In what I regard as a singular mark of disrespect, Barack Obama has been caught using auto-signed letters to the next of kin …
Obama Honored Fallen SEALs By Sending Their Parents a Form Letter Signed By Electric Pen
On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.
Yesterday, Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn, spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots outside the RNC Convention in Tampa. Karen brought a copy of the form letter they were sent following their son’s death.
It’s a form letter.
These are not campaign donors who are sent routine letters thanking them for their donations …
These are the parents and next of kin of men and women who have lost their lives in the service of their country. To believe that any President does not have the time to personally sign condolence letters for fallen soldiers – when he continually shoots hoops, golfs and vacations on the taxpayer’s dime is unbelievable.
Bottom line …
Barack Obama has always been regarded by many, myself included, as a lazy self-indulgent narcissist who appears to have things handed to him by affirmative action or to fulfill the role assigned to him by others. Here is a so-called constitutional scholar and the Editor of the Harvard Law Review with not one published article on constitutional issues or anything else. Here is a man whose early life remains a mystery to the very people who had elected him to the highest office. Here is a man who wrote not one, but two autobiographies while a young man. Of course, written under the suspicion that one or both were probably ghostwritten. Here is a man who received a Nobel Peace Prize for zero accomplishments.
And here is a man who is an empty suit whose pattern of failure and ineptitude is likely to be repeated if re-elected.
But this latest revelation disgusts me most of all. Disrespecting fallen soldiers and their families and treating them if they were $3 campaign donors is not only unacceptable, but WRONG.
