There’s a less than stellar review for President Obama’s Oval Office speech on the ISIS threat from Congressman Rodney Davis.
The Greene County Republican said he had hoped to hear of a stronger, more comprehensive strategy to defeat ISIS.
Davis says a greater dual approach aimed at destroying them abroad while protecting Americans at home needs to be pursued. He fears the President’s lame duck status doesn’t help matters
“Who this president listens to, I don’t know, but it seems to me, the perception is, no one around him can tell this guy he’s doing something wrong, and that’s pretty typical, I think, in second-term presidents, where you have folks who are most familiar with the president going off to other jobs and other opportunities,” says Davis.
“But this is a time in America’s history where we need somebody at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to step up and say, enough’s enough, America comes first.”
The House has passed legislation that Davis says is designed to prevent ISIS from infiltrating the Syrian and Iraqi refugee program.
Last month, the House passed the American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act to ensure comprehensive background checks are conducted on every Syrian and Iraqi refugee seeking admittance into the U.S.
