(ClashDaily) – When Barack Obama returned to the podium to say one more thing at his press conference on Tuesday, it could have been about anything. Of course, a reporter had asked him about Jason Collins, but the president could have said any number of things.

He could have said,

Jason Collins? He’s a basketball player. Let me tell you about real American heroes. Let me tell you about six men who gave their lives in the service of their nation over the last week. Let me tell you about Captain Aaron Blanchard, a 32-year old Apache pilot, and First Lieutenant Robert Hess, a 26-year old Blackhawk pilot, who died of wounds received from indirect enemy fire on April 23rd. Let me tell you about the brave crew of Independence08, a MC-12 surveillance and reconnaissance turboprop that crashed in Afghanistan on April 27th. Onboard were 28-year old Captain Brandon Cyr, 30-year old Captain Reid Nishizuka, 24-year old Staff Sergeant Richard Dickson and 30-year old Staff Sergeant Daniel Fannin, and they leave behind families and friends and squadron mates who grieve their passing. I have personally called each of their parents and spouses to convey a grateful nation’s condolences and let them know that I will be here if they need anything. I am proud of these young men.

  1. The usurper was more angry about losing a gun control vote in the Senate than over a terrorist bombing in Boston. He’s a liar a cheat and a thief. He stands against everything real Heros have ever stood for. His minions cheated (convictions prove it) to even get him on the ballot in 2008. He shouldn’t even be in the Oval Office to start with. He’s a fraud.

    To be honest, I like it better when he doesn’t speak about true Heros. Here’s why. He doesn’t believe anything that he says anyway cuz he knows he’s a pathological liar and I’d rather him not include Heros in his endless pack of lies. I’d rather their service and sacrifice not pass his lying lips. Him speaking of them only tarnishes their memory. The farther he stays from them, the better. As demonstrated by this article – we the people know the truth despites his lies anyway. That’s a good thing.
