Negative -- segment tonight a recent column.
Charles Krauthammer said the President Obama return to bust.
Of Winston Churchill to the British embassy in Washington wow.
The Obama administration lashed out saying -- wasn't true the bus remains a White House but there's an interesting twist to this story.
Joining us have a watching Fox News analyst Charles Krauthammer so this is the tale of -- busts this could be Agatha Christie here.
Well what have -- wise to bolster their charge that I was.
Spreading a -- -- what I said was a 100% solves.
They showed a picture of Obama.
Showing David Cameron two years ago a bust of Churchill in the White House residence.
So that was to back up -- story that it wasn't send back.
To the British embassy it was actually just moved in the White House.
But that was extremely deceptive and we found out by asking the British embassy.
As soon as -- way it has signed released this attack on me and the embassy said no the -- is in the residents of the British ambassador.
And has been since the beginning of the Obama administration.
And has -- British press reported at the time.
What it happened is that after 9/11.
Britain had loaned to bush.
A -- of Churchill as a show of solidarity.
For one senator -- uses the term expired.
They extended the loan for a second term and then -- Obama won the presidency.
The British government offer to extend the loan to Obama but the Obama administration said -- -- it was returned to the British embassy.
What you saw in that deceptive picture was.
Another Churchill sculpture.
That had been given to the United States in the Johnson administration.
Had been married for fifty bullets at one that you were talking about the matter at all had been there for fifteen years who has kept in their collection that is an -- -- -- visit back story.
Some people believe the President Obama doesn't like Winston Churchill because of British colonialism.
In Africa particularly Kenya.
So that he didn't want -- -- look at Adam.
Because -- like cup committee said exactly is it that that that's what's been around.
Now your point and even bring in an -- the -- deal was why.
My point was I don't really into people's minds if I wanted to I would -- remained in psychiatry.
All I know is that the British reaction.
To the return of the virus.
Was extremely negative.
And it felt like it was an insult.
That this was a gift after 9/11 to show his solidarity of the British had soldiers serving -- us at the time in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Really standing shoulder to shoulder and this was a slightly library and so now three years after it happen.
Well that was very puzzling this has been reported.
A -- dozens of places -- Newsweek CBS ABC so why now why me.
And the reason I think is because these other outlets that had written this would no protests from the White House.
Are not exactly unfriendly to Obama.
But here was a chance to bring home the scalp.
Of the persistent critic of the president and that's why they jumped on their -- do you know why do you bring it up in a column why did you arrive Friday I was I was writing about the Romney trip.
And that his choice of venues Britain Poland and Israel where three countries that felt slighted.
Barack Obama policy I say there's always little context you had a reason to do it.
Well I was giving examples.
The perceive lost life so exactly all right now and -- right.
So you wind you'll ride and -- this guy -- down five free actually sent you an email that said.
I take your criticisms here is Jim Charles -- take your criticism seriously you are correct.
All right there was clearly an internal confusion.
Don't know intention to deceive -- about certain things take place they said it was sorry that you were right and they were wrong.
I accept the apology I must admit.
I was utterly surprised that I got it I'd written in my column that I thought the national -- in the World Series.
Before I'd see an apology and there was naturally Palin's pick -- if you -- and they -- gonna -- -- -- now I know exactly now how -- -- put my money -- now -- as far as Romney's trip to Europe is concerned.
Now he's got his guys curse and -- reporters.
I don't know that means that a good strategy cursing at reporters is is accurate.
Well isn't exactly -- currency -- where it's.
I mean if I can say it on the air one of the reporters.
One of his people said shouted to persistent questioner I would remind readers.
Our listeners and viewers -- eight years ago almost to the day.
Teresa Heinz was being pestered with questions from a reporter from Pittsburgh.
She said shove it was asked about I didn't set I don't regret having said it and Hillary Clinton.
Was asked about -- next morning on television and her response was we see if I got this right.
Good free -- girl.
Go girl okay -- so we know it isn't exactly something that's unheard of at all.
Well it certainly Johnny Paycheck.
Doesn't apologize for take this job and shove it exactly 1977.
The one hit wonder.
But I think that Mitt Romney needs.
He's got to be a little bit more open with the press I know they're out to get -- he knows they're out to get him.
But I when you in my eyes the governor is be a little bit more accessible and I think that would try to be better going forward for him.
My wrong I agree with you -- we showed we showed on special report.
The questions -- there were trailing -- At a solemn cited poet and the court almost ridiculous.
How god of the gaps government big gaps right I want you an honest question -- -- -- respectable reporter how about the gas right.
Look we all know with the press is in what you're trying to do but Ryan let you know is actually I know especially our.
-- they're trying to use it against him and I he -- and I think on the British stuff I don't believe he made up.
A mistake when he spoke about the Palestinians even know the Palestinians don't you know your opinion on all kinds of I don't think -- -- you have siren thing you did pretty good job over there they had the polish.
And the polish flag was a triumph I thought all right -- thanks very much --
