Barack Obama’s deeply demoralizing “You didn’t build that” commencement speech at Howard.

The Post Turtle* President Speaks   "One wishes that after seven-plus years of demoralizing, ugly, incompetent and divisive leadership, there would be at long last something one might find in Barack Obama that an average American could make peace with.


"But in one of the latter speeches of his presidential tenure, a commencement address at historically black Howard University over the weekend, Obama showed himself incapable either of uniting the country he’s misgoverned since January of 2009 or even giving its citizens reasons to believe they can improve their own stations.
"According to Obama’s Howard speech things are terrific — both in comparison to when he took office and also in comparison to the time of a far more successful president than he.
"Obama opened the speech by warning that he was going to give what he called a “hot take,” and then suggested that the country is in every way better than it was “when I was in college,” and picked 1983, the year Ronald Reagan’s presidency took off as well as the year Obama graduated from Columbia, as his benchmark." . . .
"Post turtle". Insert the name of your chosen politician into the story. 
* . . .While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama.
The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a post turtle'. Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was. The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.
The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb *** put him up there.'
