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. His middle name isn’t Hussein because he’s into baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet… The guy hates what America has been about, what America has stood for, and more significantly… what true American heroes have fought and died for… Barack Hussein Obama needs to be fired come November, and somehow the blinded, wanton, entitlement beholding progressive liberal class needs to wake up, less they find they’ve lost their ‘freedom’ to whatever it is they like to do. You think homosexuality and same-sex marriage will be tolerated under that so-called ‘sharia law’? Little Hussein is trying to pave the way for that to some day become reality here, you knuckleheads!

  2. Man… you need to chill-out with a Colt-45 forty…or a bottle of Night Train… or sumthin’… you went and got your bowels all up in an uproar…

  3. As a young Infantry officer just off active duty at the end if the Viet Nam war I joined one of the National Guard Units that took Omaha Beach on June 6th. We still had a handful of individuals in the Battalion who had been in the unit since 1937. One was a cook who’s claim to fame was, according to his memory, serving the first hot coffee on Omaha Beach. He landed in the second wave and saw the chaos on the beach and the troops cold and wet from swimming in and being trapped in the surf under withering enemy fire and thought they needed a little lift, so he ran among the dead gathering canteens and helmets and in a shell hole in front of a knocked out German bunker brewed up some coffee. Then went among the troops giving them a cup. I’m not sure if it was Robert Mitchum’s or that cooks who got the “boys” to go up the bluffs and grasp victory from the jaws of defeat but I’m sure he helped. The least BHO could do was recognize the sacrifice of the thousands of American’s who gave their lives that day and the thousands more who did their duty and defeated one of the greatest evils the world has ever seen. But I guess he is too busy out in Hollywood collecting funds so he can continue to live the life of a “Commander In Chief”

  4. This is what makes me believe he’s out of touch with Americans and, regardless of where he was born, that he lacks what makes an American an American. During the 2nd World War while our grandfathers and fathers literally helped save the world from the Nazis and the Japanese, what what his father doing?

  5. It just goes to show how disconnected from MILITARY SERVICE these political types are.

    The ones who do give speeches, only do so for votes. The ones that don’t just don’t give a crap.

    I am not sure which is worse…

  6. This president has no love for our fallen hero’s. These brave men that advanced under German guns and fell before they even fired a single shot should never be forgotten. However, Obama will know what the term of bravery means. This guy is an enemy of the republic! When will the American wake up?

  7. Ronald Reagan commemorated D-Day just once during his entire eight years in office. He attended attended a major anniversary commemoration in Normandy, just lie Barack Obama. Other than that he issued no other statements on the topic.

  8. This is a sad day when I own president cannot acknowledge what happened 68 years ago, D-Day. Our military and the military of our friends from other country’s wenht through hell tha day. Just wait, something will pop up that concerns the Muslims and you will see our president very focused on that. I wouldn’t put the fire out if he was on fire………sorry!

  9. Well You have to understand, Do You know how difficult it is to talk about Yourself when You are supposed to be talking about something or other that happened a gazillion years ago!, and anyway, none of those guys got Osama, so what’s the big @#$%!!! deal?

  10. That’s even worse than the cross made from rocks that Clinton had put on the beach of Normandy before he stumbled upon them on his walk so the cameras could show him ‘find them” and see what a terrific guy he was as he placed them in the shape of a cross.

  11. I would not want, “this coward” at any military celebration. He has showen his dislike of military persons. If it wasn’t for the military this Monkey of Hee-Haw would try to take control of the Government and turn the US into 3rd rate crap-hole.

  12. And absolutely no one asks Carney or the president about D-Day at the daily press briefing. The State Run Media follows their lead today. Again.

  13. 68 years ago today the President of the US asked all Americans to end their work day at noon (est) and go pray for our soldirs, sailors and airmen….and go home to be among their families….and think about those who died so we may be free.

  14. Given that Obama is not a cultural American; given that it was predominantly white soldiers that gave their lives and limbs and minds that day; given that America helped defeat the fascists, thus winning victory; given that America’s strength bolstered all the allies — is it any wonder he ignores the D-Day invasion?

  15. LMBO!!!

    Are you serious?

    I know, I know………..The only thing that would make you people happy, is if he were home slitting his wrists.

    I know each and every one of you have huge, extensive, appropriate plans for that day…….SMFH

    • Give it a rest. No one wants harm to come to the president.

      And,yes, I’m serious about what I said.

      Oh, yeah: The “you people” and “slitting his wrists” remarks really reveal your immaturity and inability to say something mildly of value.

      One more thing: You don’t know jack about what you’re saying. Makes you one of the many poster kids for the intellectual bankruptcy of the Democrat/regressive/liberal/leftist tribe.

  16. Look, what do you expect from are president, him going to honor anyone on D-day. The only way he goes any place if it is ( ALL ABOUT ME), If you know what I mean. This president is only interested in himself, not the people of this country, hr could care less. That is o.k remember every time he helps things get bad.

  17. What would a “rear echelon pogue” like the pencil necked, metro-sexual Obama know about paying tribute to “men of honor”? He’s not fit to shine their boots. No ethnic pun intended. Go to hell, Mr. President. WE don’t honor YOU, either.

  18. Obama despises Winston Churchill beacuase his Kenyan grandfather was imprisoned and tortured (by Kenyans) as a Mau-Mau spy. He celebrates the Mau-Mau uprising instead of D-Day. No kidding.

  19. BARACK has nothing to prove to me! His actions (lack of) find him poised in the protective cocoon of So. Cal…AGAIN! Last month I fought a 2 hour traffic jam while The Prez went to see the current “Bonnie & Clyde” (George Clooney & Babs Streisand). I hear Barb was wearing a Black Beret! Oh…How Militant! Oh-Bomb-Ma has enlightened all service personnel by his outward contempt. The D-Day objective was Thee Defining moment for the 20th Century. The course of history was augmented and thanks to Stephen Ambrose (RIP) we know more about it than ever! Mr. President, you truly lack any professional leadership and your position as Commander-In-Chief is a preposterous title. Mr. Prez….Squid Hillbillies do better!

  20. You should know that the vast majority of center-right and conservative white Americans feel a closer kinship to the millions of like-minded black Americans than to left wing self loathing white Obamaphile morons like yourself. But of course you are mentally incapable of grasping such a concept due to your deeply ingrained anti-white racism.

  21. Mr. Koffler.
    Thank you for posting this article.
    This president has made his disdain for out military clear.
    Only when it is politically expedient will he utter a kind word for those that give so much.

    Someone might remind him if not for the courage of those that fought and died before us, he would be speaking German now.

      • Only a leftie would say “he’s done it”He’s just the “golfer in charge, of picking brackets, and fund raising.” get a grip!

      • Uhh NO they just put Al CIAduh in charge of LIBYA.

        You know.. the only nation on earth to ever have FREE healthcare, FREE education to the PHD level, rent FREE apartments and state subsidized interest FREE loans whose leader (love him or hate him) was unceremoniously sodomized at rifle point and shot in the street like a dog all under the guise of HUMANITARIAN aid.

        Ok .. they put Al CIAduh, the CIA created terrorist organzation in charge. Obama is just a puppet and hes not even an american citizen never was.

  22. This guy hates the military so much, his is willing to take that chance that his pisses off thousands of veterans across the country. A truly lousy Commander in Chief. What an embarrassment to the U.S. Armed forces to have a arrogant man like this in the White house.

      • Since you seem to make it your business to prowl around here telling everyone that THEY are idiots and to shut up, the mighty Boa will take this moment to point out that you are a simpleton.

        O’Bozo did not “kill” bin Laden. Also, it took him over SIXTEEN HOURS to even give the go-ahead, and even THAT is questionable. There are reports that the decision to actually proceed was made by one of the commanders in the field. O’Bozo had NO interest in pursuing this and the reason is that bin Laden was killed almost 10 years ago but there was never a positive ID made. Even the moron O’Bozo knew that it was most likely a bin Laden “look alike”, much like the “look alikes” of Saddam that used to parade around Iraq. Only after a lot of persuading by his advisors did he finally buy into this, and that was only because they convinced him that if word EVER got out that there was an opportunity to get bin Laden and he passed it up, his goose would be forever more COOKED as far as any re-election.

        So stop your spouting off about what a tough guy the muslim infiltrator is. He is anything but. And you are a buffoon….

        • And in case you doubt what the mighty Boa says, ask yourself this.

          O’Bozo and the marxists screamed constantly about “water boarding” DESPITE the fact that using that tactics was proven to have safed American lives. Yet, he made SURE bin Laden was dead. And then provided absolutely NO evidence that it was him. That is because it WASN’T bin Laden. Obviously there would have been no way to hide that fact had he been taken alive, which could have been more than easily accomplished.

      • No, he didn’t kill Osama Bin Laden, our Navy Seals did. He sat back and watched. He also protects Pakistan, the very country that protected Bin Laden – so you sir should keep your mouth shut.

      • Dr. Pieczenik reiterated the facts on the ground then, back in 2002, that Osama Bin Laden suffered from Marfan’s Syndrome and was in renal failure in 2001. The US CIA paid for Bin Laden’s treatment at a hospital in Dubai who shortly thereafter died. Dr. Pieczenik reported that Osama’s body was then frozen only to be trotted out when it would be most useful to whomever was serving as President at the time.

  23. Mr. Koffler, did you also take President Bush to task for only commemorating D-Day twice during his 8 years in office? That would be 2001 for the WWII Memorial dedication and 2004 for the 60th anniversary.

    Research in the White House archives and various news articles indicate that the standard practice is commemoration on 5th and 10th year anniversaries.

    I’m no fan of President Obama, but I’m also no fan of double standards. He visited Normandy in 2009 for the 65th anniversary.

  24. How sad that so many Americans honored this ingrate and impostor with a vote in 2008. He didn’t deserve it then, and he doesn’t deserve it now. He slithered out of the sewer, and he needs to slither back.

      • Let me guess, you are an angry young person of the non-caucasion decent? Not everyone is a racist because they do not like President Obama. I am white and I do not even like him – oh yes, did you forget he his also white? So does that make me a racist against whites? Anyway, President Obama DID NOT put a bullet in Bin Ladnes head, our Navy Seals did. BTW – President Obama protects the very country that harbored Osama Bin Laden – Pakistan!

  25. WHAT PART OF ” HE DOES NOT GIVE A CRAP ABOUT AMERICA” DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  26. Shame on you Mr President for ignoring D-day… thousand of young Americans gave up their lives to liberate Europe on June 6th… .i grew up near the beaches of Normandy and today as a proud American citizen i honor the lives of those men on this special day…
    i guess mixing with the Hollywood elite is much more fun… shame on you

  27. Who gives a sh@t. Why must this country constantly mark every anniversary of every fuck$%g day in history that some hapless soldier(s) died.

    It just isn’t that damn important people.

  28. President Obama did more than “give a speech” in 2009. He went to Normandy for the 65th anniversary.
    Obama’s predecessor made a “significant” observance only once in eight years, the 60th anniversary in 2994. Earlier presidents also did little to note the occcasion except on the 10-year anniversaries.

  29. Watch out for the bogeyman, he lives in the White House.
    This SOB president is a pathetic soul. The grand children of the soldiers and sailers should march on the White House and paint it black. What a scumbag.
