"an oddly belated effort to explain the obvious"

Reviews are in on the speech last night. When even Vanity Fair has turned on him, how much political capital does Obama have left?

the war he described Monday doesn't quite match the fight the United States is in - NPR

CNN is giving the missing cobra and Jimmy Carter top billing over Obama's speech it's buried so far, but once you do find it there on their opinion page, you see "Obama's inconsistent rationales"

The AP fact check isn't doing him many favors, either.

Is this the start of a coordinated effort to make sure he's a one termer?

  • I haven't read the transcripts yet..

    JJB has a very succinct summary of it down in the "are you watching Obama" question from last night.

  • YSK, he started by saying our military is great and he supports our troops. He ended by saying, NATO can do it better so I'm leaving it all in their hands. Mostly, cuz we are broke and I might have something to do with that.
    In between The Jackass said " I won, I did it, so there" and uttered some mumbo jumbo about Libyans really liking us-See Cher-he lied to the people about getting a congressional Ok so now he is asking for forgiveness cuz he had a big humanitarian heart, and left hoping the liberals in CA wouldn't turn on their TV's until after 5pm.

  • Thanks NP and JJB.

    I guess he didn't read my question."Who is NATO." LOL Since the US is no longer involved can my hubby come home? LOL

    Basically what all he had was lies and blah blah blah....I guess he didn't get a new speechwriter and the TOTUS isn't in charge.
