President Obama Honors Veterans At Arlington National Cemetery

barack obama honors veterans

This is lovely.

In observation of Veterans Day, President Barack Obama visited Arlington National Cemetery, where he helped place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the tomb, it was placed in the cemetery in memory of American service members who died for their country, but whose remains were never found.

Thanks for paying your respects, Obama. We know the country appreciates it.

    ^ Do you even know that before Regan closed all the mental institutions, there were very few homeless - vets being the largest of that population? Thank your Republican Saints. And do some homework before you post. God Bless our Vets, even the ones our country tries to ignore.

    Perez, you're a moron. The Tomb of the Unknowns is for soldiers that died fighting for their country, but their bodies were never identified.

    just another photo-op…

    You better research what the "Tomb" is before spouting off about it…..stick to writing books, being a green-fly, and being a "Z" list celeb. FYI…..if you're gonna praise Obama, make sure you post every year no matter who is in office since every President does it….

    Hey Perez, just wondering if you thought it was 'lovely' and if you thanked George W Bush the many times he placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Yeah, I didn't think so.

    February 4th, last year at the National Prayer Breakfast.
    -
    OBAMA: "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in — in the audience here today…"

    I just want to correct the info about the Tomb of the unknowns. It is not a tomb for American service members who died for their country, but whose remains were never found. It is a monument dedicated to American service members who have died without their remains being IDENTIFIED. Hence they are unknown.

    its his job to do this stuff. In truth he prolly dont give a shit. and we all know Mario that you had no clue about what this tomb was!

    Why do people have to bring politics into this. This day: Veteran's Day , is a day to honor all the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep America safe. Why do you have to dirty it up with insults. GOD BLESS AMERICA! GOD BLESS THE MILITARY!

    Re: No Not – Oh, zip it! The post wasn't about Veteran's Day. It was about the piece of shit named Barry Obama pretending he gave a fuck about veterans. In case you don't know or the comments here didn't tip you off, he's hated by most Americans. Everyone can see that he's a lying sack of shit and America won't be great again until he's outta office.

    Re: Oh Resist Her – That was organially placed for those unknown remains. But with persistance of the families ad DNA they have been identified ad now for those who did not come home or remains were not found. Stop calling people names if you're not educted in the facts.

    Re: smokinjoe – No not every President does it. Baby Bush never made there in 8 years!!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Screw yourself asswipe. You no not of what you speak. You are a stupid uninformed asshole, or a young dipshit. Why does it have to Rebublicans vs Democrats? Veterans Day is celebrate the men and women who put there lives on the live for our freedom. What part of that do you NOT understand. Grow up. Maybe grow a brain..

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – This was about Veterans Day . You Jack off, people like you are why the world is in the mess it is. Karma is a bitch and I hope you get it up your ass mother fucker. you have no concept no intellegence no soul. People like you need to dispose of there stupid idealology that they may have something to contribute to society, but you my fool, can't!!! So until you know what you're talking about. don't!!

    Re: No Not – LOL Your post would make an editor weep. My favorite was when you advised me to grow a brain in the same post where you wrote that vets "put there lives on the live for our freedom." Gee, were you homeschooled or are you just a fucking moron? The latter I'm sure. My dad is a war vet. My uncle got two Purple Hearts in Vietnam. If you don't think vets love to talk politics then you are fool. And if you think Barry Obama gives two shits about vets then you are a fucking idiot.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Give be a break you child. Remember your first sword at me….This is not about Veteran Day. I need not say more. Fuckwad

    Re: No Not – Hey, dipshit, I wrote that this post isn't about Veteran's Day. I never wrote that today isn't about "Veteran Day." But go ahead and twist my words. I'm busy fucking your mother since you called me a motherfucker :) How'd that second sword of mine taste?



  21. 21

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Oh my I get now. Forgive me for interacting with a person of your level. I did not realize who you are. Stupid just can't be fixed .Please accept my deepest sorrow.



  22. 22

    He skipped Arlington on Memorial Day. But wait, that doesn't look bad in your book?



  23. 23

    Re: Sunnyskys – Huh?!?! Yes he did….I was actually there in 2004 when President Bush (or as you so disrespecfully called him "baby Bush") did. It's misinformed individuals such as yourself that have this country in such bad shape….and trust me, I know my facts about Arlington National Cemetary.



  24. 24

    Many homeless veterans were THROWN IN DC's HORRIFYING TORTUROUS JAILS to prepare & clear-the-way for Veteran's Day events!

    WHAT AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE!



  25. 25

    Why don't you enlist, Perez? I hear they take your kind now.



  26. 26

    Re: Sunnyskys – President Bush did attend this service…except for the year in was in Normandy celebrating D-Day.



  27. 27

    what's so extra-fucked up about this is that Obama(and his wife) are on record for supporting buring the flag & not liking the flag & wanting it redesigned. Dig around & you'll find that.

    Why do so many hate Obama?

    I'd gladly have a leader like him in exchange for our Prime Minister - Julia "I'll never introduce a carbon tax … You will all now suffer at the the hands of my newly introduced carbon tax" Gillard.
