Ultimate Sacrifice Earns Ultimate Snub from President

Imagine, folks, if George W. Bush sent fallen soldiers' families, especially Navy SEALS, who have been the edge of the spear for the last 12 years, condolence letters that were simply form letters with autopen signatures. You would hear the media screaming about how he really didn't care about the families, about how he just viewed the military as tools for taking back his Daddy's failures in Iraq, etc... But, where except on WMD and Drudge and Gateway Pundit do you hear that IN FACT we have a President in Barack Obama who is sending form letters with autopen signatures to the families of the best and brightest who have given the last full measure of their devotion under his command?

From Gateway Pundit:
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.

But, as the post notes, His The Oneness did take time out from golfing and campaigning and stealing from Medicare to write the family of rapper Heavy D a letter of condolence when he passed away....

So at least he has some priorites....just the wrong damn ones!
