Hilarious: Only one person slow claps after Obama speaks in Netherlands
American Thinker ^ | Mar 27, 2014 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 03/27/2014 6:41:17 AM PDT by EXCH54FE

The magic is gone, and the adoring crowds in Berlin 2008 must seem only a distant memory. While spring has arrived for everyone else in the Northern Hemisphere, Barack Obama is entering his winter. As his presidency implodes in a cloud of Obamacare incompetence and foreign policy blunders, even the Europeans who once adored him have caught on to what an empty suit Barack Obama is.

The look on the Presidents face as he glares at the crowd when leaving at around 56 seconds into the vid tells even more of the story

Ya know?

And that person was clapping in joy at not having to listen to the voice of the multiverse’s most inept, stupid, semi-literate POS.

He’s no longer the rock star in Europe.

He’s now the pimply geek hall monitor that no one wants to be seen talking to.

Obama is in so far over his head at this point if he swung his head side to side he might be able to locate the black box of flight MH370.

The camera man that shook his head afterwards says something in itself too. 0 has become a pariah to everyone. It was clearly evident he was just babbling his standard lines of BS and probably more concerned about when he could it the links again or get the new Ping driver he wants

Hm. I’ve reviewed a few other press briefings, and it seems that nobody ever “claps” after one of them. So maybe it’s not that the president didn’t receive an ovation, it’s that one person slow-clapped.

THat was the one thing I was wondering about - I didn’t recall a lot of clapping after press conferences wither - but it could just be that I’m too ticked off by that point to commit anything to memory

LOL, he was looking for an adoring fan to wave at. Couldn’t find one, so he walked off as quickly as possible.

One person slow claps?

No clapping could be spun as the crowd not knowing he was done speaking etc., but slow clapping - definitely mocking.

I like it.

Just looking at his facial expressions, he seems detatched, resigned to lies and talking points. He doesn’t believe a word of it either, it’s all lies, obfuscation, and tedious time killing for liv’s.

He’s never been in it achieve anything particularly, except self aggrandizement and adulation.

Charlatan and huckster, sham wow guy who realizes his product is crap.

The Europeans wanted us to elect Obama because they knew he would hurt American businesses. They thought they could pick up some market share for their products. Now that the Russian bear is growling, they wet their pants and long for the good old days when America protected them. Maybe Putin will buy a Pugeot.

You know how hard it is to just fill time? Pretty tough. Think how hard it’s going to be to fill the next 34 months. FRiends, we are in for most horendous amount of BS, the likes we have never seen. obama will have the hardest time filling all that time. We will suffer through it. Hopefully, this will finally expose him to all the LIV’s for what he really is, an inexperienced, affirmative action community organizer with absolutely NO prior leadership skills or abilities. The msm will slowly abandon him. He will be like a cub scout lost in the rainy woods at night without a compass or light. I pray we can survive the next 34 months.

If he’d had his Greek columns up he might have gotten two claps.

I don’t think the crowd woke up in time to clap. By the time they realized he was done he was out the door. It’s happened to me at a few functions. You know how it is, when you find yourself catching your head before it falls off.

Just listening to a minute of him speaking now, I was already getting drowsy. I can’t imagine sitting for an hour of the same and remaining conscious.

If a group wanted to put a man in the white house who would do their bidding and never ask questions, obama would be the perfect pick. All he wanted was the fame and the perks and the wealth afterwards.

I can hear carney spinning this now. It’s not traditional in europe for the press corpse to applaud.

I’d love to see obarry reduced to a full blown whimpering pile of mush.

I took glee in seeing the emotion of disappointment written all over him.

Yahoo! Kick the living hell out of him when he is down.
