President Obama Skips D-Day Observation To Hold Fundraiser

According to www.whitehousedossier.com, President Obama did not schedule even a brief event to commemorate the 68th Anniversary of D-Day.  The website goes on to say that President Obama

failed to mark D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation both last year or the year before. He did give a speech in 2009, the 65th anniversary of the event.

Let me think about this:  President Obama needs to raise money for his campaign, AND he needs the vote of the veterans.  Don’t you think that just maybe he could have scheduled something to commemorate the date?  I did an internet search, and I watched 2 news programs today, and I have not found anything about the President commemorating the date.

Granted, several former presidents didn’t always commemorate the date either, but I think that, especially as heated as this election is getting, it would have been in the President’s best interest to at least say something about the date.

His actions tend to make this person think that he doesn’t care about the veterans who give their all for our country.  I hope this isn’t the case, I really do.

President Obama says that he cares about our veterans;   Mr. President, sometimes actions DO speak louder than words.  I’m just saying (or typing, which, by coincidence, is an action).

This story brings to mind a photograph that was floating around the internet a few years ago that shows President Obama, Hillary Clinton, New Mexico’s governor and another individual standing in front of a flag, all with their hands over their hearts except President Obama.  Many claimed, based on the photo, that the President did not have a love or respect for his country.   (Snopes has the real story the picture)

I am hoping that our country, whether through the current administration or through the next one, gets us out of debt, out of wars, and out of desperation.
