Obama at West Point: speech panned by media; 25% standing ovation

A sitting president’s visit to West Point’s graduation traditionally is greeted with a raucous standing ovation from the cadets. This year was an exception. More than 3 of every 4 cadets sat it out — for their Commander In Chief. The implications should trouble everyone. And we still have another 2 years 7 months of his presidency. God help us.

Not a surprise. They just heard that after several hard years of working their rears off, there most likely won’t be much of a need for them. Hardly standing ovation worthy.
When he gave the graduation speech at the Air Force academy, he didn’t stay until the end and held up the traditional fly over of the Thunderbirds because he wanted to leave early, stopping traffic and the graduation ending 2 hours.
Not exactly building friendships where ever he goes.

“A sitting president’s visit to West Point’s graduation traditionally is greeted with a raucous standing ovation from the cadets. This year was an EXCEPTION.” Perhaps THIS is an example of the “exceptionalism” Nobama keeps referring to.

“I’m exceptionally stupid and everyone knows it!”

Respect is earned. Leaders lead from the front. Not the rear.

If I had been one of those cadets, I would have come down with the ooga-booga fever the night before, and spent the day in the infirmary.

It’s beyond me why West Point would have invited him to speak in the first place. I think it’s an insult to West Point and the graduating cadets to have had him there. My niece is a math professor at West Point and I look forward to asking her about everyone’s response to his visit and speech.
