Rush Limbaugh says that Barack Obama sounds like a “defense lawyer” when he talks about terrorism committed by “militant Islamists.”

Tuesday on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” Limbaugh commented on Obama’s speech where the president said ISIS fighters are “not religious warriors” but are “thugs” and “thieves.”

Limbaugh argued that Obama went “into this protracted two-and-a-half minute segment on why it is irrelevant to call ’em militant Islamists and why he doesn’t use the term because it doesn’t any strategic value, you know what the guy sounded like? … It sounds to me like it’s the way defense lawyers talk.”

“You know, when there’s a suspect, you got a defense lawyer saying, ‘Well, there’s no conclusive evidence here. We’re still looking for a motive. We haven’t found the right motive.’ Obama comes out after every one of these things, every one of these events, and Obama ends up sounding like defense lawyers speak on behalf of their clients,” Limbaugh argued. Obama “doesn’t reflect the national mood about these things. It’s not even close.”

“And of course everybody knows the reason he won’t referred to them by using the term ‘Islamic,’ ‘militant Islamists’ or whatever. Because he has yet to admit that that’s what we’re up against, and if he were to actually go out and use the term and identify who it is we’re actually up against, it would totally force a complete change in strategy,” Limbaugh insisted. “Do you realize Obama’s strategy in dealing with this has nothing to do with who these people are? As far as he’s concerned, they’re just a bunch of ‘militants’ that got hold of some guns, as in Fast and Furious.” (RELATED: Obama: ISIS Fighters Are Not ‘Religious Warriors.

“In his world, there’s nothing that sets these people apart from any other band of bad guys or criminals. And that’s how he talks about them, and that’s what makes me suspicious. There’s clearly a difference. These people announce their intentions, they announce their objectives, and then they go fulfill them,” Limbaugh said.

“They call in the middle of their murderous rampage! They call 911 and tell everybody what they’re doing and why, and we still say, ‘We have no reason to suspect that there was anything behind it. We investigators are still looking for motive.'”

“Obama comes out, and it sounds like rather than condemning, he sees the need to deflect suspicion away from them,” Limbaugh said. “That’s the way it sounds to me.”

“It’s just off, folks. It just doesn’t make any sense. It never has made any sense. America is under assault. 9/11, and it’s the same thing. And it’s not just Obama, it’s the whole Democrat Party.”
