It occurred Sunday on his show while talking with the Weekly Standard’s William Kristol.
Stephanopoulos: “On the bigger questions, Bill Kristol, it struck me how quickly this has all moved. From ISIS being a minor threat, the president talking about it several months ago as the ‘junior varsity,’ to now ‘an imminent threat,’ the words of Chuck Hagel, to the United States. And I guess I wonder, is there a danger here of over-reacting?”
Kristol: “I wish there were, but I think the fundamental danger remains under-reaction...”
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: “Amazing. After months of President Obama hemming and hawing so much so that even some prominent Democrats have become frustrated with his limited action against a dangerous threat, Stephanopoulos channels the concerns of the far-left who are afraid Obama might actually do something substantial.”
Rating: Three out of five screams.
