    Default Record Broken at Army vs Navy Football

    A little known bit of history was made at this year's Army vs. Navy football game. The media sat on it, so did CBS Sports and ESPN. Obviously they were not about to take on the White House.

    Obama is the 1st President to not attend the game in the 110 year rivalry.

    Is he not a sports fan? No, big interest in basketball. Not a football fan? Doesn't matter, if you're a sports fan, this is THE RIVALRY in college football.

    No, it was clearly a snub aimed at the Armed Forces by the President and Commander and Chief of the Military.

    Right, he did not attend the game, but he was not the first president in 110 years to not attend as others have claimed. According to snopes, several presidents missed the game in various years and the one's listed never attended during their presidency.

    If Obama missing it once is an obvious snub of our military, what is Reagan or Bush I never attending?

    Obama is too busy implementing his socialist policies to take time off to attend a football game

    Why let the truth get in the way of a good story?

    Whether there was precedent or not.... THIS President, given his reputation, earned or not, made a mistake by not going. I'll bet he makes the one in 2011.
