Obama's disconnect from the military

I love this photo.

Released by the Obama campaign no less on his travails through Afghanistan.

Let's start with the basics:

This is not exactly a packed gymnasium of cheering soldiers.

Look at the massive distance between him and the soldiers. (Was Obama afraid he would get military cooties if he got too close?)

The "crowd" is barely three people deep. (My guess is there were more media darlings than soldiers)

What is up with that "Oh God, what am I doing here look on his face"?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. This picture shows the massive expanse of space between America's military and Barack Obama. Clearly there is a huge disconnect here.

Thanks to the Obama campaign for releasing this photo. Priceless!

My guess is the Obama camp will be smarter about releasing these types of photos in the future.
