I Guess They Just Racis', Huh?

President Obama got a less-than-enthusiastic reception at the National American Legion convention here in Charlotte.

So when Obama began by lecturing the veterans about cynicism and explaining his most recent foreign policy choices — instead of addressing the VA crisis — the audience clearly wasn’t pleased.

Fox News cameras captured a sea of blank or frowning faces looking silently back at the president as he paused for failed applause line after failed applause line.

Obama’s assertion of the indispensability of American leadership worldwide failed to merit a single clap. And when he outlined the “progress” made in Afghanistan, the president resolutely paused for several agonizing seconds until the veterans provided their tepid support.

What did he suspect? He has shown disdain for the American military time and time again. It's time the Veterans show their disdain for Obama.

For some reason the vets may have expected something relevant and truthful. You'd think they'd have learned by now.

Tepid is a polite way to say he didn't get much (ANY) support...

+3 to all, my opinion of him would result in a sailors rant containing large amounts of profanity while drinking coffee during a DRB. I will keep it clean.
