President Obama Marks the 65th D-Day Anniversary

by The White House • 22,631 views

The President commemorates the day 160,000 Allied troops landed in Normandy, France to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi control. (public domain)

A fine speech, well delivered. I wish the President would loose the teleprompters though, and read his speech from paper. No shame in it.

Thank you Pres Obama, your doing a great job! Rush Limbaugh doesnt give HIS party permission 2 think & these morons refuse 2 own up 2 the fact that their policies & party ruined America over the last 8 years! The GOP also refuses 2 help Obama & the Dems clean up their mess! The GOP is a racist, ignorant party with no good ideas thats thankfully dying. The same percentage of white ppl who voted 4 Reagan voted 4 McCain & they lost in a landslide b/c America has changed. Learn Spanish!

I´ve red that this soldier "Jim Noreen" Obama speaks of has died sitting in a bus. His group was not allowed to enter the cemetry because there was a cetrain fear of swine-flu. They were not even allowed to open a window in the bus, it was getting extremely hot in there. On 6.6. the weather was fine, I was there, too (couldn´t see anything of interest because of barricades by french police).

To be clear I am a very big fan of President Obama. Having said that there is a certain naiveté to his words. In describing the Nazi's he just as easily could have been speaking of Stalin. No soldier is given a choice about staying in the boat or hiding in the hedge row - each and every one would know to do so is a death sentence. Remember the heros but its important to remember things that were negative. His mentioning of individuals - that was special.

Oh yea Europe is bankrupt.... Major global financial institutions disappearing of the face of the earth in the matter of days, GIGANTIC car company's with hundreds of supply company's and together millions of workers so poorly mangaged by CEOs and poorly supervised by government institutions that there is no other solution then government ownership in the end. All of this and hundreds of similar cases will leave USA with millions out of work.

Thank God for what brought the liberation of Europe from an indescribable evil. Thank you America, Canada et al. I have included a gospel message on this day of celebration on our channel if any would care to view.

This view you have (unfortunately many other Americans) that any tiny percentage of socialistic values in a society equals Marxism, dictatorship, no free press etc is just such a big proof that USA is only second to North Korea in isolation. A big part of the worlds most prosperous nations run on a semi socialistic system, look at Europe and none of those systems let the global economy tank. So think before you speak and dont forget to have your pets and (more importantly) your self neutered.

@ThePanzerWarMachine Barack Obama was born on the island of Oahu in 1961, 2 years after Hawaii was annexed and given statehood even if he was born before 1959 he still would have been considered an american citizen because he was born on an american territory. If you think im wrong, look at puerto rico, their also a US territory and if your born their your a US citizen do your research before some teen who's bored makes you look like an idiot

Hitler was a coward lets no forget he fooled the german people and he fooled mussolini and the american people. and still this day we have ingnorant and rebilious neo nazi groups in america. God bless the world not just americans and pray a man like hitler never NEVER lives again. because on him in the 1940s we had nazi sympathizers that used george washington as a SS idol. Blame hitler Blame That Monster not the man in ider side of the war. God bless the world and death to the neo-traitors

Yes we can. It is the most wonderful time of the year. Obama has shown such leadership and so had Nancy Pelosi in passing Healthcare Reform. It surely is historic. Democrats have been the Party of doing: 1) 1935 Social Security Bill (F Roosevelt(D)) 2) 1964 Civil Rights Bill (L. Johnson (D)) 3) 1965 Medicare Bill (L. Johnson(D)) 1995 We should have had Health Reform (under Clinton) It took at further 15 years to get (4) 2010 Healthcare Reform Bill (B.Obama (D))

@Bear43616 Who brought up Bush? Bush was terrible but not half as bad as this extreme anti constitution Obama. Still where do you imply that I am a racist because I believe those who hold socialist Ideologies are nothing but dung? Obama is dung because of his Ideologies, Not the color of his skin.

@ThePanzerWarMachine but the treaty was never signed by the senate so instead it was made into the territory of hawaii because of the newlands resolution, because of this natives to hawaii who had children were now >>LEGAL US CITIZENS<< and could begin voting in politics, plantation owners that used to always have power in politics began to fall due to the loss in hawaiian support. Those immigrants began campaigning for statehood, this began in the 1950s, in 1959 hawaii was annexed

If the Germans took France they could advance on across the English Channel and take Britain so it was a success but came with a big sacrifice loosing thousands of American, Canadian, and British allies.

lol, and Europe is finally waking up to the fact thatSocialism is destroying and bankrupting them. Why do you think that all over Europe recently, Conservatives and Anti Socialism right wingers won landslides in many elections while Leftists lost overwhelmingly. The road to comunism and all out socialism starts with just a little theft and redistribution socialism.

@ThePanzerWarMachine im not a fan of obama but people saying that he wasn't born in the US or some other crap like that seriously need to look stuff up and know their countries history The territory of hawaii had a history with the united states since 1896 since president mckinley was elected after the queen(yes hawaii had a queen look it up) was opened to persuasion by president grover cleveland. After long negotiations john sherman agreed to an annexation treaty (this got the ball rolling)

Who said anything about Fox and Ann Coulter? Oh wait, you leftist socialist koolaid drinkers, when confronted with opposition, always bring out the Koolaid talking point responses of either calling someone a racist or a fox news watcher. Even though all the news media has become Government media lapdogs who would never dare question the socialist Messiah Obama Marx.

Obama Marx knows no history, Obama Marx was well rehearsed by his advisors into this history before he spoke. Im sure his advisors prepared alot of notes He could look at to make him look like he knew what he was talking about. Obama Marx is a leftist socialist chicago street thug who wouldn't know history except what he read in Marx and Engels Socialist propoganda books.
