Somehow, according to those who have intense, visceral hatred for President Obama, appearing at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery shows that he hates the troops at worst, or, at best, is tone deaf because he wasn’t at Arlington, and the fact that it rained shows how terrible everything is for Obama. (h/t Eric Boehlert)

“Terrible week for Obama somehow turns worse.” On any other occasion this would be amusing, but Memorial Day without an address from the C-in-C is a bummer through and through. …caught in the middle of a downpour to rival Noah’s flood….his weekend YouTube address on Memorial Day, which will have to do as a substitute for any remarks today. And…Biden pinch-hitting at Arlington. Looks like you missed some beautiful spring weather in Virginia, champ.

So, only the soldiers buried at Arlington are deserving of a presidential visit on Memorial Day? How about the fact that the only reason presidents attend Arlington on Memorial Day is because it’s close to Washington?  How about the fact that in 1983, Ronald Reagan opted to attend an economic summit instead of honoring the troops and, instead, had Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz lay a wreath? How about Memorial Day, 1992, when George H. W. Bush’s vice president, Dan Quayle, subbed for his boss at Arlington? Bush 41 was in Kennebunkport, Maine where he addressed the American Legion before playing some golf.  Were Reagan and Bush’s priorities “tone deaf”?
