Obama Cancels Visit to Troops in Germany After Being Told No Media Allowed
Now we get the truth behind the snub. According to NBC News (of all places), Obama nixed the military base visit after being told that no cameras and no media would be permitted. With that, Senator GDamn went off to the gym and snubbed the very troops he wants to lead.
One word: Disgrace. Two Words: GOP ad.
This from NBC:
One military official who was working on the Obama visit said because political candidates are prohibited from using military installations as campaign backdrops, Obama’s representatives were told, “he could only bring two or three of his Senate staff member, no campaign officials or workers.”
In addition, “Obama could not bring any media. Only military photographers would be permitted to record Obama’s visit.”
The official said “We didn’t know why” the request to visit the wounded troops was withdrawn. “He (Obama) was more than welcome. We were all ready for him.”
