Stupid, crass, insulting… That’s what I think of President Obama’s decision to take off on his vacation and not attend the Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknowns. It’s a clear sign that, in spite of his rhetoric, our military men and women just don’t rate very highly in his priority list. In short, whenever he’s mentioned his high regard for and support for our military, it’s just words.
I’m hardly surprised that he’s decided to blow them off after just 1 year in the White House. But I am disgusted at him. The Commander-in-Chief should have more class and more care for the troops he commands.
