#1 Adding insult to injury?

#2 I think he tries too hard to fit in the black community, since he is not fully black African-American himself.

#3 "I've come to bury Caesar, not to praise him."

And then Mark Antony goes on to do just that.

In this case "Obama Mentions Self 45 Times During Memorial Speech For Dallas Officers" per Drudge.

Proverbs 6:16-19King James Version (KJV)

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

ZF, how about some lyrics matching the old Billy Joel tune 'We Didn't Start the Fire' to 'We started the Fire'.

#5 My bad, sorry.

That was supposed to be a quote of AlmostAnon's last sentence striking out the "black African-" part.

Don't know what happened.

#6 I'm surprised Obama didn't say the increased unrest and number of police killings during his presidency were Bush's fault.

#7 JohnQC Former President George Bush gave a real speech honoring the fallen at the memorial service. To me it was a stunning comparison between the two - Bush was resolute and compassionate to the family, Obama made an attempt to memorialize and then launched into a political pontification that demonstrated his smallness.

Mr. Bush spoke directly and truely to the family, their loss was not fair, we all do not share equally in their loss, this was a memorial for their fallen and their sacrifice. A sacrifice for the love of their brothers and sisters in blue, and the price they pay for their servant leadership.

#8 Also notable was the rabbi and the gal singing.

W was excellent. Would have watched the whole thing if that kitchen gnome hadn't thrown salt in my eyes.

Barry....I wanted him to do well here...then I saw him haunching over himself, elbows on I was watching the opening to Grand Torino.

Really everyone showed a dynamic personality except Barry. He is just so....uninteresting. I ad-libbed his speech as he talked nearly point by point, so uninteresting.

#9 "The malignancy of Barack Obama‚Äôs narcissism was on full display yesterday at the memorial service for five ambushed Dallas Police officers. His address bore all the markers of his cunning self-absorption."

#10 When are you people gonna learn? He's full of shit. Knowing this, you should know that whenever you watch that guy he's only gonna piss you off. So don't watch him. If I was a mourner I would have skipped this ceremony. I couldn't take it.

#11 "We ask police to do too much and we ask too little of ourselves"

'So today by executive decree, with the advisory council of UNDSS and under the charter of the Host Country Affairs Section of the United States Mission to the United Nations, I am establishing a National Police Force.'
