Obama missing: National Police Week
Washington Times ^ | 5/13/11 | Editorial

Posted on 05/13/2011 4:17:30 PM PDT by Nachum

Sunday, May 15 is the 30th annual Peace Officers Memorial Service. Law enforcement from all over the country gathered in Washington for National Police Week to honor fallen comrades-in-arms. Too bad President Obama couldn’t be there. Despite being invited to speak to the widows, children and friends of the 165 officers recognized this year as killed in the line of duty, he somehow didn’t think it was important to trek the two miles from the White House to the Capitol Building to participate. Perhaps it’s because Mr. Obama historically has had a conflicted relationship with law enforcement.

Obama's conciliatory moves marked an abrupt shift from Friday morning, when White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed a suggestion that the backlash from police groups could be distressing to the White House, given that Obama has enjoyed a positive relationship with the law enforcement community.

"I think the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed McCain," Gibbs fired back at reporters, referring to Obama's Republican opponent in the 2008 election. "If I'm not mistaken."

President Obama Thanks Officers
Obama praised the winners of a national police association award for courage and heroism
Thursday, May 12, 2011

At a White House ceremony Thursday, Obama praised the winners of a national police association award for courage and heroism that ranged from carrying out dangerous drug stings to investigating last year’s attempted bombing of New York’s Times Square.

I think the quote was “....stupid police”. Obama said this about his fellow racist being arrested for breaking the law.

He would have been there, but he didn’t get his speech on the need for law enforcement racial sensitivity finished in time.

Strange how so many regard him as some sort of god whose presence and blessing are considered desirable. Is nothing legit unless he graces it with his imperial attendance?
Disheartening that people place so much importance in government.

Thanks. For a moment there I thought I might have been seeing things that weren’t there.

Yes he did make a speech standing in front of some craven police officers, never mind O’s having common to the white house the night before.

In 2001 I traveled 3000 miles to attend the Peace Officers Memorial Service. A dear friend, a great man, and an honorable Deputy Sheriff was murdered in cold blood. Deputy Wally Davis was one of my guys.

It was tough, but meeting President Bush seemed to ease the pain, a bit. He was so very gracious and comforting.

If that had happened today, I would make the trip, but I would not want that corrupt bastard, Obama, to breath the same air. I wouldn’t hesitate to turn my back to this slime.

I’d like to know who is paying for all these people to travel to Washington for a remembrance event. I hope it isn’t the taxpayers.

I only posted that because I happened to see it on the news last night. I don’t believe Obama is any friend of law enforcement. It was a photo op, as usual. What’s in it for him?

The union police officers really don’t seem interested in how much they’re dissed by the Democrats. They keep voting them in and throwing up opposition to anyone opposing them.

Obama doesn’t want to show up because there is probably a warrant out on his ass.
