Republican Texas Congressman Michael McCaul joins the Insane Clown Couch to complain about an imaginary problem with President Obama's ISIL strategy.

September 16, 2014

Steve Doocy begins today's Obama-bashing segment by griping that President Obama is now revealing our anti-ISIL strategy, merely two weeks after all the Fox cohorts and "experts" were complaining he had no strategy. So if he reveals something to satisfy the Right Wing Chickenhawks, he is wrong simply because he is a Democratic President who happens to be the most radical president we've ever had. Not only the folks at Fox, but the very same Congressman, Texas Republican Michael McCaul was on Fox and Friends roughly two weeks ago saying President Obama does not have a strategy.

His biggest complaint is that we are at war with ISIS and THIS president should take the fight to ISIS. Now the president is doing precisely that. So what's the complaint this week? The idea that we're not going to have other Arab nations to fight this battle in Syria is "irresponsible." The only problem with that assertion is that it is absolutely false and Secretary of State Kerry confirmed that local Arab states were definitely an integral part of our coalition. In fact,
ministers representing Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates offered their support.

So McCaul decides to ignore the facts, as is de rigueur at Fox, and they get all worked up over their own imaginations. Shocking!

McCaul said he personally "spoke with the Prince of Jordan" last week and was told he was willing to put his troops in Syria if your government would let him. McCaul is the chairman of the 113th Congress' House Committee on Homeland Security, the same group that is conducting costly Benghazi Hearings once again, so I guess he can do whatever he wants without the president's consent? There are ten Arab countries that have agreed to this, but the couch geniuses today went on ad nauseum on this false premise.

We've heard horror stories about ISIS coming over the Texas-Mexico border, the astute Brian Kilmeade claims. Of course, the Texas Congressman knows best. Republicans, aside from the 9/11 terror attacks, know how to keep us much more safe than the Black President.
