Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee reacts to President Obama's Oval Office address on the Islamic State.
HUCKABEE: It sounds to me that the president is more interested in protecting the reputation of Islam than he is in protecting the American people from a very clear threat. It’s the most inexplicable thing for a president of the United States not to want to identify. Today is Pearl Harbor Day. Can you imagine FDR going before Congress and saying, ‘We were attacked yesterday in Pearl Harbor. I really don’t want to talk about who did it, but we just want to say there were terrible people and they were thugs.’ Well who was it, Mr. President? ‘Well, we don’t want to get into – I don’t want you to have any bad feelings.’ The Japanese! And he did say that! That’s the point. Identify your enemy. Target your enemy. Take your enemy out. Stand for freedom.
