Trailer Talk, Featuring Barack Obama
Sunday, September 28, 2014
Maybe you're getting the hang of this, Mr. President.
President Barack Obama wants everyone to know "how we roll": The US always takes the lead in international crises.
...Obama was asked why the US is contributing such a significant portion of the military coalition against the jihadist group known as the Islamic State or ISIS. Obama responded by arguing that other countries were not stepping up.
"When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don't call Beijing, they don't call Moscow. They call us. That's the deal," he quipped....
"That's always the case. That's always the case. America leads. We are the indispensable nation," he said. "We have capacity no one else has. Our military is the best in the history of the world."
Your people should reach out to us. We can help you with this one. After all, a lot of us are the ones who did it last time. We're the ones who know the right people by name, and have sat on their couches and eaten oranges or drunk boiled coffee.
