I dont want to come right out and say that BO is losing it. Butt for a guy who has been regaled for his rhetorical gifts, has raised over $1 billion in campaign funds, and ran a political organization the envy of Tammany Hall, how else do you explain all these things?
Tell me, how can someone like Big Guy surround himself with so many incompetent people heading up so many agencies that keep coming up with such suboptimal outcomes?
For starters: an IRS staffed with senior management who either know nothing,
or are unwilling to tell us what they do know, for fear of incriminating themselves.
Lois takes the Fifth: Oh sure, now they all believe in the Constitution.
An Attorney General who knows even less,
and an ex-Secretary of State who doesnt even know what difference it makes.
So Big Guy gets a chance to change the subject from a week of embarrassing non-testimony on the Hill about various scandals by addressing the graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy yesterday. And what does our Orator in Chief do? Give a soaring patriotic speech just ahead of the Memorial Day weekend? No. He goes off and gives a tone-deaf commencement
lecture speech. Add our speech writers to the growing list of sub-optimal.
Every day, elected officials like those on this stage, but also all across the nation, devote themselves to improving our communities and our country.
GSA Administrator Jeff Neely, chillin in Vegas, baby!
But all too often weve seen a politics where compromise is rejected as a dirty word, and policies are driven by special interests rather than the national interest.
And that breeds a cynicism that threatens our democracy.
Every day, our civil servants do their jobs with professionalism -- protecting our national security
and delivering the services that so many Americans expect.
But as weve seen again in recent days, it only takes the misconduct of a few to further erode the peoples trust in their government.
Thats unacceptable to me, and I know its unacceptable to you.
And against this backdrop, what I said here four years ago remains true today: Our military remains the most trusted institution in America
And yet, we must acknowledge that even here, even in our military, weve seen how the misconduct of some can have effects that ripple far and wide. In our digital age, a single image from the battlefield of troops falling short of their standards can go viral and endanger our forces and undermine our efforts to achieve security and peace.
Likewise, those who commit sexual assault are not only committing a crime, they threaten the trust and discipline that make our military strong. Thats why we have to be determined to stop these crimes, because theyve got no place in the greatest military on Earth.
Excuse me? Did I hear that right!? Hes lecturing the graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy about sexual assault? At their graduation ceremony!!?? Is that really appropriate, even if you are the man who can fix anything with his silver tongue?
The Commander-in-Chief man-handles one of the new female Naval Academy grads. I think thats unacceptable.
Gosh, I dont know what to make of all this. Maybe its time to go shopping for a new chair?
This ones too big this ones too small
Okay, that one looks just right. And very presidential, even empty; Ill take it.
Of course, it looks far more presidential with a President in it.

“Sub-optimal” means - he bombed?
This is happening more and more often to The Won, now that his eternal campaign is beginning to founder.
At some point, the Current Occupant of the White Hut is either going to have to stop campaigning and actually BECOME some sort of administrator, or forever remain marginalized and adrift, much like Jimmy Carter was in the last two years of his one and only term.
What is the goal of the leadership of the Democrat party?
A. Turn the United States into a socialist country.
B. Turn the United States into a Moslem country.
C. Make the United States the greatest nation ever.
D. Stuff as much US taxpayer money into their pockets as they can.
And by the way, just because they “launder” US taxpayer money by handing it out to their buddies who give it back to them in contributions and phony book deals doesn’t mean they didn’t steal it. They are stealing US taxpayer funds. If I steal $100 from the US treasury and give it to you and you give $10 of the stolen money back to me, I’ve still stolen $100 from the US taxpayers.
yup!...He can change thousands of years of evolution and what men and women were designed to do with a single speech....the guy is simply amazing....../s
when the skittles from the Unicons a$$ begins to taste like poop....its called Sub-optimal
When your mind and soul is in the gutter with the baby killers, homosexuals, lesbians and fellow haters of America, you’re just going to sound like an a-—hole every time you open your maw.
This bast-rd is about as clueless as a Marxist fool can be.
Black and other minorities at USNA got preferential treatment when they committed sexual assault. The one is the cross hairs of this program are the hetro white males.
On a radio talk show a clip was played with Obama blathering, “As your commander in chief I...blah blah blah etc”.
Without bothering to hear the rest, that right there is ridiculous. He’s their CIC but hides from his job, lies for weeks about a video, claims he couldn’t do anything, says he doesn’t know what happened and has to investigate and on and on and on.
To play the CIC card THERE, while hiding it on the bottom of the deck the rest of the time, is not only disgusting, it’s NUTS.
That photo of the big hug by Cupcake is very interesting. Not only is the ‘graduate’ apparently a negro, but probably another leftie joining the already decimated ranks of our military.

I can hear hte whining fro mthe left already “Oh you bullies o nthe right neve3r give credit where credit is due- no matter what htis ‘president’ does, you iwll neve3r give him an ounce of credit... sniff sniff”
The sandwich has mayonnaise.
Why aren’t the media assuring us that Obie’s Naval Academy speech was more inspirational than the Gettysburg Address?
Isn’t that their usual meme?
a graduation speech is NOT the place to be bloviating bull$h!t, it is to reward hard work and to envision to the future
Read the speech.
that had no place at a graduation speech...
Okay. That was what reporters and outsiders might be listening for, but that wasn’t the whole speech. There was plenty of the “we’re proud of you” stuff for the grads as well — maybe more than in some other politicians’ commencement speeches. Outsiders tune that stuff out, just as the grads probably let the political stuff go in one ear and out the other.
