Angry Memorial Day at Arlington Memorial Cemetary

So our beloved Commander and Chief could not even be present at the services held at Arlington National Cemetary, it was VP Biden in his place....this disgusts me, discuss....

This should not surprise anyone. Sad? Yes. Expected? Yes. The man has no respect for our armed forces. They are simply political fodder, and will be used at his convenience to embellish his accomplishments or to achieve his personal goals.

Not a great idea on his part at all. I can understand if there was something major going on, but while the country is at war? Give me a break. I also read that Reagan and Bush Sr. did the same thing which also disturbs me a little. I hope they were up to something pretty damn important instead because that looks like shit on their part IMO.

On the flipside... many would probably criticize him if he showed up. It's like the one you invite to the party but hope would not show up. I'm more on the side of not seeing him there at all.

No secret he loathes the military and finds their service beneath him. One more thing to damage his reputation.

Well that's a bit racist.

He just slapped the face of every man and woman in the military, past and present.

I wonder how many people woke up to his crap on this one?



All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.

probably not many.watch the news this evening and see how they play this off.people are ignorant now days.

people need to remember what today is all about.it's not about boating on the lake or getting ripped.

best news i heard today was the boy scouts are hitting cemetaries with flags to give to all our deceased veterans.thats a huge A+ in my book.

all while Obama was where?in chicago on vacation?really?

can i get a slap the prez smiley?

I remember reading how Bush Sr. never went because it reminded him of all his friends he buried coming back from the war. Someplace he really never wanted to visit again...

Either way, at least Sr. and Reagan Served this country in times of war...

He also did not go to the Gridiron Breakfast. No surprise here on my part for this weekend.

.....guys I am not supporting his kcalb ass but history shows other presidents doing the same thing...

Do I think the POTUS/CIC should stop everything and lay the reaf every year? YES, he is the man that is ultimately responsible for the losses on his watch.

Reagan skipped once out to attend some financial summit and one time Bush Sr. was too busy playing golf to lay the wreath.

Bush Sr said many times that the memories of his buddies getting killed were usually too much to bear.

He's a WW2 vet who was in theatre, so I believe his excuse.

George H.W. Bush United States Naval Reserve Lieutenant World War II (1942-1945)


Reagan enlisted in 1937, he didn't have to be drafted. The only reason he wasn't in theatre was because of extreme nearsightedness.




Both served. They have an excuse. What excuse does Obama have?

Obama doesn't deserve to set foot on the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery. But he also doesn't deserve to be Commander in Chief, but he is. And since he IS the CIC, he has a duty to attend.
