Obama Aides Dismiss Reports of Upcoming Trip to Iraq

By Philip Rucker
KAILUA, Hawaii -- President-elect Barack Obama's aides on Friday dismissed reports that Obama may visit Iraq in coming weeks.

Reports from Baghdad that Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki canceled an official trip to Iran stoked speculation among Iraqi officials that al-Maliki changed his plans for a possible visit by Obama.

But Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt said the president-elect, who is vacationing in Hawaii through Jan. 1, has no plans to visit Iraq before his Jan. 20 inauguration.

So, just incase WAPO and this pair of total losers dcgrasso and telos have seemed
to forget that everyone has the same right
to Freedom of Speech,Freedom of Press and
Freedom of Expression,as stated in our own
US Constitution as well as numberous US Supreme Court Decisions that upheld those
rights and freedoms so go ahead and attack
others for their exercising those rights or
pull the "Iam Reporting blah blah for Abuse
BS" as all your doing is acting like a damn
fool or bunch of cyberbully Obama thugs and
your just as bad as the Nazis or Communists
or Al_Qeada Terrorists yourself pal.

It's time for both WAPO and Delusional Obama Worshippers and Dimwit Democrats stop
and realize that with our own country the
USA actively engaged in fighting two damn
deadly,very cost and bloody wars,in Iraq
and Afghanistan,with Osama bin Laden and
Al_Qeada still launching deadly terrorist
attacks around the world and our own US
economy being virtually destroyed by it and
by a combination of this and poor damn
misleadership by both the Republicans and
the Do Nothing Democrat Congress,therefore
we damn well donot need a strutting around,
looking and acting like a cheap Chicago
pimp,pathological liar,cocaine addict punk
gutless wonder like Barack Hussein Obama
as President or yet another Damn Draft Dodger Vice President Joe The Mouth Biden
in the White House at this time either.

And none of these rabid delusional Democrat
Peaceniks,Liberal Losers can face or accept
this reality as well. They only know how to
whine and attack others that want Obama and
Biden rmoved from office before the two of
them finish destroying the USA and our brave U S Military. Nope Barack Obama is too big a Coward to go see up front the
war in Iraq and Afghanistan as always with
Barack Hussein Obama his luxury vacations
and acting like a fool or teenage idiot
come first.

"I fear for our Troops with Obama and
Biden in the White House. God Save the USA!

Posted by: sherrykay2008 | December 27, 2008 12:08 AM"

And I fear for the USA, with people like sherrykay2008, darlene80, Jan1977, Kim12785, Marilyn80, Donna78, and sandy5274 (all almost certainly the same person) chasing decent human beings away who want to have a serious discussion, with their slime and decay and rot. I'm a strong believer in First Amendment rights, but there is a way to express disagreement without this oozing hatred. Let's all hope that children are never exposed to this hating and hateful person.

I have reported every one of these messages as abuse.

The nuts are out today. Or is it just one nut. Sherri, Jan, Kim, and Darlene seem to be writing with the same hand. What's it like to have all those voices in your head?

This is the most total biggest laugh that I
have had yet reading WAPO as I agree that
Barack Hussein Obama looks and acts much
more like a two bit Chicago pimp then a
President Elect and Next Commander in Chief
and you damn right WAPO can the Fluff Crap
about Barack Hussein Obama or keep on with
a lot more readers stopping reading WAPO
on line and in print as well. Bet find out
why the Chicago Tribune is going under...

Nope Barack Obama sure doesnot have guts
enough to go to Iraq and Afghanistan like
Ike did as President Elect and Commander in
Chief of our Military, however all Obama
does is run his big mouth,go on vacations,
play golf and basketball and workout at
the gym and get paid for doing nothing like
all Do Nothing Democrats from Nancy Pelosi
and Harry Reid to the whole damn dimwit Do
Nothing Congress. How Pathetic!

Oh God how funny as a yellow coward phony
like Barack Hussein Obama doesn't have the
guts to go to Iraq and Afghanistan and see
first hand what it is like where the actual
fighting is going on. I bet Obama wets his
pants at even the suggestion he do so. God
is Obama the most pathetic President Elect
and Worst Possible Choice for a Commander
in Chief of our US Military in history and
that damn big mouth Joe Biden is just one
more Draft Dodger like Cheney freeloading
off the US taxpayers. Impeach Both of Them.

Oh come on WAPO Spin Machine tell the real
truth here,and which is Messiah Barack Hussein Obama the fraud is too big a damn
coward to go to Iraq and get anywhere near
a combat area and that Obama has treat our
US Military with total contempt,complete
disrespect and must hate it as well,since
day one,and if Barack Hussein Obama loved
the USA like Obama claims Obama would have
joined the Military himself...However here
too Obama would never be accepted by it as
the US Military does not take admitted
Cocaine Addicts in it. So Spin That Away
Fearless Fred Hiatt and WAPO! Impeach Obama
and Biden and Nancy Pelosi too in 2009!

Ha ha! You guys are wacky. Keep gnashing your teeth, I love it.

And,even President Elect Eisenhower went to
the DMZ in Korea and all over Korea to keep
his promise as President Elect and Commander in Chief of our Military to go to
Korea and see for himself the situation there,but Coward in Chief and President
Elect Barack Hussein Obama must have made
a promise to hateful Michelle Obama that
Obama will never to Iraq or Afghanistan or
anywhere near where shots are being fired
at our troops. Some Gutless Wonder the New
President Elect & Commander In Chief and
Meessiah Fraud Barack Hussein Obama is sure
turning out to be here. I agree Impeach Obama and Biden and Pelosi on Jan 21 2009,
as I fear for our Troops with Obama and
Biden in the White House. God Save the USA!

Posted by: sherrykay2008 | December 27, 2008 12:08 AM

Oh come on we know by now that the new Liar
in Chief #2 more correctly called since that yellow coward President Elect Fraud
& Fake Messiah Barack Hussein Obama is too
big a yellow coward and peacenik to be even
called Commander in Chief of our US Miltary
is not going to go to Iraq since they shoot
real bullets that kill and maim people in
Iraq not somekind ot stupid video game BS!.. And as a Military Friend of mine,who
was Iraq when Messiah Barack Hussein Obama
was there and in Afghanistan riding around
in heavily armored vechiles directly from
his idiotic Big O Luxury Jet to see only the Generals and few cherry picked troops
that he ate with under heavy guard no less,
that had so much more security then poor old Sen John McCain did,says Barack Obama
proved he is the biggest cowsrd to ever run
for President and Unfit to be Commander in
Chief of our troops..And he was there as
a member of a US General Security and saw
it all in person as well. So still think
Yellow Coward In Chief Obama will ever go
anywhere close to the frontlines and where
the real fighting is going on yet now? When
Pigs Fly! Impeach Obama & Biden on 1/21/09!

I see there's still enough hate out there to keep the name calling alive. I'm glad Obama has more class than most Democrats/Republican posters or his support would be as high as Bush's.

Posted by: MarxBro | December 26, 2008 9:41 PM

Although his own policies may differ for sure, to date Mr Obama's designees are unfriendly to the Muslim World but, being mostly peaceniks, eschew violence. Still, he's wise to stay away before the Inauguration to avoid a repeat of the shoe incident. I understand Iraq (as well as other Muslim countries) is being flooded with identical shoes from the same Turkish manufacturer, the demand being phenomenal.

Democruds - ha. I thought Obama celebrated Kwanzaa??

Posted by: weeklyworldnews | December 26, 2008 7:43 PM

I hope, in the long run, that we can gain forgiveness from the rest of the world for the pain, suffering, and destruction wrought by the USA under Puddin'head Bush these last 8 years...

I know my personal embarrassment and shame are lifting as Inauguration Day approaches.

If this meets your definition of a "really really bad day," you must have it pretty sweet.

Posted by: spidergoose | December 26, 2008 4:02 PM

Another really -really bad day for the DEMOCRUDS.
