Barack Obama’s Memorial Day Gaffe & Playing Politics with a Hero’s Day

Posted in: Barack Obama,Bizarre,heroes,Military,Politics,Presidential Election 2008,WTF

By the way, what ever happened to that skilled orator Obama that the media fawned over for months? It hardly seems like he can’t ever get his foot out of his mouth these days.

Maybe some one would like to tell Barack Obama when one runs for the Presidency they are also running to be the Commander and Chief of our Armed Forces. That being said, maybe Obama may want to learn that Memorial Day is to honor our Country’s war heroes who have served and sacrificed to protect this great land. It would appear that Obama did not get the memo:

“On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong”. (Obama)

What is even more shameful as Power Line  points out was the disgraceful manner in how Obama sought to politicize the holiday.

What was really offensive about Obama’s New Mexico appearance, however, was what followed his very brief, but generally appropriate, tribute to America’s war dead. He continued with a town hall-style question and answer period that cast veterans in the only role with which the Democrats are comfortable–victims–and sought to politicize the holiday.

There is something very disturbing in the contrast how Democrats and Republicans honor our military heroes. The Gateway Pundit has the video of Obama’s speech.

Certain days are meant to be respectful and the spot light is to be put on others who have served and sacrificed, not for partisan politics. Compare Obama’s comments to President George W. Bush’s speech at Arlington National Cemetery.
