The President's speech at West Point

I just finished watching the President's speech while blogging. OK. I was mostly blogging and the President was speaking in the background.

I don't understand the dog and pony show of speaking at West Point. Well, I think I do understand. He wanted to capitalize on the image of the military clapping for him, which of course they would do out of respect, regardless of what he said. Do you think?

Why didn't he speak from his desk in the Oval Office like a serious commander in chief. Instead, he wasted the taxpayers money by flying to West point for what looks like nothing more than political grandstanding. We shouldn't have to pay for that.

It's very transparent and almost embarrassing.

He's always putting on a dog and pony show with our tax money...always..I don't understand people who voted for this person who were all about giving to the poor..making sure everyone has healthcare, but do not care what he does with our money concerning flying all over the flippin place and doing what? We pay for that Oval Office desk that he doesn't seem to know how to sit still in for 5 min. a day! Okay..I'm done with my rant.
Otherwise, have a good day, Rosemary..you didn't do nuttin wrong..lol! :)

Agreed. I was ALMOST embarrassed for him...since he didn't seem to be embarrassed for himself.
