Earlier this week I wrote about how liberals fixate on symbols instead of results. So rather than bombing Islamic State terrorists, their supporters, and their oil wells into dust, our most liberal president ever, Barack Obama, instead is engaged in symbolism to show how "tough" he is on terrorism. A few days after the San Bernardino jihadi murders, Obama made a "rare" Oval Office speech. On Monday he made a "rare" Pentagon visit. And today, the day before leaves for a two week Hawaiian vacation, Obama stopped in at the National Counterterrorism Center, where I learned such presidential visits are, wait for it, "rare."
These actions killed no terrorists but it did provide Obama with some photo-ops.
Symbolism: Obama's ISIS fight includes "rare" Oval Office speech, "rare" Pentagon visit
