Barack Obama Receives ‘Icy Reception’ from Cadets at West Point Visit … It was Not a Commander in Chief Speaking to his Troops
Maybe Barack Obama should have sat down and be made to listen to the graduating US Military cadets on foreign policy … Obama receives icy reception.
The cadets at West Point gave Barack Obama an “icy reception” yesterday at their commencement ceremonies as he rambled on with a meandering, nonsensical foreign policy speech that has drawn bi-partisan criticism. Even the NY Times questioned his big moment on foreign policy speech. The Washington Times reports that less than 25% of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction. OUCH. According to a recent poll, Obama’s approval rating among the military is at 32%, look for that to go down further. During his speech Obama said, “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being.” The problem is that this is the same man who said, if you like your healthcare plan and doctor, you can keep them, PERIOD. No one believes Obama anymore because his actions do not follow his words.
President Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported.
“Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported.
CNN’s international correspondent Jim Clancy called the West Point response to President Obama’s meandering foreign policy address “pretty icy” Wednesday.
Clancy said it was “not really a great speech to give at the U.S. Military Academy,” and the address has drawn bipartisan criticism.
“It was a philosophical speech,” he said. “It was not a Commander-in-Chief speaking to his troops. And you heard the reception. I mean, it was pretty icy.”
UPDATE I: Just how bad was this Obama speech? From The Politico … Editorial boards at three major U.S. newspapers are criticizing President Barack Obama’s foreign policy speech at West Point as incomplete and failing to recognize America’s international standing.

Democrat Kirsten Powers on the Community Agitator Barack Obama’s “Fix” for Obamacare … “He’s Basically Just Creating Chaos”
What, a Sail Alinsky, community agitator creating chaos, say it isn’t so …
Democrat Kirsten Powers nails it while discussing Obama’s “Fix” on Fox News ‘Special Report’. Powers went on to say that the insurance companies were mandated by Obamacare that they had to spend their time putting plans together that were compliant with Obamacare and could no longer offer one’s that did not meet minimum standards. Then at the 11th hour the president just walks out and says, “oh forget that, we are going to do something completely different?” I give Kirsten Powers credit because she is speaking the truth and going against the Obama company talking point.
Kirsten Powers, who actually is one of those people who lost her so-called “substandard” insurance went o to say … “He’s Basically Just Creating Chaos.”
From Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model by David Horowitz: (pdf. version)
After his analysis of Saul Alinsky, Horowitz points out what the grandfather of “social organizing” created “is not salvation but chaos.” Then he asks the crucial question: “And presidential disciples of Alinsky, what will they create?”
How fitting, Barack Obama becomes a Live SNL skit and has his own ‘Emily Litella’ moment with Obamacare’s canceling of so-called substandard policies … “NEVER MIND!”
More from the worst American President in modern times … He truly is an “Abomination”.
Today Barack Hussein Obama blames the gun violence in Mexico on the United States, while in Mexico pandering to the Mexicans. UNREAL. Obama stated, “Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.” Gee Mr. President go you mean like your programs like “Fast & Furious”? After all Mr. President, who was it that was running guns to Mexican drug cartels that resulted in the death of American border guards and the deaths of many innocent Mexicans? Oh that’s right, it was you and Eric Holder.
When will this president stop apologizing for America and blaming it for all of the evils of the world? At some point one has to wonder whether Obama even likes America. At the UK Telegraph they ask, Will Barack Obama ever stop apologizing for America? Because the violence in Mexico could have nothing to do with the drug cartels and a corrupt government, right?
Barack Obama, the Apologist in Chief
Is there no end to the apologies that President Obama has made for his own country? Instead of blaming America, Obama should have called on the Mexican government to do far more to deal with the drug gangs and the rampant lawlessness, which is spilling over the border into the United States. Why not praise the courageous work of US law enforcement agents fighting bravely against Mexican drug cartels?
“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”
“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.
Chris Wallace Provides Post Debate Analysis on FOX News …“You Would Have Thought Romney Was The President” … Romney Said, “Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.”
Attacking Romney and Snark is not a foreign policy or Presidential …
Last night following the third and final 2012 Presidential debate from Lynn University, Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday provided his post game analysis. Wallace said, “You Would Have Thought Romney Was The President.”
Mitt Romney’s objective was to appear Presidential and capable in the eyes of America being President of the United States. Obama’s goal was to trivialize Romney. In the end through his snark and smallness Obama trivialized himself. Many focused on Obama’s snark of horses, bayonets and ships; however, that was hardly the line of the night.
The Presidential line of the evening was when Mitt Romney blasted Barack Obama for his apology tour after taking office and bashing America. Romney stated, Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators. AMEN!
ROMNEY: We’re four years closer to a nuclear Iran. We’re four years closer to a nuclear Iran. And – and – we should not have wasted these four years to the extent they – they continue to be able to spin these centrifuges and get that much closer. That’s number one.
Number two, Mr. President, the reason I call it an apology tour is because you went to the Middle East and you flew to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to Turkey and Iraq. And by the way, you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region, but you went to the other nations.
And by the way, they noticed that you skipped Israel. And then in those nations, and on Arabic TV, you said that America had been dismissive and derisive. You said that on occasion America had dictated to other nations.
Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.
