It’s a campaign speech. It’s disgusting to listen to this man. Detestable.
To be known hereafter as the “ if it rained, hed drown pose “....good’n!
Who wrote this speech?! You could have hidden behind bushe’s? WTF?!
Why isn’t the “leader of the free world” speaking of freedom and the price paid for this God-given right?
I am still waiting for him to work in the other 52 states in his speech.
“Hes not connected to what hes saying . . . theres no emotion in his voice. Hes reading a speech. Thats all.”
In trying to catch a replay of Sarkozy I stepped into Brown and the first couple of minutes of the Kenyan. Agree with your posts completely. I turned off CSPAN.
Obama could be giving a speech in Iowa. Except that means much more to him.
Since it’s about him.
I can't....I love my country too much.
Must mute this person!...NOW!....my blood pressure doesn't need this workout.
Ah yes, the fake hero of WW2--LBJ.
Here comes Grandpa, Uncle....
More family history from Zero.
“Here he goes with demeaning the Allied forces, saying they weren’t perfect...they made their share of mistakes. What an a-hole! “
Will America please WAKE UP to this nightmare!
For me....ME ME ME ME!
here comes the uncle story......YEESH.
What does that mean? I give up, this guy is killing me. Why is he always talking about himself. He never even talks to his uncle until it's politically expedient!!!
Now we’re on to his grandfather and great uncle.
EVERYTHING is about him.
This is embarrassing.
“Hes rambling . . . .”
He sure is. Although the Socialist is remembering those brave soldiers and their sacrifices, he has yet to say thanks.
This speech is disgusting....I’m ashamed and embarrassed by him. Invoking his own family, dismissing all others, and whoever said it above, he is completely detached from what he is saying. All credit(?) goes to TOTUS, not POTUS.
He just mentioned his uncle again—did he or did he not help liberate the camp Zero just talked about? His uncle is there. I thought that had been debunked.
This is a remarkable day.
We have learned the president of France loves and cherishes our country and our allies with more depth and understanding than our own president.
How can this be?
(and again- he talks about HIS grandfather and great-uncle...ALWAYS about him)
That’s our pledge of allegiance.
“Straight up the hillside, out in the open, in that gorgeous field of fire. We will charge valiantly... and be butchered valiantly! And afterwards men in tall hats and gold watch fobs will thump their chest and say what a brave charge it was.”
The speech is all about Obama.
It’s the Oprah speech. We are all writing little “stories.” Our lives are just stories.
“Change the course of a century?”
Hell, it changed the future. It is *more* than a century.
To hear Zero talk about Minutemen makes me want to projectile vomit.
But he had but a few, late, grudging words for a serviceman killed just this week on American soil. How sincere is he at this moment?
Oh.My.God. He’s babbling on about Lexington and Gettyburg now. Incredible!
Well it looks like Tom Hanks likes the speech.
I wish he would just shut up. FUBO!
What an awful speech. It’s over.
I don’t know what to say.
He has NO idea what WWII was about. None.
I thought that is who that was...figured I could find the answer here on FR.
Go to post # 16 and compare what you just heard to Reagan’s speech in 1984 at Normandy.
"I never fought in a war, but I played it in the movies."
And O wants to aid in that final solution. Destroy the last of the jewish people.
Destroy any vestige of Christianity.
The march towards tyranny began with the banning of prayer in public schools and public squares.
We owe Judge Moore a great debt. Too bad that he didn’t win that battle. Where were we when he fought on?
Little by little we are being destroyed by the despots who would deny our humanity.
Seeing these old soldiers receiving the Legion of Honor is about to make me shed tears...again.
BOs really not connected to American history or the fight for freedom.
Neither is his chief speechwriter, 27 yr old Ivy League educated leftist. From the Washington Post last fall:
During the campaign, the buzz-cut 27-year-old at the corner table helped write and edit some of the most memorable speeches of any recent presidential candidate. When Obama moves to the White House next month, Favreau will join his staff as the youngest person ever to be selected as chief speechwriter. He helps shape almost every word Obama says, yet the two men have formed a concert so harmonized that Favreau’s own voice disappears.
“He looks like he’s in college and everybody calls him Favs, so you’re like, ‘This guy can’t be for real, right?’ “ said Ben Rhodes, another Obama speechwriter. “But it doesn’t take long to realize that he’s totally synced up with Obama. . . . He has access to everything and everybody. There’s a lot weighing on his shoulders.”
i am so nauseous, this guy is Absolutely disgusting. Clinton could have done a much better job and tha tis scairy to say.
What an embarrassment.
Just words that never reach his heart or soul.
CRBDeuce, I apologize to Cliff and company for even comparing this to a reduced version of Cliff’s Notes.
A serious high school student could have written better and certainly with more feeling.
Fortunately, I missed bambi’s speech. Did he use the teleprompter?
WHAT? A 27 YR OLD WRITING THIS SPEECH??/
Did BO mention “freedom” once?
and he has now demonstrated this fact to the world. I didn't hear him utter the words "greatest generation" either, did you? Obama firmly believes he is the greatest.
Change the course of a century?
Hell, it changed the future. It is *more* than a century.
No, I think Obama is right on this point. We defeated Fascism in 1945. In 2009, Obama took office and immediately started to revive it. So, while D-Day changed the course of the 20th Century, Obama undoing that victory as quickly as he can in the 21st. See “Vampire Economy” by Gunter Reiman, 1939.
