President Places Troops and Kids In Harm's Way and the Liberal Media Writes About A F***ing Newspaper Ad

First President Bush and his rubber stamp Congress tried to f*ck with Veteran's benefits, unwilling to fund the amount of money to the soldiers' that had served in harm's way adequate "after being in harm's way" life and treatment.  It wasn't until the GAO embarrassed the "it'll raise taxes" Bush apologists and their painfully quiet noise machine, documenting that Republican leaders thought money in the top percenters' pocket was more desirable than in a fund that might shorten the lines our wounded heroes must wait in to get critical care.
Next, Republicans vote against giving the troops in harm's way respectable time with their families, away from harm's way, and the media promotes it as a defeat for the Democrats, when it was actually a defeat against our troops in harm's way.
Now, the president has vowed to veto an expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program accusing Democrats of putting health coverage for poor children at risk.
Problem is, the president's "stay the course" funding, which Republicans will say adds $1 billion a year to the plan, will not even meet the present level of coverage in the plan. 
It's almost like refusing to fully complete one's own "not in harm's way" military service to his country.
But what does the media deem most important?
A f*cking newspaper ad!  A newspaper ad that takes the President and his General Repeater In Charge to task and turns it into a condemnation of the entire military.   And they needed a f*cking vote to say so.  A vote, mind you, that Republicans didn't feel necessary to bring up when John Kerry was swiftboated ad infinitum.
And the f*cking "liberal" media follows in lockstep, making the ad more important than any real concern for the real troops.  And now, concern for the kids.
For crissakes, folks.  Howzabout dealing with what  this president and his partisans are actually doing to this country instead of what their talking points tell you to write?
The troops?  The kids?  A newspaper ad?
Obviously the President, the Congress and the liberal media have made their choice of what is most important to them.
