WASHINGTON, DC - When President Barack Hussein Obama spoke at the United Nations Monday, he begged for cooperation with North Korea, Iran and Russia in an effort to end the Syrian civil war that has left the Middle East in ruin.
Given the difficult business of choosing between evils, Obama is sticking to his commitment to fight ISIS and the Republicans: "We will not be outlasted by extremists - foreign or domestic." he said.
Obama sought to use his favored weapon -- oratory -- to beat off his international challengers as well as conservatives in the U.S. who've branded him a wimp. He also used the UN speech to rebuke the views of Republican presidential candidates on immigration and religion.
