Hasselbeck: Obama ‘Spiked the Football’ in ISIS Speech

Alleging that President Barack Obama’s speech Wednesday night outlining his four point plan to confront ISIS might have been poll-driven, Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck said Obama “spiked the football” about the great job he’s been doing fighting counterterrorism.

“Just a month ago, August 8, the president undermined the ability of moderates that we could be arming in terms of what they could do potentially to defeat ISIS or ISIL,” Hasselbeck said. “To then say no, this is now our plan has Americans wondering why perhaps, some are hoping not, but is this a reaction to recent polling where they don’t believe this president will do what it takes to get the job done.”

“But the president certainly does think he is doing a great job,” Hasselbeck said, before a clip of the speech in which Obama outlined successful efforts against al Qaeda. “Here he is spiking the football, saying we are indeed safer today.”
