David Jr. Meets His commander In Chief

For those who do not know Dave Borden, he is a former Black & Decker
employee who lives in Hanover . His son Dave Jr was serving in Iraq and was
badly injured from a bomb explosion. Dave Jr has had over 38 surgeries to
date. The email below is from a recent visit from President Obama. The
email speaks for itself.

Since Dave Jr. has been injured he has met and been overwhelmed by many,
many political and military "celebs". The list includes Bob Gates, Sec.
of Defense, who came into his room and told him 3 or 4 times that if Dave
Jr. had any issues to call his cell phone number. It includes Gen.
Petereus who sat and talked with Dave Jr. for almost 45 minutes. The
General recalled vividly all of the circumstances around the events that
led to fighting that Dave was involved in. It includes Sen. McCain who
arrived late on a Saturday afternoon during a thunder storm, unannounced,
and talked to Dave Jr. about how similar their experiences with fate. It
includes George Bush when Dave Jr. was invited to attend the very last
Christmas party at the White House for the White House Staff. President
Bush and his wife entered the ballroom and immediately went to Dave Jr..
President Bush knew Dave Jr.'s name as well as when and how he was
injured. Dave Jr. had a picture taken with Laura and the President that
he has framed and will cherish forever. The list goes on and on of people
coming in to meet Dave Jr. and the other wounded warriors at Walter Reed
and Bethesda ...

Yesterday. Dave Jr. was ordered to be at the National Naval Hospital with
another 12 soldiers and Marines to meet with Obama. Obama was supposed to
arrive at 11:30 AM. He finally got there at 3:00 PM. He entered the room
with the wounded warriors and quickly shook each of their hands. He never
asked their names, where they were from, or how they were injured. Then
he left.

Dave Jr. has met the people who really care about the military. All he
remembers from Obama is a weak handshake. The others in the room, younger
and less exposed to the people that Dave Jr. has met, were so
disappointed. Word about Obama's "insensitive" visit has spread to the
MATC ( the rehab facility) at Walter Reed and throughout Bethesda . The
military sees through his phoniness.

All I can say is that it is such a dissappointment that this man is
Commander-In-Chief of our Armed Forces. He is an embarrasment to our


Don't blame me !

I voted for the AMERICAN !
