Potential 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee responded to Obama’s claim that our nations greatest threat is climate change. Huckabee, stating what most consider to be the obvious, said that the greatest challenge facing the United States is ISIS.
Huckabee Says ISIS Beheadings Greater Threat Than Climate Change
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee took on President Obama’s plans to fight climate change, saying that beheadings by the terror group ISIS is a “greater threat to an American than a sunburn.”
“When he [President Obama] said the greatest threat this nation faces … I waited … and then he said … ‘It’s climate change,'” Huckabee, the potential 2016 presidential candidate, said at the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines Saturday.
“Not to diminish anything about the climate at all,” Huckabee said, “but Mr. President, I believe that most of us would think that a beheading is a far greater threat to an American than a sunburn. I wish he understood that we have a real enemy with just long – Islamic jihadism.”
Huckabee said this the day a video purported to show the killing of one of the two Japanese hostages by ISIS in Syria after Tokyo failed to pay a ransom demanded by the terror group that is also known as Islamic State and has gained control over large territories in Iraq and Syria.
President Obama in his State of the Union Address last week suggested that his first six years as president have been a success.
Obama declared that he is stopping the advance of ISIS, he stood up to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aggression, and he prevented Iran from advancing its nuclear program.
However, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell declared that Obama’s “projection of success” against terrorism and Putin “doesn’t match reality.”
