-- both Democrats and Republicans have.
Pointed out that criticism in particular governor Romney and his.
Team and what seems to be an attempt to score political -- has been on both factually wrong.
-- -- -- -- We're told by the media that Mitt Romney spoke too -- the other day we're told that Romney has no foreign policy experience and yet it was Romney who issued the most responsible and presidential statement of everybody just thought our brave dissidents in Syria mobs storming American embassies and consulates.

They -- our policy they have historic grievances and they yours anti American as they can do.
Was it avoidable.
I mean this is something that we should -- -- like going back let's say two years three years is this something that you know that we actually didn't in any way you know -- avoided.
I think I think quite frankly all this.
What is exploding now has been building up for years and years and years I think there's a real pin compatibility.
Between American culture and between culture of the fundamentalist and the Islamic world.
This place is basically the whole place is there's a revolution underway and great religious awakening taking place.
Among the poor and the working class -- one thing they have is the Islamic faith they're very militant about it.
And they look at do you have a -- as the great Satan and the Americans and the others -- their cultural intrusions.

Our middle east policy is collapsing right before us.
What's the policy he enunciated at Cairo in 2009 -- -- the -- I -- -- do you support governor Romney -- governor Romney do anything different right now.
I don't know exactly what governor Romney would do right now but I do think the idea that they're attacking governor Romney because of some statement he made -- 10 o'clock at night.
That's an irrelevancy let me also say this incident -- video.
