-- -- segment tonight there is perhaps no one more qualified in the country right now to speak about the last days of -- presidential campaign.
There's Senator John McCain.
Four years ago he thought he would win the presidency now he has some very strong views on what will happen Tuesday night.
Also Senator McCain is furious furious about Libya I spoke with him last night.
Said -- first of all you surprised at the Libyan story hasn't gotten much traction in the media.
Well I guess surprise -- no word I'm very very deeply disappointed but.
I guess that I'm not shocked -- about it but it sure is reprehensible.
Do you think it's a protect the president played by the mainstream media where they just don't care about Libya.
I think it's some combination of that and other factors but I can tell you this is a case where four brave Americans lost their lives.
The most incompetent.
As far as national security is concerned.
That any administration in history it's either that -- Willfully deceiving the American people or maybe a combination of both.
Is it enough for the president to say that his administration is investigating and will get to the bottom of it.
There have been two previous attacks and our consulate the fact that there were warnings there's a report out today.
A meeting on they are now August 15 and the messages sent on sixteenth about.
The lack of security.
This is taken on all the earmarks bill of the classic scandal.
And cover up the cover up continues to go on.
Today we know that they have counterterrorism.
Security group which is supposed to meet and coordinate the agencies of government.
When there's an act of terror.
Never met and the president should go on television and tell the American people he was quick to go on television tell the American people about the raid.
That god been alive and have you heard any.
I get additional information from the present United States about this except that.
We'll have that an investigation and coincidentally.
That investigation will not be completed until after the election.
Do you believe that President Obama.
Is going to get away with it -- is the voters have heard this story I don't think it's gonna resonate.
Anywhere near the economy so they pretty much gonna get away with all of this.
Well I can tell you I'm hearing from veterans all over this country.
And talked to so many of and hearing from men and women or acted on active duty.
They have no trust and no confidence in this president says.
Their commander in chief.
Veterans all over America heard a level of anger that I have never seen before and I think that may affect.
Voting -- -- In the state like Florida where they have one point six million veterans -- -- and angry in a way that I have not seen before.
Because -- -- -- so where are we in -- presidential race this time four years ago.
You were running a little bit behind.
Barack Obama -- but you know we still a horse race.
What's the difference between.
Now and then I think the biggest -- now is that the present did not have a record in 2008 to defend.
And is still leads me to believe that this small number of undecided switch will probably make.
Or break this election now will probably swing to Mitt Romney that when they go into the ballot Booth.
History shows that undecideds generally break for the challenger.
In close races because they know can come -- so well.
I do think this weekend there's going to be troll Obama cycle by the mainstream media based upon.
The economy that that's going to be interest and to walk.
During his duties serious president.
From this tragedy -- storms sandy and that I appreciate the president's work.
There but I also think we expect -- to do that and I believe that this election should be about jobs and the economy.
Now four years ago in the debate you went light on Barack Obama about the Reverend Wright stuff and you didn't bring up a lot of his associations.
-- -- On a lot of the Chicago stuff you basically took the high road.
In the last debate Mitt Romney did not bring up the Libya stuff to any extent whereby he could have making it a bigger story.
Was that a mistake by the governor.
I feel strongly about Libya as you know bill my background my knowledge my love of the military I plead guilty I plead guilty.
Because I want to refugee camp and -- Turkish border and met a group of young women who have been gang raped.
Some parents who -- had their children's killed before their eyes.
And while I was president sits back and watches without even lifting a finger like giving weapons to them.
See I'm I'm angry and I'm upset.
And so maybe.
And that Romney whose background in very great success that I admire enormously.
Probably may not have as much of an emotional connection.
But I think he's run a great race I think he did a great job in the first debate and I think that I still believe he's gonna win hello we're -- be a played okay.
And -- the reference you just made was to the Syrian situation on the Turkish border.
And where the president is pretty much.
Step back from that would do when Coburn had -- a bit of anger them lifted a finger to help these people final question here.
Think back four years ago.
You thought you're gonna win you were campaigning as hard as I've seen anybody ever campaign.
Is there any difference between you and governor Romney on the trail.
No I don't think so I think he's -- he's got a great message she's got people inspired I think this clearly that first debate was it.
Seminal moment in American politics much less this campaign I think he's done a great job -- we can't thank you enough from Fargo, North Dakota.
Thanks again thanks for having me on bill.
The senate was in North Dakota campaigning for a Republican.
-- as a fact and.
