What was Obama thinking chewing gum at a memorial service? You can take the man out of America, you can't take America out of the man.—

President Obama was to be on his best behavior at the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy today. He almost passed muster, but was that a big wad of gum in his mouth during the solemn ceremony? Twitter seemed to think so.
Judge for yourself (via Weasel Zippers):
obama shows his hatred & disrespect for D-DAY vets: obama chews gum like a thug during the ceremony. CLASSLESS. DISGRACEFUL.—
