State funerals revealing

January 15, 2014 Letters to the Editor

I wonder what criteria President Barack Obama used in deciding which state funeral to attend in reference to Nelson Mandela and Ariel Sharon.

He attends Mandela’s funeral and sends his underling, Vice President Joe Biden, to represent the U.S. at Sharon’s.

Taken together with the blowing-off of the Gettysburg celebration, they give an indication where his priorities lie.
