Teddy Roosevelt was President when he was born, and he joined the Army at age 16 to go to war. None of that matters, as the Republican Congress first denies the final World War One veteran the honor of lying in state in the Capitol rotunda, and then they skip his memorial services at Arlington in favor of defunding NPR

President Obama and Vice President Biden were in favor of granting the highest honors to Last Doughboy, and both gentlemen attended the services. Obama stood at the end of the line to show his respect for the last of a generation of American patriots. 

I can find no record of any ranking Republican attending.

I report... you judge.
