As I've stated many times on this blog, the most fundamental responsibility of any government is to protect its citizens, not, for example, redistributing wealth. Which is why I support the position of my governor, Bruce Rauner, and other Republicans who want to at least temporarily block the resettlement of Syrian migrants into the United States.
Speaking of his GOP opposition yesterday, Obama said, "At first, they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of 3-year-old orphans. That doesn't seem so tough to me."
Obama, the unpresidential mocker, famously dismissed the Islamic State as a "jayvee team." As for the Republican candidates being "too scared" of liberal debate panelists, remember that one clown, CNBC's Carl Quintanilla, asked a presidential contender about fantasy football.
What about Obama? He hasn't been interviewed by anyone from Fox News in nearly two years--and that was when he sat down with Bill O'Reilly before Super Bowl 48 on the Fox broadcast network. It's been seven years since Obama appeared on Fox News Sunday.
Obama: What are you scared of?
Oh, one in five Syrians says that ISIS has been a positive influence in their country.
