Veteran Tax Break A Boon for Corporate America or Political Pandering To A Deserving Special Interest Group? ?

President Obama has gone after the nation's corporations for having way too many tax breaks....then he turns around and gives them another tax hire veterans....a deserving group if there ever was one!

Although his heart (and politics) is well intentioned, which message is being heard by the American public?

Veterans are a very well deserved special interest group, and I support any effort to afford them the recognition they deserve for being willing to serve their country (please see Mitt Romney's five sons....not!).

My son is our family's fifth generation soldier (20 years Air Force) ...and I am unashamedly a gung ho supporter of acknowledging veterans' contributions to this nation's efforts to sustain the liberty we enjoy.

President Obama has been accused of pandering to being responsive to those who were  drafted or voluntarily enlisted to do what millions would that pandering...why is paying the debt to those Americans such a bad thing?  Is there ever a good time or bad time to do that?

And speaking of what Romney did in New Hampshire (calling out New Hampshire's Ayotte as a potential Republican VP) anything short of targeted, short-term political pandering?
