Those are great pics indeed! I also so them over on Marie's blog.

Some people seem surprised that Bush chose to do that but I don't understand why.

look at that first pic and tell me if you could ever picture our troops showing that kind of enthusiasm trying to get in a pic with Hilldabeast, Obamanation, or the Brek girl

The troops look truly relaxed and happy to meet with our President, unlike visits from other legislators where the soldiers are formal and distant. Some have descreetly given the "coercion" signal when meeting with a certain politcal party's leadership...
