Not Surprised

We learn, from Wyatt, that President Obama dissed missed the "Salute to Heroes" ball the other day.

Obama blows off Medal of Honor recipients

According to TSO who was at the “Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball”, this newly sworn-in President for the first time in 56 years blew off the ball (that’s 14 Inaugurations).

Some background on the 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.

Bad form, Mr. President.

Of course, this is the guy who doesn't put his hand over his heart when the National Anthem is playing, hence the title of this post..
