President Barack Obama on Thursday assured his most fervent supporters on Capitol Hill the “Democrats will win in November” and said it’s going to take more than “phony tough talk and bluster” to defeat Islamic militants.
He was standing before House Democrats at a conference in Baltimore Obama reportedly stated the country is “doing a lot better” than when he took office. He stressed on his achievements within the years in office, progress against Islamic State forces and suspending Iran’s nuclear program — the reduction of gas prices, 18 million people now having a health insurance and 5 percent unemployment.
Referring back to the not so good statement by presidential front-runner Donald Trump at GOP, Obama stated the U.S. won’t get better all by itself “by allowing politicians to insult Muslims or pit groups of Americans against each other.”
Obama’s strongly stood by his global leadership standard kicking against a chorus of GOP attacks from Trump and other presidential candidates. He said the U.S. and a joint forces of more than 60 countries continues “to hunt down and destroy ISIL including with nearly 10,000 air strikes.”
Obama clearly stated that “We’re not going to build progress with a bunch of phony tough talk and bluster and over-the-top claims that just play into ISIL’s hands” Obama said. “That’s not keeping America safe.”
Obama loudly blamed the Republicans for opposing him at every turn.
“Sometimes I get a little frustrated that we don’t run back the tapes to what Republicans said back then” when predicting his policies wouldn’t work Obama said. He noted that his 2012 presidential opponent, Mitt Romney, promised 6 percent unemployment but it has already dropped to 5 percent.
“At each juncture, every single one of the steps we took, they said the opposite. Wanted to go in a different direction and he claimed that our policies would crush jobs and destroy the economy” Obama said. “Do people remember that?”
Obama also admonished the people to stand and stay solidly behind the Democrats candidate because with them American will live of up to the true American dream. http://www.whorunsgov.com/presidential-polls-2016-gallup-poll-not-favorable-to-jeb-bush/02813
