The White House says Obama and his family will travel to their hometown on Thursday and stay through the weekend.
On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.
In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington.
Are you serious? A wartime president is going to Snub Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial day, and simply hand the honors over to Joe “Fucking” Biden, so he can go Chill out with Buddy Bill Ayers in Chi-Town?
FUCK YOU President Obama! We still have troops dieing in Iraq, and Afghanistan (tho you promised that would be all done…hell if we’d given President Bush, not that I have much love for him, a few more Months he probably could have had Iraq Stabilized and free of US troops.) You get plenty of time off, and lord knows you hit the Golf Courses often enough. But guess what, unlike the rest of your odd little life, this is a REAL job, we expect you to work hard, and and do what needs to be done.
Giving veterans, and families of fallen soldiers the finger is NOT one of them!
Oh and then there’s this?
Paul McCartney is set to be honored by President Barack Obama in a June 2 ceremony at the White House, where the legendary rocker will be given the Gershwin Prize, a lifetime achievement award for contributions to pop music. The likes of Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Jack White and Dave Grohl will all pay tribute to Macca in an event that will be hosted by the President and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Seriously? You can hand off honoring our war dead (and not just past war dead, but people who have died under your command) to your ass hole racist Vice President, but you can honor a British Musician who hasn’t produced anything worth listening to since somebody shot his commie buddy Lennon?
Seriously? You’re an asshole!
