Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton was recently asked about President Obama’s oval office speech which included little in the way of a plan to combat terrorism, and a good amount of discussion about gun control.
Clinton told the editorial board of the Concord Monitor that she didn’t disagree with much of what Obama said, and that her plan to combat ISIS is very similar to Obama’s. Meaning Clinton and Obama share a foreign policy plan that a wide margin of Americans view negatively.

During an editorial board meeting with the Concord Monitor, Secretary Clinton was specifically asked if there was anything she would have “said differently or disagreed with” regarding President Obama’s address to the nation Sunday night about confronting ISIS.
Clinton replied that she was happy with the address and that she President Obama’s strategy “is close to mine.” See below:
“I was really happy that he made the address. I thought it was very important for him to address the nation. I think his take on what needs to be done is close to mine. I think we have to intensify and accelerate and really get the world behind us and that’s why I’ve laid out my own views on this. But I was very pleased that he addressed the country because people are scared.”
A recent CNN survey found 57 percent of Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of foreign policy. And by her own admission, Clinton not only agrees with his approach, but through her failures she helped craft many of the policies that led to the current situation in the Middle East.
A third term of the Obama/Clinton foreign policy of appeasement for terrorists is not what this country needs.
