Maybe it's just circumstances that this article has me wondering what in the world is going on with our President.

He's skipping the wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National cemetery, but uses terms at a fundraiser likening himself to a soldier in a foxhole?

Then later on dines with one of the heirs of the Getty oil empire, while the Gulf coast frustrations are at a boiling point?

President Barack Obama flew across the country Tuesday to help an old colleague he'd once bonded with in a "foxhole."

"On every fight that needed to be fought, Barbara [Boxer] was there, standing right there next to me, and sometimes we were in a foxhole together and shots were being fired," Obama said at an evening fundraising reception in San Francisco.

"That's just a figure of speech," he added. "I don't want the Secret Service getting excited."
