video because it does honor the best of America. Please take a few minutes to watch. And to all those soldiers out there, past and present... YOU ARE THE BEST OF AMERICA! You deserve the respect of every American. THANK YOU for all that you do and all that you sacrifice so that I might enjoy my life, liberty and pursuit of happiness!I want to throw in this
I wrote this yesterday and after some deliberation, I thought I should add the following info in here as well. I want to show that I don't think it's wrong just because Obama is doing it. Every president should show his appreciation for our fallen soldiers.
Reagan missed one year because he was at an economic summit. GW Bush missed it to also go on vacation... (I think I heard twice somewhere?) I really don't get why Sr. didn't do it. He missed all four, but as a WWII vet, I can see if he has some residual issues there...?? I DON'T agree with ANY OF IT... There is NO excuse for that kind of disrespect from the Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military in the world. The president, no matter who it is, should have priorities for those who sacrificed literally everything for this great country instead of putting the country and its people down all the time. To the rest of the world and to even us Americans, it looks like he doesn't care (the other presidents as well). I just thought it was ironic that Obama had no time for the ceremony, but had to hurry back for a big celebrity hub-bub! He has shown time and time again that being on Jay Leno or American Idol, traveling the world and rubbing elbows with the "elite" are all much more important to him.
