MSNBC hosts, who are routinely supportive of Obama, splashed some cold water on several of the Presidentâ€™s boldest claims he made during the 2015 State of the Union address.
In rather stark language, Chris Matthews and Andrea Mitchell laid out a sobering picture of why several of the Presidentâ€™s words were â€˜not close to reality'
CHRIS MATTHEWS: â€œâ€¦ even in a solipsistic way. Because I kept thinking tonight, thereâ€™s a real world out there that he didnâ€™t really talk about. And perhaps the over-ambitious notions where we stood in the war against ISIL, the Islamic State â€“ he doesnâ€™t want to call it the Islamic State, but thatâ€™s what they call themselves â€“ uh, thereâ€™s two Japanese people, no guilt on their shoulders, just staring out of the desert, who are going to be, apparently, decapitatedâ€¦ Uh, that reality, what is going on in Nigeria is reality. How close was the President to reality, overall, globally, tonight?
ANDREA MITCHELL: â€œI think that on foreign policy, his projection of success against terrorism and against ISIS in particular, as I said, is not close to reality. Itâ€™s just thatâ€¦ they have not come up with a strategy. And they built a global coalitionâ€¦ but again, he talked about Ukraine, he talked about Putin being isolatedâ€¦ yes, Putin is isolated economically, and the falling oil prices have hammered his economy, but at the same time there is renewed fighting in Donetsk, and we havenâ€™t figured out Ukraine, we havenâ€™t figured out how the NATO alliance can push back. The sanctions have not really worked, and Ukraine is going to need more weaponry. They have not reached that point.
So, youâ€™re right, Chris. It doesnâ€™t match the reality.â€http://www.ijreview.com/2015/01/236...-close-reality/Comments below the above article:
