    How many times did Mint Rawmoney mention veterans or the troops during his RNC acceptance speech? I can’t recall offhand.

    Official count: Zero. GOP didn’t honor veterans, nor even mention them. GOP pretended wars in Iraq and Afghanistan never happened. GOP ignored the First Responders. GOP ignored anyone in America who isn’t a financier.

    As I recall he mentioned neither the veterans, the troops or even mentioned the wars.

    Then of course there is Labor day in which the GOP, not once, mentioned..you know…labor.

    Its as if they pretend that corprate CEOs and owners do it all by themselves.

    Oh wait..that’s exactly what they pretend.

    One would think the GOP would be smart enough to figure out that 99% of their base do not own companies but work in them. But no..the GOP once again goes out of its way to blatantly insult them.
