Obama: 'There’s A Sense The World Is Spinning So Fast and Nobody Is Able To Control It'
The Weekly Standard | October 7, 2014
At a DNC fundraiser today, President Barack Obama voiced a concern many Americans might now have. "[T]here’s a sense possibly that the world is spinning so fast and nobody is able to control it," Obama told Democrats at the White Street Restaurant in New York, New York.
But Obama suggested that he has things under control:
And yet if you look at what happened at the General Assembly on the terrorist group ISIS and the need to mobilize an international community to push back against their radical violence, it was the United States that mobilized that coalition both in the Middle East and around the world.
When you look at Ebola, a humanitarian crisis in West Africa, but also a public health crisis that has the possibility of affecting people around the world, it was the United States that is committed to building the infrastructure that allows health workers to get in and start saving lives and making sure that children aren't dying on the streets.
When it came to blunting Russian aggression, it was the United States that mobilized NATO countries and the world community to stand up for the principle that people are independent and have the ability to make their own decisions about their own lives and to seek freedom and prosperity on their own terms.
