Obama to address nation on terrorism tonight in primetime (rerun)

This must be important. According to a tweet by Andrew Peng of the Associated Press, this will be only the third time that President Barack Obama has addressed the nation from the Oval Office.

The other two occasions were to mark the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq (aka, the U.S. surrender to the terrorist occupiers and religious fanatics that promptly moved in to fill the void) and the official administration reaction to the 2010 BP oil spill.

While a transcript of the specific remarks Obama will make have not been released, an abstract by Press Secretary Josh Earnest has gone out in an email and reads:

On Sunday, December 6th at 8:00 PM EST, President Obama will address the nation from the Oval Office about the steps our government is taking to fulfill his highest priority: keeping the American people safe. The President will provide an update on the ongoing investigation into the tragic attack in San Bernardino. The President will also discuss the broader threat of terrorism, including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it. He will reiterate his firm conviction that ISIL will be destroyed and that the United States must draw upon our values – our unwavering commitment to justice, equality and freedom – to prevail over terrorist groups that use violence to advance a destructive ideology. [Emphasis added]

Values warfare: brilliant! He’ll shame ISIS to death.

I got five bucks that says he’ll mention climate change at least once. Any takers?
