He’s going to be giving the keynote address at SXSW! You can’t expect him to miss that for some old lady’s funeral, can you? C’mon!
From the Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama will not attend Nancy Reagan’s funeral this Friday, and will instead be in Austin, Texas for the annual South by Southwest festival.
Plus, as noted on last week’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, Barry made a point of disrespecting Mrs. Reagan at his November 8, 2008 news conference right after he was elected. Remember this?
More here from the New York Post. They point out that traditionally presidents have not attended First Lady’s funerals. See, Barack is showing his respect for tradition. Isn’t that what you bitter clingers want?
Mooch will be attending, though. Did she hear that there might be an “all you can eat” buffet?
