Obama Honored Fallen SEALs By Sending Their Parents a Form Letter Signed By Electric Pen

On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.

Yesterday, Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn, spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots outside the RNC Convention in Tampa. Karen brought a copy of the form letter they were sent following their son’s death.

It’s a form letter.

It was signed by an electric pen.

That’s not all.
Karen Vaughn reached out to the parents of the other SEALs killed in that crash.
Their letters were all the same.
Form letters – signed by an electric pen.

Here’s a closer look at the letter sent to the parents of Chief Petty Officer Nicholas H. Null.
It’s the same form letter.

After the deadliest single loss of US forces in Afghanistan, Barack Obama sent out form letters to the parents.

UPDATE: But Obama did send a personal letter to rapper Heavy D’s family when he passed away.

    When reading the letter, I am reminded of the wording used in President Lincoln’s condolence letter as read in the movie Saving Private Ryan. Very similar style and many identical choices of words. Sickening as it seems, I think whomever wrote this for Obama was paraphrasing from the Lincoln letter. I am very disturbed at how ruthlessly callous this is. Not surprized, just disturbed.

    Don’t Build a Database of Ruin

    [If we stick to our current path, the Database of Ruin will become an inevitable fixture of our future landscape, one that will be littered with lives ruined by the exploitation of data assembled for profit. But we can chart a different course, in various ways. I think our brightest engineers can develop innovative privacy-enhancing technologies which will enable new techniques for data analytics that minimize costs to privacy. I hope that public institutions and industry, through self-regulation, will devise ways to better balance the burdens on privacy and the benefits of Big Data. If nothing else, I anticipate that society will slowly develop new norms for engaging with the massive amount of information collected about us, creating informal rules governing when and how it is appropriate to release, collect, and use data, the way minors have learned to speak and listen carefully on social networks.]

    It’s because the administration sold out SEAL Team Six. These men were human sacrifices so Bin Laden’s fan base doesn’t take it out on the president directly. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

    here you go..

    [Many businesses today find themselves locked in an arms race with competitors to see who can convert customer secrets into the most pennies. To try to win, they are building perfect digital dossiers, to use a phrase coined by Daniel Solove, massive data stores containing hundreds, if not thousands or tens of thousands, of facts about every member of our society. In my work, I’ve argued that these databases will grow to connect every individual to at least one closely guarded secret. This might be a secret about a medical condition, family history, or personal preference. It is a secret that, if revealed, would cause more than embarrassment or shame; it would lead to serious, concrete, devastating harm. And these companies are combining their data stores, which will give rise to a single, massive database. I call this the Database of Ruin. Once we have created this database, it is unlikely we will ever be able to tear it apart.]

    The military/families have figured Obama out long before now. Obama gave Iraq away. That simple. He helped overthrow our ally. He does nothing to help our ally protesters in Iran and Syria.

    He allows the daily killing of our soldiers in Afgan, all the while setting up the situation of a no-win. He apologizes while they kill our boys.

    I wouldn’t blame a soldier for spitting. Our soldiers understand the risks when they sign up or make careers, but this is unacceptable. Do you think they buy all this newfound respect for the military after his voting record, leaking and actions? We must help them.

    Great Moments in Autopen History

    [Minutes before midnight, after a landslide House vote of 250-153,
    President Obama signed legislation backing a four-year extension
    on the controversial USA PATRIOT Act. (Did you know that’s an
    acronym for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing
    Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism?
    Now you do.) Yay, habeas corpus denials, warrantless searches
    and carte blanche wiretapping! Four more years! Four more years!

    Because the president was in France, he was required to sign it using an
    autopen machine: that rare and wonderful device favored by politicians,
    sports stars and celebrities, that can mechanically reproduce the act of
    signing one’s autograph. (See one in action here!)

    Since first being patented in the U.S. in 1804 by English inventor John
    Isaac Hawkins, the autopen has scribbled its way into American history
    — and infamy — over and over again.]

    aah, there’s Isaac again, when will we the people get a clue.. too many
    lies and negatively v positive truths, which will win the day?? Gods light
    or the Nothings darkness??

    Under Obama, Faith in Army’s Direction Falls to All-Time Low of 26%

    [The number of Army leaders who believe that the largest military branch
    is heading in the right direction has hit an all-time low, according to an
    independent survey of 17,000 commissioned and non-commissioned officers.

    In a global survey conducted in November and December of 2011, only 26
    percent of Army leaders who participated agreed with the statement that
    the Army “is headed in the right direction to prepare for the challenges of
    the next 10 years.”]

    But for a President to send these family this, it is like a “sorry, we aren’t able to fit you into our business at this time.” Typical form letter, no personal thought, condolences, or prayers.

    Bush sent personal letters…

    “Mr. Bush, for instance, has sent personal letters to the families of every one of the more than 4,000 troops who have died in the two wars, an enormous personal effort that consumed hours of his time and escaped public notice. The task, along with meeting family members of troops killed in action, has been so wrenching – balancing the anger, grief and pride of families coping with the loss symbolized by a flag-draped coffin – that the president often leaned on his wife, Laura, for emotional support.”

    Published: February 20, 2009
    President Barack Obama has asked staffers to gather details about troops killed in overseas operations so he can personalize condolence letters to their families, according to a report in the Washington Times this week.

    #60,
    Bush was famous AND beloved by the troops because part of his job was to CALL or to VISIT with the families of those fallen.He also was routinely found at the planes of the returning fallen soldiers, as well as being there for the memorial day at the tomb of the unknown soldier. Obama has routinely passed on being at the tomb and he has not met a plane of returning fallen soldiers since the very beginning of his dictatorship. he is in love with himself…with little cause, which is what usually happens. It’s a shame he and Putin are on the outs since reportedly Putin is also living it up in grand style and turning a blind eye to the people who are being incarcerated and oppressed because they dare to criticize him. . . make no mistake, Obama would LOVE that ability.

  • JesseUSN(ret)

    Obama is an incompetent fool voted into the office by ignorant voters. He has no idea what leadership is, that respect is earned and is necessary to lead. Obama had not earned respect of the military, therefore, he is not fit to lead. Obama is one dumb fool, a mistake for a president. This has to be rectified this November…. Oopps, sorry for us here in California, this state is populated by liberals, sigh….

  • Well, you must admit, Mr Obama has been consistent over the days of his presidential term with his preoccupation with golf, basketball, and his re-election fundraisers?

    I sure don’t see any evidence of masterful competence in anything he has done.

    You would think (and hope) that he’d be smart enough to read some of Abraham Lincoln’s letters to the parents of sons who died in service to the country during the Civil War, as inspiration and to comprehend the gravity of the loss. But it appears that for that to happen, Mr Obama would have to be a different person.

    This November, I hope that Mr Obama loses his re-election. He is not up to being the president of the United States of America.

    This just clearly demonstrates that the incident that cost the lives of 17 of our bravest did not evoke any emotional response from President Obama. I believe most President’s find the office to be a sacred responsibility but others consider it a prize. President Obama clearly falls into the latter category. I actually think the work of being President does not interest him much. Also, I can’t help but think about Abraham Lincoln and the countless personal letters he wrote to families and the emotional toll the war placed on him.

  • There is another story here that people forgot…
    Please read this. I wrote it awhile back. Sadly, it is all true.

    On August 6, 2011, a U.S. CH-47 Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan, killing everyone on board. It was the worst single-incident loss of American life since the start of the war, with 30 American service members killed, 22 of them Navy SEALs.

    Three days later the bereaved families gathered at Dover Air Force Base for the solemn Dignified Transfer of remains, “to honor those who have given their lives in service of our country” upon their final return home. Regarding media coverage, the families together, as per SECDEF policy, reached a decision and notified the Pentagon they did not consent to having media present, and that no images be released or made public. The Pentagon delivered their decision to the president himself…who then disregarded it.

    In fact, President Obama had photographer Peter Souza accompany him and had reelection campaign pictures taken of himself saluting caskets…that he would exclude.

    As documented, President Obama used the offending image at least twice, making it a White House Photo of the Day, despite the controversy and public outcry then. And last December, he used the same “Saluting Obama” image — taken for caskets containing the remains of those who died in Afghanistan — and inserted into a campaign video he calls “Ending the War in Iraq: A Promise Kept”. It appears at the 2:08 mark.

    When asked about public distribution of the image, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the picture was carefully taken so that it did not show the cases containing remains. In other words, President Obama — wanting that picture of himself for both his legacy and political campaign — doubled down on his abject disregard for the military and wishes of the bereaved families by making the image public and using their CASKETS AS PROPS.

    My opinion follows…
    As an American, I cannot fathom a Commander-in-Chief acting or even thinking like that. In my humble opinion, I find what President Obama did to be morally repugnant and absolutely disgraceful.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Sincerely,

    an American citizen and U.S. Navy Veteran

    It’s all about priorities you know! You really cannot expect someone as wonderful and intelligent and articulate as President Obama to actually stop golfing, campaigning and lying long enough to actually pen a personal response to our heroes families for their child’s ultimate sacrifice for his country and our freedom. After all, the USA is not even Obama’s country; just ask Michelle, his literary agent, his grandmothers, his half brother and sister and the Kenyan government who have ALL SAID Obama was born in KENYA! He obviously doesn’t have enough time in his busy schedule to care about anyone but himself. What a sad, little man he is!

  • ThinkAboutIt

    This is what happens when the election laws are not upheld, allowing an individual to cheat against those laws, a formerly self-proclaimed foreign student who benefited monetarily by this claim, then when election comes up somehow denies being foreign. A man of obvious hatred for what American has stood for for over 236 years, obvious fraudulent acts, overstepping constitutional law on his way to destroying jobs, while out the other side of his mouth says he’s for the middle class, but destroys those who create real private sector sustainable jobs.

    Who also, obviously, hates everything about our defence personnel, with all his Muslim internals.

    You folks don’t understand. President Barack Hussein Obama has a very busy schedule. Politcal campaigns, golf and being entertained by hollywood sycophants. Then onto consulting with those same hollywood sycophants on how they can make a movie using the Navy seals to prop up a failed presidency e.g using Seal Team 6 to demonstrate how the brave Obama killed Bin Laden.

  • I am a conservative, and pray that the Lord be with your time of sorrow. But I honestly think the signatures look different.

    You can be sure that Obama would not send form letters he rubber stamped if he was inviting Beyonce, Jay-Z, George Clooney, The Oprah, Ellen Barken, Samuel Jackson, et al, to another party at The White House paid for by we, the taxpayers. Shame on him for disrespecting our soldiers who gave all for this country.

  • TxNurse

    To all of the posters noting the slight variation in the signatures–it is the AutoPen. To try to hide the look of a stamped signature, there is built in flexibility in the system which makes a slight variation from one signature to the next. Also depends how the paper is oriented below the pen.

  • Geechee

    It’s not just Obama.
    This is the same veiled disdain the Dems have for the entire military.
    I remember the day the Clinton’s moved into the White House years ago, and a military aide at the celebration approached a Clinton staffer inquiring about some matter, and the staffer cut him off with “We don’t talk to uniforms”.
    These are the same folks who tried to disallow the votes of overseas military personnel during the Bush-Gore race, and who just recently were “shocked, do you hear, shocked!” to learn that thousands of military absentee ballots were mailed out late. The motivation is obvious, if you look at how many military personnel voted R vs. D in 2008.
    The is the guy who tried to award the MOH to a soldier he described as “living”, but had actually been killed the year before.
    I don’t know why any of this surprises anyone.

  • DecentAmerican

    He has time, lots and lots and lots of time, to play golf, but not a few minutes to personally sign letters to families of precious soldiers who died on our behalf, fighting for our liberties?

    He goes around bowing to foreign leaders, while brave men and woen fought so that Americans will never have to bow before a foreign leader again?

    He armed our border guards like Brian Terry, with bean bag bullets, yet armed the Mexican cartel enemies with assault rifles in fast and furious, who ended up murdering
    Terry with American guns?

    There is no way around it, if you vote for this savage again, you are just about guilty of treason.

    Libs keep sayin: “Rumsfeld did it”; that may be true but his the President! Big diff!
    Even if he did sign it, that GIANT B and O, says something about his lack of masculinity

  • CFH

    #244, that (or something like it) may be the explanation; but the variation is more than “slight”, and has nothing to do with paper orientation. Look at the tops of the “O”s, and the loop that begins it: those are more than just slight variations. So even if these really are auto-pen signatures, the evidence presented here doesn’t back up that claim, and so invites the charge of falsehood. We should be better than the Left, and either provide sufficient evidence for claims, or avoid them if we can’t.

    What’s the difference? Even if he signed it by hand it wouldn’t be any warmer or more heartfelt. Everyone knows of Obama’s disdain for the military. It is evidenced by his “crotch salute” whenever “honoring” his troops [For those who are wondering…it means standing with your hands folded at crotch-level in front of you when typically the Commander-in-Chief would be saluting his troops or his flag…which Obama has repeatedly failed to do].”

    That’s a GD lie and you are a GD Liar!!!

    For the President to Salute would have gone against Military Courtesy, which you would have known if you weren’t so ignorant.

    Furthermore, for the rest of you Fourth Rate Traitors, what ever Obama said about the Raid, he was told by the Seals who were the only ones there!! So if you got any problems with that, take it up with the Military.

    I can let the form letter thing go, it is a nice batch of words.

    HOWEVER, under no circumstances would you EVER autopen a letter with this purpose. You can find time in your busy day to personally sign such important correspondence. That simply defies explanation how that happened.

    Of course, this is the White House that spent $300,000-plus tax dollars to run Air Force One out to New York for a photo op above the Statue of Liberty, terrorizing people across the city in the process.

    It has been almost four years and Obama and his team are still making horrendously incompetent decisions. Joe Biden is so far beyond the ineptitude the media unfairly saddled Dan Quayle with, it isn’t even funny.

    Obama has utterly failed to deliver on the promises he made to the American people. To reelect him would be unfathomable for the future of our nation.

    For all of Bush’s Faults, of which there were many, I truly do believe he suffered each loss deeply. He did take his responsibility seriously.

    One can only wish we had not lost so many of our best warriors in this eleven year war.
    Personally I thank God we have men such as are found within the Naval Special Warfare ranks. It may sound cliche, but we all sleep safely in our beds thanks to the the efforts of the SEALs, Delta et al. They do the jobs others will not do. May God protect them.

    Still, it is disgraceful to send form letters to families of fallen servicemen.

    After ‘bragging’ about Seal Team 6 I believe he made them targets for the enemy, more so than they would have been if he had not disclosed details of the mission. They risked their lives for that mission, he risked nothing consequential by comparison. After accomplishing the task, they did not seek for credit or acknowledgment but his boasting put them in the spotlight. That too was shameful.

  • CFH

    #292, what you say might be true; but how would one know? If a group of signatures are all made with a pen (auto or otherwise), and all differ from one another, then how could you know that they were made with an auto-pen?

    Think about it: If the signatures were stamped, you could tell by the impression and the distinctive pattern of the ink on the paper. If they were all identical, that would obviously be mechanical. But if they are made with a pen, and all differ, how could one possibly know they are mechanical?

    So again, I’m not saying they definitely aren’t made with auto-pen; but I am saying that the evidence presented here is insufficient to show that they _are_ made with auto-pen. And if there _is_ evidence to support the claim, it should be presented.

    It behooves us non-Leftists, who unlike the Left believe that truth exists and that it matters — even more than winning — to provide sufficient evidence for claims; or if we can’t, to not make the claim in the first place. _We should and must be better than the Left_.

    Real Facts – you should be ashamed of your comments here;

    Pres Bush didn’t even attept to sign military deaths condolence letters in any form ( auto or not) to relatives of soldiers. Instead Bush left it to Rumsfeld to sign the letters and Rumsfeld had used a mechanical signature writer to sign his name on letters of condolence to relatives of soldiers. Proof with Source http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/dec/20/iraq.usa
    In fact many are disputing this allegation of this article since even though thegatewaypundit tried to blur the images of the letters, it is plainly observable that Obama’s signatures are different hence mostly likely not auto-penned or at least does not give reasonable proof of the allegations in the article.

    So to be clear, Bush would not put his name to letters like these and had Rumsfeld autopen them and it appears that Obama either actually signs both the letter and the certificate orat least just the certificate with this real signature as stared by commenter #272 of his Marine son’s death in Helmand Province Afghanistan in 2010.

    Give Obama a break he is too busy doing all the things he promised….like closing Gitmo…oh wait it’s still operating….and cutting the deficit……oh wait he added 4 trillion in debt…and lowering unemployment under 8%…oh wait it’s still 8.1%……come to think of it, this president hasn’t done anything at all.

    It would be hilarious if it weren’t for the scary comments that all one has to do is zoom in on these photos of the letters to clearly see that the signatures are different. No electronic pen and regardless, no sane reasoning that the President doesn’t respect the Armed Forces. Quite the opposite by FACT.

  • Not Likely

    Fred Brennion, while your question is a valid one, Obama did personally sign these letters.

  • FallenStar

    What a tool.!! What a Poser!!

    Perhaps the man does not wish to be to be accused or be convicted for forging a signature since no one knows WHO he is or WHAT his real name is.

    Thank you to the brave soldiers who fight and die so that the rest of the American people can live and watch their sons and daughters graduate from college, get married and lead peaceful lives. There should never be a moment of disrespect for any of these heroes. They possess more honor than any of us regular citizens will ever be able to claim. Thank you to the parents of these brave warriors who sit home at night worrying about receiving a letter or a visit confirming their worst fears. Your sacrifices allow the rest of us to take for granted the time we have with our children. One thing I will never allow my children to forget is the heroism that your sons and daughters demonstrate in the field on a daily basis. The best way that I can think of doing this is to remind my children that the happiness they experience in falling in love,buying a home,and starting a family was possible because brave and honorable warriors charged into battle and gave up their dreams.They did this for us.People they had never met.I tell my sons that it is their duty to never forget these warriors.These warriors who made their normal lives possible. I tell them they have a debt to pay these brave operators.That debt is to remember these beautiful people in their hearts and think of them as family. Lastly, they need to earn what these brave men have sacrificed.They need to better themselves and live with honor as these legends have shown us. This is my promise to the fallen soldiers and families. You have earned the right to be held above the rest.This is what I plan to do.Never forget your heroes.They are who define us as a people.Never allow another individual to degrade or demean their selfless and heroic acts. This is why we love our country.It is because we realize the true and heartbreaking sacrifices made by these families.These sacrifices are the foundation on which our great nation operates. I and my children will live by this. My children’s children will be taught this.Hopefully many others will as well.Their selfless actions and bravery should be viewed as the standard by which the rest of us live.God be with you all.

    >Sorry, y’all, but the signatures are all different, meaning they cannot have been signed electronically.<

    Are you kidding, or just stupid?

    Obama could have submitted 250 signatures to the guys who set up the autopen operation at wherever it was running. Then the autopen software could randomly select any one of the signatures in the database for each letter.

    Chances of getting caught doing this: very very small.

  • Wanda Garr

    With today’s technology, it makes sense to prepare a letter once on a word processor and print it several times. And, the autopen has been used to fix a signature by many presidents. Had The President prepared “different” letters for each family, I am sure someone would have complained that another got more sympathy or recognition than they did. You just cannot please some people (especially the TEA Party)–no matter what you do. The President was PERSONALLY involved with the families of these fallen soldiers. President Obama was at Dover AFB to receive the remains. There was time for prayer. And, The President spent time consoling the grieving families. From ArmyTimes, “At Dover, Obama honors troops killed in crash” by Ben Feller–The Associated Press: “The country didn’t see it. There will be no lasting, gripping images this time of Obama assuming his office’s grimmest role. No family could give permission for media coverage, the military said, because no individual bodies had been identified yet.” You might want to find this article on the Internet–and read it. If you do, I don’t think you will complain so much about the letters.

  • Paul Brinkerhoff

    While I am not at all suprised by this, it is what I have come to expect from this Lame leader of ours. It sickens and saddens me to no end.
    Recently the Navy Seals have come out with a documentary explaining how Obama has exposed tactical secrets while he is taking all the credit for capturing Bin Laden. How does the Pres. respond to the seals? “Oh well I don’t take those guys very seriously” He makes me so sick. His truth lies in his off the telepromter remarks. Stay tuned for more foot in mouth behavior from our POTUS.

  • Jeff D

    Do you imagine that George W. Bush sent individual, hand-signed letters to the families of each and every one of the 3,399 U.S. soldiers who fell in Iraq and Afghanistan on his watch?

    Just like Obama, all fake. He can’t even take a few minutes to set down and sign the letters. I bet he doesn’t even know what it says. But what else would one expect from a man who hates the U.S. Military? But then again, the military despises Obama. What you wanna bet that during the election military absentee ballots get “lost” or do not arrive “on time” to be counted because Obama knows the military will vote overwhelming Republican.

  • Pronghorn

    The deaths of all soldiers should be treated the same. If this form letter went out to every non-SEAL’s family, then it’s acceptable for the families of SEALs, too. If an original letter and genuine signature is desired for SEALs, then all soldiers deserve one.

  • CFH

    #362: yes, he could have, and yes, they might all be auto-pen, despite being different; but even if so, then _how could you tell_? As I said in my post #313 above:

    “#292, what you say might be true; but how would one know? If a group of signatures are all made with a pen (auto or otherwise), and all differ from one another, then how could you know that they were made with an auto-pen?

    Think about it: If the signatures were stamped, you could tell by the impression and the distinctive pattern of the ink on the paper. If they were all identical, that would obviously be mechanical. But if they are made with a pen, and all differ, how could one possibly know they are mechanical?

    So again, I’m not saying they definitely aren’t made with auto-pen; but I am saying that the evidence presented here is insufficient to show that they _are_ made with auto-pen. And if there _is_ evidence to support the claim, it should be presented.

    It behooves us non-Leftists, who unlike the Left believe that truth exists and that it matters — even more than winning — to provide sufficient evidence for claims; or if we can’t, to not make the claim in the first place. _We should and must be better than the Left_.”

  • Jeff D

    And, btw, the signatures on the 3 letters are clearly different, as someone previously pointed out.

    I can easily see that. It’s unquestionably a hand signed signature.

    Specifically, in the topmost image, the yellowish copy in the center shows a small open loop where the vertical stroke crosses the top of the letter O. The signature immediately to the right has no such loop.

    An electronic pen makes identical signatures. A human being never does.

The task, along with meeting family members of troops killed in action, has been so wrenching – balancing the anger, grief and pride of families coping with the loss symbolized by a flag-draped coffin – that the president often leaned on his wife, Laura, for emotional support.”.

    Reveling but not in a way you think. The letters I’m sure where sent in an almost business as usual way, from someplace down the tree of bureaucracy. What I find interesting is his lack of empathy or at least sympathy, apparently no personal effort was made by him as the Commander in Charge to console the grieving families..Either he doesn’t feel their pain or he finds the role of consoler in Chief uncomfortable. I have heard that once you get past his image, people who know him…. find him aloof. If members of his own Cabinet haven’t but heard from him but a few times over the last 3+ years, why yes why would he reach out to these families..

    Do you think if a politician had sent real letters with a real signature, they would care more? They’re all sociopaths or they don’t get that high up.

All these poor folks have health issues, the politicians who are so symbolically supportive at the start are all walking away from it.

    You could not be more wrong. President Bush personally signed evey single letter that was sent to a fallen soldier and while the letters themselves were form letters, he added a sentence to each letter so that the parents of each loved one knew that Bush had actually recognized their loved ones sacrifice. And many received an individually hand written letter if their actions went above and beyond. And he stopped in at a VA hopital everytime he traveled within a short distance of one. He walked in, prayed with the injured, held their stumps and hugged them. And evey soldier there knew he was there for them as he knew their names and often pinned on medals they had earned Sure, he had help behind the scenes, but he put forth the extra effort to visit on his own! And not once did he expect a camera to record his kindnesses. And trust me, our military knows very well the contempt that Obama has for them all!

  • David C. Hargrave

    Just wondering, since this story is factually irrefutably false, as all three signatures shown are CLEARLY different, is it possible that even 1 of the 400 or so ‘patriots’ who posted insulting and/or hateful comments, will go on the record and retract/apologize for their comments?

    I don’t expect you all to investigate a story like this once you’ve read the headline, but since I, and at least a dozen others have pointed out that ALL THREE SIGNATURES ARE DIFFERENT, do you now regret your rushes to judgment?

    1 out of 400 is all I’m asking for here… honestly, I’m curious if your type are capable of rational judgments.

    If I were signing such a letter, even with the gall to ask a staff member to apply my auto-pen signature, I would have at least asked for the signature to be “toned down.” It looks like (and it is) an autograph from a very proud and narcissist media-type person. Even as disgusting as using an auto-pen signature, the signature is not appropriate for the content and situation.

    What a slimy putz Obama is, surrounded by suck-up minions with very little understanding of the world around them. If 30 letters can’t deserve a personal and meaningful closing by Obama, I guess I know where the rest of us stand with this liberal, America-hating and gutless president.

    What is wrong with you people? You really need to reassess your life, all that hatred is going to really do your mental health harm.

    Look at the three documents that are side by side. Focus on the circle and the horizontal line in the middle. You can clearly see that in the first signature the line is pretty much in the middle. In the second signature it is slightly on the downside, on the third it is way on the upside on a badly drawn circle in comparison to the first two. If you can’t see this, is because you don’t want to see this. Nothing can be done to help any of you because it is clear that you don’t want to see this. That is why Obama will win in November, independents see this craziness and want no part of it.

    Legacy of Success! Page 89 –

    “…bin Laden had been under a form of house arrest for years in Pakistan – rarely seeing the light of day. His health and mental faculties had deteriorated significantly, and he longer led any terror groups or had anything to do with attacks. He was obsessed with creating his own persona and legacy – and ironically spent most of the day watching U.S. television stations.”

    “He was barely able to walk for more than a few minutes – and certainly wasn’t worried about U.S. forces seeing him out in the courtyard. U.S. Forces were hundreds of miles away and were not looking for anyone in the shadow of a large Pakistani Military Base complex and training Facility.”

    “I am glad the brave U.S. Special Forces were given the chance, and took out bin Laden. But let’s not lose sight of the fact that bin Laden was a feeble, mentally unstable, dying man… “

    I am not shocked. This is the sort of man we are dealing with. And I use the word “man” loosely. I am surprised and shocked Obama did not expect the parents to send him a letter thanking him for allowing their children the privilege of serving under such a brave and courageous commander-in-chief. What a pathetic excuse for a president!

  • SandMan

    Obama should not be blamed for sending autosigned form letters. To credit him with deciding a form letter would be good enough, he would have to have given the matter some thought in the first place. To this day he probably doesn’t know they were even sent. It would take a degree of selflessness he does not possess to reflect for even a moment on the concept of someone making the ultimate sacrifice in service of something bigger than himself. Trust me – the Exalted One’s mind does not function this way. If he thinks at all about those who stand ready to lay down their lives for others, it would be to consider them suckers or dangerous fanatics.

    “Why are you guys so anti-dictators? Imagine if America was a dictatorship. You could let 1 percent of the people have all the nation’s wealth. You could help your rich friends get richer by cutting their taxes and bailing them out when they gamble and lose. You could ignore the needs of the poor for health care and education. Your media would appear free, but would secretly be controlled by one person and his family. You could wiretap phones. You could torture foreign prisoners. You could have rigged elections. You could lie about why you go to war. You could fill your prisons with one particular racial group and no one would complain. You could use the media to scare the people into supporting policies that are against their interests.” -from the movie The Dictator

    Say what you want about Obama and his policies (I’m not a fan), but this story is bogus. Those may be a form letters (as all presidents have done), but even I can see from the scans those ARE NOT autopen signatures. They’re all different from each other. He did at least hand-sign these condolence letters (as he should).

  • Who’s surprised? Like Bill Clinton, he feels nothing but contempt for the US military. The average US military member likewise feels nothing but contempt for President Obama and overwhelmingly votes Republican, and the Dems know it. That’s why they try to suppress the military vote. I’m glad the tension between Democrat administrations and our military exists, because the Left would be the first to use the military to enforce a takeover of our government if they thought they could get away with it. In fairness to BHO, how could he be expected to compose and sign 30 letters to fallen soldiers when he has fund-raisers, tee times and White House musical extravaganzas to worry about?

    Not to be disrespectful to the president but he hasn’t even been able to get a budget started for the last three years.

    I can’t stand obama myself and would love for this to be the case, if only to show his arrogance and distaste for the military. However, when i was a younger man, i worked the Office of the Governor of the Great State of Ohio, and supervised the staff that handled the “autopen machine”, which signed numerous documents that the governor was unable to sign himself. So i know what it looks like when this is done. The top picture in the article shows one of the full signatures and one just the “obama” part. The “O”s are different, slightly, but different. That means it wasn’t done by an autopen machine. Honestly, the signatures would be EXACTLY the same if that was the case. So, i’d have to say, in this instance, these form letters were not autopenned. That doesn’t mean he actually signed them, though, and doesn’t excuse the fact that its a form letter which doesn’t even include at least a brief note from the man himself. Another good reason why former military types are better presidents, and more likely to use military force wisely, knowing the cost of lives which will be on their hands. I say: Mattis for President.

It will seem oh so easy, almost as if it was preordained.

    Obama letter is a thin parady of President Lincoln’s letter to Mrs. Bixby, 1864.

    Executive Mansion, Washington, November 21, 1864.

    Mrs. Bixby, Boston, Massachusetts:

    Dear Madam: I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

    Yours very sincerely and respectfully,

    Abraham Lincoln.

In today’s electronic world, to not have a personal letter within two weeks is disgusting. Oh, and by the way, he made sure to get in seven rounds of golf during this time span (http://obamagolfcounter.com/). In addition 57 soldiers died in combat during the time it took him to send out this feeble attempts at a condolence (http://icasualties.org/oef/Nationality.aspx?hndQry=US). AND if you are wondering… every day he golfed… at least one soldier died.

    I hope anyone who voted for this guy sees what a poor excuse for a President that he really is and casts their vote for real change this November!

    John T…. Are you STUPID? Did you read what I wrote? I am an independent and I WILL vote for what I think is best for this country. I tried to pull some fairness out of an endless series of Neandrathal responses, but ended up snagging a clueless putz like you! I fear for America. The rhetoric is depressing from both sides of the aisle! The left has bought into the media’s bias….. the right responds predictably with blinded knee jerk reactions. In the meantime, this collective “coalition of bumpkins” fails to realize how we have put into harm’s way, the true tresure of this nation. They are on the battle field (in our defense) while you all bait each other. Shame on us all! Our troops deserve better.

    And lets not forget that obamas people refuse to call American soldiers heros, if they had it their way they would call them war criminals like they did to our vets coming back from Vietnam, these are the same people that did that back then. I think they all need to be dropped off in a war zone and left there for a month and if they survive ask them if their opinion of our American heros has changed

  • DesertStormVet

    As A Vet that severed under President Clinton, I have come to understand that Democrats look at the military with a senses of disdain and contempt. Obama is no different. Our military is volunteers and they think for themselves. Clinton looked at the military as a tool that was expendable. Obama is the same. It isn’t because they hate them they just have no respect for them. They haven’t served on the front lines, they haven’t spent the night in a fox hole praying to get thru the night, they have never seen the suffering of the oppressed and abused. They Don’t understand the heart of a soldier. There is a verse in the bible that says “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life life for his friends.” (John 15:13) That is the heart of a volunteer solider and that is what Most Democrats don’t understand.

  • I totally agree with many of the comments. He sounds really detached from reality.

There just aren’t enoughj dumb people to do this again. It’s almost a contest of dumb vs smart. Who would you rather have invest your retirement money – Hussein or Mitt Romney? Who would you rather have balance your family budget- PAul Ryan or Dumbo the clown Biden? If you answer the two questions honestly you will vote for ROmney. If you lie to yourself, you will humiliate yourself and the country a second time.

    Not sure what everyone is expecting here. Remember even though you may loath the current president, there have been hundreds die in battle. I do not agree with his politics at all, but death being as tragic as it is for the few is just that, for the few. He runs the country and there are hundreds of thousands of Americans and way many more of those die each day for whatever the cause and those too are very tragic. It should not matter if it is in war or just everyday life when someone dies. The president does not have the time nor the resources to recognize each individual that dies with a personally signed letter to every parent. The letter is meant as a symbol of acknowledgement from the highest office in the land. Signature real or machine is of no difference because our president in more cases than not never ever actually met the person that has died. If it was indeed a true person that had met the president and spoken to them as a friend then yes that signature should be the real thing just out of respect.

    Like I said I do not like his politics, but these comments are way off base and we as parents of those that have died or friends of those that have lost loved ones should let the dead rest in peace and leave the polictical rederick out of this discussion. It is truly the right thing to do.

  • Beatdude

    THis is what any fallen soldier’s survivors gets. And it has been this way for decades. There are some special cases where a soldier may get a signature from the President’s pen on his desk. Not sure where the writer is trying to take this, but this is standard protocol. HUA!

  • tnmccoy

    Obama probably didn’t send them. He’d never have thought of doing it. Since they couldn’t find him—probably campaigning, on vacation, or on the golf course—his staff made up the letter and pen-signed them. “Callousness, thy name is Obama and Company.”

  • PJ 62

    I am retired military. Form letters are normal for condolences from the White House (regardless who is in charge). 30 military members being killed is a terrible tradegy but that is always a possibility for those of us who volunteered to defend our freedoms. These are the very freedoms that give you the right to write mindless comments on websites like this one. We have lost 4486 military members in Operation Iraqi Freedom and another 2000 in the war in Afghanistan. Those 30 casualties represent less than 1/2 percent of the total lives we have lost during these conflicts. My heartfelt prayers go out to each and everyone of the families that have lost loved ones. A coworker of mine lost his son in Afghanistan just this year. It was a devastating loss to all of us who knew this fine young man. Three other families also lost loved ones in the fire fight that claimed this young medic. It doesn’t matter whether the military member that sacrificed their life for our country was a cook, cop, technician, specialist, seaman, officer, enlisted, special forces, or transportation specialist, THEY ARE ALL HEROES.

  • Cribster

    At least he didn’t soil the form letter by touching it.

  • BarrysHypocrisy

    Of course these fallen soldiers families get a form letter signed by an auto-pen. Obama is too busy off fundraising to bother with something as trivial as dead heroes.

    Besides, the troops fighting overseas are an annoyance to Obama. He’s tired of trying to explain why he didn’t keep his campaign promise to bring them all home.

    At least Obama can take solace in the fact that the press and the rest of the liberals are giving him a complete pass on the dead soldiers. When Bush was President, there was a weekly body county announcement. But, I hasn’t been anything since Obama took office. I guess the liberals are OK with war and death as long as a democrat is the one who is ordering it.

  • truspeek

He couldn’t find Valerie Jarrett who makes all his decisions for him and actually signing a letter, be it a form letter or one actually dictated by him, takes making a decision so he let the computer do his work for him. heck, they were only military and mean nothing to him. Now if they were union members or donors to his re-cornination attempt it would have been different.
    This president cares nothing about the people, especially the military, unless it makes for a good photo-op so he thinks the adoring public will understand that he’s way too busy looking at his image in a mirror than doing the mundane efforts of being a real president.

    Why I Do Not Like The Obamas

    By Mychol Massie, an American who is also Black

    The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal not policy related. You even dissed their Christmas family pic.” The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation.

    I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

    I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

    I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.

    I expect, no I demand respect for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same.

    President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagans made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

    Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry and they display an animus for civility.

    I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able too be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

    Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites, because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.

    I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

    And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nauseum.

    He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He has fought for abortion procedures and opposed rulings that protected women and children, that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel.

    His wife treats being the First Lady, as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world).

    I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

    I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

    Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin, it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their playing the race.

    It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is one term. I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

    As I wrote in a syndicated column titled “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled.

    Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…

    Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

  • D Schwarz

    I can’t think of a clearer example that demonstrates where this man’s priorities are. His only regret is that someone noticed and pointed it out. He has plenty of time for fund raising, campaigning, golfing, meeting and White House parties, but no time to honor the fallen or their families. We need to vote this empty suit out in November and maybe Mitt can send him an electronic signed letter telling him to get his stuff out of the White House!

  • Carrie Whitcomb

    Maybe the person who ‘manufactured’ this letter from a movie, is the same person who ‘manufactured’ his fake birth certificate. Could it be that he hired a computer Czar who is in a backroom somewhere in the White House ‘manufacturing’ other goodies for the IMPOSTER in OUR Oval office, after all he seems to have a lot of unanswered questions that the voters need to get answers for. That Kenyan birth certificate does NOT qualify him to serve and he and Pelosi have opened themselves up to being charged with pulling the biggest scam ever on the voters in the United States of America. I would LOVE to see them duck walk this fraud out of the Oval Office in handcuffs with Pelosi, his partner in crime.

    WOW. SHAME ON YOU ALL!!!!! The racist, sexist, homophobic, and intolerant comments based on non-facts on this thread might be EXACTLY WHAT OBAMA IS FIGHTING AGAINST. You are as bigoted as the people you seek to “free” in Iraq and Afghanistan. Maybe it’s time to turn the tables in a country that is more focused on policing the world and getting into partisan political pissing matches than honoring those who have already died for the U.S., and working on a peaceful future to heal our own ills. He “hates the military”? REALLY!?? Maybe he doesn’t like people dying for a no-win cause…that is BY FAR the bigger tragedy than a LETTER not signed to your liking (Read PJ62s comments). Is our military not one of the most elite funded groups there is? Sure, he hates them SO much that he keeps delegating money to them, right??? The F-ING tough warrior military guy persona has GOT TO STOP, not in the least to honor those who died for it. Or would you have us be in an economic crisis for a few more terms as long as it meant we were militant conservatives? Maybe he could start another endless war that people could send their kids to get slaughtered in?? Start looking for your antichrist in the countries you want to “bring to democracy” and work on changing internally, so that you project democratic ideals externally, because right now, all you project is HATE and INTOLERANCE which is JUST AS BAD AS WHAT YOU THINK YOUR ENEMIES ARE DOING. If what you believe is democracy, I don’t want to be in the same country, let alone the same planet as y’all. Think about your kids before you spread this hatred and ignorance. THINK!!!

  • Josh, USAF

    While I did initially find it distasteful to send a form letter as such, the fact of the matter is that between Iraq & Afghanistan we have lost over 1400 American lives during the Obama administration. Although the incident in which these service members died was the largest, it does not make it any better or worse than the other casualties. If the parents of these SEALs deserved personalized hand written letters, so do the families of the truck drivers, MPs, infantrymen, intelligence personnel, and more who perished. All or none, but to single out this unfortunate event due to the size of the loss and not recognize the others downplays the sacrifice that the other service members who perished in the name freedom have made. Just my 2 cents. – Josh, MSgt, USAF, Op Joint Forge, Joint Guardian, Southern Watch, Enduring Freedom, and Enduring Freedom – Philippines vet.

    I look at this president and compare him to the last. While Bush wasn’t perfect, he had the decency to honor the military and their family. He gave up golfing because he didn’t want to be seen as having a good time while members of the military were in harms way. If this clown would have skipped one out of the hundreds of rounds he’s played since assuming his office, he would have time to sign all the letters personally.
    He’s quick to take credit for the success but will never fully appreciate the value of the military or their families.

    While form letters do make a recurrent sentiment less personal, it should be remembered that this practice is very old. The honor guards which are a ritual at the burials of service personnel vary little except for the name of the deceased. Such is the nature of uniformity and it is the acquired expectation of anyone who has undergone the discipline of basic training. The personal memories and remembrances of family members who grieve the loss of a loved one ought to be distinct and uniquely different and revered apart from the official duty of the necessarily rote acknowledgement by a commander and a commander-in-chief of a sacrifice made for the cause of national security.
    We live in a difficult time and sentiments are high concerning the failure of policies that have affected our lives negatively over the past several years. Politicizing this issue is really insensitive.

    Not only can I picture our President “Barry” as you call him, being in the military. If he had served, I bet he would have risen to the highest command!! A shame all you racists and fanatical people believe all the nonsense that’s out there. Even if someone were to prove to you beyond a doubt, that something is untrue, you still choose to believe it because of your blind hatred! Some of the comments here are frightening and very disturbing to me. One can disagree with the politics of others without this volatility.

    You are actually PRAISING George W. Bush for sending a personal letter to families of the 4,000 people who died in a war that he blatantly lied about to justify its start by making it sound like Saddam Hussein was connected to 9/11? How ignorant are you idiots on the right who glorify the man who started this mess and demean and mock the man who was left to clean it up? George W. Bush signed those letters out of GUILT! Obama did not start that war and was against it from the beginning. How is it “patriotic” to lie our military into war and “unpatriotic” to end that war and get those people out of harm’s way? The people who defend George W. Bush are just as despicable as he is. Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld and Rove should be in jail for life for what they have done to this country. You’re so dumb you are going to now believe that Romney and Ryan are going to be the “heroes” who are going to “save” Medicare when they are the ones who want to get rid of it altogether. Wise up, dummies. You have been duped by your lying American Taliban Republican Party.

    Hello America. I am Barrack Obama and I am the AWOL ‘president’ of the United States Of America. I and about two or three other people approve of my presidency, one of whom is my woman Large Barge Moochelle. I love myself and so should you. I hate the military. Why should I care about those who die in the defense of the very country that I am doing my level best to destroy. Screw them. I am Barack Obama. I have STACKS of those form, robo-signed letters at the ready to be sent out. All I need to do is have one of my White House welfare hos plug in the names of the next bunch of suckers who bag it on the field of battle still believing that I give a damn about this country or Americans in general. I am Barrack Hussein Obama and while I really do hate America, I approved this message because it is all about ME!

  • Louis Philippe

    Bunch of idiots… Parroting “Obama hates the military” just because your favorite a.m. radio talk show host said so. What evidence do you have of any of this hatred of the military? The Commander in Chief who is responsible for killing Osama Bin Laden (Yes , he is responsible and can take credit for this, the previous Commander in Chief said OBL was not a priority… or do you all choose to conveniently forget that fact?) Anwar al Alwaki, and a succession of 2nd and 3rd in command of AQ??? Under whose watch were more Taliban leaders killed or captured in one month than the previous commander in chief did in six years??
    Which commander in chief showed a real commitment to veterans and their families by initiating a new policy to promote federal hiring of military spouses, and who signed into law the Military Spouses Relief Act? Who donated 250K of his Nobel prize money to Fisher House (look it up if you don’t know what Fisher House does)?
    I can go on for pages on how this President demonstrated his commitment to the military and military families, but it will be discounted by the majority of you because you want to hold on to your irrational hatred of the man and your total disregard of facts.
    If you haven’t already written me off as some evil, brainwashed liberal, you should know that I am a chief warrant officer in the U.S. Army on active duty with 16 years of service, and a veteran. I do not consider myself a liberal (nor am I a conservative), but I have a brain, I know how to think critically, and I care about facts. There is already a lot not to like about President Obama; there is no need to dream up these idiotic reasons such as, “he hates the military” especially when these claims can’t be supported by facts.

    And by the way… wasn’t the previous Commander in Chief and his SefDef accused of doing the exact same thing? Ask yourself, were you as outraged at them as you are at Obama?

  • Johnson ,David S.

    Where do we find these young people who lay down their lives for freedom and so that others may live free.

    Romney has two sons that serve in the Corp and he will always be sure to honor those who give their lives, individually.

  • Brandon Kirk

    Some people may say, “what is the big deal?”. As long as they got a letter that is all that matters. But if he personally signed it it means that he at least took a second out of his day to recognize and to think about that ONE fallen soldier and his family for a brief moment. But he couldn’t even give them that.

  • James

    How about when a regular service member dies? Shouldn’t all deaths be personally signed? Why does the loss of a navy seal > an army or marine or air force members. Because more money was invested in that individual? Because he is more useful to the country’s war effort?

    This country is in dire need of leadership, something we haven’t had in almost 4 years. Our military needs more than form letters sent to the families of our fallen heroes and budget cuts. I am embarrased and angry to think this country elected someone who has so little concern for the individuals who protect our rights and freedom. These words from a die hard Democrat who is voting Republican for the first time in his life.

  • barry1817

    so how many were snowed by this man’s claim of expertise in dealing with such matters.

    But it reminds me of the elegance of Artur Davis, speaking at the republican conventions

    Now, America is a land of second chances, and I gather you have room for the estimated 6 million of us who know we got it wrong in 2008 and who want to fix it.

    Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greek columns and artificial smoke typically don’t end well.

    Maybe the Hollywood stars and the glamour blinded us a little: you thought it was the glare, some of us thought it was a halo.

    But in all seriousness, do you know why so many of us believed? We led with our hearts and our dreams that we could be more inclusive than America had ever been, and no candidate had ever spoken so beautifully.

    But dreams meet daybreak: the jobless know what I mean, so do the families who wonder how this Administration could wreck a recovery for three years and counting

  • warren

    oh and btw there IS variation in the signatures… Get off Barry’s nutts already.

  • eternalgreenknight

    I can’t stand Obama, but these types of letter are always auto-pen. It’s sad, but truthfully, the president cannot personally sign everything of grave importance- normally because they are busy running the country- in Obama’s case he’s been too busy golfing and campaigning- so since he has so much free time, he should have personally signed the letters.

    For the libs complaining about the war in Iraq- Saddam and his sons pulled girls out of school to rape them, then murder them when they were done being used. We put him in power, and we had a responsibility to remove him. We also recovered 500 tons of yellowcake (not the Duncan Hines variety). The reason we’ve had such a hard time with these wars is because the left has always opposed giving the troops the resources we need to get the job done and get out- so they could play politics when things didn’t go as well as planned! Playing with people’s lives for political points! It’s sick. I was there before the surge, when Obama and his cronies were saying how it shouldn’t happen. Well, it did, and it worked. Attacks dropped, and we stopped losing as many people… until we started drawing down again. To win, you have to crush the enemy with overwhelming force- not get bogged down trying to be PC.

  • JW

  • David Thomas

    I have looked at the comments on this matter. I am repulsed by the overarching theme of pure, unadulterated hatred expressed in most of the postings. I am afraid that this will tear our nation apart and cause us all irreparable damage.

  • People – WAIT for the entire story – Obama is not one to talk about making things up!

    Since my book was in print on Amazon before the SEAL story broke about bin Laden’s health – My book validates the SEAL account. TO THE TEE!

    Unless one of us has a Time Machine!

    How dare anyone question the SEALS account?

    Legacy of Success! Page 89 –

    “…bin Laden had been under a form of house arrest for years in Pakistan – rarely seeing the light of day. His health and mental faculties had deteriorated significantly, and he longer led any terror groups or had anything to do with attacks. He was obsessed with creating his own persona and legacy – and ironically spent most of the day watching U.S. television stations.

    He was barely able to walk for more than a few minutes – and certainly wasn’t worried about U.S. forces seeing him out in the courtyard. U.S. Forces were hundreds of miles away and were not looking for anyone in the shadow of a large Pakistani Military Base complex and training Facility.”

    “I am glad the brave U.S. Special Forces were given the chance, and took out bin Laden. But let’s not lose sight of the fact that bin Laden was a feeble, mentally unstable, dying man… ”

    So unless the entire team at Amazon or legacyofsuccessbook website are all part of some conspiracy…

    The SEALs are accurate – Obama is not!

    There is SO MUCH MORE to this story!

    You may hate Bush, but he took the time to invite grieving families to the White House, without cameras or press, and met with each of them personally. He STILL takes the time to visit grieving families, from what I hear … and he does all of this without any press or cameras present.

  • C. Calvano

    Dear Epe: See post #244. Auto pens write after someone has put the paper in place. The paper is not always in exactly the same place, so some difference in placement of the signature occurs. Also, as #244 explains, they are purposely built to inject small differences in the signature.

    Thirty letters is not a large number. I have, on a number of occasions, signed 200 or more letters one right after the other. Takes about an hour — or a bit more. Certainly 30 letters could be signed in a reasonably short time, even if he had to delay his golf date.

  • JIM

THANK GOD, HE WAS NOT MY COMMANDER- IN- CHIEF WHEN I WAS IN THE KOREAN WAR!

  • SFC J. Simmons, US Army, Retired

    When the Left disrespects the Military, it is never a surprise to me. They have no concept of the love of country and devotion to duty that the men and women of the US Armed Forces truly feel and honor. Most of them are quite certain that the only reason we join in the first place is either so we can kill people or for the money.

    Bill Clinton “loathed” the military. He allowed the slaughter of Army Rangers in Somalia because he was too busy alone with Monica to give the order to roll tanks. He chose to invade Kosovo during his impeachment to draw attention away from it. Obama tried to destroy our health care plan within less than a month of being in office. He has recklessly cut the Defense Budget during a time of war. He puts the screws to the military every chance he gets.

    I’m sure the only reason he even bothers having letters sent to the families of fallen soldiers is simply to avoid the criticizism he would face for not doing it. I really doubt he ever sees any of the letters sent to the families. It’s just another job, left to some flunky sitting at a desk.

    President B.O. doesn’t have time to personally sign letters for our fallen soldiers. It cuts too deeply into his golf playing time. Currently, the man has played 104 rounds of golf – that’s over 3 months of his presidency spent just on golf alone. And when you take into account all the taxpayer funded vacations he and his family are taking and all the music & celebrity parties at the White House every Wednesday night, he simply doesn’t have time to fritter away signing condolence letters for 30 fallen soldiers. That would take what? – at least 5 minutes of his valuable party time.

  • Adam McGregor

    Balance and objectivity, please. There is no first hand evidence for accusations of narcissism that can medically confirmed about Barack Obama.

    The only firm conclusion that can be drawn from the reports about the electronic pen signed letters is that someone crafted the letters as a block set and some bureaucrat signed the letters for the man, which is standard practice for a per-functionary proforma protocol necessity. The man, Obama, did not see the need to intervene and personally handle what to him was just routine event paperwork.

    That FACT should be damning enough for anyone about the man and the way he runs his business affairs without any ad-hoc unsubstantiated accusations about his personal character. It goes directly to a demonstrated lack of personal management skills, a sense of proportionate political acumen, and directly to perceived competence.

    Thing I like is how people say he’s a likeable guy. How would you like a neighbor who, while you’re scrapping to make the rent, talks about his last vacation and his next vacation? How would you like a guy who, when you lose your job and take two that don’t pay half what the old one did, complains that he can’t seem to break 80 on the golf course? How would you like a guy, while you’re trying to build a business that you just hope the government doesn’t try to shut down because that’s what they do, tells you you didn’t build that? How would you like a guy in the neighborhood who gives out free stuff so people will like him after all that, when you just happen to know that the free stuff was paid for by you and your friends? Real likeable guy. I sure need a neighbor like that.

    The whole Bin Laden assassination was a total hoax. He’s been dead for a long time. He had kidney failure and was on dialysis in 2000 when the CIA met with him.

    When Obamo was running for the Oval Office 2008 would not put a flag on his lapel. Poo poo it. On with the pin when he needed a PR boost. Mechelle said she had never been proud of her country. Opps ..So they hid her. The Ft Hood Massacures by the Muslim terrorist was called a work place disruption. Those soldiers were denied purple hearts.. yet they were murdered and injured by the same terrorist that is killing our young people in Afganistan, IRaq… could it be that this president is blind when the terrorist is a Muslim. This PResident could not give the OK for the Raid on B. Laden…. because the Commander in Chief… Valerie Jarrett said NO. It might end poorly for Obamo. Finally they had to, because too many knew he could get Binladen…. Then they happily give out secrets of this country for a film to glorify Obamo. Putting the lives of thousands in danger. When the helicopter crashed a while later carrying Seals… Obamo shows up when their bodies were returned. The families said no Pix. But Obama can’t seem to help himself…. PR pix of him saluting the coffins of the bodies of those young people… The Military is nothing but a captive audience there to look like they support them and garner votes. All the while he is cutting their number, their health benefits and their safety and our safety. Every time he bops up Air Force ! it is $1M OUT OF OUR POCKETS.. EVERYTIME HE BOPS DOWN THOSE SAME STEPS ANOTHER MILLION.. at the minimum.

    No. The simple matter is form letters to service member families is nothing new unfortunately. While I agree that they deserve much more, this is NOT a new thing. And you are wrong to vilify Obama for it. Vilify him for any other reason you want, but in this, he is NOT alone.

    As much as these parents deserve a real letter, it is unreasonable to ask one man to do every one of them, and it is insane to think he would have any more to say than what the form letter says. How would anyone in the white house be expected to come up with letters about someone’s specific child when they didn’t even know them? I would hope their commanders and colleagues who know their sons would send their own letters – I’m sure that those letters would mean a lot more anyway.

    I do question the “electric pen” accusation of these letters though – the signatures are not *exactly* alike. If you look at them, one of them has the, I’m going to call it “t”, where the dash comes into the O differently.

Sarah Palin isn’t in this race and won’t be at the RNC because too many people now know the truth.

    Why am I not surprised. He does’nt even know the letters were sent! I bet that on my life. Some low level secretary at the pentigon was asked to do the task. Shove them into envelopes and seal them, then taking them to the mail room. The White House is not a place of honor in my mind. A socialist lives there and it is going to be another four years of the same stuff. The sheep love him and will ensure he does another term. Sad, so sad!

YOU LIBS ARE ALL THE SAME….YOU BASH BUSH ON A DAILY BASIS AS BEING A MESS-CREATING IDIOT, AND THEN, WHEN IT’S CONVENIENT, YOU SAY: “WELL, BUSH DID IT.” WHAT A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES! It would be a different thing if this clown wasn’t on the golf course every hour…If he can do nothing but ride around on vacation, he can sure as hell find time to sign 30 damn letters…No–form letters are nothing new to BUSY Presidents–what I don’t understand is why this guy couldn’t find a pen in his golf cart–then again, he probably doesn’t keep an honest score on that, either!

    It may be true that the redaction is to protect privacy. Or, this may be more in the nature of an Obama-hating hoax.

    “It just wouldn’t happen.”

    Actually it did. Just not with Obama.

    President Bush (W) wrote every fallen US service member’s family a HAND WRITTEN LETTER personally. Thousands of them. This was not the same as the DOD letter that Rummy got in some heat for using an AutoPen. President Bush also spent many hours with the families of the fallen and injured personnel. He maintains it was one of the hardest things of his presidency to do, but considered it a duty.

  • Well I am sure these are pretty generic, and don’t doubt they were automatic. If you actually look at the signatures you can see that there is at least 1 variation in the top of the O between 2 of them. Surely they deserved better, but I didn’t see anyone not this difference. Perhaps he actually did sign them, I don’t care, but jumping to conclusions without ample proof isn’t very idyllic of America either. Doesn’t have a soul? Articles like this are successful because of the emotion you allow it to stir up causing you to write dumb ass-umptions, voiding you of intellectualism. Would a hand written letter reanimate your lost loved ones, or just fetch a better eBay selling price? Politics are brain-numbing, primarily composed of blind followers unable to form their own educated opinion that merely cheer on “their” team. Both teams are bankrupting America, both teams will work together and sell you out long before they take pay cuts or cut spending anywhere.

  • Maybe the president should hand write a letter to everyone who got a real job instead of getting fed by the govt and fueling many of our problems. Signing up for military service, is a disservice to yourself and the country. We aren’t protecting America, we’re pretending to. It only causes more deaths, more debts, more dependence. Where did the soldiers die? Not in America, so clearly they weren’t defending us. If anything America is more susceptible to attack because our troops are busy trying to solve other countries battles away from home. Really just a bunch of lobbying oil tycoons, and other rich arms makers are benefiting off of this all while bankrupting America. This is only possible because of non-thinkers that sign up for military checks. Maybe the president should hand write letters to all the families of people that died in normal car crashes daily that were just trying to go to work and live a respectable life while actually raising the GDP and sustainably stimulating the economy in various ways.

  • As the President of the USA Obama has received the “political appointment” also as the Commander-In-Chief of all USA military forces. How can anyone be a “commander” of anything without any personal experience.

    Obama doesn’t have a clue to what serving your country in a hostile environment means. HIs “form letter” proves my point. I guess he couldn’t take the time away from the golf course or political soapbox to write a personal letter or even sign one.

    This is not a good thing, but it’s better than censoring footage of US caskets returning to the homeland, as Bush/Cheney did. They worked hard for us all not to notice. And please remember who basically ignored this war in favor of the “much more pressing” (not!) Iraq war for 5 years, from 2003 to 2008. Remember how much money we spent there when we could have focused on securing Afghanistan?

    And who dishonored and censored the hero and war-objector Pat Tillman? Let’s not call a president “soulless” because of form-letters. It’s not the first time, and there are far worse offenses to worry about.

    Active military give Obama nearly a 40% approval rating, (http://scaredmonkeys.com/2011/05/30/gallup-poll-us-military-veterans-currently-active-military-duty-give-president-obama-low-job-approval-marks/) almost as high as his general approval rating.

    The current resident of the White House (I just can’t force myself to call him by the title that he claims) is “brave” enough to send men into harms way. He is “patriotic” enough to take credit for the elimination of Osama. The mainstream media fawn over him, but the truth is that he is sneaky policrook that is despicable enough to send out form letters to the families of dead HEROS. Being a bum is not a crime, and can’t be punished. On the other hand, it shouldn’t be rewarded by his remaining in the White House.

    If Clint Eastwood got on stage tonight and said the following, the election would be over:

    I spoke to a mother of Navy Seal Aaron Vaughn today. Aaron was killed long with 29 other soldiers when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan on ______. Aaron’s mother and father, Karen and Billy Vaughn, showed me a letter of condolence from President Obama dated _____. It apparently was a form letter and the identical letter was sent to the parents of the other 29 service members killed that day in the service of their country. The biggest thing on that form letter is President Obama’s signature. I am told that it is not really his signature, but an auto signature. I also am told that on the [day/week/month] of those letters, the president played golf ___ times. Before I talked to Mr. and Mrs. Vaughn about their son today, I had concluded that I would vote for Mitt Romney as the better person to lead our country. But let me tell you, if it is true that the best President Obama could do for the parents of these 30 heroes was to have someone send a form letter with an auto signature while he played golf, I do not believe that man is worthy to be president.

    Obama sees American soldiers as agents of racism, imperialism and oppression. If you want to know what Obama really thinks, read Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright. Classic hate America marxists, “black liberation theology”, etc. That’s why he keeps saying and doing strange things and making embarrassing slip ups. They are not “slip ups”, they are his true self briefly appearing from behind the mask. Every night he and Bill Ayers probably confer by phone, and Ayers tells him what lies to tell and how to act during certain ceremonies, so he’ll appear like a “normal” American. Obama has no idea how ordinary Americans think.

  • Mik

    Just a fore note: I am totally against Obama, his wife and what they have done to our country. I also believe concerns of a president being improper should be valid and factual. Looking at the “Facts” and the Signatures, the parents who are hurting and morning and a conspiratorial author missed the boat on this one.

    There are just so many ways for leaders to say – I am sorry for your son/daughters loss of life due to his/her service to the country. I am a former military officer and I know it would never be a verbose letter. So since all died in the same way from the same event – then one letter with different names added would be appropriate.

    Looking at the signatures now – though they do look similar especially at first glance – once you begin to inspect the fine details you can tell that each one is different. In the first White letter the “O” is slightly squishier than the 2nd White letter. The yellow letter has many differences: The open “O” and the slanted line at the end of his last name plus the drop off. These were very poor quality scans so I could not view more. I used to do a lot of small detailed work and cleanup work (down to the pixel) so am very skilled at seeing these small nuances.
    BO has so many real mistakes – let’s not make them up where they don’t really exist – it makes us look like a Democrat 🙂

    Obama and his administration is at least partly responsible for the deaths of the Navy Seals shot down in the helicopter. They leaked the fact that it was Seal Team Six that took down Bin Laden, so that helicopter was targeted for revenge.

    It is not that Obama actions are heartless or misplaced. The sad fact is that President Obama cannot help himself. This is him. His dismissive attitude to the military is natural to his nature and his personal respect to one of his own race, a rapper at that, again comes from his soul. Can anyone imagine if he wins the elections and is really and truly free to do what he wants from his cold heart in the last four years of his presidency? His actions may outdo that of Pol Pot.

    I do not believe that the Navy Seals who lost their lives in service to this country would focus on how a letter was printed or signed. These men were about higher matters, much higher matters. They gave their lives to lessen hatred and racism in another part of the world. I do not believe that the Seals would approve of using their deaths to fan the flames of hatred and racism within their own country. President Obama made a trip to Dover Air Force Base to receive the remains and honor these soldiers. Why not focus on this (instead of a letter about which we might not know all the facts)–and allow our soldiers to rest in peace?

    People on this site should be smart enough to know that if former President GW Bush had finished the war in Afghanistan and not attacked Iraq under false pretenses then there would have been neither dead Seals, nor thousands of other dead and injured service personnel.

    Because of the trumped up war in Iraq GW Bush used the reserves as regular army, and even with the extra personnel most of them endured multiple deployments that destroyed many marriages, families, and nerves of all involved; and all of it based on WMD lies.

    We also know who profited by the many NO BID contracts handed out to VP Dick Cheney’s Halliburton and other friends of Bush.

    I have never had an ounce of faith in President Obama’s qualifications to be Commander in Chief. His lack of experience wreaks of the first affirmative action President. However, I respect our democracy and he was elected fairly and he is the POTUS. He is my Commander in Chief, albeit hopefully for a only brief period of time, but I just can’t find a reason for him not to sit down for a few hours in the mansion we pay for or the 747 we pay for and take the time to write a personal note to the parent’s of 17 American heroes who gave their lives for this Nation. I would more fiercely criticize him if I felt he knew what he was doing and how insensitive was his lack of concern. He is an actor and his emotional depth and intelligence is a mile wide and an inch deep. To the parents of the 17 Seals and all other fallen service men and women, the citizens of this country pray for you and keep you in our hearts and thoughts always. Semper Fi!

  • As a recent infantry veteran myself, I am saddened by the callousness of this administration. I should say “surprised”, but strangely I am not. This administration has been 100% false and disengenuous in every thing it has done and this is but one part of it. I thought Clinton was bad…but this guy takes the cake. The sad thing is, his opponent Mitt Romney is no more honest than the current POTUS. As he has repeatedly lied about his record in Massechusetts and pulls the “anti-Mormon” card whenever the facts are invoked, we out here in the cheap seats are told to shut up and hold our noses and “choose the lesser of two evils” and tolerate wicked men who are willing to sloganeer and tell the American people whatever they think they want to hear in order to gain power. I say “NO WAY”! As a Christian, I understand that no matter who gets put in office, God’s righteousness will stand and that this world is only going to get worse and worse until Christ returns. As the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah proclaimed 2600 years ago:

    5 Thus says the Lord:

    “Cursed is the man who trusts in man
    And makes flesh his strength,
    Whose heart departs from the Lord.
    6 For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,
    And shall not see when good comes,
    But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
    In a salt land which is not inhabited.

    7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
    And whose hope is the Lord.
    8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
    Which spreads out its roots by the river,
    And will not fear[a] when heat comes;
    But its leaf will be green,
    And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
    Nor will cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:5-8)

    Call me a kook or whatever you like, but I’m finished putting my hope in politics and liars who masquerade as public servants and instead focus on God and His righteousness.

  • What bothers me most about this, is the fact that the “MAINSTREAM” media will COMPLETELY IGNORE THIS STORY, AND that MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of Americans will VOTE FOR Mr. Obama again.

    The President and his wife show continual contempt for our country, its cherished values, middle class families, faith (and especially the Christian faith) and all the things we hold dear. Now he has dishonored the dead. In my profession, I have personally written very similar (basically the same) letters of sympathy/ condolence to families of the fallen. When one writes such a letter, it is ALWAYS done with utmost sobriety. This action is the latest slap in the face to America’s heroes. And yes, Mr. and Mrs. Obama, we will die for a “damm flag,” and the freedom it represents (or at least used to represent).

  • To all our servicemen, servicewomen, and their families I salute your courage and sacrifices in
    defense of our wonderful country America. Thank you for all you do.

    “May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you: May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you (pick you out of a crowd), and
    give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

    For all Americans: please go see the movie “2016: Obama’s America.” The film examines the question: If Obama wins a second term, what are Obama’s dreams for America; are they “Dreams from my Father??”

    After seeing the movie my husband and I understand why Obama returned the bust of
    Winston Churchill (given to the American people/White House) to our good ally England.
    Many of his other actions/statements now make sense. America’s presidential (and vice-
    presidential) candidates should be vetted fully so we understand their philosophies before
    the election. Obviously, we disagree with Obama’s ideology; but now we understand it.

Secondly it is IMPOSSIBLE to determine it is an autopen signature without matching exemplars. And an sutopen will sign each signature exactly the same. Look carefully. CAREFULLY!

    Most of your commenters are hilariously biased. It’s ridiculous to watch you complain about things Obama does when the republican presidents (most recently Bush) who I am willing to wager most of you supported and praised as a great president did the same thing.

    Other commenters have pointed out – All military personnel killed since Vietnam have received the same letter signed by Autopen. If Obama is a hate-filled monster who takes way too much time off because he goes golfing and had these form letters signed by autopen, then George Bush and Ronald Reagan are even worse. They sent the same letters, and this is a comparison of their vacation days:
    http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-18563_162-20093801.html
    “So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.”

    So Obama had taken a third less vacation at that point in his presidency than Bush had. I guess Obama is just a lazy ass though, and Bush is the best president we’ve ever had.

    It is disgusting how people bash members of other parties who have done nothing wrong with baseless critisicms that apply equally to their own candidates. I also feel bad for some of you people like commenter #13 who seems to think that because Obama’s kids are all girls, he’s gay or has a small “manhood”. Coming from a commenter who doesn’t even understand basic biology, I’m sure the President is very hurt by that comment.

He sounds like a dog that someone kicked, ” I-I-I-I-I-I-I ” Concepts such as duty, honor, country are foreign to him. They are just words, not something deep down in his soul. The only thing that he seems to believe in is his accumulation of power. He wants more. And then, there’s Michelle. She’s never been proud of our country until they ascended to my White House. What about the marches on Selma? George W. Carver? Booker T. Washington? The Tuskegee Airmen? Col. Robert G. Shaw’s regiment in the Civil War? Apollo 11-17? Skylab? The Space Shuttle? The Peace Corps? I could go on and on, but it’s obvious, at least to me, that it’s not about pride. It’s about class. You want class? How about former Secretary of State Rice? Her speech oozed class. Michelle is an angry woman. Everything revolves around her and Barack and how much power they can grab. I’d like to say that I feel sorry for them. But, that would be a lie.

    The auto pen was NOT used for these types of letters!

    I had the distinct privilege of meeting and getting to know Aaron and Kimberly Vaughn when they were in the early stages of planning to build a new home in Virginia Beach. It was during this time that I learned that Aaron was a member of the elite Seal Team 6. Tragically, I learned sometime later that Aaron had become one of the many Seal Team 6 members who lost their lives in service to our country when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan.

    I learned in today’s news that President Obama acknowledged the loss of Aaron’s life and those of the other heroic members of Seal Team 6 by sending the parents of each a standard form letter signed by a signature machine rather than by our President himself. In that these are some of the very same men who provided President Obama some helpful assistance with his own heroic murder of Osama Bin Laden, one would think that our President would be so grateful as to be able to find a few minutes of his precious time to actually express a personal message to these parents, accompanied by an authentic signature. But no: our President did not have time in his day for such an act of genuine human kindness.

    If you are considering voting for this man for a second term of office, may I ask you to consider how it would be for you to lose your son in service to your country in the way in which Aaron’s parents and his wonderful wife Kimberly did, only to have your loss recognized in such a cold and inauthentic manner by his Commander in Chief.

What does it mean when a Republican President sends a condolence letter with [oh, mercy!] an electric signature? Probably something much different than when President Obama does it. How about some outrage for the propensity of our country to get into shooting wars that are not vital to our national security? That’s probably a question that would require thought to answer. Not just a knee jerk reaction.

    If the signitures were done in ink one of the parents would sell it. I would almost assure you of that. Oh and one more thing… OBAMA 2012. If you dont like it gtfo of america haters.

    Is there any follow up on this to prove it’s an autopen? (Please don’t say ‘just look at the pictures, of course it’s an autopen.’ The White House has said in response all such letters are signed by the president. This is worth having an expert examine,

    I am not a handwriting expert but it is quite obvious that the signatures on the three letters shown are all different. Wouldn’t autopenned signatures be identical?

    The title of this article seems intended to invoke anger and hatred–“Obama Honored Fallen SEALs By Sending Their Parents a Form Letter Signed by Electric Pen.” In reality, this is NOT how President Obama HONORED the fallen SEALs. The letter plainly states that “A single letter cannot erase the pain of losing a child . . . .” President Obama honored the fallen soldiers by receiving their remains at Dover Air Force Base. There was time for prayer, and President Obama met with the grieving families. For more information please see: “At Dover, Obama honors troops killed in crash,” by Ben Feller, The Associated Press, in ArmyTimes.

    Here is an excerpt from that article:

    The country didn’t see it.

    There will be no lasting, gripping images this time of Obama assuming his office’s grimmest role. No family could give permission for media coverage, the military said, because no individual bodies had been identified yet.

    I can understand the anger of Mrs. Vaugh about the sympathy letter that is a form letter and might be signed with an autopen. Anger is often a stage in the grieving process. When Mrs. Vaughn is better able to accept her loss, her anger may lessen. She might even regret her actions at this time. (Members of the other families do not seem to be expressing such anger.)

    But, I cannot understand the anger evident within so many of these posts. Our brave soldiers are willing to risk their lives for their country. Most of them would not want their deaths to motivate anger and hatred within their own country. Fortunately, these 500 or so angry posts are so few when compared to the general population of our country.

    I thank the SEALs for their service and their sacrifice–and pray that they rest in peace.

    I think some people are missing the point.

    It is clear from this book–just as it was from the Swift Boat Veterens–that even before the killing of Bin Laden the Navy Seals were not particularly enamored of Barack Obama.

    It would be highly improbable that this lack of affection for their Commander in Chief was isolated to this particular unit.

    Who likes it when someone seems to be taking the lion’s share of responsibility for the heroic act of another?

    I don’t recall JFK uttering a word on his own behalf when Alan Shepherd was launched into space. There was no, “I promised you we would have a man on the moon in 10 years and as you can see, we are on our way.” Nor did Nixon in any way attempt to usurp the glory of Neil Armstrong and the crew of Apollo 11.

    You can look through history books until your eyes are crossed and you will not hear Eisenhower give him self props as the architect of the Normandy Invasion, Churchill discussing how difficult it was as Great Britain’s prime minister to send pilots into the air for the Battle of Britain, or Truman publicly or through surrogates touting his decision to use atomic weapons on Japan. This is pretty much all he said:

    “My fellow Americans, the British, Chinese and United States governments have given the Japanese people adequate warning of what is in store for them. The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. If Japan does not surrender, bombs will have to be dropped on her war industries and unfortunately thousands of civilian lives will be lost. I urge Japanese civilians to leave industrial cities immediately and save themselves.”

    Obama and his incompetant advisors have so obviously used Bin Laden’s death as proof of his Alpha Male presidential qualities.

    A tough decision?

    Nonsense.

    The Normandy invasion was a hellacious call as was using the A-bomb. This was a no-brainer given the intelligence and the planning that went into it.

    The anger of the parents has less to do with the letter, however it was signed, than a man magnifying the importance he played in an operation that put nothing more for him at risk–possibly–than a second term.

    To: Mr. John Carpenter

    You say that “The anger of the parentS has less to do with the letter, however it was signed, than a man magnifying the importance he played in an operation that put nothing more for him at risk-possibly-than a second term.”

    What parentS (plural) are you referring to? As far as I can tell there is ONE set of parents who are expressing their anger about the letter.

    I don’t know what book you are referring to either since I could not find where you referred to it by name. But, I don’t think you should claim that the Navy SEALs have no respect for their commander-in-chief, President Obama. I do not believe that you are authorized to speak on behalf of the Navy SEALs. This, sir, is going much too far.

    In regard to the bin Laden raid, you should know that President Obama visited Navy SEAL, Team 6, afterwards to express his thanks. Vice President Biden was in attendance as well. President Obama commented “We’re still the AMERICA that does the hard things, that does the great things.” President Obama did not refer to himself, taking credit for the raid. President Obama awarded Team 6 Presidential Unit Citations–a very high honor.

    Mr. Carpenter, I live in the state where Navy SEAL, Team 6, is anchored (we are so proud of them). From all accounts, President Obama’s meeting with the SEALs and his speech for the entire military base was well received.

    President Obama deserves SOME credit for the bin Laden raid. After all, President Obama reversed Bush policy not to pursue terrorists into Pakistan. President Obama and his staff carefully monitored the intelligence until they had a fix on bin Laden. (President Obama never said that he was no longer looking for bin Laden as did President Bush. President Obama did not give up on this matter). In the end, President Obama and his staff determined when and where. We should all just be glad that bin Laden was brought to justice rather than being angry that an African-American President set the raid in motion.

    Finally, since you mention the “swift boating veterans,” I think I know where you are coming from–and it is not a very pretty place. The swift boaters, in the end, did not have a very good reputation for fairness and accuracy.

    You might do well to read: “Obama meets bin Laden raiders, promises victory over al Qaeda” by CNN Wire Staff, May 6, 2011.

    I didn’t know auto pens could make each signature unique like they are on each of these letters

  • I’m extremely inspired with your writing abilities and also with the format to your weblog. Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it yourself? Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it’s rare
    to peer a great blog like this one nowadays..

    Please note that these signatures vary too much to be an autopen signature.

    Consider the center letter in the image labeled (on hover) as “letter 1” – the letter to Mr Billy C Vaughn Jr. The O in Obama has a visible loop / gap at the top of the letter, the vertical stroke of the ‘b’ has a visible hook on the top, and it reaches the O again at the bottom of the stroke.

    Then, look at the signature of the letter labeled “letter three”. The top of the O has no loop/gap, the top of the vertical of the ‘b’ has no hook, and the bottom of the stroke does not reach the lower portion of the O.

    The letter is a form letter, clearly, which is not a surprise when writing thousands of letters, but the signature is not an autopen – it is a human signature, the signature of President Obama.

  • MICHAEL MCINTOSH

    Ummmm…those signatures are different.
