I sat through he whole speech and other than saying "I invite..." twice, he never once spoke the words I, me or my to raise himself above the subject of the celebration: America. Contrast that to Obama's 42 "I sentences" in his speech about Bin Laden's capture.

Well, yes.


However, as a patriotic nationalist, I'd give Obama my approval for having provided the leadership that killed that enemy of the United States.

THINK about it. He could have had Bin Laden captured and given him political asylum in the United States. I give Trump credit for acting like a patriotic nationalist that day, if no other.

Donald Trump could have done no better.

My understanding is that they had asked for permission to launch operations to take bin Laden down a half-dozen times, and Obama said no. Finally an opportunity came up and they launched the operation, and then told Obama - after copters were in the air. He would have had to cancel action already in progress to save bin Laden, and even he saw how bad that would look to Americans.

I hadn't heard that one.


Even if true, the President is Commander in Chief and Obama gets credit for putting an end to Bin Laden, in my view.

Obama had at least one day where he acted like a patriotic nationalist. Perhaps that was the best day he was in office. He was smart enough to realize that. but I suppose he was too weighed down by his liberal internationalist base to revise what he was doing to have additional good days like that.

Well, better one good day than none at all, don't you think?

Your understanding is wrong, as usual. If it was impromptu, everyone wouldn't have gathered in the situation room ahead of time. Nice try perpetuating another lie, though.

We were busy with family goings-ons over the holiday and so missed the Capitol parade and speeches, so watched it last nite on YouTube.

I never once heard the President refer to himself, his policies or, perhaps most important, any attacks on his critics (primarily from the band of 23) claiming over and over that this was all going to be about Trump's ego, self aggrandizement, etc, etc. Instead, this was all about service members and recognizing what they have done and how they have collectively, all armed services, made possible what we have today.

Some might conclude Trump is finally listening to his aides, softening his rhetoric, putting positive spin on his speech topics, focusing on others rather than himself, and so forth. But something tells me this is all part of his plan. The first couple of years, lure the left and its media patrons into a cacophony of hate narratives they can no longer control and feel compelled to spew such rancor into the microphone at every opportunity. Then he begins a steady build-up of positive rhetoric while largely....but not completely....ignoring such radical left rants while focusing on topics of importance to voters, such as drug prices, favorable trade agreements, border security and perhaps most important, develop a plan for health care coverage that will actually be affordable. The Left will be so deeply buried in its own crap it will not be able to respond and those most qualified to respond, will have been eliminated from the race.

Just a guess, but we'll see how this unfolds.
