AS JOE BIDEN COMES TO NEW HAMPSHIRE, BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES WEB VIDEO: "NO STRATEGY"
MANCHESTER - On the same day that Vice President Joe Biden campaigns for Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in Portsmouth, the Brown campaign released a new web video that highlights the incoherent foreign policy of the Obama Administration.
The 30-second web video opens with a scene from the 2012 presidential campaign of Biden praising President Obama’s “strength and steadiness” on foreign policy. Biden goes on to say that the Presidenthas a “clear vision for America’s place in the world.”
Those comments are then juxtaposed with President Obama's admission last week that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for containing ISIS.
Jeanne Shaheen, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, continues to be a rubberstamp for the Administration's weak and indecisive foreign policy, voting with President Obama 99 percent of the time. Yesterday, the Union Leader editorialized that Shaheen showed weak leadership on this issue, noting that she has failed to articulate a plan for "dealing with the thousands of terrorists already on the ground in Iraq and Syria."
Today, while the Vice President campaigns with Senator Shaheen, Scott Brown will host a foreign policy town hall in Hudson, marking the sixth town hall of the "New Hampshire Speaks" series to discuss the ongoing threats facing our nation, with a focus on stopping ISIS.
Last Friday Brown called on Congress to pass a bill that would immediately strip any American who fights alongside ISIS of their passport and citizenship.
TRANSCRIPT FOR "NO STRATEGY":
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: President Obama has made those hard calls with strength and steadiness.
And the reason he’s been able to is because he had clear goals and clear strategy how to achieve those goals
He had a clear vision and has a clear vision for America’s place in the world
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t have a strategy yet.
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: I am very optimistic about Iraq. I think it is going to be one of the great achievements of this administration.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t, we don’t have a strategy.
