I agree, but he is pushing the terrorism plot pretty hard.

Odd, ‘cause they haven’t before. Likely to be a false flag event...

Memorial Weekend no less. Remember all those who died to give you freedom....

“Nothing new.”

Yes, it is new. He isn’t going to kill a Muslim terrorist again unless that Muslim is in the act of committing terrorism right then. Not using drones again because they might kill an innocent Muslim as collateral damage.

This is a “save the Muslims” even if they are terrorists, speech.

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

Nixon did that too, as his administration was crumbling.

Cuz, I am just like you......no job, not interested in a job and I just watch tv. I am a low information president.

As the speech has gone on Barry’s tone has become desperate whining, and imploring with the subtext implication “Why can’t I get you folks to believe me?”

I suspect that a the polling of his anti-war, anti-military base is really terrible on drones and he needs them to fight of impending impeachable scandals and international accusations that he is a war criminal for “signature strikes” against unidentified suspicious persons outside any war zone or not engaged in any “imminent” war activity.

Terrorism inside our borders, then launches into the balance crap which carney feeds us about the first amendment. This sounds to me more like a veiled attack on domestic terrorism, aka Tea Partiers.

Not a bad guess - somebody at the White House is running numbers for sure and doesn't like what he sees.
