Republican Joni Ernst SLAMS OBAMA Over Lengthy Delayed Release of Sgt. Tahmooressi (Video)

In what can only be described as one the most disgraceful derelictions of duty concerning our military personnel in history, Obama deserves absolutely no credit in the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi from a Mexican hellhole. Greta Van Susteren did far more to gain the Marine’s release than anyone in our government did. Republican Joni Ernst puts the blame exactly where it belongs – squarely on Obama for allowing the wrongful detention of our Marine and his savage treatment while he was incarcerated – all over a wrong turn. where he could not turn around, while having his guns with him – because you know, in Obama’s twisted world, that is a sin that is Fast and Furious.

From Gateway Pundit:

Republican senate candidate Joni Ernst slammed Barack Obama over his response to the imprisonment of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

The US Marine sergeant was released from a Mexican jail this weekend after eight months of confinement. Tahmooressi was reportedly stripped naked, chained to a bed and beaten with a bat during his detention.

Joni Ernst, an Iraq War veteran, blasted President Obama over his hands off approach to Tahmooressi’s detention.

“I am so disappointed that we did not pursue this aggressively. He should have been released a number of months ago. This is just another case of our administration not being pro-active, being very reactive. We’ve seen that with every instance out there. Whether it comes to Ebola, whether it comes to ISIS. Whether it comes to this situation. We have an administration that’s just so hands off, disengaged. We can do better. We have to do better.”

“I am very proud of my military service and we need to take care of those folks who have served honorably. And, in this case we didn’t stand up and pursue this aggressively enough. I fault the president with that.

As of this morning, Ernst has a seven point lead over her Democratic challenger, Braley, in Iowa. It is precisely because of her passionate stances such as the one on Tahmooressi that she has arrived at this tipping point. She’s an accomplished state Senator, an Iraq War veteran and a mom — what’s more she’s a true conservative and has a backbone. Ernst gets it bluntly right on the Tahmooressi release and is right on target to take Iowa, delivering the Senate into Republican hands. Oorah!
