JPost: “Obama, delivering his last State of the Union speech to Congress before leaving office next year, said it was fiction to declare the United States was in economic decline or getting weaker on the international stage.

In a direct slap at Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, Obama said insulting Muslims hurt the United States and “betrayed” its identity.

“When politicians insult Muslims … that doesn’t make us safer,” he said, drawing applause from the crowd in the House of Representatives chamber. “It’s just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world. It makes it harder to achieve our goals.”

Opinion: President Obama will forever be remembered for the presidency whose destructive foreign policy gave birth to the most heinous terror group the world has ever known.

The speech reminds me of the 1958 hit by Connie Francis, “Who’s Sorry Now?”

Maestro:

“Who’s sorry now? Who’s sorry now?  Whose heart is achin’ for breakin’ each vow?  Who’s sad and blue, who’s cryin’ too?  Just like I cried over you…

Right to the end, just like a friend  I tried to warn you somehow. You had your way, now you must pay, I’m glad that you’re sorry now.”
