The President's Memorial Daze
Investors.com ^ | May 28, 2010 | Investor's Business Daily Sraff

Leadership: Our commander in chief was to miss the wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery to go on vacation. Other presidents have missed it, but never at wartime.

All presidents deserve a vacation, and no president is ever off the clock. But we are at war, and Memorial Day at Arlington has special significance even in peacetime. Those who defend President Obama's decision to take time off were not so understanding whenever President George W. Bush spent time at his Crawford, Texas, ranch.

Obama was to be in his old Chicago-area stomping grounds, and those who attacked Bush for taking his vacations are defending Obama's right to do so. As leftist columnist David Corn so eloquently put it: "Does it matter if Obama throws some leaves on a tomb?" Yes, it matters.

Old friends of mine who served honorably in several wars are interred there. I’d just as soon the Obamanation kept his dirty filthy Chicago shoes OFF and FAR AWAY FROM such hallowed ground.

My bet is he is going to make a secret trip to Afghanistan. It would be the perfect set up for those that criticize him. Then the left can play gotcha.
Of course, I could be wrong. He was so totally tone deaf about Nashville, Sestack, the Gulf etc.

I concur. Mr. Corn doesn’t appreciate why he has his freedom to be an idiot.

“....”Does it matter if Obama throws some leaves on a tomb?”

I have posted in the past about the pockets of gaseous air Leftist idiots have riddled throughout their brains that disrupt the thought processes creating the results they either speak, or pen.

I’m not trying to provide them excuses, but rather trying to make it clear there ought to be a law against Life Forms with gaseous mentally impaired brains even running for office much less holding office in this country.

Thank you very much ExTexasRedhead.

God bless Ronald Reagan.

The lowest form of scum who occupies our White House today is an enemy of America. Ronald Reagan is a hero of America.

I went to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and I have never forgotten it. The fact that the Commander in Chief, during a time when we are fighting two wars and American servicemen are dying for our country, is choosing to ignore their sacrifice is unconscionable. He is disgracing our nation. And he is doing this on purpose. Shame on him.

Especially because he is seeing Paul McCartney on June 2nd. He is choosing to give him an award. He’s doing this as the president of the United States. Like that is an important presidential role... more important than the sacrifice of Americans who have died for their country?

Give me a break.

Never forget how obama is wiping off the soles of his shoes on the memory of our fallen men and women who gave their lives for their country.

When the times comes to remove this socialist and his minions from the White House, step up, do YOUR part and show this despicable creature how we “wipes our shoes.”

We are now the boots on the ground...it's up to us to remove this enemy, or WE will BE removed.

The place of an American president on Memorial Day is placing a wreath at Arlington.

That said, Obama has made clear that he is not acting as an American president, but as a destroyer. He isn't one of us, and his sleepwalking through the role of commander in chief is fast becoming absurd.

I don't want this fraud making a mockery of our traditions. He really wants to go and play, and "sleep in his own bed". Let him. Let him show us who he really is.

“Just a few leaves on a tomb .....”

But the left has nothing to say when he bows to the Japanese, genuflects to the Saudis, applauds the Mexicans for breaking our laws, but throws the Dali Llama out the back door by the trash bags...

About says it all for this “person” ....
