This is Lily don't represents texas' first district he says the president's policies are actually doing more damage to our country's credibility then voters no good morning congressman.
Good morning what do you mean -- -- the president's policies are doing damage our credibility.
Well for one thing we turn on our allies like the northern alliance.
That fault for same with us in Afghanistan.
Before this president added so many more troops.
And and they the administration is still on our allies under the bus whether it's in Israel whether it's in Afghanistan whether it's.
Allies in in in Iraq.
We keep turning on those who've been our friends and apologizing.
And trying to pay off those.
-- been killing us and and you guys have been talking about are you better off now.
And I did not realize this -- and until.
Parents of one of our seal team six members it would who was killed.
After this administration.
Out -- seal team six never supposed to do that this administration did.
Put targets on their back.
But those parents of Aaron Vaughn told me that G.
Of those who have been killed in Afghanistan.
Have died in about three and a half years under Obama.
Under bush over seven years 625.
In Afghanistan and -- since Obama took over 1474.
Where -- that 70%.
And when it comes to the wounded -- -- 2638.
Who were wounded under President Bush over seven years and -- Afghanistan.
Have been wounded -- -- -- -- -- where people talking about that.
84% of the people wounded 70% of those killed in Afghanistan of American troops have been under this president's lack of leadership.
And yet you know the American public.
Mostly believes that the Afghanistan war as president was President Bush's war or not president.
Obama's let me show you some poll numbers -- -- alligators want to that I think that these are using these boxes -- which candidate.
Do you trust most to handle foreign policy President Obama gets 51%.
Over Mitt Romney's 38% that's a significant lead.
It is -- he has the complicity in the mainstream media.
And and I don't even remind people that Obama actually -- this in 2000 -- Afghan war the good war.
Haven't got calls a war a good war.
In and especially when he's gotten our troops.
Killed and wounded by the thousands.
He's not only leading from behind these -- and our troops out in front album.
And and over and over our troops from Marcus would -- on down ever said.
It's this president's.
Rules of engagement.
Not even being able to defend themselves.
When they're fired upon.
And that not even be -- able to get call in a gunship that concede those who are killing our seals.
And I can't shoot -- because there might be a civilian in the area.
-- our troops need out or they need to be allowed to do what it takes to win and come home.
Now on the flip side of course -- the American public does give President Obama a lot of credit for.
Issuing -- kill order for bin Laden and forgetting.
-- a lock -- with -- -- the polls that we might charity -- were also asked from from Fox News.
Who do you trust more on national security and once again the president gets a higher number 48% to Mitt Romney's 40%.
Well like me.
I didn't know that this president had gotten had more Americans killed under his watch.
As 70% album in the half the time -- President Bush.
I mean this.
The American public didn't know this stuff thank god for fox where we can get this stuff out in the American public.
May see it and it and unfortunately that's one of them the so much in the mainstream media keeps losing credibility.
But this stuffs gotta get out.
-- George Washington once said.
-- -- used to restraint must be elated they will not be driven and this president keeps trying to drive our troops out in front of him.
That's not leadership.
Well congress senate commerce Texas thanks so much for coming and sharing your perspective.
Thank you so much thanks believe.
