Obama Not Scheduled to Commemorate D-Day

White House Dossier

It’s D-Day and President Obama is hitting the beaches – of sunny California!

Instead of scheduling a brief event to mark the 68th anniversary of America’s brutal landing on the shores of Normandy, Obama is already on his way to San Francisco, where he will hold two fundraisers before moving on to Beverly Hills to stage two more.

Obama failed to mark D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation both last year or the year before. He did give a speech in 2009, the 65th anniversary of the event.

First Lady Michelle Obama, who has made much of her “Joining Forces” campaign to support military families, also has nothing planned for D-Day. She’ll be in New York City for a fundraiser and then in Philadelphia to meet with campaign volunteers.

    and moron.org put up a post complaining that the USA spends to much money killing terrorists instead of honoring the 5,000+ Allied soldiers that died this day 68 years ago so the could insult veterans in englis!

    and that was just the first day storming Normandy…it got much worse…

    If you have 13 minutes, THIS is how you commemorate D-Day

    Then again, it might lose something being delivered by a spineless, feckless, SCOAMF purple lipped musloid shithead. From a teleprompter, to boot.

    The Choomer and Mooch SHOULD be off at their perpetual fundraisers and away from view. And if anyone is STOOPID enough to give those two grifters money, they should do so.

    May the Obozos use that money to buy a retirement home this January in the foreign country of their choice.

    I don’t want this narcisstic POS azzwipe doing any commemorating of the event. It would ruin the solemn reflection of this day for all Americans. And probably the British, Canadian, French, Polish, and Norwegians who took part in this feat of arms as well.

    Jeeze cut him some slack you guys. I mean, he wasn’t even alive then. He had nothing to do with Operation Overlord. He did not take out one Nazi, nor did he personally give the order to take out one Nazi. Why the hell should he give a crap about a military anniversary he had nothing to do with?!

    @Roger Smith & Klaus Heisler — Had the socialists not invaded France in 1940 at the behest of Der Führer, then those boys wouldn’t have had to defend it, now would they?

    The National SOCIALISTS started the damn war. The Allies finished it. You can attribute all of the death and misery directly to Hilter and his liberal left-wing politics.

    BHO did celebrate D-Day. His version is called “Donation Day”, and he celebrates it all the time.

    Bay Area Patriots/SF Tea Party was there to welcome him to the financial district–where BHO worked overtime turning those 1%-ers into 99%-ers by collecting up all their loose change.

    @Too Much Time: “The National SOCIALISTS started the damn war.”

    Again – it’s a pop culture reference. But, in point of fact, the British and French started WWII by declaring war on Germany. Prior to that, it was just Germany vs. Poland (and within a few days, it was Germany & the USSR vs. Poland), there was no “World” aspect to it. Interesting that the Brits and French so respected their promise to defend Poland that they kinda overlooked the Soviet troops.

    And to be precisely accurate, it really wasn’t a “World” war until Japan attacked the US and the European holdings in Asia. Prior to that, it was just a really big European war, and a Sino-Japanese war.

    EW is full of crap.

    GWB commemorated D-Day every year of office and ALSO the last four years out of office, with some sort of speech or commentary – not necessarily in France – but nonetheless, memoratives were given by the former President.

    I get so sick of these trolls.

    One of the local talk radio guys this morning was talking about Obama’s coming to CA. Naturally, the idiot is landing at LAX at rush hour then taking Marine One to the VA Hosp in LA to hop in his car and once again muck up traffic on LA’s west side. For those of you who don’t know,street traffic in that area on a good day flows at approx 5 mph during rush hour. And, the 4th game of the Stanley Cup Finals is being played in downtown LA tonight. All those folks driving in to downtown are adding to the mess. Anyway, this radio host referred to Obozo’s trip as his “Cash grab & go”. Very appropriate. I cannot wait until this jerk is evicted from the White House!
