Presidents Obama & Clinton Rebuked by Parents of Fallen Warrior

As a father of five, it is unimaginable what it would be like to lose a son or daughter in death. Billy and Karen Vaughn lost their son Aaron Carson Vaughn a little over a year ago in Afghanistan while he served our nation during Operation Enduring Freedom. Aaron enlisted in the Navy in 2002 and became a SEAL in 2004. Relatively few SEALs earn a place in the highly secretive counter-terrorism and Special Mission Unit DEVGRU (SEAL Team Six); Aaron earned a place in the squad in 2010.

We of the MRC team extend our most sincere condolences to Mr. and Mrs. Vaughn in their time of grief and pain.

This week, Karen Vaughn expressed her outrage at Presidents Obama and Clinton for their “audacity” to create a political ad to state how Mr. Obama would have been politically damaged had the Osama bin Laden raid gone south in some way.



Quoting Aaron’s mother Karen Vaughn (referring to Obama and Clinton):

“How out of touch can a human being be?

“He is so out of touch with his insanity!”

“Disgusting insensitivity to the families that have lost warriors on the battlefield!

Clinton: “The downside would have been horrible for him.” [Obama]

President Obama is not much more than a politician that will do or say anything to retain power as President of the United States of America. He will be fully revealed in the next 60+ days and as he is, voters will quickly realize that Mitt Romney will do everything in his power to honor those who serve our country and never with an eye to retaining power.

Two New Videos from the Romney Campaign and MittFitts Releases a New Cartoon

MittFitts releases a new cartoon that illustrates a major problem with the Rick Perry campaign:

Bringing up the topic of immigration in the last debate was not a good idea for Gov. Perry. I wonder where the liberals in California got all their bad ideas? Rick Perry was first to give in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. He approved taxpayer-funded state aid for illegal immigrants attending college. CareerPolitician.com welcomes Governor Perry to California with this new video.

Also, somehow we missed this short clip from Gov. Romney’s youtube channel simply replaying President Obama’s own words followed by a quick reminder to visit the ever-growing Obama Isn’t Working website.


President Obama doesn’t even realize his own words are defining his failures as a leader.

Troops in Afghanistan: What Does Rick Perry REALLY Believe?


In comments published from an interview this afternoon, a Rick Perry campaign adviser said Perry does NOT support a withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan:

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry kicked up a firestorm inside the GOP when he seemed to endorse Jon Huntsman’s call for a speedy withdrawal from Afghanistan during this week’s debate, but his real views on Afghanistan don’t match those of Huntsman, the GOP hawks, or President Barack Obama, a senior Perry foreign policy advisor told The Cable. ‘In the dynamic of a debate when you follow someone, you kind of play off of them, and what Gov. Perry wanted to do was to express a similar sentiment to Gov. Huntsman that he very much wants to bring the troops home, we all do, but he wasn’t saying “I want to bring the troops home now,”’ the advisor said.” (Josh Rogin, “Rick Perry Clarifies: No Speedy Withdrawal From Afghanistan,” Foreign Policy’s The Cable Blog, 9/15/11)

Perry adviser:

“A precipitous withdrawal is not what he’s recommending.” (Josh Rogin, “Rick Perry Clarifies: No Speedy Withdrawal From Afghanistan,” Foreign Policy’s The Cable Blog, 9/15/11)

However, Governor Perry – on two separate occasions within the last week said he wanted to withdraw our forces from Afghanistan:

On Monday, Perry said that the best way to “deliver our aid” to Afghanistan is to “bring our young men and women home.”

PERRY: “I think the entire conversation about, how do we deliver our aid to those countries, and is it best spent with 100,000 military who have the target on their back in Afghanistan, I don’t think so at this particular point in time. I think the best way for us to be able to impact that country is to make a transition to where that country’s military is going to be taking care of their people, bring our young men and women home, and continue to help them build the infrastructure that we need, whether it’s schools for young women like yourself or otherwise.” (Gov. Rick Perry, CNN Tea Party Debate, Tampa, FL, 9/12/11)

Perry, from remarks published earlier today:

“I think we need to try to move our men and women home as soon as we can – not just in Afghanistan, but in Iraq as well.” (“Rick Perry Exclusive,” Time’s Swampland Blog, 9/15/11)



What does Rick Perry really believe? Will he change his mind tomorrow?

Social Security: Is Rick Perry FED UP! Or Not?




Mitt Romney (GOP Candidates Debate, Tampa, FL, 9/12/11):

“I put in my book a series of proposals on how to get [Social Security] on sound financial footing so that our kids could count on it, not just our current seniors. But the real question is: Does Governor Perry continue to believe that Social Security should not be a federal program, that it’s unconstitutional and it should be returned to the states? Or is he going to retreat from that view?”

Is Perry’s position on Social Security what he wrote in Fed Up!?

Perry, In Fed Up!: “Social Security is something that we’ve been forced to accept for more than 70 years now … at the expense of respect for the Constitution and limited government.” (Rick Perry, Fed Up!, 2010, p. 50)

Perry: “By any measure, Social Security is a failure.” (Rick Perry, Fed Up, 2010, p. 62)

Is it what he said on his book tour last year?

Perry: “Get it back to the states. Why is the federal government even in the pension program…? Let the states do it.”

PERRY: “When you look at Social Security, it’s broke. … Get it back to the states. Why is the federal government even in the pension program or the health care delivery program? Let the states do it. … That, I will suggest to you, is one of the ways this federal government can get out of our business, save a lot of money and get back to that Constitutional way of doing business in those enumerated powers that they’re supposed to have.” (MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” 11/5/10)

Perry: “Let the states … run the pensions.”

PERRY: “There’s a number of things in that book that will strike Americans as horrifying. And we must, as a people, get put back in the box. Get this government back to the limited form that our founding fathers sought. Let the states, whether it is how to run Medicaid, how to run the pensions.” (FOX’s “On The Record With Greta Van Susteren,” 11/8/10)

Perry called Social Security a program “THAT WE DON’T NEED.”

PERRY: “I think every program needs to stand the sunshine of righteous scrutiny. Whether it’s Social Security, whether it’s Medicaid, whether it’s Medicare. You’ve got $115 trillion worth of unfunded liability in those three. … And I think we should have a legitimate, honest, national discussion about Washington’s continuing to spend money we don’t have on programs that we don’t need.” (Andrew Romano, “Rick Perry On The Record,” The Daily Beast, 8/12/11)

Now, he’s changed his mind? Here’s his latest opinion:

On September 12, 2011, Perry wrote that “America’s goal must be to fix Social Security” so Americans “really can count on [it] for the long haul.”

“America’s goal must be to fix Social Security by making it more financially sound and sustainable for the long term. … Americans must come together and agree to address the problems so today’s beneficiaries and tomorrow’s retirees really can count on Social Security for the long haul.”(Rick Perry, Op-Ed, “I Am Going To Be Honest With The American People,” USA Today, 9/12/11)

Now, that’s a switch…

Career Politician Perry PRAISED Hillarycare - Critical of Romney Health Ins. in MA


FACT CHECK: PERRY AND HILLARYCARE

During An Interview On Sean Hannity’s Radio Show On August 30, Perry Said He Signed A Letter Praising Hillary Clinton’s Health Reform Efforts Before The Full Scope Of Her Plan Was Known:

In A Letter To Hillary Clinton In 1993, Then-Texas Agriculture Commissioner Perry Praised The Then-First Lady’s Efforts On Health Care Reform. “Texas Governor Rick Perry has been among the most vocal critics of President Obama’s health care reform initiative, and of Mitt Romney’s preceding health care program in Massachusetts. But in 1993, while serving as Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Perry praised the efforts of then-first lady Hillary Clinton to reform health care, a precursor to Obama’s health care reform efforts.” (Alexis Levinson And Caroline May, “Rick Perry’s Camp Defends 1993 HillaryCare Praise,” The Daily Caller, 8/30/11)

Perry To Hillary: “I Think Your Efforts In Trying To Reform The Nation’s Health Care System Are Most Commendable.” (Alexis Levinson And Caroline May, “Rick Perry’s Camp Defends 1993 HillaryCare Praise,” The Daily Caller, 8/30/11)

Perry’s Letter Was Dated April 6, 2022:

During An Interview On Sean Hannity’s Radio Show On August 30, Perry Said That He Had No Idea Of The “Monstrosity” That The Clinton Health Care Reform Bill Would Become At The Time He The Letter. “And, [Perry] said, at the time he wrote the letter, he did not know what a ‘monstrosity’ Clinton’s final proposal would be. ‘I had no idea that was going to be the end product. What I thought they were truly going to work towards was trying to reform health care, and we had no idea.‘ he said.” (Caroline May, “Perry Hits Back: Obama’s Policies Are ‘Dumb’,” The Daily Caller, 8/30/11)

However, An Article That Was Published Before He Signed The Letter Said Aspects Such As An Employer Mandate Were Already Known Parts Of The Clinton Health Plan:

Los Angeles Times On April 5, 1993: The Clinton Plan Would Mandate That Employers Provide Their Workers With Health Insurance. “Barring unexpected hitches, the Clinton plan also will: (…) Phase in a requirement for employers to provide workers with health insurance, with government subsidies to help the smaller businesses.” (Edwin Chen, “Shape Of New Health Plan Is Emerging,” Los Angeles Times, 4/5/93)

Los Angeles Times On April 5, 1993: The Key To The Hillary Clinton Health Care Plan Would Have Been The Creation Of Regional Health Insurance Cooperatives. “The key to making this concept work nationally is the creation of government-certified regional health insurance purchasing cooperatives. Most Americans would be grouped into the large cooperatives, with consumers able to choose from a variety of insurance networks — ranging from HMOs to traditional fee-for-service plans that allow the patient to choose any physician.” (Edwin Chen, “Shape Of New Health Plan Is Emerging,” Los Angeles Times, 4/5/93)

Los Angeles Times On April 5, 1993: While The States Were To Be Given Latitude, Some Smaller And More Rural States Would Be Allowed To Set Up Single-Payer Systems. “Within the federal system, states will be given considerable latitude. In small states and rural states, where size rules out the existence of more than one provider network, states may be empowered to set statewide rates in an arrangement known as a single-payer system.” (Edwin Chen, “Shape Of New Health Plan Is Emerging,” Los Angeles Times, 4/5/93)

Los Angeles Times On April 5, 1993: Clinton’s Plan Would Guarantee A Basic Set Of Benefits For Everyone Including Mental Health Care And Prescription Drug Coverage. “Barring unexpected hitches, the Clinton plan also will: Guarantee that a uniform package of basic benefits will be available to everyone, although not all the uninsured will get this coverage right away. Among the basic benefits would be hospital and doctor services, including mental health care, and some prescription drug coverage.” (Edwin Chen, “Shape Of New Health Plan Is Emerging,” Los Angeles Times, 4/5/93)

Los Angeles Times On April 5, 1993: The Clinton Plan Would Bar Insurers From Refusing To Cover People With Pre-Existing Conditions. “Barring unexpected hitches, the Clinton plan also will: (…) Create a standardized insurance form and bar insurers from refusing to cover people with pre-existing medical conditions, in order to enable people to change jobs — and insurers — without fear of losing coverage.” (Edwin Chen, “Shape Of New Health Plan Is Emerging,” Los Angeles Times, 4/5/93)
