Family Told Obama NOT To Wear Soldier Son’s Bracelet… Where is Media?

By Warner Todd Huston

Barack Obama played the “me too” game during the Friday debates on September 26 after Senator John McCain mentioned that he was wearing a bracelet with the name of Cpl. Matthew Stanley, a resident of New Hampshire and a soldier that lost his life in Iraq in 2006. Obama said that he too had a bracelet. After fumbling and straining to remember the name, he revealed that his had the name of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek of Merrill, Wisconsin.

Shockingly, however, Madison resident Brian Jopek, the father of Ryan Jopek, the young soldier who tragically lost his life to a roadside bomb in 2006, recently said on a Wisconsin Public Radio show that his family had asked Barack Obama to stop wearing the bracelet with his son’s name on it.

    It has gotten some attention from an ABC journalist, on his ABC blog (not an article on their actual news site.) Though the the author seems to begrudge having to mention it, and seems, in my opinion, to want to “drag his feet” on it, it IS on a mainstream journalist’s “work blog.” Here’s hoping he DOES follow up and other news “factories” pick up on it.

    Well, there is a link on Drudge report… here is a comment left from the article from a reader.

    “Let me, uh, just, uh, um check this guy’s name, uh, on this ah, uh, bracelet thingy I, uh, have here. He’s so, ah, special to me, that, I, um, have to ah, remind myself of ah, um, his name by, ah, looking, at, ah, the bracelet.”
