Gardner: Blame Obama, bomb the terrorists

The presidential speech last night on ISIS/ISIL is drawing muted support from Republicans, with Rep. Cory Gardner among the first to weigh in from Colorado with a blame-Obama, bomb-the-terrorists statement.

“The Islamic State is a radical terrorist organization that presents an imminent threat to our nation,” says a statement released by the Cory Gardner for Senate campaign. “The President’s mishandling of our nation’s foreign policy and his failure to formulate a clear strategic vision to confront these threats has led us to the tragic series of events unfolding across the Middle East and the world.”

“While President Obama has voiced his support for destroying this radical terrorist organization, he must follow through with tangible, tactical action that meets this shared goal. I support airstrikes against the terrorists threatening America and I am committed to working with those who are serious about protecting our national interests and destroying the Islamic State.”
