Barack Obama is suffering from the “me too” looser mentality. During the first presidential debate Senator McCain showed his bracelet he received from the parents of a fallen soldier who was killed in action in Iraq. The parents gave John McCain the bracelet wanting to make sure his sacrifice was not in vain.
In response, Obama stumbled while trying to say the name of the soldier who’s bracelet was he wearing, then had to read the name from the bracelet. It turns out the mother that gave Obama the bracelet asked his campaign not to use her son’s name on the trail. In addition, the father of this fallen soldier supports McCain according to Fox News.Once again Barack Obama proves that his political interests trump everything else, including the wishes of parents of fallen soldiers. “Me too” morphs into “me first” in this case.
