Obama On Schwarzkopf: ‘We’ve Lost An American Original’
IGOR BOBIC 7:57 AM EST, FRIDAY DECEMBER 28, 2012
President Obama issued the following statement praising U.S. General Norman Schwarzkopf after reports of his death on Thursday night:
With the passing of General Norman Schwarzkopf, we've lost an American original. From his decorated service in Vietnam to the historic liberation of Kuwait and his leadership of United States Central Command, General Schwarzkopf stood tall for the country and Army he loved. Our prayers are with the Schwarzkopf family, who tonight can know that his legacy will endure in a nation that is more secure because of his patriotic service.

It was the most juvenile, boring speech I ever heard. "be a winner...win...win...win"
I was shocked. There was no there...there

5. It seems they only survive if they don't rock the boat.
I would bet money that Obama is saying one thing and thinking another.
Don't rock the boat. That's why nothing good happens in Wash.
