Obama At Fundraiser: Things Are Pretty Darned Peaceful
Only in Obama World
(The Blaze) President Barack Obama said at a Democratic National Committee event Friday night that things are safer today than they were in the previous three decades.
“[I] promise you things are much less dangerous now than they were 20 years ago, 25 years ago or 30 years ago,” Obama said after referencing challenges posed by the Islamic State terror group, the Ukrainian crisis and China’s advancing economy.
The president’s remarks came just hours after U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron warned that his county is facing the “greatest terrorist threat” in history and as U.S. officials say there has been a “significant increase” in jihadi chatter leading up to the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Obama, however, said that the “truth of the matter” is that the “world has always been messy.”
“[W]e’re just noticing now because of social media … intimate detail the hardships that people are going through.”
In fact, it was a promise that we’re just so darned safe.
There’s vast concern about jihad is, including ISIS, coming across the southern border. Multiple Obama administration officials have stated how dangerous the are. There are conflicts occurring around the world. China is testing the US. Russia is in resurgence, and is looking swallow Ukraine. Our semi-retired president lives in a fantasy world.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post is not particularly impressed by Obama’s minimizing rhetoric and lack of planning, and wonders why he says one thing and lots of people in his administration say the opposite.
And his weekly address? It’s on the minimum wage, pushing the same populist notions.
