President Obama spoke this evening on the San Bernardino murders and terrorism. I found a transcript after listening to him this evening. I plan to plow through that later, but as usual, Obama talks and talks and even when he says we have three points, not one of his three points is a single sentence without a dozen extra words. As I have written here before, it is terribly hard for me to remember anything he has said in a speech even minutes after. He needs to read Lincoln's Gettysburg address and seriously consider hiring a word surgeon to shorten his speeches and make each sentence with some punch.
I don't remember anything he said that I disagreed with, but I also don't remember anything he said which is likely to cause me to do a whole hell of a lot either. If he wants us to get behind the program on destroying ISIS or ISIL, he better first persuade all the Muslims in this country to get behind the attack.
New aliens coming into the US should first go to something resembling a detention center where they can be evaluated over a period of days to determine their ability to speak English and their knowledge of American morals, customs, and ethics. It should be up to the federal government to teach these aliens rather than dumping them onto local taxpayers as another huge unfunded federal mandate.
Maybe I will add more to this tomorrow after I attack the text with a pencil and notes. Obama is both blessed and cursed with a collection of crazy Republican politicians mad ravings make him look good by comparison as they attack him as if he is the tar baby.
