But for my final address
to this chamber,
I don’t want to just talk about next year.
I want to focus
on the next five years,
the next 10 years,
Got that right. Who would want to focus on the present with a past like his?
In the middle of it...his "final address," Obama says...
It says America will always act, alone if necessary, to protect our people and our allies; but on issues of global concern, we will mobilize the world to work with us...
leading us to this...
That’s our approach to conflicts like Syria, where we’re partnering with local forces and leading international efforts to help that broken society pursue a lasting peace.
making it sound more like we are simply organizing a bake sale to support the local police chapter respond to a neighborhood ruckus before things really get out of hand, before he adds this...
That’s why we built a global coalition, with sanctions and principled diplomacy, to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. And as we speak, Iran has rolled back its nuclear program, shipped out its uranium stockpile, and the world has avoided another war. (Applause.)
which is hilarious, considering he left out a couple of pertinent things....things like, and 'as we speak, Iran has rolled back its program, shipped out its uranium stockpile, and has gone on to test a missile or two, even while such actions go against the "global agreement" made only a few months back, and not only that -- has commandeered the capture of ten of our troops -- yes, as we speak, here, tonight -- and leaves me hanging this evening as to what the hell is going on while they hold our men (and one woman) hostage for the night in a place I like to call Tom Ayatollah Sawyer Island of Farsi. Who knows when they will be given back to us, surely by morning; but not to worry. I have a point to make and a legacy to fake.'
indeed. Now just for kicks, let's put side by side Iran's response to a Reagan Administration and Barack Obama's, shall we? Let's see who gets the stand down first. Our current Commandeer-In-Chief couldn't bend over any more if he tried; but of course, to admit to that, we would also have to agree there is evidence of a backbone to begin with -- but I digress. [btw, that's a great link there to American Thinker...don't miss the boat.]
Allow me to save us all some time.
The entire State of the Union was its usual propaganda puff piece, chock-full of lies and exaggerations, all while making a plethora of abusive ties to America's foundation -- the very principles and ideas to which this president defies and mocks, with great audacity and reckless abandon, mind you, in his every day to day to day... times seven years.
I am SO GLAD I didn't watch a lick of it!
[Including that SNL response that came right after, featuring Nikki Haley... SNL standing for Somebody's Not Listening...as in that somebody being the entire GOP Establishment.]
When will Republicans ever stop eating their own young, for pete's sake?!
All things considered, Trump is not America's enemy number one, okay.
Now, perhaps if we wanna go there for a moment, Hillary Clinton could be a good candidate of an Enemy of the State...little miss I never said anything about a video, yeah right. Liar, liar, pants suit on fire.
Here you are, Hill, ON VIDEO talking about a video, [fast forward to right around the half way mark]. And following your address to the families of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods at Andrews Air Force Base-- you spoke intimately and directly to the family members, and let me show you the quote from the diary of Charles Woods, Tyrone's father, recorded the moment. And then let's add this, from Breitbart in 2012, go here. And fast and furious forward to 2016, from The Daily Caller, Charles Woods repeated the memory, saying with a certain and consistent truth:
She said, ‘we’re going to have that person responsible for that video put in jail,'” he recalled, adding that Clinton’s comments “struck me as being very strange.”And they did, too. They put the guy in jail.
SEE HERE. See also The Benghazi Patsy story at Politico, here.
How Hillary -- and Obama -- can get away with such blatant manipulation of truth and dares, have no idea. Scratch that; for the real state of the union tells me so.
With the pathetically uneducated and misinformed being led by the unconscionable progressive body politic, left and right...and with such wanton betrayal -- the homeland is ripe for the taking; while the prevailing short-term memory issues that seem to run congruently with the loss of the critical thinking plays another key role and makes it all look oh so easy.
May we correct the direction America is leaning before we all fall down.
But in the meantime, one more line from a presidency reaching its end:
I told you earlier all the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air. Well, so is all the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. Let me tell you something. The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. (Applause.) Period. It’s not even close. It's not even close. (Applause.) It's not even close. We spend more on our military than the next eight nations combined. Our troops are the finest fighting force in the history of the world. (Applause.) No nation attacks us directly, or our allies, because they know that’s the path to ruin.Period...it's not even close...it's not even close.
Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office, and when it comes to every important international issue, people of the world do not look to Beijing or Moscow to lead -- they call us.(Applause.)
And for a moment there, you make it sound like America is pretty exceptional, Mr. President; it's as if you almost respect this beautiful country.
Oh my, how you personify fifty shades of grey, right on cue.
Make it a Good Day, G
