He's a peculiar man.
Unable to resist the urge to give one last snub to the Supreme Court justice who opposed him at every turn, President Obama will not attend the funeral of Antonin Scalia on Saturday.
You could even say that he has principles.

It's not a state funeral. We don't do that for Supreme Court justices.

How would it look to be caught giving somebody a high-five or cracking a smile during you 'few words'?

The only justice to be granted a state funeral by Congress was William Howard Taft, who served as chief justice from 1921 to 1930, after serving as president from 1909 to 1913. Taft laid in state at the Capital Rotunda.

Obama To Skip Scalia Funeral — Let’s All Overreact! | Above the Law




... that’s all proper etiquette requires. But surely we’ll let this become a tempest in a teapot anyway.






Blame Obama!

It's a small person that allows his personal pettiness to overcome his professional etiquette.


I tend to abstain from going to funerals of people I do not like as well, but I've also never been a head of state either. I think there's a certain etiquette that's supposed to go with the job.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not singling out Obama, there've been a few tactless moves by various heads of state of so-called civilized countries over the years.

Good decision. Why tarnish the memory of a great American with one whose loyalties are truly in question? Faux Muslims are uncomfortable in Christian places of worship.

Well they're both vampires. One sucks the blood one sucks the trust. And both give nothing in return. Grampa is better looking than cruz though cruz looks like a rat face.

When you despise someone and they are not a member of your club you may wait and be ready to pounce on every little opportunity that comes along. You have to be ready to be criticized for every thing you do, and everything you do not do. That's the nature of politics in America. If you're not in my camp you are the enemy to be under my magnifying glass 24/7 . none of us can measure up to each others expectations because we expect too damn much from each other. Obama is no exception.

To be fair GW Bush was under the same scrutiny.
