The administration is blaming its lack of strategy in dealing with Islamic State militants on … Republicans in Congress?
According to the White House, it’s never President Obama’s fault. Here’s the latest example from White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, where he says Republicans aren’t doing enough to fight ‘ISIL.’
Republicans in Congress have failed to do anything to combat ISIL. Here's how they could start. https://t.co/PZMy0FeSMe

@PressSec How about we stop leaving power vacuums in decrepit countries? How about we stop leaving zillions of weapons and vehicles too?

@PressSec Are McConnell and Ryan now Co-Commanders in Chief? You are a real ignorant ass aren't you?

One wondered if Earnest expected members of Congress to take up arms against the Islamic State.
@PressSec I don't know when you last looked at congress, but most don't seem very combat ready. IMHO

And then there was this:
@PressSec From the looks of these tweets, looks like Americans are over this POTUS. Next "non-Dem" POTUS Please. (The Nation has spoken).

It sounds as though people are finally starting to get it.
At various times, the administration has blamed former President George W. Bush for the rise of the Islamic State and the Pentagon for a lack of strategy for dealing with the terrorists.
But congressional Republicans? That’s a new one — and a new low.
