OK, I'm done using you for my own slimy political purposes. You can all go back to sitting in those damp, smelly fighting holes with the bugs crawling all over you and the sand all up in your crevases. Try to not get too depressed while you're freezing your nads off and missing Christmas in this hell-hole while I enjoy Christmas with my family in the White House.

Every president in recent memory has used the troops for photo ops. Even those who admitted to disliking soldiers. In other words Bill Clinton. That said so what if Obama did the same as those who came before him?
What I do find ironic is that those on the left had issues with Bush for doing the same thing. Now that its Obama its ok.

no, we simply point out that their hero did the same thing. We thinkers understand why they do it.

At least Obama is open about it. You know where you stand with him. Unlike others that try to be weasels about it.

Honestly, you RWers are so lost, hanging on every article and every comment, digging and probing, looking for anything you can to try to make the guy look bad.

The desperation is palpable.

LOL. Obama's polls are cratering, Republicans are beating the Dems in generic congressional polls, The Dems can't pass signature legislation despite bullet proof majorities. I think the word you are looking for is energized.

Why can't the left ever say "boy what Obama said was just plain stupid"? Why do they feel the need to defend the indefensible?

"You guys make a pretty good photo op," the president said.
