Obama Blows Off D-Day's 66th Anniversary For Theater Gala And Drinks

The program that Obama attended after gourmet canapes and drinks at the White House:

The programme:
Ty Burrell, welcome
Kelly Clarkson, "Everybody Got Their Something" and "Way Over Yonder"
George Lopez
From the Ford's Theatre production of Little Shop of Horrors
Christopher Kale Jones and Jenna Coker-Jones, "Suddenly, Seymour"
Soldiers' Chorus of the United States Army Field Band
"My Country, 'Tis of Thee" and "America the Beautiful" Robin Roberts, family life in the White House
Dick Van Dyke and The Vantastix, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Medley"
Lionel Richie, "Three Times a Lady" and "All Night Long" with the Joyce Garrett Celebration Singers


Presentation of the Lincoln Medals
Renee Fleming, "Soul Meets Body" and "In Your Eyes"
Cast members from Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Broadway musical Mary Poppins
Laura Kelly and Gavin Lee, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"
From the Broadway musical Memphis Montego Glover, "Colored Woman"
General Colin Powell, a special tribute Renee Fleming, Soldiers' Chorus of the United States Army Field Band, Bill Conti and the Spirit of America Orchestra with the Entire Company "Battle Hymn of the Republic"

What Obama didn't think important:
D-Day casualties:

British - 2700
Canadians - 946
Americans - 6603

15,000-20,000 French civilians died with an unknown number of casualites.
 Britain: 2,700 killed
United States: 1,465 killed
Canada: 500 killed
 Germany: 4,000 killed

I could not find any reference to the soldiers or civilians singing "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" or enjoying canapes of any kind, but what is important here is that Obama has some quality down time from all the great work he has been doing on that spill, jobs and the economy not to mention Israel and Palestine.

I'm sure all soldiers understand the sacrifice he has made for the country.

Where In The World Is Zack Space?

No town hall meetings. No appearances in his district. Maybe a few "constituent" meetings, probably private, if he has had any at all. So, where is Zack? He isn't answering any questions from his constituents and he sure isn't meeting them face to face. Hiding, that's representing his district?

Where has Zack Space been?
