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.
