    It's not hard to call former Iranian terror leader Qasem Soleimani a terrorist. But Democrats are making it look like neurosurgery. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) nearly had a conniption before finally admitting that Soleimani, the guy who helped orchestrate deadly attacks on U.S. troops and was planning more, was a terrorist.


    At a recent campaign event, Tedra Cobb, the progressive New Yorker who is running against conservative incumbent Rep. Elise Stefanik, a group of voters asked Cobb why she had refused to call Soleimani a terrorist.

    Cobb's attempt to answer the question WITHOUT using the word 'TERRORIST' was described as 'brutal' and 'embarrassing to watch':

    "I don't think that there's any debate about who Soleimani is, or what he has done," Cobb said as she started to nervously fumble through her response. "Let's be clear on that. I don't believe there's any debate."

    She proceeded to extremely unclear and left room for debate.

    "We know that he has killed American lives, Americans, and others," she added. "So I don't believe there is any debate there."

    Confused attendees shouted back that she still hadn't said the word. She stared at her aide for help, and he said, "He's a terrorist," while she nervously nodded."



    DURING the event Cobb was unable to muster the ability to form the word 'Soleimani was / is a TERRORIST'...however, AFTER the event, after being called out by Stefanik on Twitter, 'COBB' responded by declaring, "Of course Soleimani is a terrorist. This isn’t up for debate"...leaving some to wonder if the person who tweeted the response was actually COBB or one of her campaign staff members...

    Obama, a Democrat, had no problem designating Soleimani as a terrorist. He just didn’t have the onions to take him out. I suspect because he didn’t want to upset his people.....err I mean Muslims.

    I would like to agree with you, but I believe if Barry really believed Soleimani was a terrorist he would have armed and supplied him....OH WAIT - what am I thinking?! Barry gave Soleimani and Iran TONS OF CASH through his own personal Treaty, more than enough to pay for those rockets fired at US troops and for the surface-to-air missiles that took down that airliner! Good call!

    :p

    It would be because some Dems are hideously anti-American.

    Today's Democrat Party is closer to Lee Harvey Oswald than to John F. Kennedy.

    Because some Republicans say soldiers are not terrorists?
