West Point Gives The Cold Shoulder To President Obama
Breitbart ^ | 29 May 2014 | by JORDAN SCHACHTEL

Posted on 05/29/2014 4:47:04 PM PDT by kingattax

President Barack Obama received a chilly reception for his warnings against the alleged dangers of climate change during his address at West Point Wednesday.

The cadets exhibited little warmth in applauding their Commander in Chief, which should come as little shock when considering the actual dangers these American soldiers will face upon graduating.

The Commander in Chief took the time to warn of the so-called dangers of global warming, urging the cadets to “make commitments to combat climate change.”

Our troops, many of whom lay down their lives each and every day to protect the individual freedoms of every American, were being told that they weren’t doing enough.

With all due respect to the Commander in Chief, they can’t fumigate the place.

The creep considers himself a “citizen of the world”

And he told the USMA grads they will be fighting for “peace and prosperity” not just for America but for other nations as well!

~~~dangers of global warming~~~

Can’t we launch missiles at Global Warming?

You know, like Pew! Pew! Pew!.

Or send a Tweet with a special hashtag or something?

It won't trouble the left in the least. In this video, a NBC foreign affairs reporter I'd unable to name a single country with which we have better relations now than under Bush! Amazingly enough, the reporter blames that on Bush. In short, the reporter says that the Bush foreign policy was so heavy handed and violent that countries cannot yet adjust to the peaceful and ethical policy of Obama. I don't know if Obama learned to lie from the MSM or the other way around. Actually, Obama has prospered his entire life by blatant lying and charming progressives into believing him.

Dig this:

The question you [the American armed forces] will face – is not whether America will lead, but how we will lead, not just to secure our peace and prosperity, but also to extend peace and prosperity around the globe.

This commie op is doing more to destroy the country than Brezhnev ever could have.

There is also a video of President Bush's last speech at West Point as Commander-in-Chief. The respect the cadets showed him, and the class that President Bush showed is thrilling.

The Cadets did not quite cross the line into open disrespect, but it is phenomenally obvious that they value duty, honor, and country - and don’t see the same values in the speaker. Obama pauses for a number of applause lines that fall flat and for a few that are obviously there to make the cadets applaud, tepidly but better than for Obama’s distasteful real message, and in the dreams of the speechwriter to break the ice.

If history is written by sane men and women, our shame and embarrassment as a nation — under this puke’s “leadership” — will echo down through the ages. (But it probably won’t be. And Obama will probably be canonized in the “history” books of the future.)

Here's an earlier link to videos of graduating cadets' standing ovations to President Reagan and President Bush at their respective West Point Commencement appearances, compared to the cadets remaining in their seats with tepid hand movements for Traitorobama in 2014.

I posted this on an earlier thread. President Bush at West Point. Amazing though - as soon as he said “thank you, please sit down” it was SILENT!

Also - about 5 minutes long for the entire thing. And it was mostly about the cadets, thanking them, etc. (20 seconds or so on new policies, etc.)
