All they did was mock the S. Palin and Ted Cruz, nothing was said about the WWII Vets who were there and thier service. The younger Vets took the Iron Fences and threw them in front of the White House ( pround of them and they shold ger a MEDAL) . Shame on this President and the liberals for thier disrespect of the Vet's and I'm mad as HELL. I'm a VET and damd proud of it. PS Anyone got a good name for the Medal.
Shame on the White House and this Pres is right. He loves to spit at America and especially those that made this country so great, namely the vets & armed forces. I do not think, or cares really, that closing the mall to vets but allowing illegals to protest has really #$%$ off people. Whoever voted for and even still supports this Pres should be utterly ashamed of themselves at the least.
They were mocked because they used the situation to stage a political rally and show staged outrage.
The issue first came to light on October first and was national news. On the first day of the shutdown WWll vets had come from Mississippi and Iowa to find the monument closed. A few Republicans and Dems from the house and senate were on sight and neither group was happy with the situation. Tom Harkin D Iowa was on the phone trying to get the dept of interior, Steve Palazzo R Mississippi was actually one of the people who picked up some of the barriers and moved them aside so that people could enter the monument.
The story on that day was about Vets who did not realize that the monument would be closed being allowed into the sight.
Cut to two weeks later everyone knows that the monuments (including the Vietnam war one) are closed and a group carrying protest signs with two tea party representatives show up to have a rally. The group makes a big show of picking up the barriers and throwing them in a pile against a fence ( as opposed to just moving them to the side)while the two politicians make prepared partisan statements for the media.
So tweedle dumb and tweedle dumber decide to hold a political rally disguised as a protest about something that had already been pointed out in the national media 2 weeks earlier and you are shocked that the story is about the them?
