Skip to comments.President Obama to Visit Walter Reed Friday

White House officials tell ABC News that President Obama will visit with wounded soldiers tomorrow at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The trip was scheduled before the incident today at Fort Hood, officials said. President Obama visited wounded troops at Walter Reed as president-elect in January and has visited wounded troops at Bethesda Naval Hospital as senator. Last week the president made a secret late-night journey to Dover Air Force Base to participate in the dignified transfer of troops and DEA agents killed in Afghanistan. He is in the midst of making up his mind about a new strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan, which administration sources say will likely include sending more troops.

Why? To tell the soldiers they deserved it?
Obummer will tell us it’s all George Bush’s fault.
Nope - he invited 12 news organizations to go with him to Dover!
The liars at the WH - likely came up with this announcement after Zero’s despicable performance today before and during his comments about the Ft. Hood massacre.
I do not care what they are claiming - that this visit was already planned.
I was just going to say something about fast damage control.
Power, pop, and probing from Jake Tripper. Really? That reads more like a press release than a news report.
“Zeros despicable performance today...”
I hope this gets the attention it deserves once things calm down. I was astounded at the childishness and amateurism displayed by the sack of socialist garbage in the immediate aftermath of such a serious situation.
I’m sure the troops are “thrilled”.
Arrogant POS doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near our heroes.
It wasn’t a secret at all.
He SHOULD visit the wounded and recovering and their families, often. It's his duty. It's expected.
That said, he should not use them as props in a photo op.
Good on the troops for respecting the CIC. They show much honor.
Mister Obama's real feelings toward our precious troops were on display earlier today...the light-hearted full-smile shout-outs preceding a somber announcement about the horrific massacre at Fort Hood.
I suspect that the real "Obama" was his shout-out.
Zero will be in the company of those who are much greater than he is.
The troops that he is going to visit tomorrow are probably going to end up thinking that the ones that were killed were the lucky ones.
Maybe Obama is going there because he wants to give another “shout out” just hearing him say that today, after 12 of our heroes were brutally murdered, this putz goes on National TV and gives shout outs..who the hell did 52 percent of Americans elect, a President or a rapper. Saying he is a disgrace to the Presidency doesn’t go far enough
This is all a part of his Mystical Afghanistan Decision Tour. He has to go see the wounded before deciding and much much much much more.
Who will our Liar-In-Chief give a shout out to this time?
Obama, leave the f’n cameras home you assh*ole
