The 1st Thread, Memorial Day Version For 5/31/10

Thanks to inclimate weather, Obama had to have his Memorial Day speech cut short:
President Barack Obama's Memorial Day observance was stopped in its tracks on Monday by a torrential downpour accompanied by bolts of lightning and booming thunder.
Obama thrilled the crowd at Abraham Lincoln National Ceremony by appearing under an umbrella as the rain poured down. But he did not deliver his prepared remarks honoring troops who died fighting for the United States.

Instead he urged the crowd to seek shelter in their cars.

"I am going back to mine," he said from the podium, the storm so loud his words could barely be heard through the amplifiers.

As it became obvious that the storm was not going to ease, aides announced that Obama would not make his speech. Instead, he climbed onto buses where the crowds had taken shelter and greeted the visitors who had been soaked by the storm.

And the legend that is OTOOLEFAN provides the line of the day, as he always does .

More to come on this Memorial Day folks.
