Rand Paul: 'Maybe it's time for a new president'

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) over the weekend seized on President Obama's admission that he was unsure what to do to confront ISIS, saying it was a sign Washington needed a drastic change.

"If the president has no strategy, maybe it's time for a new president," he said at the annual Americans for Prosperity summit in Dallas.

On Thursday, Obama said in a White House press conference that "we don't have a strategy yet" for dealing with ISIS in Syria. Though Obama was speaking specifically about whether he'd decided to take increased military action in the country, the comment, when taken as a general statement on his handling of ISIS, came off as horribly tone deaf and gave his critics ample ammo.
