The Free Beacon drops the ball.
President Barack Obama will now attend a dedication ceremony next month for a new memorial honoring disabled American veterans, a major reversal in course that comes several weeks after the Washington Free Beacon first reported on the president’s initial decision to decline attending the event.
White House officials notified event organizers earlier this month that Obama would not be able to attend the dedication. Obama would have been among the first U.S. presidents in recent history not to formally dedicate a major D.C. memorial in person.
However, the White House said on Tuesday that Obama would now attend the October ceremony in person.
“On Sunday, October 5, the president will deliver remarks at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial dedication ceremony in Washington, D.C.,” a White House official informed the Free Beacon.
I bet the vets are just thrilled. They know all too well the contempt and disregard the Pretend pResident harbors for them–a contempt the overwhelming majority of servicemen past and present reciprocate in full. The miserable worm should do what everyone involved knows he’d prefer to and stay home, or on the damned golf course.
