Joe Biden will deliver remarks to families of fallen troops this year for Memorial Day today.
Barack Obama will be absent.
Hat Tip Dave
This speaks volumes.
Golf is event enough.
He’ll ask them to join him on stage! It’ll be the next “Stand up, Chuck” moment.
But Obama will dedicate his first tee shot to the vets- maybe
Give him a break! The Choom Gang is having a major reunion this weekend!
If we had a real, true media in this country, we would be reading about how Obama is collapsing in anger and frustration – or depression – and that there are probably secret meetings going on this weekend to convince him to step down.
Nothing else makes sense to me. I never read this on a tin foil hat site – it’s just my gut instinct. Presidents have to SHOW UP and Memorial Day weekend in an election year is a good time for the powers that be to drag out the President to acknowledge what the holiday means.
I think he’s cracking up and no one will tell us. And this is the really scary thing. They used to try to tell us …
(except of course how they never told us that FDR had polio and could not walk (and my dad had polio at that time and always thought this was awful) or that Woodrow Wilson was in a coma while his wife ran the White House or that JFK was the philandering jackhole we now know him to be).
Man – to be a fly on the ceiling in the White House (or golf course) this weekend!
Obama, Romney to commemorate Memorial Day with veterans
By Justin Sink – 05/25/12 02:59 PM ET
President Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney will both commemorate Memorial Day with tributes to military veterans.
The president and first lady Michelle Obama will participate in the traditional event at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday. The Obamas and Vice President Biden’s wife, Jill, will also attend an event at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall on the National Mall to mark the 50th anniversary of the war.
Relaxing or honoring vets? Come on! This joke of a president is so immature and self-absorbed.
FACT SHEET: Memorial Day and Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War
This Memorial Day, we honor the men and women who have defended our nation, and mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. On Memorial Day, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will participate in an event at Arlington National Cemetery. The President, Vice President, First Lady and Dr. Biden will also attend an event at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. Prior to these events, the President and First Lady Michelle Obama will meet with Gold Star Families. On Friday, the Vice President and Dr. Biden attended an event to honor the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp.
There is another article on Stripes.com that says he is speaking at the Viet Nam wall.
Politico steps in some “cow pie”.
It’s just as well. Memorial Day celebrations will not be dishonored by His presence.
he will be smoking pot or doing a line of coke or stomping on the american flag, trust me he will have something to do to celebrate.
Hmmmm – still not sure if it will be Obama or Biden showing up at Arlington on Monday. Wish we would know.
He missed it in 2010 – http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/27/AR2010052702696.html
This isn’t the first time he’s missed some reverent occasion. I just can’t remember when, sorry. I’m sure some of you who have better memories than I do will know when that was where it was expected he show up and he didn’t on purpose, he didn’t have that on his schedule but instead he had something else he was doing. Oh, I think I remember one! He was in France for some meeting and didn’t go out to the beaches to put wreath’s and make a speech about the dead on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day! That was one. And I remember that even the msm was shocked he didn’t do it. So there are many more that he has, and like in the picture he refuses to put his Commie hand over that rock in his chest instead of a heart that’s supposed to be there, in memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom!!
He will go golfing twice in between “unscripted” moments aka photo ops with grieving families and VA grave markers..
There is no way he does not use Memorial Day as a photo op.
Hmmmm- Obama missed TWO Memorial Day tributes in Arlington where traditionally the President lays a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier?
Seems like he might have been overseas in 2011 –
I suppose we should fact check it but I just know that this is one of those ceremonial things that this particular American President hates. Don’t you agree?
A minute inside Barry’s head:
Why do they keep putting their palms on their chest,when that song (The National Anthem) is played ?
Memorial Day ?…again ?…they just had one last year,plus Veterans Day and the 4th of July. Man this country loves to toot its own horn…
Hey Axelrod,don’t smoke all that,pass it here. If I play patriot today,I’ll need to be stoned
and that concludes ” A minute inside Barry’s head”
OK – I fact checked and I think he did show up in 2011. You know – the puppet must dance to the political string pullers behind the curtain!
‘What is a poor president to do with all his time? Apparently at the Obama White House, sleeping in is at the top of the list…
