Think back to your days of playground or sandlot baseball or softball. One constant was the kid always making excuses for dropping a fly ball.
"The sun was in my eyes!" was the ball yard equivalent of the weak explanation offered to generations of teachers: "My dog ate my homework."
In other words, "B.S."
Today, delivering and address in Germany before a few thousand invited guests, President Barack Obama delivered a mostly forgettable speech.
Of course, Obama sycophant Chris Matthews has an explanation for his Holy Tingleness' weak showing: "The sun was in his Teleprompter." (What? The most-gifted political speaker to occupy the White House can't speak without a Teleprompter?! Banish the thought!)
Here's Matthews making the excuse:
If it weren't so predictable...and tedious...and idiotic...it would be silly.
Bonus: According to The Weekly Standard, "Last time around, when Obama delivered a speech in Berlin in the 2008 presidential campaign, when he was still a senator, 200,000 folks came out to see him. The pool reporter says only 4,500 were present for Obama's speech [today]." Plus, this time he spoke from behind bulletproof glass. Times change!
