After ignoring it for 4 years, Obama suddenly remembered D-Day

Rate this post

I woke up this morning to the alphabet TV news bleating on about the POS at a D-Day ceremony in Normandy Beach.

What his accomplices in the media won’t tell you is that THIS IS THE FIRST TIME Obama has commemorated D-Day since 2009.

This is from my post of June 6 a year ago, “Obama Forgot D-Day, Again“:

UPDATE (6.7.2013): I’m recycling this post from 2012 because nothing’s changed. Once again, Obama failed to mark the 69th anniversary of D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation. Instead, he flew to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he held two fundraisers with fat-cat donors in Palo Alto and Portola Valley.

UPDATE (6.6.12): I’m recycling this post from 2010 because nothing’s changed. Today, once again, Obama failed to mark the 68th anniversary of D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation. Instead, he’s on his way to San Francisco, where he will hold two fundraisers before moving on to Beverly Hills to stage two more.

UPDATE (6.6.11): I’m recycling this post from last year because nothing’s changed. Once again, Obama had forgotten that today is the anniversary of D-Day!

And here’s the original post from June 7, 2010, which I had recycled three times:

Landing at Omaha Beach, Normandy, June 6, 1944

Yesterday was June 6.

Sixty-six years ago, June 6, 1944, was D-Day — the day of the beginning of the Normandy landings when US and Allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, to free Europe from the grip of Hitler and the Nazis.

The operation was the largest amphibious invasion of all time, with over 160,000 troops landing along a 50-mile stretch of the Normandy coast divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.

The Allied casualties figures for D-Day have generally been estimated at 10,000, including 2,500 dead. Broken down by nationality, the usual D-Day casualty figures are approximately 2700 British, 946 Canadians, and 6603 Americans. However recent painstaking research by the US National D-Day Memorial Foundation has achieved a more accurate – and much higher – figure for the Allied personnel who were killed on D-Day. They have recorded the names of individual Allied personnel killed on 6 June 1944 in Operation Overlord, and so far they have verified 2499 American D-Day fatalities and 1915 from the other Allied nations, a total of 4414 dead (much higher than the traditional figure of 2500 dead). Further research may mean that these numbers will increase slightly in future. [Source]

The Normandy invasion began on June 4 and ended in mid-July, 1944, with a decisive Allied victory. It marked the beginning of the end of Nazi Germany and the European theater of WWII. Were it not for all those brave men, so many of whom sacrificed their very lives, we’d all be living under the yoke of the Third Reich.

But our so-called president could not be bothered to even mention, even less to honor, our fallen heroes. Instead, he was busy partying it up at the Annual Gala of the Ford’s Theater Society in Washington, D.C., his second party of the week:

This year, 2014 — Obama’s 6th year as President and Commander In Chief — is different.

Instead of going to a gala or winging his way on Air Force One to a fund-raiser, the POS actually was in Normandy Beach to remember D-Day.

As USA Today reports, Obama told the story of D-Day at the cemetery above Omaha Beach, calling it “this sacred place of rest for 9,387 Americans,” and  honored the D-Day veterans who “gave so much for the survival of liberty at its maximum peril” during World War II. America’s claim to liberty “is written in the blood on these beaches. It will endure for centuries. Omaha — Normandy — this was democracy’s beachhead.”

Blah. Blah. Blah.

Wanna know why all of a sudden, AFTER 4 YEARS OF IGNORING D-DAY, Obama suddenly discovered D-Day?

Answer:

V. A. Hospitals Scandal

That’s how serious VA-gate is.

  1. The PoS cannot recall such an important date because he is not a native-born US citizen, as required by the Constitution, so he never knew of this and other key dates when growing up in Africa & Indonesia.

    However, I note that he was consistent in attending the fundraisings in CA, as well as theatre events. Party, party, party, is his order of the day. And at tax-payer expense aboard Air Force One, to add insult to injury!

     
    • One doesn’t have to be a native-born US citizen to remember D-Day. It was a WORLD War II. To quote Merry in Lord of the Rings: “You’re [we all are] part of the world, aren’t you?”

       
      • You’re quite right, re the native-born aspect, which of course I understand as well, but the PoS –along w/the Clintons– makes me so choked if I think more than 10 seconds about them I make these errors.

        Indeed, we are all part of the human herd!

         
  2. I guess after the Benghazi scandal , The V.A. scandal , and the weasel from Idaho clusterfudge ; he must feel in that pea brain of his he better show some ” love ” to the military . God he sucks , what a fraud !

     
  3. Two years ago, I was invited to attend Obama’s Memorial Day visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the commencement of US involvement in Vietnam. I refused the invitation. I could not risk having my credibility destroyed or compromised were I to be in a photograph with him. Besides, I do not feel that I would want to waste my time attending an event where he would be present, unless it was his prosecution.

    If I were a World War II veteran of DDay, I would leave the ceremony once he appeared and return when he departed.

    Great post, Dr. Eowyn!!!
    When I was driving Mrs. Dust into Boston today, we heard on the radio that the president was busy with the D-Day ceremonies in France. I thought of putting up a post on the subject, but the sheer anger I was feeling made it impossible to assemble my thoughts. You did everything with this post that I could not. Thank you.

     
  5. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this most memorable post. Today, I will offer my day for all of the brave soldiers who participated in D-Day, especially praying for those who died for liberty and love, as well as their families.

    My uncle participated in the communication operations for D-Day. I have been to the gravesite in Normandy above the Beach, and as far as the eye can see, there were numerous white grave markers for all the heroes and/or heroines who died there. I will never forget the experience.

     
  6. And he couldn’t even bother to remove his chewing gum during the ceremony. Classless…

    • We should not expect anything else from these creeps.

       
    • Disgusting.

      A psychiatrist would say he’s being passive aggressive:

      1. He didn’t really want to be at the D-Day commemorative ceremony
      2. He didn’t really want to honor the military and the WW2 veterans.
      3. But his advisers told him to go because of all the military-related scandals: Benghazi, VA hospitals, the Bergdahl prisoner swap.
      4. So he consciously or unconsciously expressed his true feelings by chewing gum. That’s his “F-you” to the military and the American people.

       
  7. “”What his accomplices in the media won’t tell you is that THIS IS THE FIRST TIME Obama has commemorated D-Day.”

    Except for 2009, of course.

    Mr. Obama has attended D-Day commemoration ceremonies on the date in France more often than any other US President.

     
    • Yes, Obama did commemorate D-Day in 2009. But he snubbed D-Day in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 — as I stated in my post.

      You wrote “Mr. Obama has attended D-Day commemoration ceremonies on the date in France more often than any other US President” but provided no source. Even if that were true, that is not the point of my post. The point of my post is that he snubbed D-Day for 4 years, whether in France or in the United States.

       
  8. Don’t answer my question, I don’t want to know. What are those men who died at Normandy for our country now thinking when they see what happened to the people and nation they died for?

     
    • Probably like many of us that actually love our country.

      They probably want to hurl, choke, and puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuke.

      Thank God most of them are leaving us, as I would hate for them to have to see the country they risked their asses for by January of 2017.

      If you ask me, they are the lucky ones.

      -Dave
