“Barack Obama will not be coming to us,” a spokesperson for the US military hospital in Landstuhl announced. “I don’t know why.” Well, Barack Obama clearly has his priorities in the right place during his time in Germany. A planned visit with wounded U.S. troops at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center was abruptly canceled today, but “citizen of the world” Obama still managed to squeeze in a workout at (where else?) the Ritz Carlton in Berlin. The campaign’s pathetic excuse for the change? Obama adviser Robert Gibbs tried to spin the situation faster than Barack Obama on his elliptical machine, claiming it “would be inappropriate to make a stop to visit troops at a U.S. military facility as part of a trip funded by the campaign.” Wow, how ethical of him.
