B.S. at West Point

Barack Obama gave a commencement speech at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, on Saturday, where he assured everyone that:

"The international order we seek is one that can resolve the challenges of our times," he said in prepared remarks. "Countering violent extremism and insurgency; stopping the spread of nuclear weapons and securing nuclear materials; combating a changing climate and sustaining global growth; helping countries feed themselves and care for their sick; preventing conflict and healing its wounds."

So he's distancing himself from Bush - era policies by engaging in empty rhetoric. That's quite a departure. Seeking "international order" -- whatever that means -- is not one of the constitutional duties of the President of the United States, Obama's delusional amendings notwithstanding. Notice, too, his context - free mentionings of "violent extremism" and "insurgency." Given that this president views terrorists as citizens, and citizens as terrorists, I draw no comfort from his vows of countering "extremism."

More from the empty suit: "combating a changing climate." Ha! I want to see that. How does one go about doing this? By enlisting the aid of Captain Planet, who poses by day as the mild - mannered Gaia Gore? "Global growth?" What in Sam Hill is he planning? Expansion of the Earth?

In Iraq, he said, the United States is "poised" to end its combat operations this summer, leaving behind "an Iraq that provides no safe haven to terrorists; a democratic Iraq that is sovereign, stable and self-reliant."

Yes, and I have some choice ocean - front property on the Sea of Tranquility that I'll sell you, lunar dirt - cheap. The man's lost in a haze of pipe dreams.

I doubt the Mulatto Messiah believes his own natterings. I expect little more from the Teleprompter - reader - in - chief.

Vacant words formed in a hollow soul.
