Obamania Summer Vanity Tour & Photo-Shoot (1)

The Media Extravaganza stopped briefly in Kuwait and then traveled to Afghanistan. As he was leaving Andrews Air Force Base Senator Obama told reporters:

“I look forward to seeing what the situation on the ground is. I want to, obviously, talk to the commanders and get a sense both in Afghanistan and in Baghdad of, you know, what the most, their biggest concerns are, and I want to thank our troops for the heroic work that they’ve been doing.”

Senator Obama affirmed several times in the past two weeks that his Iraq “plan” in already set stone. He said last week…

“I will give the military a new mission, and that mission is to end the war.”

By “end the war” Obama apparently does not mean that there will be peace in Iraq. “End the war” means President Obama will announce to the world, including Al Qaeda in Iraq, that all American troops will be pulled out of Iraq on a predetermined schedule, no matter what the consequences, whether or not the Iraqis are prepared to secure their nation without help.

So, we have a couple of questions:

  1. Why does Senator Obama care what concerns the Commanders have?
  2. What would he do if they were concerned about pulling all American resources out of Iraq before Iraqi forces were fully prepared to fight Al Qaeda and the other assorted bad guys on their own?

We wonder if any of the media herd following the Summer Vanity Tour will ask these questions. We’re not holding our breath.

    The Media Herd ask Obama tough questions? LOL!

    He’s the pop star du jour! A media sensation! They don’t even care about his criminal associations.

    This election has become much more about Hollywood-style popularity than policy, or heaven forbid … political philosophy.

    Change! You know … those few coins left over when Obama’s done spending your paycheck.
