Obama's priorities

I think recent events exemplify our president's true priorities. The Obama administration made every effort to close the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., to hundreds of veterans and made it as inconvenient as possible for those who wanted to visit. Most surviving members of World War II are over 80 years of age, and visits of this nature are planned many weeks and even months in advance. And at every opportunity, the administration blamed the "government shutdown" as the reason for keeping people out of the memorial.

However, later during this same government shutdown, they sponsored a big party on the National Mall in support of illegal aliens. Rep. Nancy Pelosi even "thanked" Mr. Obama for the special consideration. Obviously she's more important than our men and women who defended the world against tyranny in the 1940s.

One good thing to come out of this "shutdown" is that it exposed our president's true priorities. Every American and taxpayer should be ashamed and angry at these clear choices the president made.
