The Clinton-Obama ISIS Plan Rejected By Top Dems

- December 9, 2015

YESTERDAY, CLINTON CONCEDED SHE AND OBAMA SHARE THE SAME FAILED STRATEGY TO DEFEAT ISIS

Yesterday, Clinton Said That Obama's ISIS Strategy "Is Close To Mine." QUESTION: "Anything you would have said differently or disagreed with respect to President Obama's address [inaudible]?" CLINTON: "I was really happy that he made the address. I thought it was very important for him to address the nation. And you know, I think his take on what needs to be done is close to mine. I think we have to intensify and accelerate and really get the world behind us and that's why I've laid out my own views on this. But I was very pleased that he addressed the country because people are scared." (Hillary Clinton, Remarks With The Concord Monitor Editorial Board, 12/8/15)

Senior Democrat Lawmakers Are Lining Up To Voice Their Frustration Over Obama's Lackluster Address To The Nation And The Need To Hear More On The Administration's ISIS Strategy

Many Of Obama's Democrat Allies In Congress Say That Obama Is "Undermining Americans' Sense Of Safety" By Not Being "Aggressive Enough" In Confronting ISIS. "Many of President Obama's Democratic allies in Congress say they do not believe he is being aggressive enough in confronting the terrorist threat of the Islamic State after last week's attacks in California, undermining Americans' sense of safety, especially among voters who will decide the party's fate in elections next year." (Jennifer Steinhauer and Michael D. Shear, "Obama's Plans To Stop ISIS Leave Many Democrats Wanting More," The New York Times , 12/8/15)

Obama's Address To The Nation On The Strategy To Defeat ISIS Left Democrat Lawmakers "Wanting More." "And Mr. Obama's address to the nation Sunday - which several congressional Democrats said was an idea they pushed - left them wanting more." (Jennifer Steinhauer and Michael D. Shear, "Obama's Plans To Stop ISIS Leave Many Democrats Wanting More," The New York Times , 12/8/15)

  • "Democrats In Both Chambers Said They Needed The President To Send A Message To Voters That He Is In Firm Command Of The Fight Against Terrorism." "But Democrats in both chambers said they needed the president to send a message to voters that he is in firm command of the fight against terrorism. That will require Mr. Obama to do more - and to explain his actions more clearly, they said." (Jennifer Steinhauer and Michael D. Shear, "Obama's Plans To Stop ISIS Leave Many Democrats Wanting More," The New York Times , 12/8/15)
  • "Democrats Say, The Frustration With Mr. Obama Is A Continuation Of The Fruitless Search For The Prize Fighter Trapped In The Body Of The Law Professor, A Persona That Has Dogged Him For The Better Part Of His Presidency." "To some degree, Democrats say, the frustration with Mr. Obama is a continuation of the fruitless search for the prize fighter trapped in the body of the law professor, a persona that has dogged him for the better part of his presidency. It is a transformation that Mr. Obama's supporters say is unrealistic." (Jennifer Steinhauer and Michael D. Shear, "Obama's Plans To Stop ISIS Leave Many Democrats Wanting More," The New York Times , 12/8/15)

Ranking Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA): "When You Interrupt The Nation With An Urgent And Unscheduled Statement From The Oval Office, Or The White House, There's I Think An Expectation That The Address Will Contain A New Approach Or A New Element." "'When you interrupt the nation with an urgent and unscheduled statement from the Oval Office, or the White House, there's I think an expectation that the address will contain a new approach or a new element,' said Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee." (Jennifer Steinhauer and Michael D. Shear, "Obama's Plans To Stop ISIS Leave Many Democrats Wanting More," The New York Times , 12/8/15)

  • Schiff: "I'm Concerned With The Pace Of Our Progress…That's A Policy Concern, But It's Also A Concern, I Think, Certainly In The Political Arena, From The Presidential Race On Down." "Mr. Schiff said the president was right to resist calls from some Republicans for a full-scale ground assault in Iraq and Syria, a prospect that Mr. Schiff said would ignore the lessons of the country's long war in Iraq. But he urged Mr. Obama to reconsider his staunch opposition to using American air power to create a 'buffer zone' inside Syria. 'I'm concerned with the pace of our progress,' he said. 'That's a policy concern, but it's also a concern, I think, certainly in the political arena, from the presidential race on down.'" (Jennifer Steinhauer and Michael D. Shear, "Obama's Plans To Stop ISIS Leave Many Democrats Wanting More," The New York Times , 12/8/15)

Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA): Obama's ISIS Strategy "May Not Be Robust Enough." "'The president is trying to lay out a plan that is thoughtful,' said Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California. 'It may not be robust enough.'" (Jennifer Steinhauer and Michael D. Shear, "Obama's Plans To Stop ISIS Leave Many Democrats Wanting More," The New York Times , 12/8/15)
