    Lack of Obamas' visit agenda leaves Chicagoans guessing

    Lack of Obamas' visit agenda leaves Chicagoans guessing

    WASHINGTON -- The news that President Barack Obama and his family will return to Chicago for the Memorial Day weekend has triggered a guessing game.

    Where will they dine? What will they do for fun? With the Sox on the road and the Blackhawks skating into the Stanley Cup finals, might the first family ditch its predictable pastimes -- basketball, golf and tennis -- and go to the United Center for hockey?

    According to a White House official, the Obamas will arrive Thursday and stay until Monday, when Obama will participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood. The veterans' cemetery is about 50 miles south of Chicago.

    A top adviser to Obama, David Axelrod, recently took in a play at the Goodman Theatre about the civil rights movement, and that has some speculating that the Obamas will show up for "The Good Negro," which is making its Chicago premiere.

    So it is true. Obama will be skipping the memorial day service at arlington. (one that as far as I can remember, all presidents attended), in favor of a a chitown vacation....





    President George W. Bush Memorial Day Address: Arlington National Cemetery
    President Clinton At Memorial Day Services: Arlington National Cemetery
    President Regan Memorial Day Address: 26 May 1986 - Arlington National Cemetery





    To me this is highly disapointing, he is the CiC of the US Armed forces, and it is tradition for the President to attend this service. To choose to go on vacation instead?, again. disapointing and rather insulting imo.

    Cemeteries - Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery - Burial and Memorial Benefits


    So every thing must be done as Arlington National Cemetery? Because it really doesn't matter to me were the ceremony is as long as they do the ceremony

    I gotta say, it is disappointing. But, ya know what - maybe it's for the best.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    From the History books, since I was not even born yet it was a proclamation when he first was a president I have yet too find out were thought it was made. I have looked, and couldn't find a link to it.


    Proclamation 4842 -- Memorial Day, May 25, 1981

    your fault. Your first post had many conglomerated letters, spaces, and internet web links. I had to take the shorter post out of context.

    I'd rather him not be there rather than fake his way through it.
