Feinstein: Obama Is 'Too Cautious'

Sep. 1, 2014

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein about Barack Obama’s admission that “we don’t have a strategy” for ISIL in Syria: “The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years. So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet? Doesn’t that project weakness from the White House?” It’s unusual for the Leftmedia to be so blunt about their guy, but it’s an indication of just how foolish Obama’s remarks were. Feinstein didn’t completely take the bait, replying, “Well, I mean, I know what you want me to say. But I’m not going to say it in that sense. I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious. Maybe in this instance, too cautious.” Feinstein went on to call ISIL a “major varsity team,” as opposed to Obama’s dismissal of them as “JV” earlier this year, and the California senator warned that ISIL is “extraordinarily dangerous and they’ll kill with abandon.” A stopped clock is right twice a day.
