As a life-long registered Republican and as a veteran, I guess I should have been offended when I read this in my e-mail. Instead I went to Snopes. Story isn't true. O.K. Another attempt to smear a politician by bringing up non-issues. Certainly, if you have issue-differences with the actions being taken by the president (of which there are many to choose from), question those actions. But attendance at a football game? Give me a break.
By the way, President Roosevelt did not stay away from the Army-Navy game "because he had a war going on." He avoided public appearances that would result in his being seen in a wheel chair. He could not have walked into the stadium, gotten to his seat, etc. without it - to far, even with his crutches (which he also tried to avoid using in public.)
