This is beyond politics

Tyler (KETK) — Imagine a family vacation: Bag packed, kids in the back of the car, wife all set. You get to the interstate and say "where are we going?" Such is the president's plan on dealing with ISIS.
There is contradiction everywhere. You have the vice-president, whom I really worry about, out there with hair in his face yelling "we'll follow ISIS to the gates of hell."
Really? In this case, where is hell?
The president is traveling abroad. He's said everything from we'll wipe ISIS out to we'll just manage this.
The president's state department and press folks look like deer in headlights trying to explain what this means. I don't think they know.
Now, even high profile Democrats are saying he needs to do something-- like Diane Feinstein and others. They realize this ain't the junior varsity.
Even Al Franken, senator from Minnesota, is asking for help in Minnesota because two ISIS fighters came from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
The DOJ has 40 investigators right now in Ferguson, Missouri, and we have no one looking into Minneapolis-St. Paul? Is this the new ISIS recruiting station?
The Department of Homeland Security, which is just another incompetent branch of government, has lost track of 6,000 foreigners who came here to go to school on a visa.The problem is they never showed up to class and the schools -- from what I can find -- never turned them in. By the way, many were taking classes in beauty school and horse shoeing.
This goes beyond red and blue or liberal or conservative. This is about all of our safety. The anniversary of 9/11 is coming up and all the president wants to do is campaign.
We all have two more years of this, and this is dangerous.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
