Back -- the -- segments are we ask or tell Charles Krauthammer it's like 22.
Important parts of the president's news conference this evening troubles to this is how much.
-- economy down here aren't.
IA in case people just -- -- I think it was a most foreign press conference I've seen in my 37 years of covering the news.
I don't think he said anything I don't think he knows what he's talking about I think it was pure gibberish am -- wrong.
I watched the beginning of the show and I'm -- you're great you're beyond agitation you're on the -- of haven't apoplectic reaction there had -- been -- it started in Washington.
I would hosed you down with a value spray I -- I needed to to do that.
And you know in fact -- -- was the worst it was a -- press conference since the evening invention.
Of the radio wireless level of the cathode ray to.
However you -- to two important points.
Number -- regarding Syria.
Obama actually said in this press conference about the Russians.
I am confident that they do not condone.
The Russians are providing the helicopter.
Gunships that our conduct corners and we don't -- support -- would -- -- food music killer.
-- hey did you know that Obama.
But it's the -- Obama takes his conciliatory.
Tone and he had something else to say about the Russians -- he said.
You know I'm not quite prepared that they are signing on to our idea.
Of a transition where I -- steps down.
What in God's name is he taught -- about the Russians are opposing that the Russians are blocking that the Russians are supporting -- -- They block all resolutions to bring him down they have blocked all resolutions for an arms embargo.
They're sending had a helicopter gunships they've announced that they and they -- any aircraft equipment.
So this Syrians can shoot down anybody that in the future.
Who might want to do it.
Rescuers some kind of supporter of the Syrian people from the air.
And we've just had the news that the Russians are preparing to send three ships.
From their Black Sea port.
To the Syrian port of targets where the Russians have a base of naval facilities that put -- has revived.
For their first time since the Cold War.
And we have a president who says I'm not sure they're signing on -- now to our program this is a challenge.
To the United States into the west.
This is a thumb in the -- to the United States.
And this is the Russians planting their flag.
Saying Syria is our property.
Our client our state and we're gonna do is we wish.
And the United States as a president who not only.
Says anything to oppose that -- to critique it.
But -- we're working with that because I'm confident we can you don't condone the massacres.
And it really it was offensive.
And what's his second thing you picked up.
The second thing I've picked out as the subtlety.
Of the gibberish he offered on Europe.
Which was the only thing he can do because that's.
The fact -- didn't have anything to say -- offer he's the perfect reflection.
Of the decline of American influence everywhere.
They'll -- three and a half years I think it's a bigger decline in US influence in all areas of the world in the Middle East.
In Europe economically and every other way than any three and a half years since the end of the Second World War.
This is a president who speaks for the United States so weekly.
That nobody cares what he says the Europeans -- with Angela Merkel says about the good Greece and Spain and Italy.
They don't give a damn what the United States -- because it is irrelevant.
In the same way in the Middle East if you are -- western -- oriented ally.
And you see the United States get out of Iraq without leaving behind.
Any strategic relationship.
Any residual American influence where you see the United States by the admission of its own.
Director of National Intelligence impose sanctions so week up until now.
That by our own admission it hasn't affected -- nuclear program.
Whatsoever and standing by -- we have Wall Street well I don't -- can't -- the United States everybody should read the journal's editorial today all right Charles thanks for clearing out for me I appreciate.
