the military. He’s never been under pressure to make a life or death decision and he has never seen soldiers become wounded and fall to ground with their life in the hands of their military buddies who would give up their lives to save someone else’s.
Obama has been visiting countries, veteran’s hospitals, talking to friends and families of military soldiers. He has also been viewing the financial destruction that this war has put on our country.
Our country is in serious debt because of the outrageous cost of the war, prices have gone up, people are buying less, and people are losing jobs left and right.
There are no winners in this war. Our soldiers are coming home to a country in a serious recession. How are they going to get a good job when they leave the military if people are losing jobs left and right? How are they going to support themselves and their families?
Obama realizes all these serious issues and this is why he has been a fierce critic of the war in Iraq. Obama has not changed his view since he began campaigning. His views have remained the same. He believes this war has done nothing good for the country. He believes our soldiers need to come home and this war has to end.
The majority of the country agrees and supports Obama view on war. Almost everyone agrees that this war has not only brought pain and despair to the soldiers and their families, but it has hurt the entire nation. The nations capital needs to wake up and do something immediately because are nation is going down hill. We are borrowing money from other countries to support this war
Obama had said in one of his speeches, ”Let me be clear: I will let no one question my love of this country.” He loves our country; he just does not love what this war is doing to the country and to our soldiers. No one is winning this war. This country is not benefiting from this war in any way, shape or form.
Statistics show that veterans favor McCain over Obama 56 to 34 percent, according to a nationwide Gallup poll. Therefore, Obama had been trying to explain his deep love for our country and the brave soldiers who risk their lives each day to protect this country. He is trying to make Veterans see the war from the whole picture.
In an effort to bridge the gap and make veterans understand and agree with his view, he has been trying to explain the importance of unity. The country needs to bond together and make the appropriate decisions that will improve and help the country as a whole not just to benefit a few.
Obama has also been quoted saying, ”You all served together, fought together, and bled together under the same proud flag. You did not serve a red America or a blue America — you served the United States of America.”
Our country needs to work together to make the right decision that will help this country rise above all once again.
Obama’s also has quoted, ”I have never suggested or never will that Sen. McCain picks his positions on national security based on politics or personal ambition,” Obama said. “I have not suggested it because I believe that he genuinely wants to serve America‘s national interest. Now, it is time for him to acknowledge that I want to do the same.”
The GOP criticized Obama, a member of the veteran’s services committee, for voting against $120 billion for the war last year and for exaggerating his role in extending health benefits for wounded veterans.
Mike Musgrove, a 58-year-old Vietnam War veteran from Nevada, praised Obama for promising to make sure veterans receive adequate health care.
”He hasn’t been a senator all that long so he doesn’t have a long track record on veterans issues, we need to give him a chance.
As a former naval aviator and longtime VFW member, McCain had a natural affinity with the audience. Most of the seniors at the convention were closer in age to McCain, who will turn 72 later this month, than to Obama, who just turned 47.
Obama has said, the Iraqis to take responsibility for their political future and for the U.S. to ”finish” the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He blamed the Bush administration for failing to head off the military conflict between Russia and Georgia.
Obama has many good ideas to help this country. If we give him a chance to become leader of this nation, you will see that he will help this country function well, and the strength, reputation and financial wealth will rise above all.
