Posted on 09/28/2008 4:12:21 AM PDT by Tom_Busch
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

Cindy Shaeen clone who hates her son for joining the service against her antiwar demands.
Can’t say what I’d like to do to the left for what they’ve done to our country.
It’s all about race.
Sadly, if a public figure is politically correct, nothing bad he does matters, and if he is politically incorrect, the slightest thing becomes a major scandal.
Ted Kennedy drinks and drives, a girl dies with no attempt to help her, and he is "the lion of the Senate". Clarence Thomas possibly read Playboy and made a few ribald jokes, and he is a stupid, evil, sexist pervert.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
Their influence is waning, so they are trying even harder than before.
Never before in an election cycle has the media been this biased. Its frankly, scary.
Many around here cheer when a MSM newspaper lays people off and talks about the dinosaur media. But the bottom line is that although there is plenty of center-right commentary out there (blogs, radio, Fox, etc.), there is a complete absence of any widely read print media with reporters with a center-right perspective.
I have a front plate on my full sized Dodge P/U that reads "INFIDEL". It's bait for the muslim slime that can read.
Perhaps it's time to replace it with one that reads "0bama is a lying half-breed".
Think that would draw the 0bama "truth squads" into firing range?
GREAT pic, love it!
I’m going to steal that graphic of yours and spread it as far and wide as Bernadette Dohrn’s thighs! ;) LOL
I second the motion.
Indeed, this soldiers voice crieth out from the ground.
Did Obama steal this bracelet?
Should the US consider adopting the European style where people already know what kind of perspective they would find when they read a newspaper or a magazine?
If this was Sarah Palin, it would be the top stroy of the day.
ONE TIME PING to the folks discussing these issues on “I’ve Got a Bracelet Too Thread” ( http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2091638/posts ) from the other night (as well as a few of my FRiends). I hope you all don’t mind. I thought for SURE you all would be interested in seeing this thread!
THIS is something that needs to be spread far and wide.
A bunch of us had discussed this issue on another thread the other night and local articles with quotes from Mrs. Jopek were posted on that thread. I then made the comment that from the statements made by Mrs. Jopek Obama seemed to mis-characterize what she had told him when she gave it to him.
If this is true - and I have no reason to doubt it - then it’s even WORSE than his having to look down to remember the Sgt. Jopek’s name (may he rest in peace).
What a SCUM Obama is! He is truly an evil person, and I do NOT make that statement lightly. If he comes to power here in the US I fear he will make Stalin look like an angel.
They used to at least kind of try to hide their blatant bias and act all indignant when the accusation was made.
Now, they don't even bother. They make it quite clear that they are in the tank for Obama, no holds barred.
