You know, I thought I blogged this last night.
Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, US Navy, SEAL Team Leader, was awarded (posthumously) the Congressional Medal of Honor yesterday. Under enemy fire, Lt. Murphy, already wounded, endangered himself to call in support by putting himself in the open so he could get a good signal. While requesting support he took and returned fire, eventually receiving the wound that killed him. From reports, at the end of his call he said, "Thank you," when he was told help was on the way.
The President then took this opportunity to demand Congress approve a $42 Billion supplimental to the just started new fiscal year to fund the war in Iraq.
And the only reason I put these two together is because the President, the person who makes the award presentation, put them together. Some people have timing, some have tact, others have propriety. Our President has none of these qualities.
