The Weekend Was Tough, But... least I was distracted somewhat from politics. In particular the President giving the commencement speech at West Point.

Basically, what I heard was the President of the United States speaking to the West Point graduates on this jubilant day and telling them "You're not all that!"

From the transcipt -

"Simply put, American innovation must be the foundation of American power"

Yeah, see, not you guys. Not you cadets who just slaved through four years to become the best soldier you could.

"As we build these economic sources of our strength, the second thing we must do is build and integrate the capabilities that can advance our interests, and the common interests of human beings around the world"

See? You thought this day was about you. Nu''s another stump speech.
