Clarification on Obama's Canceled Visit to Landstuhl

It turns out the Pentagon ruled against an Obama visit to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, calling it "inappropriate." Obama was following the Department of Defense's rules and so he canceled.

This doesn't keep John McCain from cravenly insinuating that Obama is anti-troops, an aide saying, "It is never 'inappropriate' to visit our men and women in the military." I suppose there are times when even John McCain would actually think it's "inappropriate" to visit men and women in the military. Like if they're in the shower, or actually engaged in combat at the frontlines, or asleep in the middle of the night... OR IF THERE'S A RULE AGAINST VISITING THEM, Stupid.

The rightwing squawk squad wants to have it both ways, of course. If Obama doesn't visit them he did something wrong. If Obama does visit them he did something wrong. I believe most rational people can see through their BS.

McCain = Bush.
