The Pentagon said Barack Obama phoned wounded U.S. soldiers at Landstuhl Regional Medical center in Germany today a day after a firestorm developed over his cancellation of plans to visit the base and Ramstein Air Force Base.
Pentagon spokeswoman Elizabeth Hibner told Bloomberg News that Obama was told by the military he could visit the bases as an offical but not as a candidate and without campaign staff.
Obama chose to cancel the visit and instead phoned it in to the troops.
All better now. /s
I wonder if the “campaign” photographed the phone call.
Anyone want to put together an imagined conversation? “Hi I am Barack Hussein Obama and wanted to thank you for your service in an unjust war...”
Did he phone from the elliptical trainer he chose to use instead of visiting the troops?
Hey, at least he didn’t send an email instead.
“Hey, at least he didnt send an email instead.’
To be truthful he did send an email. However it was stopped by the spam filters for being full of BS.
THAT SOB! He makes me physically ill.
His very name sounds like a noise made while vomiting. BARACCCCHHHHH!!!!
Good...it’s better he doesn’t visit them.He’s not fit to breathe the same air as them,period. They don’t need that circus crap around them,that’s for sure.Heroes and guardian angels don’t mix well with antiChrist gasbags like The Obamination.
“And Michelle wanted me to tell you that for the first time in her life, she has never been more proud of you troops.”
A day late, doesn’t cut it, Obamanation!
You snubbed these guys and gals because there was no opporturnity for photos.
(I can’t type what else I want to say here.)
Families of our wounded warriors, we love you. Obvious this Obama guy doesn’t. What a slap in the face to our troops.
No matter the size of his ears, he’s the most politically tone deaf politician in years.
Looks like he waited to see what the damages would be.
I've heard MANY politicians (mostly Republicans) will visit VA hospitals WITHOUT A NEWS CREW - gasp! - because it is the right thing to do. Barry could have visited the troops in the hospital - maybe one or two would have been from Illinois - and visit as a US Senator! What a concept.
It would also be an opportunity to see a "reverse-Patton" whereby an injured soldier slaps the crap our of Barry for being a coward and stinking up a place of honor, then send Barry to the front.
“Obama chose to cancel the visit and instead phoned it in to the troops.”
Just an FYI to those freepers who aren’t sports fans: “phoned it in” is a sports term used when a team who is out of the running for a good season plays poorly because they don’t care anymore.
It is much safer to make a phone call to enemy territory.
It was very selfish of him not to visit the wounded troops. He could have laid his hands on each one of them and healed them all.
Hang up time./Just Asking - seoul62..........
Adding insult to injury....what a jerk this guy is!
LOL! Little CYA going on there now.
Can anyone look at this guy and not see a CiC who won’t turn and face wherever the wind blows him?
