My airstrikes abroad are nothing more than practice for HERE (fantasy 0bama quote) LOL!
He has moved the war on terror here so he can keep a better eye on it. :)
Personally, I can’t imagine watching this crap—and adding to his ratings.
I’ve had one heart attack already-—don’t want to make it 2-—LOL!
Did he really say that?
agree this speech was about an hour and it was just rambling until he got to Gitmo which he knows it will not happen and it seems he wants the headlines changing to get the investigations off the TV and then make the GOP the enemy again.
The left needs an enemy so their cult can look the other way and point blame
< It will be interesting to look closely at the phrasing of this speech. >
My thought also. Someone needs to do a speech analysis between this and hitler’s late 1930s rhetoric. Seriously. Keep in mind that sociopaths use projection a lot. If they say one thing or accuse someone of a certain behavior or thought, then you should be ready for the thought/behavior from them themselves.
This plant added to the theater and assisted Obama in transitioning to a more passionate, ‘seemingly’ natural closing. All faux, all the time.
Yesterday, the greatest threat we faced was not the terrorists, it was our own federal government..... today remains the same.
I think the main theme is close gitmo capture prisoners....so what do we do with them when we capture them? Give them all our rights here in this country....is this just another part of the immigration reform bill?
at 2.00pm I turned the TV on, we watched a program and came back and he was still there and so I watched it for about 20 minutes and it was the most insane speech I have heard.
do you have a link to that new order?
page 261 in his book in his own words.
Exactly. This fool does not realize the hunger strikes are happening to embarrass and manipulate the United States. Obama actually believes they are striking because they want to be in Illinois! Stupid.
It’s a fantasy quote, but I truly believe 0bama’s drone strikes abroad are practice for here. It is totally out of character for 0bama to be aggressive on terrorism in this manner.
Agreed. Great points.
This speech was clearly to defend himself against the scandals plaguing him!
The shouting woman is a plant. If she asked about Benghazi or the IRS, she would have been thrown out in a second. This was to PROVE what he doesn’t believe in; the First Amendment and what he is doing to the press and James Rosen! Theatrical galore!
He used this to defend himself against all pending scandals.
Here’s the proof: when he was “conveniently” interrupted for the last time, he said that he has to go “off script” and then after a couple of words he carried on from TOTUS about what he wants America to be 10-20 years from now: a bustling street...blah blah blah and last, the clincher read from TOTUS; a woman to “shout, talk to, etc.” to a president!
That was ON THE TOTUS TEXT, no doubt in my mind.
I heard the whole thing and nothing in it was for America. It was all about me me me, as usual from the juvenile 0b0z0.
Heh heh heh...
This man (loosely speaking) sounds like a monarch without a parliament.
I didn’t watch and it is that obvious to me. Released the story about Americans being killed so he can rush out and give this speech. He is the most cynical politician I have ever seen. Gets harder eveyday not to hate the man.
I used to think this was a tongue-in-cheek light-hearted poke at Obama....but I am beginning to wonder. Maybe the interrupter jumped in when they realized he wouldn't finish in time?? OK, maybe that's a little crazy
Sounds like a desperate man surrounded by scandal and he knows it’s falling down all around him.
Add the implanted liberal heckler— he tries to comfort her and act like he agrees with her— in an attempt to get the radical left to circle the wagons for him.
Didn’t her voice sound like that Jody or whatever her name is chick from code pink? If so his calling her “young lady” was way off base.
This is also a speech intended for his leftist supporters. Polling must be very bad for him right now.
We were spared from having to listen to him. City electricity went out for 2 hours.

I couldn’t hear the heckler. What was she screaming about?
I only caught part of it. How long did he drag that rambling speech out for?
Nobody wants him there. Just another campaign stop.
By the time he arrives they will have cleaned up and he will take credit for it.
Unlike NJ were they have waited and waited for him to help them, it is not cleaned up and he got credit for cleaning it up?
Mainly Gitmo and hunger strike.
That would be Obama bundler Jody Evans who rushed Palin on the stage, and then was honnored by Obama by having a fundraiser,attended by Obama, at her house......And Candy's Numb News (CNN) made no criticism.
I thought that too.
Isn't that...like...the 1st Amendment you moron?
I have always thought it was way our off his character as well.
Unlike NJ, Okies can think and do for themselves. I would love for no one to show up to his photo op.
Where is the eloquence of a Washington, an Adams, a Jefferson, or even of a Reagan?
The very nature of the "miracle at Philadelphia" was one of passionate defense of liberty for future generations, selflessness in the face of danger to the personal life and property of the participants, and of a greater interest in the lives and liberties of countrymen than in the careers of themselves.
Oh that Divine Providence would send such leaders for this critical moment in America's history!
Perhaps the President and all elected leaders in Washington today might consider Jefferson's description of how he and his contemporaries in the early days approached matters of interest for the new nation:
"Sitting near me on some occasion of a trifling but wordy debate, he asked how I could sit in silence hearing so much false reasoning which a word should refute? I observed to him that to refute indeed was easy, but to silence impossible. That in measures brought forward by myself, I took the laboring oar, as was incumbent on me; but that in general I was willing to listen. If every sound argument or objection was used by some one or other of the numerous debaters, it was enough: if not, I thought it sufficient to suggest the omission, without going into a repetition of what had been already said by others. That this was a waste and abuse of the time and patience of the house which could not be justified. And I believe that if the members of deliberative bodies were to observe this course generally, they would do in a day what takes them a week, and it is really more questionable, than may at first be thought, whether Bonaparte's dumb legislature which said nothing and did much, may not be preferable to one which talks much and does nothing. I served with General Washington in the legislature of Virginia before the revolution, and, during it, with Dr. Franklin in Congress. I never heard either of them speak ten minutes at a time, nor to any but the main point which was to decide the question. They laid their shoulders to the great points, knowing that the little ones would follow of themselves. If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send 150. lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, & talk by the hour? That 150 lawyers should do business together ought not to be expected."
For over four years now, American citizens have been subjected to almost daily lawyerly Presidential lecturing, "explaining," semantic maneuvering, and propaganda intended to convince them that the great and essential principles of liberty underlying their Constitution's strict limits on the size, scope and powers of their government are outdated and should be ignored in favor of trust in government officials who, by their own admission, "know" nothing about anything and are accountable to no one but themselves.
Enough talk, already!
“But a newly-codified rule book, administration officials said, would hold U.S. authorities to a tougher standard when deciding whom to kill, where, and under what circumstances.”
Food channels don't show how to cook a dog.
When will the nightmare end. Long after he leaves office.
“do you have a link to that new order?”
Just found it’s called “newly codified Rule book”. I’m looking for it.
He’s also an expert at hanging curtains and at using umbrellas.
Please let me know the link if you find it.
All in all, a desperate attempt to give the media something different to write about and try and soothe the savage scandal-beast while making the low-information voters think they can keep trusting and adoring him. However, it did provide more insight into just how conflicted his policies are and the huge gap between his idealism and the reality of today.
Bingo. Drone strikes are totally out of character for 0bama. This is how you know there’s an alterior motive for doing them; PRACTICE FOR HERE. Anyone who doesn’t believe this, must also deny that the DHS is buying BILLIONS OF HOLLOW POINT BULLETS NOT USED FOR TRAINING PURPOSES.
No doubt, this is cutting into my soap (Days)....grrrrrrrrrr
Mr. President, do you not understand that the First Amendment to the People's Constitution is the supreme law of the land which "shields" the press, excludes it from your purview, and was the Founders' intended way to prevent people like you and your fellow "progressives" from assaulting the Creator-endowed rights of "We, the People"?
No further law is needed. Just respect that Constitution which, according to all who love liberty, and when its principles are respected, will protect and "shield" the freedom of the press and all the other areas excluded from intrusion by government officials.
Castro, too. Probably Mao, Staling and Hugo Chavez, too.
Yeah! Went ova to swampmen and watched some alligators get kilt right when his majesty was warned of. Don’t watch it it’s hazardous to health. No I’m not talking to the alligators.
