As we watch America’s role in the world being gleefully diminished by the celebutard currently occupying the Oval Office, it’s instructive to reflect on a time when our nation sacrificed our blood and treasure to rescue the world from evil. Sixty-eight years ago today, American and Allied soldiers fearless stormed the beaches of Normandy to defeat and destroy Adolph Hitler who was determined to plunge the world into darkness. Thanks to the breathtaking courage of those brave men who fought, we live in freedom today. While the actual number of casualties may never be known, we do know that thousands paid the ultimate price. My words are inadequate to express my gratitude to these, and all, veterans. You are in my prayers every day, especially today.
Interestingly, as noted by whitehousedossier.com, Mr. Lead-From-Behind as also hitting the beach this week:
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.
