Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them.

Another milestone for our new President: he’s the first President in 56 years to snub the American Legion’s “Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball.”  The American Legion sponsors the ball, which recognizes recipients of Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award. It started in 1953 for President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s first inauguration.
Event co-sponsors include 13 other veterans service organizations, among them the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the Paralyzed Veterans of America.

Awe...the dems don't like our military. How sad. They don't like to go to war, so they must be anti military. Sure they want more benefits for the soldiers than republicans do, but that doesn't matter. All that matters is that the democrats only want to use the military when absolutely necessary. The republicans want to give the military something to kill. So they are absolutely pro military.

Personally I don't care which balls the president did or did not attend. I am just happy I get to post this youtube video due to relevence.

Only an observation Preacher.  A restating of fact.  Each democratic administration has done their absolute best to reduce the military and this one will be the same.  They want to take away 25% of the DOD budget.  Just another statement of fact.  Complaining about idiots who want to reduce this nation to one of complete ineffectiveness just doesn't work anyway.  The youtube stuff is blocked for me where I am now.  I may look later.

Just out of curiosity, did Obama attend any other functions that night that celebrated and honored MoH winners?

I mean, surely you researched it, right?

Just to all of the fake outragers out there, you did check to see if Obama attended any other balls that honored MoH winners, right?

_ Western Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.
_ Commander in Chief’s Ball at the National Building Museum.
_ Southern Inaugural Ball at the National Guard Armory.
_ Eastern Inaugural Ball at Union Station.
_ Youth Inaugural Ball at the Washington Hilton.
Unofficial balls include:
_ Congressional Black Caucus Inaugural Ball at the Capitol Hilton.
_ Creative Coalition Inaugural Ball at the Harman Center for the Arts.
_ Recording Industry Association of America’s ball for Feeding America.

Something is totally wrong with this list, because I know for a fact that he attended the lower enlisted ball, because I saw him there (on TV) and they even danced with two selected lowered enlisted soldiers that had served in IRAQ. I think this article and the list is a little propaganda ploy.

doesn't change the fact nobama broke tradition and snubbed MoH winners. the vfw ball wasn't on the itinerary. If he attended anyway the news of his snub would have been busted early on.
