I truly believe that the day I'm inaugurated.
-- not always as a country look at itself to -- the the world looks at America different.
If I'm reaching out to the Muslim.
They understand that I've lived in a Muslim country and I may be -- Christian.
But I also understand their point of view and so I'm intimately.
Concerned with what happens in these countries and the cultures and perspectives -- these folks -- And those are powerful tools for us to be able to reach out.
That was candidate Obama making what may have been the most grandiose promise on the 2008 campaign trail electing judging by the deadly violence now out of the Middle East president Obama's clearly failed to deliver on that statement.
As well as many others and while the violence has taken over the headlines.
It has really taken over the Oval Office as our president make sure to attend at least three campaign stops.
01 of the biggest international crises war unfolding before fall -- rise.
And then and a stunt that should have every American scratching their head our president turned down a meeting request with the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Those teams cited a scheduling conflict as the reason.
And still with us for the hour the one and only Donald Trump the the scheduling conflict your friends -- Letterman right and I see on the bridge program Letterman.
Well nobody understands this one and even from a purely political standpoint I cannot imagine why he turned down this request and this was a request from Israel essentially now.
And I cannot understand why he turned it down from a political standpoint.
It was amazing I mean people are going like what happened they don't understand let me.
But maybe we can get a little insight to this because remember he pushed Israel to 67 borders he abandoned -- the prime minister of Israel are closest ally in the Middle East.
In the Oval Office and he said I do you get in contact -- with me if you want me back because things were going his way.
-- this hot Mike incident.
With Russian president Nevada watch this there's this really takes your breath away.
After my election what is this hidden agenda I think maybe more important he is not a friend of Israel.
Obama is just not a friend of his and have so many Jewish friends of mind having fundraisers pharmacy -- you know what you're doing do you really understand what's going on.
And the fact that he wouldn't agree to a meeting recently has really had an impact on a lot of people and it's very interesting -- what he said to the Russian whoever was -- who by the way.
And you know who should have been there representing Russia.
And he wasn't there.
But what he said it.
It never bothered me maybe that's the way it bothers me done maybe it's not what is is -- -- -- what is it I have more like what is it what else is not telling us well.
If it bothers a lot of people I know what bothers you always bothered me less it shouldn't have been said certainly shouldn't have I think what bothered me is that you talk this way of sort of an open Mike you didn't always Wear -- Mike you know -- so I think that bothered me maybe more but.
What does bother me is that he is not a friend of Israel and people -- -- beginning to realize that.
Their -- pretty dangerous so got the situation.
This drives me nuts you tweeted about this a lot recently.
He never saw the Muslim Brotherhood coming.
Kicks Mubarak out hard to believe we're still giving them two billion dollars like.
And he surprised that the Muslim Brotherhood that said the Koran is our law in this century our way and and Jihad.
Is what you know the highest honor Hai is calling that's been their -- And he didn't see it coming maybe -- that who knows maybe likes that but the fact is.
Billions and billions of dollars goes to Egypt billions of dollars every year and we continue to pay it.
And -- kind of feel what's going on and why didn't he protect you Barack why didn't protect him why -- -- announce something he pushed him out like a dog.
And you know not only in that instance but other people -- that are in that same position as -- books say why should I be defending the United States -- if anything happens it.
If the tide goes against me they're gonna push me out also self.
It's a very very sad commentary and it.
You know when you talk about foreign policy and foreign policy presidents I think he goes down in the as the worst the worst in the history of.
It's custody clay is this is their foreign policy geez I got bin Laden and we couldn't show the body bin Laden does that spiking the football now -- -- around told anybody listening kill bin Laden.
Here's what bothers me too is they they blame this on this.
Video that was released this trailer to a movie that nobody -- seen and then Jay Carney spokesman actually says all know even if it's every embassy Tunisia and Sudan.
Libya for people to Navy SEALs and ambassador killed and then Jay Carney says this this isn't about that are attacking America.
As we said.
This is a fairly volatile.
Situation and it is in response not to United States policy.
Obviously the administration not -- the American people it is in response to.
-- -- we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting.
That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it but this is not a case.
Protests directed at the United States.
Writ large or at US policy this is in response to a video that is offensive.
And to Muslims.
That is -- why.
It is -- it's a good response to a lack of respect for our leaders and our country that is only -- using that as an excuse.
And they're continuously using it.
And anybody looking and viewing that video no that was made by total whack job -- no talent whatsoever and they know it to him.
That was in response and totally in response to a lack of respect for our country and our leadership.
I -- take a break -- -- back mr.
