Huckabee: Obama Blew a Great Opportunity to Show Americans He Cares

‘One of the things this president could have done last night was say I’m going to Congress this week and ask them for the authorization to go after ISIS and any form of radical Islam that threatens America’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

 

BRZEZINSKI: "Well, do you think the president said anything of measure last night that was helpful to the country?

HUCKABEE: "Not really. I think he blew a great opportunity. I think he used the Oval office address -"

BRZEZINSKI: "What was the opportunity?

HUCKABEE: "The opportunity was to give Americans reassurance this was a president focused on taking care of us. We're going to do whatever it takes. We know who these people are. We're going after them. This is not the Roosevelt speech the day after pearl harbor. Remember what Roosevelt was able to do and he asked Congress for the authority to go after the Japanese. I'm telling you, one of the things this president could have done last night was say I'm going to Congress this week and ask them for the authorization to go after ISIS and any form of radical Islam that threatens America so that would  have been a call to action."
