    Yet more lame leadership from Obama.

    Instead of commemorating the 66th Anniversary of D Day, Obama chose to celebrate July 4th at Ford's theater for a TV special.

    President Obama is leading the country in two wars – three if you count the global war on terror – so you’d think he would be pretty focused on military matters. But not enough, apparently, to remember one of the bloodiest and most heroic days in U.S. military history.

    Yesterday of course was the 66th anniversary of D-Day, when U.S. and British troops trudged gallantly onto beaches of Normandy under remorseless German fire – perhaps even more intense than that incurred by Secretary of State Clinton from Serb snipers in Bosnia.

    But there was not a mention of the day by Obama; not even a press release or an eek on the White House blog.

    Instead of commemorating June 6, the president PRETENDED it was July 4, heading over to Ford’s Theater to witness a performance, titled “America Celebrates July 4th at Ford’s Theatre.” The event was taped for broadcast to air, oddly, on July 2 on ABC.

    “After all, it was exactly 234 years ago that a group of patriots — farmers and merchants, lawyers, physicians — pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to an improbable experiment called America,” Obama said...

    I would have said that this was unbelievable, but sadly, it is the expected MO from this Unpresidential President.

    He'd better watch out. Hillary brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama just two years ago, and now he's visiting Ford's Theater? What was he thinking?

    As I've said before, he combines the worst traits of Nixon, Carter and Bush II combined - to which I should also add Bill Clinton. He's a Superfecta of the Worst Qualities.

    It ceases to amaze me that obamas advisers are so DUMB! You would think since he took so much heat for is stupid moves on Memorial Day he would not have blown this one off too.

    He should stop hiring his friends for advice and get some real political advisers to advise him.

    He's congenitally unable to do that. His entire zeitgeist is to be propped up by sycophants who stroke his ego.

    Oh no - it's the end of the world! Yet another tremendous Obama flubber! Shameful!


    Oh wait. Didn't Obama deliver speech in Normandy for D-Day in 2009?

    But...he's NOT COMMERATING 2010!

    Fire him.


    Can we retroactively ream Bush a new asshole for not celebrating every D-Day (I can find any rightwing outrage from then, perhaps y'all can manufacture some?) I believe he only commemerated it in '01 and 04....rest of the years, he spent in meetings and, once at a concert (how dare he!).

    Wonder what Clinton did?
