Put it this way … the reason you are reading this in English is because of the sacrifice of these GREAT men who sacrificed their lives for your freedom. This country owes a debt of gratitude to the Armed Forces; so we can stop acting like “WE” are entitled to something “WE” didn’t earn.
However … <deep breath> … I hoped that it wasn’t true, but after looking through the White House and Barack Obama websites there was not ONE mention honoring the D-Day Anniversary yesterday. The White House website did run the YouTube video from three years ago of the President speaking in Normandy … but I guess it just wasn’t that important to honor these amazing heroes THIS year.
What was important you might ask? Well, let’s just take a look at President Obama’s schedule which was posted on the White House website: http://www.whitehouse.gov/schedule/president/2012-06-06
Really, Mr. President?
A campaign event (never mind what the event was for) ……… but a campaign event took all of your time that you couldn’t even recognize these men who gave so much? It sickens me that you even call yourself a leader of the United States of America. You are a fool, a political buffoon really, and a man who needs to find a new job in January 2013. Maybe raising money for Kenya by doing personal appearances on your own dime? Hmmm, it’s at least something to think about.
Forever a patriot …
