Citizens Outraged! President Obama Fuels Condolence Controversy

| August 31, 2012 | 0 Comments

Citizens are outraged claiming President Obama demonstrated “disdain” for the U.S. Military. Our 44th president sent form letters honoring fallen heroes signed with an auto-pen to the families of 17 Navy SEALs. These  families were among 30 U.S. service members killed when a helicopter crashed transporting them into Afghanistan last year in August.

Form Letters sent to the families of 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs.

So, why are citizens outraged? Apparently Obama’s priorities are in question. During the “heartfelt” death of rap superstar Heavy D last November, the president issued a personal letter to Jamaican-born rapper. Ouch! According to the Associated Press, the personal letter was read by Rev. Al Sharpton at Heavy D’s funeral service. What’s the big deal you might ask? We suppose some people are just pulling straws against the president.

“We extend our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time…He will be remembered for his infectious optimism and many contributions to American music. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.”
