President Obama reportedly phoned home tonight to brief federal officials on the security protocols for resettling Syrian refugees in the United States and assured them that American citizens are safe; however, he took a moment to express his anger with those opposed to accepting refugees, calling them “scared of widows and 3-year-old orphans.”

Obama on GOP position on Muslim refugees: "I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric coming out."

Do people really think that stuff GOP guys say is a more potent recruiting tool than drone strikes on wedding parties? Really?

What an insignificant petty little man. He's decimated his party for a generation or more and then lashes out. It's quite breathtaking

Did Obama offer an opinion as to what John Kerry’s comments today did to world opinion?

Well, no one can accuse @POTUS, yucking it up in Manila with salt-water lamp makers, of overreacting to the crisis in Europe.

So while the WH is spinning its call w/ the Governors re: refugees, POTUS is overseas trashing them. WHAT IN THE WORLD are they doing?
