Marsha Blackburn Gives Incoherent Interview On ISIS

Interviewed by CNN's Ashleigh Banfield, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) was absolutely incoherent regarding fighting ISIS. Naturally, the Republican representative said that President Obama should be more aggressive, but could not define what that entails. Banfield pressed her to be more concrete: “I hear you, but I’m not sure I understand what you’re saying, though. What’s more aggressive than 47 tomahawk cruise missiles, four dozen aircraft, 200 pieces of ordinance, about 150 weapons with precision-guided munitions, all in just two days? You’re saying the president needs to use ‘more force’ and be ‘more aggressive' using what?” After more evasive comments from Blackburn, Banfield asked, "If the airstrikes and the campaign that you’re seeing right now isn’t aggressive enough, in your words, do you want to see American boots on the ground? Is that the aggression that you’re looking for?” Blackburn refused to answer. Banfield concluded, “This is a very simple question for a Congresswoman to answer.” Not if that Congresswoman is Marsha Blackburn. Next time, she'd better go with Hannity. Watch:
