    When John McCain, a distinguished war veteran and ranking member of the Armed Services Committee made a visit to iraq, a few garden variety reporters tagged along. For Obama's PR tour, three network anchors, plus a large media entourage are frantically trying to get seats. (From CBS TV news). All this, for a completely meaningless media event wherein the ghetto organizer, who would be the first president since franklin roosevelt never to serve in the military, is supposed get instant foreign policy cred from a whirlwind tour.

    Obama sticks to his 18 month "magic number" for his planned cut-and-run. In the same news show, in an interview with a network reporterette, General Petraeus said in very diplomatic language that that notion is ridiculous.

    Is the mainstream (lib) media biased? :)

    Naaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh. :eek:
