They just need to remember there are only 45 more days until a new commander-in-chief is sworn in.
President Obama received tepid applause from troops in Tampa, Florida during his last nation security speech as president.
Obama made the eyebrow-raising declaration that, “We should take great pride in the progress we’ve made over the last eight years. No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
As mild applause broke out, the cameras cut to the audience.
Of the roughly 20 service members shown at MacDill Air Force Base, only three were clapping.
Most sat with their hands folded or motionless. One man rubbed his eyes.
Most didn’t applaud likely because they remembered attacks being carried out in San Bernardino, California, and Orlando, Florida by jihadis vowing allegiance to ISIS.
And they likely remembered, too, ISIS claiming credit for the attack on Ohio State University by a Somali “refugee.”
