This Tells Me All I Need To Know About Obama

Much has been made about the fact that Obama didn't visit Landstuhl or Rammstein during the German leg of his world tour. Seems he didn't think it was worth stopping off to visit the wounded soldiers there because he couldn't bring along his cameras.
A U.S. military official tells NBC News they were making preparations for Sen. Barack Obama to visit wounded troops at the Landstuhl Medical Center at Ramstein, Germany on Friday, but "for some reason the visit was called off."

One military official who was working on the Obama visit said because political candidates are prohibited from using military installations as campaign backdrops, Obama's representatives were told, "he could only bring two or three of his Senate staff member, no campaign officials or workers." In addition,
"Obama could not bring any media. Only military photographers would be permitted to record Obama's visit."

The official said "We didn't know why" the request to visit the wounded troops was withdrawn. "He (Obama) was more than welcome. We were all ready for him."
There you have it. He had scheduled the visit, was informed that no media could be present, visit gets un-scheduled, fast, quick and in a hurry.

This single event tells me everything I could ever want to know about Obama. The man wants to be Commander in Chief, but he can't visit wounded soldiers unless the press covers it? Are our soldiers nothing more than a photo op for the chosen one on the way to his coronation? It sure seems that way.

Here's a little story for you from my own experience to solidify why I would never vote for this man for any position. I was traveling over the fourth of July weekend. On my way to my connecting gate there were a couple of young soldiers walking through the airport, giving high fives to every person they passed. Every single person they walked up to gave them the high five except the two long-haired, hippy types wearing Obama T-shirts. They turned their backs on the soldiers and walked away. Looks like they were following the example set by their messianic leader.

I have absolutely no use at all for anyone who disrespects our military like that, U.S. Senator or not.

I question his patriotism. And his character. And if this is an example of the hopeychangitude he wants to bring to the country, I want no part of it.

Update: Well, this explains it all. According to Andrea Mitchell's repitition of an Obama camp rumor, Mccain used his Pentagon connections to sabotage Obama's visit to the wounded troops. And people still want to vote for this ass-clown. Boggles the mind.

h/t Ace.

So you're going to take this post down now that it's been demonstrated that it's not true. right? And maybe apologize to the candidate for calling him an ass-clown, which is kind of disrespectful, right? And maybe think a little that calling people names like "ass-clown" doesn't really add a lot to our political discourse, at least not a lot positive, and as a patriot you need to be a responsible citizen and a positive influence, right?

Oh, wait; I forget. You're a conservative, and rules don't apply to conservatives.

Forget I mentioned it.
