Let me ask you about two the president choices for his cabinet and it correct me if I'm wrong but I can't remember a time.
When the opposing.
Hey as opposed every single person that the president nominates for his cabinet pages they've been the rule.
If the president's going to be in charge of the government we have to giving the people he wants to run it.
But Republicans seem to be -- -- every single person that he that he has nominated this time around.
That was CBS news anchor Bob Schieffer on face the nation that was yesterday a -- he along with many on the left may be confused as to why Republicans are raising concern.
-- call for a president Obama's cabinet nominees thus far we hear on this program we're not.
I want to clear this up for Bob Schieffer and the rest of the liberal media will start with the nomination of John Brennan -- CIA director.
Who said we should not called terrorists -- -- -- really listen.
Nor does present policy this challenge as a fight against jihadist.
Describing terrorists in this way using a legitimate terms of -- god speaks to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal.
Risk giving these -- the religious legitimacy they desperately seek but in no way deserve.
-- legitimate Jihad and moving right along the nominee for secretary of state John Kerry voted for the 87 billion before I voted against that.
The number one reason he should not become the face of America brought -- because.
He once accused our brave US troops -- the following.
They had personally raped.
Cut off fears cut off -- us.
Taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power.
Cut off limbs.
Blown up bodies.
Randomly shot at civilians.
By the way that a similar thing in the Iraq War.
And then there's Chuck Hagel nominee for Defense Secretary and with his rocky past on Iran well it's no wonder that this choice is being questioned for example.
July 2001 he voted against extending sanctions on the country.
In 2007 he voted against calling the July 2008 he recommended establishing a US diplomatic mission in -- Ron.
And in his -- in 2008 he suggested the US can live with a nuclear Iran.
And last but certainly not least a nominee for Treasury Secretary Jack -- Mr.
-- John Hancock himself who falsely claim the Obama budget would not add to that that listen.
Senator I and I think it's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increase in the dead.
Joining me now -- own opinions on these sub prime nominees author and columnist Korea and -- Good to Syria they don't for a had a flu epidemic yeah I guess I thought.
This to me so let me see Jihad -- -- legitimate and we've gotta -- can't even say the rim or our Iranian revolutionary guard as a terror group.
Iran or Hezbollah I mean he's -- -- so what's your reaction right well that this is an all the liberal trick.
-- they've made.
It's like the scorched earth policy to argumentation.
-- -- retreat an argument burning the English language as they go with the we can't call them jihadist we can't call -- war on terrorism we can't talk.
Just tell us what to call what we'll have a debate.
But a full.
This list of nominees is that they are all white man -- on -- And -- big news sentinel lack of diversity just shocks -- what happen to like about what happened here.
That this is an outrage -- not a -- maybe he needs a book binders.
Just tomorrow yeah me -- -- FaceBook combined really unite as you know I just got back from from England which did not bought into this whole diversity enthusiasm.
On which really is the important point that on the gun crimes and keep hearing how no they aren't in Europe -- know there's some low and have -- -- If you compare white populations we have the same murder rate as Belgium.
It's not a gun problem it is a demographic.
Problem which liberals are the ones are pushing pushing pushing let's get more Collin Ferguson's and warm weather guy wants a shot up Fort -- why are they coming in to begin -- Hasan is as Fortis on part so you hear that they may come -- -- was on -- isn't coming down here tonight I couldn't believe it just breaking -- short time ago.
Nineteen Obama executive orders what happens -- he tries to bypassed congress on the Second Amendment.
And bike pass congress on article one section seven and use the fourteen amendment what happens on and -- is hung guns and on the deaths of.
What he shreds the constant it's not like it's an imperial president -- the constitution.
My sister did he tried to do it on guns even he wouldn't wouldn't do that and luckily we've often recently have this -- -- -- may be as many as nineteen executive order I think that -- guns they probably try to do it on on ammunition and honor clips.
I think we shouldn't.
We shouldn't you know responds with the next Republican president having executive -- we won't stay on abortion and we will just bail on abortionists and abortion -- -- back there if and I mean they they're not serious about doing anything about shootings in America Dianne Feinstein has a concealed carry permit for good reason she would have -- played the -- -- over reason and I'm already had a ends and I -- on that she was in danger so are other Americans including women like herself to the fastest growing group of gun owners are single women -- what did -- what what what are women supposed to do -- who are in danger.
And this business that New York is pushing through about banning DB.
Extra capacity -- Not -- bullets.
Okay -- like all liberals solutions this has nothing to do what the problem we're supposed to be addressing if you weren't going into a gun free zone -- all of these mass shooters still.
All but one since 1950 hadn't have shot up gun free zones.
You have time to drop the magazine and insert another -- you have time and preparation to have more than one dollar and it's only if you're the victim of a home invasion has that woman in Georgia was last week.
She her children are and she sees a man outside the -- our husbands -- -- -- of the top floor she hides in a closet.
Mean sure opens the door and got lesser -- shots.
T -- the crawl space in this guy -- shot.
With six bullets -- our guns and she wants she -- shot all six only five hit into a bush.
Isn't really good when you are a panicked woman protecting your children.
On and probably not constantly down of the -- range she slapped in the face and -- five times and yet he not only Williams he lived to thirty -- -- -- what does parent into 13 recruiters what she had not been as good a shot and only three of the bulletin had had hit her.
It's very well set I think that is probably the strongest argument mr.
coltart that I have heard about the -- argument and the -- an argument in the I don't know what you do a New York governor.
-- we -- be -- that he gets it that you -- arrest people that use sept eight bulletin editor and a home invasion well.
Not addressing David Gregory now going to let -- other Obama rules they all would go to the rules do not apply to Dianne Feinstein or David battery I would also remind you that when Colin Ferguson shot up the LI IR no Don if she stopped and you -- it.
It doesn't sell off a multiple victim public shooter.
You can bring you lots of -- -- by the way they're lawbreakers they might have what it was an extra capacity magazine on the -- the person who was defending her home means -- get to the -- or perhaps any magazine I got to run good to see you thank you.
