[Ed. – One good backstabber deserves another.]
Democratic Michigan Senate candidate Rep. Gary Peters staunchly defended President Barack Obama from criticism on ISIS at a black political event, but criticized Obama on ISIS on local Michigan television and radio stations.
Though Obama has recently unveiled more fragments of a developing — but still far from completed — plan for military intervention in Iraq and Syria, it should be noted that Peters slammed lawmakers for their supposed political motivations in criticizing the president on ISIS, just weeks after criticizing the president on ISIS.
Peters spoke at the Michigan African American Alliance Breakfast in Detroit, hosted by the Michigan Democratic Party, on Saturday.
“The president addressed the nation with this threat from ISIS in the Middle East, “Peters said. “ISIS is a significant threat to us, I agree with the president that we have to be very very concerned about this. We’ve got a group of individuals who have engaged in murderous activity not just with U.S. citizens but also citizens in their own countries… And the thing that I just hope that we can do as a country is now come together. We’ve got a significant foreign threat. And unfortunately there are folks in the other party, they want to use this as some sort of political wedge, some sort of attacks on the president.”
