Schieffer Gushes Over Obama Speech: ‘Represents a Major Change in American Strategy’
CBS’s Schieffer Gushes Over Obama’s ISIS Speech; ‘Now This Represents a Major Change in American Strategy’ (NewsBusters)
After President Obama’s speech on confronting the Islamic terrorist group ISIS on Wednesday night, each of the major broadcast networks offered some brief analysis before returning to regularly scheduled programming. Over on CBS, Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer anchored that network’s coverage and had nothing but good things to say in the few minutes before CBS’s coverage concluded.
Schieffer told the audience that Obama’s speech “shows us a real evolution in where the President was just in the last week of August” when he told reporters at a press conference that “we don’t have a strategy yet” in how to deal with ISIS and particularly in Syria.
