Do my eyes and ears deceive me? Sarah Palin can’t be blaming President Barack Obama for her being a lousy parent? That wouldn’t be the most conservative thing to do would it?
Because only liberal, left wing Democrats and Independents blame others for their problems and don’t take responsibility for their actions and the consequences that come with them.
Let me catch you up.
Apparently, Palin’s son Track was arrested after being involved in a domestic altercation with his girlfriend. She said that it’s because of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and that he hasn’t received the help that he needs from Veteran Affairs due to polices of the Obama Administration.
Sarah tried it ya’ll.
She pulled the wrong card too because American veterans were having none of that foolishness.
Matthew Miller, chief policy officer for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, argued on CNN that Palin’s comments were “politicizing” what veterans go through.
“She missed an opportunity to use her platform, to use her fame, to draw attention to post-traumatic stress,” he said.
He went on to say Palin’s and Trump’s criticism of the Obama administration is wrong and that the spending on the Veterans Affairs department has been high since his presidency.
“They may be entitled to their own opinion, but they’re not entitled to their own facts,” he said.
While our veteran’s suffer with a lot when coming back from overseas and the VA department could operate more than a little better, using a serious condition to promote someone’s presidency is a bad idea and in bad taste. Even if it is your son that you’re using to do it.
Furthermore, I question why you didn’t try to get your son help? If you know that he has all these issues, why wouldn’t you do everything you could to make sure he couldn’t harm himself or others? Especially himself if you didn’t care about others.
PTSD is not something to be taken lightly. Men and women battle with it and the impact it has on their friends, families and work every day. It doesn’t need to trivialized and downgraded to a speaking point at a fundraiser or rally promoting your endorsement of a Republican Presidential Candidate. I’m sure Track has enough problems without you announcing them all around the country.
His name is Track after all.
I’m Just Saying.
