Troops lose sports coverage, Obama keeps personal retreat

Obama‘s years of media impunity have sharpened his hubris to a fine point.

He is keeping his personal Navy-run retreat, Camp David, open during the government shut down, but he is cutting sports coverage to hundreds of thousands of troops around the globe, according to the Washington Examiner.

“A phone call to the retreat found it open,” which confirmed a TMZ report, the Examiner reported.

Personally, I cannot think of anything more vile from a president who continues to out-do himself where “vile” is concerned.

Our troops fighting for our freedom overseas had nothing to do with the Obamacare mess. They do however, take up arms and risk their lives while Obama rests his feet atop the presidential desk, as he’s so prone to do.

Why wouldn’t our president make what he likes to call, “my military,” exempt from his spiteful backlash over the House lock?

Our soldiers embrace things from home, especially football and baseball broadcasts on the American Forces Network – AFN. They will reportedly get little, if any, service according to a notice on the AFN page.

The Major League Baseball playoffs are under way, making it that much worse for our heroes.

I pray that baseball players and football players alike speak out against Obama on this particular issue.
