Obama Honors Pearl Harbor Dead with Picture of Himself
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial.
The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground.
The post's statement reads:
Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served.
The Obama Administration's current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of the Navy from 313 to 298 ships. During a debate in the 2012 election, the President famously responded to concerns about the Navy's smaller size with a quip about the armed forces also having fewer "horses and bayonets."
