What’s Cut from Obama’s West Point Speech Says Much About Him
Drudge has an interesting little snippet concerning President Obama’s recent speech before the graduating class at West Point. It is a short headline about what was cut from Obama’s speech, a cut that really says a lot about the arrogance of team Obama as well as his utter lack of spontaneity and sincerity and his slavish reliance on the teleprompter.
Here’s the little snippet on Drudge:
Tepid applause from cadets: Cuts ‘That’s a lot of cheering’ line from prepared remarks…
So let’s let this straight. Obama actually had written into his speech ahead of time that there was to be “a lot of cheering”? This man who campaigned against the work of these soldiers to be, this man from a party that has called these soldiers murderers, criminals, dullards, and dangerous, these folks were expected to give this president “a lot of cheering”? Obama really expected a lot of cheering from folks he and his party hate so much?
There’s a break from sanity in the Obama White House, for sure.
But not only was it arrogant of Obama to expect “a lot of cheering” from people he hates and has treated like dirt, that it was actually written into the speech at all shows that he can’t even come up with a spontaneous line without the teleprompters telling him to say it.
Finally the fact that he had to cut it and forgo saying it because there simply wasn’t “a lot of cheering” says that these soldiers to be aren’t as stupid as the left imagines they are. These young men and women clearly understood that Barack Obama and his party are not friends to our armed forces. They applauded dutifully for their commander-in-chief, but they were not enthusiastic. Fully the correct response.
So, if what Drudge reported is true (and there is a chance it isn’t, granted) this little factoid says an awful lot about this Carter redux we have in office today. And none of it is good.

The strange tribal rituals of dancing to prevent global warming…
In 2007, author William Gibson wrote the phrase the â€œCold Civil Warâ€ for one of his science fiction novels. That led blogger April Gavaza, also known as the â€œHyacinth Girl,â€ as well as Mark Steyn to pick up on the concept a year later. But of course, as General McChrystalâ€™s disastrous interview with Rolling Stone and his subsequent dismissal illustrates, the media isnâ€™t just where wars are fought domestically, as we discuss in the latest edition of our Silicon Graffiti video blog
Once again we see that anything that Obama says has an expiration date. In 2006, then Senator Obama was a
