President Obama’s Christmas Themed Military Joke Fails Miserably

Sometimes you just have to feel for the guy.

President Obama seems to give his best speeches before crowds of adoring fans, but he always seems to fall flat when the crowd is not so receptive. We got more evidence of this interesting speech problem when President Obama spoke to a crowd of military men and women in New Jersey on Monday.

He was probably hoping for laugh and applause breaks during this joke… but it just NEVER came.

“Every year, you never stop serving. You never stop giving. You guys are like Santa in fatigues. Although, I’ll bet one of those C-130s is a little more efficient than Santa’s sleigh… I figured I’d get something out of our guys on that…”


Ouch. Like I said, sometimes you just have to feel for the guy.
