Veterans Day Flashback: Barack Obama Praises "Corpsemen," Sees Fallen Soldiers in Audience


RUSH: This is Veterans Day. I want to wish everybody in the United States Military the best and express on behalf of all of us the most sincere thanks that we can muster for your service, your volunteerism, everything that you've done, everything that you do. People in the United States military are a select, very small, unique bunch of people. They do things that 99% of the country wouldn't do -- in fact, more than 99% -- and they do it better than anybody else in the world does it. They are besmirched politically, sometimes they are a football that gets kicked around, but never here on this program. This is Veterans Day.

Also this week was the Marine Corps 236th birthday, and we just want everybody wears the uniform of the United States military (or has or is planning to) to know: You are loved, you are respected; you are revered, appreciated, thought of constantly, prayed for, and held in the highest regard and respect -- and I can say that that probably reflects the vast, vast majority of people in this country. Certainly not everybody, but the numbers who do not are so small. I'll tell you: The true 1%-ers are the men and women of the United States military. The true 1%-ers.

Speaking of it, here's Barack Obama, February 4th, last year at the National Prayer Breakfast, speaking about this.

OBAMA: Navy Corpsemen (sic) Christian Bashard ...

OBAMA: Corpseman Bashard ...

OBAMA: Corpseman. Bashard.

RUSH: "Corpseman." That's the President of the United States. We have two. Yeah, play number two.

OBAMA: On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in -- in the audience here today --

RUSH: Yeah?

OBAMA: -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

RUSH: He "sees" many of the fallen heroes in the audience today. He has no clue what they wrote. He's just reading it.
