FW: Arlington

This just kind of says it all

Well said!

Subject: Arlington

This is a forward, not original, wish it was. 
Dear Mr. Obama,

Thank you for not going to Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day. 
There is something very sacred about that place and about that day.
Those who bled and died for this country deserve to be honored and saluted by people who love their country, honor their sacrifice, and will truthfully state where they were born!

You don’t belong there. 

Thank you for realizing that and for going to be with your friends of like mind in Chicago.

holier-than-thou in the morning.

Your friends of like mind? Like all those dead veterans at the Lincoln Memorial Cemetery? Shouldn't they be turning over in their graves that the duly elected and natural born President of the United States should come pay them a visit on Memorial Day?

Well seeing how Obama's seen the caskets unloaded from the planes while George W. Bush was trying to keep the whole thing under wraps, I'd call it even.

And for what it's worth, if attending Memorial Day functions at Arlington Cemetery makes you a proud patriot, Bill Clinton is fuckin' Captain America.

Sainted Zombie Reagan and W both skipped Mem Day ceremonies are Arlington and sent someone else in their stead, but amazingly, Republics were totally silent about that. It's OK If You're a Republican (IOKIYAR).

BHO attempted to attend a service at a cemetary in his area and Joe Biden went to Arlington. That's called a "double dip" or 2 for the price of one.

More distracting nonsense from rightwing thinktanks. Really there's so much else to concern ourselves with; this kind of junk is just stupid.

ferschitz, Bush Sr. (who actually did serve in active duty in WWII) never visited Arlington. He always sent Quayle, just like Obama sent Biden.

Thanks, last Anon poster re the info about Bush Senior; I forgot about that, too. But as we all know here: It's OK if you're a Republican.

It's so annoying to watch the knee-jerk reactions by righties, but nothing new. It's been this way forever, but esp so since Clinton and Monica. It's ALL ok if you're a Republican, but if you're a Democrat: forget it.

Just like Helen Thomas being hounded out of her job as a WH reporter. What Thomas said is questionable, but she admitted a wrong-doing and apologized. But yeah, right: she's a Democrat, so she HAS to go. Pat Buchanon, who engages in HATE speech all day long: IOKIYAR!
