Conservatives Attack President Obama for Honoring Wounded US Soldier (Video)

During his State of the Union Address last night, President Obama honored Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg, an army ranger who was badly wounded in Afghanistan.

NBC News reports that Remsburg was hit in the head with shrapnel, which lodged in his brain, in 2009.

Remsburg was partially paralyzed, barely able to speak and brain-damaged, but is now able to walk and speak after numerous surgeries and years of rehabilitation.

However, today, Fox News’ "The Five" co-hosts Andrea Tantaros and Greg Gutfeld slammed Obama for honoring Remsburg, notes (video below).

“This heroic man was somewhat disconnected from the limp litany of grad school garbage that came before, and it felt like it was placed at the end of the speech to armor against scrutiny.” said Gutfeld.

“It was really moving at the end, but I felt like I was being used,” added Gutfeld.

“It sounds like you feel like Cory was being used as a human shield from criticism,” stated Tantaros.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh claimed President Obama honored Remsburg to say "look what George Bush is responsible for," notes (audio below).
