Rep. Duncan Hunter: Obama Better Suited as Mayor Than President

By    |   Wednesday, 18 Feb 2015 08:04 PM

President Barack Obama isn't competent enough to understand the fight against Islamic terrorists and would be better suited as a city mayor than commander in chief, Rep. Duncan Hunter told Fox News.

Hunter, a California Republican, told Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" that Obama's speech Wednesday on fighting extremism showed his lack of knowledge.

Obama addressed law enforcement about not profiling or conducting unnecessary surveillance on Muslims.

"He ought to be the mayor of a city talking this way to law enforcement," Hunter said.

Hunter said the Islamic State group (ISIS) wouldn't exist if Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey and Obama had not withdrawn all troops from Iraq.

"They literally caused this problem," Hunter said, adding that it is Dempsey who is now briefing him and other members of Congress in hearings about how to fix the problem.

"I shouldn't be talking about the commander in chief of the United States, as a U.S. congressman, saying let's get someone else to lead this charge who really understands the enemy and understands the threat that we face and knows how to kill these guys," Hunter said.

It isn't hard to kill ISIS militarily, Hunter said, but it will be if Obama continues to avoid acting.

"When they spread out and … are able to get in places like the U.S. and places like Italy and move throughout Europe freely, it's going to be really hard," he said.
