President Obama announced today a plan for getting out of Iraq. I'm all for that. But as I've complained before re Bush, it irritates me that the Pres poses in front of a back drop of soldiers, or in Obama's case, Marines.
Please, please, don't use our troops as a visual aid. They're humans, but if ordered to be there will be there. They don't have a choice. I think it's exploitive, and I'm disappointed with team Obama for using the same cheesy photo op as Bush used.
Isn't it good enough to require them to attend a rally, and show the crowd? Do you have to use them as a back drop? I hoped for something better from President Obama.
