RCP Transcript:

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the reason Obama had to give that speech, and you really have to ask yourself what did he achieve, that he was told he had to show that he thinks this is a problem. His problem since the day he took office, he never wanted to fight the war on terror. He abolished the term. I think deep down he believes the war on terror was a gross overreach.

He said that in his speeches when he went abroad in 2009. He talked about America overreacting. And in a sense that we have provoked this. He says, if you talk about the Muslims in a bad way, that recruits for ISIS. Guantanamo is a recruiter for ISIS. When the fact is that the cruelty and the savagery and the ideology is a recruiter for ISIS. But he locates the origin of all that recruiting in what we do and he thinks, therefore, the cure is to do as little as possible. It’s an insane strategic view of the world, but he actually holds it. And I think that’s why the American people are so scared. He’s our leader and he believes that?

Transcript Excerpt:

RALPH PETERS: He keeps talking about don’t be afraid, don’t give in to your fears.

Mr. President, we’re not afraid, we’re angry. We’re pissed off, we’re furious. We want you to react, we want you to do something. He’s afraid. He’s a total pussy, it’s stunning.

We, the American people, who he does not know in any intimate sort of manner, we want action. We want action against Islamic State.

This is a president who doesn’t want to hurt our enemies.

This is a president who cares more about thugs in Guantanamo or thugs in Ferguson, MO, than he does about law-abiding American citizens and their right to live in safety and peace.
