RUSH: Today is D-Day. How many people do you think know what D-Day is? Do you think, over 40 years old, only half know what D-Day is? Wow. D-Day, of course, the invasion at Normandy, World War II, the Allies invading France and getting it back from the Nazis. I was there. Not when it happened. I went later. Omaha Beach, it’s an amazing place. If you ever get a chance, go to France, Omaha Beach, Normandy. Go to Pointe-Du-Hoc. It’s spelled, for those of you in Rio Linda, Pointe-Du-Hoc. This is where the Army Rangers climbed 200 feet straight up being gunned down by German machine gunners. It’s down the road from Omaha Beach.
Reagan made his speech, his famous Normandy speech at Pointe-Du-Hoc. (imitating Reagan) “These are the boys of Pointe-Du-Hoc,” he said. It’s an amazing place. Obama is not commemorating it, second time in a row, second year in a row. No, he’s fundraising in California. Not even a brief event to mark the 68th anniversary of D-Day. Obama already on his way to San Francisco. He’ll have a couple ‘raisers there before going on to Beverly Hills for two more.
