Skip to comments.In Obama’s speech, echoes of JFK (No, he's serious!)

With his speech tonight, President Obama placed himself in a great tradition of American presidents who have understood Americas special role in the world. He thoroughly rejected the so-called realist approach, extolled American exceptionalism, spoke of universal values and insisted that American power should be used, when appropriate, on behalf of those values. I was particularly pleased to see him place Libya in the context of the Arab Spring. This is the part of the equation that the self-described realists have missed....

So we’re going into Vietnam again?
Yeah, but instead of getting jiggy with Marilyn Monroe, Obamsky like her brother...
Or the Bay of Pigs? Is Eric Holder his J. Edgar Hoover?
For the Left, Kennedy and Obama are living gods. Mere humans pale in comparison to their brilliance and majesty. We do not really deserve to be led by men of such magnificence.
Obama is a dumb ass.
He is a joke on the nation.
Prove me otherwise.
Dollar to a doughnut he was a c- affirmative action graduate, if that.
America is in the process of getting an “Obamarectimy” and this fool is in a drug induced stupor with images of Kennedy.
Mad I tell you, they are all mad.
He uses the term 'so-called realist' again in the excerpt.
Obama is now above reality.
I wish I knew how to post the little smiley who's puking his guts out.
Now the media will extol what a leader he is. How he is saving innocent lives and promoting democracy. All day long the media, including FOX have been breathlessly reporting torture and atrocities. The truth is we don't know who did it to who. Not really. AlQaeda has been known to be as brutal as Kadhaffi.
Kagan’s lips are vapor-locked to Zero’s posteriors again.
“In Obamas speech, echoes of JFK”
Must have been his snoaring rhetoric.
the mind boggles in the first few words...the semen dripping from this guy's chin is revolting.
Mega-Giant-Ultra-Giganto HURL ALERT!
Obama had better hope Iran is complicit in the rebel cause, because if they aren’t, Iran will be convinced the entire rebel campaign throughout the mideast has been orchestrated by the US and the west.
Obama and crew might be good as liars to the West, but they don’t fool the people at the bottom who are being demonized along with groups Obama is attacking.
If they aren’t complicit, they will have a moral imperative to always consider anything spoken by the West as a lie. Where more sane heads may have prevailed in the past, if they are not complicit, they are likely to vow unabashedly to strike irreversibly with proper prior planning at the West.
They now know he will irrevocably commit himself to causes completely antithetical to the moral convictions he ascribes to defend. If the Congress, Constitution, Supreme Court, and Pentagon don’t hold him accountable, nor the international bodies or foreign nations, they will fall back to a simple moral defense mechanism, never accepting anything he promises or pretends to offer.
He is a motivational speaker. He is doing a good job of creating enemies to the death, where negotiations will not be considered in any future situation by friend or foe to his position.
Now is a good time to watch and document who abets his cause.
A rather sad echo of Camelot with Obama playing the part of the Pixie King.
$3.50 gas, starting a whole new war on the basis of U.N. approval, chronic unemployment, Wall Street bailout, Obamacare, DADT repeal, DREAM Act, suing Arizona, Pigford reparations scam, coddling the New Black Panthers, Supreme Court picks on the basis of “diversity” ...
I don’t listen to anything this man says anymore. He is not my president.
