New Hampshire Union Leader: The JV Team: Obama's Unbelievable Admission
Editorial, New Hampshire Union Leader
September 2, 2014
Last Wednesday, the U.S. commander in chief said of the barbarians who are spreading the Dark Ages from Syria to Iraq: “We don’t have a strategy yet.”
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen demurred until Thursday, when she wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew (not to President Obama) urging them to “do everything in your power to disrupt and stop the flow of money and foreign fighters” to IS. She had nothing to say about dealing with the thousands of terrorists already on the ground in Iraq and Syria.
In January, Obama famously called IS the JV team. Last week he showed who the real JV team is. Unfortunately, we are stuck with the team captain for two more years. But we can cut Jeanne Shaheen from the team in two months. If we sent a better squad to the Senate, it would help.
