If you, like Hilary Clinton, think that with 4 dead Americans “what difference, at this point, does it make?” you will not understand this poem – “A Bump in the Road.”
Remember that calloused statement made by President Obama? Recall Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama referring to the Benghazi incident as “a bump in the road.” A former Navy SEAL was interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives.
At the end of the interview, he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi. He thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news since other news organizations are not. He said the two SEALS who died rescuing the Benghazi consulate staff deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair. He then read this poem written by an anonymous Marine.
The Battling Boys of Benghazi
We’re the Battling Boys of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
defending the country we loved so well.
It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
led them to safety and stood at the gate.
Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
but we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
so we fought and we fought and we fought till we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam
but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn
just two dead SEALs who carried the load
no thanks to us – we were just “bumps in the road.”
Obama and Democrats continue to stonewall Congress on information about this issue and many others in which Democrats have violated the Constitution and the rights of Americans. These two former SEALS, whom Democrats callously refer to as “mercenaries,” defended American soil being attacked by Jihadis on 9-11-12 and saved forty American lives. They died serving their country and deserve to be honored rather than defamed and demeaned by the Democrats and President Obama, their Commander-in-Chief.
Some Republican lawmakers have recommended the men for the Medal of Honor, but Democrats contend this award is for active duty service members. Like the victims of the Fort Hood shooting that has been termed “workplace violence” by Obama, they and their families are not entitled to any benefits. The federal government denies them benefits because they were not serving and involved in an actual “terrorist attack” but from what President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other Democrats refer to as a riot over a movie insulting to Islam.
