On the day after his terror speech and three days before Memorial Day, Obama flexes muscle while simultaneously dinging BushCo. by promising no cadet will see another war lacking a plan or without adequate fighting equipment.
Basking in the commencement glow (pic) not only bolsters Obama’s C.I.C. cred (pic), the President piggybacks onto a major McCain/Navy family event by sharing a prominent hug with the graduating John Jr. as well as co-owning a salute to and with McCain.
Tacking right, Obama couldn’t get better pictures.
