Four times in 69 years!!
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 is doing ANOTHER fund raiser with the multimillionaires
in the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in Palo Alto CA , once again
at our expense.
Aren't you proud?
