Remember back in 2008 when Hillary accused Barry of being all talk, nothing but a bunch of words? The community organizer responded strongly to her criticism:
Don’t tell me words don’t matter.I have a dream – Just words?We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal – Just words?We have nothing to fear but fear itself – Just words? Just speeches?It’s true that speeches don’t solve all problems.But what is also true is that if we can’t inspire our country to believe again, then it doesn’t matter how many policies and plans we have, and that is why I’m running for president of the United States of America.And that’s why we just won eight elections straight because the American people want to believe in change again.Don’t tell me words don’t matter! - Obama, Minnesota February 2008
Yesterday he again responded strongly, this time to Donald Trump’s criticism; only this time it seems he no longer thinks words matter that much.
"There's no magic to the phrase 'radical Islam.' It’s a political talking point. It’s not a strategy."
"What exactly would using this label accomplish? What exactly would it change? Would it make ISIL less committed to kill Americans? Would it bring in more allies? Is there a military strategy that is served by this?" he said. "The answer is none of the above." – USA TODAY
The commander in chief's fury, which seethed out of him in a stunning soliloquy on live television, amounted to a moment of historic significance: a president castigating one of the two people who could succeed him as beyond the constitutional and political norms of the nation itself. – CNN
I wonder - if words no longer matter to the man previously known as “nothing butt words” – why does he keep insisting on “ISIL” instead of ISIS?
