I read the speech. It was like "sweetness and light" and "talking points" all rolled into one.
My take: Pres. Obama inherited the AUMF (Authorization to Use Military Force) from the former administration (natch). Now America will just have to do better when trying to get along with other countries/cultures.
I dunno. Read the speech and see what all of you think...

"But this war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. That’s what our democracy demands.
"Our victory against terrorism won’t be measured in a surrender ceremony at a battleship, or a statue being pulled to the ground. Victory will be measured in parents taking their kids to school; immigrants coming to our shores; fans taking in a ballgame; a veteran starting a business; a bustling city street; a citizen shouting her concerns at a President.
"The quiet determination; that strength of character and bond of fellowship; that refutation of fear -- that is both our sword and our shield. And long after the current messengers of hate have faded from the world’s memory, alongside the brutal despots, and deranged madmen, and ruthless demagogues who litter history -- the flag of the United States will still wave from small-town cemeteries to national monuments, to distant outposts abroad. And that flag will still stand for freedom."

"The AUMF (Authorization to Use Military Force) is now nearly 12 years old. The Afghan war is coming to an end. Core al Qaeda is a shell of its former self. Groups like AQAP (Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) must be dealt with, but in the years to come, not every collection of thugs that labels themselves al Qaeda will pose a credible threat to the United States. Unless we discipline our thinking, our definitions, our actions, we may be drawn into more wars we don’t need to fight, or continue to grant Presidents unbound powers more suited for traditional armed conflicts between nation states.
"So I look forward to engaging Congress and the American people in efforts to refine, and ultimately repeal, the AUMF’s mandate. And I will not sign laws designed to expand this mandate further. Our systematic effort to dismantle terrorist organizations must continue. But this war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. That’s what o
Duncey, Having a hard time finding the..." "the war against terrorism is over" quote. Can you help a brother out?...or are you lying again. You make it so hard to believe anything you say.
DustOff, I'm still chuckling over that song...

In the real world Dusty would receive an 82% neg to 18% pro...But he's one of you so can all go gather by the river, the beautiful,the beautiful rivvvvver...

Classy men don't laugh as children die on the streets of Boston.
Name-calling is always the last move when there is no more argument.
Sounds like "Desperado" over the AM radio...

Quasimodo sings from the belfry...
Dusty, you're pathetic!
My goof. I meant "Veritas" when I said "DustOff."
At first glance, and without reading the article yet, the "employer-provided health insurance" as "an idea whose time has passed" is one I might agree with, provided that it's not going to be government-mandated, government-provided health insurance instead.

Gee, I don't know all the details dusty but there is apparently bipartisan political support & private scholars working on it for which you are neither!
Your the hunchback crying from the bell tower with the one sided bad news of the day...nothing more!
Thanks, DustOff. I hope I can make the time today.
"A hidden consensus on health care"
10 hours ago • By ROSS DOUTHAT
Bismarck Tribune Columnist...Today
(last paragraph) 'Either way, the White House’s decision is a step toward honesty in policy-making. It takes us a little closer to a world where politicians of both parties actually level with the public, and acknowledge that employer-provided health insurance is an idea whose time has passed."
Ross Gregory Douthat (/'da???t/; born November 28, 1979) is a conservative American author, blogger and New York Times columnist.
Read the article loco...
"The LIBS on this site are NOT saying one word about the pros of lite o's plan?"
DustOff, your point is well worth considering. I'd have thought that there'd be many continued words of affirmation and adulation about the ACA in its entirety from those who supported its passage, especially those who avidly support our president's policies, of which ACA was a biggie.
I'd like to hear more from Democrats/liberals exactly WHY the President is delaying implementation of certain ACA provisions until January 2015.
Y'all have the floor...
I'ld serve everyone except the pathological liar (Ron Carlson)...
Funny how the libs side with the dipstick no matter what the situation.
BEST BARTENDER JOKE EVER !
A lawyer, an Illegal Alien, a Pathological Liar, a Muslim, a Communist, and a Black Guy walk into a BAR.
"What'll it be, Mr. President?"
"who laughs while people suffer"
I think it's quite obvious by now Duncey that you are LYING again about that quote. Where is the original quote? Where is your damning evidence that you keep threatening to show us? You are full of "IT" and every time you open your big trap "IT" falls out.

Are we as silent as you whenever we ask you to back up any one of your WHOPPER LIES?
Did you ever answer the question about President Obama's response time to the Arizona Fire fighters?
"BTW I am not Ron Carlson either...he’s a pathological liar and a fraud."
Ron Carlson's tip of the day "make up a lie and stick with it!!"
"I laugh when people suffer we epee,"
Again Duncey, when the bombs went off in Boston your very first reaction was to make jokey jokes. I said Ron Carlson/DustOff3 likes to laugh when other people suffer.
Again you are just trying to fill your daily quota of LIES.
..."BTW, I'm not Ron Carlson either...He's a pathological liar and a fraud!"
Too bad you "can't" read DustOff's posts, Veritas. You might learn a thing or two about how conservatives feel and think.
"To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy."
Sun Tzu, "The Art of War"
BTW, that quote's not in the watered-down modern version, The Art of Compromise. Thought you'd like to know...
Can't read your posts anymore dusty...You're a liar!
