Skip to comments.Obama misses DAR's Continental Congress
Posted on 11/04/2009 4:50:42 PM PST by plain talk
Not something that would make national headlines, but did not miss a stunned audience, President Barack Obama became the first American president in 118 years to abstain from the same long tradition of addressing the Daughters Of the American Revolution (DAR) Continental Congress, named after the governing body of the American Colonies during the American Revolution.

OK so he is the first President in a 100 years to not send a rep or show up. DAR is a conservative org so they don't count I suppose. My understanding based on inside information is that at the opening they allowed 3 minutes for the WH rep to show up for the keynote address. 3 minutes of silence was allowed and then they went ahead and skipped the traditional keynote address. Incredible.
Kenyans are like this ...
Just a Jakarta street kid. Means nothing to him. Which of the 57 states was this held in again?
American traditions are of no interest to Mr. obama, I believe.
Is he going to attend the conference of the Daughters of the Muslim Brotherhood?
Zero also disrespected the observance of the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Angela Merkel invited him to be there and he was too busy being a crying Kenyan tittie baby to go. (Props to Imus for calling O a “tittie baby” recently)
Zero is now officially on the “ittie bitty tittie committee”. (stole that from another Freeper)
You notice how our so-called president after a drubbing always finds someway to retaliate? Childish.
The great 0 has no time for them.
Naw..he’s probably just sending an undisclosed amount of our tax money as a gift!
I DETEST THAT SON OF A BITCH! Obama was to busy planning for the filming of “Iron Chef”!
I’m sure his mentors Jeremiah Wright and Frank Marshall Davis told him that DAR members were descended from slave-owning honkies.
(...but she wouldn't have welcomed the Usurper anyway)
I had a black classmate in high school who was a member of the DAR....they are NOT all white.
Easily explained. Their motto is “God, home, and country.” Doesn’t work well with developing another people’s democratic dictatorship.
No, he couldn’t be bothered with the Berlin Wall anniversary celebration. Things that have deep meaning to most Americans are not on his radar screen. All he has time to do is traipse around the world and tell people how rotten this country is, and apologize. And watch documentaries about himself on TV.
I’ve read estimates that as much as twenty percent of the population of the original Colonies was black.
Don't her & her son's ancestors go back to pre-Revolutionary America? Thanks.
from the link’s website:
“What could have been so important in the Presidents schedule that would make him miss, in my words dis, Continental Congress? President Obama was meeting with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Russian President Medvedev at the Kremlin and instead addressed the 2009 graduating class of the New Economic School at Gostinny Dvor and later met world leaders at the G8 Summit.”
obviously he had his priorities...cough, cough...
typical white women
President Barack Obama became the first American president in 118 years to abstain from the same long tradition of addressing the Daughters Of the American Revolution (DAR) Continental Congress, named after the governing body of the American Colonies during the American Revolution.It's an even older political tradition called boycotting.
Even though he is more white then Arab and African.
I like that Ittie Bitty.............descriptive.
Hates the country, not a surprise. MSM: Nothing to see here.
With a little bit of work I think there's a case that whole crowd would be eligible for membership in the Oneida Indian tribe (and I may well pursue my own application for that ~ btw, all that information is "secret" so I'm not going to upset the applecart by revealing all that I know.)
Obama's grandmother had one of the most illustrious genealogies anyone in America could have. It's all on the internet back to the Revolution, and in parts earlier. I have much of the information regarding individuals named in the earliest parts of that genealogy and can take a good deal of it back to Scandinavia and France (which is the part in which I've been specializing).
Possibly, but I predict (you heard ti here first), that zero will be the 1st US President to fly Air Force One to Mecca for his Haj...
I don’t know.
Most people in the United States have pre-Revolutionary Colonial ancestors, but may not know it. Just off the top of the head, I’ve got at least five different family lines that go back that far, and at least four out of five of them served to overthrow British monarchic rule.
Of course, everyone has ancestors as old as everyone else’s, but that’s a different discussion... ;’)
No, he won’t be attending the Belles of the Confederacy Ball ‘cause he can’t be queen of the Ball...but let’s just call him “Belle” anyway.
That 'bout sums it up.
My husband’s aunt who is in her 80’s and a lifelong member of DAR. I just sent her the link and boy is she gonna be unhappy. I read all the comments and there were some pissed off little ladies on the site.
He boasted of it at one time. He was schooled abroad and has seemed resentful of the American system.
He lied about his parents coming together 5 years AFTER his birth (5 years+9months after they did it) because of what happened in Selma Alabama.
He spins myths about this nation but does not celebrate anything about it.
Barney Fwank wants that acclaim.
And the fall of the Berlin Wall, also!! He is PATHETIC!!
He already has a list.
The DAR members should now know that Obama is indeed an enemy of the Republic, and of conservatives inn particular.Obama will destroy every one of them if he can.
I detest the bastard, too. But I’m glad he didn’t show up. Having a Marxist show up for a continental congress is more than my frontal lobes can handle.
Yes, he would be a better choice, and he has the dresses to prove it!
Were I a member of the DAR, I would have enjoyed sending the president a thank you note for not showing up.
“He already has a list.”
His real problem: MILLIONS of people now have Obama and his party
at the top of their list.
All of them chomping at the bit in anticipation of sending a message
that can’t be denied/ignored on the first Tuesday of November 2010.
The Berlin wall was definitely on his radar screen. He intentionally dissed the event. To understand why, one need look no further that who uttered the words "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."
Republican strategists should be keeping a list of all of the events and people he dissed and those he honored with his presence. It could make for excellent campaign ads in 2012.
I've read that if you have ancestors that were here previous to 1690, then, due to the entire population of people being so small, that you are related to every other American currently alive who also can trace their ancestry back to a person living in America previous to 1690 - and I believe that I read that Barack Obama's American ancestry DOES go back there, and so although he may not be interested -- but some day his daughters might be interested in this. And all of them would be be related to many millions of Americans, who simultaneous are all related to oneanother through those very early ancestral connections.
Perhaps I did not express that well. Things that have deep meaning to most Americans do not have deep meaning to him. So, yes, he intentionally snubbed the celebrations because to him, THE FACT THAT WE WON THE COLD WAR, that all those people were freed, is unimportant, unworthy of his time. He would prefer they were still living under the communist boot, and he thinks this would be a better place if we did. It is as if he is from a different country, and has no love of ours, nor any appreciation for its achievements. Also, he would rather have his tongue ripped out than credit Reagan or any of the other Cold Warriors with their achievements. What a petty bastard, in the true sense of the word. Oh, and long laundry lists don’t make good campaign ads.
“Were I a member of the DAR, I would have enjoyed sending the
president a thank you note for not showing up.”
And if the writer prudently singed the note “Anon.”...
you can bet there’d soon be plenty of IRS audits for DAR members!!!
Your French connections, are they Huguenot? Don't you (also) have ties to New Sweden, or is that another freeper?
Eleanor Roosevelt quit the DAR, right? Because they refused to allow Mahalia Jackson to perform, was that the correct incident?
That is absolutely fascinating about the Oneida ancestry, that sounds extremely complex!
Sorry — your timeline is off. The DAR Congress was last summer. In fact, this article dates back to July 2009. But I get your point :)
