Is ISIS really as much of a threat as the Soviet Union in the 50s and 60s? That is what I was criticising in my earlier comment.
This style of fear-generating speech comes across as more political campaigning than an actual warning to the American public. Once again the GOP talker is attempting to convey the message that the President is doing nothing to protect America. As with so much political speech, the warning was not about speaking TRUTH but more about reassuring the acolytes that everything they 'know' is TRUE - even when more rational folks are saying, WTF!
