A tale of burial and betrayal

Cpl Bordoni’s casket leaves church after funeral on April 12, 2012

Cpl Bordoni’s comrades and wife as hearse leaves for cemetery on April 12, 2012

but I can’t see them. Too many tears.

I was confirmed into my Catholic faith in that church. I went to school and catechism classes with members of the Bordoni clan. Two of my kids have uniforms exactly like those in the photo. Two of my kids are on deployment.

How can I look at that flag-draped casket, grieving comrades, wife in black and not see one of my own? One of the pictures shows the mom. I couldn’t deal with copying that one. Waaaay too close to home.

And now, I must apologize for putting a political spin on this sad event. But it is precisely because this does hit so close to home that I feel more passionate than ever about getting true patriots into office in Washington.

First Lady Michelle has pranced around the country touting her alleged support for military families and, back in 2008, Barack speechified compassionately about the importance of upgrading services for our wounded warriors who deserve the best we have to offer.

Well … not so much “compassionately” as “sneering at Republicans for not having done enough, but Hope And Change Would Fix All That.”

Yet now, even as the DemocRats continue to shovel funding into their cronies’ pockets by the millions and billions, they are cutting funding and services for wounded warriors, supposedly because of the urgent need to “reduce the deficit.”  Yeah, right … just like how stealing millions from the food stamp fund to give to their bffs in the teachers union was all about job creation. Grab me a bucket. I think I’m gonna hurl.

Who do you prefer as First Lady?

Ann Romney vs Michelle Obama [:27]

Hilary Rosen’s attack on Ann Romney sparked an uproar that led to her apologizing and Obama and the White House distancing themselves from her remarks.

But White House visitor logs show that she has visited the White House at least 35 times and had several direct meetings with President Obama and with several of his senior advisers (Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, Jim Messina).

I believe Rosen’s attack expressed the Left’s genuine contempt for any human being who checked R when they registered to vote and that all their subsequent back-peddling is due exclusively to the fact that the attack hurt them politically.

We’ve seen this kind of thing over and over. IMHO, they’re saying what they really believe and only back-peddle when it explodes in their faces. Remember these gems?

Joe Biden’s reference to Obama as Clean & Articulate [4:11]

Barack Obama’s reference to bitter, gun and Bible clinging bigots [:25]

And they’re not all rethinking the decision to sneer at Stay At Home Moms.

Democrat activist says Rosen had every right to attack Romney  [1:51]

I don’t know who the blonde commentator on the FOX clip is, but I think she is absolutely dead on about the Left seeing people only as voting blocs. Michelle Malkin summarizes nicely:

What’s changed in 2012 is the Internet revenge of thousands of conservative female activists who have played a larger role than ever in controlling political narratives. These include tea party leaders such as Breitbart.com editor Dana Loesch, national grassroots groups such as Smart Girl Politics, the proliferation of conservative female bloggers and podcasters, and the critical mass of stay-at-home moms, work-at-home moms and young conservative women flocking to Twitter.

As we’ve documented at my new Twitter curation/aggregation site, Twitchy.com, GOP moms, grandmothers and daughters have besieged White House social media efforts to paint conservatives as anti-women. They’ve torn apart hypocritical White House rhetoric about equal pay from an administration that has failed to practice what it preaches.

And as Ann Romney is now experiencing on Twitter, the women of the right are fighting their way through a hostile cesspool of misogyny that has been SOP for the feminist left.

Rosen and her media defenders dismissed “faux outrage” about her attack. But the real moms of the GOP have launched their own Occupy movement in the social media space once dominated by Obama’s army. And they’re winning.
