Is Hillary Clinton trying to distance herself from Barack Obama yet again?
Obama is to address the nation tonight in prime time to speak on issues relating to terrorism and fears, but Democratic Presidential candidate Clinton just stepped on his toes during an exclusive interview on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.
Whatever Obama was going to say, does this mean he has to retool his message or will he continue on course to publicly separate himself from Hillary?
Clinton danced around the question initially but then she changed her tune during her ABC Interview:
“We’re not winning, but it’s too soon to say that we are doing everything we need to do,” Clinton said to George Stephanopoulos Sunday when asked if the United States is winning the fight against ISIS.
“And I’ve outlined very clearly. We have to fight them in the air, we have to fight them on the ground, and we have to fight them on the Internet, and we have to do everything we can with our friends and partners to protect ourselves,” she added.
The Democratic presidential front-runner also said the United States is in “conflict” with ISIS, but declined to declare war, as some of her Republican counterparts have done.
“We are definitely in conflict with ISIS,” Clinton said.
When asked if it was time to declare war on them, Clinton responded, “…I think we need a new update of military authorization, the AUMF [The Authorization for Use of Military Force], which was passed after the attack on 9/11.”
Check out the video exchange:
This woman is beyond contemptible. Why anyone would consider her voice the voice of logical, rational or deductive reasoning is beyond comprehension.
I pray as a nation we can have the mental fortitude to not select someone so vile and prone to litigiousness as to stand for absolutely nothing in a time and age where leadership is paramount for our great nation to move forward.
