A new poll reported by your buddies at Bloomberg News says most Americans want to stem the flow of Syrian refugees into the U.S. because they don’t believe the federal government is doing enough to protect the homeland from an attack like we saw in Paris last week.
Fifty-three percent of U.S. adults in the survey, conducted in the days immediately following the attacks, say the nation should not continue a program to resettle up to 10,000 Syrian refugees. Just 28 percent would keep the program with the screening process as it now exists, while 11 percent said they would favor a limited program to accept only Syrian Christians while excluding Muslims, a proposal Obama has dismissed as “shameful” and un-American.
Only a handful of governors say they trust the fed’s mind-reading prowess enough to welcome without question Syrian refugees within their state borders.
Hickenlooper, ever the Obama boot-licker, is one of those governors.
Hick was asked by Mike Rosen this week to explain his position on the refugees, some of whom are implicated in the Paris attack, others who are accused of bombing a Russian commercial airplane, and still more who are killing Christians.
Complete Colorado transcribed Hick’s response, which was an incomprehensible ramble, so this was the best we could isolate:
We’ve got a much deeper problem than whether — because there was a bombing in, in France — suddenly we’re gonna dramatically change all our policies.
Hick’s reasoning that U.S. policy should not be reexamined to respond to terrorist threats is mind-numbingly naïve. It would be funny, if it weren’t so serious. And a little dangerous.
