LinkIf it is true that the best defense is a good offense, President Obama should be celebrating in the end zone now. Obviously furious over criticism that his anti-terror policies are weak and that the Orlando slaughter proves it, he went on a televised tirade to let America know he’s mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.
He laid waste to a field of straw men, cable-TV pundits and the always-evil “partisan rhetoric,” by which he means anyone who disagrees with him. It was a striking display of personal anger and pent-up grievances — and a total failure of leadership during a national crisis.
Over and over again he asked why using the term "radical Islamist" matters. It matters because it would be reassurance that the President cares about defending America and defeating our enemies. It would tell us that the President means business. Like George Bush, who stood on the rubble of the World Trade Center and said that the people who did this would hear from us soon, said with obvious heart-felt emotion, in contrast to Obama's cold, bloodless pronouncements.
No, the only time the President gets emotional is when he's talking about himself and trying to defend his policies from well deserved criticism. How embarrassing that his policies have turned out to be obvious failures! And it really gets his ire up.
No, every time America is attacked by radical Islamists the President and other leftists jump to defend Muslims. Let me say that again: Every time America is attacked by radical Islamists the President and other leftists jump to defend Muslims. That's their first priority, their first impulse. Can you see what's wrong with that? Do they care about America? Do they love America? Do they want to defend Americans? Do they really?
Tell us that you care about America, Mr. President. Tell us that you are more angry at our Islamist enemies who are killing our friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens than you are at Republicans and Donald Trump.
