Kurtz: War On Terror Not ‘As Close’ To Obama’s Heart as Gun Control

Screenshot
On Thursday’s “Special Report,” Fox News host and Media Analyst Howard Kurtz stated President Obama has an “intensity” when talking about gun control that “he lacks when he talks about the war on terror” and the war on terror doesn’t seem like it is as close to his heart.” Kurtz said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:00] “I think President Obama today gave a very emotional speech, unfortunately, as you say, he’s had a lot of practice at it, paying tribute to the victims and then also pivoting to gun control. But he does that with an intensity that he lacks when he talks about the war on terror, I think everybody can see that. It doesn’t seem like it is as close to his heart.” (h/t Mediaite) Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
