Found this photo at Gateway Pundit.... see the Messiah did meet with the troops....so there you bitter gun clingers.
Uhhhhh, I No See Picky............
I see picky.
I see a Red X there sir. Is that the point of your post? If so, I get it.
No....it was there in preview and when I posted it....then disappeared.
linked photos can vanish if the hosting site hits a bandwidth limit.
If you right click on the X, go down to properties, and copy the link into a second browser, open the picture, and then go back and refresh thread, pic appears.
Why is the photo not showing up ....when it shows up in preview?
Obama takes time to thank the Polizei.
asa consheenshush obsoivar Ied jush like to shah ahhhhh.
Post 10 can give you a work around. Had an old freeper in HMTL bootcamp show me once.
The site you linked it from might have cross site linking turned off. Best save it and upload it to a place like Photobucket.
If you can get me the img src URL, I can do it for ya.
See Jet sees the picky.
Your computer has recognized it because you went to the orig site.
See it now?
Got a 404 on that URL.
In order to make the whole thread work, you need to save the image and upload it to fotki.com or photobucket.com.
Then use the URL from your Fotki account picture so that all can view it.
Well, heck, and I stole it straight from the properties of the pic....
Gotta be Dog’s fault then.
Yes,LOL!!! This could be a Fun Thread!
I clicked on it and it asked me if I wanted to open the file. I wonder if that's because of the browser?
The guy, second from the left, looks like Steve Martin.
I KNOW the meaning of the look he has on his face...
Smiling and looking away...
It says “jeez...what in the h@ll am I doing here ?!?!?!
Kick the Dog.
Speaking of “see it now”
Have you guys seen this?
Awww, I wouldn't do that... I was just playing democrat, you know, blame someone else. (innocently blinking)
I’m not too sure that’s not him. :-)
AND....check out guy, second from right...
the “Little O” is extending his hand and this guy very clearly does NOT want to go there...
Unsure. I got a Google 404 error on it and there was no file or other link.
Looks to me like the German equivalent of The Village People.
Thanks for posting...hilarious :-)
The first time I watched it I just sat and giggled. :-)
An e-mail I received just today:
Hello everyone, As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to ‘The War Zone’. I wanted to share with you what happened. He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle, got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at Bagram.
As the Soldiers where lined up to shake his hand, he blew them off and didn’t say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their service.
So really he was just here to make a showing for the Americans back home that he is their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way over here, you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they are providing for you. I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheer leaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States. I just don’t understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-in-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.
If this is blunt and to the point, I am sorry, but I wanted you all to know what caliber person he really is. What you see in the news is all fake.

That would be funny.
He's simply going through the motions, but under the surface those involved know exactly where someone like Bill Clinton or Obama stand. He's not liked by the soldier, and he doesn't like them either, it's a near hostile (In a political sense) environment. In such an environment he'll talk but not entertain real open questions. He'll go in and play basketball and have his pictures taken, but doesn't really want to look the leadership in the eyes and ask what they need, or talk about what the developments on the ground are.......
I've seen this myself. In 1997/1998 (I forget the exact year) Gore landed at Fort Benning. They had to nearly coerce people to show up at the airstrip so they would have a crowd of waiving American flags for him. Since they can't “force” people to go, they went to building 4 (Where the lecture halls are for IOBC, OCS, IMLC, IOAC.....) and offered people to go to the airfield. Of course people went, but not because they cared. LOL
These guys (Obama) know their crowds, but they still have to show their face. It makes him more palatable to main stream America.
