OK, so I actually read the brief report. Here is what it says:
“Tonight Barack Obama gave a speech at Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan. US soldiers were not allowed.”

This is an insult to the men. These guys are putting their lives on the line for our protection and the Dweeb in Chief doesn’t give a damn about encouraging and thanking them.

This is a campaign photo op.

Attention: This man is an absolute disgrace. We MUST do what ever it takes to get him out of office. (Even vote for Romney — but only if he picks a conservative VP.)

White House Insider claims this trip was planned at least 3 months ago and told Karzai that he was coming to celebrate the anniversary. The pact that they signed was a ruse.

I await details to see if he actually met with any troops during this trip.

While his minions celebrate May Day in the US, Obama struggles to salute, rather than bow to, a dark shaggy thing attached to a flagpole.

When I think of Obama flying at taxpayer expense to Afghanistan to give a speech to an empty warehouse to create footage for a campaign ad, I am reminded of the President in the film Idiocracy.

Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho is the first professional wrestler and porn star to be elected President in the year 2505.

Actually, I think we would be happier with Camacho in charge of our government than the current idiot.

wait a minute- you mean he went there and as it says “
“I know the battle is not yet over,” Obama told troops in a speech at Bagram Air Base. “And there’s going to be heartbreak and pain and difficulty ahead. But there’s a light on the horizon because of the sacrifices you’ve made.”

you mean they weren’t in the same room with him(he gave a speech to the troops - it was video)?????
this was separate from the speech to the nation tonight right, he gave two speeches, or one?
