According to President Obama, it’s not his fault that he doesn’t have a winning strategy to defeat ISIS. It’s the media’s fault.
According to The National Review:
It’s always the messenger’s fault.
When President Obama sat down with Steve Inskeep from NPR shortly before jetting off to Hawaii for his annual year-end luau, he gave both supporters and critics a lot to chew on heading into a new year in regards to everything from free speech on campus to the Republican primary field.
But the main focus was on his continuing strategy, or rather, lack thereof, for combating domestic terror attacks. He took the occasion to once again blame the messengers in the media instead of the faulty strategy coming from his administration. When asked what the public might be missing about his strategy, given that a majority of them disapprove of it, Obama replied simply that news coverage hasn’t been very fair to him:
“Well, I think what’s fair is that post-Paris you had a saturation of news about the horrible attack there. And ISIL combines viciousness with very savvy media operations. And as a consequence, if you’ve been watching television for the last 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.”
It’s always the blame game with the White House. Obama never takes accountability for his actions, or the damaging consequences of his progressive policies.
The President needs to re-attach himself to reality and recognize that this isn’t a PR problem, it’s a radical Islamic terror problem.
