CFP: I’ll be honest. As terrible as it was, Obama’s piddling oval office lecture was not the worst thing on TV last night. That honor goes to Garth Brooks singing “Luck Be a Lady” on the Sinatra 100 special. Still, if you tuned in to watch the President’s address, you know that it was pretty bad.
Obama looked tired, disinterested, and eager to be anywhere else. That’s probably not surprising when you realize that delivering the speech meant the poor man had to arrive late for his standing ovation at the star-studded Kennedy Center Honors performance. We all know how much he likes a good party.
His diatribe was filled with the usual half-baked nonsense about how “we’re goin to win” and how we’ve decimated that other (still active) terrorist organization, and how we need more gun control.
Virtually every news outlet commented about how incredibly weak the whole thing was, but one of the best rebuttals came to us from The Daily Beast’s Michael Weiss. He appeared with Wolf Blitzer and delivered a blistering assessment of our nonexistent “ISIS strategy” that positively decimated Obama’s feel-good narrative.
