The truth and the Obama wounded troops visit {Copy-edited and annotated}

{You’ll have to forgive the fellow his confusion, I think; after all, as Jake Tapper notes the Obama campaign is insisting that this speech has nothing to do with fund-raising / campaigning even when they’re email blasting copies of it with big red CONTRIBUTE icons attached. Ah, the naivete of youth.}

{Anyway: on with the corrections for grammar and spelling! – Moe Lane}

Let’s talk {some} truth{, here}! The reason {why} Obama didn’t visit the wounded troops is because {of} the Department of Defense doesn’t allow political campaigns on bases. According to the DoD {-} which is supposed to be neutral {-} {they? – hard to tell} advised Obama that his visit would be considered political.

I find {the actions of} {this past week from{} both the State Department and {the} Department of Defense {this past week to be} a little worrying. McCain visits the world and the Department of {S}tate doesn’t advise{s} every embassy for their people not to attend {his}speeches. {But when} Obama goes overseas{, and first} the State Department gets involved{. Now, then} the Department of Defense{ is involved}. I can imagine McCain organizing the reactions from both the Department of Defense and {the} Department of State. {Hey, I don’t edit for sense.} Meanwhile{,} the {D}rudge{ R}eport says {that} politics has hit the wall…{ }forgetting the fact that McCain {has also} visited the wall. McCain criticized Obama for making a speech in another country while McCain made a speech in Canada. This entire week{,} McCain has attacked Obama {-} and Obama has {reframed refrained} from attacking him.

Fox {N}ews is putting out old video to make McCain look younger{!!!!!}

{}

Karl Rove doesn’t want to talk about the fact that McCain doesn’t know when the {Anbar A}wakening happened{!!!!!}

This is all so crazy. I am a new Democrat and I’m not afraid of telling conservative propaganda mouthpieces that {their they’re} lying!
