Skip to comments.Obama’s Memorial Day Photo-Op Blocks Families, Vets from Vietnam Memorial for 7 Hours
Posted on 06/05/2012 9:23:25 AM PDT by Nachum
On Memorial Day, the Vietnam Memorial in D.C. is supposed to look like this: Instead, for seven long hours, it looked like this: Obamas secret service shut down the memorial for most of the day, as families and veterans who had come to pay their respects to fallen loved ones were forced to stay hundreds of feet away. Why? So that the Narcissist-in-Chief could show up for 15-minute speech and photo-op with his carefully selected fans in the audience. In his campaign speech remarks, Obama made sure to mention that: As long as Im president,

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
A 7 hour shut down, for a 15 minute photo-op?
Much as I despise the RaceMarxist, I lay this one on the arrogant, self-important SS assholes.
to quote: “but it’s not about meeeeeee”
And if they had not done a thorough job of searching the area for explosives, gunmen, etc. and the POS had been injured or killed, it would have been their fault also?
He did it on purpose. It’s the bird from the side of his head.
You grow up, and develop some common sense and judgment.
7 full hours to secure an area is utterly ridiculous.
Law enforcement arrogance and power run amok. And this from a person who is FULLY supportive of the reasonable, respectful use of police law enforcement and authority.
I agree. If it took any more than two hours, then it’s ridiculous. Do your sweeps, post your sharpshooters, have the dogs come through, set up the equipment, get the FAA to close down the airspace. I’m sure there are more items to take care of, but the vast majority of it can happen simultaneously.
I guess it fails to occur to you that the fault is Obama's for wanting to occupy the Vietnam Memorial for a photo op on a sacred day when thousands of living Vets would be wanting to visit the wall to remember their fallen camrades.
Seriously, this should never have happened, but since it did, the impact should have been minimized. The Wall is well away from other buildings or streets. SEVEN HOURS on Memorial Day is hideous and overkill.

FIFTY YEAR OLD MANURE SPREADER - $1.00
Fifty-year old manure spreader. Not sure of brand. Said to have been produced in Kenya. Used for a few years in Indonesia before being smuggled into the US via Hawaii. Of questionable pedigree. Does not appear to have ever been worked hard. Apparently it was pampered by various owners over the years.
It doesnt work very often, but when it does it can really sling the shit for amazing distances. I am hoping to retire the manure spreader next November.
I really dont want it hanging around getting in the way. I would prefer a foreign buyer to relocate the manure spreader out of the country. I would be willing to trade it for a nicely framed copy of the United States Constitution.
Currently being stored in a big white house in Washington , D.C.
Not for our king.
Seriously, where was the one staffer, the one Secret Service manager who said this is a really lousy idea on Memorial Day? Can the entire bunch really be so tone-deaf?
Yes. Too much time inside the Beltway.
>>>OBAMANATION OF DESOLATION<<<
Complete with Greek temple columns and temple presstitutes.
This is not a coincidental allegory. America the Beautiful is Materna, Oh Mother Dear, Jerusalem. Obamalek seethes in rage and hate for her and her spiritual children, because they are the true heirs of the land of the free[woman].
Obama ⊄ We the People
Tell the chief clown he has a bad idea and lose your rice bowl.
What an evil piece of crap he is.
Tone deaf.....or just keeping track of barry's body count?
Or perhaps, just "going along" until they can actually do something about it.
This is so egotistical and poor behavior, I wish I could do something besides vote him out.
This is Obama spitting in the faces of nam vets on memorial day for a re election speech?
What is he thinking?
or is he thinking?
