There’s little doubt that President Obama views “global terrorism” as a persistent annoyance, rather than the actual threat expressed by other world leaders, and that obvious disconnect is even more acute in how Obama frames his understanding of what his role is, as the Commander-in-Chief, and what the American people expect of their leader.

Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” President Obama was grilled by Chris Wallace regarding his response to terrorism.

Referencing an interview Obama did with The Atlantic, Wallace said: “It says you think that the fear of terrorism–among politicians, among the press, among the public, is exaggerated. And then the article goes on to say ‘Obama frequently reminds his staff that terrorism takes far fewer lives than handguns, car accidents, and falls in bathtubs do.’ Do we make too big a deal of the terror threat?”

The President avoided the question, pivoting to several subjects, including saying that certain presidential candidates think “we should carpet bomb innocent civilians,” a reference of course to a statement that Ted Cruz made during one of his campaign speeches.

However the issue isn’t any one particular strategy, the issue is simply one of leadership, and Obama’s lack of leadership!

In short President Obama is more of a threat to our national security interests then any terrorist organization on earth, simply because he lacks the skills to lead, in that Obama is more comfortable within an academic environment of abstracts and theories, rather than confronting the realities of global terrorism.
