Tomorrow marks the 65th anniversary of the Allied landings on the shores of France.

President B. Hussein Obama - who never served - is will probably issue a "gung-ho" lofty pronouncement, just as Bill Clinton - who also never served - did a decade-and-a-half ago. If'n he does, well, that'll be pretty sick. (If B'obama stacks pebbles on Omaha beach, a la Bubba, that'll be extra-sick.)

That said, what Obama needs to do tomorrow is get him a copy of President Reagan's "Boys of Pointe du Hoc" speech and just say, "Ditto." That'd improve his standing in my eyes a big bunch, indeed.

Free nations had fallen, Jews cried out in the camps, millions cried out for liberation. Europe was enslaved and the world prayed for its rescue. Here, in Normandy, the rescue began. Here, the Allies stood and fought against tyranny, in a giant undertaking unparalleled in human history.
