This brings back memories of Paul Wellstone’s memorial service — except in that case at least the decedent was in fact in politics and those carrying out the disrespectful display were fellow politicians who couldn’t manage to remove themselves from campaign mode long enough to get through an entire memorial service.

This is just plain sad. Notice at no point does Obama try to quiet the crowd and remind them that the somber occasion isn’t about him (pause for laughter):

There’s no better way to mourn the loss of many families loved ones by having some jackass yell “WE LOVE YOU BARACK OBAMA!” during their memorial service.

At least he didn’t try to sell anybody an Obama t-shirt — as far as I know.

    of course, political rally for him!!!!! the polls dropping drastically, he is finding a way to bring his approval rate back up, preying on the victims and their families and how to accomplish that major task: use it with a memorial svc. in WV for the fallen miners…

    i am originally from WV and this is some of the tactics they they use on people… take a memorial svc. and make a political circus out of it….

    he is such a disgrace to the country and to think that there were idiots that voted for him….

    When we have our last day w/him being in office we will finally get our free nation back…. hopefully we won't be in the socialist / communist country before his term is up…

    by the way, he is against coal, so anyone that voted for him and is wondering about his so called "talk" to the people in Beckley yesterday it is a political scam….,he is for anything that does not have to deal with coal… just remember that… he was preying on these families w/his arrival to our wonderful state….

    I live in Mt. Island, NC and when passing by a Duke power facility and I see coal being stock pilled @ their facilities, it reminds me of our wonderful state of WV and also how cheap it is to burn/ this utility.

    Keep Coal alive…..
    still a WV girl even though I no longer live there….

    Do you ever notice he never stops campaigning? Thought he was supposed to be our president instead all he does is insert himself into every imaginable scenario. But most community organizers have never held a job so they don't know what it is like to actually go to work every day.
