IF IT WERE UP TO ME, I’D ABOLISH THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. STILL, HE HAS A POINT: First DHS chief: Obama needs to put ‘commander in chief hat on.’

The first secretary of Homeland Security said on Sunday that President Obama is bungling the fight against global terrorism.

Tom Ridge added that Obama is not working hard enough to stop the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“Mr. President, you need to put your commander in chief hat on,” Ridge said of Obama on “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York.

“Press conferences outside the Pentagon don’t cut it,” he told host John Catsimatidis. “I want my president to lead, not just talk about it.”

“It’s about time the president calls it what it is – Islamic terrorism at its worst,” Ridge added of ISIS.

Ridge argued on Sunday that Obama is missing the threat ISIS presents.

“First of all, they’re not JV – they’re pretty significant,” he said.

“They’re a formidable force,” Ridge added. “They’re barbarians and they’re evil.”

In Obama’s worldview, barbarians can’t be evil. Only the West can do that.
