Commander Kirk Lippold, USN (Retired) the former commander of the USS Cole (DDG-67) joined Neil Cavuto on Your World earlier today and offered some sharp criticism of President Barack Obama’s and his handling of the Iranian nuclear threat:
“One time a year, the president has an opportunity to gather with any leader in the world that he wants to discuss the most pressing issues of our time. … Instead of this president taking that opportunity to meet with those leaders face-to-face, he chose instead to a touch-and-go in New York and get back on the campaign trail. I don’t want a politician, I want a president who understands it’s his job to be the president up until the day he is either out of office or re-elected,” said Lippold.
And there it is, the buck stops with President Obama, he can either lead or campaign… He’s chosen to campaign for almost his entire presidency. Stop and think about it, can you name one issue that he’s actually lead on?
Neither can I.
