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

Obama to Skip Scalia Funeral

What a disgrace. The funeral is Saturday. We wrote over in LifeZette that no president has skipped the funeral of a sitting Supreme Court Justice in 60 years.

So, it’s going to be 63 degrees and sunny on Saturday in Washington. Now what do you think Obama will be doing? Gosh, I hope not.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest had no explanation. Vice President Biden will attend instead, missing his weekend of golf in Delaware.

Sucks to be the VP.

  1. He and his shemale wife have no class. Can not do the right thing, because they do not know right from wrong.

    What a bum the morons voted in office.

  2. Just when you think Obama can’t do anything more disgraceful to the Office of The President, he surprises you. On second thought, no surprise.
    Maybe he’s busy attending his ” constitional responsibilitys “

  3. Back in the 1960’s Vietnam War era (Disclaimer: I was in the military then) Joan Baez withheld that portion of her income tax that she calculated was spent on that war.

    I feel the same way about my portion that goes towards Josh Ernest’s salary. I know it’s futile and that Joan lost her case.

    But it’s still disgusting.

  4. It’s a big deal. One of nine dies, one of only 9 Supreme Court Justices dies, it’s a big deal.

    He should go, there shouldn’t be any doubt that the POTUS would attend.

    • The way I see the reason for his absence is the tough rules in the Catholic Church which does not allow an unordained person to give the homily or stand up at the ambo and sing Amazing grace while swaying to the music and belting out the words. Decorum…a hard thing to understand. He prob doesn’t want to hear the judge’s stand on life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness either. And no cop shot the judge on the street so what’s the prob with playing golf on a sunny Saturday morning?

  5. No surprise here!! He forced himself to spit out some platitudes about Justice Scalia a few days ago but NOW he’s letting us all know his TRUE feelings about the conservative ideology!!!

    • Because he threatens loved ones lives. Just a page from the Clinton play book.
      ……
      I’m just not surprised that his pleasure is more important than his presidential duties/obligations.

  6. Obama probably would like to be dancing on Justice Scalia’s grave!

    Two months ago, during oral arguments in an affirmative action case, Scalia suggested that Black students ‘might belong at less rigorous schools than their white peers, and that perhaps the University of Texas should have fewer black students in its ranks’.

    I, for one, happen to agree with Justice Scalia’s argument. A large percentage of Black students cannot even maintain the minimum grade requirement after their first year at a 4 yr. University after transferring from a 2 year community college.

    Still waiting for Obama’s academic records to be unsealed!

    • I am waiting for his academic records too, Girly. And the only one who has questioned Obamas birth- and academic records is Trump so maybe….Or, if a vengeful Hillary loses, maybe…
      Anyhow, perhaps the Scalia family do not want the Obamas attending the funeral so they never invited them. I can understand that, who would like these hypocrites there ?

  7. Maybe President Obama will reconsider if a sports championship team decides to attend the funeral. He has never missed a sports team yet. Plus, if the funeral mass was moved to Aspen then Michelle would be there.

    I wonder if the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception refused to cover the religious symbols or if the President refused to allow the Bishop to check his scalp for the 666 mark prior to entering.

    The President has no one to blame but himself for the lack of civility that occurs in Washington during his administration. Not attending Justice Scalia”s Funeral Mass is just another example that historians will use as an example.

    Justice Scalia’s funeral mass will just be more beautiful without the Obama’s in attendance. God Bless Him

        • No doubt, as happened at Georgetown University. If I were a member of the Scalia family, I would vote to ban Obama from showing up at Justice Scalia’s funeral, or even show up at the Supreme Court for the repose viewing. The Justice was far too fine a man and a patriot to have Obama sully the occasion with his presence.

  8. Classless and clueless the Obama’s are. What a rebuke to all the decent blacks who voted for him.
    I hate that he represents this country.

  9. Wait, wait, wait, it’s been a full 24 hours and change, and no one’s mentioned Yogi Berra?

    I swear, I go away for a couple of days and everyone forgets how to smile.

    Anyway, per the Sage of St. Louis:

    “Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.”

    Here’s hoping that it turns out to be prophetic, in this case.
