Barack Obama Has Tense Exchange With CNN’s Jake Tapper Over why he won’t say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ After Asked By Gold Star Mom
HOW COULD AMERICA EVER ELECT A PRESIDENT TWICE THAT WAS SO WRONG ON TERRORISM …
Watch the video below and listen to Barack Obama’s twisted logic in answering the question as to why he does not use the term, ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ It sounds more like he cares about not offending Muslims than he does identifying who our enemy is. By some how not saying radical Islamic terrorists that means that not all Muslimes are terrorists. Really? Actually, by stating our enemy is radical Islamic terrorists differentiates radical Islam from the rest of Islam. Then at the 5:50 mark of the video, Jake Tapper confronts Obama and it gets testy. The laugh line has to be when Obama says, I don’t want to interject partisan politics in this.” Are you kidding, that’s all Obama has done since he took office is to play partisan politics and divide this country.
The only thing Obama has unified anyone about was the bi-partisan over-ride of his veto on the 9-11 lawsuit bill.
President Barack Obama sparred with CNN host Jake Tapper on Wednesday night in a tense exchange over Obama’s refusal to use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.”
During a CNN town-hall event focusing on the US military, Gold Star mother Tina Houchins asked Obama why he wouldn’t use the term.
“The truth of the matter is that this is an issue that has been sort of manufactured, because there is no doubt, and I’ve said repeatedly that where we see terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or ISIL, they have perverted and distorted and tried to claim the mantle of Islam for an excuse, for basically barbarism and death,” Obama said.
“These are people who kill children, kill Muslims, take sex slaves — there’s no religious rationale that would justify in any way any of the things that they do,” he added.
Obama later seemed to allude to Trump as he continued to answer Houchins’ question.
“I’ll just be honest with you: The dangers where we get loose in this language, particularly when a president or people aspiring to become president get loose with this language, you can see in some of the language that we use, in talking about Muslim-Americans here and the notion that somehow we’d start having religious tests in who can come in the country and who’s investigated and whether the Bill of Rights applies to them in the same way,” Obama said.
Trump has often said while campaigning that the US should administer some sort of test to immigrants to determine whether they have terrorist sympathies.
Tapper interjected to point out the allusion to Trump, and the exchange between him and Obama grew tense.
Here’s how it played out:
Tapper: Just to interject …
Tapper: You were clearly talking about the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, just then. You think his …
Obama: No, I wasn’t. But …
Tapper: You weren’t?
Obama: No, I …
Tapper: Well, you just said …
Obama: I would just say this, Jake, because …
Tapper: … aspiring to this office …
Obama: No, but it’s not unique to the Republican nominee. And again, I’m trying to be careful. We’re on a military base. I don’t want to insert partisan politics into this. I think that there have been a number of public figures where you start hearing commentary that is dangerous because what it starts doing is it starts dividing us up as Americans.

Kirstie Alley Blasts Barack Obama for continued playing golf than dealing with Louisiana Floods … There is a reason why they calling him the Golfer in Chief.
Former Cheers actress Kirstie Alley blasted Barack Obama for his carefree attitude of playing golf on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods that resulted in 13 deaths and many more still missing. Alley took to Twitter to remind voters how Mr. Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina. It shameful, simply shameful that a president would be more consumed with his golf game than actually caring about the lives of American citizens. But of course that was difference for the MSM, Democrats and Obama because it was a Republican president. Just curious, where is “Black Lives Matter” as well? I guess we really know what matters with these folks after all.
Barack Obama’s decision to carry on with his holiday on Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods has come under fire from Kirstie Alley.
The actress best known for her appearance in the popular TV comedy Cheers has used Twitter to remind voters how Mr Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina.
She ridiculed Mr Obama for playing golf while swathes of Louisiana were underwater, adding that she thought George Bush waited too long to visit New Orleans following Katrina.
Of course I would rather play golf than go to Louisiana
Mr Obama has said he will visit Louisiana within the next few days. Mr Trump and Mike Pence, his running mate, visited Louisiana last week and were photographed helping deliver aid packages.
Obama will get to Louisiana in his own sweet time after he has played 10 rounds of golf while on vacation and his 300th round of his presidency. So glad this president has a sense of priorities. Golf more important than the little people. The man simply does not care. We have seen what his real priorities are.
IMAGINE THAT, WORRIES OF RACE RELATIONS REACH NEW HIGH UNDER OBAMA …
According to a recent Gallup poll, concerns and worries regarding race relations are at a new high in the United States. Under Barack Obama, the first elected black president, race relation have gotten worse. Go figure, seeing that he was pretty much elected due to white guilt and the misguided and naive notion that some how electing an individual because of their skin color would solve all the ills of the past and make things better. What did Martin Luther King Jr. say about it not being about the color of ones skin, but “the content of their character?”
But this is what happens when an ignorant and apathetic electorate votes for what might be the most divisive president of the 20th and 21st century. A note to Obama, you could have learned a lot from how South African president Nelson Mandela dealt with racism and a divided nation. Sadly, you are not even close to the character of Mandela. This is what happens when you elect a community agitator, not a leader.
More than a third (35%) of Americans now say they are worried “a great deal” about race relations in the U.S. — which is higher than at any time since Gallup first asked the question in 2001. The percentage who are worried a great deal rose seven percentage points in the past year and has more than doubled in the past two years.
Concern about race relations over the past two years has increased among Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, and blacks and whites. But the gap between the groups who were already most worried before 2015 — Democrats, liberals and blacks — and those less worried has not shrunk, and in some cases has widened. Of particular note is the 53% to 27% “worried” gap between blacks and whites, up from the 31% to 14% gap between blacks and whites in the 2012-2014 combined polls.
UNREAL … Barack Hussein Obama Says of Mass San Bernardino Shootings by Two Radicalized Islamists … “It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know, It’s also possible this was workplace-related”. (VIDEO)
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, THIS MAN TRULY EITHER HAS A MENTAL DEFICIENCY OR A HIDEOUS AGENDA … WHY CAN’T BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA JUST SAY ITS TERRORISM?
When you have a president who cannot even see or admit to terrorism when it smacks him in the face, Houston, we have a problem …
It is unbelievable that this president can not just call terrorism, terrorism. During a presser seen below, Barack Hussein Obama refused to call this for what it was, radical Islamic terrorism as he stated, “It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know. It’s also possible this was workplace-related.” REALLY? Hmm, so an act of workplace violence consists of body armor, GoPro cameras, an apartment that was said by authorities to be a bomb making factory and an stockpile of guns an ammunition to arm those right wing extremists you are so found of calling domestic terrorists.
A duh, well it could be workplace violence and ah, duh, maybe it was Republicans …
No Barack, your first order of business was to demand more gun control and it was Democrats that said, it was not to offer prayers to the families. Do you might want to get your talking points straight next time. How sad is it that we have a president that is so quick to rush to judgement and call certain actions racist with no facts whatsoever, but when it comes to obvious acts of terrorism, he is cautious and plodding? At this point, when it comes to the safety of Americans and this president fails to recognize the obvious … one has to say he is derelict in his duty as President of the United States.
President Obama sought to assure Americans that investigators will get to the bottom of the San Bernardino shootings, even as he noted that investigators know little about what motivated the shooting spree that killed 14 people and injured at least 17.
“It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know. It’s also possible this was workplace-related,” he said. “There may be mixed motives in all this, which makes the investigation more complicated. But rest assured, we will get to the bottom of this.”
Obama noted that the attackers were “equipped with weapons and appeared to have access to additional weaponry at their homes, but we don’t know why they did it.”
Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?
In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.
As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.
Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.
A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.
The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.
Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.
