Skip to comments.Obama Visits Afghanistan, Will Make Televised Address Tuesday Evening [Free Campaign Commercial]
Posted on 05/01/2012 1:26:29 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
President Obama has arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan, on a surprise trip to sign a strategic agreement with Afghanistan. He will address the nation at 7:30 p.m. EDT from Bagram Air Base on Tuesday evening. In going to Afghanistan on the ninth anniversary of the most notorious example of premature presidential gloating, Obama risks turning the high point of his presidency into a political weapon for his enemies. But it will be how the president conducts himself while in the war zone that will determine if this trip is lumped in with George W. Bush's donning of a flight suit and appearing on an aircraft carrier under a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

I find it interesting we don’t allow our football players to taunt the other team saying they should act like they have been there and we have to go through this bs.
Obama’s “brilliant” Democratic campaign staff apparently believe the public is so stupid that said public won’t see this as political. Obama is the “Greek column” President, using imagery and symbolism to cover up his laziness and lack of interest in his job.
I guess George E. Condon Jr. will be watching it with his pants around his ankles.
ANOTHER f’n address..seriously he is doing everything possible to milk this for every last drop that it’s worth..Obama is a disgrace to the White House..I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE his stinkin guts!!
He’ll do it again on the morning of Nov 6th too, and the lame stream media will run it all day.
For the dull-brained Americans who still fail to grasp the meaning of that banner (not here in FR, but in general): THE BANNER REFERRED TO THE COMPLETION OF THE MISSION OF THE ABE LINCOLN, NOT THE IRAQ WAR!!!!!
Just givin’ the props their troops. Er, uh...troops their props. Yeah, that’s it.
This is a new height of stupidity and narcissism for the President. He seems totally indifferent to the added danger he is creating for our tropps - trying to protect his sorry ass while he does his end zone dance. Nothing like rubbing your enemies faces in it - on THEIR turf. Stupid!!!
Somebody at the so far useless RNC had better be finding out how much this campaign trip is costing us, and use it. Everyone knows what the Emperor is doing, and he needs to be called on the fact that he is once again using our money for his campaign trips. This is really getting friggen ridiculous. Not only that, but the same networks that refused to cover Romneys speech are going to cover this? Somebody please get this POS out of our White House!!
The RNC has already started to send to protests to the GSA.
Us former WalMart shoppers, who can’t afford to shop there anymore, will enjoy watching it while dining on our .88cent Banquet frozen dinners...mine has a brownie in it for dessert! Must be my lucky day...
He doesn’t have any other achievements so he has to milk this for all it’s worth.
I’ve made it through four years without hearing that flap-eared punk give an address, speech, etc. In fact, I’ve heard very little that’s come out of his mouth. It will make me happy to continue on in that vein tonight.
According to my estimate, at 7:30 p.m. (EST) it will be 4:00 a.m. (May 3rd) in Kabul.
Bet the troops (who will no doubt be "ordered" to appear) are thrilled over that.
THANK you for that, Scott!
The truth is so refreshing when one is bombarded with lie after lie after lie after lie......
No details about “the agreement” but my gues is; Our muslims will help your muslims to further Islam in the world .. wink wink.
Only if people watch him. I never do.
