RUSH: This is just four days ago, "Barack Hussein Obama! Mmm! Mmm! Mmm!" refused, in these budget negotiations, a rider that would pay military personnel in the war for the rest of the year. He refused it. It was a "distraction." He wouldn't go along for it. Four days later, at the White House, at an event to launch First Lady Moochelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden's Joining Forces initiative "to support America's military families," four days -- four days after Obama himself refused to go along with a rider that would pay them while they were in combat -- here's what Obama said today.
OBAMA: As part of a landmark presidential study directive, for the first time ever the well-being of our military families is now a national priority. Not just a Defense Department priority, not just a VA priority. It is a federal government priority. Today my administration's working to implement nearly 50 specific commitments to improve the lives of military families, everything from protecting families from financial scams, to improving education for military kids and spouses, to stepping up our fight to end homelessness among veterans.
RUSH: But he didn't say he was going to start paying them.
