Barack Obama played the "me too" game during the Friday debates on September 26 after Senator John McCain mentioned that he was wearing a bracelet with the name of Cpl. Matthew Stanley, a resident of New Hampshire and a soldier that lost his life in Iraq in 2006. Obama said that he too had a bracelet. After fumbling and straining to remember the name, he revealed that his had the name of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek of Merrill, Wisconsin.
Shockingly, however, Madison resident Brian Jopek, the father of Ryan Jopek, the young soldier who tragically lost his life to a roadside bomb in 2006, recently said on a Wisconsin Public Radio show that his family had asked Barack Obama to stop wearing the bracelet with his son's name on it. Yet Obama continues to do so despite the wishes of the family

Isn’t the news out yet that Obama is the Second Coming? You don’t tell Barry what to do, so sit down and shut up. (Any more complaints and we’ll prosecute you and throw you in jail. And no signs at his rallies, either.)
the media’s on his side. I’m beginning to think we’re living in a Soviet-style country in which the media is VERY one sided. Not controlled by the Dems, but they might as well be.
Never before in an election cycle has the media been this biased. It’s frankly, scary.
At least the ex had the intelligence to get rid of her ... I guess.
What we do for a roll in the hay.
“Im beginning to think” I realized that one about 12 years ago and it just gets worse and worse.
Tony Blankley wrote a great article the other day about the media.
“I realized that one about 12 years ago and it just gets worse and worse.”
I agree, but it’s never been THIS blatant. They were never fawning over Kerry or Gore like they are over 0. This is unprecidented.
You apparently weren’t paying attention in 2000 when the presstitutes were almost successful in a coup to seat algore as president.
She is brainwashed. Like the little girls that throw panties up on stage at a concert.
She is embarrassed but not so embarrassed to make it right. Sad.
Oh, this may be it for BO.
Using one of our dead heroes as a prop is bad enough. But to go against the wishes of the dead hero’s family so openly and blatantly is just beyond disgusting.
Let’s see you backtrack out of THIS, BO.
So why isn’t the mother speaking for herself? When she gave the bracelet to a PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE in support of troop withdrawal and non-intervention, she was explicitly being political. It’s a gift that will keep on giving....
I respectfully nominate this thread for, “Breaking News.”
It looks like the source on the mother’s wishes is the ex-husband. That’s no reason to cry false on the accusation, but it’s not very direct evidence, either.
The left realizes it must take this election or loose the world.
With other country’s moving to the right the socialists MUST take America left.
With the Nationalizing of a large part of the fin industry in the US their next target will be the domestic oil and gas reserves.
Welcome to the new world order.
America is becoming a nation of slaves to the uneducated working poor.
Next, taxes to give to the UN food program and help the poor in third world nations.
The fleecing of America.
Thanks, I should have marked it as breaking news.
