Obama disrespected our British allies too.

Barack Obama 'too tired' to give proper welcome to Gordon Brown

Peg Luksik makes a very good point. Obama not showing up for the Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball was not an oversight, it was a snub and reflects this boy presidents disdain for our military.

Thank you for posting this....I never knew it happened!
This president is doing many bizarre things uncharacteristic of any past president. His term will be up in four years, his popularity is dropping daily. He’s acting like some small time political hack....not a president. The Obama Gaffe book will be huge after 4 years!

I knew Mitchell Paige (Medal of Honor - Guadalcanal...pics on my page) and he told me that he boycotted Clinton's second inaugural because he despised him so much.

A picture is emerging of this naive and immature president. He is targeting every enemy of the angry left, including our British allies.

I agree, his absence was deliberate.

Thanks, EB. What a privilege for you to have known Medal of Honor recipient Mitchell Paige.

This is old news that Obie didn’t visit the Medal of Honor receipients. But then why is anything else expected? Obie, as a good Lefty Democrat is anti-military. Never expect a change.

President Bush was able to conduct the WH business, be gracious to his foreign guests and even find time to excercise and still be optomistic and confident.
The coke snorting slouch desecrating the WH now can’t even come up with an original gift idea for an important dignitary. We are sooooo screwed!

I saw a snippet of video showing the Anointed “0”ne and his family getting off of Marine 1 and him tossing off a smug and arrogant “salute” to the honor guard...made me want to punch him in the nose...

Many perhaps forget the total disrespect the Clinton's had for our military. Zero and his wife of course are now trying to make it look like they really care about our military folks by starting to visit military bases, the wife reaching out to military families etc..
Delusion must be established. Meanwhile he will scrap our military over the next eight years given the chance to do so.
And the same will go with our of lately reorganized Intel organizations, CIA being a primary target for diminishing.
We shall read over the next few years how changes are made in these Intel agencies that eliminate the good things that where put in place during the GWB years.

Remarks (of President Harry S Truman) at the Presentation of the Congressional Medal of Honor to Fourteen Members of the Navy and Marine Corps, October 5, 1945:

“We are not a warlike nation. We do not go to war for gain or for territory; we go to war for principles, and we produce young men like these. I think I told every one of them that I would rather have that medal, the Congressional Medal of Honor, than to be President of the United States.”

Until this year. This year, for the first time, a United States president, who carries the title of commander in chief of America’s military, decided honoring those who served and sacrificed in that military was NOT a priority.

The 48 Medal of Honor winners and their families who were in attendance were not visited by this president. They waited in vain while Mr. Obama visited the Hollywood-sponsored events....

Yes he did. He only sucks up to Blue Star Families for Obama. This is a Dem front group.

Marxist Obama views our Military with the same contempt that WE hold for his (alleged) mentor and BFF, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.

The highest priority for Marxist Obama and his handlers is to degrade, insult, demoralize, defund, and re-orient our precious Military.

This, my FRiends, it the keystone objective and topmost element of the...Obama/Ayers Doctrine!

I don't think he cares, he just wants to do as much damage as he can before he gets run out of town.

All the more reason to stand up to this bully and his minions. Maybe the Missourians will be able to get his birth certificate. That’s the kind of hope that I have.
