    June 6, 2013, the 69th anniversary of "D-Day", the largest invasion ever attempted, where 200,000 Americans stormed the beaches at Normandy to begin the final push to defeat Nazi Germany in WWII. D-Day marked the turning point in WWII in Europe, where the Nazis were engaged in mass murder of Jews and minorities by the thousands.

    Today, European heads of state make it a point to recall and honor the sacrifices of those who landed in Normandy, as do our Presidents....
    well, most of them....

    In the 69 years since D-Day, there are four occasions when the President of the United States chose not to visit the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.

    The occasions were:

    1. Barack Obama, 2010

    2. Barack Obama, 2011

    3. Barack Obama, 2012

    4. Barack Obama, 2013

    For the past 69 years, every American President except Obama have taken the time to honor the memory and sacrifices of the 6,000 American soldiers killed on D-Day. ...Except Obama!

    June 6 2010, Obama had no events scheduled.

    June 6, 2011, Obama met with the National Security team and was interviewed by WEWS Cleveland and WDIV in Detroit about the auto industry - FAR too busy to visit the D-Day memorial.

    June 6, 2012, instead of honoring our fallen soldiers, Obama made a campaign trip to California on Air Force 1 (at our expense) to raise funds for (his) upcoming election.

    June 6, 2013, Obama was doing ANOTHER fund raiser with the multimillionaires in the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in Palo Alto CA, once again at our expense.

    America - Aren't you proud?

    Barack Obama is a national disgrace as a president.

  5. While the ops post may be embellished, Snopes is not a reputable source of rebuttal, its an organ of the mindless left.

    I'm not saying Snopes is a completely unbiased source, especially on controversial issues. But they're good at de-bunking BS chain emails. If you'd like to refute anything in the Snopes page I linked to, please do.

    Kind of a relief when somebody finds a scandal about Obama that's NOT true, isn't it? :supergrin:
  9. This bum is disrespectful of every American past and present.

    There is no one that I have ever known that I feel more contempt for than our current president. He's a disgrace to our country and its fallen heroes. We have lost all respect from other countries for having elected this loathsome, narcissistic pariah to the office of President of this country.

    We get the leaders we deserve. Yes, our country has devolved that much.
