Agreed. It's gone beyond ridiculous into ludicrous.
Obama could buy everyone an AR-15, put on a bacon-suit and run through a mosque, and personally shoot illegal Mexicans himself at the border and the Republicans would somehow find problems with it.
Why he even tries?
the idea of someone running through a mosque in bacon is ludicrous and insulting. We simply don't think it rises to the level of hate crime that some other things do ... like chucking gays off of buildings, for example.

Are you suggesting that Obama should....wait for it....act politically correct on this matter?

And how is him going to a service before the funeral and just not the actual one disrespectful?
Also, as pointed out in this thread and in the article, a president going to a funeral of a justice is not a foregone conclusion.
Think it said a President or Vice had only attended 4 of the last 7.

Not sure whether this adds to the conspiracy theories or is just a sign of disrespect from Obama.

If Obama found a cure for cancer you knob jockeys would criticize him for not finding it sooner.
It's getting old watching the same people talk the same nonsense over non issues.
a person who offers an argument in defense of something controversial.
Obama's views on the Constitution and federal laws tangled with the 79-year-old justice's originalist approach, but White House officials said the decision not to attend the funeral was simply procedural, based on the president's large security detail.
I'm not going out of my want to do anything other than explain why I consider the action to be rather disrespectful-
(and wish that you could comprehend)
