Obama and Arlington
Some on the Right are getting a little frothy about the fact that Obama will not be at Arlington National Cemetery this coming Memorial Day but will be instead at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery outside Chicago (yes, there is more than one of them; Lincoln established 14 of the 16 that exist). They may want to remember that Reagan missed two of his eight opportunities to be be in Arlington on Memorial Day, Bush the Elder did not go at all, while Bush the Younger only attended from 2003 onwards (thus missing two of eight years). Oh, and Clinton went all eight years and thus becomes a paragon of patriotism. So by all means criticize Obama but at least be consistent.
