Rhett, don't. I shall faint.

Just because the photo makes me happy...

BTW: these are the vary same troops who the right expects to join them in their threatened anti-tax, teabagger revolt against Obama and the federal government. Good luck with that.

what makes that the best is this was an unannounced visit, meaning that they didn't vet every single soldier in the audience as a supporter.

and given the 'I love you' comment, they weren't ordered to be quiet.

that's adorable.
nice to see a political figure who isn't either always putting his foot in his mouth or being pelted with rotten eggs.

you lucky twonks.

Hmmm... I don't see any flying army boots. I wonder if it might be because the troops are glad to have a C-in-C who's actually willing to listen to (and able to understand) people who know more about a situation than he does?

If only Air Force One could hold 130,000 people...

Well, to keep everyone up-to-date, the way the tighty-righties are explaining this away is to go on about how all these audiences were vetted and hand-picked.

Only troops who loved Obama, they claim, were allowed to be there.

Also, and here's another meme, Obama is teh suck because he didn't stop by Normandy to pay his respects to the troops who died in WWII.

Seriously, this is what they're saying.

It's enough to make me let them use rotating machinery, I tell you.

Heh. You said teabagger.

That's what I hear but that didn't keep the right wing from screaming "plants" anyways.


Or shoes.


Yep. It is nice.


Word. They have to have some space for all of Obama's teleprompters.


And what you said.

The Chinuk-

If Obama did stop at Normandy do you think he'd pay his respects to fallen S.S. soldiers like Reagan did?
