For those who missed Sunday’s night pep talk from the current occupant of the White House, which apparently is most everyone, he said nothing but meaningless words.
The 2016 presidential candidates reacted to President Obama’s Oval Office speech on ISIS Sunday night.
“This is not a time for ideological silliness,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubiosaid in a statement. “This is a time for serious action because the future security of our country is at stake.”
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said the speech attempted to switch the focus to gun control.
“The #Obamaspeech was an attempt to turn a necessary discussion on terrorism and national security into a ineffective gun control debate,” Paul wrote on Twitter.
“Wish Obama would say ISIS, like almost everyone else, rather than ISIL,” the billionaire tweeted.
This clown supposedly is a constitutional scholar, so of course he wants to take your constitutional rights away.
President Obama tried yet again Sunday night to convince the nation he’s serious about fighting terror, and, as usual, proved the opposite.
Days after the San Bernardino attack, he finally called it terrorism, but he’s not offering anything new to combat the menace. He still won’t call it Islamist terror, and still wants to fold these attacks in with nonterror mass shootings — and fight them all with trivial tweaks to the gun-control laws.
Ban gun sales to anyone on the terrorism watch list? Gee, the list didn’t include the Fort Hood shooter, the Tsarnaevs or the latest attackers. How about getting a watch list that’s worth a damn?
He gave the same old defense of his anti-ISIS strategy, with the added bit that now there’s a “timetable” for getting a cease-fire in the Syrian war. A timetable — that’ll show ’em!
Perhaps his strategy is to make ISIS die of laughter. This is about all you need to know:
Last time Obama spoke from oval office was Iraq withdrawal. If he'd skipped that speech, he wouldn't need tonight's. pic.twitter.com/g7LmCAJtm1
