Myth in the Making

This will be interesting to follow:

The 65th Anniversary of D-Day is fast approaching.  Barack Obama will attend the events on June 6th as George Bush did in 2004 for the sixtieth memorial service.  Here is the rub, as of now Obama’s State Department has asked (read demanded) the French government not allow tour guide services to operate that day. It is a big day for Normandy tourism. Yet, the king will not allow those not connected with government to enjoy the day.  Obama is very important you know.  This is an unprecedented request.  I hope the French come to their senses and deny it.

Of course, this bit of writing by this guy, with nary a link to even an article in French, much less English, is taken as gospel by the usual suspects.

But that’s not the only myth in the making from Mr. Romano:

Compare that with 2004.  Security was tight as President Bush and other world leaders were in attendance, but the event was still open to all.  A friend relayed the story of waiting in line to use a port-a-potty (a French port-a-potty no doubt, yuck, believe me.)  She looks to her left and who he is in the next line waiting patiently?  President Bush.  Sure he had Secret Service nearby, but he waited like everyone else.

Yeah, right.
