Last month, Rep. Mike Coffman wrote on Facebook that Obama is the "real recruiting tool" for terrorists.
The Republican Congressman from Aurora made the comment in response to Obama's claim that the U.S. military detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, known as GITMO, is cited by extremists in recruiting terrorists.
Coffman: "President Obama wants to close GTMO because he thinks it's a recruiting tool for terrorists - the real recruiting tool is a President who seems more concerned about protecting the rights of terrorists rather than defeating them and protecting the American people."
Yet it flew under the radar of Denver media, and Coffman never apologized for the recruiting tool comment.
And judging from a KOA 850-AM radio interview last week, Coffman is standing behind the statement.
On KOA this morning, Coffman said:
Coffman: This president refuses to acknowledge that we are a nation at war not of our own choosing and refuses even to identify those who have declared war on us. ... He says Guantanamo Bay is a recruiting tool for terrorists. What is a recruiting tool for terrorists is having a commander in chief that projects weakness. [emphasis added]
It's one thing to say Obama's policies are a recruiting too. It's another to write that the President himself is a recruiting tool for terrorists. What's Coffman saying?
Does Coffman really believe that the "real recruiting tool" is the President of the United States?
