As Twitchy reported, it was a heartbreaking scene Thursday at Arlington National Cemetery as Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, the highest ranking American serviceman to be killed in the Afghan war, was laid to rest, his son bowing over his father’s casket.

Some wondered why the commander-in-chief wasn’t present at the funeral of such a high ranking officer, and the Washington Examiner’s Byron York confirms that, yes, the president was busy golfing at the time.

And he got done saying late July that he hoped none of the Republicans took any vacayion time in August so they could get things fixed about the illegal aliens... how many vacayions has he been on this month?

Lamp that is what they said about Bush. Dislike the job he is doing, but get educated before you comment.
