Did I mention I fucking hate hypocrisy?
This is a typical right-wing bullshit half-truth smear tactic.
I will entertain that this may not be a deliberate smear tactic. That it’s an honest belief by the right-wing that when Republicans do something, it’s always OK and when Democrats do that very same thing, it’s never OK.
But it’s probably a typical right-wing bullshit half-truth smear tactic.
The names have been changed to protect the innocent and the guilty – and all the shady characters in between.
Thanks, Mr. President
American Thinker Blog: Obama to skip Arlington Memorial Day wreath laying
All this selective memory, fake partisan outrage is really rather silly. What I mean is ...
Deputy Secretary of Defense W. Paul Thayer laid a wreath at Arlington Cemetery during the Memorial Day ceremony in 1983 while President Reagan attended a summit meeting in Williamsburg, Va.
Vice President Dan Quayle laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day, 1992 while President George H.W. Bush attended a wreath-laying ceremony and made brief remarks at an American Legion hall in Kennebunkport, Maine, where he also played a round of golf.
in 2007, Vice President Dick Cheney took over wreath duty on Memorial Day for President Bush.
Clinton never missed a ceremony in his 8 years...
The President should always be there no matter what, not vacationing in Chicago or Maine or wherever. It is one day, just one day. Thanks for informing me about previous presidents.
I agree, the Prez should be there. I was just taking note of the clearly right-wing biased article designed to make us mad specifically at Obama. If it was an honest article (which it absolutely was not), it would have said Obama, Bush1, Bush2 and Reagan all were at fault and Clinton should be applauded. But it only presented a partial truth to further a biased viewpoint against the opposition party. Where was this supposed outrage against Republican no-shows? This kind of crap drives me bonkers.
Bill, you took the words right out of my mouth. I'm so sick of all the biased information coming from the right-wing. It just seems to keep getting worse.
More than just seems.
Where was all the outrage when the people who got us into this mess were no-shows?
