WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans to spend a long holiday weekend in Chicago.
The White House says Obama and his family will travel to their hometown on Thursday and stay through the weekend. It will be their first trip back home since a visit for Valentine’s Day weekend in February 2009.
On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.
In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington.
It's an AP report. He is planning on commemorating Memorial Day at a cemetary in Chicago while Biden lays the wreath in Arlington. Then he is planning on coming back to DC to honor McCartney. Good to know where on his priority list those who died for his freedom rank. May God Bless you and keep us all safe from the progressive axis of evil,0bama,Pel0si & Reid
