Perhaps because he's the Commander-in-Chief, as well as President?

Did you read the article? It says in print, "President Obama was invited but did not attend."

All the more reason why the Salute To Heroes Ball should have been near the top of his priority list.

Everyday that goes by he shows to me why he shouldnt have been elected. This is anti-military and itll be swept under the rug because the media loves him. If this was Bush he wouldve been eaten alive.

Spin-spinnery-spin-spinnery-spin-spin-spin-spin...

The "Chosen One" effed up. Stop trying to polish a turd and just admit it. This is the first of many mistakes he'll make. The left ripped up Bush unmercifully, but the right is just suppsed to sit back and eat shit when Obama eff's up?

Christ the BALLS on you guys...

i guess i glossed right over that. i cant imagine why he would skip out on such a ball of importance.

maybe he does hate the military.

maybe they were serving roasted pork which is against his muslim faith.

maybe secret service thought there might be a threat.

who knows. i woulda gone.

The myopic hateful Bush bashing was supposed to not have consequences? If this was Bush, this snub would be front page news, CNN and MSNBC would be running it as a top story, and the left (many posters here included) would be like sharks in a pool of chum.

But this is Obama, so he gets a pass...

Poking fun at this will not make it go away. The president has shown in a very sort time a lack of respect for the men a women that protect this country. He has said that he wants to bring this country together, he is off to a piss poor start.

Maybe I have it wrong, maybe he is just the president of the people that elected him and the rest of us can just wait 4 years to get our own.
