(name deleted) is the father of six and currently serving in Afghanistan. This is his (ON SCENE) take of Senator Obama's visit to "the troops". Kind of a different take than what you will see on the "news". Make of it what you will. ~Hello everyone, As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to "The War Zone!!". I wanted to share with you what happened: He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle, got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at Bagram. As the Soldiers were lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn't say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their service. So really he was just here to make a showing for the American's back home that he is their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they are providing for you. I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders than from one of our Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States.? I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-in-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country. If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What you see in the news is all fake.

You may want to go to, and ask if this was all the time he spent with the troops. Just to be sure. Because he may have been in a hurry because (for example) (1) he fell two hours behind schedule, shaking hands with troops in some other location, and (2) the General was waiting all that time. So maybe he had no choice. Because Barack does spend plenty of time speaking with troops who are home and go to see him. Plus common sense says that there is no better photo shoot for him as he faces McCain. Plus -- he really does care, and want everyone to be successful and safe.

You can say a lot of things about Obama about age or experience or that he wants to spend the tax money in a way you don't like -- but you can't say that he doesn't care, or that he's a fake.
