It’s a campaign speech. It’s disgusting to listen to this man. Detestable.

Why isn’t the “leader of the free world” speaking of freedom and the price paid for this God-given right?

“He’s not connected to what he’s saying . . . there’s no emotion in his voice. He’s reading a speech. That’s 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.

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.

How unfortunate.

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)

“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.

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.

BO’s 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.”

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.

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.
