    Interesting article cites the numerous ways that Republicans have taken perfectly ordinary behavior by Obama and turned it into something shameful or questionable. Of course, not all Republicans are that easy to manipulate, but a surprisingly large number are.

    The Washington Monthly

    WITHOUT PRECEDENT -- EXCEPT FOR ALL THE OTHER TIMES.... Monday is, of course, Memorial Day, and President Obama will honor the day at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery outside Chicago, while Vice President Biden appears at Arlington National Cemetery. This, apparently, has caused a stir in some circles.

    Glenn Beck told his minions this week that that the president "has decided not to honor our troops on Memorial Day," which isn't even close to true. The deranged media personality, apparently referring to Obama's decision not to be at Arlington, added, "Maybe this has happened before. I don't recall it. "

    In reality, this isn't especially unusual.

    If I recall, Bush didn't start doing it until we invaded Iraq (the 'stan never gets any love!)
    In my opinion it would be nice to see the President at Arlington on Memorial Day, especially when we're in two wars, but there ARE multiple national cemetaries and as long as he's at one I guess it's not so bad.

    I figured by the title of this thread, you were posting an article on
    the Unions.... aka... Local Lemmings.
