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: Cometh ‘The Black Dog’

I am one of 350 million people in the world who suffers from clinical depression. The doctors trace it back to my first decade of the 21 st century when constant surgeries and infections knocked me loopy but the more I have found, I believe I am more like Sir Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and pro football star Terry Bradshaw – I think I have had it all my life. Today it ... (click for more)

Alcoa Ends Notre Dame's Season With 42-2 Setback

ALCOA -- It's hard to get past the cold hard facts. Notre Dame's Fighting Irish football team had another outstanding season, but it ended the same way as last year with a semifinal loss to the Alcoa Tornadoes. It wasn't as close as last year's 28-19 defeat as Alcoa gave up a safety in its first possession before scoring 42 straight points, winning for the 10th straight week ... (click for more)
