I'm sure Bush made no political gains out of today, right Diamond?

You can't condemn one politician for using a photo op for political advantage while saying it's acceptable for another.

What difference does their political title make to whether they gain political advantage from a photo op with US troops?

One is the Commander of the Armed Forces of the United States; The other is not. One is in the direct chain of command; The other is not.

It is totally acceptable for the President as a moral boost to the troops to do what he did today! If I were still in the army today I would be proud to be serving under this man based on his actions today.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why is it everything he does is considered a photo op. The speech was excellent and a wonderful meassage to the troops. I just listened to it. Why in the world can't he be given a shred of credit for something good for once?

I think it was very honorable for him to be there. He didn't have to risk his life on Thanksgiving to fly to Iraq and visit troops, but he did. This shows the character of this president. Good for him.

And I'm sure all the liberals will be upset by the visit but when history looks back, what will be remembered, the complaining liberals or President Bush visiting the troops on Thanksgiving Day in Iraq?

Quite frankly I don't mind that either one of them were there. Of course it's a photo-op. Of course Bush is Commander-in-Chief. Of course Hillary is a former first lady and current U.S. Senator. I don't see any of it as an earth-shaking event. If bin Laden had been busted or something it would have been more important.

Good for him. But he shouldn't get any praise for this move. This is the very least he should do. Especially given the way this administration has abused these troops.

Of course Hillary is a former first lady

When did former 1st ladies start visiting troops abroad during war-time?

It was great to see the reaction of the troops when Bremer asked if there was anyone more senior in the room to give the Thanksgiving Day address, and suddenly Bush walked on stage. I hope liberals were watching and are aware of the strong support this President has among the men and women of the military.

Deep,

"this is typical of him to play dress up soldier in a safe enviroment."

So you admit that Iraq is becoming safer do to the efforts of lead by this administration?
