Once a President Always A President

He called her into his office and as he told her what had happened, she got a text message from her husband saying, "I am okay." Her cell phone rang right after she read the message. It was an ER nurse, Im the one who just sent you a text, ...
not your husband.
I thought it would be comforting but I was mistaken in doing so. I am sorry to tell you this, but your husband has been shot 4 times and he is in surgery."

The soldier's wife left Southern Clinic in Dothan , AL and drove all night to Ft. Hood. When she arrived, she found out her husband was out of surgery and would be OK. She rushed to his room and found that he already had two visitors there to comfort him.

He was just waking up and found his wife and the visitors by his side. The nurse took this picture:

What? No news crews and cameras? This is how people with class respond and pay respect to those in uniform.
I sent my cousin in Fayetteville , N.C. (Retired from Special Forces) that picture of Geo. W. visiting the wounded at Ft. Hood . I got this reply:

What is even better is the fact George W. Bush heard about Fort Hood, got in his car without any escort, apparently they did not have time to react, and drove to Fort Hood. He was stopped at the gate and the guard could not believe who he had just stopped. Bush only asks for directions to the hospital then drove on. The gate guard called that "The President is on Fort Hood and driving to the hospital."

The base went bananas looking for Obama. When they found it was Bush, they immediately offered escort. Bush simply told them it was o.k. and to let him visit the wounded and the dependents of the dead.

He stayed at Fort Hood for over six hours, and was finally asked to leave by a message from the White House.

Obama flew in days later and held a "photo opportunity" session in a gym, and did not even go to the hospital.

All this I picked up from two soldiers here who happened to be at Fort Hood when it happened.
This Bush/Obama/Ft. Hood story is something that should be sent to every voter in the US . Those who wanted "change". You certainly got it.

Someone, PLEASE, show me anything that will tell us that Obama has ANY respect for the country he leads! I'm looking for just a little sign of respect.

Personal Responsibility
Whose Fault is it really?
When did it become acceptable or fashionable to try and blame the things going on in your life on someone or something else? Who started it? How does it keep going? When is it going to stop?
When you were going up as a small child and you did something wrong and you were being questioned by your mother and father as to the facts of the situation, you did your very best to convince them that you had nothing to do with what ever happened. They didn’t let you get away with “passing the buck” even if you were in the right doing it in the first place. They wanted you to learn Personal Responsibility.
Today in the same situation some mothers and fathers would quite probably agree with you (as the child) that it wasn’t your fault but the actions of others that caused the situation in the first place, causing you to make a choice that you should have been force to make. And that you were not only, not responsible but the victim of the situation. And it could very well escalate to a legal situation and the other person either not being able to defend themselves or not wanting to escalate the matter further  will accept responsibility just to put it behind them and get on with their lives. The Lesson? “It wasn’t your fault it was them not you”.
Even in Sports or Athletics parents no longer teach that hard work, determination and practice are the keys to success an every own and then the other team does win. Now some little leagues don’t even keep score and everyone gets a trophy.  Then as an adult you are told by some of those in elected office “It takes a Village” or to relinquish your rights and responsibility and let the school teach the morality and life lessons. So the national organizations like the NEA and the Dept. of Education will gladly take over and “teach” your children. And your children under penalty of failing grades and/or expulsion will have to endure the doctrine of what those people think your children should know. And If you object “why there is something wrong with you” and you “must be punished and forced into compliance”.
So again “when is it going to stop”? You personally, and as a parent must realize that each on of your actions has consequences and the only person responsible is “you”. You and you alone have the God given right and ability of “free will” that enable to you make choices, “Your Own Choices” and sometimes they may not be the choices that you will like but they will be “your” choices and no one can make them for you. Once you make your choice you alone are responsible.
You have to be responsible for your own choices.

The Immigration Trap
Democrats have laid the trap and Republicans are taking the bait.
            Democrats want to offer a bribe of amnesty to all undocumented workers who are able to make their way into this country. They also want, and expect, Republicans to fall for the trap, start debating, and start playing the “what if” game. This will allow Democrats, along with their accomplices in the Main Stream Media, to paint Republicans as racist, unfeeling, soulless people who don’t care about anyone. Unfortunately, some Republicans are doing everything they can to disprove those statements, and are playing right into the Democrat’s hands. Whether they call themselves the “Gang of Eight” or the “Three Amigos”, it’s all a trap to enable Democrats to gain favor with the illegal, undocumented people flooding our boarders.
            What, in my opinion should every true conservative Republican do? Every time they are asked about their thoughts on immigration, they should simply say, “Secure the boarders”, that’s all. They should not debate, discuss, or vote on anything but securing the boarders first.  Anything else, other than securing the boarders, will allow Democrats to draw them back into the discussion of the “what if” game.  Once the boarders are secure, then the debate about what to do with the people in the country illegally can begin. Democrats will not want to do this at all, which is the first signal that it is the right thing to do.
            Not securing the boarders first, and allowing as many people as possible to further disregard this countries laws and sovereignty, only makes the already dangerous situation worse. It continues to restrain our public safety officers and agents, those same people who bravely put their lives on the line defending the people of the United States of America.
