Barack Obama Ignores D-Day Anniversary – Goes to Theatre Party Instead

On June 6, 1944, the D-Day invasion of Europe took place during World War II as Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France. America lost 2,499 of its finest men that day.

(Enterprise News)

It’s too bad Barack Obama missed the anniversary today.

The White House website has nothing posted today on the 66th Anniversary of the D-Day landing.

The president had other things on his mind.
He was attending his second party this week, tonight at the Ford Theatre.

According to the Ford’s Theatre website, the event tonight is described as follows:

Ford’s Theatre Society will host its annual gala on Sunday, June 6, 2010, at Ford’s Theatre (511 10th Street NW). The evening’s performance, titled “America Celebrates July 4th at Ford’s Theatre,” will be taped for broadcast on the ABC Television Network to air July 2, 2010 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET). Modern Family cast member Ty Burrell hosts a star-studded program with appearances by Kelly Clarkson, Renee Fleming, George Lopez, Lionel Richie, Robin Roberts, Dick Van Dyke, Laura Michelle Kelly and Gavin Lee from the Broadway Company of “Mary Poppins,” the Soldiers’ Chorus of the United States Army Field Band, and cast members from the Ford’s Theatre production of “Little Shop of Horrors.”

The President will also be honoring far left Bush-basher and Jew-hater Archbishop Desmond Tutu at the gala.

Everyone must have their priorities.

UPDATE: Here is what Desmond Tutu told the party crowd tonight:

“Security is not something that comes from the barrel of a gun.”

And, he said this on the anniversary of D-Day?
By the way… Isn’t that some version of a Mao quote?

    We certainly know what Obama’s priorities are….

  • antisocialist

    Somehow, this doesn’t surprise me.

  • ahem

    He’s feeling beat up because of all the failures lately. He’s licking his wounds.

    Un-American and Anti-American Bastards, the lot of ’em.

    It’s not just him……. It’s the entire administration…… Every single person involved…….. Keep remembering that for when th……….. Just keep remembering that.

    The Anti-American President. What a horrible time we are living in presently. What in the world did my dad fight for in WWII?

    Not for this disrespect. I was at Jefferson Barracks on Memorial Day talking to an 85 year old veteran who was at the Battle of the Bulge where my dad was also. To think of the sacrifices these men made at age 19 is incredible. For this “Commander in Chief” to ignore these men is…I can’t even think of the right words.

    The old phrase,
    “actions speak louder than words”
    comes to mind…

    muslim’s like SOBama don’t care about D-Day, the ungrand mufti of jerusalem recruited muslin’s to form divisions to fight under the Nazi flag and round up Jews for the death camps.

  • Harry Schell

    There were no Kenyan forces who took to the beaches back then.

    Why thus is this day different than any other, for Junior?

    Only explanation I can offer.

  • Zelsdorf Ragshaft III

    Can’t he be charged with treason for something? I hope and pray he is impeached by the next congress.

    All part of Alisky’s Rules for Radicals. Insult middleclass memories. Confuse them.Make them angry and frustrated. Then they are ready to agree to anything else…
    Pay no attention to this. Work on the election of Conservatives. Remember to watch the polls. the list of voters should be outside each precinct. Call the County registrar of voters. Tehn you can consultthe sign in list and see who has voted.
    Complain if there is a discrepancy. Most states you can set aside a ballot or name.

    This is so shameful – Obama is a disgrace to the position of POTUS.

    Actions speak louder than words, and Obama is coming across loud and clear.

  • Sandy

    Obama was the only Senator to never wear his flag lapel pin. He didn’t even salute our flag until someone called him on it. So none of this surprises me. The Muslims however, are thrilled at his antipathy toward the US and his hatred of Israel. That’s all that matters to him. He has shown he doesn’t care what Americans think.

  • kansas

    The less this traitorous bastard tries to associate himself with patriotic heroes the better it is. Ford theatre? I’m not even gonna go there.

  • txchick57

    My god, 2012 can’t come soon enough. This country has never needed Reagan more than it does now, and he’s dead.

  • Moonbeam

    Obammie knows his days are numbered in the White House. He gotsta Party Hardy.

  • Sickofobama

    The Muslim Marxist doesn’t give a damn about those who served in World War II let alone today.

    God bless those who served then and now and all of the other wars that have made it possible for America to even exist.

    And to think we have the first America-hating, Jew-hating president. So sad. So disgusting.

  • Daniel

    It was so obvious from the start that Obama is anti-American. But people voted for him anyway. We have to pay a price for our lack of self-respect in this country. I think we will have to pay much more for it than we already have. Assuming we regain our pride, any hell will be worth going through.

  • bill-tb

    Wasn’t D-Day an American accomplishment? Why would a foreigner celebrate that.

  • down with dems

    DISGRACE

    Remaking America by ignoring its history… maybe if we don’t talk about it, everyone will forget.

  • myohmy

    Obama is busy remaking America. Who cares if the country is broke?
