That's the way a Commander and Chief, I mean Prospective Commander in Chief should act?

Der Spiegel reported:

++ Visit to US Military Bases Cancelled ++
1:42 p.m.: SPIEGEL ONLINE has learned that Obama has cancelled a planned short visit to the Rammstein and Landstuhl US military bases in the southwest German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The visits were planned for Friday. "Barack Obama will not be coming to us," a spokesperson for the US military hospital in Landstuhl announced. "I don't know why." Shortly before the same spokeswoman had announced a planned visit by Obama.

But somehow had time to workout:

++ Obama Takes Time to Work Out ++
4:49 p.m.: Obama enters the luxury Ritz Carlton hotel wearing a T-shirt, black sweatpants and white trainers -- apparantly to work out in the hotel's gym. He kept up the campaigning on the way there, smiling and waving at tourists and other onlookers.

I realize that I'm just a hick, but if you want to be the Commander-in-Chief (even referring to yourself as the Commander-in-Chief) and you are near a military hospital outside the US why wouldn't you make sure you had time to visit?

He's merely making his opinion of our military even clearer. I can't believe that there are Americans who really believe this clown would be good for our country.
