Presidents with Troops

The Los Angeles Times publishes photo of Obama with troops, and one with Bush and troops.  Worth a glance.

Gosh, I wonder why you're directing readers to that?? I couldn't begin to guess.

How would one interpret this, and maintain the politically correct conservative narrative?

Are you sure they're AMERICAN troops?

Hm, Barack Obama wears a bomber jacket even though he's never been a pilot (or in the military at all). George Bush lands on an aircraft carrier and jumps out of a plane in a fighter's flight suit, even though his "career" as a fighter pilot was a sham to keep him out of Vietnam.

I'm still wondering when journalists are going to start criticzing Obama for not attending the funerals of soldiers killed in action. Funny how that meme kinda went down the memory hole once a Democrat took the White House.

Anyone who has talked face-to-face with former President Bush can see the sincerity in his eyes, and hear it in his voice, when he expresses his gratitude and admiration for the troops.

"You know what I'm going to miss most about being the president? Being Commander-in-Chief to fine young troops like you."
