Excerpt from The Daily Signal
Written by Brett Schaefer
President Barack Obama gave his eighth and final address to the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday morning. The tone was reminiscent of past speeches in a number of ways, both good and bad.
The rhetoric was soaring in parts and it was well delivered. However, his characterization of the world and his successes tended toward the Pollyannaish and the president’s irritating tendency to focus on himself and air domestic political grievances in international venues detracted from his remarks. At times the president also crossed the line from urging others to see his vision into condescension and lecturing.
