Sen. Ayotte: Obama Only Attacking ISIS to Help Dems in Midterm

Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) told Fox News Sunday that she worried President Barack Obama was only confronting ISIS to help Democrats in the upcoming midterms, and that he would ease up on the Sunni militants after the election.

“I think we have a problem where the president’s foreign policy is being trapped by his campaign rhetoric,” Ayotte said. “I’m very fearful as we look at the current military strategy that it is surrounding the November elections, and he won’t have the resolve to follow through with what needs to be done in a sustained effort to destroy ISIS.”

“Are you suggesting that after the November election, and acting tough and talking tough, that he’s gonna pull back from confronting ISIS?” host Chris Wallace asked.

“I’m very concerned about that, and his resolve in this regard,” Ayotte said.
