CNN on stupid speech that screwed up my NCIS fix:
It wasn't a particularly artful speech, nor was it full of new and interesting ideas. It was what it was: a ceremonial proclamation ending combat in a war Obama inherited (and opposed) and a declaration to fight another war (also, as he says, inherited) on the economy.
Don't you love when CNN says the truth. You don't even need a textbook for this, people. The 'war on drugs' means we are trying to eliminate drugs, same with 'war on poverty' (disclaimer: I don't endorse either.) So, yeah, he is trying to kill the economy. This is going to be the first successful "war" we waged ever.
