That's Gonna Leave a Mark

President Obama just called the Republican cowardice explosion over Syrian refugees a sign that they were afraid widows and orphans:
President Obama is lashing out at Republican politicians who oppose allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S., accusing them of being "scared of widows and orphans."

Speaking to reporters Wednesday morning in the Philippines, Obama scoffed at attempts to block refugees following the Paris terror attacks as "political posturing" that "needs to stop."

"Apparently they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America," Obama said of Republicans. "At first, they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of three year old orphans. That doesn’t seem so tough to me."

Obama apparently directed his ire at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who said Tuesday he opposes allowing people fleeing the conflict in Syria to resettle in the U.S., even "orphans under five."

"We are not well served when, in response to a terrorist attack, we descend into fear and panic," he said. "We don't make good decisions if its based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks."
What is going on with the refugees right now is cowardice, naked pants-soiling cowardice, and it's nice to see Obama calling it out.

The hillbillys left the gates open for all the little nastys, prior to 9 - 11. Then of course they used the hysteria to justify another repubicon president. Now? After promoting usofa action towards eliminating isis...and trying to arm syrian rebs..the shit rolls downhill..dealing with american, russian, syrian, isis and on....moving looks like the best deal the citizenry have. I support obama in this..too bad for the refugees its an election year.
