Fleischmann's Postcard To The President Is Inappropriate - And Response (2)

Friday, July 26, 2013

I read with disgust, Mr. Fleischmann's snarky postcard to the President regarding his upcoming visit to Chattanooga. Wouldn't it be much more appropriate and professional if Mr. Fleishman would have the courtesy to say those things to the President's face? But no, he has to send a "postcard," that I assume he had to get approved, possibly ghost written by the NRC and the pundits in Washington, because those are the people that are more important to Mr. Fleishman, not the 3rd District. Instead of showing your buddies that you "stood up" to President Obama, how about standing with him to try and get things done in Washington...in other words,do the job that you were sent to do.

Mr. Fleischmann, whether you agree with the politics or like the man, you should at least respect the office and represent our district when our president comes to town. I am proud of our President and our city and welcome him to Chattanooga, in spite of people like you and the obstructionist in Washington.  

You do not represent me or my views and I find you to be an embarrassment to the 3rd District and to the state of Tennessee. Welcome to Chattanooga, Mr. President, and thank you for all that you have done to help turn our economy around and keeping our country safe.

Mr Fricke:
 
I couldn't possibly agree with you more.
 
Upon reading Congressman Fleischmann's insulting and sophomoric postcard to President Obama, one comes away with two obvious conclusions. First, Congressman Fleischmann leaves no doubt that he is indeed a tiny little man when compared to President Obama. Second, that with his postcard - rife with misspellings - he has subjected all of Chattanooga to ridicule as a bunch of illiterate peckerwoods.
 

You're right. Congressman Fleischmann is a complete embarrassment to every Chattanoogan whose mother instilled in them even the slightest notion of manners.

Roy Exum: Fourth Of July, 2015

As one who is about good and fed up with being “socially correct” so less than 10 percent of us can dictate how the other 90 percent of us ought to think, I am going to pause today in order to share a wonderfully fun email that has been around for a while. It is aptly called, “You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop.” Before I do, I got a sweet note the other day from my dear friend ... (click for more)

New Walmart Neighborhood Market Is A Step Back For The East Brainerd Community

Driving out East Brainerd Road recently, I was excited to see that what I thought was the run down strip center being renovated was actually a new Walmart Neighborhood Market.  I believe that this is the same type facility that was proposed for Middle Valley, but was rejected by the local citizens living in that area. I don't recalling hearing anything about any neighborhood ... (click for more)
