• MSNBC: ‘Obama’s Rose-Colored Glasses Not Even Close To Reality’

    Obama told a lot of lies last night in his State of the Union address. There were just too many to count. Some were small. Some were huge. And apparently, Obama’s so-called foreign policy successes were lies too big for NBC News’s chief foreign correspondent, Richard Engel, to let slide.

    Engel could barely compose himself while reacting to Obama’s statements that his strategy against ISIS is working (video above).

    “It seems that the rose-colored glasses through which President Obama was viewing the foreign policy were so rose-colored that they don’t even reflect the world that we’re living in,” Engel said during MSNBC’s post-speech coverage.

    “ISIS is doing very well, and the strategy is completely disjointed,” he added. “To sell that as a success, I think was missing the point, maybe even disingenuous.”

    Similarly, MSNBC anchors Andrea Mitchell and Chris Matthews were both equally amazed at how completely divorced from reality Obama’s “rosy” international picture is:

    Presidents get to “define their universe,” Matthews said, “. . . I kept thinking tonight that there’s a real world out there that he didn’t really talk about.”

    “I think on foreign policy, his projection of success against terrorism, and against ISIS in particular, is not close to reality,” Mitchell added. “They just . . . they have not come up with a strategy.”

    “So you’re right, Chris, it doesn’t match the reality,” she concluded.

    Indeed, despite months of mostly American fighter jets and drones dropping bombs on several keys ISIS targets in Syria, the Islamic State is still advancing and capturing swaths of territory.

    Obama has lost the support of MSNBC. And that’s saying something.
