-- and his running -- are.
-- to foreign policy.
From all the -- seen and -- -- -- to take us back to an Arab blustering and -- the cost America so dearly.
After all you don't call Russia our number one enemy.
Not all kind of Russian.
Unless you're still stuck in the Cold War mind -- You might not -- You're ready for diplomacy would Beijing if you can't live in the Olympics without insulting our closest ally.
A -- -- and.
That it was tragic.
To end the war in Iraq.
But he won't tell us now we'll end the war in Afghanistan.
-- -- and I will.
It was to some -- what we heard from President Obama and several other high profile Democrats last night as they went after governor Romney on foreign policy today.
The president's senior campaign advisor Robert Gibbs pulling on you know the same line of attack he said.
Something that didn't get a lot of attention this week that there was an op Ed published Ani Washington paper was signed by four former secretaries of state.
Condoleezza Rice James Baker George salts and Henry Kissinger the all praise the governor's foreign policy positions and said he is ready to lead America on the world stage.
Former US ambassador to the UN and Fox News contributor John Bolton.
Joins us live and -- I ask you about this you know governor Ronnie has not served in the national position he hasn't served even as a senator who would be looking at intelligence every day.
Is it a fair criticism to say he's not ready.
Now I think it's.
Utterly without merit you know Barack Obama is hardly the person to talk about who's experienced and who's not when it comes to taking the oath of office as president.
At a market experience and he's had three and a half years sitting in the chair is to learn from -- something from the job.
Which he obviously has -- do governor Romney's career.
As giving him ample experience in international affairs you know the Salt Lake City Olympics is not just.
Pictures on the television you had to deal with over a 102 point 830.
National Olympic Committees in most other countries controlled by their governments.
International sports Federation's national sports federations dignitaries.
It I used to deal with the Olympics during the bush 41 administration -- -- -- sometimes that made the UN general assembly look like a sandbox and you add to that governor Romney's experience.
At the global private equity firm Bain Capital.
He he's got plenty of experience and even more important he's got more judgment than President Obama and Vice President Biden put together.
-- these -- former secretaries of state in their piece that they wrote said we cannot be strong militarily politically or diplomatically and lest we are strong economically and they say.
That's why they're backing Mitt Romney -- is a better understanding of our keeping our financial house in order here.
It really impacts of what were able to do around the world as relates to other nations.
Well I think there's been a real disconnect in the Obama presidency that that article -- points that you can't have a strong American presence internationally.
Without a recovering US economy which we don't have and by the same token.
You can't have sustained economic prosperity here at home.
Unless there's a strong American position around the world to keep the lines of trade investment communications travel and the like open this is something this connection this relationship between the strong America internationally in a strong domestic economy.
Is something I think is very important something governor Romney's stressed throughout his campaign.
Somebody else is weighed in on the whole foreign policy Obama verses Romney debate is Vladimir Putin.
He now says that he thinks it will be better for US Russia relations if President Obama is reelected -- -- says.
If Romney gets the nod he'll be willing to work with him.
What do you make of him weighing it.
But it's got to bring that up if you didn't ask because I think it's clear that President -- has listen very carefully to president Obama's conversation with former.
Russian president -- began one President Obama in an unprecedented act for an American president negotiating on his own behalf.
Not on our countries to have.
Said the -- you get just give me some more space until after this election.
Then I can be more flexible of course potent once Obama why why should anybody be surprised that that -- mean that endorsement by put in his practically all you need to know on national security affairs to vote for Romney.
And just very quickly how different do you think a Romney presidency and foreign policy would be should he and Paul Ryan went.
They get be very different I think that governor Romney reflects the Ronald Reagan peace through strength approach.
As contrasted the Obama lead from behind approach.
Who believes American strength as provocative as provocative in fact it's American weakness we've got a very provocative president right now.
Right ambassador Bolton always great to have your insights thank you sir for -- and today.
