Obama the Flawless

I'm sitting here watching WTTW-TV's Chicago Week in Review, and the guest reporters all agree that Barack Obama's Middle East and European tour went off without a flaw. None of the guests, at least while I was tuned in, mentioned Obama's cancellation of a visit to wounded GIs in Germany as in any way problematic. I guess that wasn't a flaw.

Obama's campaign staff blames "the Pentagon" for cancellation of the scheduled visit; the Pentagon denies it. The Pentagon said that Obama could visit, but couldn't bring his campaign entourage and the media with him. And so, the wounded GIs were spared being pestered.

Well, there you have it: Obama's tour was flawless.
