Barry Hussein Soetero just cancelled the 4th of July holiday for thousands of US service members in the African/Middle east theater.

He spent upwards of $150 million on his African vacation, including travel, food, security and lodging for himself, his wife Moochelle, his mother in law and children.

YET....he cancelled the traditional fireworks for the Marines at Camp Lejune, citing "budget issues." The show costs $75,000. When the fireworks company learned of the cancellation, they offered to do the show at no charge. Soetero turned them down, citing "security concerns."

So, get this straight. We have $150 million to pay for a vacation for Soetero's leech of a mother in law but we don't have $75,000 for a 4th of July fireworks show for thousands of warriors who truly keep us safe.

You can see where the military ranks in Soetero's list of priorities-very low.
