Obama's Veterans Day

Silent respect instead of big speeches full of platitudes and lies like the Dick and Chimp-o. I think perhaps we will have a President with a little character. We sure need one.

The Swamp

Wearing a dark overcoat, the president-elect walked to the memorial with Tammy Duckworth, a wounded Iraq War veteran and director of the Department of Veterans Affairs for Illinois.

With her at his side, he picked up a wreath placed in front of the memorial and carried it a few feet forward, then set it directly in front of the bronze memorial.

Obama bowed his head for a moment, then put his right hand at his forehead, saluted and walked away with Duckworth. Only a few dozen spectators were present on this crisp day.
