O-bomb-a: President jokes troops are like “Santa in fatigues,” no one laughs [VIDEO]

Our Comedian-in-Chief delivered a stilted, awkward address to troops at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey thanking them for their service and giving all year ’round.

Attempting to warm up the proceedings, he “joked” that our warriors are like “Santa in fatigues” which was met with complete silence by the crowd. Way to go, Mr. President.

However, in best Joe Biden style, Obama attempted a rim shot to warm up the crowd saying “I bet one of those C-130’s is a little more efficient than Santa’s sleigh.”

Ha. Ha. Ha. Stick to your day job, sir. Um, on second thought…

Why does Obama even bother with the photo op speeches in front of the troops? They all know he is a phoney, an amateur, and really doesn’t give a damn about them. He also has to know that they feel that way.

Which leads me to believe that this is a carefully orchestrated ploy to divide the democratic party further on purpose. Follow along- no more teleprompter, on purpose. No eloquent speeches, on purpose. Bumbled phrases, on purpose. Things to really anger us, on purpose. Hillary steps up for 2016, but they associate her with him. In waltzes Elizabeth Warren…….
Think about it.

This shows what a pathetic speaker his is without a teleprompter displaying words written for him by others. How can anyone think he’s an eloquent and brilliant orator?

I thought the same when he lacked a teleprompter and said, “Don’t throw stones in glass houses” was from the Bible. Yet he can quote verse from the Koran.

What I wouldn’t give to hear a President say, ” I know what it’s like to miss birthdays, anniversaries, the holidays. I have deployed. I have been there. All I can say is… Thank you.”

Hint Hint, LTC West.

I recall watching Colonel West being interviewed by some progressive POS who told him that, if he were POTUS, he could not spend Xmas with deployed personnel. Colonel West said not only would he do so but no one could stop him. The Progressive POS said he couldnt do that because it might offend the ragheads.

Seems like the hatted President George W. Bush did just that on Thanksgiving 2003 serving the troops turkey and visited our troops other times during his Term as POTUS

I second that “Hint, Hint, LTC West”. I would be proud to serve under West. Heck…. as an American, I would be proud to call him MY PRESIDENT.

Notice how lately he’s been sticking his bottom lip out to act like Bill Clinton ? What a loser …….

Bill Clinton had plenty of problems. But unlike hussein the dog eater Bill Clinton actually likes people.

He thinks sticking his lower lip out, jutting his chin out and looking down his nose at everyone can fool us into thinking he’s an “adult” and not just a stupid elitist man-child.

How I would hate having someone close to me serving while this person is president.

If he tries to declare Martial Law at some point maybe out troops with side with the people. He certainly has decimated our Armed Services.

Its their DUTY TO DEFEND THE PEOPLE AGAINST A TYRANNICAL POTUS

Pam

That has already been debated by Mr West. It is a iffy subject because he is the Commander in Chief of all Armed Services.

Camotim

Its not a maybe. And another group who will not side with him, but rather with the people, are local law enforcement. They know about Darren WIlson.

I am retired law enforcement. I know for a fact that LE here will protect the people

this is the longest six years I have ever experienced…the next two years will be at least 1,000 years long

I did a hitch in the Army followed by 30 yrs in LE. He will not try to declare Martial Law in the entire country but he has done irrepairable damage to the country. I do pray that a true, honest candidate steps forward to lead this country back to where we were when his fool took over. I got your back.

Such a hypocrite….stand on stage and talk about how many sacrifices we make (I say ‘we’ because I am about to finish my 25th year active duty) and then sign the law that will cut our pay and benefits…cannot wait until 2016

Obama’s plan is to replace our military with ”volunteers” from Mexico and Central America…..wait for it.
