Obama a "buffoon"??? You decide

Much has been said about Obama's "Me too! Me tooooooooo!" moment about the bracelet McCain mentioned in the debate the other night. We have all heard about Obama needing to read the name, since the fallen heroes name who he supposedly honours on his wrist, was not on the tip of his tongue. I am SURE you all read Master Gunner's thoughts on that. You DID, didn't you? ;)

Comes even more insight on this topic:

Family Told Obama NOT To Wear Soldier Son's Bracelet... Where is Media?

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....

I say..I cannot trust nor have any respect for a man who cannot even remember the name on the KIA bracelet he wears. That was completely disrespectful of the family who is grieving for the fallen soldier. And for Obama to do it just after McCain spoke of the KIA bracelet he wears, well can we say "But mine's better than yours!!"

Dear Lord, this man wants to be President?? Really?? Maybe, (I can pray anyway) we have all just been punked..yeah that's the ticket!! Or maybe it has all been some mass hysteria induced nightmare perpetuated by the Leftards. (Please let it be true!) We will all wake up in the morning & this will all have been a bad dream....
