Obama diss: President snubs historic Gettysburg 150th anniversary ceremony

It may be little more than a blip on Washington’s radar screen, but President Obama’s decision to be a no-show at an upcoming ceremony to mark the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address has touched off a firestorm in Pennsylvania.

Local newspapers Thursday excoriated the president, a noted admirer of the 16th president, for skipping the historic occasion.

A journalist at Harrisburg’s Patriot News said Mr. Obama doesn’t have “the stones” to attend; York’s Daily Record newspaper called the decision “unacceptable” and said “Mr. Obama’s retreat from Gettysburg will linger long and bitter.”

The Gettysburg Times reported that local officials in and around the town have spent months preparing — in vain — for a potential visit from Mr. Obama, who twice carried Pennsylvania in the presidential election (by 11 percentage points in 2008 and five in 2012).

Instead, the White House will send Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to the Nov. 19 event, which will be held at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery.

    America hating Antichrist-In-Chief. Usually…or at least 43 times previously, those elected to represent the highest office in the Unites States of America have loved their country and actually represented her best interests at home and around the world. This foreigner sits illegally in the highest office, and does it with disdain. He is hell bent on the internal destruction of America. So far, he’s been doing a darn good job of bringing America down. His daddy, the devil, must be ever so proud.

    Who would want that POS at their celebration anyway? The sooner the democrats see how worthless he is, the better.

    Big surprise. This President is NOT American. He has no sense of history.
    I have no respect for this Chicago A-Hole.

    Obama has a history of snubbing American Veterans and their War Memorials, honoring the brave Veterans; who have died fighting for America.. For 4 years he never bothered going to France for the Normandy Invasion anniversary, honoring those brave WWII Veterans. Now he is snubbing the honorable, brave Civil War Veterans killed at Gettysburg, at the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, that too is snubbing the honor of President Lincoln..
