Doin' It Right

No matter which "excuse" you believe (I've counted at least five, so far) the sock puppet pissed on the troops at Lanstuhl. That's just a fact, regardless of whatever the observer's politics might be.

There's been loads of pundits talkin' their trash, making excuses, throwin' accusations and other various things that just move the air/ink/electrons around, but those of us of the military-type have a different take on that sort of thing.

First, here's a brief ass-chewin' of the dem-messiah, delivered as only a Command Sergeant Major can do it:

"Having spent two years as the Command Sergeant Major at Landstuhl Hospital, I am always grateful for the attention that facility receives from members of Congress. There is no more important work done by the United States Army than to care for those who have been wounded in the service [of] our country. While Americans troops remain engaged in two hot wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is a steady stream of casualties to the hospital, and a steady stream of visitors who wish to meet with those troops and thank them for their service.
Senator Obama has explained his decision to cancel a scheduled visit there by blaming the military, which would not allow one of his political advisers to join him in a tour of the facility. Why Senator Obama felt he needed an adviser with him to visit U.S. troops is unclear, but if Senator Obama isn't comfortable meeting wounded American troops without his entourage, perhaps he does not have the experience necessary to serve as commander in chief."

Next, the crew at Mudville Gazette - in particular,
"Mrs. Grayhawk" - have discovered an article about someone who DID visit our wounded troops, and did it right .

Now, if only more of OUR OWN politicians had as much of a clue.

...and no, I am NOT going to hold my breath waitin' on THAT to happen.....

That cartoon says it all, a shameful commander-in-chief he would make. I guess that's why he's pushing the expensive peace corps so passionately. That way he can give the military a proper screwing over, make every leftist slimeballs dream come true.
