Barack Obama Knows Now What Itís Like to Give a Speech Where Only One Man Claps
International Journal Review ^ | 3-26-14 | Mike Miller

VIDEO AT LINK

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing.

At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy.

One.

After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home.

It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap.

Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

And let’s not forget to include Joe (Plugs McKenzie) Biden, King of the Morons, or the Congressional “Leaders” from both parties when discussing our “decline.” Obama has had a lot of help getting to where he is today.

Did Chris watch? Did he feel a tingling down his leg?

They have pretty good crowd control over there. Obviously they were able to keep all the morons out, except for one.

And I thought the nation could have done better than Bush...

Imagine how much better it could have done than Obama.

Name anyone running on either side in 2008, and they would have been better than this d-less wonder.

Master to Grasshopper "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"

Grasshopper to Master "I do not know, why don't you ask Obama?"

This just shows that Obama is not only “the one” but
also a Zen master and knows the meaning of
‘the sound of one man clapping”.

I guess there weren’t many media there or the applause
would have been larger...

I’m hoping Rush picks up on this tomorrow. If so, he’s gonna have a field day with it.

BTW kingattax, thanks for the link and late night laugh.

And that guy only clapped for a second or two...

I half expected Obama to come back out for an encore or to take a bow based on his self-image alone.

Were everyone else in the room too busy giving him the middle finger to clap?

Oh the president was. Well, he was probably in denial. BUt it seemed he looked around for people to come up and talk to him. No one looked at him. the camera crews, the press, no one cared to interview him.

THey don’t dislike him for the exact reason we might think, but they are just not interested.

Americans go to Europe, to France, and we throw money at everything. They are just not interested in that. And it frustrated people like BO. For all his ‘I hat the rich’ Schtick, he sure loves for people to use him for his money. This is what happens when a wealthy neglected bossy kid goes off to live in the world and no one is impressed.

“Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap.”

And that was probably from one of his handlers.

Obama probably went back to his hotel suite, smoked a joint and pouted.

The world knews Obama is an empty suit....

That side of the pond expects American leadership to do it’s dirty work and keep people like Putin and the various other wanna be powers in check...

Obama is no longer holding their hands and babysitting them...

That’s why the tepid response....

I watched the video yesterday and I might have to watch it again ... I think I heard bambi say “applause?” after he was done and realized no one was clapping.

TOTUS was obviously not there ... apparent by Obama’s incoherent rambling.

it may NOT have been a tingling...more likely a different
substance altogether from someone in the crowd..
