Every week viewers vote for your choice on line in this our Friday lightning round.
And this week again Charles pick one we put it on there and it just when it's we're back with the panel Charles Krauthammer your pick.
Once again I'm humbled by the confidence that the voters supported me.
And I -- they opposition from not running negative and so my -- equestrian position.
Yesterday so question.
Obama today signed a bill that was passed -- -- a -- congress supporting Israel and giving it extra money for.
The iron dome anti missile defense system which Israel -- Question -- this -- anybody who's pro Israel.
To support Obama in November and the -- the correct answer is no unless he's been in a coma for three and a half years.
Obama is simply here continuing.
The military cooperation and we've had with the Israel for decades.
But on the life and death political issues stopping Iran's nuclear program which is -- than ever.
To completion to pressing Israel to return to the 67 lines and to the way he's insulted and marginalized.
Israel's elected leaders having his record on June poor ones that -- change anybody clearly aimed at.
Deflecting the attention around he'll get in Israel tomorrow.
-- he signed a bipartisan bill.
A lot of support in congress I did happen.
A couple days before a day before Mitt Romney headed yes as the Jewish and another thing that's going on as the Republicans who organized.
Stronger or more specific than usual effort to peel away Jewish.
Voters from the Democrats.
I think the correct answer Charles question is the two most pro Israel groups in America are Jewish voters and evangelical Christians.
The vast majority -- -- kill Christians are gonna vote for the Republican in the vast majority of Jews are gonna vote for the Democrat as per usual.
Bad -- I'm not sure bill signing on defense pact on the Friday the summer heading into.
Olympics is gonna change anybody's vote I mean this is -- small part of a much bigger debate about which candidate is really.
Committed to Israel and both of them are taking every opportunity president -- governor -- to do that.
You know strangely coincidental that this would happen as the governor heads to Israel you know over the weekend.
But I think -- the president won this the Jewish voting bloc in this overwhelmingly last time there's a concern at that margin could be smaller particularly in a state.
Like Florida where every every bit makes a difference.
OK chip away.
This controversy over mayors who said they wanted to block.
-- -- restaurants because of the support for traditional marriage the biblical as the owner said interpretation of the family.
What about this in the push back we're seeing bad.
You know we quoted a guy in our story referring to the -- -- president saying.
You know it's his opinion he's entitled under security -- And I think that that's probably the prevailing view a lot of people -- mean you have -- prominent and successful business owner.
Whose religious beliefs -- -- and not to open on Sundays.
And in this case to speak about traditional marriage you have communities who thought that that's insensitive or not respectful to diversity and so you have this debate -- -- Even Michael Bloomberg who has had his own outreach as far as sugary drinks and other things thought this was over the line.
For those knives and just stated chiefly for the first time about -- -- -- in the -- average.
-- -- was terrific and on.
But I guess what I would add to this as Mayor Menino of Boston accent at all he was the first one to lash out.
-- chip away and when he realized what kind of a terrible precedent that's -- set to subject all incoming business to an ideological test.
He quickly admitted that he made a mistake and I think we can all agree with them.
Okay we're going to -- with that promise reaction from Charles on bust gates Charles wrote in his column.
Today the President Obama started his presidency by returning.
To the British embassy the bust of Winston Churchill.
That had graced the Oval Office will Dan Pfeiffer.
White House communications director put a White House blog post on saying that's patently false -- ridiculous claim 100%.
Quote the blast is still in the White House in the residence outside the treaty room.
-- included a picture of President Obama showing prime minister Cameron.
As -- on the photo dubbed lost and there you see the picture from 2010.
However it turns out there are two busts and the one that was in the Oval Office was in fact return to the British ambassador it's in his residence here in DC.
-- for updated later saying the idea put forward by Charles Krauthammer and others that President Obama returned to Churchill bust.
Or refuse to display the bus because of antipathy towards the British.
It's completely false not saying they got it wrong -- -- Charles.
It's astonishing I mean you double down all he had to say was we got it wrong the first time.
The British ambassador today.
Said that the bus that in his residence is the one that was returned -- Obama.
Came into office exactly as I had written a 100% as I had written.
So not being able to denied he pretends that it never happened.
And he says the idea that the Boston -- his return is false.
In any talks about the reason of the -- the will was retired was because of antipathy -- of a talked about antipathy.
He should have arguably has said we've made a mistake there was an old -- in the White House been around for fifty years and we got him confused.
That would have been understandable that would have been -- distorted that would have been honorable but you don't expect it and of these communications office from the White House.
OK that's it for the panel.
