Obama Snubs Medal Of Honor Recipients

So what better way to kick off the new Presidency than to break 56 years of tradition and blow off a celebration to real heroes..

Per TAH:

The American Legion sponsors the ball, which recognizes recipients of Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award. It started in 1953 for President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s first inauguration.

Event co-sponsors include 13 other veterans service organizations, among them the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the Paralyzed Veterans of America.

They did however have the time to attend Ten other balls of more importance. Is this really suprising though? It's not like Barry has ever cared for our troops or veterans before..
