I'm not trying to be disrespectful when I use Bill Clinton's line "It's the Economy, Stupid!" with a current twist. The original phrase was coined by a United States president and aimed at another president (George H.W. Bush).
Now, our current president has said something that deserves the same rebuttal.
On September 11, 2014, Barack Obama uttered the following words in a prime time television address:
“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.”
ISIL is not Islamic? ISIL is not a state? He's wrong. Deadly wrong.
It's the Islamic State, stupid.
