Fist Bumps for World Peace!

It had to be one of the strangest Naval Academy commencement ceremonies ever. Former GOP presidential candidate John McCain and his wife Cindy were in attendance for their son's graduation:
Obama spoke before a graduating class of 1,036 that included John Sidney McCain IV - son of Obama's rival in the 2008 presidential race, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), and fourth in a line of McCain Naval Academy graduates. About 30,000 attended the ceremony in Annapolis, Md.

"President Barack Obama fistbumps a graduating Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy graduation ceremony in Annapolis, Md., Friday, May 22, 2009" (Source).

And here's Obama comments on American "straying" from our values:

"When America strays from our values, it not only undermines the rule of law, it alienates us from our allies, it energizes our adversaries and it endangers our national security and the lives of our troops."

But hey, if fist bumps are good enough for Hugo Chavez, they're good enough for our naval midshipmen!

"Fist Bumps"! GADS! That's so utterly undignified! *sigh*

Obama talking about America straying from it's values is like a bear telling other animals not to poop in the woods. It doesn't make any sense whatsoever!

Gotta be fist bumps with "The One!"

I have literally reached the point where I cannot even gaze upon pictures of Obama, much less suffer through a video with him in it.

What this colossal fraud of a POTUS is currently doing to this country is beyond criminal, and damned sad, too.

I saw that hideous pic of Obama hugging the spawn of John McRino earlier on Drudge.

How disgusting.

"I loved this stuff when it was GWB."

LOL-That is because GWB wasn't shaking their hands while simultaneously stabbing them in the back.
