Senator and Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama canceled a visit to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, a U.S. military hospital located at the U.S. air base in Ramstein, Germany.
Let me see if I understand this correctly. Barack Obama, who wants to be Commander in Chief, thumbs his nose at those entrusted to insure and protect the safety and freedom of America. Why? Well, so far, we have gotten two lame ass excuses; the first one, the visit was canceled because the campaign thought, “it would be inappropriate to make a stop to visit troops at a U.S. military facility as part of a trip funded by the campaign.” and the second one; it was the military that requested that Obama not make the trip to the base. The military is steadfastly denying that allegation.
My take on the situation is this. NO PUBLIC SERVANT with the opportunity to visit these heros should ever pass it up! I don’t care what the circumstances are. These people put their very lives on the line so the rest of us, including Barack Obama, can live safely and freely. What he did, regardless of the circustances is a slap in the face to all of us who have worn a uniform to protect and serve this country!
Let me tell you what else he did, as a United States Senator his job is to show these brave men and women the proper respect for the sacrifices they have made in the service of their country. He did not do that. That, my friends, is unforgiveable! Enough said.
