At what point will the current President show up and spend time there?
It is funny on how people in the past argued that history would look back in kindest on President Bush and the author of this blog is now a fan:
We are now officially committed fans of George W. and Laura Bush. We are fans of Dick Cheney. Our gratitude for them makes us newly protective of them, and the continued role they play in this country.
At no time did President Bush or his wife make a grand speech with teleprompters and the press, or make a special trip to Dover complete with the press to watch bodies being back from war. The president just went, as this blog reports
A couple of days ago I heard the news that George and Laura Bush paid a private visit to the wounded soldiers at Fort Hood. They specifically requested that the base commander not inform the media of their visit. They came. They comforted the wounded soldiers and the Fort Hood community for a couple of hours. And then they left. And they never had their pictures taken saluting the troops or holding their hands.
Dear President Obama, please respect our trips, please visit them outside of the press corps. Please figure out what to do with the troops in Afghanistan.
