    The Obama administration, under the leadership of Gen. Eric Shinseki, has done more - a thousand times more - for veterans like myself than any administration, Dem or GOP, in my memory.  There has never been a more veteran-friendly president.  Time and time again both the Obamas and the Bidens have shown how they honor the sacrifices of veterans, with action, not words.

    Old memes die hard.

    •  I think it has to do with how many vets (0+ / 0-)

      are from the South and Midwest.  Also, many are evangelicals or just conservatives from the get go...

      Or maybe the theme of 'Dems are weak on defense, so they must be weak on veterans' issues" sticks, however erroneous...

      Chickenhawk chickenshit after they drop it all over the place.
