Earlier, I posted on Barack Obama's stuttering and fumbling while desperately trying to remember 'his' soldier's name, during the first debate.
Remember, he had to peek at the bracelet to remember Ryan Jopeck's name. Fumbling and stuttering, looking for that missing teleprompter.
Now it comes out that Sergeant Ryan David Jopek's mother asked Senator Obama to stop wearing the bracelet..
Jopek began by saying that his ex-wife was taken aback, even upset, that Obama has made the death of her son a campaign issue. Jopek says his wife gave Obama the bracelet because "she just wanted Mr. Obama to know Ryan's name." Jopek went on to say that "she wasn't looking to turn it into a big media event" and "just wanted it to be something between Barack Obama and herself." Apparently, they were all shocked it became such a big deal.But, he also said that his ex-wife has refused further interviews on the matter and that she wanted Obama to stop wearing the reminder of her son's sacrifice.
The bottom line is: Barack Obama was asked to not wear the bracelet. He wore the bracelet, like he occasionally wears a flag pin, because he has to make people think he actually cares about our soldiers, dead or alive. A means to an end.
A false and phony pretense, from a Chicago politician trained in the Alinsky Narrative.
Change we don't need.
