Please help me out here. Which should be taken more seriously: a "strongly worded statement", a "red line", or a "pointed warning?"

Could of fooled me...
What a disaster the man is.’’’
I guess Egypt (overthrow of Mubarek) and Libya are not in the Middle East. The lies that come out of this man’s mouth!
Obama be the “Bystander in Chief”. That is his style. He is not leery but maybe “Queery”. Lead from behind...he is not even doing that.
