Not as if this election season needs any more hyperbole, but this story is interesting.
Parents of the 17 SEALs killed in action when a Chinook went down more than a year ago just received their "letters" from Obama, each and every one of them is supposedly bearing an electronic signature.
A certified handwriting specialist has not confirmed whether the signatures are that of a computer, or a human, but they look pretty close to identical. Certainly, the president of the most powerful nation on the planet is a busy guy, but if he is robosigning KIA letters for families, it is inexcusable.
Now, it's mostly Right-Wing websites hocking this story to anyone who will listen, and the practice certainly is disgraceful, but the fact remains — the procedure isn't a marked step down from the Bush's practice.
President Bush sent stock letters to every fallen servicemember's family, the only difference being he used a sharpie to sign every one by hand.
