I can only imagine that President Ego is trying to figure out how to Article 32 an entire base:
President Barack Obama was greeted with fleeting applause and extended periods of silence as he offered profuse praise to soldiers and their families during an Aug. 31 speech in Fort Bliss, Texas.
His praise for the soldiers — and for his own national-security policies — won cheers from only a small proportion of the soldiers and families in the cavernous aircraft-hangar.
The audience remains quiet even when the commander-in-chief thanked the soldiers’ families, and cited the 198 deaths of their comrades in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The audience’s reaction was so flat that the president tried twice to elicit a reaction from the crowd.
“Hey, I hear you,” he said amid silence.
The selected soldiers who were arrayed behind the president sat quietly throughout the speech.
CNN and MSNBC ended their coverage of the speech before it was half-over.
Every single day, it is becoming more and more apparent that the damn is breaking against Obama. There was almost something of a “Bless his heart” attitude that has surrounded the President. People wanted to him to succeed, because he is the first (partially) black President, because they liked his rhetoric and messaging, and because wanted to think they bet right when they cast their vote in 2008.
The meanness and viciousness of his campaign in recent weeks, however, has caused the dam to break. People no longer feel like they have to act like they like the President. It has become okay to admit his is a vicious, out of his league pretender. It is going to get a little worse for him every day from now through the election.
Every. Single. Day.
