Obama Tells Afghan Troops During Lunch– "This Is My Favorite Thing To Do"


Barack Obama dined with the troops at Camp Eggers in Afghanistan today. DVIDS has video of the gathering. During the lunch Obama told the few troops gathered in the mess hall:

“This is my favorite thing to do.”

That’s probably why this is his first trip to Afghanistan… Ever.
It’s also the likely reason why he dines with the troops so often… If ever.
Well, he did go to Iraq once back in 2006 anyway and called for troop withdrawals.

The O-Show continued through Afghanistan today…

Oh… And it appears his Arabic speaking translators for this trip were left back in Iraq.

Obama later met with brave Afghan President Hamid Karzai- a man he’s ridiculed for not doing enough for his war-torn country.

You just have to love the arrogance of the antiwar liberals in Washington DC who lash out at courageous men like Hamid Karzai who put their lives on the line daily.
