I ran across this, wanting the official retirement speech.

This is simply hilarious.

You have to take this as the spoof it is.

If only.......

Nice. It might be hilarious but the underlying fact is....

...It's a lot nearer to the bone than many may realise!

On a sidenote, he provided a good video but could've sync'ed the voice better.

To really get it, you have to watch the film "Patton - Lust for Glory".

The movie Patton with George C. Scott had the speech the video was taken from.
The mindless ramblings they dubbed over it was what really numbed my brain.

I respect Pattons military expertise, but not his social skills and political views. And some other mindless yo yo dubbing his own over the footage was beyond pathetic.
