Busy Schedule for POTUS

December 13, 2010

 

The US Postal Service unveiled the newest first class stamp in their inventory today. The image was an icon of global freedom and undeniable virtue. The authorization for this stamp bearing the image of the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Wilson Reagan, was signed by Barrack Obama. For some reason, President Obama was unable to attend the ceremony. Understandably, the duties of POTUS are incessant and demanding.  Apparently, basketball takes precedence over protocol.  It is not surprising.  If Obama couldn’t find three seconds to salute SSgt Guito after awarding him the Medal of Honor, why would he find time to honor the greatest President in the Modern Era?

Thank you Mr. President…Reagan

The Los Angeles Lakers flew to Washington, DC for their appearance with the President.  US Postal Service ceremony honoring the Ronald Reagan Centennial was held at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, CA;  thirty minutes north of the Staples Center…in Los Angeles.  Something tells me that both could have been done at the same location.
