This was the message to the troops from Supreme Allied Commander, US General Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Forty years later, President Ronald Reagan eloquently paid tribute to The Boys of Point du Hoc.
Today, President Richard Milhous Obama is in California, fundraising for his Presidential campaign and is ignoring this significant and important moment in American and world history (White House Dossier).
It’s D-Day and President Obama is hitting the beaches – of sunny California!
Instead of scheduling a brief event to mark the 68th anniversary of America’s brutal landing on the shores of Normandy, Obama is already on his way to San Francisco, where he will hold two fundraisers before moving on to Beverly Hills to stage two more.
Obama failed to mark D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation both last year or the year before. He did give a speech in 2009, the 65th anniversary of the event.
First Lady Michelle Obama, who has made much of her “Joining Forces” campaign to support military families, also has nothing planned for D-Day. She’ll be in New York City for a fundraiser and then in Philadelphia to meet with campaign volunteers.
Obama’s failure to mark D-Day in any significant way is both a shame and a political mistake.
All the guy cares about is himself. The only time he cares about our military is when he needs them for a photo op, or use war memorials for a photo op while inconveniencing those who come to pay tribute to the fallen on Memorial Day.
Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin did take the time and pay tribute and remember those who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, something Duh Won was too busy to do.
