I'll Play Dixie If I Want To
I have to give credit where credit is due: the Obama White House Press Office "got it right" with its press release on the passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan. And the flag issue too.
This time. (The WH press release and flag proclamation re: Mrs. Reagan were probably both sitting "on the shelf" for a few years ...)
Statement from White House on Nancy Reagan’s death - The Boston Globe
Presidential Proclamation -- Nancy Reagan
That being said, I note that the Bidens are in the Middle East/Gulf States (and NOT the Gulf of Mexico, and not "golf") on a state visit.
Guess we'll have to wait and see who/how many/what level attend her funeral.
So speaking at a trade show is higher on his list of priorities than attending the funeral of a popular and widely respected First Lady. Stay classy, Barry.
