Semi-retired President’s Painful Flat VA Speech

Maybe Obama needs to add ASOTHUS (Applause Sign Of The USA) to go with TOTUS

(The Blaze) President Barack Obama at times faced an unenthusiastic crowd as he addressed American military veterans at American Legion’s National convention on Tuesday. As the Daily Mail puts it, Obama received “awkward silences where White House speechwriters expected ovations.”

“You know that we should never send America’s sons and daughters into harm’s way unless it is absolutely necessary and we have a plan and we are resourcing it and prepared to see it through,” Obama said.

After a brief moment of silence, weak applause followed.

A seemingly weaker response followed when Obama said America’s “longest war” in Afghanistan would soon come to a “responsible end.”

However, one of the most awkward moments came when the president had to wait several seconds for any response from the audience.

“As we go forward, we will continue to partner with Afghans so their country can never again be used to launch attacks against the United States,” he said.

Several seconds of awkward silence followed before scattered clapping is heard.

The Right Pundit has compiled a video containing several moments where applause lines received very tepid clapping or just plain silence:

Urf. O is more used to starry eyed adulation from audiences. He doesn’t fare quite as well when he steps out.

As the Right Pundit notes, “It looked like he didn’t really want to be there and if you listen to the reaction of the convention goers to his speech, they might not have wanted to be there either.”

I’m betting Kay Hagan didn’t want to be there after that performance, either.

    Gotta love it.

    This illegal president(his father was a British citizen, not an American citizen as required by our Constitution)* is finally getting the likewarm responses he has always deserved. I would love to see him actually shamed off a dais sometime.

    I can only conclude he rushed off to the nearest golf course after this embarrassing performance.

    *Yes, I know there are endless arguments about a presidential candidates qualifications, including what citizenship his parents held. I agree with the camp that contends both parents have to be natural born citizens, something Obama does not have.


    I believe our forefathers, in the process of shaking off the yoke of the English royalty, wanted to ensure no further interference from foreign rulers, and Constitutionally requiring that a candidate have natural born American parents went a long way in guaranteeing that.

    Accordingly, Politician like Rubio are not qualified presidential candidates.
