Obama Shames Himself #651

June 7, 2012

It’s D-Day and President Obama is hitting the beaches – of sunny California! Obama failed to mark D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation both last year or the year before

Obama shames himself again. Essentially making a mockery of any effort to make himself seem “military friendly”.

Forgetting D-Day is like forgetting calls to prayers to Muslims.

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.

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.

Obama’s failure to mark D-Day in any significant way is both a shame and a political mistake.

According to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, two critical swing states – Florida and Pennsylvania, are among the top five states in terms of veterans’ population. Within the top twelve are four others – Michigan, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina – all states Obama desperately needs to carry.
