Obama Sends Draft Dodger to Arlington

May 29th, 2010 | by Sqotty |

President Obama has decided to skip visiting Arlington on Memorial Day, opting instead to go to Chicago for (yet another) vacation and sending VP Joe Biden to do the honors.

First off, Obama not going to Arlington isn’t a big deal. He isn’t military, and most people serving in the military, or who have served, don’t like him. Obama is going to do something at a military cemetery in the Chicago area on Memorial Day. Friendlier territory for him. Politics, as usual.

But to send draft-dodging Joe Biden, a guy who milked the system for every drop in order to avoid military service to give an address at Arlington on Memorial Day is, in my opinion, outrageous. He could have called on any number of people who have served that are in his administration, or called upon a respected Senator, to perform the honor. Instead, this Memorial Day, Arlington will be graced with a Clintonian-style pseudo-male who disdained military service. Arlington is hallowed grounds, and sending this weasel to pay homage to those who gave their all for God and Country is a slap in the face to those who served.

    Do some research. Mitt Romney is a draft Dodger.

    If Romney is a draft dodger, then what does that make Joe Biden, who milked the system for draft deferments before being reclassified as ineligible due to asthma. Keep in mind that some of our greatest military leaders, including Chesty Puller, had asthma, and Biden was very athletic throughout high school and college, so asthma didn’t slow him down there. Oh, and Romney did receive an actual draft number (unlike Joe Biden and Bill Clinton), it just turned out to be a low number, so he wasn’t selected. So, before you sound off, make sure you know what you are talking about.
