You would think that as the Greatest Orator Ever Ever EVAH in the whole world, and the smartest President EVER, with the most bloated staff ever, with the most easy internet access to Wikkipedia ever, with the fastest, sharpest, youngest team of writers ever that the President of the United States might be able to send something other than a form letter to bereaved parents?
Absolutely disgusting. A Houston news outlet has investigated:
"Local 2 Investigates examined two other letters sent by
Obama to families of soldiers killed in action. The one-page typed
condolence letters were identical other than names, ranks and service
Houston we have a big problem here.
The PDFs are here and here.
Rest in Peace, USMC Cpl. Joseph D. Logan.
Congratulations to investigative reporter Joe Eisenbaum for publishing this travesty.
Ezra Levant says that Obama is a lazy lightweight.
I have to agree. He says:
"The 60 million Americans who watched that debate had been told a
hundred times that Obama was the smartest president since Jefferson,
the greatest orator since Churchill. And they had been told that Mitt
Romney was a heartless gazillionaire."
"What they saw was the
opposite, for 90 excruciating minutes. When Obama didn’t have a cue
card or a teleprompter, when he couldn’t simply skip questions he
didn’t like, or talk out the clock, he was a disaster.
The 90 minutes was summed up in a plaintive appeal, a whine, really, from Obama, mid-debate, to the moderator, Jim Lehrer."
“You may want to move on to the next topic,” he pleaded. But this was one time the media could not save him.
I agree with Ezra's assessment, but think that there is something fundamentally evil and despicable about the way the Obama administration has handed out pathetic form letters to the families of soldiers who died in the line of duty. It's completely disgraceful.
