Re: Breaking! Obama cancels memorial day speech. Unprecedented -- first president to do this!
This is pretty disgusting, I AM in Chicago and attended a Memorial Service, did it rain, yes it did, it was drizzling and then a little rumble. The weather excuse is nothing but bullcrap

I live in Indiana..not to far from the storm. It was bad and I guarantee you that you wouldn't have stood, or made others stand out in it.

It was calling for air to ground lightening and hail.

You guys ought to give the President a break once in awhile.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 987565



Ok, if the weather was bad, how about it he had postponed it till after the storm had passed. He could still give the speech even right now. What is stopping him from saying his appreciation to our military? Pretender in Chief.

There is a lot of trouble going on in the world today.

Remember on 9/11/01 when the World Trade Center was "attacked" and President Bush was in Florida reading a children's book at a grade school? Bush was severly criticized for not immediately responding to the attack.

Read page 1 of today's GLP and tell me the world is not "going to hell in a handbasket."

President Obama has a lot to contend with today.

The speeches, etc. are not that urgently important.

Then if he has that much to contend with why has he not come out to say something? He could have taken the time for his excuse for the weather and said Thank you for our Miitary. Short Sweet. I'm sorry but this is just an out for him and another excuse.

"Scenes from the great storm: People trudging barefoot across flooded fields, taking shelter in available vehicles. The wreath Obama laid earlier blown over. Flash flood-type pools of water on the road. Sharp bursts of lightning. Everyone, needless to say, is drenched."

I think this Israel crisis is a lot bigger than we think. With Netanyahu cancelling his meeting and Obama canceling his speech, I think there is something really big going on behind the scenes.

Re: Breaking! Obama cancels memorial day speech. Unprecedented -- first president to do this!
NOT the first president you sack of fucking shit.


Origins: Memorial Day, now observed on the last Monday of May, is the day of the year set aside for Americans to commemorate the men and women of the United States who died while in the military service. On Memorial Day the President of the United States traditionally visits Arlington National Cemetery, where America's honored dead are interred, to deliver a speech in remembrance of those who died in service to their country and to lay a memorial wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

News that President Obama would be spending the 2010 Memorial Day weekend in Chicago rather than attending services in Arlington were attended by claims (like the example cited above) that he would thus become the first U.S. president to skip the Arlington wreath-laying ceremony since the inception of Memorial Day. This claim is inaccurate: On several occasions in just the last thirty years, U.S. presidents have been elsewhere on Memorial Day (either vacationing or attending to other presidential duties), while other administration officials represented them at the wreath-laying ceremony:

* In 2002, President George W. Bush was in France on Memorial Day and participated in ceremonies at Normandy (site of the D-Day landings) honoring the U.S. soldiers who fought and died in World War II. In his place, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

* President George H.W. Bush (himself a World War II veteran) attended no ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery during his four years in office. In 1989 he was in Rome on Memorial Day (where he led observances at an American military cemetery south of that city), and from 1990 through 1992 he spent the Memorial Day weekend vacationing in Kennebunkport, Maine, while Vice-President Dan Quayle laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

* President Ronald Reagan was away from Arlington on Memorial Day on four occasions during his eight years in office: In 1981, he (who had been seriously wounded in an assassination attempt six weeks earlier) spent the Memorial Day weekend at his ranch in Santa Barbara, California, while Vice-President George H.W. Bush laid the wreath at Arlington. In 1983, he attended a summit meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia, while Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Thayer represented the administration at the wreath-laying ceremony. In 1987, he spent Memorial Day at the Camp David presidential retreat while Navy Secretary James Webb participated in the wreath-laying ceremony. And on Memorial Day 1988, he was out of the U.S., attending a summit meeting in Moscow.

* (NOTE: President Bill Clinton has no entry in this list because he attended Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington each year throughout his eight years in office.)

On Memorial Day 2010, President Obama is scheduled to honor America's fallen heroes with a speech at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery near Chicago, while Vice-President Joe Biden takes his place at Arlington.

Wow...sure is strange how all this crap keeps happening when he's in the spotlight...killing flies, rodents running back and forth in front of him when he's speaking...now a huge storm to cancel his plans.
Sure does look like messages are being sent from some higher being, if ya ask me!
With what has happened today with Israel..this is no coincidence.
Wouldn't it be a hoot if he got struck down like Arial Sharon did?!


Let's not forget the sky darkening when he quoted a verse from the Bible and THEN a demon opens and slams the White House door behind him.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 903601


I didn't see or hear about those things happening!
I've thought from the first time I saw him speaking ( he was trying to get the Party Nom. ) that he was no good..all I see is black stuff in his mouth when he talks...can't watch him, but very briefly, because it just creeps me out too much!
Such beautiful words, being spoken with such a vile mouth...

From my foreign perspective i would say Clinton was by far your best president in my lifetime, thats since 1982...
 Quoting: 2010

I have to agree with ya...
The 90's were very good to me...economy was booming...made money hand over fist!
People still were able to have a life then...were not slaves, just to be able to exist.

I wish he could come back.... :(

I don't get this statement. Of all the speeches he could give during his presidency this is the most symbolic. He would not be president if it wasn't for our vets who kept freedom alive. FREEDOM DOESN'T COME FREE!!!
