    First Teatroll from the tinfoil hat brigade to post some whackjob comment about this being all about publicity, campaigning and getting re-elected wins a cookie.

    no cameras or press allowed. Good so the Obama-haters can't claim that he did it for a "photo op".

    The "libtards" (as used by the republican shills to denigrate) voted for more veterans rights and benefits -- McCain and several republi-taliban voted against. Go figure.
