Here goes the teleprompter-in-chief. He tripped over the word Eisenhower!!!!!
He never studied American history in any of his fancy schools.
And he has not written very many speeches in his own history.
He is totally reliant on the words someone has put in front of him. He is so arrogant that he b’lieves he can fool all of the people all of the time - without even trying.
Well, the Chosen one has started speaking. Acting like he has a clue what he is reading about. I fear it will be “The Longest Speech.”
I hope the Rangers can make it to the top of the cliff and take out the teleprompters...
He’s not connected to what he’s saying . . . there’s no emotion in his voice. He’s reading a speech. That’s all.
He is odd.
I lkely will not be the last ......????
I had the same reaction?!?!?! Does he know something I don’t about the term limits of a Pres?
The mediocrity is stunning.
Excellent description. TOTUS is speaking.
It has all the emotion of a reduced Cliff’s Notes of D-Day.
Brown tried to turn this into the job is only half done and we must have a global one world order.
I tried to get Sarkozy’s speech on replay but caught Brown. Now I have Obama but it sounds like nothing more than a speech. No emotional value so I’m shutting it off.
Sticking with the folks here with real heartfelt memories and gratitude.
As odd as “I’m not the first”.....it’s all about the O; I cannot believe this is how he introduced his speech.
Nothing in today’s world speaks to what is universal . . . so says our president.
Did we have a right to impose our values on Nazi Germany?
hERE COMES THE CRITICISM !
the nations who fought Hitler were not Perfect!
Maybe he was not talking about term limits, but his vision of the United States at the end of s term.
(Allied) nations made their share of mistakes.
Here he goes with demeaning the Allied forces, saying they weren't perfect...they made their share of mistakes. What an a-hole!
This is gonna be his best
Lauding the efforts of the Nazis, while
bashing the incompetence of the Allies
ever! Wonder if he used to practice this, or if it’s just his diseased minions’ words?
BINGO! He doesn't believe a word that he's reading.
Than man has no heart, no soul. OMG he’s starting with the religion thing...people of all faiths, of no faith...did he really say that?
This speech is falling flatter than Wiley E. Coyote being smashed by a thirty ton anvil.
Others can read from a teleprompter without having the screens set up above their line of sight. Why does Obama have to have them set so he always acquires the Mussolini posture while reading from them?
Does he do it for that purpose, so he looks all snobby and stuff with his nose stuck in the air, or does he just not know any better?
I mean, in that pose, if it rained, he’d drown.
good mercy, thank goodness the chaplain prayed to the one true God!
“citizens of all faiths”....well, there ya go!
LOL! TOTUS is not cooperating today.
I don’t recall the other world leaders incorporating family.
But Obama brings in his granny.
Ahhhh, I wondered where I had seen those words before!
Yep. But I'm not the POTUS. I wish he thought so, too.
He invokes his grandmother? (Is that the same grandmother he threw under the bus in his speech on race?)
the Bamster never ceazes to floor me!
Why is Lyndon Johnson being brought up???
“people of all faiths, of no faith”
He obviously doesn’t know the old truism “there are no atheists in foxholes”.
TOTUS must have had too much French Wine last night.
He’s rambling . . . .
I’m awaiting the explanation for the utter classless act of spitting in the face of our French hosts.
Will the media even bother to give us one. Or do we just go with the usual third world explanation that like the UK, the French are colonialists.
Obama is .....not representing Americans today. (self-edit)
Apologies to all of France for our classless representative refusing the gracious hosts.
TOTUS has jet lag.
Holy crap- this is yet ANOTHER campaign speech. He’s citing the workers in different states who built the equipment...which normally wouldn’t be odd- but from THIS man..
“...the shared prosperity...”
this is the most bizzare speech.
What is this? A boring history lecture? It’s like he, or his writer, spent a few nights reading about D Day and WW2 and are trying to cram all the facts they learned, relevant and irrelevant, into this speech.
Right, Obama brings in his granny while Queen Elizabeth is not invited... Maybe he was afraid she would upstage his granny.
BO’s really not connected to American history or the fight for freedom.
Obama quoting Lyndon Johnson now. Go figure. Next he’ll be quoting Kofi Annan. LOL!
“Human destiny is not determined by forces beyond our control.”
There’s that arrogance creeping in again....
‘the sum choices of our decisions?”
We all had grandmothers who lived during WW2, so what?
I bet he and Michelle are extremely uncomfortable after Sarkozy's speech. The others were OK, too. He is on shaky ground here.
