...and the FAIL continues ...
Zer0 should have been on the Mall last night and at Arlington Today. On the other hand, karma has a way of making things work out.
It’s kind of funny, but he probably was happy about it as I’m sure he didn’t want to be messing up his 4 year vacation with trivial commemorations in the first place.
Hmmph! Where would we be if our troops didn’t fight in the rain and snow.
Was the whole thing canceled or just our water sensitive pres.
My Dad fought in the wet season in Korea. Don't remember him wimping out over the rain.
Proving that God does indeed have a sense of humor.
The less I see of Obama pretending to care about our troops, the better. To him I say: Stay home, wannabe.
As for our troops, particularly our wounded and departed, I say, thanks again. We remember you.
Somehow, that seems appropriate.
For myself, I have come to think many things about Obamao, his skipping out on the Arlington Ceremony is the first time I’ve been honestly disappointed in the man, I used to have some modicum of respect for him, now, he is the dude who skipped out on beloved Grandmother’s funeral because “it’s a drag”
BHO claimed he was worried about “the children” being hit by lightning.
If anyone was going to be struck by lightning . . .
The a-hole in chief should have been issued an umbrella with a long copper spike attached to the top......
I think the veterans in heaven got together and said “not today moron, we’re not in the mood.”
I got the impression in Summer, 2008 that the Big-O could part the clouds and bring back the sun.
Guess I was wrong.
You should read FR more. Seriously? That's the only beef you have with this Marxist?
NOT a combat vet, I still remember those I had to collect as a medic...
But those who never served are in charge, and I can’t see things getting better any time soon.
So it goes.
Can we arrange a similar storm when he comes to Pittsburgh on Wednesday?
Alas, I think the b-s event he is starring in is indoors. Still, lightning can strike indoors too....
EPIC FAIL thy name is 0bama.
What size rock have you been hiding under?
Bless his little pea picking heart. . . . . . . (NOT)
Is he afraid his colors will run?
Doesn’t want to show the yellow streak down his back? Or is it the “pinko” color of his inner core?
We all know he doesn’t show respect to the Red, White and Blue of our country.
Oh, yeah, it’s always about “the children” with these leftist pinkos.
My father one time told myself and my brother that it didn’t rain in the Army when we came in from working outside because of a little rain shower. We really didn’t want to be out there anyway.
When my brother was drafted he went through boot camp and then to Korea. He wrote back that my Dad was right. It didn’t rain, snow, sleet or hail in the army.
Maybe someone should have told The One.
Could have been worse, he could have been stuck in the Gulf.
Pray for Our Vets
He claims that electing him would lower the sea levels. He should be able to make the rain stop. Ha ha
Thru rain,sleet and snow the mail must go but not odumbo FUBO
That is the quote of the day! Best news of the day that he couldn’t speak and dishonor our veterans with his meaningless words that he spouts.
On February 27th, 2009, I stood out in the snow while organizing the tea party in Omaha.
On April 15th, 2010, I stood out in the pouring rain while at the tea party in Lincoln.
Obama, afraid the teleprompter might short out and leave him speechless, cancels his Memorial Day celebration.
If I were the one that needed to honor our fallen, I’d have been out there, damn the weather.
Obama is a disgrace.
HA HA HA...rained out!!!
As Dugh Moe would say...No Hoper
Are you serious or are you joking? Did these socialist fools really come up with this lamest excuse in history?
EPIC BABY FAIL!!!!!!!!!
You golf in lightning storms.
From the video, you will see that there are brief moments where he looks straight ahead when he is talking. This is something he never does when reading from a teleprompter. I am willing to bet that at some point he lost power and his teleprompters when blank, and it was only at that moment that he decided to delay his address. As you notice, there was no Secret Service agent stepping forward to protect the President. Instead, Obama called it off on his own.
Leave 'em at home, stupid! Isn't that why you dragged mother-in-law to the White House at taxpayers expense? To baby sit?
“Just plug the damn hole in the clouds!”
Yup. He said it. A little rain never hurt anybody but we we gotta worry about “the children”. They could get hit by lightning.
Maybe he was worried MO would melt.
He’s worried lightning could hurt the children, he who launched the economic and medical care equivalent of a nuclear attack on the those same children, their children, and their grandchildren.
It’s always about “the children” with libtards. They are completely shame proof.
Remember when Granny Pelosi surrounded herself with little kids?
They use “the children” they way Hamas uses “the Palestinians”.
Here it is:
Comment #6: I hope it rains where ever he goes for vacation.
Sometimes I even scare myself.
The only thing, I believe he “wannabe,” is respected. That will NEVER happen with me and I believe a lot of you out there.
Spare me, Obamao has been the leftist neo Commie I knew he was, however I did not consider him irresponsible, if anything events that Glorify the State would be right up his alley.
Instead, he punked out, went to IL, and now was rejected even by the weather.
Some gave all ... and some stayed inside because it was raining. (POSPOTUS)
did not show at Arlington, let a little rain drive him away in Illinois, but made time to record a statement that was played at 3PM on the scoreboards of all Major League Baseball parks, in order to get free TV face time.
Somehow the phrase “piece of human excrement” just does not quite capture it.
Man... stay away from the “hillbilly heroin”. The first time you say????
