Tom DeLay appeared on Newsmax Prime yesterday, where he declared that President Obama is a coward who has “surrendered to ISIS” and so Republicans need to dedicate themselves to putting pressure on Obama and the Democrats to launch a full-scale war against ISIS.
“We have a president that is feckless, that is incompetent, that has no idea what he’s doing,” DeLay declared, “and Congress has to say it, Congress has to stand up.”
“If I was there,” he continued, “I would suspend all legislation for the rest of the year …. and focus on going to war and eliminating ISIS and go to the American people in their districts and in their states, explain what’s going on here, explain what has to happen, show them a president that is a coward and stand up for the people when they rise up. First place I would go is I would go to every state that has a Democrat senator and every district that has a Democrat House member and I would physically move my members into those districts and start holding town meetings and hang Obama around these Democrats and weaken their resolve to support this horrible strategy of Obama’s. Then you can build a pressure cooker that might force the president to do the right thing.”
