It’s One Thing To Say That You Support The Troops, It’s Another Thing To Support The Troops

Many politicians will say one thing, but in reality, do another thing.

You know who is no different. He says that he supports the troops, but as usual, he only acts upon it when his reputation is in tatters. This week, his reputation is in tatters due to the government shutdown that he as usual, is blaming others for.

Since the early 2000’s, when George W. Bush was in the White House, it has been a Presidential tradition to visit the troops around the December holidays. You know who made a “surprise” visit to the troops in Iraq in order to save face from the government shutdown that many are blaming him for.

Americans are used to politicians saying one thing and doing another thing. But we are not used to (and should never be used to) a politician, especially one who was elected to the highest office in the land, who says one thing, completely changes his statement within a short period of time and then blames others when things don’t go his way.

Saying that we need to support the troops is an obvious statement. Backing that statement up with action is another thing entirely. Not that he would understand that concept.
