Sixty-eight years ago today, the course of human history appeared to be flowing inexorably toward tyranny — until D-Day turned the tide toward freedom. In honor of the anniversary, Google commemorates this momentous event:
Apparently today is also the anniversary of the opening of the first drive-in — or maybe the closing of the last one; who cares?
Here’s how the Community Organizer in Chief is honoring D-Day:
It’s D-Day and President Obama is hitting the beaches — of sunny California!
Instead of scheduling a brief event to mark the 68th anniversary of America’s brutal landing on the shores of Normandy, Obama is already on his way to San Francisco, where he will hold two fundraisers before moving on to Beverly Hills to stage two more.
Obama failed to mark D-Day with either a speech or a written proclamation both last year or the year before.
Such a busy schedule doesn’t leave much time for trips to Normandy, or even the National WWII Memorial back in DC.
