Of course he played golf....what else. His whole presidency has been one vacation after another, one golf game after another, and one mistake after another. Our fallen don’t need a socialist creep spewing lies at their memory. I’m glad he stayed away, now I wish he would just GO AWAY.

It was too hot and humid to expect him to wear a suit and stand through a hour long ceremony at the cemetery...like I did.

OMG! This is horrible. Just who does she think she is? I seriously doubt she did this out of any kind of sympathy or compassion. I imagine this was only done to report to her Muslim controllers, the state of injuries our troops have received and how their war against America is going.

A least we know that she's an American.

How cute. Hussein’s wife, the KISS-ASS MEDIA wants us to know, is meeting privately with the servicemembers. I love how they’re keeping this on the down-low, you know, not drawing attention to the fact that these are “private” meetings...:

Better him playing golf than sitting in the White House plotting mischief with his advisers and handlers.

he is a disgrace to this nation and a huge embarrassment. He is plotting mischief and it will be with LSM help. I can bet on it.

You know it. Does anybody really think she wanted to do this? It’s all a part of keeping the Marxist/Muslim usurper a$$ in our White House.

When I watched Obama's speech at about the 12:00 minute mark, he seems to become bored and just starts reading his teleprompter to get things over with - not even bothering to fake sincerity or animation.

At the end he tells a story of two fallen heroes and stumbles over the words he's reading several times. Then, it looks like he just sort of walks away.

Being there, what did you see?

I could not watch DumBO at the laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown, because, i knew he had no sincerity in it.

If I thought that having ZerO work in the White House meant anything I would not begrudge his golf, but, he does nothing either place.

He is insincere and I hope he stays away Veterans Day too. He is an Amerihater.

I am not a fan of Michelle Obama, but this is certainly something the First Lady should do, and I thank her for doing it.

Agreed. We should not criticize her for visiting the wounded warriors. It was a nice thing to do, whatever her motives.

Yes yes, at the 12 minute mark a huge change. He definitely became bored and didn’t even try to fake sincerity.

I urge everyone to view the speech and see for yourself the change which occurs around 12 minutes in!

The basta*d has no soul....look into his eyes and they are dead. He's a fake...and he can't fake THAT. We see through him. He is out to hurt us and our country...and we must deal with him accordingly as the vile enemy that he is.
