And the stock market will tank as soon as he starts speaking...

He’s going to say some “tough words” against ISIS (who he helped arm in Syria). They know he’s on their side.

Maybe he could tell ISIS that they've been bad boys and give the weapons back if they're not going to use them against Assad.

Or maybe they could do what happened in WW2. Stable govs could unite to take out ISIS just like what happened with the Nazis then go back to their animosities. I doubt anyone in charge is enough of a visionary to do that.

King Obama must have read about his horrible poll ratings. Maybe he’s going to offer Obamacare to ISIS,,that should help, right?

Let’s start a pool how late he will be. I’m saying he starts at 12:47 Eastern time.

I would tune in to Rush to hear his take on the lies about to be spewed forth from little bath-house barry bastard boy, but Rush will play the tape so I couldn’t avoid hearing the liar-in-chief that way either.

You KNOW someone will ask about the chemical weapons that ISIL just found in Iraq.

This presser won't work out so well for him.

I would not be surprised if he cancels it.

Prereleased Excerpt Obama Speech:

Our Southern Border is Open........We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in Texas, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall promote and defend our minority and ethnic nation, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender and all of you WILL vote for MY Hope and Change!!!!

He’ll express “deep concern”, then tell ISIS everything he’s ruled out doing.

He may be on time for this one. He does not want to be late to the course, its bad form.

I’ve never once listened to Obama deliver any speech, and I’m not going to start listening to him now, either. Just hearing his voice for a mere few seconds is something that I can’t stand ... literally so.

I’ll just read about the idiotic statements that he’s going to make. Just reading about him is difficult enough!
