Obama delivered a speech at the U.S. Naval Academy last Friday.

He emphasized that the misconduct of a few causes mistrust in government.

Well brilliant deduction Watson !!

Doesn't Obama know He Himself may very well be one of those FEW in many peoples' mind these days ?


I wonder what the graduating class really thinks


He seemed a bit "drifty" while speaking.

Almost like He was uncomfortable or something.

The speech lacked His usual powerful impact and punch.

I think it was a "hit and hope" effort.

read the story and watch the videos and see what you think.


President Barack Obama delivered the commencement speech at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., on Friday, blaming the “misconduct of a few” for erosion of the public’s "trust in the government."

“Everyday our civil servants do their jobs with professionalism, protecting our national security and delivering the services that so many Americans expect, but as we’ve seen again in recent days, it only takes the misconduct of a few to further erode to the people’s trust in their government, and that’s unacceptable to me, and I know that’s unacceptable to you,” Obama told graduates.

“It’s no secret that in recent decades, many Americans have lost confidence in many of the institutions that help shape our society and our democracy, but I suggest to you today that institutions do not fail in a vacuum. Institutions are made up of people, individuals, and we’ve seen how the actions of a few can undermine the integrity of those institutions,” he said...........................


Read On and watch .....
 


YouTube partial cut of speech:


Notice how he nods his head down while looking forward......his usual signal that he's fibbing or not sincere


What's the Hidden Message Here ?

Him saying this makes you want to laugh out-loud maniacally for a while then start crying sad tears.



"And policies are driven by special interests rather than the national interests"..

That means you Monsanto! "protection act"

He couldn't have picked a better topic to talk about at a commencement? Why talk about your own issues when you're supposed to say something positive for the grads?

Sounds like he's talking about whistle blowers. Maybe it was a shot across the bow of those young men and women.

Or I would point out from military experience that it only takes a complete lack of leadership from one.

Obama should be giving this speech to the people under his administration and local law enforcement.

The man has a lot of nerve....

He isn't drifty, he is anxious and medicated. Did you catch that slurring? You do realize that Tuesday is going to be our next major scandal news day don't you? I anticipate a lot of breaking news from over the 3 day weekend.

But then again, I read that Obama is practicing not using a teleprompter. Watch his head go back and forth, how about that! No wonder he needed meds!

Just my story alone is juicy. I provided 100% proof that Carney was lying. The IRS was caught targeting on May 6, 2013! But do you want to hear something I find even more shocking than the actual IRS letter that I provided? Hardly anyone even cares! For Christs sake, it wanted to know what books they read! Does no one even care?

Translation: No matter what his administration does?

He is not responsible for anything EVER!.

For a guy whose mantra is 'better living through government' just pay no attention to when he grows government bigger, and more powerful, and flex's it's corruptness.

Your still better off!.

Priceless!.

Obama: "It Only Takes The Misconduct Of A Few ...."


Of course, the problem here is that there is far, far more than just a few misconducting in government. Moreover, as has become painfully obvious, no small amount of misconduct can be traced back to this administration and that it has taken to punishing those who blow the whistle on the same, makes the entire speech an exercise in blatant hypocrisy.

But, that all said... the statement is itself quite true.

Well, actually, the IRS was asking about the books they were selling, not reading. Apparently, this organization sells books as part of fund-raising. The IRS wanted to know if the books were political in nature. This is to make sure the organization is not a political organization hiding as a social welfare organization.

Given the audience I think it's a round-about way to also address the increasing number of sexual assualt stories rising from the military lately.

Or he's just being political because...Chicago-style politics and liberalism or some such nonsense.
