Is anyone not wise to the political trickery in disguise…posted by Bill Arnett @ 1:30 PM Permalink …of the Pentagon and the McPain campaign and their collusion to manufacture an opportunity to again denigrate Obama's patriotism?
Excerpts from WaPo.com:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama scrubbed a planned visit to see wounded American servicemen and women in Germany because of concerns raised by the Pentagon that the stop at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center could be seen as a political event, according to Obama's campaign.[…]So now Obama is wrong and by implication unpatriotic for honoring a Pentagon request and the McSlain campaign criticizes him.
"The senator decided out of respect for these servicemen and women that it would be inappropriate to make a stop to visit troops at a U.S. military facility as part of a trip funded by the campaign," senior adviser Robert Gibbs said in a statement.
The campaign of Obama's GOP rival, Sen. John S. McCain, was quick to criticize the decision. "Barack Obama is wrong," McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said. "It is never 'inappropriate' to visit our men and women in the military."
How much more apparent can the collusion between bush, the Pentagon, and McPlain be in light of nonsense such as this BS.
"It is never 'inappropriate' to visit our men and women in the military." Except possibly when the Pentagon asks you not to do so? I guess it's obvious that McSame the insane clown killer would have ignored the Pentagon's reasonable request and would have been delighted to have photo ops with wounded soldiers whether the soldiers/Pentagon wanted it or not.
Not only is McSame seemingly senile, but his campaign staff are all enablers.
