YOUR OPINION: Obama’s choice criticized

Dear Editor:

Fox News just ran a story on a fallen solider. Megan Kelly was the reporter. The parents of the soldier got a from letter of condolence from their congresswoman; it had the soldier’s name wrong. The father contacted both the congresswoman and the president. He asked if they both would correct this.

The congresswoman apologized. The soldier’s father requested that Obama phone his wife, the boy’s mother. The reply was The commander-in-chief was busy and could not schedule the phone call. That is the same week he called the Eagles football team to thank the owner for giving Michael Vick a second chance.

When Fox News asked the White House about this they were told Obama’s call to the Eagles’ owner was to thank him for green improvements the owner had made. Fox contacted the owner and he advised them Vick was the first thing they talked about.

If you, who are reading this, put yourself in the role of commander-in-chief which would be the more important if you had to choose? I believe you would have consoled a grieving mother of this fallen son before praising the second chance of a football player.

Obama needs to be gone in 2012. He is no leader. I can’t believe he’s a patriot.

May God see us through the emperor Obama years.
