Once again, Obama shows his true feelings--contempt and disdain--for the real Americans who have made this country (and the world) a better place. He's skipping the Memorial Day wreath-laying at Arlington National Cemetery this year because--gosh darn it--he and his wife haven't been to Chicago for a while.
They're taking another vacation--his second one since the BP oil crisis broke in the gulf--and he's delegated the honoring of our nation's war dead to Joe Biden, right along with walking Bo the Dog and bringing in the White House mail and newspapers every morning.
Sources say that he will be rearranging his schedule to make it back to Washington DC in time for a meeting with Paul McCartney the next day, however. Priorities...
Granted, Barack Obama is about as welcome at Arlington as those inbred banjo-pickers from the Westboro baptist "church", but it's unheard of for a sitting president to fluff off our nation's heroes and their survivors just for a vacation, especially in a time of war.
Obama really needs to change his name to "Recess", because he's got no class.
Also culpable, of course, are his loyal followers, most of whom excoriated President Bush every time he dared take a vacation or even tried to play golf. Bush gave up on golf because he felt that it didn't look right to be playing while our troops were at war, but Obama...he's played more games in his first year than Bush did in all eight of his. And he's taken more vacation time, too, all without any negative feedback from the same people who criticized Bush for much less. They even overlook the fact that he's only been to view the oil spill disaster in the Gulf once. But hey--those golf balls aren't going to hit themselves...
I'm disgusted, but I should not be surprised by this. The sort of person who could vote for Obama has never been the sort of person known to demonstrate much logic, consistency or intellectual honesty.
Hope and change, folks. The only things changing though appear to be some peoples' expectations of how a president should act.
