VIDEO=> Obama SCOLDS America During Medal of Honor Ceremony at White House
Barack Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to Army Sgt. William Shemin and Private Henry Johnson who demonstrated conspicuous gallantry during World War I. The two were awarded the highest military honor nearly a century after their service.

During the ceremony Obama scolded America for its transgressions.
He couldn’t help it.
“While it has taken a long time for Henry Johnson and William Shemin to receive the recognition they deserve, and there are surely others whose heroism is still unacknowledged and uncelebrated. So we have work to do as a nation to make sure that all of our hero’s stories are told. And we’ll keep at it no matter how long it takes.”
Not everyone appreciated the public scolding.
Why must Obama exploit Henry Johnson's Medal of Honor ceremony in an attempt to score political points?

So were there no White WWI Veterans overlooked for a Medal of Honor? Why is everything with Obama about the color of ones skin? Ugh!

Obama should just give the Medal of Honor to every black that ever served in WWI, WWII, and the 'Nam and just be done with it already.
