mediaite.com ^ | 5/28/14 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 05/28/2014 1:31:41 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Obama’s “philosophical” speech to the 2014 graduates of West Point about a new direction for America’s foreign policy was “not a great” speech for that audience, said CNN anchor Jim Clancy on Wednesday. He said that the president did not sound like a “commander-in-chief speaking to his troops” and got an “icy reception” as a result...

I do find it interesting that Obama chose this occasion to make a political speech.

The West Point graduation ceremony is for the graduates (and their families): future officers of the US Army, who have committed to serve their country.

Only a narcissist would use such an occasion to promote his own agenda.

Lets hope these brave young soldiers are sent on worthwhile missions and not those that satisfy Obama’s tantrums and ego trips.

On the bright side, Jim Clancy will be a free agent tomorrow, can join another network. He’ll be done with being tied down with that job and locked into some health insurance he probably did not like.

Exactly right. Unless Obama is in front of an adoring rent-a-crowd he sounds like a dolt. This is why Obama never strays from friendly crowds or the teleprompter. So conveniently, every time you see the guy it he sounds amazing and looks great with people swooning. The reality is, like most of Obama himself, it's all an illusion.

That is just one more explanation to answer the question many have about why the military is accommodating a Dictatorial tyrant. Any hope we have of the military taking the side of the People when the MarxoFascists take their revolution to the next phase, is in vain.

As it is, Obama’s civilian security force is now almost as powerful, as well equipped and as well funded as the military.

I don't believe that for a second. They may have guns and ammo, but they have no heart or soul for the battle. They will fold like a cheap suit when faced by someone armed and not willing to bend over and take it.

Yes, he talked about “climate change” In the global context and how it affects “American exceptionalism” to have certain members of Congress (i.e. Republicans) denying it.

Here’s a plan: let’s get the CINC to West Point to address a class of warriors who have trained to be leaders of fighting troops for four long hard years, and the keynote will be: I’ll keep you guys out of harm’s way. Yeah, that will go over well. Typical Administration tone-deaf, bumbling ineptitude.

His speech to the WP grads was more of a lecture. It was so boring that even FoxNews broke away to Rove commentary and commercials.

It was words on paper and he presented it as such. Very little enthusiasm for what he was reading — meaning, he didn’t even believe much of what he was reading.

I understand, it is easy to march through streets with weapons or assault people trying to board an airplane. But I have faith in our Military. They are patriots and heroes. And there are many more Patriots, like those who rose to defend property rights at the Bundy ranch.

I don't know the real numbers, but I've read 30% supported the American Revolution - the rest supported Britian or didn't care. We don't need a majority to reclaim the country.

Agree. We just need the will to do what is necessary to resist and defeat tyrants and their agents.

I have yet to see that willpower. Most seem to think and limit the recourse to voting in a rigged system. I contend most have a fatal case of Normalcy Bias.
