Compare and contrast: Videos show reception received by Obama versus Bush at West Point

obama-bushBy now, pretty much everyone knows of the pitiful reception Barack Obama received when he spoke to graduating cadets at West Point.

The Washington Times, citing the Daily Mail, said that less than 25 percent of the cadets present gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction.  In 2008, however, George Bush received a standing ovation so thunderous he had to ask cadets to be seated.

Here’s video of the two presidents, starting with Barack Obama:
