    Hope he finishes the job and brings the troops back home as promised.

    I vividly recall that only an infinetesimal micro bit of so called Libs wanted to bring the troops home from Afghanistan. Us reational thinking independents and most "Libs" said that we should not abbandon the war in Afghanistan and I even advocated for stealth incursions into Pakilstan. I also vividly recall that the Bush appologists told us that B II won the war in Afghanistan and all was well to focus on that needless war in Iraq!!!

    Look, I was pissed that Bush made these trips for political purposes, and the episode of the plastic turkey sank home that point. However, I heard just about EVERYBODY on your side saying the same thing, but supporting Obama for doing it. IMHO, this is the height of political douchebaggery. Why can't you just call Obama's actions politically reprehensible, like you did when Bush went to Iraq? The letter after a president's name should not be the reason you either support him or bash him. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. I bashed a lot of my fellow Conservatives over this issue, and now it is time for me to bash you. You just can't bash Bush, and then give Obama a free pass over the same damn thing. It's wrong. Sorry if I sound a little pissed, but I hate hypocrites with a passion.

    I don't get it either.
    He's the president; we're fighting a war over there.
    Why shouldn't he go there?
    Are people mad because he went, or because he went unannounced?

    I feel that a pesident needs to go to a War zone at times if only to show moral suuport to our teoops. I realy hate it when apresident from either party goes over to a war zone only when:

    an election is getting near

    political heat is being applied to the POTUS'S BUTT

    the POTUS was caught with a bimbo and needs to get the spotlightligt off himself

    It's the Commander in Chief's prerogative to visit US troops whenever he chooses. Perhaps he'll call you next time to get your approval.

    Personally, I'm glad he went. Regardless of how I feel about his politics, he's showing the troops enough respect to visit them when they're deployed in combat areas. That's good enough for me.
