War Mongering Easy When You’re Not Commander in Chief, Obama Says
Politico – President Barack Obama Tuesday used his first press conference in four months to explicitly attack his Republican opponents for the “casualness” of their rhetoric regarding war with Iran.
“What’s said on the campaign trail, those folks don’t have a lot of responsibilities. They’re not commander-in-chief,” he said.
Obama’s press conference came on the afternoon of Super Tuesday, as 10 states hold Republican presidential primaries, and he used the opportunity to remind voters that he’s a president serious about global threats from Iran and continuing to improve the economy.
