I heard that the Pentagon asked him not to visit the soldiers since it was a political trip.

It was the TV however and it's been known to lie.

You loons need to have a meeting to discuss your talking points. We now have two dueling topics, one criticizing Obama for using taxpayer money and another for not using taxpayer money.

Because we won the war.

What exactly did we win? Did we finally find all the those WMDs?

The stupidest current pro-war claim is just that we "won the war." We won the war pretty quickly when we flatted Saddam's army and threw him out of power. We then found out that our justifications for the war were utterly false. For the last six years we have not been at war. We have been occupying a sovereign nation. You can't get an honorable victory out of that.

He's got no problem using $9 million extra in tax dollars to have a larger venue for his coronation. Why not spend a few tens of thousands on jet fuel between Berlin and Kaiserslautern?

I'm pretty sure he's referring to World War Two. ;)

It's an old joke. There was a Lufthansa pilot communicating with his tower at a German Airport. All international air traffic is supposed to be in English.

The Lufthansa pilot begins to speak in German, and is told by the tower to speak English. The pilot replies "I am a German Pilot, in a German Plane, flying for a German Airline, asking for landing instructions from a German airport on German territory. Why, then, should I have to speak English?"

A British Air pilot breaks into the conversation and says "Because we won the bloody war. That's why."

LMAO

There will no longer be political discussions on DC, because every conservative argument against any Obama support is basically, "If you love Obama so much why don't you marry him?"

Speaking of which, remind me to thank Obama for apologizing to GERMANY on behalf of AMERICA for occasionally letting them down.

the world has largely forgiven germany for its much greater sins 60 years ago, it seems ironic that they would be unwilling to forgive us for our perceived sins in the last 5 years.
