Yesterday, was the 68th anniversary of D-Day, which represents the beginning of the end of Nazi rule over Europe. We paid a high price with thousands of U.S. soldiers paying the ultimate sacrifice, but it is a day that will live in infamy and should be honored as such. Past presidents have done so, but Obama was rather forgetful yesterday. He had time to attend a gay fundraiser with all his godless buddies in Hollywood, but no time whatsoever to honor those who sacrificed so much for the sake of freedom. So typical!

Obama Ignores 68th Anniversary of D-Day Again
Obama Not Scheduled to Commemorate D-Day
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.
According to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, two critical swing states – Florida and Pennsylvania, are among the top five states in terms of veterans’ population. Within the top twelve are four others – Michigan, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina – all states Obama desperately needs to carry. source – White House Dossier
