My impressions of Obama`s state of mind while delivering his address from the Oval Office:
Cold. Robotic. Distant. Disconnected from reality. No empathy, inspiration or vison. Perfunctory. No confidence. In denial. Petulant.
We are engaged in an existential war with radical Islam. In the wake of the latest outrage perpetrated on the homeland by Islamic terrorists we were waiting to hear a comprehensive battle plan from our commander-in-chief.
Instead of an inspiring speech by our commander-in-chief, Obama in his professorial-mode delivered a lackluster lecture that left us bewildered, unsatisfied and angry. It was the wrong time and the wrong place to lecture us about anti-Muslim discrimination and gun control, Obama should have focused like a laser on what his administration is doing to keep us safe, and what his plans are to destroy the Islamic State.
In retrospect I guess it was too much to expect a new strategy to destroy ISIS, since the one in place clearly isn`t working, when Obama doesn`t even dare utter the name of our enemy: Radical Islam!
Bottom Line: Obama`s speech left us deflated and discouraged and ISIS emboldened and inspired.
