Letter: President should have attended Scalia’s funeral

President should have attended Scalia’s funeral

By his refusal to attend the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, President Obama once again provides the nation insight to what he really is: An arrogant, classless, clueless, shallow, self-centered bigot.

Had Scalia been a liberal, or a woman, or black, or a Muslim, Obama would have been in attendance, and would have eulogized him with high praise.

Scalia was none of these. He was a champion of the Constitution and believed that its original intent should not be altered by wishy-washy, feel-good, whimsical liberal interpretation.

Obama seems to believe the Constitution is a bothersome document written by wealthy white men that should be swept aside by presidential decree at his whim, and the rights of the citizenry be damned. After all, he’s smarter than all of us yokels.

Shame on Obama. Our lame-duck excuse for a chief executive is a disgrace to the office.
