Obama To Visit France For The 65th Anniversary of D-Day

Obama to visit France for D-Day anniversary


PARIS, France

U.S. President Barack Obama will visit France in June for the 65th anniversary of D-Day, French President Nicolas Sarkozy's chief of staff said Thursday.

There had been discussion of Obama going to Normandy next month on his trip to Europe, the official, Claude Gueant, told the French TV network France 24. But he would have had only an hour on the beaches where Allied forces landed on June 6, 1944, the beginning of the drive to push the Nazis out of France during World War II.

That would not have left enough time for conversations with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Gueant said


Wild Thing's comment.........

ABSOLUTE sacrilege !!!! That is a hallowed place.

Those men, our Heroes died to stop fascism and Obama is all about bringing fascism to America.

I don't care who Obama is, I don't care what is job is, he shouldn't be anywhere near places like Normandy. He has NOT earned the right, He has already shown how cold he is to our troops and many other things I have posted about regarding our military, the video below shows just how he disrespects them.

I'm sorta glad my father is gone. He landed on Utah Beach on D-Day and in 1965 he and my mother went back there. They were wined and dined by the Mayor and his wife of the nearest town, whose names I forget but I have them and the pictures in my records. He said that they could not have been treated with more honor than they received and of course they deserved it and the French knew it and when people criticize the French I remember that they honored my father and all those men who hit those beaches on the most violent day in history.

I encourage everyone I meet to stop in Bedford Virginia and visit the D-Day Memorial there. Wish I could post the thousand pictures I have taken there. It is a tremendous experience that every true American would enjoy.

And I wish the current occupant would stay in the White House and leave decent people alone. He is not capable of honoring those great men of the Allied Forces who lived and died there.

If he went to the Normandy beaches, I can only hope that bastard Obama would step on an old overlooked land mine. But then again, I would not want his tainted blood on the same sands as real heroes blood.

Hopefully he won't have time to go to Normandy. I thought Clinton's phony photo-op there was bad, but Obama would be much worse. Maybe his teleprompter would stage straightening out a fallen American flag.

Who can not remember the stagged scene with Bill Clinton walking along the beach and "finding" a few pebbles that he stacked up but that his advance staff had taken out there earlier? Image over substance, always, in a Democrat Whitehouse.

You can not expect that Obama will meet the standards of Hollywood actors who have held his job.

Mon Dieu!!Pure SACRILEGE. I woulnd't be suprised if he receives catcalls(at a minimum) upon his arrival/disgracing at that most hallowed ground. He needs to stay here and clean up the mess his banker/lawyer/real estate/politician buddies and their ilk have made.(oh and he IS cut from the same cloth-let there be NO disputing that!). The Obamessiah keeps 'talking' about "sacrifice", (LMAO/Crying at the same time), and this guy has NO EFFING CLUE, nor does he CARE about what REAL, BLOOD SHEDDING SACRIFICE IS, MEANS, and the DEPTH OF THE WORLD'S DEBT to these BRAVE, BRAVE, BRAVE and GREAT, HONORED MEN AND WOMEN. He does NOT 'deserve' to stand even DOWNWIND of their REVERED presence.

He has no clue what pain is, everything in his life has been handed to him. His college was paid for, Law School was paid for. Then he became a Community agitator. It takes no brains nor sacrifice when you are using someone elses money or blood.

He is a scumbag pure and simple.

No he doesn't belong on Narmandy nor Arlington (period).

My Grandfather is spinning in his Grave right now. If he were alive He'd shove his Size 13 AAA Boot up obama's ass. This is NOT what He fought for. Yes, Size 13 AAA (VERY Narrow Feet), He had to have his shoes custom made.

This SOB hasn't any more morals than his mother had, an anthropologist who consorted with her subjects. Is he going just to pay homage to the Vichy or is it too sully the memory of those brave men who died there?.

Thank you everyone for your comments on this, it is very upsetting.

I never forgot what Bill Clinton did and this will be even worse.
