Obama mum on Pearl Harbor, still working on narcissistic selfie

Saturday marked the 72nd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and while the nation remembers the “day which will live in infamy,” apparently the Obama White House – not so much.

As of noon, neither the official Twitter account of the White House nor President Obama’s had acknowledged the attack on the base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, even though that is the state of the president’s birth, and the state he will spend Christmas in.

Looking back at the tweets from the White House and Obama over the last month on days of remembrance, perhaps an easy explanation for the administration’s failure to recognize Pearl Harbor might be because there is no official photograph of the president at the site.

Consider the narcissist-in-chief’s recent tweets, all with pictures of Obama, for:

The Christmas tree lighting ceremony featuring not the tree:

Former South African President Nelson Mandela’s death:

The Chief of Staff’s birthday, yep picture of Obama, but not the birthday boy Denis McDonough:

Remembrance of Rosa Parks historical bus ride:


The 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination:

See a pattern?

Is this the ‘single most narcissistic photo in history of WH’?

    He loves himself most of all. This nation remembers Decermber 7, 1941. It’s a shame our narcissistic president doesn’t. instead, he closes their memorial, threatens to arrest them, and dishonors them completely. Shame on him.

    Presidential Proclamation — National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, 2013


    – – – – – – –



    More than seven decades ago, on a calm Sunday morning, our Nation was attacked without warning or provocation. The bombs that fell on the island of Oahu took almost 2,400 American lives, damaged our Pacific Fleet, challenged our resilience, and tested our resolve. On National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we honor the men and women who selflessly sacrificed for our country, and we show our enduring gratitude to all who fought to defend freedom against the forces of tyranny and oppression in the Second World War.

    In remembrance of Pearl Harbor and to defend our Nation against future attacks, scores of young Americans enlisted in the United States military. In battle after battle, our troops fought with courage and honor. They took the Pacific theater island by island, and eventually swept through Europe, liberating nations as they progressed. Because of their extraordinary valor, America emerged from this test as we always do — stronger than ever before.

    We also celebrate those who served and sacrificed on the home front — from families who grew Victory Gardens or donated to the war effort to women who joined the assembly line alongside workers of every background and realized their own power to build a brighter world. Together, our Greatest Generation overcame the Great Depression, and built the largest middle class and strongest economy in history.

    Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served.

    The Congress, by Public Law 103-308, as amended, has designated December 7 of each year as “National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.”

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim December 7, 2013, as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. I encourage all Americans to observe this solemn day of remembrance and to honor our military, past and present, with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I urge all Federal agencies and interested organizations, groups, and individuals to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff this December 7 in honor of those American patriots who died as a result of their service at Pearl Harbor.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fifth day of December, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-eighth.

      How can he proclaim it National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day when we have always set this day aside to remember it? He makes it sound like something he thought up first.

      • Press Watchusa

        I am convinced that the WH is full of the DUMBEST A-Holes in the World

        Obama is purportedly the “smartest” – ONLY because

        He won’t hire anyone smarter than him

        The end result –

        Dumb and Dumber

      • Doug

        He’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

        • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

          Declaring a day of remembrance that has already been established for so many years shows he is either oblivious of history or confirming his narcissistic ego.

    • Hello Dolly

      ding a ling, it was established at the Arizona Dec 7, 1941…what an idiot.

    • Ben Love

      what’s your point Cheryl? He’s still the worst prez in the history of this great nation

  • Aaron Barnes

    Pearl harbor shouldn’t never happen

    • Joseph Hooper

      That is irrelivant, it happened and should be recognized by our “incredible”president

      • michael

        You mean un-credible?

  • Brandon Johns

    Obama loves himself and those who worship him like a God. Some of those loons troll this site.

  • dba_vagabond_trader

  • Dave

    The Thanksgiving picture should have been a picture of a turkey.
    Oh wait…….

  • lostmike

    I especially like the photo of Rosa Parks. Oh wait, there was no photo of Rosa Parks, just a sorry photo of our Tyrant in Chief, pretending like he would actually ride on a bus!

  • Bee Judy

    Don’t forget he didn’t go to Gettysburg a few weeks ago. He despises America, and the American citizen!

  • shadowgraph

    Unbelievable, unacceptable, unforgivable…and one more thing:

    Completely untrue.

    “As of noon, neither the official Twitter account of the White House nor President Obama’s had acknowledged the attack on the base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, even though that is the state of the president’s birth, and the state he will spend Christmas in.”

    But wait! What does a simple Google search reveal?

    “President Issues Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Proclamation” (http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=121290)

    This isn’t anymore true than Obama snubbing Gettysburg on the Address anniversary last month, yet your all falling over yourselves to hate that man over any falsehood or triviality. On FB this has more than 1.4k like, more than 1.4k comments, more than 1k shares. The vast majority of the comments are this kind of rancid bullshit.

    Melody Sutter Fisher: He’s not an American and doesn’t care

    Tatiana A Klimenko Kostanian: Melody, Obama IS anything but an American. Obama IS an Illegal! Obama IS a Mafia Spy and an Manchurian Candidate created to overthrow America & the American Peoples by the Zionist Government of Israel…he WAS created to Really kill off the American Peoples. & our Children

    Manuel L. Quezon: When i see this pic of the traitor-in-chief,

    Pamela Benton: He is NOT American so what the HECK did you expect??

    Colleen Peio: He is a Muslim Murderer & could care less about anything!!!

    You are going to have a lot of trouble convincing me this isn’t about the color of his skin. It disgusts me that ignorant scum like you feel entitled to call yourselves Americans.
