imageSome folk have been asking why Canada Free Press (CFP) didn’t cover President Barack Obama’s Tuesday night speech at West Point Military Academy.

CFP was tuned in on the speech through Mark Levin’s syndicated radio show.

Our coverage of the speech is as follows:

“I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”.

Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me.

(That’s the 44 times Obama referred to “I” and Me in the address where military men and women were asked to show enthusiasm before he spoke.)

Enthusiasm can only be naturally welled up and not ordered.


Results:

Where does Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal stand after delivery of the West Point speech: Up the proverbial creek without a paddle and 30,000-40,000 troops less than requested.

Where do the courageous, all-volunteer U.S. troops stand after the West Point speech: marginalized and insulted.

Where does the enemy stand after delivery of the Obama West Point Speech: In full benefit of intelligence writ large, right from the proverbial horse’s mouth: American troops will be withdrawn from Afghanistan beginning July, 2011.

The enemy benefitting from the free intelligence is the one that Obama pronounces as the “Tally-ban”, and not the U.S. Military West Point Academy referred to as “the enemy” by Chris Matthews of MSNBC, who apologized the next day.

Where does that leave President Barack Obama: Three months of dithering followed by more dithering.
