President Obama once again is facing criticism for planning to skip the funeral of a prominent conservative figure, with the president expected to attend a festival over the services Friday for former first lady Nancy Reagan.
Michelle Obama plans to attend the funeral in Simi Valley, California, but the president will instead be in Austin, Texas, for the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival, a popular interactive mash-up of music, tech and film.
Obama is set to deliver a keynote speech.
Obama’s decision immediately drew fire from some conservatives, with former 2012 Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann calling the move “self-centered” and “classless.” [/ex]

I said this on the other thread that was made yesterday. Obama just said 'No'.
You did? I don't see it. I was under the impression he already said "No", I thought thats why the other thread was created.
