President Obama Commemorates The War Dead On Memorial Day By Hitting A Few Rounds Of Golf
COMMEMORATION OF THE DEAD
Remember, O Lord, Thy servants, (name them), who have gone before us with the sign of faith and rest in the sleep of peace.The Telegraph
To these, O Lord, and to all who rest in Christ, grant, we pray Thee, a place of refreshment, of light, and of peace.
Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
Barack Obama's decision to play golf on Memorial Day was disrespectful and hardly presidential

Can you imagine David Cameron enjoying a round of golf on Remembrance Sunday? It would be inconceivable for the British Prime Minister to do so, and not just because of the usually dire weather at that time of the year.
Above all, it would be viewed as an act of extremely bad taste on a day when the nation remembers and mourns her war dead. I can’t imagine the PM even considering it, and I’m sure his advisers would be horrified at the idea. And if the prime minister ever did play golf on such a sacrosanct day he would be given a massive drubbing by the British press, and it would never be repeated. more
