Remember the debate Friday night, when Senator Obama said, “I have a bracelet too” Good Old WHAT’S HIS NAME? He had the name of an American Hero Sergeant Ryan David Jopek . Well Sgt Jopek’s mother asked the Senator to STOP WEARING THE BRACELET because she didn’t want it to become a campaign Issue. Obama ignored her request. It seems that he REALLY DOESN’T GIVE A RATS ARSE ABOUT MRS JOPEK OR HER SON “WHAT’S HIS NAME” and of course no mention of this in the media. If the reverse was true, and Cpl Stanly’s mother asked McCain to take off the bracelet, the MSM would have it tattooed on their foreheads!! Read more below:
Family Told Obama NOT To Wear Soldier Son’s Bracelet… Where is Media? By Warner Todd HustonCreated 2008-09-28 03:53
Brian Jopek: Because of some of the negative feedback she’s gotten on the Internet, you know Internet blogs, you know people accusing her of… or accusing Obama of trying to get votes doing it… and that sort of thing. Radio Host Moberg: Yeah Jopek: She has turned down any subsequent interviews with the media because she just didn’t want it to get turned into something that it wasn’t. She had told me in an email that she had asked, actually asked Mr. Obama to not wear the bracelet any more at any of his public appearances. Which I don’t think he’s… Moberg: It has been a while since he’s brought it up. Jopek: Right. But, the other night I was watching the news and he was on, uh, speaking somewhere and he was still wearing it on his right wrist. I could see it on his right wrist. So, that’s his own choice. I mean that’s something Barack Obama, that’s a choice that he continues to wear it despite Tracy asking him not to… Because she is a Barack Obama supporter and she didn’t want to do anything to sabotage his campaign, so, if he’s still wearing the bracelet then, uh, that of course is entirely up to him. Moberg: Maybe there’s a difference between wearing it and making a point to bring it up in your speeches?
Even the snow job that the radio host tried to pull off to cover for Barack’s refusing the wishes of the family of the KIA soldier who’s bracelet he wears doesn’t pass the smell test. After all, now that Obama has made it a big point in the debates, I guess the silent observance of Sgt. Jopek is no longer so silent and Obama is back to exploiting the death of a soldier even when he was asked NOT to do so by that soldier’s parents. To pile insult onto injury here, the Mother doesn’t even want to force the issue of telling Obama to stop exploiting her son because she wants to see him win the election. Obama is not only taking advantage of this brave soldier’s death, he is taking advantage of the good wishes of the man’s Mother who doesn’t want to hurt the campaign. This all makes Obama look pretty calculating and blood chillingly callous, doesn’t it? And, why is the media not playing this story? The radio show on which this interview is heard happened all the way back in March. How is it the media missed this? Is it because they are also don’t want to hurt Obama’s campaign? I can only say that if the parents of the soldier whose bracelet John McCain is wearing had said in public that they want him to stop wearing their son’s bracelet the news would have been coast to coast, and wall to wall, not just ignored in Madison, Wisconsin. Obama’s use of this soldier that fell in the line of duty is tainted by his ambition and callousness. And the media is letting him get away with it.
