Something to Ponder this Memorial Day Weekend
June 6, 2013 was the 69th anniversary of D-Day, the largest invasion ever attempted, where 200,000 Americans stormed the beaches at Normandy to begin the final push to defeat Nazi Germany in WWII.
D-Day marked the turning point of WWII in Europe. Today, European heads of state make it a point to recall and honor the sacrifices of those who landed in Normandy, as do our presidents… well… most of them.
In the 69 years since D-Day, there are four occasions when the president of the United States chose not to visit the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the invasion.
The occasions were:
1. Barack Obama, 2010
2. Barack Obama, 2011
3. Barack Obama, 2012
4. Barack Obama, 2013
For the past 69 years, every American president except Obama has taken the time to honor the memory and sacrifices of the 6,000 American soldiers killed on D-Day.
June 6 2010,
Obama had no events scheduled.
June 6, 2011,
Obama met with the National Security team and was interviewed by WEWS Cleveland and WDIV in Detroit about the auto industry, far too busy to visit the D-Day memorial.
June 6, 2012,
Obama made a campaign trip to California on Air Force One (at our expense) to raise funds for (his) upcoming election instead of honoring our fallen soldiers.
June 6, 2013,
Obama was doing another fund-raiser with the multimillionaires in the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in Palo Alto CA , once again at our expense.
I wonder where His Majesty will be during this year’s 70th D-Day anniversary?
-Think tanking about how to further sabotage the VA medical care system?
-Breaking in his new putter?
-Bogarting (intercepting) joints while hanging out with his old Choom gang?
-Shaving Michelle’s hairy knuckles?
Your guess is as good as mine.
Hey, America, aren’t you proud?
