‘Knives are out’: Hawaii Dem faces backlash for taking on Obama over ‘Islamist’ extremism

February 27, 2015

She was Hawaii’s golden girl after winning a seat in Congress with support from top liberal groups, but now that Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has been critical of President Obama, her political reputation in the bluest of blue states is taking a hit.

That isn’t stopping the twice-deployed 33-year-old Army veteran from continuing to challenge the president, her home state’s favorite son, over his refusal to identify terror groups like the Islamic State as driven by “radical Islam.”

“Every soldier knows this simple fact: If you don’t know your enemy, you will not be able to defeat him,” Gabbard told FoxNews.com. “Our leaders must clearly identify the enemy as Islamist extremists, understand the ideology that is motivating them and attracting new recruits, and focus on defeating that enemy both militarily and ideologically.”

    Wow, she is too good looking, to be a Dem.

  • LCFisher says:

    I think she probably identifies herself as a “conservative democrat” Most democrat voters are conservative and just don’t know it. (the ones that get elected; not so much) We have many elected Republicans that are not conservative at all. They still are Republicans, they are referred to as RINOs. (Republican In Name Only)

        Well, I guess because you have never lived in Texas that gives you the right to be ugly! I don’t remember saying anything about “your state”! We who live here are quite happy with the State of our State, where the Democrats have not won a state-wide election since 1990, and “we” intend to keep it that way! Have a good life!
