Too Little, Too Late

In more following the meme that the Bushies are against our troops, six weeks after the horrendous conditions at the Walter Reed military hospital were splashed across headlines, El Presidente FINALLY decided to give the place a little visit.

Unfortunately, some people see it for exactly what it is, a photo op to make it look like he cares. Here are my favorite comments of this entire story, ever:

Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, among retired military officers who took part
in a conference call about Bush’s visit, praised the president for seeing
wounded soldiers. But, he added: “I’m convinced he would honor them more if he
would refrain from using soldiers as props in political theater.”
“I would be
very happy to see him do the Walter Reed visit more like the commander and
secondarily as an inspector general, rather than as a politician,” he
said.
