Obama Calls Troops a “Pretty Good Photo-Op”

Washington Post:

Obama arrived on [Osan Air Base, South Korea] 3:19 p.m. local time (1 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) and received a rousing welcome from 1,500 troops in camouflage uniforms, many holding cameras or pointing cellphones to snap pictures.

“You guys make a pretty good photo op,” the president said.

Crass? Yep.

But it’s probably also accurate… Obama seems to think of everything in terms of how it can make him look good, and thus troops are best used for photo ops. He certainly doesn’t seem to think they’re worth using to stop the Islamoterrorists in Afghanistan.
