• DISRESPECT: Obama Plans To Skip Scalia’s Funeral

    In a move that some feel is absolutely appalling, President Obama will not attend the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Scalia. Putting all acrimony aside Scalia served the bench for thirty years. Does that mean nothing to the President?

    The snub is in a long list of snubs. Obama apparently can’t be bothered to attend funerals of people he didn’t like. The man has no honor or respect for anyone other than himself.

    From the Sean Hannity Show:

    The White House has confirmed reports that President Barack Obama will not be attending the funeral of late Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s funeral which is scheduled for Saturday. Instead, the president and first lady Michelle Obama will pay their respects to Scalia on Friday, when the Justice’s body lies in repose in the Great Hall of the Supreme Court building. The White House added that Vice President Joe Biden will attend Saturday’s funeral at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

    The last supreme court justice to pass away was Justice William Rehnquist in 2005. Then-President George W. Bush not only attended the service, but delivered a eulogy along with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

    Critics claim that his decision not to attend Justice Scalia’s funeral is just the latest in a string of snubs over the past several years. While Obama has attended some high profile funerals like those of former South African President Nelson Mandela and Senator and ex-KKK member Robert Byrd, the president has skipped out services for a number of high-profile conservatives and members of the U.S. military.

    Here are few other funerals Obama has skipped, Maragaret Thatcher and Chris Kyle. The Scalia, Thatcher, and Kyle families probably are thankful that Obama has no honor, because then they would have had to listen to him in their times of deepest mourning.
