    "She called on private companies to step up hiring to keep up with the demand that will occur as nearly 1 million members of the military become civilians in the next few years."

    I applaud the concern for our vets, but it seems as though the Obama's don't have any idea why companies hire people. Private industry hires people as existing businesses expand or new businesses start. That is dependant on the economy growing, not the need of people for employment. Perhaps if the President would put as much effort and time into the economy as he does into his golf game and vacations the economy would improve.

    Then again, since he views private business as greedy sheep to be sheered for his real priorities, perhaps not.

    We will cut the deficit in half, taxes will not rise a single dime in ant form, everyone will have affordable health insurance, and unemployment will go down.

    After the Obama's taking, hundreds of millions in benefits, I would be foolish to believe the words coming out of their mouths.

    I don't know how it can exceed the real goal. We have men and women that we have trained to kill people and who have killed people for a longer time than some in World War II and then some including Korea's conflict. These men and women have done this job for 2-5 rotations in the Iraq and Afghanistan areas and separation from families with more time in training and preparation for training and departing.

    We have put a very large burden on these dedicated military enlisted and officers and families. For once, the President's wife did say that employers should do more for these people that have given much for our country, as required.

    They have given much and the mental and moral stress has been long which also impacts on their ability to get a job in many cases.
