If you remember it was B.O. that went to see the coffins coming back before he made the decision to surge & he left it up to family to show the caskets or not. Every time there are innocent victims its all over the news, its the same reason a lot of people watch nascar, they want to see the wrecks, I think he was just fed up with the priorities the news chooses to air. In any event he isn`t going to seek re-election.
Im referring to the fact that the reason Patrick's and Kucinich's vote on their bill was not being covered heavily is hat the MSM does not want to show democratic disunity.
They don't want it to look like there are Democrats who disagree with Obama.
i.e presenting a unified front on the issue.
