Good For Her

From Fox News:  She was Hawaii's golden girl after winning a seat in Congress with support from top liberal groups, but now that Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has been critical of President Obama, her political reputation in the bluest of blue states is taking a hit. 
That isn’t stopping the twice-deployed 33-year-old Army veteran from continuing to challenge the president, her home state's favorite son, over his refusal to identify terror groups like the Islamic State as driven by "radical Islam.”
“Every soldier knows this simple fact: If you don't know your enemy, you will not be able to defeat him,” Gabbard told “Our leaders must clearly identify the enemy as Islamist extremists, understand the ideology that is motivating them and attracting new recruits, and focus on defeating that enemy both militarily and ideologically.”
Gabbard has been hitting this message for weeks now, putting her at odds with many in her party who toe the line that the Islamic State should not be associated with Islam. 
Gabbard called "mind-boggling" Obama's refusal to associate ISIS with the Muslim religion, even though the terrorist army is emphatic it is enforcing a strict interpretation of Islam. 
"[Obama] is completely missing the point of this radical Islamic ideology that’s fueling these people,” she said;.
Her comments have stunned political experts in her home state.
“It is very, very unusual for a junior member in the president's own party to criticize him,” said Colin Moore, assistant professor at the University of Hawaii Department of Political Science. “Especially for someone considered a rising star in the party. This is a serious gamble for her.” 
Michael W. Perry, of Hawaii's most popular KSSK Radio's "Perry & Price Show," said that "while Gabbard is correct in her 'emperor has no clothes' moment, she may have lost her future seat on Hawaii's political bench." He said she's committed "a mortal sin" by challenging Obama, and "now the knives are out.".
Bob Jones, columnist for the Oahu-based Midweek, wrote a scathing piece suggesting Gabbard should be challenged in 2016. "I take serious issue when somebody who's done a little non-fighting time in Iraq, and is not a Middle East or Islamic scholar, claims to know better than our President and Secretary of State how to fathom the motivations of terrorists, or how to refer to them beyond the term that best describes them -- terrorists," Jones said.
Actually, a person with the brain of a mouse would know more about Islamic terrorism than Obama and Kerry;.
This again shows how depraved the democrat party is: You cannot challenge the president without being ripped to shreds by the democrat so called leaders.
But it again shows that the democrats and liberals believe that women should follow the president, whether the moron in chief is right or wrong.
And if this were a male senator, the media and most democrats would have ignored the story but because it is a democrat woman, they believe she has to worship Herr Obama;.

  1. "Some of the comments that have been uttered about Islam do not reflect the sentiments of my government or the sentiments of most Americans. Islam, as practiced by the vast majority of people, is a peaceful religion, a religion that respects others. Ours is a country based upon tolerance and we welcome people of all faiths in America."

    That's one quote of many. This is a national policy and and position of the United States, not just Barack Obama.

    You know me, I'm an atheist. I think all religion is hooey. But what is going on here, is attempting to have a policy that does not turn into a holy war against the entriety of Islam, but rather against those extremists who use Islam as an excuse for their terrorism.

    Think of it this way, Christians who blow up abortion clinics, or are members of the Ku Klux Klan or who hold signs that say "God Hates America" and "God Hates Sodomites" or any other extremism done in the name of Christianity? They're not your typical Christians. Right? Same deal.
