Look, I’m not going to play the political game here – I LOVE
Obama and even though I don’t agree with his recent decision on the Afghan War will continue to support him
– but seriously, giving your speech at a Military Academy?  I couldn’t have possibly kept myself
from commenting on how funny it is that almost your entire audience is dressed nearly IDENTICALLY.


How can you not compare this event to the 1984 stereotype?

For reference, the
