You all might remember the moment during the debates when John McCain told the story of the mother giving him her dead son’s bracelet and how Senator McCain eloquently and from a fond memory recited the story and the soldier’s name. And you may also remember Senator Obama’s fumbling and quite staged point of saying, “I have a soldier’s bracelet too.” It was fumbling because he didn’t have a teleprompter and actually had to look at the bracelet to figure out whose it was and it was staged because he no longer had permission to wear the bracelet that had been given to him by the mother. Quite the contrary, Senator Obama was told by the family of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek of Merrill, Wisconsin to not wear the bracelet any longer.
Now of course ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, and the Today Show are not going to cover this and this is why we have outlets such as NewsBusters to expose the lies and deceit that is Barack Obama. Make sure everyone who is voting for or considering voting for Barack Obama knows this. As a retired Army First Sergeant and a parent who lost his son in Iraq, my level of contempt and disgust of Barack Obama for the exploitation of a dead soldier and refusal to adhere to the wishes of a Gold Star Family defies words and knows no boundaries.
I loathe Barack Obama and no longer consider this man to be honorable. He is despicable and only a heartfelt and contrite confession and apology from the Senator will change my disgust for this man. He calls himself a Christian; let’s see if he is capable of displaying a Christian character and repent of this shameful conduct.
I’ll continue normal breathing patterns as I wait for his conversion.
