....Obama is coming to West Point Wednesday to give the graduation address....
...excitement over West Point graduation tends to focus more on the cadets than on the speaker...

The dufus reads the teleprompter. Yawn.
If I were a cadet I’d go AWOL from my own graduation...
It doesn’t seem like they are really excited about the President but really the parents who they finally get to meet. One of the companies are not happy of the event at all due to the Army having similar items sold on base and hurting his business and then their is the traffic which nobody would be happy about.
They are just excited that the majority of their mandatory service won’t be under him.
Gentlemanly protocol is reserved for signing the surrender treaty, not for a mid battle chance encounter.
Turn your backs, gentlemen.

So long as the drug-addled communist is acting as Community-Organizer-in-Chief, the cadets are obligated to show respect to the Commandant and the Superintendent during this visit from America’s most dangerous enemy. They should not turn their backs on the petty dictator. They also should not applaud unless ordered to do so, and if ordered they should follow orders in the most tepid, disinterested manner possible without embarrassing their uniformed leadership.
The military respects the voting public for whom they are employed If we foist this guy on him they have to respect that
It’s up to us.
Agreed. They should treat him with contempt.
Come on Army Boo the Bastard. . . . .
Again, allowing this guy into the presidency or voting him in and then expecting the military to do something about it is silly
The military works for us.
They do not protect our every freedom like a bunch of mercenaries
We are supposed to take care of our military and not, by allowing military abusers into office
He is a reflection of us.
A commander in chief that couldn’t care less about the military ... unless it’s a photo op situation.
I don't think that's really an option. I'm glad my cadet isn't graduating this year.
Graduations are about the students. I can’t remember any graduation speakers from any event that I attended with the exception of Gore when he spoke at West Point a few years ago. And the only reason I remember him was for the negative remarks that spread through the stands.
Graduation speakers represent a perfunctory institution that you just have to suffer through. Maybe there are some good ones but I’ve never experienced that. Just a lot of totally forgettable ones.
I would go. It's about time the Army developed combat teleprompters. Affirmative Action Officers need them to issue commands to their troops.
To watch my CiC swivel his sleek head from one teleprompter to another as he delivers platitude after platitude after non-sequitur is an awe-inspiring sight to see and wonderful to hear.
Somehow, it brings me back to my glory days in combat, during which a frequently heard phrase was,
“If I were a cadet Id go AWOL from my own graduation...”
Like all the photos of odumbo with our military people (look at their faces), the cadets will be FORCED to attend even if they are not in the graduating class.
This one you can’t miss because they administer the oath of office to all of the graduates to be second lieutenants in the Army.
The parents could and should let Obama know what they think of him.
LOL! Great idea!
You have got to be kidding me. This is the speech a president gives in the first year or two of his presidency -- the Iraq War and Afghanistan ended with Bush for all intents and purposes. Yet here we are, almost to the end of the Obama debacle, and he is "laying out a broad vision of his approach to foreign policy for the remaining two and a half years of his presidency, in the wake of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan." It means he has done nothing useful over the past 6 years.
I’m not going to argue that. You have to admit, though, that his election was not entirely legit. If you set aside fraud, you still have the media conspiracy to lie about his record and ignore anything that would be harmful to him. That being true, “WE” didn’t put him in there. This was nothing short of a coup. The cadets don’t know all that. You’d have to spend a lot of time on FR to know that. For all they know, he’s the legitimate president, constitutionally elected by the people, but in reality, they should shun him as an enemy and a criminal.
When I graduated we had the former president of the school speak, the next year’s class had then president GWB.
I see that point, believe me. And don’t underestimate the kids. They get their news from the source, unfiltered.
But if we cannot keep some incompetent anti American from taking office, we’d better look somewhere else than the military, certainly a group of academy new grads to get our views known.
...the majority of their mandatory service wont be under him.
That remains to be seen. Or maybe it will be under Michelle....
I would love to see the cadets file in silently...and then remain completely silent and emotionless during all of Obama’s interaction with them. That would be dramatic!
The good news for the graduating classes at Annapolis and the Air Force Academy: Obama is going to West Point this year.
The bad news? The midshipmen at the USNA got stuck with Chuck Hagel, while the zoomies at the AFA wound up with Joe Biden.
I’ll go out on a limb and say the speeches will probably be the low point of graduation week at all three schools. Incidentally, the commencement speaker at the Coast Guard Academy was Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, one of Obama’s political lackeys. I’m sure that was an inspirational address.
Kudos to grads from each graduating class at the academies this year. They deserve plaudits for a job well done and embarking on a career of service to our nation. Just a shame that they have to listen to one of those hacks before getting their diploma and commission.
I was an OTS product. Didn’t have to worry about sitting through some politician’s “speech” before we got our gold bars.
IMHO, the entire Corps of Cadets, Superintendent and cadres are in violation of the Honor Code.
The Honor Code was never developed to allow homosexuals into the Corps. That it has been usurped by “modernists” renders it worthless.
And now the islamist enemy comes to call, who, like “Predator” further peruses the skulls of those he would murder.
The excitement: “That a**hole will snarl traffic for the whole day!”
They wouldn’t. Attending graduation is mandatory for cadets. UCMJ applies to them too.
Even the applause will be compelled to a certain extent.
Booing the Benghazi Coward in Chief Obama would feel good at the time, but these are not times of free speech.
Sickening in light of Benghazi.
Obozamma is yammering now...
He said that during WWII the US Govt did not understand the operations, sent military into bad situations without reviewing outcomes...that we did NOT have a joint operation with other nations???? Uh, we were the “ALLIES”...
Doesn’t want to send military all over the place to solve world’s problems. Not our job...unless US interests are threatened...Uh, Obozo, LIBERTY is always in the interest of PEOPLE!!
Filthy disgusting LIAR!!
After embarrassing pause it sounded as if only 2 people clapped to break the silence.
I just saw him sitting there, chin tilted up like a Third World dictator.......oh wait....
Now he is defending his foreign policies. Poor graduates. They expect a congratulatory speech not one making excuses!
What a small man BO is! I am so ashamed of him and those who put him in Office. I forced myself to watch.....I’m gone now!
He just said he is going to arm Syrian “rebels”...AKA, Muzzie Brotherhood. I thought we had AlQaeda on the run??
Then for more transparency,
He will make the Military the spokesman.
So the Military leaders are now co-opted and made a part of the Regieme?
Why not cut out the middle man and just invite Bill Ayers?
I wonder what all the FNC crew do during all the airtime they give zero.
The hard part is getting him NOT to talk.
The guy never shuts up.
Me too. I’m counting on 2015
Obama continues to be such an embarrassment to this country and fails dramatically to see his words are simply wind in the air. I don't think even he can continue to believe himself much longer, in light of the facts but he'll try. And the more he tries the more a fool he appears.
My thinking is that the Soros group will continue in power, but, just to make it look better, they will allow us to think we have actually had an election. My prediction is that they put up someone we have not yet even heard of — another dope groomed by the organization and willing to follow their orders.
Seeing more dark days ahead for our country. So glad I have my faith to sustain me.
