West Point Cadets During Obama Appearance – Meh

According to a Daily Mail report, less than a quarter of West Point cadets in attendance for President Obama’s commencement speech stood and gave him a standing ovation.

Via the Washington Times (h/t Gateway Pundit):

President Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported.

“Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported.

In their defense, it’s likely hard to get ramped up for a guy who believes the future of the military is in fighting global warming.  Army grads must have been slightly confused to hear that all of their hard work at West Point would translate to this:

That spirit of cooperation must energize the global effort to combat climate change – a creeping national security crisis that will help shape your time in uniform.”

Nice Deb has video clips of President Obama and former President Bush and their contrasting receptions at West Point.

While Obama couldn’t even get one in four cadets to show appreciation for their Commander-in-Chief, Bush was given this reception…

Obama’s reception was so bad that a CNN correspondent described it as “icy.”
