On his way home from his trip to Asia early this morning, the President stopped at Osan Air Force Base in South Korea to meet with the troops. They were of course excited to see the commander-in-chief. Here is his response
"You guys make a pretty good photo op," the president said.
Nice. Can you imagine what the press reaction would be had President Bush used these words? This is a very disrespectful view of the people who voluntarily put thier lives on the line to protect our nation. We need to stop politicizing the troops. We need the brave in order to remain the land of the free.
This statement was put into a blog article in the Washington Post about the announcement today that the decision about troop levels in Afghanistan will not be made until after the Thanksgiving holiday.
