Obama’s Careful Phrasing Conceals Disasters

Obama's State of the Union address touted an American return to world leadership, but concealed the failure of Obama's policies, especially in the Middle East.
Barack Obama state of the union

The same applies to his standard sentence on keeping all options open regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

From the coalitions we’ve built to secure nuclear materials, to the missions we’ve led against hunger and disease, from the blows we’ve dealt our enemies, to the enduring power of our moral example, America is back. Anyone who tells you otherwise, anyone who tells you that America is in decline or that our influence has waned, doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Think about the kind of mental construct that could produce this paragraph, which is unintentionally revealing. It shows Obama’s pattern of either refusing to acknowledge legitimate dissent (all the experts agree with me) and that he knows best (Israel doesn’t know what’s good for itself).

Yes, Mr. President, a lot of people around the world don’t think that America is back or that it still protects their back. And they do know what they are talking about and can cite many specific examples from your administration.

The next paragraph requires no comment from me. See if you can finish it and not be laughing:

That’s why, working with our military leaders, I’ve proposed a new defense strategy that ensures we maintain the finest military in the world, while saving nearly half a trillion dollars in our budget.Not budget cuts to the military but “saving” money. So that it can be spent on green energy projects?

    nothing like praising oneself and will probably tell the military, to love one another, like he tells us homosexual behaviour is okay. Wonder why his fingers are so long?

  2. I am sure that our president is the "Chamberlain" appeaser of our century.His appointments of Hagel and Kerry are solid proof of this. I believe his agenda may be much worse as he weakens our military, and wants to negotiate with an enemy sworn to destroy us,"the Great Satan. The American people may have voted for the destruction of there own nation, as we know it."
