Dear PBO, Stop Promising Victims You Won't Forget


If it isn't the latest mass shooting, there's those who who've lost their home to a hurricane or wildfires.
I don't recall any president in my lifetime consoling so many and he's not done yet.
The next shooting or hurricane is just around the corner.

Here's this story from ABC News about the Ft. Hood victims feeling betrayed by PBO.
As expected the vitriol follows in the comment section, I'm confused by the comments, aren't these the "we built it" and "pro-gun", "anti-government" crowd? Ft Hood victims at least have insurance, many other gun victims have no health insurance at all.

It's never enough when it comes to this president.

Fort Hood Hero Says President Obama 'Betrayed' Her, Other Victims

Three years after the White House arranged a hero's welcome at the State of the Union address for the Fort Hood police sergeant and her partner who stopped the deadly shooting there, Kimberly Munley says President Obama broke the promise he made to her that the victims would be well taken care of.

"Betrayed is a good word," former Sgt. Munley told ABC News in a tearful interview to be broadcast tonight on "World News with Diane Sawyer" and "Nightline."

"Not to the least little bit have the victims been taken care of," she said. "In fact they've been neglected."

There was no immediate comment from the White House about Munley's allegations.

Thirteen people were killed, including a pregnant soldier, and 32 others shot in the November 2009 rampage by the accused shooter, Major Nidal Hasan, who now awaits a military trial on charges of premeditated murder and attempted murder.

Tonight's broadcast report also includes dramatic new video, obtained by ABC News, taken in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, capturing the chaos and terror of the day. http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/fort-hood-hero-obama-betrayed-victims/story?id=18465024
