Republicans hit Obama's revamped counterterrorism plan, say president’s ‘tone-deaf’

Republican leaders on Sunday bashed President Obama’s revamped counterterrorism strategy, saying his plan to end the war on terror is “disturbing” and signals a retreat as Al Qaeda and affiliate terror groups remain dangerous and a continuing threat to homeland security.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham cited a litany of global concerns that threaten America and its allies before attacking Obama’s post 9/11 strategy -- including Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon and the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war.

“At a time when we need resolve the most, we're sounding retreat," Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told “Fox News Sunday.” "We show this lack of resolve, talking about the war being over. What do you think the Iranians are thinking? At the end of the day, this is the most tone-deaf president I ever could imagine."

I guess the red line strategy isn’t working.

He has come right out & said we can “absorb” more [terrorist] attacks. He knows they won’t get him personally, so he Does Not Care.

More attacks will serve his purpose. The sheep will demand more “security” and Bammy will love to accommodate them.

Agreed. It’s even worse than that, however. In Obama’s twisted mind we deserve it. It’s just our chickens coming home to roost.

He's not "tone deaf" - he has the greatest team of demographic data analysts ever assembled - he knows exactly what he's doing and what he is doing is absolutely contra his Oath of Office, contra the expectations of the benighted cretins who voted him into office - twice - and contra the interests of the American People.

And that's exactly what he intends - the shredding of our Constitutional Rights - already well underway, the destruction of our economy though unbridled spending, and the destruction of our American Way of Life.

Welcome to appeasement; welcome welcome to dhimmitude; welcome to subjugation!

Who is going to stop him? The low information voters? The Republicans? If we have to rely on the Republicans to do it, we may be in deep sh--

“Is it terrorism or is it Jihad we are fighting?”

As of now, we aren't fighting Jihad and their terrorists in other countries so Jihad can win, plus we are sending them money to help them win faster.

And, we aren't fighting Hussein and he's running the Jihad here. His goal and the goal of his Muslim brothers is to put the entire world under Muslim control and so far, it's working.
