Someone tell me.
I have been following Barack Obama's trip to the Middle East and all I hear mentioned is that he "visited the troops" or "met with the troops." I have seen pictures of Barack in a helicopter and strolling with "world leaders" towards a microphone, but I have yet to hear any news about the reaction of the American troops he visited or see any pictures of him meeting with them.
I would have thought he would have gone for the photo op, surrounded by smiling American service men and women with the implication these are all absentee ballots cast for him come November. And quotes such as, "It was such a privilege to meet him!"
But nothing. Am I missing something?
