(CNN) - It was another eventful Sunday, beginning with an early-morning wake-up call for the traveling President Obama.

As if his first overseas trip wasn't busy enough already, North Korea reminded Obama that presidents don't always get to pick their challenges.

It added to the drama of an already big day. In a speech in Prague, Czech Republic, scripted to outline an ambitious goal to rid the world of nuclear weapons, the president added condemnation of North Korea's rocket launch and a call for quick international action.

Some highlights:

    President Teleprompter is an embarassment, complete disaster trip to Europe. Give Obama a teleprompter, he's articulate, let him talk without it, he fumbles.

    John King is a tv personality/journalist. What he says about the President or any other government official is of little consequence

    North Korea will be getting a very nasty letter from us and we will be sending Hillary to apologize for all the problems we have caused them.
    North Korea will then know we are serious. They will then expect Obama to come and tell them how we have acted arrogantly toward them. Hey folks, its time for a change.

  7. Liberals, Huh! What are they good for? Absolutely nothing!

    Yes, that's smart. Let's get rid of our nuclear weapons right as NK is developing balistic missiles to mate with the nuclear warheads they made with the nuclear material Bill Clinton gave them.

    This idea missed the "Bright Idea Book"'s publishing.

    Obama has backed himself into a corner. For the past two years, he has done nothing except criticize the arrogant behavior of the previous administration.

    Now, the entire world knows Obama is not going to do anything to stop an aggressive nation.

    If I was North Koreans leader, or Iran’s leader, or Al Qaeda’s leader I would be laughing every time Obama tried to make a tough comment.

    It’s almost laughable, everyone knows Obama will not do anything.
