The morning after President Obama's State of the Union speech, NBC News senior political director Mark Murray composed a tweet that compared Obama's "story" to that of Army Ranger Cory Remsburg, the wounded war hero honored by the president last night.

Quote

    Obama's ending on Remsburg wasn't just a story about America -- it also was a story about Obama. Nothing has ever come easy
    — Mark Murray (@mmurraypolitics) January 29, 2014



Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau couldn’t agree more.

Quote

    @mmurraypolitics my thought exactly the first time I read it
    — Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) January 29, 2014


SFC Remsburg  served 10 deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan and suffered a head wound that included shrapnel in his brain. After three months in a coma, dozens of surgeries, years of rehabilitation, and being blinded in one eye, Remsburg is now able to walk and speak.

During his speech, the President compared Remsburg's struggle to that of America, not his own.

Murray later defended his tweet to the Washington Examiner's Philip Klein: "Obama also was talking about perseverance at large for country - and that applies to him."

Yes, but using that logic it also applies to 330-plus million Americans living today and the billions that came before. It was Murray and Murray alone who chose to single Obama out.

Obummer got a free ride from day one. His worst days were probably when he didn't have his coke.

It is disgusting in the extreme that politicians use severely wounded warriors as political props like Moose-shell did last night.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

After Maddow and the MSNBC gang THINKS they owned someone  http://crooksandliars.com/2014/01/rep-tim-huelskamp-attacks-rachel-maddow I wish someone would send them this story.

It is like the liberal media is under a spell and has a different set of glasses on.

It's repulsive. Obama has completely bungled the conflicts in the Middle East. His death toll far outnumbers that of GWB, and the blood of soldiers like Remsberg is on his hands. To use a soldier as a prop - just as the Mooch does with her phony support for military families -  is beyond cynical.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
