Upside: He admits the United Nations is worthless.
If you’re counting at home there were at least eight Uhhhhs in that short clip. What a stirring orator, huh? Frankly, he looks beaten and tired. You can tell he really misses what he does best: campaigning and demonizing Republicans.

President Obama said he will make his case for a military strike on Syria in an address to the nation on Tuesday.
The president announced his intention during a press conference Friday at the G-20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he warned that “the Assad regime’s brazen use of chemical weapons isn’t just a Syrian tragedy.”
“Failing to respond to this breach of this international norm will send a signal to rogue nations … that they can develop and use weapons of mass destruction and not face consequences,” Obama said.
Obama’s decision to address the country from the Oval Office underscores concerns that the administration is losing ground in its bid to secure congressional approval for a vote.
