It is getting crazy how determined President Obama is to lie his way to a spotless legacy. He’s already claimed on more than one occasion that his administration has seen no scandal, and now he made the bold-faced lie in front of a crowd of soldiers that there have been no terrorist attacks on US soil during his presidency.
The Daily Caller reports:
In a speech at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, the soon to be former commander-in-chief touted what he deems to be his national security accomplishments. At one point in the speech, Obama claimed that during his tenure no foreign terrorist organization “has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
“We should take great pride in the progress we’ve made over the last eight years,” Obama declared. “No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
The declaration was met with tepid applause among service members, many of whom simply stared back at the president (video below via American Mirror).
The reason such a claim is difficult to respond to enthusiastically is the grim reality of what has transpired over the last eight years: radical Islamic terrorists — most of them inspired by foreign entities, particularly ISIS — having “successfully planned and executed” attacks on innocent people on American soil: the Ft. Hood rampage; the Boston Marathon bombing; the execution of two NYPD officers; the attack in Garland, Texas; the murder of four military servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee; the San Bernardino attack; the Pulse Nightclub massacre; the NYC Bomber, and just last week, the Ohio State jihadist.
This blatant disrespect for our armed forces and for the victims of the terrorist attacks he’s blatantly ignoring are astounding. You can’t really blame him for trying, however, because the sad thing is, comments like these are repeated by liberals and regurgitated until the end of time, regardless of the facts.
Obama’s presidency has seen so much violence, so much erosion of personal liberty, a stagnant economy and the rise of ISIS, to name a few failures, and yet because the left was always so determined he would be successful, he always will be in their eyes. No facts required.
