I pity the families having to listen to this idiot. But I guess it’s a tad better than having to sit through the BS from the Driveler in Chief.

Good.

Biden is just a fruit loop nobody takes seriously.

Obama is a malevolent poser who would be happier if there were no military.

Give the guy a break, it was exhausting work for him to kill osama bin laden

I am surprised no one could wrangle him up a captive audience of veterans to politely applaud Barry for killing Bin Laden

I guess the grieving families of Seal Team 6, killed by treachery, didn’t invite obozo to speak

Biden was the idiot who outed Seal Team 6 after the Bin Laden raid.

Guess the families of the dead SEALs killed by thta horrible staged ambush after that raid, didn’t invite him to speak at the cemetery

“”Biden Will Deliver Remarks to Families of Fallen Troops This Year… Barack Obama Has No “

I thought this was going to be a fill in the blank thread.

Let me start:

balls.
respect for the military.
respect for the Constitution
birth Certificate.
history.
chance of being re-elected. (That one is wishful thinking)
idea what he is doing there.

How’s that for a start?

I found reference to Barry and Wookie
appearing at Arlington :

>On Memorial Day, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will participate in an event at Arlington National Cemetery.<

at this site:
http://hometownsource.com/2012/05/25/memorial-day-events-include-commemoration-of-50th-anniversity-of-vietnam-war/

If he’s NOT doing anything, may the piss of allah
be upon him. However, please, let’s keep our facts correct
so we don’t look like lemmings.

Here is the whole article:

Memorial Day events include commemoration of 50th anniversity of Vietnam War
NEWS RELEASE — Washington, D.C. – This Memorial Day, we honor the men and women who have defended our nation, and mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.

On Memorial Day, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will participate in an event at Arlington National Cemetery. The President, Vice President, First Lady and Dr. Biden will also attend an event at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.

Prior to these events, the President and First Lady Michelle Obama will meet with Gold Star Families. On Friday, the Vice President and Dr. Biden attended an event to honor the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp.

Marking the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War
“This month, we’ll begin to mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, a time when, to our shame, our veterans did not always receive the respect and the thanks they deserved — a mistake that must never be repeated.” — President Obama, May 16, 2012

The Memorial Day gathering at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall marks the beginning of the national commemoration of the Vietnam War’s 50th anniversary program and is a joint effort between the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, the National Park Service and the Department of Defense.

The Federal Government will partner with State and local governments, private organizations, and communities across America to launch the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War—a 13-year program to honor and give thanks to a generation of proud Americans who saw our country through one of the most challenging missions we have ever faced and pay tribute to the more than 3 million men and women who answered the call of duty with courage and valor. The events and activities that are a part of this commemoration will:

• Thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including personnel who were held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action, for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of these veterans.

• Highlight the service of the armed forces during the Vietnam War and the contributions of federal agencies and governmental and non-governmental organizations that served with, or in support of, the armed forces.

• Pay tribute to the contributions made on the home front by the people of the United States during the Vietnam War.

• Highlight the advances in technology, science, and medicine related to the military research conducted during the Vietnam War.

• Recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by the allies of the United States during the Vietnam War.

I thought Obama was going to speak at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial but maybe thought better of it when so many on here and elsewhere objected and Rolling Thunder was planning to run nearby.

I’ll take a speech by Biden any day over Obama. Though he is a liberal clown, at least Joe is an American clown.

Perhaps he’s going to Pakistan to release the doctor who helped get osama.

This is a good rant.

Between The Kenyan and the man who outed our Navy Seals and led to of 22 their deaths ON BOARD ONE HELICOPTER, resulting in multi-millions of dollars of loss and lives, I’d rather we were just silent for 10 minutes and rang all kinds of church bells for 5. It’s not like those two care a whit anyway.

And seeing BO and MO walking on our servicemen’s graves is enough to rile a whole lot of ghosts.

Rolling thunder rolling in? Never let it be said that TinkerBO and his helmet bike bell would be seen with the like.

He will be teeing off at Bethesda Naval golf Course with a threesome who could not get clearance to be on a Naval Base without Obama.

I wonder what Hedge Fund Manager will buy Obama a home and Membership in December 2012.

It is so hard to keep track of which liberal in the White House committed a worse sin.

So besides being brainless, he is also responsible for the deaths of our men.

Not surprised.

This is BS. Memorial Day is to honor those who gave their lives in war. Veteran’s Day celebrates all veterans. More revisionist history in the making.

He didn't attend in 2010 either. Biden spoke while Bambi took off for Chicago. He was supposed to speak at Lincoln's gravesite, but the event was called off because of a heavy downpour of rain.

Obama's speech rained out

So during his four years in office, he's missed Memorial Day at Arlington twice.

It appears he is avoiding the public, unless there is a large campaign donation involved.

This is BS. Memorial Day is to honor those who gave their lives in war. Veteran’s Day celebrates all veterans. More revisionist history in the making.

Well said, Snoop.

I spent the last four days in Kerrville, Texas, where the paper implied that an event Thursday night was to honor "veterans." I ranted about it for a couple of days (mostly to my 84-year-old Mother, who agreed with me, but also to my wife and grown children, who were forbidden early on to honor me as a vet on this hallowed day), and everyone said just what you said.

It turned out, though, that everyone involved in the ceremony, including the speakers, emphasized that "Memorial Day is to honor the dead who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country," and it was a solemn occasion throughout the presentation.

Great to attend, too -- flyover (T-45s instead of the promised F-16s, but few knew it, and the sound was still good), great appreciative speakers, fireworks, and home by 9:30.

I love Kerrville. But shhhh, don't tell anyone about it. Damyankees are taking over already...

Good. Biden is just a fruit loop nobody takes seriously. Obama is a malevolent poser who would be happier if there were no military. And yet there are many on FR that would give him another 4 years to either express their detestation of Romney or "make it more likely we would get a conservative candidate to vote for in 2016..."

I’m glad all turned out right. Thank you for your service. I have been on this ever since 9/11 when those in charge allowed the “victims” to take over the Memorial Day activities that year. It’s a shame that our history is being revised right before our own eyes. It’s even more shameful that our schools are not teaching our children the difference. I will continue to keep harping about it.
