This guy says you’ve gotten soft.
Can you believe this guy? He enacts ruinous policy after ruinous policy and he blames America for getting “soft.”

Interesting perspective. I wonder where America could have lost its competitive edge. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with a government that blows billions on green energy boondoggles while making it harder to drill for oil while trying to make electricity rates “skyrocket.” It couldn’t have to do with extending unemployment benefits to 99 weeks (and rising), or to bailouts or…
Seriously, in 2008 we elected a community organizer, state senator, college instructor first term senator over a guy who spent five years in a Vietnamese prison. And now he’s lecturing us about how America’s gone “soft”? Really?
I can’t help but think of Jimmy Carter’s Malaise speech which has gone down as one of the more “tone deaf” speeches by an American President. Methinks this comment may be seen again during the 2012 campaign.

I just returned from another morning spent at Walter Reed hospital where I saw soldier after soldier who was maimed during service to his/her country. And you know what–they were smiling. They were pushing forward with the new reality of their lives. They were anything but soft. The only Americans who are soft are the ones who never think about serving. Instead, they stand there with their hands out waiting for the nanny state to take care of them.

Report this rumor that the President thinks "We've gone soft" to Attackwatch at once. I'm sure there's a federal grant in there somewhere in the budget to fix this.

Some of the things he says do not even deserve acknowledgment – much less a dignified response. His thoughts and words fall in the same category as Pelosi, Reid and Water's mental excretions – totally devoid of truth, rationality and even sanity. Why people still take them seriously escapes me.

Yup. Malaise speech is precisely what I thought of when I heard this stuttering clusterfark of a miserable failure. Unreal. 14 more months of this. Assuming he doesn't suspend elections.

Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’.
Dontcha know… it's your own @^%$# fault Amerika is going to hell in a handbasket; if ya'll weren't so soft we could get there faster! Jeez lousie you people are so hard to govern, if only Teh One could bypass congress… it would be so much easier. Then his majesty could willy nilly assassinate U.S. citizens without the burden of a pesky trial (yoohoo…calling Mark Shea).
