Words fail me. He uses them for campaign props and takes credit for their achievements. But he’s too damn lazy to even sign bereavement letters to their families with his own damn pen? This makes me want to vomit. Literally. I can taste the bile.

During his time in office, President Bush sent personal letters to the families of every one of the more than 4,000 troops who died in Iraq and Afghanistan. He met privately with more than 500 families of troops killed in action and spent personal time with more than 950 wounded veterans.

After the Fort Hood shooting, while the sitting Commander-in-Chief and his wife kicked back at Camp David, George and Laura went to Ford Hood and met privately with the wounded and bereaved. There were no reporters. No look at us moments. The only reason we know is because some of the folks they met with chose to share their photos on the internet.

    I am so glad you highlighted this and added your excellent commentary.
    It is just appalling that he is treating our troops with such disdain. Say what one will about the failings of GW, but the man was visibly shaken by the deaths of our troops, and this would have been something he would have considered a priority.
    It was bad enough that this govt. thought it was okay to transport these elite troops in a cargo plane, making them sitting ducks. But to ignore their deaths the way the liar in chief did, should be headline news.
    The things he gets away with, day after day, just leaves me is such a state of disbelief.
    How the hell did this man ever become president, and how can any citizen with half a brain still think he deserves more time????

    Did other presidents do this?
