By now it’s obvious to all that Barack Obama is more concerned with defending Islam than the United States of America.

Only a President who saw political opponents and not murderous terrorists as the true enemy would have traveled to foreign soil and mocked the opposition party on matters of national security.

After at least one of the Paris attackers has been identified as entering France as a refugee, Republicans exercising common sense demanded a halt to the refugee program.

But Obama wasn’t having any part of protecting and defending the United States.
He calmly described the Paris attacks as a mere “setback.”

But he came alive with vigor in a fiery attack on Republicans trying to stop an ISIS infiltration of the West.

As ABC News reports, Obama declared at a press conference in Manila:

“We are not well served when, in response to a terrorist attack, we descend into fear and panic,” Obama told reporters in Manila, Philippines, after a meeting at the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit with President Benigno Aquino. “We don’t make good decisions if it’s based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks.”

“Apparently, they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America,” the president said. “At first they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of 3-year-old orphans. That doesn’t seem so tough to me.”

Republican Congressmen Trey Gowdy, who chairs the Benghazi Select Committee that exposed Hillary Clinton’s secret email server, offered an amazing response.

Reports the Washington Examiner:

“The president says we’re scared of widows and orphans,” Gowdy said at a House Judiciary Committee subcommittee hearing on Obama’s immigration plan. “With all due respect to him, what I’m really afraid of is a foreign policy that creates more widows and orphans.”
“So where maybe he ought to start … is a foreign policy in the Middle East, including Syria, where people can go back to their homelands, which is their preference, go back to their homelands,” he said.
“Maybe he ought to defeat that JV team that you thought you had contained,” Gowdy added. “That would be the very best thing you could do to help people who aspire to a better life.”

Gowdy’s mic drop was perfect because it has long been apparent that Obama views Republicans as the real enemy.
He saved more disdain for Republicans than he did the Paris attacks which he merely referred to as a “setback.”
As Rush Limbaugh noted on his November 16th show, “He got passionate. He took out after Republicans, Republican presidential candidates. He was tougher and more critical on Republicans than he was on ISIS in this speech, but it was clear.”
Contrary to what Barack Obama believes, radical Islam and the failure to confront the threat it poses is the greatest danger our nation faces.
Thankfully Trey Gowdy was there to put the events of the past week in proper perspective.
