Republicans Question Obama’s Terror PolicyAt a news conference, in what would be called a cavalier attitude President Hussein Obama signaled he understands the stakes on terror policy. When asked about releasing classified memos he said, "Ultimately I will be judged as Commander in Chief on how safe I'm keeping the American people."While Obama was in Trinidad Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) said, "It was a irresponsible for the President to be seen kind of laughing and joking with Hugo Chavez, the anti-American president of Venezuela." Being dismissive of his critic Obama responded, "It's unlikely that as a consequence of me shaking hands or having a polite conversation with Mr. Chavez that we are endangering the strategic interests of the United States."
