Whatever his obvious partisan sympathies, Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States and there is protocol and (one would hope) a dignity we expect our President to maintain. But Obama is a whole other animal. That someone of such low character, limited experience and hatred for America could be elected President of these United States is a testament to the power the left wields in the media, culture, and academia.
“Obama to skip Scalia funeral,” By Eliza Collins, Politico, February 17, 2016:
President Barack Obama will not attend Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral on Saturday, the White House said Wednesday. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden will attend.
Obama and first lady Michelle Obama instead will go to the Supreme Court on Friday “to pay their respects to Justice Scalia” while the justice lies in repose in the Great Hall, press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Wednesday.
The most recent member of the Supreme Court to die was Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 2005. In that instance, President George W. Bush not only attended the funeral, he also eulogized Rehnquist.
