MEMORIAL DAY - A DAY FOR POLITICIANS OR A DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

UPDATE:  I got a call this morning saying it was a good thing I did not go to the VFW lunch because it was filled with politicians seeking votes.  Pat Ahumada and Saenz among many others. My source told me the veterans were told about Pat Ahumada's alliance with the Imp and the Imp's comment

"The Imp on Veterans:
 
"Ha! Vets are okay in my book, although, yeah, sometimes they do whine, especially the Vietnam Conflict vets. They want a hospital in the Rio Grande Valley and they just can't seem to get it, so they whine."
 
ORIGINAL POST

Today at the VFW lunch politicians will line up to garner the support of veterans.  Magical words will be said to convince the veterans that they are behind them.  But yet every year another story of the dismal care veterans receive at the VA hospitals and clinics will break only to end in yet another round of circus like hearings before the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs.  If the dead could still vote in South Texas they also be lined up at the cemeteries.

Today families of both the Iraqi and Afghan wars will still be hurting from their fresh wounds, from the loss of loved ones. 
 
REPUBLICANS PLAYING MONDAY NIGHT QUARTERBACK ON IRAQ WAR THEREBY DIMINISHING THE LOSS OF SO MAY LOVED ONES

To a politician winning is everything.  They have no shame.  So now the Republican self anointed candidates for President in 2016, seem to be running from the Iraq war, as a necessary evil to gaining votes.

You do not get to send our loves ones to die on a lie, and then when you want our votes say "sorry I was part of the lie"

Everyone who died in these conflicts died for a purpose.  The fact even Jeb Bush is saying his brother's actions were a mistake, does not diminish the sacrifice of those who gave their life in these conflicts.

But it sickens me that these politicians for votes will put into question the merits of a war.

" Bush said with a twinge of annoyance while campaigning in Arizona. "I would have not engaged. I would not have gone into Iraq."

... .

As Bush struggled this week to address the issue, several Republican presidential prospects said definitively they would not have invaded Iraq based on information known today.
They include Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former technology executive Carly Fiorina, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and 2012 presidential candidate Rick Santorum.
 
"I don't know how that was a hard question," Santorum said shortly after addressing the Republican National Committee's spring meeting in Phoenix."
 

 It's bad enough that we must suffer the politicians using the day to invade our personal time, but now we must suffer their comments of "sorry I did not mean to send your loved ones to die, it was a mistake, vote for me."

A question to Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton- Knowing what you know now would you have pulled the troops out of Iraq?
