Barack Obama will not be in attending the the ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery for which has been tradition for acting Presidents aka Commanders In Chiefs. Barack will be doing something more important that warrants breaking tradition by honoring those who have giving their lives for our country. He will be on vacation in Chicago instead. I feel sorry for our soldiers that they have a man like Obama as their Commander In Chief. That alone is enough to deflate the moral of the troops. Vice President Joe Biden is suppose to be standing in for Obama at Arlington. I have nothing personal against Joe, but it isn't the same. Biden isn't the President hence he isn't the current Commander In Chief of the United States military. Barack claimed during his campaign that he was going to "earn the respect of the military"
. Maybe people forgot he said that. He's said so many lies, it's hard to keep track of them all. He's been more beholden to gay advocates in repealing "don't ask don't tell" then even asking those who risk their lives in wearing the uniform how they feel about the issue. Last year, Obama skipped visiting the fallen heroes laid to rest in Normandy France. Obama was afraid of "offending Germany and Britain
". So as you all can see, Obama's snub of the fallen at Arlington isn't an "isolated" incident. It is a disturbing trend. Obama will be coming back from his vacation to honor Paul McCartney at a concert at the White House however
. The old saying about respect is that it is "earned" and not "given". Can it really be said that Barack Obama has "earned" the respect of the military by his actions?
