Over the weekend several high-ranking and influential Republicans and Democrats went on the important national media shows to criticize the Obama administration’s misguided foreign policy plans.
Chris Christie told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Obama had “no credibility” when it came to ISIS. In fact, Christie said that Obama is “often wrong, never in doubt” on ISIS!
ISIS doesn’t seem to be concerned about civilian casualties, Jake. We need to get real and bring our allies together and bring rules of engagement to take on ISIS in a significant and direct way. Obviously the president is wrong when he said on Thursday of last week that ISIS was contained. The next day the attacks started in Paris. So this administration has no credibility in giving us any assessment of how it’s going. We have the attacks in Mali now. He said al Qaeda was on the run. Obviously that’s wrong as well. He said our borders were secure. That’s wrong. This president has been wrong. When I think back on this administration, the way I’ll think of President Obama is: “Often wrong but never in doubt.”
The Obama team probably wasn’t surprised to get criticized by Christie, but they were likely blown away by the next attack they faced on CBS. The ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation to chide the administration’s approach to fighting ISIS.
