Obama has benefited from a week of good images. But substantively, optimism without reality isn’t eloquence. It’s just Disney.Maybe not all the good images he wanted, however (hat tip to Hot Air):
But maybe adding two and two will give us the answer.
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 In addition,The official said "We didn't know why" the request to visit the wounded troops was withdrawn.
"Obama could not bring any media. Only military photographers would be permitted to record Obama's visit."
