The president has again demonstrated that he is completely unqualified to be commander in chief. His press conference on Nov. 16 was pathetic. He showed more passion when he was annoyed with questions he was asked than when condemning those who attacked Paris.

It is also a disgrace that he intends to allow Syrian refugees into the U.S. They will be vetted as diligently as the countless thousands who have streamed across our border with Mexico. As usual, his press conference was a lecture from a former college professor who is completely clueless or uncaring about ISIS. Instead, he continues to support and lift up Iran. The Iranians want to control the Middle East, and the president is enabling them.
