From a report at the link below:
President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion's convention-goers.
His 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House's policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry despite pausing several times in hope of an ovation.
Below Republican US Senator Richard Burr gives the president a dagger stare.
Some applause lines met with awkward silence while others earned only three seconds of feeble clapping
One attendee reported that a small group of Obama's admirers sat near the front and tried to generate applause for him about 10 times.
Obama spoke for nearly 8 minutes without a single applause line. Veterans reaction to the speech by the president was subdued and barely polite.
The president wants regain the veterans trust after six years of alienating them.
