ABC tried to prop up the vacationing Obama on Memorial Day by bashing Bush.
The American Thinker reported:

The ABC News report on the rainout of President Obama’s planned Memorial Day speech in Illinois noted that Obama had been criticized for not staying in Washington to go to Arlington National Cemetery. But ABC provided a ready excuse, subtitling its report “Obama Not First to Skip Arlington on Memorial Day” and asserting that George W. Bush “did not attend in 2001 or 2002.”

ABC was flat-out wrong about 2001, and highly misleading about 2002.

In 2001 Bush was at Arlington National Cemetery. In 2002 Bush commemorated Memorial Day at the Normandy American Cemetery, where 9,000 Americans are buried. He was in Europe for the week.

(ABC has since updated their hit piece from yesterday.)
