He’s hoping using a speech someone wrote for him will make him look more presidential.

Once the speech is done the jackass can’t remember one word he said.

He just said he swore an oath to protect the Constitution. Excuse me while I throw-up!

He is now authorizing release of documents on Americans killed” because of the outlandish claims and to ensure transparency.”

OH, PUHLEEZ.

Now, snipers and Swat teams in one sentence? And he is going to uphold the constitution. Good Lord he is all over the place.

is it me or is he telling our “enemies” how/why/when etc. we target them-where there are the most/least casualties etc.

Why is he explaining all of this to us??...this is the most detailed explanation we’ve gotten on anything-—I only ask this because this speech is all over the place and tomorrow IS Friday after all...

Never seen POSHITUS so worked up and communicative

It almost seems like this speech is part of the chatter....something may be up...or going down...?

When all these scandals broke, some suggested to watch out for a 'red flag' event. Is this speech coded to trigger it?

Actually, I am beginning to wonder if Benghazi wasn’t friendly fire from an armed drone strike.

And those documents will be 100% redacted. But not too worry, Obama is transparent. The word is out.

I think this is the worst presidential speech I've heard. It's rambling, disconnected, and out of touch with reality.

I believe the idiot wrote it himself, unless a committee wrote it by each one doing a section without seeing any of the others...

He’s telling everything he can to make himself look important, caring, in charge, and oh so damn competent.

He’s no CIC.

To: onyx; All
I read yesterday what the crux of this speech is. He signed whatever document he wrote yesterday that says he won't use drones if there is any chance a civilian could be killed. He is essentially dumping drones because they might kill some of his Muslim friends.

Also, that document says he will only attack a terrorist if that terrorist is a threat right then to our country. In other words, he won't kill a terrorist just because he is a terrorist walking down the street. The terrorist has to be involved right then in an attack before he will attack him.

In totality, he isn't killing any Muslim, period.

Listening to this guy, he doesn’t know what he’s doing...Now he wants a COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY ON TERRORISM.

"Doing nothing is not an option" against terrorism, he said.

He didn't believe this during Benghazi!

So, he has ended the war on terrorism? Don’t think so. He has just moved it to the US against Conservatives and Fox where he and his admin. are now the terrorists. He can’t afford to spend any more money overseas when he needs the ammo here.
