Donald Trump probably provided as good a one-two punch as will emerge against Barack Obama’s half-hearted Oval Office address to the country Sunday. Mr. Trump asked, “Is that all there is?” and concluded, “We need a new president-FAST.”
Is that all there is? We need a new President – FAST!

At the top of the Obama short list, of course, was a demand for new gun control measures. The Obama goal will be to tag gun control into a war resolution package for an all-or-nothing vote.

Rather than spending a minute pouring over Obama’s watered down remarks, Americans would be better off reading Robert Spencer’s The Complete Infidel’s Guide to ISIS. Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

It cannot confront jihadists even on Twitter.
