2. HAHAHAHAHAHAH blows up in McSame's face. He Shoots He Scores
the military is thinking: this is the president that will bring us home so we will stop getting killed over here.

Thanks for the advice on going to Iraq, McSame- it worked wonders :rofl:

9. Did anyone else notice all of the smiles and happy looks
on the faces of the soldiers?

I seem to remember that when Bush was popular and he visited the troops, the troops never looked happy.

36. I bet Karl Rove wouldn't let Bush carry a real turkey,
worried that Bush would do something dumb, like let it slide off the pan and make a mess on his shoes.

16. I have never seen the troops
look so happy for a visitor before. Most of them looked like 10-year kids on Christmas morning.

I hope Lieberhole enjoyed seeing that.

11. If that happens in Iraq...it'll make McCain look really bad
They're just praying for some foreign politician to upstage Obama, or for Obama to have some HUGE gaffe (which is pretty unlikely). They know if that doesn't happen, next week SHOULD be pretty good for Obama.

17. Wow, just wow.......... I've never seen so many smiling enthusiastic happy troops
for any politician in ages. That news snip just won the election and was nothing
but air, on a three point political shot. The cameraman and editor really caught
the troops enthusiasm, which I found surprising for CNN.

Thanks

19. Why wouldn;'t the US Troops be happy with Sen. Obama?
Don't they want to get out of Iraq?

Even the gung ho ones seem to want to go to Afghanistan to fight
the Taliban & al Q.

24. Who the fuck do they think is fighting this gawdawful war?!?
It's the low income folks who join up in this all-voluntary military. Unfortunately in this country low income usually means a lot of folks with an abundance of melanin in their skin.

But just ftr, I saw white soldiers in there, and they were just as happy to see our next president as the black soldiers were.

29. Stop making sense!
*nodding in agreement*

Good enough to fight the wars and die in them, but somehow not good enough to be president

without sounding racist?

22. As stupid as this is going to sound...
Obama's making that basket was an important image, because it emphasizes that this is a man who will do exactly what he sets out to do. We need someone with that golden touch after 8 years of gross incompetence from the administration run by a man who turns everything he touches to shit.

I didn't expect anything less, to tell you the truth.

Now I know Fox news isn't going to show one bit of that.
