Watch How Seemingly Annoyed Obama Reacts to CNN Reporter’s Tough Islamic State Question at G-20 Summit
Jason Howerton reports: President Barack Obama appeared visibly annoyed following a reporter’s tough question on his administration’s strategy to combat the Islamic State following the deadly terror attacks in Paris.
“Why can’t we take out these bastards?”
— CNN’s Jim Acosta
After noting that Obama once called the terrorist group the “jayvee team” and claimed to have them “contained,” CNN’s Jim Acosta asked bluntly, “Why can’t we take out these bastards?”
“I just spent the last three questions answering that very question. I don’t know what more you want me to add. I think I’ve described very specifically what our strategy is, and I’ve described why we do not pursue some of the other strategies that have been suggested.”

“The details coordinate to make sure they don’t cross paths. She, unlike Hillary, is very nice to the agents. She’ll bring cookies.”
In the book’s official Amazon description, it says that the woman “shows up to be with Bill every day while the likely future presidential candidate is away.”
“Agents say that it’s a business relationship,” he told the talk radio station. “It’s not a marriage at all.”
“It’s a total fake, like everything else about Hillary,” Kessler added. “It’s just a big show and a scam.” Read the rest of this entry »
