Barack Obama is supposed to be running to be the President of the United States, not the Premier of the EU. How is it that as PowerLine states, Obama had time to go to the gym and sightsee in Berlin but canceled his visit to see wounded soldiers in Germany. Doesn’t this say quite a bit about one’s character? John MCain has put out a political ad stating Obama did not visit troops because he could not bring a camera. That may make a dent to the anointed one’s image.

Who said Obama, the chosen one, had to bring a camera to visit the troops? He could have easily just done the right thing and visited the troops without the spectacle and fanfair. However, the trip was nothing but political. Obama has yet to learn that being Presidential means doing the right and just things when the cameras are no where to be found like thanking the wounded young men and woman, the heros of the US military.
A top aide to Sen. Barack Obama said Friday that the campaign canceled a visit to an American military base in Germany the day before because the Pentagon expressed concerns that it would be viewed as a campaign trip.
The incident is representative of the delicacy with which the Obama campaign has attempted to navigate the Illinois senator’s entire journey abroad, at once staging elaborate photo-ops beamed back to the American media while at insisting that Obama’s trip is not a political one by definition.
