Speaking of literal criticism, this one was pretty witty:

We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.
And so the question is not a game of Battleship where we’re counting ships. It’s — it’s what are our capabilities.
I thought it was a funny line that came off poorly. Based on twitter reaction...his loyal base liked it, everyone else thought it came off arrogant and superior. That's not surprising I guess, but even the conservatives or moderates that would normally at least recognize a good line from Obama seemed put off by it.
I said that in jest, but look at the comments to the video:
"dammnnnnnnnnnn racism at its FINEST"
"Oh we all know what you mean..... HE'S BLACK!!! It's as simple as that"
"She probably meant ------."
"Stupid racist lady"
They should define racism for us.
Would have it have been smarter for the lady to at least say something like:
It is the Communists’ intention to make people think that personal success is somehow achieved at the expense of others and that every successful man has hurt somebody by becoming successful?
It is the Communists’ aim to discourage all personal effort and to drive men into a hopeless, dispirited, gray herd of robots who have lost all personal ambition, who are easy to rule, willing to obey and willing to exist in selfless servitude to the State?
or even simply put:
Obama believes that man is the rightless slave of the state?
