COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) President Barack Obama is telling graduates of the U.S. Air Force Academy that they are the first class in nearly a decade to graduate into a world that has no Osama bin Laden, no war in Iraq and no questions about when the war in Afghanistan will end.
The president declared that there is a "new feeling about America." He said the work of ending one war and setting the path to end the Afghan war has set a foundation for what he called "a new era of American leadership."
Obama's commencement speech carried clear themes of his re-election bid.
He asserted that America is exceptional and more respected now. And he reiterated his economic vision of cutting the debt but putting more money into education, science, manufacturing and innovation.
President Barack Obama is delivering his final commencement speech of the season, addressing graduates of the U.S. Air Force Academy before pivoting to political fundraising out West.
Following his speech, the president was headed to fundraisers in Denver...

Obama:`A new feeling about America’
Yeah. And you get this ‘feeling’ from TSA trying to board a plane and as well as other sundry perversions you’re permitting and condoning, ObaMao.
He is insane.
Other than destroying the economy, the other ‘new feeling’ I have about the Obama Administration is that there is open season on white people by the feral segment of the black population.
...and no jobs.
that it doesn't mean sh** that Osama is dead...in fact...it's causing big problems....
Did he remind them that he repealed don't ask..don't tell.
I'm sure the boys are restrained and disgusted with Obama as we all are.
Yes, there is a new feeling about America, at home and abroad. it is not a good feeling.
The USAF academy had HIM speak at their commencement? Oh gag me with a very large spoon! Of all the bright, intelligent and patriotic people that could have been chosen they have to choose him????
I feel bad for the poor Zoomies who had to sit through this crap and then go up there and get their diplomas and commissions from him. Blech.
Yeah, his communists empire and King Obama as dictator.
Just like he did that other school...
The great ‘exalted leader’ Omaba pimps himself to the Air Force Academy graduates with another all about how the whole world loves ME speech & tells them what a highly respected leader he is - as he runs around campaigning on the tax payer dime.
Obama did a lot to give our troops, aircrew & sailors a bad ending in Iraq and Afghanistan. He telegraphed that we were bugging out early to AQ & the Taliban, plus he made it obvious to those in those countries who were favorable to the US, we would abandon them. Expect a picture on your TV of a helicopter on the roof of the US Embassy in Kabul evacuating the staff.
It doesn’t work that way at my Alma Mater... He’s the CinC. He speaks at the Service Academy commencements of his choice.
“Yes members of USAFA Class of 2012, go forth and serve ME!!!”
-—He is insane.——
Zero is Nero.
A new feeling like dropping the soap in a south Texas prison.
"Loosening export controls (Obama moves oversight of selling missile technology to Commerce Dept.)"
"The president issued a little-noticed "presidential determination" Sept. 29 that delegated authority for determining whether missile and space exports should be approved for China to Commerce Secretary Gary Locke."
"'We like your president. We want to see him reelected', former Chinese intelligence chief General Ji Shengde told Chinagate bagman Johnny Chung.' "
I would say that there was not much choice on the academy’s part plus mac daddy had a captive audience who also had no choice but to be there and hear one lie after another.
America now sucks and we all feel it.
....no jobs, something like $200,000 of debt for each future taxpayer born into the country, potential health care that will bankrupt millions of Americans and/or allow them to die when all health care is provided by the government, housing market that will be screwed up for another generation, etc., etc.
Yes, I suspect he told the AF Academy that he was going to be the speaker. He saw it as a great photo/campaign op to try to convince us all that he’s a great peacetime CIC.
Yeah... the Arab Spring Islamists, the Iranians, Russians and Chinese respect this country FAR more than ever. Right.
Yes members of USAFA Class of 2012, go forth and serve ME!!!
I would like to see him served Bugs Bunny style with carrots in a boiling cauldron.
The article mentions that he will pivot off to fundraisers in the area.
Main reason for the trip.
AF Academy got used.
I've got a new feeling about America ... and you right wing nuts are
a lot better off not knowing what it is!
That's probably just gas.
I was stationed at Fort Carson, CO. during the regime of Jimmy Carter, when I bailed out of the Army (which was a mistake) cuz’ I couldn’t stand the Commander in Chief. Little did I know a great president named Ronald Reagan would take his place. How I wished I would have served under him!
Serving under Clinton would have been loathsome as he and Hitlery hated the military.
Now we are facing Jimmy Carter’s second term. No better than the first.
Thanks for the ping and for remembering the DSL!
WH (esp Obama) LOVES and LOVED to use this kind of occasions for photo opts. Libs never pass up a golden opportunity such as this, to show CinC in action.
Where are the released photos to accompany this?
You’re very welcome and God Bless.
