It's probably more that Obama considers the defeat of Nazi Germany to be owed to the heroic efforts of the Red Army, and doesn't consider the Second Front to be important enough to be mentioned.
I remember reading something about John Keegan meeting with Clinton before the 50th anniversary commemoration in 1994--and urging him to make sure the Poles were included in the ceremonies. Otherwise Clinton would have been oblivious to the fact that Polish troops had taken part in the invasion of Normandy.
