Military Mom Calls GOP Grinch That Stole Christmas On Fireworks


Recommended Posts

Fox Nation has been busy trying to blame Obama for the troops’ fireworks that were cut thanks to the sequester. They inaccurately headlined their story, “Obama Spends $100M on African Trip But Cancels Marines’ July 4th Fireworks.” Naturally, neither part of their headline is actually accurate nor is it proven nor is it even related to reality.

 

A more accurate title for the AP story would have been “Military Mom Calls Republicans the Grinch Who Stole Christmas”. The second part of the story (only at the link to MSN) quoted military mom Brandy Rhoad Stowe, whose husband is in the Marine Corps, saying the fireworks at Camp Lejeune always were spectacular, and she said that she and her kids, ages 3 and 9, will miss them this year:

Her husband is a master gunnery sergeant with seven combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.

Stowe says she understands the budgets cuts but still feels a little shortchanged.

“It’s just a bummer for the kids,” she said. “It’s like the Grinch stealing Christmas.”
Take away: The party that likes to rah-rah the troops during election years is like the Grinch stealing Christmas in action. People may not know who is behind the sequester, but Speaker Boehner has admitted that the President did not want the sequester and the President has been warning the public about the then impending sequester all year.
The sequester has been championed by Republicans and is the result of Republicans refusing to agree to any revenue raises, and now the House Republicans’ refusal to begin the budget reconciliation process with the Senate.

Americans should be asking themselves if Republicans are so proud of the sequester, if it really is the Holy Grail of budgets, why are they so ashamed of the results that they lie about them in public?

 

Why is Fox News lying to the Republican base (their audience) about who killed the Marine’s fireworks? Why not just say, hey y’all, these are those cuts you championed! WOO HOO!

 

If Republicans want to be known as the party of fiscal discipline (a far, far stretch from their current standing as the party of drunken frat boys charging on Daddy’s credit card and refusing to pay off the bills when it comes time to raise the debt ceiling), why aren’t they embracing these cuts publicly?

 

Luckily for Republicans, their base is easily led down the resentment path and thus easily distracted by shining balls of racial rage aimed at this President.

 

The rest of the nation watches on in ever-growing horror at the Republican party’s clown show, as they take aim at starving children and the elderly and lie about it in order to get elected.

Yea this is a pretty cheap ridiculous attempt at the blame game. Even for you, skews.

So maybe next time republicans will take fireworks off their sequester list, as the article clearly shows that is the cause low information reader.

 

Problem for Screws: The fireworks company that provides the fireworks offered them for free.

Their offer was declined.

 

This was nothing but politics.

Liberals trying to blame Republicans for taking away the Military's fireworks.

 

You poor, pathetic bastards.

I fail to see where S is wrong dip-chit, what is wrong is your lack of comprehension skills. Do you know what a cut back is dipchit?

 

The military says the show meant for more than 47-thousand Marines and Sailors was cancelled due to federal cutbacks.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Military veterans are upset after the annual Camp Lejeune fireworks show for military members and their families was cut.

What makes it even worse: A Pittsburgh area company offered to do the show for free, but the government said, thanks, but no thanks.

It was Obama's idea, and he refused to allow a bill to be passed that would have allowed flexibility in where the cuts are.

 

He wants them to be as painful and as public as possible.

 

Lie much?

And, of course, Cons lie by telling only part of the story. In this case, about a quarter of the truth.

Wow. So Lejuene didn't get their annual fireworks show??? Ha ha ha ... that pizzed off a lot of people to be sure. Everybody else did worldwide so II MEF is the bad guy on this one because volunteers from all communities could have made it happen very easily. East coast still sux big time.

 

Go Pendleton! WEST - SIIIIDDDDEEEE!
