First Lady Announces Pledge to Hire 100K Veterans and Military Spouses by 2014

First lady Michelle Obama announced today that U.S. business has pledged to hire 100,000 veterans and military spouses by 2014, and she made a personal vow not to rest until all of the country’s 859,000 unemployed veterans have gainful employment. “Now I have to say I am excited to be here because this is a big day. This is unprecedented,” Obama said in a keynote address to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today. “America has your back. Today, America’s businesses have stepped forward with pledges to hire 100,000 veterans and military spouses by 2014. That’s right, 100,000.

My only response to her would be. Why 2014? Why not now? Don't you know that your not going to be on the scene in 2014!!!


  1. Nothing is beyond political with the Obamas. Something like pledging to close Gitmo. Whatever gets you applause.

  2. 100,000 is peanuts. America hired over 100,000 just for the holiday season. Personally, I believe there will be millions hired by 2014. If they want jobs.
    The problem here of course are all the oblabber supporters that think this is somehow significant.

    I don't think there is any limit to how far he could lower the bar for himself and slither over to raucous applause 7 days a week.


I have no tolerances for left wingers, illegal-occupiers, America-hating, Christian-hating, right-wing hating, Jew-hating, scum. If you have an issue with that. You are free to leave and go to another blog, there are millions of them out there, and a half of million who love your kind.
