Yesterday’s speech to the graduating class of West Point by President Obama may be remembered as the signal that his presidency has entered a crisis of confidence, much as Jimmy Carter’s infamous “malaise” speech has gone down in history as marking a failed presidency.

Even the most naive of fools should have figured out that he was an incurable narcissist at that time.
The media will cover for him.
Obama - - - Proof that affirmative doesn’t work!
Obama - - - Proof that affirmative action doesn’t work!
He’s killing the Democrat Party.
Civil unrest? Oh, please. HE is the civilian the military needs to protect us from.
After that chilly reception the narcissistic POS got at West Point, there's no question about who they'll take their orders from. Clearly, most of the military think hes a POS; they won't take orders to go against civilians.
The POS prez is decidedly stupid---he thinks a bunch of Chicago criminals can outgun the highly-armed and sophisticated American public.
The Chi/criminals better read the Constitution----the military can commandeer the WH, the Oval Office, and its occupants in a nanosecond.
I think it signals he thinks he can say whatever he wants, to whatever audience they put him in front of, and no one can do anything about it. He is a tinpot dictator in his soul, and that will not change, it will only get worse over time.
POTUS Obama is not in deep trouble...he is finished, failed and an instant “Lame Duck”!!! I could cite his failures one by one here....but......he has hurt our country, our people...all of them and our military folks and veterans!!! If the rank & file Democrats had one iota of a brain....they would strut down to the White House and demand that he resign...immediately!!! They are too dumb...and won’t....and, they will go down with him politically!!!
Agreed. In past times, maybe yes; but now? Hardly. The extent of the corruption alleviates any threat to the Rat power.
Do not overlook what the criminal in the White House has been doing to the composition of the military; perverts, weird women, illegal aliens and probably felons. These people owe their lives to the clown and will kill citizens with glee.
It was simply the most childish thing we had seen from them to that date, and yet that episode seems to pale in comparison to so many of the others that have been far worse for their outright narcissism. still makes me laugh...office of the president elect.
“...Obama’s West Point Speech signals a presidency in deep trouble...”
Obama’s “election” to the presidency of the United States signaled a country was about to be in deep trouble.
When he was young he failed to mature beyond the age of 14.
The “Lord of the Flies” rules.
“Obama’s West Point Speech signals a presidency in deep trouble”
Obama’s West Point Speech signals a citizenry in deep trouble”
We do know that 25% of the West Point graduates are potential traitors and yes men, the other 75% are going to be men and women of character. There is still hope for our country.
0bama’s Wuss speech yesterday was pitiful.
For the first time in American history, live, before the future commanders of the greatest military on the face of the Earth, the true empty, void of conviction, void of America, queer-in-charge-of-nothing, was shown to the world.
Now, maybe we can find a way to get this THING out of office?
When was the last time we saw a poll on Barry’s approval/disapproval? Seems like quite awhile. I’ll bet those numbers are downright ugly.
But can they operate together as a team? Can they operate the high tech equipment? It will be a clusterbuck of the kind only the state is capable of.
I just checked and the Galloping idiots have him at 43%
They show Bush at 32% at the same point in his presidency. Of course the media endlessly bashed Bush on Iraq, supposed lack of intelligence, and lying.
Plus, most of us that supported Bush were not blind followers like many of Obama’s lemmings. Most of us had issues with Bushes spending, Harriet Mires, not defending himself against the media and the left, not prosecuting many of the Clinton cronies, and not cleaning the leftist vermin out of the state department. In short, we conservatives are more honest.
Thats usually when homosexuals stop emotional development or when Frank started abusing him.
Ya think? Did you see the faces of the poor schlubs he had standing behind him at Bagram AFB the other day?
“Hes killing the Democrat Party.”
They can still steal any election they want. Even in 2010, their heavyweights won with the exception of Feingold. They just gave up the guppies.
Ayn Rand delivered a speech to West Point cadets in 1974 and gave West Point permission to include her speech in a new Philosophy textbook. That speech is titled “Philosophy, who needs it” ... and it can be found at http://fare.tunes.org/liberty/library/pwni.html
He really has to get busy and develop his own military because this one isnt going to shoot me.
did you forget the /sarc tag?
The RATs agenda is moving forward and accelerating.
Please tell me how that will be reversed?
Please tell me how the 100's of thousands of hard-core leftists that infest the bureaucracy will be thwarted?
Please tell me how (and when) the onerous EPA rules will be reversed?
Tell me how the very likelihood of 100% Amnesty (granted with the help of Boehner & McConnell)to 40million third world criminals will help our Republic maintain it's culture and language?
The left has been relentless and unstoppable -- Obama has little to fear.
One of the comments said it best;
“one man commanded respect, the other DEMANDED respect.”
That says it in a nutshell...
I am astounded that you would type such. Can you see reality?
He is not by any means a "Lame Duck."
Over the next two years will do greater damage to our Republic than his previous 6.
He is working outside the Constitution working to destroy the very foundation of our Republic. "Lame Duck" can only apply to Presidents that respect the Constitution.
Please, tell me how he is a "Lame Duck." I am curious to know.
The cabal that is behind Obama and, thru Valerie Jarrett, runs him,, has invested a great deal of time, effort and money to put him where he is. I have speculated that this cabal consists of a network of domestic Communists (e.g. William Ayers), with the monetary backing of the Muslim Brotherhood.
From their standpoint, the Obama administration has been a major success thus far. But they are still short of achieving a permanent crippling of the USA (or the Great Satan, depending on which side of the coalition we're talking about).
And, in that regard, Barack Obama has become a burden. He is no longer a useful tool. Indeed, his personal failure is now jeopardizing their entire enterprise.
At this point, Obama would be of value to them as a...martyr. And only as a martyr.
And, in the event, you know who will be blamed...
Personally, I would volunteer to be a human shield for the next 2 1/2 years.
Totally disagree with you!!! But....you are entitled to ur opinion!!! The one thing you are dead right about....Obama from day one was on a mission with his “hate America” Democrat traitor cohorts to destroy America and the American economy!!! It has been the plan all along!!! Problem is, his “hate America” Obamabots never vetted him out and discovered what a not-too-bright, untalented, loser...Obama is!!! I think we will have a clearer picture, after the Mid-Term elections of November, 2014 are in!!!
It was a painfully awkward speech to be sure, but we are reminded that 0bama isn’t, nor will he be, running for anything. He’s got the job and we’re stuck with him for the next couple of years. He can make all the clunkers he wants, it doesn’t matter except that he’s in Jimmuh Cahtah territory when it comes to credibility. And the last time I checked Jimmuh still gets quoted at length every time he opens his superannuated yap.
Obama is all about symbolism over substance. There is no substance at all, but the media do their best to help him pretend that the symbols he creates as needed actually matter in the real world.
Check out #36.
This is the best summer I’ve had since I was a kid.
Who exactly is "The Obama Cabal"?
LOL Some deep thinking there!! I guess that settles it -- Obama's policies are wonderful -- lol.
You are either very, very naive, or a DUmpster masquerading as a Conservative.
Thanks for the laugh... lol

There were a couple of threads yesterday about 0b0z0’s directive issued 12/29/2010 about authorizing our military to help local government to restore order in case of civilian “disturbances.”
Some asked, how would this administration “start” something or what particular incident would they wait for in order to use the military against civilians.
Well, what you said might be the huge incident they’re looking to exploit to take over completely.
That wouldn’t be a Reichstag Fire, rather, a Reichstag Volcano.
That’s the speech where she reminds the graduates that the long haired hippie commies mocking and hating them do so because they are superior to the leftists, and that drives the left’s hate.
Your links display how the Obama White House is infested with Communists. His past, of course, is also infested with the breed.
However, I believe there is more to the "Obama Cabal" than simply Communism. For example, I note two things:
a. In every case, Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East has been directed toward favoring the Muslim Brotherhood -- the faction that spawned radical Islamism. In Libya, in Egypt, in Tunisia, in Syria, etc. Even in Iran. In every friggin' case...
b. The Obama administration has been thoroughly and selectively infiltrated by active members of the Brotherhood. The State Department, famously, by Huma Abedin, et al. But, more generally, the various security services. The MB is deeply involved in the instruments of our foreign policy and national security. But try to find an Arab in the Department of Agriculture.
On the surface, Communists and radical Islamists are strange bedfellows. But their cooperation is totally consistent with an "enemy of my enemy is my friend" philosophy. And there is good reason for a relationship between the network of domestic Communists and the Islamists.
At one time, the domestic network of Communists was lavishly funded by the Soviet Union. But this pipeline of cash started drying up in the eighties. At about the same time, Muslim Brotherhood money and influence started showing up among the black activist minority -- which had already been recruited by the Communists for their purposes.
When the Wall went down, it became necessary for the Communists to join forces with the MB, in order to maintain their subversive activity.
The Communist subversives put their organization at the disposal of the MB subversives in return for funding. The deal they cut was: domestic policy belonged to the Reds, foreign policy belonged to the Islamists.
Despite Obama's flagging popularity, the cabal has an investment...and they have a goal: Bring the USA to its knees...via internal subversion. The question now is: How do they salvage their investment in Obama and retain power long enough (and strongly enough) to achieve their objective?
If Obama is of no further use, then...
Paying student loans is ‘off in the future’ for many - but being forced to buy Obamacare’s right now.
Also the ‘disabled’ which is - - what? - 50% of Detroit? They don’t have to pay back their student loans already. So who are democrats aiming this new give-away at?
