    By Anne E. Kornblut
    With the long Memorial Day weekend on the horizon, President Obama is finally addressing one of the great broken promises of his administration: his early pledge to return home to Chicago every six weeks or so.

    In 16 months at the White House, the Obamas have been back home just once - in February of 2009. But they plan to make the trip over Memorial Day weekend, an official said. After arriving on Thursday night, they will visit with friends and participate in private events.
    On Monday, Obama will make remarks at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, south of Chicago - missing the usual tradition of presidents speaking at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
    Vice President Biden and his wife will appear in Obama's place, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, as well as holding a breakfast for Gold Star families -- families whose loved ones died in military service -- at the White House earlier that day. </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    The first black president and he got to the office on the freedoms so many Americans of all colors have fought and died for and he can't forgo a trip to Chicago on this very special weekend? I guess if this is the way he feels then an appearance at Arlington would only be a sham. Just as well he won't be there.<!-- google_ad_section_end --><!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    Just what I expected from an America-hating Muslim from Kenya. His insults to Americans pile up daily. He is an international laughing-stock and a disgrace to patriots.
    The Lord of Hosts holds him in derision. What an appalling waste of oxygen!!

    Not a problem. Attendence should be for Americans only......

    Biden may be an arsehat, but he's OUR arsehat. [lolol]

    I've always felt that public memorial ceremonies should be fairly short and kept simple, if for no other reason than those remembered didn't seek the attention (and would be embarrassed by it.) With Biden yapping, that's out the window.

    I see no rational reason for zero's presence at Arlington for any reason. He wasn't their president any more than he is mine. (I actually applaud his absence after all the un-American posturing.) To overstate the case by a long shot, I'd be more impressed if Khaddafi sat quietly in the front row. After all, we (and the Brits) ran the Nazis out of Libya in WWII, and he should be grateful.

    1st Vist to Chicagoland Vet Cemetary

    What rankled my ass more than anything about the whole Memorial Day thing ..... he chose to "go home" to Chicago over Arlington Cemetary ...... he planned on giving a Memorial Day speech at a Chicagoland Veteran Cemetary (Lincoln Cemetary - Elwood IL) ....... rained out ..... said it was too dangerous weather conditions .......

    It was reported that this would be his first vist to the Lincoln Cemetary ...... he was a Illinois Senator and state politician before that ....... never bothered to vist before now???
