“Any soldier that gets killed in action, you’d think the president would be calling someone in the family. There’s no politics in it. His predecessor did it."
Patrick Collins, father of fallen soldier, Sgt. Sean Collins, who lost his life in Afghanistan.
First, our prayers to Mr. Collins and his ex-wife Linda. May they find some strength to get through what has to be any parent's worst nightmare.
Read the article, it is just one shinning moment after another for the Democrats.
This is what the quote was referring to specifically:
The other slight came when Patrick Collins called the White House and asked to have President Obama call his ex-wife, Linda, to talk about their son.
He was told that Obama did not regularly make phone calls to the families of fallen soldiers.
Later, Patrick Collins read a story about Obama’s phone call to Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie. Obama reportedly praised Lurie for giving quarterback Michael Vick a second chance to play football after serving time in prison for running a dog fighting ring.
So our President can make a call in support of a thug and convicted felon but does "not regularly make phone calls to the families of fallen soldiers."?
Their words, not mine.
Mr. Collins said it best himself, our former President made these calls.
Here's to hoping that 2 years and 21 days from now we will be saying "Former President Obama...."
