Lieberman: Obama Not Reassuring Scared Americans Who Now Need a Leader

Lieberman: Obama Not Reassuring Scared Americans Who Now Need a Leader

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” former Democrat-turned-independent U.S. Senator from Connecticut, Joe Lieberman said President Barack Obama’s poll numbers are low because he is not reassuring a frightened American public that has woken to the threat of ISIS.

Lieberman said, “I think the public began to lose confidence in the president on foreign policy because they didn’t feel he was leading and for a while they were happy with that because they wanted to stay out of problems, but then Russia, ISIS, Iraq, the whole combination has scared people. Now I thought the president’s speech to the nation about a week and a half ago was going to turn that around and I am afraid it didn’t because there were too many of what you talked about before and not just what we are going to do to protect you, Mr. and Mrs. America, but here is what we are not going to do, and I don’t think that was particularly reassuring to the American people, and it was reassuring to our enemies over there. So that’s why I say, Mr. President, order the U.S. air force to begin striking ISIS at least in Syria right now and stop saying what we are not going to do. Let the enemy worry about that.”
