I'm trying to imagine the political environment that Washington Democrats occupy. A President glibly lays out that analogy, and it is received — without any wincing or taint of disgust — as awesome inspiration. These are the minds that will be making decisions for us for quite a while.
Don't you just love it that a bunch of politicians seem to consider "I might not keep this office!" as a 'sacrifice'? News for you, you bastards, you're not SUPPOSED to stay there as a damned lifelong career; the fact that you consider it such means you shouldn't be there in the first place.
And I'll note in the comments you have lots of lefties who seem to have completely blanked out eight years of "Bushitler!" and other such bullcrap. As usual.
From the lady at Villainous Company,
Life is full of mysteries, but chief among them in this Marine wife's mind at the moment is, "Just how stupid does this White House think we are?" If the events of the past few months have shown us anything, it's that Barack Obama has little enthusiasm for - or interest in - one of the most important duties of an American President: his role as Commander in Chief of the nation's armed forces.
and she notes this:
Instead of comforting his troops, President Obama decided to spend the weekend at Camp David.(And, I suspect, he realizes that dragging the whole damned press corp along to take pictures wouldn't be well-received; and if he can't get publicity shots, he just doesn't think it's worth going)
Even if one were inclined to give President Obama the benefit of the doubt and assume that he had asked Former President Bush and Mrs. Bush to visit the wounded soldiers because the Bushes live in Texas, why would he ask this of his predecessor and not get on Air Force One overnight to get down there himself?
Why would he not go to be with those whom he is charged to send into battle and who were so horrifyingly betrayed by one of their own?
Because he doesn't give a rat's backside, that's why not.
The lady closes with this:
