Since When Do American Presidents Diss Our Fallen Troops on Meml Day? Since Obama, That’s When

By Debbie Schlussel

It was bad enough when Sean Hannity dissed the sacrifices and memories of our fallen troops by raising money in their name (the “Sean Hannity Freedom Concerts”) and sending a good chunk of it to his speaking engagement agent, his cronies that run a con-artist filled charity,  and using it to pay for his private jets and fancy travel and accommodations for himself and friends.  That was a scam which he continues . . . and continues to lie and obfuscate about.  But he’s not the President, just a scam artist with a giant audience on FOX News and ABC radio.

Now, though, the President,  Barack Obama, is flat-out telling America he doesn’t care about our fallen troops.  He’s skipping the traditional Memorial Day laying of the wreath ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.  Hey, at least he’s honest.  More honest than when he faked his Selective Service Registration, years after the fact, a story I broke on this site over a year and a half ago.  So, I guess it’s kind of fitting that a guy who scammed his way out of registering for the draft, is blatantly F-U-ing his way out of honoring America’s fallen.

With the long Memorial Day weekend on the horizon, President Obama is finally addressing one of the great broken promises of his administration: his early pledge to return home to Chicago every six weeks or so.

In 16 months at the White House, the Obamas have been back home just once – in February of 2009. But they plan to make the trip over Memorial Day weekend, an official said. After arriving on Thursday night, they will visit with friends and participate in private events.

On Monday, Obama will make remarks at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, south of Chicago – missing the usual tradition of presidents speaking at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.

Since when are promises to a city of political thugs more important than honoring those who fought and died for America? Since Barack Obama became President. That’s when.

Unconscionable.  Truly a travesty.  But not surprising, given that it’s this guy.  What an embarrassment for a President.  Not that you didn’t already know that.

BTW, how long until Sean Hannity, who is still scamming off soldiers’ dead bodies, starts harping on this when he still hasn’t come clean about his own dissing of our fallen? 3-2-1 . . . (Michelle Fraudkin, who blindly defended Hannity’s scamming of America’s fallen is already on the case. Hypocrisy on the right is as bad as hypocrisy on the left. A damn shame. And plenty of shameless damned.)

I can’t wait until HE LEAVES OFFICE.

He is despicable.

goldenmike4393 on May 25, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    Previous presidents have allowed others to lay wreath at Arlington Cemetery to honor troops

    I GUESS ALL THESE PREVIOUS PRESIDENT WERE BAD FOR DOING THE SAME D&MN THING!….YOU ARE SUCH A HYPOCRITE

    1983: Reagan attended summit meeting; Defense Department official Thayer laid wreath at Arlington. Deputy Secretary of Defense W. Paul Thayer laid a wreath at Arlington Cemetery during the Memorial Day ceremony in 1983, according to a May 31, 1983, Washington Post article (accessed via Nexis). The AP reported that President Reagan attended a “summit meeting in Williamsburg, Va., with leaders of the industrialized democracies.”

    1992: George H.W. Bush allowed VP Quayle to lay wreath. In 1992, Vice President Dan Quayle laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day, according to a May 26, 1992, Boston Globe article (accessed via the Nexis database). The Globe reported that President George H.W. Bush attended a wreath-laying ceremony and made brief remarks at an American Legion hall in Kennebunkport, Maine, where he also played a round of golf.

    Veterans Day 2007: Cheney attends ceremony to pay tribute at Arlington as Bush remained in Texas. On November 11, 1007, the AP reported that “President Bush honored U.S. troops past and present at a tearful ceremony Sunday for four Texans who died there.” The AP further reported that “Vice President Dick Cheney went to Arlington to pay tribute to Iraq veterans.”

    RELD on May 25, 2010 at 10:15 pm

Goldenmike4393,

Do you really think he is going to leave?

I think he is planning to be a dictator that stays in for life.

Angie on May 25, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    I agree wholeheartedly, Angie. I’ll be surprised if there are even elections this coming November, forget 2012.

    mk750 on May 26, 2010 at 3:36 am

I’m GLAD he’s not going to be there!

I don’t want his presence defiling that sacred ground.

Not only that, without the hassle and aggravation of the President being there, the general public will find it much easier to attend the ceremony, without all the unnecessary harassment from the Secret Service.

John Robert Mallernee on May 25, 2010 at 3:44 pm

Patriotism is so passe. Every one today is concerned about what’s in for them. Respect for the dead and their sacrifices? Hey, all that most Americans know about Memorial Day is that its the kickoff to the start of summer.

And we have a low class President who shares their views. Might as well name it “National Kickoff To Summer Day.” And the Arlington tribute to our military dead ritual is already yesterday’s news. But folks knew that when they elected Obama and they have no right to be upset now about it.

Elections do have consequences.

NormanF on May 25, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    NormanF,

    LOL, The name of the holiday has probably already been changed on the White House calendar. I know Washington’s Birthday and Lincoln’s Birthday have already been crossed out for Presidents day.

    I am surprised we still have Christmas.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 4:02 pm

I have a hunch that Obama is in for 8 years. Liberals aren’t known for graciosuly or otherwise admitting their mistakes, and in fact, I think that Obama supporters will dig in. With 4 years of court appointees, graft, intimidation, patronage jobs and (I predict) a national disaster (that won’t look like Obama’s fault) looming right around election time, the fix is already in.

DS_ROCKS! on May 25, 2010 at 4:00 pm

    DS ROCKS, I love your attitude, but I think Obama will stay as long as he can. He will try to change the law so that he can stay in there for life.

    He will use Mexican, African and Muslim voters that he has imported plus outright voter fraud to win the next election.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 4:04 pm

      Angie, not sure about the Mexicans. He’s sending troops to the border as I write. Maybe a war on US soil, G-d forbid, will be enough to disrupt this years elections and from there, it’s all downhill for you guys. So sorry.

      mk750 on May 26, 2010 at 3:41 am

    And how would a natural dister be Obama’s fault?

    Pete Bone on May 25, 2010 at 8:26 pm

      Obama is a national disaster.

      Angie on May 26, 2010 at 12:42 am

      The disaster to it won’t be, obviously but his response will exacerbate whatever it is more than Bush vs. Katrina.

      mk750 on May 26, 2010 at 3:39 am

It goes on and on! A second inauguration (private)(Masons), no Pledge of Allegiance, No Prayer Day, no honor and respect for the fallen. A Trojan horse has been placed in this country to bankrupt us, take away our rights, to create dictatorship, socialist, Marxist, communist agenda. He has all the traits of a traitor and an Anti-Christ, except for the fact he likes women. If I recall correctly the Anti-Christ had no desire for women as written in the Bible (KJV). Maybe he is the Beast or something. Who knows, but this is definitively going to lead to our demise and onto Armageddon. He is just part of it. I guess we should be happy then because our redemption draweth nigh!

What do we do? Even though we must do all we can and not sit back- although we know the end result. It’s time for America to exercise the right they were given and create a Militia! We have worked hard to build a Church on almost every street corner and make this country as CHRISTIAN as possible. We will defend that freedom and continue in the path that we were called to take!

Amedeo Bianchi on May 25, 2010 at 4:04 pm

    Amedeo,

    Obama is one step ahead of you. He has already started his citizen militia.

    Obama stated: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 4:13 pm

      Angie, he sounds more like the anti-Christ.

      goldenmike4393 on May 25, 2010 at 4:35 pm

        Right goldenmike, the anti-christ in a position of great power.

        Angie on May 25, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    Amadeo, I agree about the Anti-Christ although as a Jew, I call him the “man of perdition” according to the Book of Daniel. Anyway, the “no regard for women” bit will manifest once he’s fully revealed. He’s a consummate politician and a Moslem so taqiyah comes naturally to him.

    mk750 on May 26, 2010 at 3:45 am

What else should we expect from someone who hates America and her citizens…..Our troops are over there risking their lives to protect his sorry butt and all he can do is show disrespect. As far as I’m concerned we have been a country WITHOUT a leader since he was voted in.

Brenda Justice on May 25, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    You are right Brenda. It is time that we start planning ahead. We need to plan to elect conservatives in the fall and we need to find a good conservative candidate for President that we can all stand behind.

    How about Duncan L. Hunter or his son Duncan D. Hunter?

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 4:29 pm

Norman,

Wasn’t TODAY Christmas?

Today’s the Twenty-Fifth.

So, why wasn’t my stocking filled?

Ho! Ho! Ho! (and a bottle of rum?)

John Robert Mallernee on May 25, 2010 at 4:13 pm

Debbie,

I would love to see you write about Obama’s Civilian National Security Force!

Thanks!

Angie on May 25, 2010 at 4:15 pm

This is so disgusting I have unspeakable ….

bill-tb on May 25, 2010 at 4:18 pm

Anyone recall the last time a President skipped the wreath laying ceremony?

Oscar on May 25, 2010 at 4:32 pm

Reagan skipped it once too, so did Bush 41. I guess they were “so disgusting I have unspeakable,”?

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    DanS,

    It is not just this one instance it is cumulative. Obama continually shows disrespect for Americans, Christians and everyone that is white.

    If you don’t believe me, try reading his own words in Dreams of My Father.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service.[1] First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I.

While he may not be laying the wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier he will be observing the holiday and acknowledging the sacrifice of fallen soldiers.

On Monday, President Obama will make remarks at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, south of Chicago

He’s not dissing our fallen troops. He is honoring them at a different venue. Is the location of that venue more important then the act of acknowledging our fallen soldiers?

P. Stevens on May 25, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    “You have heard then, comrades,” he said, “that we pigs now sleep in the beds of the farmhouse? And why not? You did not suppose, surely, that there was ever a ruling against beds? A bed merely means a place to sleep in. A pile of straw in a stall is a bed, properly regarded. The rule was against sheets, which are a human invention.”

    Surely comrades, our dear leader will speak at “a” cemetery! Surely none of you wishes to see Jones, err Bush, back?!

    Some animals ARE more equal then others!

    Prole on May 25, 2010 at 8:20 pm

And the hits keep coming. So bad.

samurai on May 25, 2010 at 4:45 pm

Obama doesn’t like the military.

The military doesn’t like him either.

I gotta say it: Skipping the ceremony is bad…sending Joey the Clown instead is even worse.

Sam Adams on May 25, 2010 at 4:47 pm

Bush 41 spoke at an American Legion Post and then played golf. Reagan sent a Deputy SecDef., not even the SecDef himself. Outrage anyone? Only now, how typical.

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    Who is BO sending in his place? Rev Wright? BTW, Ronaldus Magnus was at an economic summit.

    BLESS ISRAEL on May 25, 2010 at 5:31 pm

Have you all noticed that he does not go to church anymore. I wonder why? Is it because he does not want to be seen at a Christian church (since he is a Muslim) or is it because he can no longer go to a white hating church?

Angie on May 25, 2010 at 4:55 pm

Reagan didn’t go to church either, gave the excuse it cause too much of a security hassle. Again neither did Bush 41. I can only assume that they were sekrit muslims too.

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    DanS

    Obama is not a secret Muslim. He has said he was Muslim. He was born to a Muslim father, raised by a Muslim step Father and when to a Muslim school.

    And when he did attend a Christian church it was not about worshiping God and Jesus, it was all about hating white folks.

    Go ahead and turn the other cheek DanS, la di da. Dance in a field of flowers and pretend like nothing is happening.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    No, they were secret Freemasons who believe in worshipping a *higher power* to the best of one’s knowledge. NO need for church, the Lodge serves all their spiritual needs. Although church is ok if one chooses.

    mk750 on May 26, 2010 at 3:50 am

P. Stevens, Et Alii:

For me, Memorial Day is, and always will be, the THIRTIETH of May.

So, I don’t care what happens on Monday 31 May 2010, for that is NOT Memorial Day.

I just now learned that, as part of the “Rolling Thunder” motorcyclist’s observance, on Sunday 30 May 2010, veterans of the Phu Lam Signal Battalion (my old unit in Viet Nam) will be briefly meeting in Washington, D.C., at the Viet Nam Nurses Statue near the Viet Nam Memorial.

So, I reckon maybe I’ll call a taxicab and head on down there.

Thank you.

John Robert Mallernee on May 25, 2010 at 5:09 pm

I think an alert needs to go out to the OathKeepers for this ILLEGITIMATE ILLEGAL ALIEN FROM KENYA WHO IS REALLY NAMED BARRY SOETORO…AND FAST!

Bob Porrazzo on May 25, 2010 at 5:10 pm

    Bob,

    Have you seen the video of Obama’s grandmother when she talks about how he was born in her village in Africa?

    Even people that do not speak her language can hear that she clearly states “ne” meaning born.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 5:18 pm

dan s, i assume you understand you are stepping into a somewhat right leaning hornets nest here…your points are taken and acknowledged…

hill billy on May 25, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    Hill billy,

    More like a love nest. Right now I am dancing around in a circle throwing up handfuls of rose petals for everyone to enjoy.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 5:27 pm

So basically objective reality need not apply? This is why conservatism died in the mid-90s and has been replaced by outright crazies. Fortunately the well is so poisoned, it’ll be an ten years before the death cycle is over and you might see some grown ups on the right again. Obama is slightly to the right of Ronald Reagan and is so far from a socialist its funny. Reagan couldn’t make it through a Republican primary today. That is the funniest thing about this whole mess the right has gotten itself into. We have crazies on the left too, Cynthia McKinney, we just don’t nominate them for VP.

Fact is Obama is no different than Reagan or George HW Bush. He might be more to the right of Bush 41 though.

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    DanS,

    I think you may enjoy Obama’s book Dreams of My Father. You can learn a lot about him. He states that he purposely befriended people that were know Marxist. Now why would he do that?

    Also, I don’t know if you have noticed but the things that he is in favor of are Socialist, such as the Health care bill.

    There are many examples, but “right wing” is definitely not one of the labels that Obama wears nor does he want to.

    You can call Obama anything you want (since we are currently still a free country), but that does not make him “right wing”. His policies are socialist and his agenda is communist with a little marxist mixed in. These are just the facts based on the definitions of these terms.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 5:38 pm

DanS, go back to your room, ok? You have just totally made a fool of yourself.

BLESS ISRAEL on May 25, 2010 at 5:36 pm

i didnt say dont apply, i said ur points acknowledged, respectfully.
and exactly how is obama to the right of regan?
ill argue sara palin with you if an article calls for it, right now the article is obama

hill billy on May 25, 2010 at 5:52 pm

Total fool, really now. Let’s see “he befriended Marxists.” That is pretty easy to do on any college campus, anywhere in the world. Why would he do that, to learn about them. I know that’s a trait rare in conservative circles, that whole learn’ thing, but generally those of us who want to improve ourselves try to actually figure out things about the world. Its why we travel, meet new, become exposed to other’s ideas. Kind of what an advancing society does in general. Or you could become withdrawn, paranoid and insular, constantly looking for traitors or RINOs. Whoops I think I just hit on the problem.

No one has yet been able to refute any of the points I made because you can’t. Obama is what used to be called a centrist Republican/Democrat, just like Ronald Reagan.

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Obama himself said he personally sought out Marxists as his friends.

    Angie on May 25, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    “Obama is slightly to the right of Ronald Reagan and is so far from a socialist its funny.”

    DanS

    You know dude, hill billy treated you politely, and perhaps you even had one (1) point, in that, taken by itself, Hussein’s activities on Memorial Day are no different from some other presidents’. (Of course, context matters, and Hussein has already said and done anti-American things that even Carter didn’t do.)

    But then you mess up with your weird leftist crap, while simultaneously uttering nonsense like that quoted at the top of my comment. Then you start getting nasty.

    Go away, DanS, you idiot.

    skzion on May 26, 2010 at 10:18 am

Women screaming and children trying to escape a village on fire.
These are just two of the images that two Palestinian sisters, Fatima and Zeinab Jaber, 65 and 71, live with from an event they witnessed 60 years ago.They are haunted, too, by the memory of their mother, Nuzah, who they recall crying as she rushed members of their family to safety.And they are their last recollections of their home, the village of Deir Yassin, as it was being overrun and destroyed by armed Jewish militant groups.
Jew terrorists hagana stern burned the babies in the ovens infront of their parents then they killed the parents this is just one crime of the millions of crimes jew terrorist hooked ugly noses did to the native people of palestine

resist on May 25, 2010 at 6:04 pm

dan cummon, he is left on abortion, 2 ammend, gay marriage, death pnlty, tax policy, judges, border enforcement, immigration, entitlements, what else, business, wall st regulation, fiscal policy, environment, what else, im thinkin…i know we dont have time or room to argue all but hes left my man..

hill billy on May 25, 2010 at 6:08 pm

So far Obama has only cut taxes, that’s all you can judge him on regarding taxes and he wants to let the Bush cuts expire. Reagan raised them in 1986. Border enforcement, Reagan had an amnesty. Death Penalty is mainly a state issue, and hasn’t really come up. Abortion, what did Reagan ever do except give lip service to the issue. Judges, Sandra O’Connor anyone?

Yes he is in favor of increasing regulation of wall street, taking the regulations back to the level in the 90s. Reagan didn’t de-regulate nearly as much as he gets credit for. Yes Obama is in favor of environmental protection, but so was Reagan when he was governor, and Reagan only had a bad couple years with Watt at DoI, otherwise a wash policywise.

I really don’t think anyone wants to go there on fiscal policy. Especially when you consider that the 8 budgets Reagan proposed equalled more in expenditure than what was actually appropriated by Congress. So yeah, I’d call them a wash. Its always best to look at actual policy and accomplishments and not legends and talk radio bluster. Reagan was a moderate Republican, who in the best traditions totally snowed the social conservatives and hard right of his party. Kind of like Obama does only with the left wing of the Dems.

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 6:29 pm

Oh, and that uber leftist Obama just authorized much greater latitude to SpecOps forces operating in the Middle and Near East. This includes their operations in friendly countries, so they can basically just go out an kill as needed. Yeah, screaming lefty weenie there.

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 6:43 pm

BHO will only go to the wreath laying ceremony when they put up a mosque in Arlington. That way he can pray with his fellow muzzies after he is done dissing the U.S. military. As Odopey said, we are a muslim nation, and I feel quite certain that he wants to expand the influence muzzies have in America.

Remember, our Terrorist-In-Chief wouldn’t wear an American flag lapel pin, he wouldn’t put his hand over his heart during the national Anthem, he sat in Rev. Wrong’s church for 20+ years, and then last Memorial Day he dissed the entire American public by saying that we have failed as an American people to give our military the respect they deserve and the support they need. I’m glad BHO won’t be there. He’s sending the gaff-tastic Biden who, even on his worst day, wouldn’t say anything as anti-American as Odopey would.

Jarhead on May 25, 2010 at 6:51 pm

^^^ I need no further evidence that the right is totally divorced from reality. Enjoy the wilderness boys, because the vast majority of Real Americans will never let you get in power again.

DanS on May 25, 2010 at 6:55 pm

Has anyone read our Declaration of Independence lately and why the Colonists want to separate from England ant the tyrannical King George III? If we do not learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it. This is the first part with excerpts, so it’s not in its entirety, but shows the main points.
?We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. –
?But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, ….it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
?He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance,…., he has utterly neglected to attend to them. (ARIZONA)
?He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
?He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
?He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
? He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
See http://www.prisonplant.com Police State IV)
?For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent.
?He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
?In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
— And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Suzanne W on May 25, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    “— And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

    Suzanne W, you do know that these are the very same words Masons take upon being initiated into their lodges, don’t you? As for “Divine Providence” to them that can mean anyone from Osiris to Mohammed. Almost to a man, the Founding Fathers were 33degree (the highest) members of the Lodge.

    mk750 on May 26, 2010 at 3:58 am

so i oppose the expiration, oppose increasing taxing cap gains and dividends and think it should be lowered to ushackle business, encourage entrapenursip, not tax the small biz people to provide welfare, big screens, cigaretts and babies.
rr was a little soft on the border for me but he picked his battles. regan opposed stem cell therapy of course late term abortion and use of tissue thereof.
clinton and dodd repealled glass stegall so here again i give rr credit for not altho he did encourage
on the environmental thing he really pisses me off because my view is why cant we build a bunch of reactors like the french and be done with it…

hill billy on May 25, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    I agree hill billy, congress is not very good at getting reasonable things done.

    We would not need finance reform from Obama if we just went back to the rules that were in effect before Clinton changed them.

    Angie on May 26, 2010 at 1:09 am

dan the spec ops thing is a good thing, i give him credit, we should have that dimension to out toolkit…the thing that pisses me off about this on the left is ur beloved NYT blabs it…al malwaki braggs he avoided a drone strike by reading a washington post article stating they were on the way…this is not O’s fault rather a similar and bigger left leaning bent in journalism, th press and the educational system

hill billy on May 25, 2010 at 7:09 pm

dan s I, we are not devod from reality, how then do u account for unseatings in 4 states and more to come from us dum americans in th wilderness?

hill billy on May 25, 2010 at 7:11 pm

Yessir, yessir. I remember all the anti-war crazies saying that they supported the troops, they just didn’t support their mission.

OK, here’s a real good opportunity for all the anti-war demonstrators to show they support the troops, and they don’t even have to support the mission! Just publicly denounce BO’s failure to give due recognition to the troops on their day of remembrance. C’mon, all you demonstrators who say you support the troops! Here’s your chance.!

Little Al on May 25, 2010 at 7:21 pm

P. Stevens, you’re not earning your pay from the Obama-ites. Your argument is rather stupid and not worth the money they’re paying you. Is it OK if BO honors the troops at the Lincoln cemetery?

What if the Chinese Communist dictators came to Washington? Do you think Obama would take them to some dive in Chicago to eat, and put them up in his crooked house in Hyde Park? I’ll bet he wouldn’t — they’d be put up in the White House, and would consider it an insult if they were accomodated anywhere else.

Same thing, duh.

Little Al on May 25, 2010 at 7:37 pm

Little Al

as always you make a good point…i think dan s too is a plant, an obama operative. that rascal can work his caps lock like a speed-bag…its jist not so easy for us country pumpkins…

hill billy on May 25, 2010 at 7:51 pm

Shoreline bank is in the spotlight among other ethical and criminal activities… time to diss the troops to do some cleanup in Chicago. Plus Obi Zero just took a vacation the first week of the gulf spill if I remember correctly. This guy is praying he makes it through one term so he can escape prosecution. I suggest pictures of this criminal to be placed on public urinal cakes as one good turn deserves another.

This little boy is the biggest psycho I have ever seen. It has been 307 days since he fielded questions from the press… when he said the cop acted stupidly.

    Obama does not like to answer questions at press conferences because the answers are not printed out on the teleprompter.

Everyone needs to do their research! Two other Presidents have let other WH officials lay wreaths at the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier on Memorial Day and they both were REPUBLICAN:
1983 Reagan let a Defense Department official (W. Paul Thayer) lay the wreath
1984 Bush letVP Quayle lay the wreath–Bush was busy playing golf that day

One President let his VP lay a wreath at The Tomb on Veterans Day—Bush the 2nd in 2007!

    Lee – I thought Reagan was POTUS in 1984. Get your facts straight numbnuts.

Barack Obama= (The sum of years spent in a indoctrination clinic a.k.a. Public Education) – (The lack of school choice). The “under 30″ crowd elected this guy.

Consider this: if these kids spend 12 years in the Public School system- then further their education with 4 additional years of college at some liberal arts institution- that makes a total of 16 years these kids would have inculcated with carnards of leftist ideologues, who wish to subvert America.

A caveat- the “village that it takes to raise your child” may be infiltrated with a 1960’s, hippie-ish, radical agenda. Vote for school choice!

they both have nuclear powered carriers named after them. if the nation knows anything about these 2 its their honor of the country and the fallen…

Why would our Terrorist-In-Chief diss our troops? Because he is not an American who believes America is the greatest country to have ever blessed God’s green earth. He has utter contempt for our military. All you need to do to see how much he hates our military is by watching him lick the muzzies sandles and bow down to them like a good little boy.

B. Hussein Obama also sees the founding of America as racist, and everything since then has been done to keep the black man down. You can see this clearly by how he agrees with the First Beotch who said something about being proud of America for the first time in her life during his Presidential campaign. And then there’s the black panthers in Philly. Also Rev. Wrong, and the list just goes on and on. I guess I also need to call him the Racist-In_Chief.

Maybe he is afraid of ghosts. He skipped the Normandy Cemetery ceremony and now this one. Nice trend as Commander in Chief of showing his support of their sacrifice for our Nation.

Of course he like to lord it over those forced to attend his photo ops, as he did at West Point. barry told the troops:

“Under our constitutional system, my power as President is wisely limited. But there are some areas where my power is absolute.”

But he will be back in DC to see Paul McCartney. The man does have his priorities.

First of Dan, you must not have a job because my 1st check in Jan. 2010 had $40 more per pay period taken out for Federal with holdings – last time I checked that was $$ going to the government. So – where are the tax cuts??? And no – I do not make the $200K – No $150K – No $100K – or whatever it is now to be considered “rich” in this country – according to OB.and BIDEN-it changes just like every word that comes out of their mouths – try – $35K!!!!
Second of all, a “NATIONAL” disaster NOT “NATURAL”.
Finally – WE – the American people are not stupid – Socialism WILL NOT WORK!! Try this experiment with your kids/ employees – or whomever you might have subordinate to you —-if any???
Okay – we are going to have a science test on Friday and we will average the grades of the class and all will receive that grade so everyone gets something.
Well the A’s were mad and the F’s were glad – everyone got a C.
The next week – NO ONE studied and the ENTIRE class failed……Guess what class – you’ve just experienced socialism….when you stop being rewarded for your efforts – who will try??????? – you I’m sure Dan and your friends….right?

TAMC on May 25, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    TAMC,

    According to DanS, Obama is a right wing conservative and in no way a socialist.

    Angie on May 26, 2010 at 12:54 am

    TAMC, DanS is either a complete idiot or an operative. Hussein’s “tax cuts,” last time I checked, were actually “negative taxes” (doles) for particular groups. This has become the in thing for leftists to do.

    W. had the domestic policy of a “progressive,” but even he didn’t nationalize the healthcare system or, prior to that, “jumpstart” the economy with the Porkulous Bill.

    DanS, I repeat that your are either an operative or an idiot. In neither case do you deserve courtesy.

    skzion on May 26, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Debbie- Can you substantiate any of this about Hannity? I would love some documentation to show my friends. They say you’re making wild accusations with nothing to back them up.

K: I have documentation for all of it. It’s all posted. The tax forms don’t lie. Click on the links. Your friends are morons who won’t be convinced even if you had a signed confession from Hannity, as I posted plenty of evidence, but they refuse to believe facts. Your time is wasted on them. They are the ones with NOTHING to back up their denials of the truth. DS

Karla on May 25, 2010 at 10:20 pm

that post doesn’t smell funny does it?

F-22 on May 25, 2010 at 10:32 pm

Obama really thinks he is above America. Face it. We all pretend that he and Michelle are just snobs. While that may be true, their common disdain of whites, Jews, Americans, Christians are the core of the Obamas.

pat on May 26, 2010 at 1:14 am

Debbie, what are your thoughts on the Jewish Task force? There is growing evidence that they have been collaberating with Neo-Nazis.

You know, in Israel on our Memorial day, they sound sirens throughout the country and everything, I mean EVERYTHING comes to a standstill for 2 minutes. People pull their cars over or just stop in the street. Those who are sitting, stand and those who are walking stop and everyone is silent. If you want respect for your fallen, and that is right and proper, you could set an example for your leaders by starting a similar tradition on the local level. Look how the idea of Tea Parties caught on at grass roots level.

    mk750,

    In Israel they know how to do things right. They also protect their airlines.
