    Actually, I think he said all the right things. Of course, the extreme right wing nutters, the ones who would take the Muslim Terrorist statement seriously, won't like what he said, but I thought he was spot on.

    Now that we've heard what he had to say, we need to watch what he does.

    Especially considering all of your posts lately.

    Not to mention the Seditionist behavior of GOPs since they came back to town.

    The best part of congress is that they will be gone on vacation again in a few weeks
    How can your post be in response to any negative posts, when your post was #4 and the ones before it were pretty supportive even though they pointed out minor problems?

    You went full tilt anti-GOP, and said absolutely nothing about Obama or his speech. Who was being hackish, I ask you?

    Sedition??? Seriously?

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I liked what I heard. Depending on how good the Iraqi forces become I think it can be a winning strategy. I hope other Arab countries join in and send some troops to help out. We shall see.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Not impressed. There are things that he should have been doing all along that he didn't do, which brings us to this point. He doesn't have the balls to do what needs to be done and he's too politically correct to call a spade a spade and say that this is actually a Muslim problem.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Is ISIS going to weaponize his bitterness?

    His bitterness on CNN is now part of the ISIL computer manual, since we know how tech-savvy they are .

    Generally speaking, a good speech. But what will actually happen is a big question mark. I don't know 100% after listening to him that he realizes that ISIS is a real army. I hope so, and I'll stay optimistic that he does.
    If he has been following the news at all, he knows - and he knows more than we do! What this speech was meant to convey to anyone in particular is still a puzzle to me. I doubt ISIS is shaking in their boots, though. And speaking of boots, how can we not have "boots on the ground" and expect to win without killing or injuring millions of people? Is the "coalition" going to be expected to provide the "boots?" If we turned the entire area to glass, maybe, but that's by no means certain either. Hiroshima and Nagasaki leaders in Japan weren't killed when we used atomic bombs - just the little people. It's just sad this is all taking place just before the upcoming election. I hope Congress gets answers before they provide the money, because we've known about what ISIS is doing for a long time - after all, the media has been very good about covering all the atrocities that have been taking place! :

    I "listened" to the speech in the yard while not looking at the TV, as I have with these major speeches for years.

    I "heard" Mr. Obama trying to sound more demonstrative,
    yet compassionate to those being negatively affected in the ME and comforting to the Nation about our safety at home moving forward.

    Yet he continued walking a bit softly but ISIL will soon find out how big a stick the USA yields .
