"Its interesting to see a Party that claims to be protecting Democracy trying
so hard to get the opposition OFF the Ballot so that Democracy is thwarted.
If you want to see real Election interference ...YOU GOT IT !"

The claim [posted on this board]  that 2010, 2011, and 2012 were the only years since World War II in which an American president failed to attend D-Day commemorations is patently false, however. This is easily confirmed by checking the U.S. State Department historian's list of presidential visits to France.
Here are the facts:
  • The first American president to participate in a D-Day commemoration in Normandy was Ronald Reagan on the 40th anniversary of the invasion, June 6, 1984. He visited only that one time during his entire eight-year term.
  • Reagan's successor, George H. W. Bush, never attended a D-Day commemoration at all.
  • Bill Clinton attended only once, on the 50th anniversary of D-Day in 1994.
  • George W. Bush attended only twice during his eight-year term of office: on Memorial Day 2002 and on the 60th anniversary of D-Day in 2004. (He also, in 2001, dedicated a stateside D-Day memorial in Virginia.)
  • As stated above, Barack Obama has attended only once during his term of office, on the 65th anniversary of D-Day in 2009.

Between 1944 and 2012 — a span of 68 years — exactly four U.S. presidents have attended D-Day memorial ceremonies a combined total of exactly six times.
 Barack Obama was one of the four.
