In his final State of the Union address, Barack Obama said that if anyone doubted his ability to uphold justice, they should consult the former al-Qaida leader. Does this induce him the toughest-talking legislator ever? Lets find out

Margaret Thatcher

You turn if you want to. The lady not for turning .
I literally simply turned around. Nothing happened. Big whoop.

David Cameron

I watched, for the 17 th and hopefully the last day, The Guns of Navarone on New Years Eve. I always watch just in case the explosives dont come off in the end .~ ATAGEND
We get it Dave, you like explosions. Calm down.

Ed Miliband

Am I tough enough? Hell, yes, Im tough enough .~ ATAGEND
An especially poor effort, especially given that Miliband said it in the voice of the child from that
McCain oven chips advert.

David Steel

Go back to your constituencies, and prepare for government !
Apparently some of his audience are still at home preparing for government, like those Japanese soldiers who didnt know the war ended.

Boris Johnson

No one obeys the speed restriction except a motorised rickshaw.
In an ideal world, Boris would have left a pause after restriction, put one across his aviators, finished the quote and then sped off on his motorbike to the stress of Bad to the Bone, leaving a befuddled policeman in his aftermath. But still, points for trying.

Ronald Reagan

When you cant induce them see the light, induce them feel the hot .~ ATAGEND
Like Boris, this quote required an ellipsis, a flip-down welders mask and a blowtorch for it to really pop.

George W Bush

Every nation in every region now has a decision to induce. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists .~ ATAGEND
Its the in every region that seals this one. Scandinavia, Bush is seeming right at you.

Hillary Clinton

I cant stand whining .~ ATAGEND
This is Clinton as Alan Sugar at the start of The Apprentice, and therefore more terrifying than shes ever seen.

Winston Churchill

We shall fight on the beaches .~ ATAGEND
Have you ever tried to fight person on a beach? All that sand means you cant truly get enough buy. Churchill truly entailed business here.
8/ 10

Vladimir Putin

Russia doesnt negotiate with terrorists. It destroys them.
This is how you do it. Chilling.

Silvio Berlusconi

When asked if they would like to have sex with me, 30% of women said yes, while the other 70% replied: What, again ?
Legitimately, the scariest terms ever spoken by a legislator. Obama, you never stood a chance.
