This is why you don't surf the net before going to bed...

...you just end up finding crap like this that you know is gonna keep you up all night.

The One blows off MoH Recipients for first time in 56 years
Posted By The Wolf

Yep. Get used to it.

Our new CINC attended quite a few gatherings last night, but as
This Ain't Hell reports, the Salute To Heroes Inaugural Ball was not one of them. For the first time in 56 years, a newly-inaugurated president has not attended the ball begun by President Eisenhower. 14 presidents later, a snub.

Go check it out over there- FORTY-EIGHT MoH recipients were in attendance. People- that's HALF of the recipients that are still alive, and darn well nearly all that are physically able to attend events.


'official' balls attended:
Neighborhood Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.
_ Obama Home States (Illinois and Hawaii) Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.
_ Biden Home States (Pennsylvania and Delaware) Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.
_ Midwest Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.
_ Mid-Atlantic Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.
_ Western Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.
_ Commander in Chief’s Ball at the National Building Museum. (Michelle danced with Marine Sergeant Elidio Guillen of Madera, California while the President had as a dance partner Army Sergeant Margaret H. Herrera of San Antonio, Texas)
_ Southern Inaugural Ball at the National Guard Armory.
_ Eastern Inaugural Ball at Union Station.
_ Youth Inaugural Ball at the Washington Hilton.

...what a POS.

Well while I understand you being upset at the snub, if I were one of the MoH receipients I would probably consider this a blessing. A man who has no honor cannot pay tribute to those who have demonstrated their in the most extreme circumstances.

Thanks for not showing up and understanding your place Mr. President.
