It's Official: Obama's Not Coming to the Wedding

Commentary by Timothy Horrigan; July 29, 2010

This probably doesn't deserve a whole page but what the heck...

President Obama appeared on The View on Thursday, July 29, 2010— and he delved into the war(s) and the economy and the firing of Shirley Sherrod, but the main thing the panel wanted to know was: are he and the First Lady attending the Chelsea Clinton wedding?

The answer is No. He said it's hard enough having one President at the wedding, He also warned Baba Wawa, Whoopi and the other three View-women that they would not be invited to Malia's and Sasha's weddings. (His daughters are 9 and 12 years old, so their weddings are probably two decades in the future from now.)
One of the View panelists, the token rightwinger Elizabeth Hasselbeck, made some disgraceful anti-gay comments a few days back, but the topic of gay marriage did not come up. At least I don't think it did. I didn't actually watch the show; I just looked at a few highlights on Huffington Post.
