So Obama has time to hand write a personal letter of condolence to the dead rapper Heavy D's family, but he sent approximately 17 or more "Form Letters" to the families of the dead SEALs (see link to topic on ATS below) killed in Afghanistan in August of 2011. I can't seem to help but to think that Obama is really what some are saying about his loyalty to the black folks in America.
As a Veteran of this country, this makes me absolutely sick. This guy is exactly what I thought he was. Sad, very sad indeed.

Who cares?

Would you hand-write a letter to the family of someone you respected?

Would you hand-write a letter to the families of every soldier killed by friendly fire and operator error?

The tradition of sending form letters to fallen soldiers families has been in place for many presidencies.

From NEWSWEEK, 12/5/03:
www.msnbc.com...
The article is old so the link does not work, but you can find the text online (and plenty of references to the article)


Sympathy Forms

Bush famously refuses to attend GIs’ funerals. But couldn’t he send something more personal to grieving families?

NEWSWEEK WEB EXCLUSIVE

They point out that Bush is "writing" letters to each of the soldiers’ families instead of going to the services. So I asked some families about the sympathy letters they had received. I assumed that they were in the Bush family style. Both his father and his mother come from a generation of note writers. His mother’s Christmas list is notoriously long and his father is

This Bush has followed suit, often using his thick Sharpie to pen short notes to friends, foes and fund-raisers. But those are not the letters Bush is "writing." They are form letters.

With the exception of the salutation and a reference to the fallen soldier in the text, the letters the families shared with me are all the same. Now some one has gone to the trouble of finding out if the given name of the solider and the name he or she used were different.

a form letter is o.k. if it expresses the sentiment you wish to convey and you wrote it, but not personally signing it is inexcusable.

at least if he hand signed it, the family will know that you read the letter and it was in your hand.

???

Shouldn't the Commander in Chief respect those who gave their lives in service, as well as a rapper he admired?

And I can't help but thinking that the anti-Obama fervor is really what some are saying about the right's tendency toward racism.

If the musician were white, you wouldn't be able to make your silly accusation.

Do you know if any of the SEALS were black? If he had hand-written letters to them, while sending form letters to the white ones, THEN you could cry racism.

I swear, more on the right play the race card than the left ever could!

Sure, but can you come up with 5,000+ ways to say "your son/daughter was killed in action"? With just a basic bio to reference, just how unique does one expect these letters to be?

They SHOULD say "your son served their bloodthirsty masters well by perpetuating the war machine and ultimately being blown in half by a civilian he had just armed. Can you possibly birth any more disposable heroes for our oil grabbing campaign? Best Wishes -- Halliburton"

OK, so the WH probably bought two or more rubber signature stamps to mix things up a bit. Next point LOL.

I got a chuckle out of your reply.

Of course, it would be impossible to hand write all of those letters.

Military always get form letters. This is just meant to rile people up who know nothing about the military. Why should seal families be any different from any other soldier in the field?

Although this may be the case, I reserve the right to laugh at the inanity of a form letter for those who have served and fallen, and a personalized letter for a rapper.

It's been that way since WW! and where's the proof that he even wrote the letter to the rapper? Any why hasn't this thread been closed when there already is a thread on it?

"true racist see racism everywhere"

heavy D died obama liked his music so he sends his condolences handwritten no less...

Seal team members along with over 3500 troops have died overseas since 9/11 on bush's then Obama's orders and what exactly do they get? a pre-written letter copy and pasted, but they have been doing this since WW2 so its ok..
