(USA Features) Freshman GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado blamed President Joe Biden’s “weak leadership” for a series of crises at home and abroad that appear to be mounting, including the border surge, weak jobs recovery, the Colonial Pipeline hack and the Israel-Hamas conflict.
“Weak leadership is the cause of all of these crises,” she told “John Solomon Reports” podcast. “Everything that we’re seeing from the crisis at the southern border, from our infrastructure being hacked, from what’s going on in Israel – Hamas would have never tried this with a strong leader in the United States of America.

“Israel is our ally, and unfortunately, because we have weak leadership right now, they’re paying the price for it,” she added.
Reports have said that Hamas has launched more than 1,000 rockets at Israel, most of which have been intercepted by the Israel Defense Force’s advanced missile defense system Iron Dome.
“We have real issues that need to be addressed and problems that need to be solved, and we’re not seeing that with Democrat leadership,” Boebert, who pushed House Democratic leaders to allow her to carry a concealed handgun on Capitol grounds, added.
Boebert went on to argue that House Republicans are attempting to resolve these crises even though they are not in the majority in either chamber of Congress.
“I had my Protecting American Energy Jobs Act, and that reverses Biden’s executive orders on our energy,” she told Solomon. “And look what happened when this pipeline was hacked. We should not be in a state of emergency over one pipeline in the United States of America.
“I have a great alternative: Let’s get the Keystone XL pipeline going. And so, you know, I’m happy to partner with (fellow GOP Rep.) Chip Roy and lead on energy issues,” she added.
