I hope everyone enjoyed Memorial Day yesterday. The hot dogs. The hamburgers. Sitting around your grandparents or parents as they reminisced about their time in the service. They should all get a big thank you for everything that they did for this country so that we have the rights and freedoms that we do enjoy. So big thanks to you all. With that being said, why was I not surprised when some people took this day to throw shade and use this time to throw out their political agenda.
Yesterday, Nit Mitt strolled into my hood of San Diego along with John McCain to lay a wreath at the Veterans Memorial in Balboa Park. It was also a campaign stop. Romney used the moment to blast the Pres. on his plan to reduce the size of the military after the end of the U.S. combat role in Iraq and bringing the troops home from Afghanistan in 2014.
“We have two courses we can follow: One is to follow in the pathway of Europe, to shrink our military smaller and smaller to pay for our social needs. The other is to commit to preserve America as the strongest military in the world, second to none, with no comparable power anywhere in the world.”
Really Nit Mitt. You chose to use this day and a wreath laying ceremony to push your political agenda? Doesn’t the ‘wrong place, wrong time’ tag fit in this situation? And then you bring John McCain with you? The same guy that did this to you.
Then last night while I was watching TV, I see an ad for San Diego mayoral candidate Carl Demaio blasting California Rep. Bob Filner using…The President in his ad. They played this ad twice in a 3 minute span. It really got under my skin. This day was set aside for our veterans, not for campaign mud-slinging, stances on policy, or a photo opt so that you can get some delegates. This day was set aside for us to reflect on the men and women who died for our freedoms so that I can sit at my computer and write in my blog how crappy and self-centered these jackasses are for using their time to prop themselves. I don’t recall Nit Mitt serving in the military and I don’t think Mr. Demaio was ever in the military either. So what gives you the right to be so pompous that you would take your agenda to the streets on Memorial Day? Oh that’s right, the men and women who fought and died so that you can continue to disrespect them by not stopping your campaign machines for a day just for that one vote. Remember that gentleman when people go to the polls and they don’t vote you into office. It would just serve you right. Pompous asses!
