Obama Not the 1st President to Miss Memorial Day at Arlington

Radio and TV talker Glenn Beck (on May 25) said, “Obama is skipping out on a Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington Cemetery because he’ll be in Chicago on vacation.” On his show, Beck incorrectly asserted that the president “has decided not to honor our troops on Memorial Day.”

Beck said, “Maybe this has happened before. I don’t recall it.”

Only a cretin of the highest order would be stupid enough to say things so patently false and easily debunked. And if he’s not this stupid, then he is clearly and most certainly one of the most reprehensible creatures ever to use mass media to make himself wealthy while knowingly misleading those who are all too willing to be misled.

It’s an unforgivable smear on the gravity, dignity, and importance of this day of somber remembrance. I couldn’t let it pass.

  1. I agree with you in the sense that whether or not Obama found it feasible to attend is not important. As scared as that place and the Day are, there are legitimate reasons to not be there. As reprehensible as I find BO to be, I have no problem with his not being there every year. There are far more important tings for us to be concerned with.
