I'm gonna look segment tonight a pal Charles Krauthammer closely watching the presidential race and getting paid very well to do so he joins now from Washington.
-- what has been governor Romney's biggest mistake so.
But not enough to do your show -- out of the business everybody you're joking.
But we have a call into the governor and when we asked very politely very respectfully law.
Got about a month right you need to give us a time -- here I think he's going to do it but.
Your point -- -- go.
Look here's a recent.
He's gone small ball he's not gonna win election small -- with -- Obama what do I mean by that.
He's got these slogans every week he's hit and run attacks one off instead of making more general arguments.
That the media which are not inclined to be nice to Romney.
And that inclined to ignore stories are -- blue Obama.
The media would then have to report give you a concrete example.
All right we've got the full collapse of Obama's middle east policy happening around the world.
Embassies of flame al-Qaeda flags hoisted over for American embassies.
You've got this whole thing clearly.
The Obama policy of accommodation apology.
And appealing and with the Arab and the Muslim world which he proclaimed so openly is in collapse so we did does Romney sees the opportunity.
No he does a one off a tactic correct attack I would say.
On the statement issued by the Cairo embassy which was a groveling apology.
But -- -- runs away from and what he should have done -- to give a speech to make the argument that the groveling apology from the Cairo embassy was simply one example.
Of the way that Obama and the administration have treated.
The Middle East -- a way to say if we're really in icu if we talk with the Malaysian Iran and we try to -- talk of out of their weapons if we -- -- we refuse to support.
The revolution against the regime there and all that.
If we -- do from behind in the area we are going to be like did everything will be nice so the problem I have.
Is that here is Obama -- very the vulnerable.
Remember this is the one election worries ahead on the issue of foreign affairs Democrats are usually way behind.
Why because -- Osama bin Laden is dead.
So a week before the eruption of this anti Americanism the Democrats spend a week in Charlotte touting the bin Laden raid.
And way of saying you know we've now fixed the problem.
These demonstrations over a complete.
And they are a -- or refute the way to refute the whole idea that this has been ineffective I was all right -- union -- should have seized the.
Opportunity run with it played quite -- -- you and I and I said -- -- The right wing press talk radio.
People who really don't like President Obama and running with -- -- story for weeks.
-- -- -- cover up.
People the White House wanna do you think that it was just the spontaneous action what was an al-Qaeda operation -- -- they executed it.
And they don't want you to know.
-- -- thank you thank -- -- mainstream media largely ignored it.
But the -- -- now go -- got now people seem to care about -- -- they don't seem to care enough about.
That theater of the world.
I think it's so intense here economically.
But I think the only chance Mitt Romney has.
Is to come in on Wednesday night -- -- you know -- This guy's screwed up the economy and if he continues down the road you think it's bad now.
We DC -- two years from now and they just took off that's gonna happen is almost like a doomsday scenario.
That's what I would advise Romney.
Well three points in a row I am not talking about.
We ought to do in debates in debates you don't make a large speeches like that.
But on tiger writers are ways around the campaigns extremely small and tactical not strategic second huge brought up -- -- thing and people -- uninteresting.
If so if Romney had given a speech had made the argument.
That this is part it -- simply a symptom.
Of a larger development of our whole foreign policy and collapse.
Of the fact that the al-Qaeda which he -- -- -- -- spike -- the football for a week.
Al-Qaeda is back you know what we we've got a new slogan for -- -- Biden.
Which is -- bin Laden dead al-Qaeda -- That was the meeting of all this in that case then you could have made the case.
You could have attached to -- story that is a conspiracy sort of cover up story.
But you would say UBB a larger argument the reason they had to covered -- they reason they had to pretend it was all about a demonstration.
And about a video.
Is because they can't admit.
That there -- Qaeda strategy which they -- is out and out right.
Is completely exploded so if you create the larger context and you can put all the little events.
Which otherwise you're gonna go unnoticed.
Especially by the media.
You put them in context that's what was missing.
Yeah I thought you would get -- -- with al-Qaeda is back and -- going to be.
The target number one and I have a -- -- but that's gonna have to be next week are.
