It's 16:02pm and I’ve been training in the gym of the Ritz
Carlton hotel in Berlin. A man in a suit approaches me and says:
"Barack Obama is about to come and train ...“ Shortly after half past four and he actually arrives! Barack Obama is wearing a grey t-shirt, black tracksuit bottoms – and a great smile!
Obama (with toned arms and a strong back) puts on his headphones for his iPod to listen to pop music. He hums quietly. Then he jumps on a fitness bike. He pushes three times on the pedals – but then can’t be bothered with it.

The thing that you must remember, is that Barack Obama was intended to visit our troops all the way until Wednesday night. So the man had the time to visit our troops. But what stopped him? When his campaign found out that it could not bring a photographer and turn this visit by a politician into a campaign event.
Here is the Official Barack Obama Excuse.
Retired Air Force Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, an Obama adviser, said in a statement. "We learned from the Pentagon [Wednesday] night that the visit would be viewed instead as a campaign event. Senator Obama did not want to have a trip to see our wounded warriors perceived as a campaign event . . . and decided instead not to go." Do you believe this crap?
Do you think this perfect picture was staged? Lighting perfect, head tilted perfect, angle and back ground perfect.
Sen. Obama paid an early morning visit Thursday to Jerusalem's Western Wall. Sen. Obama wore a white yarmulke, or Jewish skullcap, and was escorted to the site by the site's chief rabbi, Shmuel Rabinovich. The Rabbi read Psalm 122 while Sen. Obama stood contemplatively before the wall. ( While a photographer snapped 100 pictures) The presidential candidate then placed a note of his wishes in the wall, a customary practice for Jewish worshippers.
Can you imagine what the pictures would have looked like with Obama and our wounded troops. The whole trip was one big photo op. Obama you can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. Your house of cards will fall.
