    What you mean is he has substantive points and you are getting tired of hearing about them.

    I like what the president said:

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/obama-...234603911.html

    In a "60 Minutes" interview Sunday evening, Obama was asked why the US is contributing such a significant portion of the military coalition against the jihadist group known as the Islamic State or ISIS. Obama responded by arguing that other countries were not stepping up.

    "When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don't call Beijing, they don't call Moscow. They call us. That's the deal," he quipped.

    When CBS' Steve Kroft pressed Obama on the relatively small contributions from some of the US' coalition partners, Obama insisted such arrangements were expected.

    "That's always the case. That's always the case. America leads. We are the indispensable nation," he said. "We have capacity no one else has. Our military is the best in the history of the world."

    Well, it's good that he is changing his speech. This is much better than "leading from behind."

    These are words when the time for action has long passed.

    Action *is* happening right now, at the United States' initiative, which is a far cry from the "leading from behind" stance, so this is progress, but I guess you don't have it in you to agree with anything the President says.

    ISIS would not even be in Iraq if Dear Leader had listened to our military leaders and the Iraqi govt. Now many people have died and we have to risk our troops again.

    Thats leading from behind.

    No, the Islamic State would not even be in Iraq were Saddam Hussein still there.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
