New York, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
Political controversies sparked this year's Memorial Day. One of which that made quite a stir was Chris Hayes' comment about the term 'hero'. According to an article from foxnews.com, the political commentator expressed his discomfort with the word being tied to those fallen of war. And in a way, the said lefty comment posed a danger to Obama's campaign, GreenBeanBuddy.com shared.
Based on the article, the controversial statement was made on Hayes' own MSNBC show “Up With Chris Hayes.” In the comment, the liberal political commentator said that he was uncomfortable with the word 'heroes' being locked with those who died in war as, in his own words, “it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war,” the article added.
The following day, Hayes apologized for his comment on his show's website, it was said. Nonetheless, the article stated that the comment already posed a danger to Obama's campaign making it harder to win the veterans majority.

Chris Hayes, an open liberal, on Sunday early recognized the heroes of war in what others say as a very lefty way. The political commentator said on his MSNBC show “Up With Chris Hayes” that he is uncomfortable with the word 'hero' tied with those who died in war. As he said, “it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war.”

According to a Gallup survey, 54 percent of the veterans are rooting for Mitt Romney and only 34 percent of them are in favor of the current president, news website GreenBeanBuddy.com related. However, because of the controversial 'hero' statement from a lefty, the conservative's lead over the liberals among the veterans could likely increase, commented the website.
