Washington DC (Storch Report) — A vote for Hillary Clinton will give America four more years of President Obama, only worse.
The primary responsibility of the president of the United States is to protect its citizens and the nation in which they live.
Only 30 percent of Americans surveyed in a recent Gallup Poll approve of Obama’s handling of the enemy, ISIS.
But Hillary in a debate of Democratic presidential candidates Saturday night thinks Obama’s doing just fine: “We now finally are where we need to be. We have a strategy and a commitment to go after ISIS which is a danger to us as well as the region, and we finally have a UN Security Council resolution bringing the world together to go after a political transition in Syria.”
In an interview with NPR, prior to his departure for Hawaii on another of his multitude of vacations, President Obama launched a defense of his strategy against ISIS making “no apologies,” he said, for wanting to target terror groups “appropriately and in a way that is consistent with American values.”
This was said as though we can trust that he understands America values, which has not been demonstrated in the past seven years he has been in office. He makes “no apologies” for himself, but he sure makes them for America.
He says about ISIS which he calls ISIL, “This is not an organization that can destroy the United States,” he said, nor is it a “huge industrial power” that poses great risks to the US “institutionally or in a systemic way. But they can hurt us, and they can hurt our people and our families.”
Obama defends his strategy in a rather peculiar way. Since Sep. 11 2001, 45 people have been killed in the United States at the hands of Islamist extremist-inspired terrorists, and 48 have been killed in domestic terrorist attacks, according to a count from the New America Foundation. This conveniently leaves out 3, 000 killed on 9/11 and hundreds of early responders who are still dying as a result of their rescue efforts on that tragic day. He also believes that fear is being fueled in part by the media.
While Obama contends that ISIS is a JV team and they are contained, he must mean they are contained on this planet and not yet in outer space.
After Clinton made her remark supporting Obama’s strategy, her campaign stood by her comments arguing that the UN resolution is a positive step, but this is clearly at odds with public skepticism.
She also alleged, with no evidence, that ISIS is circulating videos of Trump’s comments about Islam and it is recruiting more radical jihadists, which should give her more of the Pinocchio’s she is collecting along the way of her campaign.
It is apparent that Hillary lives in the same quixotic, pertinacious, progressive, liberal world of Obama.
