Hillary Clinton is a lightning rod for conservative and far left critics alike. Attacks on her spotty record are far too easy. Yet her Memorial Day tweet has angered many of those who consider Clinton’s message an outright lie.
There’s nothing about her message that isn’t true. Veterans, Patriotic Americans, just about everyone considers the statement true. They simply don’t feel that Clinton has ever shown, through her actions, that she believes fallen heroes deserve much of anything.
Wright’s tweet target’s Clinton’s record on veterans’ benefits. What will she do if she’s given even more power as Commander-in-Chief?
Jahn’s voice echoes the same sentiment as the tweet above. Honoring the dead, which isn’t all that expensive or controversial, is much easier than honoring the veterans who are still with us, and those in active service now. Oh, and then there’s the inevitable reminder of Benghazi.
Nothing like a meme to sum up the emotional crux of the argument. All of what’s come out about Benghazi in the months since the tragedy has left Clinton struggling to defend her actions. And as more people talk about the events of that very long night, her actions seem even more criminal.
Clinton’s honesty is truly what’s being questioned. When we, the American people, see so much obfuscation in even simple messages, we begin to doubt everything. So when she claims to share our beliefs about honoring the men and women who gave their lives in the name of freedom, it reeks of opportunistic patriotism.
Benghazi is one issue, but it isn’t the only one. You don’t have to look too far for evidence that Clinton is simply out of touch. She’ll do the work for you. Everyone who has their eyes open knows we have issues with the VA–an agency which just accidentally declared more than 4,000 living veterans dead and cut off their benefits.
“You know, I don’t understand why we have such a problem [with VA Hospitals],” Clinton told MSNBC last fall, “because there have been a number of surveys of veterans, and overall, veterans who do get treated are satisfied with their treatment…”
Those that do get treatment. Those that aren’t killed off in the computer and shut out of treatment. Those who don’t die in line, waiting months for basic services. Those folks–overall–are satisfied.
