This was Obama’s first appearance in front of the group since the VA scandal broke in May 2014. The crowd came to life to honor fellow veterans, not Obama’s speech fell flat before the audience of thousands of military veterans who learned early on in their careers what the stench of political BS smells like. Some applause lines met with awkward silence while others earned only three seconds of feeble clapping from what a legionnaire reported was from “a small group of Obama’s admirers [who] sat near the front and tried to generate applause for him about 10 times.”
Weak Applause – Obama American Legion, Reno, NV – August 23, 2014
No editorializing today. Did too much of it yesterday.
Chrissy commented yesterday about Barky making an ass of himself in fromt of the American Legion.
Here’s the deal:
American Legion Gives Obama TEPID CLAPPING That Lasts ONLY A FEW SECONDS
This was his first appearance in front of the group since the VA scandal broke earlier this year. Obama blamed George W. Bush for the VA Scandal back in May
A Virginia legionnaire who served in the U.S. Marine Corps told MailOnline that ‘a small group of Obama’s admirers – and there are some here – sat near the front and tried to generate applause for him about 10 times.’
I guess he won’t be counting on the veteran vote in the next election……oh,wait.

15 Qassam Rockets intercepted At Once By The Iron Dome – Published Aug 26, 2014
The latest in a series of Israel-Hamas cease-fires began on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, at 7 pm local time.
More than half a dozen negotiated short-term cease-fires have been violated by Hamas & co., who the Israeli military says have fired 4,450 rockets at Israeli communities during the past 50 days.
Seventy of those rockets were launched in the countdown to the cease-fire. One early evening mortar attack killed two Israelis and injured four others. Yeah … nothing says “we want peace” like getting in some last minute killing, right?
As I post this, the cease-fire has held for twelve whole hours. My guess is that if it lasts more than a day or two, it’s because Hamas has run out of explosives to chuck at Israel and wants to play “let’s pretend we are willing to make peace” until they can re-arm.
It’s what they’ve done every OTHER time.
