Just a reminder: The media created this guy and has propped him up during his sever disastrous years in office. Every time he opens his mouth and says everything’s hunky-dory another, terrorists attack happens. So maybe we should blame his incompetence and cowardice in not taking the fight to these terrorist scumbags.
President Obama said in an interview broadcast early Monday that he understands why Americans are worried about the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), adding that it is important “to keep things in perspective.”
“This is not an organization that can destroy the United States,” he told NPR. “This is not a huge industrial power that can pose great risks to us institutionally or in a systematic way. But they can hurt us, and they can hurt our people and our families.”
Obama blamed the media in part, for fears, saying that in the past month, “all you have been seeing, all you have been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you.”
“The media is pursuing ratings, this is a legitimate news story. I think it’s up to the media how they want to cover this. There is no doubt the actions of ISIL are designed to amplify their power and the threat that they pose,” he added, using the administration’s preferred acronym for the terror group.
So we guess while he’s on his lavish Hawaiian vacation we’re still subject to him nonstop? Meanwhile, the guy who told his brain-dead supporters to get in people’s faces now wants to be Mr. Conciliation.
On the recent college protests about race, meanwhile, Obama said students are free to disagree with speakers invited to campus, but should not try to “shut them up.”
Yeah, a little late for that.
