President Obama was in Afghanistan yesterday and announced a plan to drawn down the U.S. armed forces over the next couple of years.

There is also a lot of chatter that the trip, which coincided with the one year anniversary of the death of Osama Bin Laden, was a chance for the Obama White House to “spike the ball.”

It very well may have, but honestly, we should be used to politicians doing this sort of thing. But politicians should beware of how “spiking the ball” can blow up in your face. Just ask George W. Bush about the infamous “Mission Accomplished” incident.

Is it unsavory for politicians to do this, or is this just part of the game?
