“I have a bracelet, too, it’s right here on my wrist, I’ll never forget the sacred memory of good old what’s-his-name." *-- David Kahane, on Barack Obama's winning debate performance, for the National Review.
*The soldier's parents have asked Barack Obama not to wear the bracelet any longer.

As is usually the case with most political stories (from both sides) the truth seems to be more complicated than that.
From ABC News Senior National Correspondent Jake Tapper's Sept. 28 blog entry:
"Based on comments the mother of the family gave to the Associated Press today, however, the notion that Obama is wearing the hero bracelet against the wishes of the family -- or more specifically, the mother, who gave him the bracelet -- is more complicated that it first seemed. She did ask Obama to stop mentioning her son on the stump, but she approved of the way Obama invoked her son in the debate."
Thanks for that. I appreciate the correction.ReplyDelete
