Neither the President nor the Vice President were present.The nominal Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama was playing a round at the Vineyard Golf Club with Valerie Jarrett’s cousin, Cyrus Walker, the World Bank president, former President of Dartmouth College Jim Kim, and former lobbyist and ambassador Ron Kirk.Joe Biden was in the middle of the third day of a week long vacation in the Hamptons, which followed a week in Wyoming, which was preceded by a week at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.While America has lost a two-star General who has served in a war the president has waged with one of his patented withdrawal deadlines, the Commander-in-Chief could not show the common decency to honor him with his presence.The disconnect could not be more profound.Is there anyone who can explain this to me! How could our Commander-in-Chief be so disrespectful?
