Records are funny things
... when we discover that one person had been able to do something 4
times when all others have never been able to accomplish it in the 69
years that records have been kept, we are inclined to think that that
person must be pretty special. But, as just stated, records can be
misleading (but read this through to the end)
Every year the French have a 4 day celebration in Normandy complete with
American uniforms, tanks, jeeps and guns. They still honor the Americans
who died there ...
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.
marked a turning point in WWII in Europe... 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)
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
America - Aren't you proud?
Four times in 69 years!!
SHAME ON AMERICA FOR ELECTING A NON-VETERAN PRESIDENT WHO DOES NOT
DESERVE TO BE THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF: HE IS ABSOLUTELY A DISGRACE TO ALL
WHO FOUGHT FOR THIS NATION AND GAVE THEIR LIVES.
It is a good story and
one most Obama haters would believe. But it is not true. Per
snopes.com, this email (or something quite similar) has been circulating
for a while. It is ambiguous in that it could refer to any one of
several celebrations and monuments. The first president to attend
was Ronald Reagan in 1984. Not only did Obama attend, but he
attended twice -- more than any other president.
