Huckabee Rips Obama's 'Arrogant, Troubling, Cheap' Response to Paris Attacks
Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee appeared on "Fox and Friends Weekend" today to discuss his new campaign ad, which blasts President Obama's response to the Paris terror attacks.
Huckabee called out Obama for acting as if he has the moral authority and everybody else is simply wrong.
"I just find that arrogant and I find it troubling. And I also find it a very cheap way to keep from having a legitimate discussion about proper policy of dealing with radical jihadism," Huckabee said. "You don't have a discussion when you say, 'Look, I’m right, you're wrong. End of discussion.'"
Huckabee said whether it's the Syrian refugees program, ObamaCare or gun control, Obama suggests those who disagree with him are just not as strong as him morally and don't have the same virtue and character that he does.
"I think a lot of Americans truly resent that," Huckabee said.
As for the president comparing Syrian refugees to the pilgrims, Huckabee said it's one thing to come to America because you're escaping tyranny, but it’s another to come to America because you want to create the tyranny of a caliphate. He said that we, as Americans, have the right and responsibility to distinguish between the two.
Huckabee added that wherever in the world that there is human plight, American relief agencies are on the forefront of helping people.
"If you want to know who's the first to show when there's a problem anywhere in the world, it's always Americans," Huckabee said. "It's the American people and their generosity who always show up and deliver the help when people are hurting."
