In2 Eating Crow ?

I’m going to be possibly computer less after this post but I feel the need to get it out there. There is a piece that is making the rounds of all the right o’ center types regarding Obama and Normandy/D-Day ’09 trip. The story line is that tours are to be cancelled per Obama.

My quick bit of research reveals no State Dept hits on the subject and the French media is blank on the subject. The tour agencies are in full swing and currently booking for the 09 season. The MSM and big dogs of international internet media are all silent.

With that said I have to call BULLSHIT on Breitbert. If I end up having to eat crow down the road I’m taking cooking suggestions.

The Bullshit

The 65th Anniversary of D-Day is fast approaching.  Barack Obama will attend the events on June 6th as George Bush did in 2004 for the sixtieth memorial service.  Here is the rub, as of now Obama’s State Department has asked (read demanded) the French government not allow tour guide services to operate that day. It is a big day for Normandy tourism. Yet, the king will not allow those not connected with government to enjoy the day.  Obama is very important you know.  This is an unprecedented request.  I hope the French come to their senses and deny it.



Some previous precedent from ’94

D-DAY veterans planning to attend this year’s 50th anniversary celebrations have gone on the offensive after they were told that the French authorities had requisitioned their hotel rooms for civilian top brass.

The head of a Normandy hotel chain informed the tour company organising the visit that the French government had ‘decided to take over’ two hotels in the Deauville area to accommodate visiting heads of state and VIPs. Veterans were told arrangements were being made to billet them with local residents.

There were reports circulating in Paris last night that many of the veterans were being evicted to make way for personnel from American television networks who had themselves been displaced by French officials.

The veterans booked the hotels through a tour company in January 1993. Angus Cross, a former corporal with the 13th Parachute Battalion, said: ‘The French hotels were being bloody-minded and asking for a hefty deposit, so we paid them. Now some bloody jumped-up French official is saying they need the space. I’m extremely annoyed.’ independent.  

British government supplying funds to veterans to attend.

“This year is a bit different in the fact the National Lottery has decided to give us a grant to allow all veterans to attend anniversary events.

“Last year I applied for funding, but was turned down. But this year, largely because of the media, they have decided to help us out. We’ve all got a grant of up to £330 to allow us to go.

“To be honest, it’s not really about the money, but recognition of what we did for our country.” Echo

    Amazing. Going to bat for Obama.

  3. Alfie says:

    going to bat for the truth. breitbert chose to float an unsourced story out into the world and others jumped on it. in everyones fervor to bash obama nobody looked for reality. bashing someone with a lie ultimately only screws those that want to credibly call out the real problems o&crew commits. if you think they don’t relish stories and e buzz like the d-day thing you’re crazy. i need the right to be right not ridiculous.

  4. Elric66 says:

    So you are saying if someone told a lie about Castro, you would have a thread defending Castro from that lie?

  5. Alfie says:

    read the comment elric. getting excited and arming yourself with a lie is a pretty stupid thing to do. it distracts you from what really needs to be faced and when it is proven to be a lie you look like an idiot.

  6. Elric66 says:

    You didnt answer my question on if you would defend Castro like you do Obama.

    As for lying. Well it seems to have worked for Obama and his brown shirts. The man lies to the people every damn day.

  7. Alfie says:

    I don’t get how you feel this post “defends Obama “. Honestly..please explain and I’ll hen be able to offer an answer / clarification

  8. Elric66 says:

    Well if an article about Obama happens to be wrong it seems you feel you must have a thread calling it out. It seems out of place given all the crap he is pulling off.

    Agreed, Alfie.

    Many people seem to have forgotten the lesson of the boy who cried “Wolf.”

    There are plenty of reasons to cry “Wolf” right now … but this appears not to be one of them. Every time people fall into the trap of this kind of thing, they’re the dopes being roped, to refer to my own post a while ago and throw another metaphor into the mix.

    You are afraid to even cry “marxist”. Dont want to offend those LITERALLY destroying the country.
