But for us it was Tuesday

The president paid us a visit. President Obama ate at our DFAC and stopped by on his way to Fort Hood.

He spoke to the soldiers who have fought and lost buddies in Iraq. Many are veterans of the “surge”. There were some vile Code Pink wackos protesting the days before he got here. While some on the left cling to fantasies of government that never uses force, it is refreshing to see our commander in chief visit our troops.

As for me, I had to work in the motor pool. I did see Air Force One on the tarmac and saw the president limo drive by.
