Lowry: Admin's Refusal to Say 'Radical Islam' Is 'Insulting & Childish'
Fox News polls released tonight show that Americans are increasingly worried about Islamic terrorism.
The polls found that 64 percent of Americans believe that the threat from Islamic terrorism is increasing, but 53 percent say they disapprove of Obama on terrorism. About half of respondents say that the Obama administration has mostly failed to make the country safer.
Democratic campaign veteran Mark Hannah and National Review editor Rich Lowry weighed in on the polls and Islamic extremism tonight on “The Kelly File.”
“The fact is if you have terror groups taking over large swaths of territory in the Middle East, we’re not safer,” Lowry said, adding that the plan to fight ISIS “is at best extremely tentative.”
“The administration’s refusal – increasingly ridiculous in recent days – to even say the phrase ‘radical Islam’ is insulting and childish. How stupid do they think we are?” Lowry asked.
Lowry argued that Obama wanted to “roll up the War on Terror” and said the president really cares about free community college and clean energy.
“You can trivialize community college and you can trivialize clean energy, but Americans on a day to day basis […] they care a lot more about if their kid’s getting a good education or if their cousin is gonna get employed than whether or not they’re gonna be killed in a terror attack,” Hannah fired back.
