    WASHINGTON — Three times, mainly by chance and in very different circumstances, Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg has met President Obama.

    They were introduced near Omaha Beach in France in 2009, when Sergeant Remsburg was part of a select Army Ranger group chosen to re-enact a parachute drop for celebrations of the 65th anniversary of the D-Day landings in World War II. The second meeting came less than a year later at a military hospital outside Washington, where Mr. Obama was stunned to see among the wounded troops from Afghanistan a familiar young man — now brain-damaged, a track of fresh stitches across his skull, and partly paralyzed.

    The third time was two weeks ago in a private visit in Phoenix, where Sergeant Remsburg did something that neither Mr. Obama nor military doctors would once have predicted: he stood up and saluted his commander in chief.

    There was more. Grasping his walker, “Cory took a step, then another, and then another,” Mr. Obama said later, “all the way across the room.”

    Reporters with Mr. Obama were not informed about his rendezvous in an empty classroom, but the following Saturday, the president told the disabled veterans all about it.

    “I suspect it won’t surprise you to know that for Cory, the years since he was injured have been very hard,” Mr. Obama said, describing dozens of surgeries on the soldier’s brain, skull, eyes and lungs. He spoke of skin grafts and “grueling” daily hours of physical, occupational and speech therapy.

    Sergeant Remsburg, he said, “had to learn the simple things all over again — how to speak, how to write his name, how to throw a ball.”

    But he added, “The young man I had seen in that hospital bed, unable to speak, barely able to move, this time he was in a chair sitting up — alert, smiling, talking. And then, he wanted to show me something.”

    Sergeant Remsburg reached for his walker and, with help from his father and stepmother, stood up. “And he looked at me,” Mr. Obama said, “and he gave me a sharp salute. He said, ‘Rangers, lead the way!’” — the force’s motto since D-Day. (He also said “Sir,” his father said.) Then the Ranger crossed the room with his walker.

    The conventioneers erupted, even as Mr. Obama went on.

    “The war in Afghanistan may be ending,” he added, “but for Cory and our disabled vets, the work has only just begun. Cory is 30 years old. His recovery — like so many of yours — will last a lifetime. But he won’t give up, because you haven’t given up. And when it comes to our work, to making sure that our nation is fulfilling its promises to the men and women who served and sacrificed, America cannot give up either.”

    …..And he talks of coming to Washington: Mr. Obama invited him to meet for a fourth time, this time at the White House

      This is the most heartwarming story. We have the most wonderful, kind hearted president in our generation. It’s too bad the lefties decided to stay home and fucked things up for all of us. I feel sorry for all the work this president could have done for the soldiers, the elderly and our kids just because he did not do what the lefties who could never be elected dog catcher wanted him to do.

      Yes They Can…I also turn off Chrissy Haze, Rachel Madd Cow, and Tweety the fair weather bird who loves/hates the president unless he can make money off of him.

    More truth ….

    No matter how hard the #NEWSTAINERS, #KOCHSTERS and all their #Teabagger #Emoprog #Dudebro etc clowns try, this President is CONNECTED with a very large MAJORITY of Americans and that is only going to increase in the days, weeks, months ahead because the more all those fools mess with Americans the more Americans realize President Obama & @OFA are On Their Side.

    Dudette posted this at the end of the last thread.

    Christie is such an MSM and big donor darling that they *assume* he will win.

    Well, it’s up the voters now, not the fatcats and journalists in their pockets.

    Aside from the obvious traitor angle, and the vile nature of Greenwald himself, what drives me nuts about the non bigoted emoprogs (I’m sure they exist) is that the GOP alternative is just not a viable one in this century.

    I posted this on the last thread, but as a reminder, this is the alternative to casting a Dem vote:
