Photo of the Day: Scene From the Obama West Point Speech

By Debbie Schlussel

Saw this in the print edition of USA Today (can’t find it anywhere online).  I think it’s the best photo from last night’s wimpy Obama Afghanistan speech at West Point.  If a picture speaks a thousand words, this one speaks a million.  And by the way, check out the headline that accompanied the article in which this appeared.  “Rapt audience”?  HA!  Oh, and since Chris Matthews thinks West Point is “the enemy camp,” it’s only logical to conclude he thinks Bin Laden is “the friendly camp.”  Trust me, Bin Laden isn’t worried about being killed anytime soon, especially not with Barack Hussein Obama as the “leader” of the free world.

I am so tired of this Usurper in the White House. He continues to convey an apologetic attitude to the world! We need a patriot in the WH!

I believe Obama is very serious about finding bin laden – so he can bow to him.

    tempus fugit – and after bowing to Bin Laden, Omoron will promise him a civilian jury trial with a jury of his peers.

How many of the kids currently in the military academies will drop out after hearing Odopey’s speak last night? This Commander in Thievery and Treason said nothing last night and gave the muzzies exactly what they wanted to hear – our President is a pussy who has absolutely no idea how to run a military!

How about we send the FLOTUS over to Afghanistan? The terrorists would get one look at that nasty scowl and would run for cover.

Debbie, you can find more pictures of the Cadets in yahoo newsphotos — pictures 347-350. By the way, I hope you will post a review of Mike Church’s movie “Spirit if ’76” — I believe he’s showing it tonight.

    W: Thx. The review will be up tomorrow, as I believe Mike is showing the movie tomorrow night. DS

Iran is such a tiny “country”. We can bankrupt it in 90 days by boycotting its oil.

Why would Obama increase troops to a war which Obama has already declared that winning isn’t our goal…

“Trust me, Bin Laden isn’t worried about being killed anytime soon, especially not with Barack Hussein Obama as the “leader” of the free world.”

UBL had nothing to worry with the previous President either after all he had 8 years to try to kill him and FAILED COMPLETELY. Why not address the facts that the previous President failed to keep us safe on 9/11 and then allowed Bin Laden to get away.

    B: Too True. DS

Hate to rain on everyones parade but this young man may have knee capped his own military career before it was even out of the starting gate. Don’t think for a minute that the goons in the whitehouse haven’t fingered this picture and targeted this young man. Fine line between balls and stupidity.

Joe on December 2, 2009 at 2:18 pm

Joe: Trust me its probably the best thing for him if they find him and boot him out of the academy now before they send his fellow cadets over with an empty gun and a bulls-eye on their backs. It took him all this time to let the arab nation how long they have to wait before they can take over again. I wonder how many people on this site was so fed up with Bush they voted for Obama?

Guys, blame the shadow government with their creations of Bin Laden and Al-CIA-DA—YOU GET THAT, Al-QAEDA IS A CIA CREATION AND DOES NOT EXIST! THE BBC EVEN SAID SO!

I didn’t purposfully watch the teleprompter last night, but as I was walking from one room to another I caught the most brazen part of his “speech”, and I’m surprised no one has posted anything on it as yet……

He had the audacity to state “After the most horrific attack on American soil, this country was United as One with the sole purpose of the war in Afghanistan to defeat Muslim terrorists” and we need to Unite again in this common goal”

Now I believe, or maybe its just my imagination….but I think that for the entire year Obambi campaigned, he stated that he was the only voice decrying the wars and that the United States should have never invaded Iraq or Afghanistan. Although he was more for the war in Afghanistan than Iraq but to say WE were united to go to war in Afghanistan is a lie.

I also clearly remember all of the major news outlets and the liberals in this country screaming daily for 7 years how Bush was a war monger and that we should have never gone to war in the middle east……But now that Obambi is in “charge” somehow our recent and his recent history has been re-written.

Something the Muslims have been doing for 2,000 years so its not that surprising after all…..

Porrazzo: you shouldn’t stop taking your meds. Your doctor told you what could happen. Now go put your foil helmet back on and tell your mother you want a pop tart.

Joe on December 2, 2009 at 6:48 pm

Great picture for the ages.

CaliforniaScreaming on December 2, 2009 at 7:32 pm

I’ve seen this pic from another angle. He’s wearing the Combat Infantryman’s Badge. This young man has already seen combat at least once before. Likely enlisted and then sent to West Point. Of the two people mentioned in this article, B Hussein Obama and the soldier, only one has seen combat live…

Sean on December 3, 2009 at 3:20 am

These photo’s were taken before the speech.
However the best are of the cadets ASLEEP

President Obama made it very clear during his campaign that he was going to concentrate on Afghanistan, which harbored Bin Laden and Al Queda, instead of Iraq, which did not. If Bushyhead had done the same, instead of trying to take over an oil rich country whose former favorite dictator had turned on us, we wouldn’t be in this fix to begin with. Oh, and I’m a little sick of you morons using my man’s almost full name as if it’s very existence makes him somehow less than American. If you want to use the full name, put a “junior” after it, since he was named entirely for his daddy, even though he wasn’t raised by him.

Beth on December 3, 2009 at 4:54 pm

Tonight, I’m going to find myself, err, rapt up in a good book!

Phil on December 3, 2009 at 8:02 pm


This photo is part of a series of AP photos. Yahoo has them on their main page, another book was titled, “On Killing”.

Patrick on December 3, 2009 at 10:35 pm

Beth…you sound like the moron.

“…my man’s almost full name…”

Is he your dream man? Do you swoon over him?

Anyways, I really do not have a whole lot of respect for a president who has never served in the military…Democrat, Republican, or any party. I have a lot more respect for the cadets.

Angela04 on December 4, 2009 at 7:34 pm

“my man”? Hope you got this all worked out with Michelle. She looks pretty big and mean to me. (Hey, he uses his name when it’s helpful; we’ll use it any time we feel like it. If he doesn’t like it, he shouldda stayed Barry Soreto. Maybe he did, since we’ve never seen documents for a name change.)

Oh – your comment was so far out, maybe you were being sarc. If so, excuse this reply.
