"Gearing up for the State of the Union lecture he is preparing to treat us to this year, President Obama wanted to put a positive spin on the results of his many years in the Oval Office.

"It is a chilling testament to his myriad of failures as Commander-in-Chief that one positive he reaches for, amid his many delusions, is that the Americans are not facing “existential threats”.
. . . 
"I am not comforted. Recall that he asserted there was no threat the the homeland from Islamic terrorists shortly before the San Bernardino terror attack occurred.

"The recent seizure of our Navy ships is an indication that his dreams of a peace deal with Iran are tuning into a nightmarish reality for the next administration to handle.

"Obama’s signature achievement, Obamacare, is slowly collapsing under the weight of its complexities and costs. Just ahead of the State of the Union, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is going forward with plans to close down the state-run Obamacare insurance marketplace.

"Two of tonight’s audience members are not fans of Obamacare, either:
. . . 
Then there are Obama's plans for after his presidency
…Mr. Netanyahu recently is said to have gotten wind of Obama’s plans which he calls the Obama Project. “Wasn’t eight years of having Obama in office enough?”
Emphasis mine, TD

. . . "The president, he surmised, seems more apt to address climate change.
“ 'I have never been more afraid for my children’s future.”
"Along with Obama’s designated empty seat are a lot of empty promises.
“I don’t believe anything that comes out of his mouth,” Marino fumed. “He’s in this for himself. He is a narcissist.”
"Which uninvited guests, we wondered, should have been granted seats at tonight’s speech? Without hesitating, Marino said the family of Kate Steinle, the young woman who was tragically killed by an illegal immigrant in the sanctuary city of San Francisco last summer." . . .

Will Obama show any tears at the State of the Union?  . . . "So pardon me if I don’t get choked up when he sheds a fake or real tear when he is pushing a political agenda.

"The president says he wants commonsense laws to save even one life.  Here are a couple easy suggestions:

"Maybe the Justice Department and states should actually enforce existing laws instead of always wanting more laws.  That would be common sense, but the Democrats and Obama won't suggest that.  They should keep criminal gang members off the streets.  They obviously know where they are.

"Maybe Obama and all the liberal governors and mayors should actually enforce existing immigration laws instead of supporting sanctuary cities and suing states that want to enforce the laws."

LYNDON B. OBAMA:   “When it comes to offering progress reports on his war against ISIS, Barack Obama is beginning to sound like a previous wartime Democratic president. It is not a flattering comparison,” Richard Benedetto recently noted at Real Clear Politics:
Over the past few weeks, Obama has issued several upbeat statements crafted to assure an uneasy American people that the fight against terror is going well, only to have the facts come back and bite him.
He is starting to develop a “credibility gap,” faced by Lyndon Baines Johnson during the Vietnam War. LBJ and his commanders kept telling the nation that the war was going well when it really was not.
. . .  "No word yet if the US sailors detained in Iran will be flashing “the Hawaiian good luck sign” at their captors, but it would certainly have double meaning this time around."
