Sign Our Petition to Congressman Coffman
Tell Rep. Mike Coffman that Veterans don't use their service as an excuse to smear the Commander-in-Chief. American exceptionalism is about holding ourselves to a higher standard. If Rep. Coffman believes in that, it's time he ends the smears and starts leading by example.

To use your status as a Veteran as an excuse to call the Commander-in-Chief un-American is shocking, disgusting and disgraceful.
American exceptionalism means holding our country to a higher standard. Without a doubt, President Obama’s policies and actions reflect a belief that, as Americans, we must lead the world by example. That includes showing respect for other countries, cultures and religions, building alliances when we can, but also striking at those who do us harm – like Osama bin Laden.
What undermines American exceptionalism is comments such as yours, Congressman Coffman. You have undermined our politics and our democracy – the very foundation of what makes American great. What is worse, you used your service in the Marine Corps as an excuse to make those attacks on the Commander-in-Chief. Such statements are a disgrace to those who have worn the uniform.
Congressman Coffman, stop using your Veteran status to smear the patriotism of the President who ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, took thousands of troops out of harms way and has nearly doubled the Veterans budget. If you truly believe in American exceptionalism, start by leading by example when it comes to our democracy and political debate.
