As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Not Scheduled to Commemorate D-Day

It’s D-Day and President Obama is hitting the beaches – of sunny California!

Instead of scheduling a brief event to mark the 68th anniversary of America’s brutal landing on the shores of Normandy, Obama is already on his way to San Francisco, where he will hold two fundraisers before moving on to Beverly Hills to stage two more.

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.

First Lady Michelle Obama, who has made much of her “Joining Forces” campaign to support military families, also has nothing planned for D-Day. She’ll be in New York City for a fundraiser and then in Philadelphia to meet with campaign volunteers.

Obama’s failure to mark D-Day in any significant way is both a shame and a political mistake.

According to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, two critical swing states – Florida and Pennsylvania, are among the top five states in terms of veterans’ population. Within the top twelve are four others – Michigan, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina – all states Obama desperately needs to carry.

  1. D-Day, Our veterans who served our country with such great vigor, fighting for our country and others around the world to regain their liberties, should be honored with great fanfare every D-Day. Any President that doesn’t even a acknowledge them and their sacrifice should be publicly reprimanded by our citizens and congress. Obummer, has to go. Thank GOD, he is going to be on his way out. ONE TERM PRESIDENT, Fraud that he is!!!

  2. Evidently, we elected Obama to do nothing besides campaign and raise money for same! No budgets, no consensus in Congress and an unpopular, unworkable health care plan as his ONLY legacy! Well, you could add the national debt to his list of accomplishments too I suppose.
    Electing Obama will prove to be the biggest mistake this country has ever made! Celebrating national events like D-Day is the last thing on this hollow man’s mind!

  3. He just figures all the D-Day veterans will be gone and won’t vote for him anyway.

    His heroes are those parasites who sit on the a$$ and expect others to provide for them.

  4. Obama does not care about US history especially things that are associated with our Military. Like Michelle said during one of the Flag Ceremonies to Obama “All this for a Flag” and he smiled of course. So, it`s entirely plausible that he would elect to skip a D-Day Celebration or any mention thereof. Like one person said in this comment section “The only “D” Obama enjoys is D for “Debit Day”.

  5. “Obama failed to mark D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation…”. Be thankful. He’d probably try to take credit for it.

    • He will have his D-Day in Novembr. DEFEATED DAY. We will all celebrate and each year make it a federal holiday that we got rid of the communist. Schools, banks, retail stores, auto dealerships, the courthouses, congress, grocerys tores, gas stations, etc. will all be closed as it will be a total celebration for Americans. WE WILL NEVER FORGET !!!

  6. Just another manifestation of the attitude Obama and his wife demonstrated on that memorable “all this hoopla for a stupid flag” event.

  7. Perhaps O’s seen the “writing on the wall” and is taking advantage of free vacations while the rest of us pay – – support Wisconsin, celebrate D-Day — Apparently American causes are for Americans !

  8. Obama is a hack and obviously has disdain for this country.

    Obama 2012 – When everything that you have worked hard for in life should go to someone else.

  9. If you go to the “National Archives” website, you will see that today’s highlighted document is the message Gen. Eisenhower sent to the troops in advance of D-Day (http://www.archives.gov/historical-docs/todays-doc/index.html?dod-date=606)

    Read it over and as you do, imagine not only how those words would have inspired our military back in 1944, but how pertinent they are to “battling” the enemy in the WH/Congress this summer/November:

    “You are about to embark on a Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.”

    “The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.”

    “Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.”

    “The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!”

    “We will accept nothing less than full Victory!”

    “Good luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”

    . . .and thank you to all those who have Stood Up, Spoke Out and Fought Back for our Country–God Bless you all!

  10. He is so for the military, that he doesn’t have the time to give any thank you for one of the greatest victories in the history of modern warfare (at the time). He would rather go to a fundraiser so he can stay in office and completely ruin the country our Patriots maintained back then.

    I still believe that a sci-fi book had it right. To have voting rights, you must have served the country in some fashion which could cause you to give your life, such as the military, not just getting elected to office. Also, you must vote to keep your voting privileges or to even be elected to a national office.

  11. And your point? After 3+ years of this only the simplest (democraps) of brains would need a reminder of how he was for our efforts to save the world in WWII before hes was indifferent and ignored our greatest generation. I hope all the WWII vets see, understand and vote accordingly (conservative vets that is), since the passed democrat vets will continue to vote in perpetuity.

  12. I’m no fan of Obama, but gimmie a break. Does the President have to do something for D-day every single year? Doing a little speech or something on anniversary years divisible by 5 is fine, then something bigger on years divisible by 10 or 20 is all anyone should expect.

    • Yes he MUST say something. He is President of this great country because someone died fighting for our freedom. So wake up and salute the veterans and be thankful.

    • Oh geez…now we have a math “wizzz” amongst us. ‘A little speech or something’…? You sound like a sarcastic, infantile little person with a brain that has been burned out by playing too much Mario. I expect ‘something’ (not a tweet or a text to my mobile.me account) EVERY YEAR by every American president regarless of his religion, political affiliation, or color of his skin! Every year, dammit, every year!

    • yes every damn year. If our military did not do what they did in Normandy. you would be living in a communist coountry. You almost are.

  13. I think that P-BO is a coward who does nothing but cater to his own desires. Here we have a day that celebrates the men and women who sacraficed everything for a of us and this “President” can’t even acknowledge these valient soldiers. He is a coward and a disgrace to the rest of us Americans. I say screw him!!!

  14. Obama despises the military and naturally enough, shuns any celebration of their victory. But he’ll tell you how brave he was “getting” bin Laden. This clown-president MUST be thrown out in November. He’s a disgrace!

    • Any yet, some Amercians will still vote for this poor excuse of a president. Wake up and put America first and your party second.

      • Remember Wisconsin. There were plenty of true American patriots who crossed party lines to embrace freedom from servitude to the state. Those of us who live in Realsville are wide awake. We’ll never change the minds of the takers or the indoctrinated drones, but there are more of us than there are of them. Count on it.

  15. This should surprise no one. There is no respect for this country and how we got to the point we are. There is no love for “his” military. They are just his pawns. While I am dissapointed in our commander in chief – I am not surprised.

    Go make some money from people who have earned a lot, that oh by the way he is supposed to dislike and want to take even harder instead of honoring the thousands who gave there life against an evil man and regime.

    My admiration goes out to all those boys that fought and died or lived that day!!!

  16. Barack Muhammad Barry Soetero Obama is not interested in the United States of America and its history. He is only interested in his own self, the friends he has in the Nation of Islam, Jeremiah Wright, Islamic Muslim Brotherhood friends, uniting with anti-American people and sipping tea with them, making money, having popularity, etc.! The man is a egocentric to the core, full of “himself” and cares less about anyone else. The man has been a disgrace to this nation and to his ethic background groups, white and black. I would be so ashamed of the man if I were 100% black – only some, now, but my racial group he would not even “look” at much less show any interest in. He has divided America, almost bankrupted us, and goes on vacations and golfs more than any person ever in past Presidency’s!

  17. Standard practice for presidents, including Bush. Obama went to Normandy for the 65th. For the 61st anniversary, Bush hosted a concert at the White House to celebrate Black Music Month, and did not recognize the D-Day significance of the date. No one cared.

    • Re: Bush on 61, if true, than he made a huge mistake also. Goes with the territory – man up, be President and say something. And not sure if you noticed but the piece is about the current POTUS, not Bush. Lastly, I care. Don’t include all of us in your disinterest in such a significant day.

  18. This is what I would expect from a Community Organizer who hates the Military. The best day this Country will ever have besides D day will be the day He is thrown out of office.

  19. No Surprise. Obama is the most Anti-Patriotic – Anti Constitutional President ever to set foot in the office of the presidency.

  20. Barrack Hussein Obama is a Narcissist and therefore his neglecting of showing respect for our veterans is part of his narcissistic personality. Michelle Obama is no different. She gets in front of the camera and pretends to be aligned with Veterans Groups but this is only because it’s an Election Year. America is the Greatest Nation in the Universe and it all started with Patriots who were willing to stand up and fight. It’s been that way from the beginning and it will be that way until the end. Previous Administrations understood that a Strong Military can be used as a Deterrent but only if it is perceived as such. Obama simply doesn’t get it.

  21. What do we expect of Mrs. Obama, something like sincerity. Please spare me the sanctimonious, “I care,” When a politician or his lawyer wife says something like that, veterans better grab their wallets and head for the hills.
    Michelle only cares about Michelle and her Jimmy Choo’s.
    The President and his lawyer wife are two of the most plastic people on earth. So much for the philosophy of Socialism when your getting fund-raisers thrown in Hollywood by famous actors.
    How much did it cost tax payers to pay for Air Force One and the entire Obama entourage? How much did it cost to send their daughter and the Secret Service entourage to Mexico for her Sidwell Friends Spring Break? How does one go from not having a pot to urinate in or a window to throw it out of before they are a Senator and end up millionaires in less than 10 years? This sure as heck doesn’t sound like a man and women who embrace Socialism or Communism. Well, their philosophy is more akin to a Soviet style Oligarch than anything else.

  22. At least the 69th and 70th anniversaries of the D-Day Invasion — Operation Overlord — will be presided over by someone with a sense of history and patriotism, Willard “Mitt” Romney.

    Obonehead has proven to be an inept a mistake that could have ever been elected president! The disgraceful fraud is in [it] for reasons other that the preservation of the Nation, but seemingly for it’s destruction!!! He seems to be intent on displaying how little [pride] he has for America and its historical traditions!!!

    Never vote for a democrat — NEVER!!!

  23. The O-Bamas are fighting for their right to fly around the world on a custom built 747 and have $100,000 date nights in NYC. The sacrifices of a bunch of white folks 68 years ago are not nearly as important as rasing money for their next re-election campaign.

  24. Barrack Hussein Obama is a Narcissist and therefore his neglecting of showing respect for our veterans is part of his narcissistic personality. Michelle Obama is no different. She gets in front of the camera and pretends to be aligned with Veterans Groups but this is only because it’s an Election Year. America is the Greatest Nation in the Universe and it all started with Patriots who were willing to stand up and fight. It’s been that way from the beginning and it will be that way until the end. Previous Administrations understood that a Strong Military can be used as a Deterrent but only if it is perceived as such. Obama simply doesn’t get it. He never has, and he never will. May God Bless Veterans of All Eras.

    • Barack Hussein Obama — the answer to your question is simple as that!!!

      Never vote for a democrat — NEVER!!!

  25. Why should the Obama’s let a little D-Day Victory celebration or a mere mention, interrupt their fundraising efforts. The Obama’s priorities began and end with themselves, not America and certainly not with our Servicemen and women.
