The Chirp Of Crickets

Last night, our Commander in Chief delivered his address to the nation, on our new strategy on Afghanistan. I will not delve into the details of it, nor what I personally think of it at this moment. I just noticed the peculiar silence coming from his captive live audience.

As the German publication Der Spiegel reports:

Just minutes before the president took the stage inside Eisenhower Hall, the gathered cadets were asked to respond "enthusiastically" to the speech. But it didn't help: The soldiers' reception was cool.

Maybe the academic rigors, had the corps of cadets focused on their immediate studies?

Or could it just be that Obama was just plain boring?
