Obama Says U.S. Lacks Leadership in Commencement Speeches

Obama Says U.S. Lacks Leadership on Virus in Commencement Speeches ...

 

 

“Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy — that’s how little kids think,” he said during a prime time special for high school seniors. “Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs, still think that way — which is why things are so screwed up."

 

Ouch.

Without the springtime rituals of traditional graduation ceremonies, former President Barack Obama delivered two virtual commencement addresses on Saturday, urging millions of high school and college graduates to fearlessly carve a path and “to seize the initiative” at a time when he says the nation’s leaders have fumbled the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” Mr. Obama said in his first address, directed at graduates of historically black colleges and universities. “A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge.”

In speeches that spoke to social inequities, Mr. Obama said the pandemic was a wake-up call for young adults, showing them the importance of good leadership and that “the old ways of doing things just don’t work.”

“Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy — that’s how little kids think,” he said during a prime time special for high school seniors. “Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs, still think that way — which is why things are so screwed up. I hope that instead, you decide to ground yourself in values that last, like honesty, hard work, responsibility, fairness, generosity, respect for others.”

Mr. Obama’s comments were one of his few public addresses to a national audience during the outbreak, and he said a leadership void had created a clear mandate for the graduates: “If the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you,” he said.

Drvoke - you're in charge.  I'm in charge.  The citizens are in charge.  We always were.  There is no leadership in a constitutional republic.  Only the wisdom of the citizenry.

You actually think that Obama -- or any ex president -- actually needs to start a business to support himself?

All an ex president has to be is to buy a fancy house, live in it for a year of so and sell it for  many times whet he paid for it.

Richard Nixon hip hopped all over the Jersey suburbs and NYC, buying and selling apartments and houses.

Gerald Ford did the same in Palm Springs.

George McGovern made a killing when he sold his home in DC, and he was not even president.

Real estate purchases and resales are legal free money for any ex president, and probably any losing nominee as well.

 

Obama knows how to be an effective president. Trump knows how to PRETEND to be smart and important, by hiring asskissers, brownnosers and sycophants.

Reality has eluded you long ago. I know this because I see you and so many others repeat almost word for words used by Fox News and hate radio nicks as they were brainwashing you. You repeat those phrases as if they were your own original ideas. You don't impress anyone.

Real estate and the famous.

Buy for one million and sell for two million.  Almost 0 work involved.  Do it every year.

What a nice gig !!

How do I get into a game like that ??                                  🍺

Become a celebrity, then find a good real estate agent in wealthy communities.

There is an overabundance of very wealthy fools who want to live in an ex-president's house. Boring people with lots of money who hope that prestige and fame will rub off on them.

A movie star's house would also do.

Me as a politician ?   No, I guess not.

Movies and TV ?        No, I guess not.

Wait a minute, I got something.  Me, Jesse James, Cole Younger, and Pike Bishop(The Wild Bunch)

know how to rob banks!!   And we are damn good at our chosen profession!!           

Does that count for anything?                       🤠..🍺

That would be nice, if it was accurate.

 

For many decades, or longer, the Federal government has grown to such an all encompassing extent - it's usurped state and local powers. The Federal government was never meant to have all of the power it presently does - power was suppose to be more local (state). The greed for power has created todays monstrosity, and all the problems that goes with it.

Plenty of high populations density places that came nowhere near what NY and NJ did in terms of infections and deaths. 

 

Care to try again? I mean we have Health Dept officials threatening to resign, aides warning De Blasio and Cuomo and well, they did their own thing.

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.


  • By teacher

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me. 


  • By teacher

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    Some few days before the next election Mr. Fools is gonna pin my horse thread. it's gonna be horrible, I shall endevour every day to bring some some fresh. 

     

    I still own this cat box.


  • By teacher

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."


  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 


  • Where’s all the hot bitches? 


  • By teacher

    Kidding me? 


  • By nuckin futz

    How do I get rid of this chatroom box?


  • By nuckin futz

    How do I get rid of this chatroom box?


  • By nuckin futz

    Get me out of Chatbox!


  • By jefftec

    The chatbox stays expanded and is a nuisance blocking screen images. What setting is there to control/collapse chatbox?


  • By kfools

    Just click the no holds barred to collapse it.


  • By XavierOnassis

    diddle dee dee


  • By teacher

    Like Jesse Ventura said to all that would not take a chew in the movie "Predator." LF.org is a political debate forum. This chatbox just ups the opportunity to go at it. Ya'll have your political views, seems to me that ya'll should have thought these things out and be ready to battle. 


  • By teacher

    Is real time political debate a thing ya'll hide from? What do you morons do if you happen to run into some one with opposing political views on the street? 


  • By teacher

    I've never ran into anyone, in real life,  that said Obama lied. I run into folks that tell me Trump lies. I'm at work. I didn't bring it up. I don't reply, I'm representing a company. Not my place. 


  • By teacher

    Lookie there, all I have to do is get out and come back. Why is it that liberals, when they have a company man before them decide they that is the time they go off? Why would ya'll put a company man into that position? 


  • By teacher

    Chatbox is mine.
