Today's Reading Assignment

In a recent post, Michelle Malkin absolutely nails the hypocrisy of President Obama--and the American left--on the Memorial Day holiday.

President Barack Obama saluted veterans and urged his countrymen to do the same this Memorial Day weekend, saying the nation has not always paid them proper respect.

In his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday, Obama said people can honor veterans by sending a letter or care package to troops overseas, volunteering at health clinics or taking supplies to a homeless veterans center. He said it could also mean something as simple as saying “thank you” to a veteran walking by on the street.

“We have a responsibility to serve all of them as well as they serve all of us,” Obama said. “And yet, all too often in recent years and decades, we, as a nation, have failed to live up to that responsibility. We have failed to give them the support they need or pay them the respect they deserve.

Who is this “we?” Let’s name names:

Tell it to
Janet Napolitano.

Tell it to the Gen. Betray Us smear merchants at Move On.

Tell it to the anti-military academics at Penn State and Columbia and every other ivy-covered institution.

Tell it to the anti-military recruiter thugs on campuses across the country.

Tell it to all the
Winter Soldier fakers and phonies .

Hear, hear.

I don't get the readership of Malkin, but I took my shot at that same sniveling speech from the Messiah here:

Just My 2¢ said...

As an alumnus, I had to click on the link referring to Penn State to see what was up. I'm glad to see that the university dealt with the problem.

I'm also glad to see that the Penn State Vets Organization (PSUVO) is still as active as it was in the 1970's when I attended.

Finally, I can't help but note that Penn State does a lot of military R&D, especially for the Navy.
