Republicans---BACK OFF the Pres. for not going to Arlington National Cemetery...

It is NOT unprecedented for a President to not go to Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.  In fact, it is a recent event for Presidents to attend on a regular basis.   It is not fair to hold him accountable for something Republican Presidents have not done themselves EVERY year (Click HERE for records)...Lets disagree on POLICIES, and not be petty...He is still presenting himself at a commemoration in Chicago...I am a veteran myself (USMC) and disagree with many of the Presidents policies, but trying to score political points on this issue is, well, just plain wrong and  not productive...Sue me! 

Stressed Out or Tone Deaf? Obama Chicago Vacation Raises Eyebrows
""The Arlington visit is a fairly recent tradition. Former President Ronald Reagan attended four of them in his eight years in office, while former President George H.W. Bush sent Vice President Dan Quayle to every one. Former President Bill Clinton, though, attended every year and George W. Bush missed only one, in 2002, when he was in Normandy, France, visiting the American cemetery. ""
