As conservatives around the country become more and more frustrated with President Barack Obama’s unwillingness to refer to the bloody massacre that took place this past Wednesday in San Bernardino, Calif. as an “act of terrorism” even after the FBI has stated as much, one campaign is taking the issue to the voters. Right to Rise USA, an independent super PAC supporting the candidacy of Jeb Bush, will begin running an ad on Dec. 8 in early-voting states and on cable linking the attack to ISIS.
The ad mocks Obama’s assertion that ISIS is or should be “contained.” In the 33-second commercial, Bush says, “The United States should not delay in leading a global coalition to take out ISIS with overwhelming force.” The clip was taken from a speech given at the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, on Nov. 18, 2015. In the speech, Bush laid out his plan to defeat ISIS.
Wednesday’s rampage started as Syed Farook was celebrating at a lunchtime holiday party with his co-workers from the Environmental Health Services Division of San Bernardino County’s Public Health Department.
