"What do you call someone who stages a Ball, then skips it?"

Implied here is Obama staging this event and then skipping it... At least that's what I thought I was going to read.

As I read the article that is not true. Did I miss something?

"For the second time President Barack Obama will not attend an Inaugural event ball held to recognize Medal of Honor recipients.
A spokesman for the Presidential Inaugural Committee confirmed Friday that Obama would attend only the official Inaugural Ball and the Commander-in-Chief’s ball -- the latter of which is just for servicemembers and where MoH recipients are special guests.
Obama was criticized by some four years ago when he became the first President to skip the American Legion’s Salute to Heroes ball since it was first held in 1953."

................................

The Bsll he skipped was one held traditionally for a long time.

Instead, he will have attended three, not two Balls, other than this Traditional Military Bsll.

He, as he directed through his Inaugural Committee, Created his own Alternative "Commander in Chief's Ball".
