Obama 'reflects,' sees himself as perfect
If I didn't know he was arrogant, I might think he was naive. From Barack Obama's 'reflections
' while meeting with rabbis before the Jewish New Year.
As Rabbi Matanky noted, Rosh Hashanah is a time for reflection, and I'm
not exempt from that. So, looking back on the last eight years, I'm
both proud of what we've accomplished together, but also mindful of the
work we have before us.
When it comes to the unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security, we've
taken a clear stand, and the recent signing of the Memorandum of
Understanding constitutes the single largest pledge of military
assistance in U.S. history to any country, totaling $38 billion over 10
I made a commitment to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon,
and because of our principled diplomacy, every pathway to a nuclear
weapon is now closed off. Iran has dismantled two-thirds of its
installed centrifuges, shipped out 98 percent of its enriched uranium,
rendered its plutonium reactor core unusable, and adopted the most
comprehensive nuclear inspection ever.
On the global fight against anti-Semitism, we've worked in partnership
with Israel and other countries to take a lead role in organizing the
first ever U.N. General Assembly meeting to combat anti-Semitism last
And so on these issues and many others we have worked incredibly
closely with many of you, allocating millions in assistance for
Holocaust survivors, and ensuring that the U.N. finally recognized Yom
Kippur as an official holiday, and more broadly, working to rebuild a
sinking economy -- so that we've cut the unemployment rate by more than
half, provided health care to 20 million people who didn’t have it
before, ramped up our production of clean energy, signed a historic
Paris agreement that hopefully will curb the accelerating speed at which
our planet is warming and could threaten the future of our children and
Of course, we've still got a lot of work to do -- on the refugee
crisis, on criminal justice reform, reducing violence, and creating a
political culture in this country that’s a little more functional. But a
new year brings new hope, and the community represented on this phone
call has always known what it means to stand up for the less fortunate,
the stranger, the immigrant, the refugee. And so I'm confident that we
can stand together and make sure that as we pass the baton to the next
administration that we're going to be able to build on the enormous
progress that we've already made.
I don't have time to begin answering, but he is arrogance personified.
