In case you missed it, here’s the video of the president’s speech from Afghanistan last night.
The real reason President Obama went to Afghanistan? Just to piss off the wingnuts.
Longtime Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma criticized President Barack Obama over the president’s surprise trip to Afghanistan Tuesday, describing the visit as “campaign related” and an “attempt to shore up his national security credentials.”
“We’ve seen recently that President Obama has visited college campuses in an attempt to win back the support of that age group since he has lost it over the last three years,” Inhofe said in a statement. “Similarly, this trip to Afghanistan is an attempt to shore up his national security credentials, because he has spent the past three years gutting our military.”
Committing our soldiers and resources to another twelve years of aid and risk was just the icing on the cake if he could get Sen. Inhofe to blow a gasket.
