Obama To Skip Arlington Memorial Day Ceremony To Visit Friends In Chicago
President Obama continues to slap this country’s traditions around. He will not attend the annual Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington this year.
Instead, he’s going to visit Chicago.
What makes me more sick than his refusal to attend this nation’s most sacred traditional ceremony (especially for the Commander-In-Chief) is the MSM coverage of it.
President Obama is finally addressing one of the great broken promises of his administration: his early pledge to return home to Chicago every six weeks or so.
Obamas plan casual Chicago Memorial Day weekend with friends.
It goes on and on like that.
Not one MSM outlet that I’ve seen today is making a big deal over the Commander-In-Chief missing the most solemn event under his purview.
Where’s the questions of why he isn’t attending the Arlington ceremony while he attended the ceremony of those miners who were killed?
Where’s the references that this is his second Memorial Day that he’s been responsible for an insensitive gaffe?
Remember, Obama sees dead people, and he confused Veteran’s Day with Memorial Day.
With the long Memorial Day weekend on the horizon, President Obama is finally addressing one of the great broken promises of his administration: his early pledge to return home to Chicago every six weeks or so.
In 16 months at the White House, the Obamas have been back home just once – in February of 2009. But they plan to make the trip over Memorial Day weekend, an official said. After arriving on Thursday night, they will visit with friends and participate in private events.
On Monday, Obama will make remarks at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, south of Chicago – missing the usual tradition of presidents speaking at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
In his place, Obama will send Joe (I support Kagan banning recruiters) Biden.
Just another episode in the tragedy that is Barack O’Biden.
