State of the Union: Obama Blames Congress For Inaction Against Islamic State

In the text released of his final State of the Union address, President Obama cynically attacks Congress for his own inaction against ISIS. Although — whether it’s flooding the country with illegals or restricting gun ownership for law-abiding Americans — this lawless president is always eager to usurp the Constitution through illegal executive actions, on the one issue where he does have the constitutional authority (foreign policy) he blames Congress for his dereliction of duty:

If this Congress is serious about winning this war, and wants to send a message to our troops and the world, you should finally authorize the use of military force against ISIL. Take a vote. But the American people should know that with or without Congressional action, ISIL will learn the same lessons as terrorists before them. If you doubt America’s commitment — or mine — to see that justice is done, ask Osama bin Laden. Ask the leader of al Qaeda in Yemen, who was taken out last year, or the perpetrator of the Benghazi attacks, who sits in a prison cell. When you come after Americans, we go after you. It may take time, but we have long memories, and our reach has no limit.
