NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd argued that the Middle East will be less stable after President Obama leaves office than it was before he became president on Thursday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”
“The fact is he [Obama] was elected, he was nominated to get the country out of war in the Middle East. There was a promise that his presidency would bring stability to the Middle East, would bring some new opportunities, a conversation with the Muslim world, all of those things. And the fact of the matter is, it’s going to be less stable when he leaves office. Unless something magical happens in the next two years” Todd stated.
He didn’t attribute a specific cause to the stability, saying that some of it was due to “circumstances,” and “misreading of the Arab Spring,” although he added that some of the Middle East’s conflagrations may have happened no matter who was president.
