Brian Terry Memorial Act
A few days ago, David Codrea pointed out a dilemma for the administration: President Obama could hardly veto the Brian A. Terry Memorial Act, but if he signed it it'd be customary to hold a signing ceremony with Terry's next of kin, who had not been kind about Eric Holder's conduct in the matter.
"On Tuesday, when Obama signed the bill into law, he did not hold a public signing ceremony with Terry’s family. The announcement that Obama had signed the memorial act into law was stuffed in the middle of a White House press release packed with other announcements not relevant to Terry.
The press release contained no quote from Obama or from White House press secretary Jay Carney about Terry."
He is SUCH a class act.

We talk about him like he was a dog because ...
No...that is too insulting to dogs,...
He remains, however the son of a ..... he always has been, and I sincerely apologize to female dogs everywhere for the insult.
No class, no moral fiber, no leadership, nothing but narcissism.

I can't say I'm surprised. I had a feeling from the start that that's exactly what would happen.

If only Brian Terry had been a 19yo gay black Skittles-carrying teenager killed by a mixed race U.S. citizen instead an irregular foreign militiaman...
THEN there would have been a fabulous public ceremony.
By the way, I wonder what would happen if we started refering to botder-crossing drug runners as "foreign militia"?

Mixed race? I thought he was a "white hispanic," which makes Obama a white black.

Maybe "foreign militia" IS the right term. I don't see how these armed guys coming in from Mexico and skirmishing with the Border Patrol are any different than Kony's henchmen. Aren't they using the proceeds from drug sales to buy arms from the Columbian FARC and Venezuela and attack the Mexican Government?
