With the long Memorial Day weekend on the horizon, President Obama is finally addressing one of the great broken promises of his administration: his early pledge to return home to Chicago every six weeks or so.
In 16 months at the White House, the Obamas have been back home just once – in February of 2009. But they plan to make the trip over Memorial Day weekend, an official said. After arriving on Thursday night, they will visit with friends and participate in private events.
On Monday, Obama will make remarks at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, south of Chicago – missing the usual tradition of presidents speaking at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
Vice President Biden and his wife will appear in Obama’s place, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, as well as holding a breakfast for Gold Star families — families whose loved ones died in military service — at the White House earlier that day.
He’s sending Gaffemeister Biden in his place. Ain’t that a hoot? All things considered, Obama doesn’t belong at a place like Arlington anyway. The presence of this anti-American, anti-military fuckwad at one of the most hallowed cemeteries in the world, is an insult to the memory of the those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Let the mutherfucker go to Chicago. The unions/socialist “community organizers” love him there.
