Have to admit that I am not a big fan of his but this hurts. I was lucky, as many of us were, but I lost friends and brothers and they deserve much more.

What the hell is this guy still doing in office? He disrespects soldiers, bows to muslims and the japanese. Screw this no talent A_S_S_C_L_O_W_N.

Where is this pic from? The pics I've seen of Obama at Arlington National Cemetary on November 11, 2009, show him in a blue tie, and overcoat.
Airman - November 17, 2009, 5:08 pm,
Sean, this came in an email to me from my Dad. But I googled veterans day 2009 tomb of the unknowns.. and this was ONE of the sites that came up: http://www.just-a-regular-guy.com/2009/11/13/obama-displays-lack-of-respect-at-veterans-day-ceremony/.
Sean - November 17, 2009, 5:13 pm,
I think this pic is actually from Memorial Day last May(hence the lack of an overcoat). The ph**os I found of him that look like yours show him with his hand on his heart. Guess he missed a beat when this one was snapped.
WTF - November 17, 2009, 5:18 pm,
Overcoat ph**os may be from January 18, 2009. Temp in DC broke into the 60s on 11/11/09. Don't think anyone would've been wearing an overcoat that day.
Sean - November 17, 2009, 5:24 pm,
I'd like to just go ahead and declare myself an idiot. Thanks. It was January in the pics I'm thinking of.
Airman - November 17, 2009, 5:27 pm,
it was the memory of your jazz hands that caused a slight confusion
Sean - November 17, 2009, 5:29 pm,
But snopes.com springs to the rescue. This was not Veterens day 2009, and Hail to the Chief was playing at the time. See:http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/ph**os/veteransday.asp
Sean - November 17, 2009, 5:30 pm,
Hey, leave my (all too white) jazz hands outta this. *snickers*
Airman - November 17, 2009, 5:30 pm,
Well, I am certainly not telling my father.
Airman - November 17, 2009, 5:32 pm,
aboot snopes, and especially not aboot the hands
Sean - November 17, 2009, 5:33 pm,
Fine. I'll tell him myself ... uhm, you got his e-mail address handy?
Sean - November 17, 2009, 5:34 pm,
Again, icksne on the andshne.
Airman - November 17, 2009, 5:34 pm,
he's resting. Took him all day to figure out how to email a picture
Airman - November 17, 2009, 5:53 pm,
let's throw some 1's at this since it isn't true.
DreMagnum - November 17, 2009, 5:59 pm,
You just asked for you own poster to be timmied?
Sean - November 17, 2009, 6:07 pm,
I a**ure you Airman, that THAT wasn't my intention. Sorry. And it was the comments this poster attracted that caused me to take an interest -- that and me and Obama are both Muslim communists.
Airman - November 17, 2009, 6:08 pm,
I did. Since it came in from my Dad, I a**umed it was legit. It implies that he is standing like this during the National Anthem. so timmies, here's one for your slaughter bin
Sean - November 17, 2009, 6:09 pm,
... who hate bacon so much!
Airman - November 17, 2009, 6:09 pm,
I know that sean.
Airman - November 17, 2009, 6:10 pm,
why doesn't the head of Canada get any attention?
Sean - November 17, 2009, 6:18 pm,
It's Canada? Hell, most Canadians aren't sure what religion he even is. Fewer things are issues here -- but not necessarily for good reason. Politics here is a much smaller game for smaller steaks.
Sean - November 17, 2009, 6:18 pm,
He being Prime Minister Tim Horton, of course.
MrRandom - November 17, 2009, 7:49 pm,
His policies on the Double-Double education act have certainly garnered enough attention to actually take up 10 minutes of the evening news for once.
The Goat - December 29, 2009, 10:49 pm,
What do you mean? In Ottawa a year ago they caught 2 drunk guys in their early 20s pissing on the national war memorial. Judge threw the book at them I'm pleased to say!
egg - March 29, 2010, 11:05 am,
Easy way to tell it's not Veterans' Day: ADM Mullin is in his whites, which the Navy only wears during Spring and Summer. This does look odd though. You'd think the Commander-in-Chief would at least stand at attention when he's being saluted.
GreyScorpion - March 29, 2010, 11:07 am,
hey egg, you're new, so you don't know any better, but we moved all the political discussions over to Politifake.ORG, thanks for stopping by.
