President Obama’s ‘Peace Is Hard’ speech before the United Nations on September 21 put U.S. allies, as well as enemies, on notice: America the great is no more.
Or to be more blunt, Exceptionally unexceptional is us!

The president appeared weak, tired, and confused, due in part to the fact that his soaring oratory from 2010 has proven unsustainable, when compared to reality.

Scoundrels in Syria, North Korea, and Iran must have found hope in the president’s weakness. The obvious muting of American strength and preeminence will surely embolden the ‘bad guys’ to take greater risks, a fact that makes the world dramatically less safe than it was when Obama took office in 2009.

What will motivate Iran to abandon its quest of a nuclear weapon now that America is no longer interested or capable of providing effective opposition?

Why would North Korea bother to be more civil and accommodating now that the United States is run by a pacifist who prefers to ‘lead from behind’?

Threatening Syrian President Assad with more sanctions is a far cry from rattling a few American sabers in the tyrant’s face.

To Americans, President Obama is now a major embarrassment, both domestically and on the world stage.

Although George W. Bush often delivered speeches replete in broken syntax and mangled grammar, at least the world knew that America was a force to reckon with. And yes, even fear.

By contrast, when Obama speaks, the only fear resides in the hearts of patriotic Americans who are witnessing first hand the decimation of a proud and great nation by an elitist more suited for lecturing than leading.

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
