Remember Memorial Day 2010? You should. But THIS year, since he’s trying to get re-elected, you bet your bottom dollar he won’t miss it.
President Obama will skip Memorial Day
visit to Arlington National Cemetery
Washington Post Staff Writers – Friday, May 28, 2010
President Obama is skipping the traditional Memorial Day visit to Arlington National Cemetery, a move that has dismayed some veterans — and comes at a sensitive moment in the administration’s relationship with the military.
Instead of speaking at Arlington, as he did last year and as most presidents have done, Obama will appear at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery outside Chicago, the White House said. Vice President Biden will take his place at Arlington, the most prestigious military cemetery in the country and home to Section 60, a large burial ground for soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
